There's no reason for a lantern if there aren't night maps yet.
This seems like a pretty interesting squad i would like it.

Would you like a day night/weather cycle though?

i do think weather and stuff mgiht make the gmae mroe intresting as it not going to be sunny all the time
Abbott Jan 8 @ 4:12pm 
i dont understand the lantern anyway... not like it wards off anything just gives away position. Light and noise discipline at night is the military way
Bishop Jan 8 @ 4:19pm 
My suggestion from about a month ago, US marine squad.

NCO: M1911 pistol, Mk1/2 grenade. Call in MG fire/Gas/Arty
Rifleman: Springfield 1903 with bayonet.
Gunner: Chauchat (upgrade to BAR at high squad level say 75+)
Grenadier: Springfield 1903 + Mk1/2 grenades.

If there was a day/night shift and you are protecting your newly captured point at night time, you would need a lantern to see if there is an enemy, the description was a mess up on my part.

i dont see the point in adding american units, they were not in most of the war
[Poke☆] Tommy Jan 8 @ 4:49pm

NCO: Steyr M1912, M15

Gunner: Schwarzlose, Steyr M1912
Grenadier: Steyr Mannlicher M1912 and M15 grenades

Yes I know, but as some people said. Just because this game is called "Verdun" does not mean it is only 1916. Plus what other country mained with the Trench Gun?

The Americans should get just as much representation as the British and the French...there should be regular army, Marines, and maybe dismounted cav. If you want to see Americans of fight as them hit me up I will be making a petition to add the amis after full release.

maybe instead of a rifleman or grenadier there would be a trench gunner equiped with a trench gun and maybe some grenades.
look up on my part, Bishop is making an idea for a squad like the Landsers and Poilus
Bishop Jan 8 @ 6:08pm 
Devs have said they want the game to be balanced squad wise with the types, So if theirs a Standard, light and storm troops both sides have at least 1 squad of that type.

For example they've hinted they will make a British Tommy Squad after the Canadians, it'd fill the same role as the Poilus does but have different equipment and uniforms. Only thing they need to add would be a Lewis gun and Webley service revolver and the new tag.

Oh I did mention in that thread I dropped the Trench gun as it's controvertial. Could be an upgrade for the Grenadier.
