British Forces for Companies of Heroes 2

Continuing from before, we will create the British Army roster.


The focus is to give Allied forces the late armor punch and heavy artillery support.  We’re also adding new functionality, towed artillery.  These fixed guns rent trucks to tow the placed artillery to a new position.  The trucks cost munitions and, like portee, make the item more fragile.  British level similar to the original forces in the base game, building a tier one building, the hospital, tier two, infantry command, and three, armor support command center.

Tier 0:

The British start with a sapper unit, similar to the Wehrmacht Ostheer pioneer unit.

Tier 1:

The British will get a core four man rifleman unit with upgrade-able PIAT and Bren LMG.  Also at this level they van build the infamous Vickers HMG.  This HMG can be fire indirectly, doing light damage and pining units outside it’s line of sight.  Finally,  the British has the 6 ponder AT gun and the Bren Universal Carrier as a half track.

Tier 2:

Here the British get their first towable  weapon, the Bofos 40mm.  This AA gun also easily remove light armor and infantry.  For the first tow-able artillery unit, the British receive the 25 ponder.  For the first Tank they receive the Valentine.

Tier 3:

The final tier holds all of their heavy weapons which are 17 ponder tow-able AT gun, the 75 ponder tow-able howitzer, and the Cromwell tank.  I think the the Matilda heavy infantry tank belongs in the army as well due to it’s iconic role.

Airborne Commander:

The British need the Royal air force represented.  This means including the British Paras with equitable SMGs.  We can include the 3″ airborne mortar they used as well.  To represent the British working with local forces, we could give them the Russian Irregular call-in.

Royal Engineers:

The commander could include the 4.2″ mortar and the Sexton mobile artillery piece.  They could also give some upgrade options for the sappers or call in a new sapper unit with more firepower.

British Expeditionary Force

This force could include some elite infantry.  This would mean sharpshooters (snipers), heavy assault troops, and the 4.2″ mortar.  Finally we find a place for the Churchill heavy tank.
