Mod «International Arms Market» for Hearts of Iron 4 (v1.11.9)

International Arms Market

This mod will allow you to purchase just about any equipment in the game using civs and political power, as well as sell equipment. This mod also provides some unique decisions and national spirits for minor powers. AI does use this mod as well.

How Does It Work?

  1. Spend a small amount of political power to purchase arms from another country.
  2. For a period of time, you will use 2-3 civilian factories to pay off the import and wait for your arms to be built. During this period of time, the seller receives the the civilian factories as well as some political power.
  3. Once the payment is done, you will receive your factories back, the weapons will be delivered, and gain improved relations and trade influence from the seller.
  4. AI countries may buy weapons from your factories. Note the International Arms Market has the equipment directly produced and delivered from the seller's factories, so no equipment is removed from your stockpile. You will, however, receive the benefits. AI usage can be toggled in game.

You can only purchase weapons from nations at peace, or nations fighting on the same side as you.

That's just the gist of it, there is a lot more nuance to be discovered.

The AI will purchase Infantry Equipment and Artillery as they need them.

List of weapons available for sale:

Light Tanks use a new event system for the sale. This is experimental and am open to feedback on weather this system should be implemented in other imports

Equipment Sellers
Infantry Equipment All majors + Czech, Poland, China
Support Equipment+Trucks+Trains England, Soviets, USA, Germany. No required seller for Trains
Surplus (obsolete rifles, artillery, tanks, planes, and ships)    No required seller
Artillery, AA, AT All majors + Czech and Swedish AA (bofors)
Light, Medium, Heavy, and Modern Tanks All majors + Czech, Sweden, Poland, Hungary
Fighers, Tact Bombers, and CAS All majors + Czech, Poland, Yugoslavia, Romania, Netherlands
Convoys, Destroyers, and Cruisers UK, Italy, USA, Japan, and Germany. No required seller for Convoys.

You can also sell the following: Tanks, Rifles, Artillery, AA, AT, as well as renting out military factories and dockyards.

After selling Tanks, Rifles, and Planes you can also get national spirits to boost your industry if you are a minor nation.

Other unique decisions for minors are:

  • Foreign Advisors - Gain boosts to planning, entrenchment, equipment capture ratio, etc.
  • License foreign designs & factories - Gain a huge boost to license design, making it more likely AI will accept your requests.
  • Tank Conversions - Gain equipment variants to convert obsolete tanks into. The AI will take this decision after 1938. In my playtests, AI does use them.
