Emblem of U.S. Army 23rd HQ Special Troops

Arguably the most unique, creative and unusual military unit that ever existed during WWII was the U.S. Army 23rd Headquarters Special Troop, otherwise known as “Ghost Army” or “Phantom Army”. This Unit was made up by the 603rd Camouflage Engineers, the 406th Combat Engineers and the 3132nd Signal Service Company Special which answered directly to Gen. Omar Bradley. The idea for this unit was originally conceived in late 1942 after British Units in the African Deserts during the Battle at El Alamein had utilized deception to confuse the German units in the area. Many of the 23rd’s soldiers were graduates of various art schools and were asked to use their brains over their brawn. Comprised of artists and advertising professionals with a mix of sound technicians, many of these soldiers went on to become famous artists of our generation; including, Bill Blass (fashion designer) Arthur Singer (Illustrator) Art Kane (Photographer).

Did you know that...

  • there is a drivers view and even binoculars? Go into controls and click on "tank controls". The key to enter it can be set up there. The same way you can enable binoculars.
  • different steel types exist for armour? Every metal has got its own modifier e.g. cast steel is only 90% as strong as rolled homogenes steel (which is the standard armour plate). All part of the damage mechanics.
  • reducing the vehicles ammo load, affects the ammo storage by making them smaller and once empty disappear. Empty Ammo Racks cannot be exploded and are literally empty space.
  • The P-47 Thunderbolt can carry 1774kg of explosives. That is more than any attackers can except for the F-82E with 2x 2000lbs (1814kg).
  • the "Jug" (P-47D) outclasses the following bombers in payload: PBJ, B-25, TBF, Tu-2, SB 2M, Ar-2, Pe-2, G4M1, Ki-49, and the H6K4 (if torpedos are ignored).
  • rockets can be shot down mid-air by gun fire?
  • torpedoes can destroy bridges, if they hit the pillars.
