I vote POLAND.

They have such a cool mix of Eastern and Western weapons and armor. Plus Polish troops can be found around the world in many hot spots today. :D

My vote would have to be for Russian forces, they are still a huge military power.

However having some Polish forces in the EFTF would be fairly cool.

Well it could be that the EFTF will be part of Russia....they are buying us up at an alarming rate.

The question is which would Turkey be... MEA or EFTF?

well turkey is becoming part of the EU isnt it so would be EFTF at a guess.

best bet would be Russia i think as the biggest military left out of the 1st game. plus probably israel because of all the MEA armies around.

Well there is currently a fight going on in Turkey between the secularists and a fairly religious goverment who want to change the constitution to make it more religious (or something like that), so it could really go either way.

As for Israel and Russia I am sure they will both be factions rather than subfactions.

Adding the US Army would be a natural way to enlarge the USMC and give them some different stuff. I am not sure what sub-faction would naturaly occur for the PLA but I like the idea of having a milita style PLA as well, where they actually get hordes of humanity cheaply.

Religon and government are seperated in Turkey - so you can't get Imans into government. The army is concerned because the current president is heavily influenced by the conservative religious movement, and wants to place more power into their hands. The Army is against this, seperation of church and state and all that, and so friction is born....

I vote for Russia or African Warlords. I have dreams of re-fighting "The Wild Geese" in a crumbling Africa of 2017....

Nothing to do with the topic, but Megatron and Drahazar, could you rein in those avatars? they're so huge that they make the actual text column irritatingly narrow :)

I second the Rein in your Avatars post. Thank You. Which reminds me Mine looks a bit large too. :oops: Edit: Fixed!

I would like to see India. They have more influence as each year goes by;
Plus with the small bushfires they get into their experience level is not as bad as many think.
