    A little trivia, one thing that i noted by the ss in the BTS official website:

    All icons for infantary use the Military Symbols of Nato. But i don't know if that's the same case for the ships and airplanes.


    Example:



    see?


    PS: That's for those that were wondering why Road To War use this ugly symbols :goodjob: .

    PSS: I hope that this is the right answer :crazyeye:

    Yes, correct. :) And ships/air use NATO symbols too.

    However note that instead of the pips indicating unit size (corp, battalion, army) they indicate advancement.

    3 pips = early infantry
    4 pips = improved infantry
    5 pips = advanced infantry
    5 pips + red line = modern infantry

    You won't be getting head-shot icons as there are multiples of various types (4 infantry) making it impossible to decifer between them.

    However revamped icons will be in beta 3.

    Check this link to see the new icons: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=237294
