.:Welcome to the D-day website:.

D-day is a modification for the highly acclaimed computer game Red Alert 2 and its expansion Yuri's Revenge. It changes Red Alert 2's original cartoony and arcade style gameplay into a more realistic World War II theme.

There are over a thousand new units to build and fight with, spanning from the early beginnings of the conflict in the 1920's onto a hypothetical what-if continuation of the war into the 1960's and beyond.

.:Tigers of the World:.

The Panzer VI Tiger is arguably the most famous and recognizable tank in the world, becoming the icon of the German tank forces of World War II. It's use was not limited to the German army though, several other countries used or planed to use Tigers during and after the war. Here are a few of them.

For more information and pictures click of the unit names to visit their D-day Wiki pages.



Type 4 Tiger
Typ4_3d.gif


Typ4.jpg

In April 1943 the Japanese sent 12 army officers led by Colonel Ishide to Germany to inspect and test their latest tank designs. The Japanese where quite impressed and negotiated to buy four of the tanks and their related documents and blueprints, the PzKfw III Ausf.J, PzKfw III Ausf.N, PzKfw V Panther Ausf.D and PzKfw VI Tiger. They hoped that they could be reverse engineered and the technology incorporated into Japanese designs. One of the PzKfw III's was dissembled and along with the documents transported back to Japan via submarine. February 1944 the Tiger tank was moved to Bordeaux in France so it could be prepared for transport. With the worsening war situation and then the Allied Landings in France it became impossible to transport the tank to Japan. In September 1944 the Japanese decided to give the tank back to the Germans where it was soon destroyed fighting in Belgium.

Note: The Germans charged the Japanese twice the normal price for the tiger. So in keeping with historical accuracy in D-day the price of the Type 4 is double that of the German version.


PzKpfw VI Tiger

In May 1944 the Germans gave 10 PzKpfw VI Tiger tanks to the Hungarians and then a further 3 more as a birthday gift to the Hungarian Inspector of Engineers Laszlo Hollósy kuthy. They served in the Hungarian 3rd Tank Regiment, where in July they took part in the battle for Galizien district in Southern Ukraine. By December 1944 only 4 of them where still active, the fate of the final 4 is unknown but they where presumably destroyed during the Soviet invasion of Hungary.



T-VI-100
Tvi100_3d.gif


Tvi100.jpg

During the course of World War II Soviet forces where able to capture many German tanks in various states of disrepair, if at all possible they would be put into services against their former owners. These tanks generally had a short life span due to limited spare parts and ammunition. In an effort to help elevate the later problem several projects where started to refit the German tanks with Soviet weapons. One of these was the T-VI-100 which replaced the PzKfw VI Tiger's 88mm KwK36 L/56 with the 100mm D10 which was used on the SU-100 and later the T-54. As the war progressed the Soviets where able to produce an ample amount of tanks so the need to refit the German tanks diminished and the project was cancelled in 1945.



T-41/75N
Tig75_3d.gif


Tig75.jpg

After the war a single Tiger tank was recovered from the battlefield and repaired by Skoda for use as a test bed for fitting their prototype 75mm A18 cannon. The A18 was originally built for use in the T-25 medium tank, the T-25 however was never put into production and it wasn't till now that the Skoda team could test it in a suitable vehicle. While the 75mm A18 was less powerful then the original 88mm KwK36 it was fitted with an auto-loader and drum magazine witch greatly increased the tanks rate of fire. Currently there are no known photographs of this unusual modification.

Note: To simulate the auto-loader and drum magazine this unit has a limited ammunition supply that can be fired quickly but then takes some time to reload.



Tiger 131
131_3d.gif


131.jpg

Tiger 131 is the only working PzKfw VI Tiger tank in the world, it currently resides in Bovington Tank Museum and features as the main star in the museum's yearly tank festival. Tiger 131 was constructed in February 1943 at the Henschel factory at Kassel and was then sent to Tunisia in North Africa. On 20th April 1943 it took part in the battle for Djebel Djaffa hill, during witch it received several hits form British Churchill tanks that jammed the turret and gun, as well as injuring the driver and gunner. The crew then bailed out leaving their disabled but still intact tank for British forces to capture. The tank was repaired using parts from other knocked-out tigers and sent back to Britain where it was displayed as a war trophy in various locations around the country for the rest of the war. In 1951 it was then donated to Bovington Tank Museum who put it on static display for the next 40 years. In 1990 it was then removed for restoration which involved a complete disassembly and reassembly of all it's parts. As well as fitting it with a new engine from a Tiger II, as the original had been cut in half for display at the museum. The restoration of Tiger 131 was finally finished in 2003, becoming the only tiger tank in the world to be restored to working condition.

Note: Because of the uniqueness of this tank and in homage of the fact it is the only working Tiger in the world, only one Tiger 131 can be built at a time.

.:Japanese GUI and buildings:.

The Japanese are back with a new sidebar and several new buildings, which when built give you access to new superweapons. Also in this screenshot is a new style of cameo, which replaces the monochromatic sepia coloured cameos previously used with full colour renders. Lastly this was taken on a new map that I will be posting more about in the coming weeks, along with several others.

This is a new more historically correct version of the barracks, based on a structure built by the Japanese on Saipan.

