    Glad to see you've made yourself a decent mod for Croatia.
    I've been there, done some peacekeeping in your part of the world.

    Really don't know how to talk to you, too many memories. Sorry.
    But I wanted to say, good work on your mod.
    Hope everything is working out for you all these days.
    (Zagreb? Been there. I've been all over. :D )

    I'm not sure if the two mods are merged. Check out LAnkou's SuperCiv mod.

    Parlez vous Francais?

    Guard and Garde are not the same

    Gardijska brigada nije Stražarska brigada :p

    Well, here's my reasoning. The name Guard brigade would be somewhat misleading, since theyre not really meant to guard. The concept was for them to provide an alternative strategy to regular gameplay. Instead of making tanks the bulk of your forces, mechanized infantry takes their place and is supported by airforce.

    Airforce weakens the enemy, you use a tank or two to break their front lines, and then Garde brigades pour through the breakthrough and deep into hostile territory and wreak havoc. Sounds familiar?

    So, I went for a bit of fancier name(Delboy Trotter would support my choice) since Guard would imply defence only and would be more apropriate for some kind of unique machine gunner. More of a WWI scenario unit.

    I think unit is an excellent choice, they really proved effective in war, and as you say, they aren't really tank heavy.

    Historically Guard brigades does not imply defense at all (stražarske), at least to me. The term does come from elite troops whose task was originally to protect the commander (like the famous Napoleon's Garde), but later it extended to mean elite troops in general. For example, in WW II, Soviets had them and so on.

    Exactly, and where did most of Napoleons' Garde come from? Illyric provinces. Ergo, Croats. :D

    Illyric provinces weren't in Croatia only. :)

    BTW, nice location you have there. Too bad the English don't understand it.

    Sacred wolven groves are better kept away from the eyes of infidels. And dont worry, Slovenia mod is not too far away.

    They got it via latin Croatus. It's the closest those Romans could do ;)

    Anima does the permission you gave me to upload to civilizacija.net extend to subsequent versions like this one?
