^ Actual combat game play looks a lot like CoH2.

I noticed Quill streaming last night but didn't have the time to watch the entire video.  At least not enough to post my opinions about the campaign at this moment.

I was a bit surprised that the first thing I heard about this was your post and minutes later Twitch suggested that stream of a playable game by Quill.

So far the AI does not use tanks much. Which makes it a little easy in the battles I have fought so far.

I notice their is an mixed African American Bazooka unit for the Americans that a huge thread is in progress about on the forums. I have no problem with that. In fact I wish the devs went back to the coh2 commander model and made a commander that turned all your troops into African Americans so you could play the all African 92nd. That way it would be a little more realistic. The debate has made me interested to know what the percentage of African Troops was though. I think 1.2 million African Americans served in ww2, but only a tiny percentage of those were allowed into combat roles. It is hard to find statistics on how many actually fought as front line soldiers. I remember a movie about Hellcat Tank Destroyer units and Artillery units.

Not sure if you guys can see the thread.....
