Fate of a Nation - 1967 vs. 1973 Equipment and Units

Recommended Posts

Howdy all!  With the new Fate of a Nation dropping, a lot of people have asked what equipment was available in 1967 vs. 1973.  As a contributing writer for the project, I'd tried to put a lot of these details in the flavor text for the units, but there were a few issues.  First and foremost, FoaN is a single game - we didn't want to create a hard division between the time periods.  It is also points compatible with 'Nam (IDF vs. NVA anyone???), so the goal was to create as streamlined an experience as possible.  Second, details of some of the units are a bit sketchy and several references contradict each other - do deep digging is often required and even then may not yield 100% differentiation.  Finally, there were many space and layout considerations that resulted in some text needing abridgment in the final product.

That being said, I've been going back through my notes and updating them to create a series of tables showing what was used in the 1967 and 1973 wars respectively.  These are somewhat living documents, and I'll be updating them as I go along and get better data.  However, here are some links to the first pass versions:

Thx for both your book and online contributions. The depth and breadth are quite impressive.