The Special Research Unit is a chemical weapons lab that gives you the ability to build chemical spreading tanks and use the Contaminate superweapon. Which releases a large gas cloud that will slowly damage any units or buildings within it's area.

Note: I was reluctant to add this building/support weapon due to the sensitive nature of Japan's use and research of chemical/biological weapons. Because of the sensitive nature tho, Japan's use of such weapons during the war isn't widely known. I thought this might be a good way to raise awareness and possibly inspire players to research about it themselves.

The Special Attack Unit gives you the ability to build kamikaze units, as well as accesses to the MXY7 Ohka superweapon, a specialised piloted rocket equipped with a large warhead.

The Joint Operations Centre Is used by the post-war Japanese Self Defence Force sub-faction to coordinate with their American allies and call in B-47 Stratojet airstrikes on enemy targets.

Note: The JSDF as it's name implies is a defensive force and as such doesn't have any large or long range offensive weaponry. They instead rely upon their American allies to support them if they enter into a war.

25TP
25tp_3d.gif
25tp.jpg

In 1936 the Polish army started a design competition for a new medium tank. The KSUS company submitted a design inspired by the multi-turreted British A6 and Soviet T-28 tanks. BBTBr.Panc then submitted a modified version of KSUS's design fitted with a more powerful engine and a Bofors gun. A wooden mock-up of BBTBr.Panc's design was built but the invasion and annexation of Poland by Germany and the Soviet Union stopped all work on the project.


Note:
During it's development the tank's official name was simply "medium tank" (Czolgi Sredni). The designation 25TP was created by historian Janusz Magunski post-war to help differentiate it from other Polish tank projects.


53TP
53tp_3d.gif
53tp.jpg

This tank design was submitted to the Polish army in 1939 by Professor Antoniego Markowskiego. It was quite an advance design with heavily sloped amour and a large 120mm cannon. Not much is know other then the brief design proposal, even if it would have been excepted though Polish industry at that time would have struggled to produced such a large and complex tank.


Note:
This tank received no official designation and was was simply called "heavy tank" (Czolg Ciezki). I have used the name 53TP in accordance with Polish armoured nomenclature to help differentiate it.


220TP
220tp_3d.gif
220tp.jpg

This monstrous tank equipped with a 155m cannon in it's main turret along with twin 40mm anti-air guns in a secondary turret at the rear was designed by Stanisław Lem the famed science fiction writer. Lem worked as a mechanic in Lwówin for most of the war, during this time he also created several different tank and rocket designs. In October 1944 he submitted them to the Soviet State Defence Committee, in hopes that they may help in liberating Poland from the Nazis. The Soviets had no interest in them though and filed them away in their archives, where they remained forgotten until recently when they were discovered by a Russian historian.


Note:
This tank received no official designation and was was simply called "battleship tank" (Czolg Pancernik). I have used the name 220TP in accordance with Polish armoured nomenclature to help differentiate it.

.:Chi-Ri Tanks:.

Moving back to Japan, here are four variants of the Type 5 Chi-Ri, their last & largest tank of WW2.


Click of the unit names to visit their D-day wiki page for more information & pictures.


Type 5 Chi-Ri (Plan 1)
Chi_ri0_3d.gif
Chi_ri0.jpg

With the threat of invasion looming in 1945 the Japanese started work on the Type 5 Chi-Ri, a tank that could defeat anything the Americans world throw at them. However with limited time and resources it was decided to split the Chi-Ri project into two variants. Plan 1 would using the best of the current tank technology in order to start production as soon as possible and Plan 2 would instead explored a new experimental design. Soon after it was decided that Plan 1 would be dropped and work would concentrate on the Plan 2 design.


Type 5 Chi-Ri
Chi_ri_3d.gif
Chi_ri.jpg

Japan's last and greatest tank design of the war. The Type 5 Chi-Ri was an experimental design fitted with a 75mm cannon and a new belt fed auto loading system, which would have given the Chi-Ri the ability to fire a shell every 2 seconds! To deal with such a high rate of fire the gun was placed in large turret which could also store 100 rounds of ammunition. An incomplete prototype was captured by the Americans after the war and taken back to America but sadly all trace of it was then lost.


Note:
It has been a long held belief that the Chi-Ri was planed to be fitted with a 88mm cannon but no mention of this can be found in Japanese documents. It is believed to be a presumption made by the Americans forces who captured it and has since been repeated in English history books.


Type 5 Chi-Ri (TRI)
Chi_ri_tri_3d.gif
Chi_ri_tri.jpg

During the development of the Type 5 Chi-Ri several different experimental wheel and suspension designs where proposed. In the end it was decided to use the same suspension used on previous designs to cut down on development time. The one seen here was designed by the Technical Research Institute, known as the Chidori suspension it used eight interwoven road wheels supported by torsion bars in a similar manner to German Panther and Tiger tanks.


Type 5 Chi-Ri (MHI)

During the development of the Type 5 Chi-Ri several different experimental wheel and suspension designs where proposed. In the end it was decided to use the same suspension used on previous designs to cut down on development time. The one seen here was designed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, known as the Bugatti suspension it used six large road wheels paired to three coil springs.
