Yes or no?
No, I don't think HOI3 is modern warfare it is clearly stated it to be WW2 era warfare.
Are you suggesting an expansion to HoI3 that would have fight in the modern world? WW 3?
The problem with that is the fact that there are enough nukes in Russian and USA arsenals to wipe out everything alive, so all games would end up very, very horribly
That said, I am sure someone would make a modern warfare mod for HoI3.
If you have problems with getting into Personal Unions in EUIII, adopt "keep your %@#$ in your pants" policy with regards to Royal marriages.
As a suggestion?
frankly I dont think that HOI3 works too well for the modern era. Certain weapon systems are just difficult to approximate, and then you have the whole MAD issue which means that all wars between majors would likely end with walking through downtown dc being shot at by super mutants. I dont really know how they can model stuff like ssgns, ssbns etc or various other issues. Also unless you have a war between majors any conventional conflict that doesnt degenerate into guerrilla warfare becomes a little boring.
If you want a really good modern warfare wargame I recommend Harpoon, though I personally havent played it in a while, having overplayed it before, also its more for naval warfare rather than land.
Of course... a Modern Warfare expansion for HOI-3 (including thermonuclear armageddon) would open the door to a subsequent "Giant Mutant Cockroaches Take Over the World" expansion.

GORDONCZ WORKS presents:
Finest Hour is a large-scale mod created for Hearts of Iron 3. The main goal of this mod is to convert the game into a more authentic simulation of the World War 2 era. With its focus on accuracy, immersion and plausibility, Finest Hour will let you relive the history and change the future as you will lead your nation through the greatest conflict ever seen.

- Entirely new map of the world
- New graphical look of the interface
- Completely reworked events and decisions
Id like to see a separate new game series from them about the cold war era much rather then a Hearts of Iron game.
Hearts of Iron is about WW2 or a possible WW3 starting in the forties, any attempts to take it later haven't ended up well due to for example inability to model insurgencies, missile & satellite warfare and demobilization.

YES! Exclude nukes and put it in near future (like 2015-2030) then it would be better than WW2 era game.
Problem with WW2 and world map is that most regions are a bit useless. Whole outcome of the war is mainly resolved in Europe. Skirmishes elsewhere are not that meaningfull.
Near future would have much larger number of powerfull countries and their geographical location would be more dispersed.

Interested in extremely well thought of realistic hardcore near future SCIFI setting? Check out 2300AD. Mankind has just started to colonize nearby starsystems and encountered the first alien species
This would be great though the game would be more focused on Diplomacy and economy rather than warfare, in effect a sort of vicky though more specialised with regard to espionage, international trade and diplomacy. Where war could of course be possible but would if it involved the 2 nuclear camps resulting in game end or some other bizarre stability.
Games like shadow president or conflict middle east both pretty old are what I am thinking about.
It would be great if paradox implemented this.
But I would like to see a political simulation taking place in ours days. A political simulation somehow like Victoria 2, with a heavy focus on domestic policy and little wars and interventions here and there.
Why not make an expansion based on WW1 !?!?! I mean, I know there are mods out there but devs could make an official expansion, covering WW1, maybe even Boer war, with an added possiblity to play from 1900 to 1954 or at least from 1918 to 1954
But then again, being blind substantially opens up ones dating pool
At a higher level, it's possibly an interesting period, but that's not where HOI's strengths lie.

No thanx... Then I'd prefer more WW2 HOI3 expansions :-)
Hmm... I would more prefer a game where u could do uprising against the government and create a new country, like in Jugoslavia, that would be AWESOME !
