I was wondering if WGA could implement historical unit emblems into the game as a category.  For example, the US 1st Armored Division that served in WW2:

 

 

Or the Polish 1st Armoured Division that served under the British during WW2:

 

 

I don't believe the images are copyrighted as historical minis manufacturers both large and small don't have to license the icons to make decals.   I know that I would much rather put historical markings on my tanks (and pay for them in $$) than random Russian city flags or U.S. States and Territories.

  That would help a lot.

I forgot to mention that particularly objectionable units associated with organizations guilty of committing crimes against humanity like anything SS should be excluded.

Those are some good examples as well and it can't hurt to suggest them!

Love this! :)  Let me create a page where I can log historical unit emblems.  I just want to make sure we do our research for each and one of them before they get pushed as real emblems for implementation.

 

For now, I'm going to pin post and follow the suggestions.

 

KEEP THE COMING!

 

Tanks!

Hi RaiBOT,

 

I would like the emblem for the 761st tank battalion, which is on the Wikipedia page here:

 

https://en.m.wikiped..._(United_States)

 

And for C Company, 1st Corps Medium Tank Battalion.  I don't have a direct image for them, but there is a lot of pictures and some video at www.tanksontarawa.com

 

Thanks!

It's an emblem of a decorated unit. Seems qualified to me.

A popular comic book character appearing in an upcoming Captain America movie?

 

to be clear, this isn't political in any way, just as it wasn't political when they actually fought in world war 2.

Well I was about to suggest the DAK but no Swastika, er maybe with the tilted cross instead? 

 

Or how about squadron emblems, very dashing and comes four variants; A (triangle) B (square) C (circle) Regimental HQ (Diamond).

Plenty of good British one around, being able to have the coloured squadron emblems would be neat

How about the Guards divisions for the Soviet army? The turret insignia would replace the red star with this:

 

And you could have the inscription added: Za Chest Gvardiya (In Cyrillic, obviously) which means 'for the honour of the guards'.
