Moar Units has proved very popular (75,000+ active subscriptions!). However a significant issue with it is that it is effectively two mods rolled into one:
1) A mod that adds additional Global Units.
2) A mod that adds another 2 Unique Units to (some) Civilizations.
Steel & Thunder is a revised version of (1), splitting out this component of Moar into its own standalone mod.
If anyone wants to reuse any of the Unit art from Moar it is all available here:
This mod is meant to be used INSTEAD of Moar Units not with it!
