Here are some samples of my custom Germany expansion I am creating for Warfighter. I have included both some player soldiers and some of the weapons that the German military uses. Hopefully I will be done in a week or two and I will try and get a pdf posted in the file section. I would appreciate any feedback(good or bad) on what people think of the cards in my samples. I am also working on a French Special Forces expansion and also have a Spanish Special Forces expansion planned. I have even thought of doing a few adversary expansions. Maybe an East Asia(North Korea) expansion or an East Africa(Somalia) expansion.

I reviewed the weapons stats and everything looks good to me with two minor quibbles.

The G3A3 has kill numbers of 7/9 at range 0/1 respectively. This is slightly worse than many assault rifles, including the M-16 family (which is 5.56mm) and the 7.62mm chambered MK14s and MK17s, and the same as the 5.45mm AK-74 family, which is generally not well-regarded for its accuracy.

Unless the G3A3 has a reputation for being more inaccurate than other 7.62mm rifles (I believe it has the opposite reputation, actually), I would change it to be 7/8.

The MP5A3 is identical in every way to the MP5 card already included in the base set. It has a collapsing stock, which should make it somewhat easier to carry than the MP5. Perhaps a loadout cost of 1? That said, the MP5K, which is definitely smaller than the MP5A3 has a load-out cost of 1, so perhaps you didn't want to go down that route.

So, that doesn't need to be changed - just thought I'd mention it.

I don't have any experience in trying to design Warfighter soldiers yet, so I can't comment on the RP costs for the soldiers. How did you figure them out, or did you just estimate them based on similar soldiers already in the set?

Thanks for the input, I appreciate it very much and will take your comments into consideration. Coming up with stats is harder than it looks, lol. As for the player soldiers, I think I figured out the formula that DVG uses. The formula checks out with almost all of the player soldiers in all expansions. I think there a few oddball player soldiers that it does not work out exactly. I can send you the formula and info if you are interested.

Schulhof, Reichen and Losch are Names that could be german - but they sound somewhat weird for german ears... (Especially "Schulhof" which translates into "Schoolyard").

And it might be useful to have a second look at the german flag... cool

Good catch on the flag. I will make the change right away. As for the names, all I did was use a German last name generator I found on the internet. Can you suggest some more authentic German names? If you can, I will switch the names you mentioned. Thanks for the input on the cards.

German flag has been fixed. Don't know how I totally got the flag wrong. Thanks again for the correction.

Changed the soldier names Schulhof, Reichen and Losch to different names as was suggested. Schulhof is now Schumann, Reichen is now Sturm and Losch is now Mueller.

…so do all who live to see such times but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
