Hope tuore doesn't mind a new thread on Techs. Tossing some ideas out

Ships-

Code:
Frigates
Destroyers
Cruisers
Battleships
Light Carriers
Heavy Carriers
Transports
Submarines
Nuclear Submarines

Basically any and all ship types from the 1990-2020 era can fit into one of these 9 categories. As navies downsized post-WW2 frigates became more important, especially for small countries with mainly littoral fleets. The light and heavy cruiser distinction blurred as a single "cruiser" type came to dominate (in most cases just a sized-up destroyer) and battlecruisers, proven useless after the Alaska-Class "failure" faded from fleets by the 1950's. Battleships where a relic of the past but the United States still had them in 1990 (indeed the Missouri provided fire support in the Gulf War). Carriers could be divided into groups, either smaller carriers (Charles de Gaulle (R91)) or "super-carriers", like the Nimitz Class. I think the rest speaks for itself. I would think we could have a "nuclear reactor" addon, as there are Nuclear-powered cruisers (California Class)


Air Force

Code:
Multi-Role Fighters (MRF)
Interceptors
Strike Bombers
Naval Bombers
Strategic Bombers
Transports
Close-Air Support (CAS)

MRF, Interceptors, and Strike Bombers are in many cases the same craft just modified for their specific roles. Historically dedicated "escort" fighters ended after WW2 as they simply couldn't keep up with Strategic Bombers. CAG upgrades could come with MRF, or a separate tree that requires appropriate MRF and Strike aircraft to have been researched.

Also, we need to do more than just cut and paste the tech teams from MDS. That can work as a stopgap solution but, for example, Lockheed Martin didn't exist in 1990. Neither did ThyssenKrupp. I've already gone through and "fixed" the USA and German tech teams.

Modern Military Doctrine needs to be taken into account. Such as Jungle warfare, Military Policing, Combined Special Forces, Covert Military Operations, Over-watch etc. Also unfortunately I do not have the time to research this area. However each of the larger nations like US, USSR, France, UK, Japan, China etc. Will need to research what are the different doctrines that are floating about.

Because this scenario is in starts in 1990 most of the Large Countries will have these techs already because of historical conflicts in the past. e.g. UK a huge number of "small wars" since ww2: http://www.britains-smallwars.com , the US had: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_history_of_the_United_States#Cold_War_.281945.E2.80.931991.29

Okay, thanks. I'll work on the rest of the tech files when I have the time. Currently I'm busy with my TDY mod, which is supposed to be released in 8 days.
