Mod «Improved vanilla technology icons» for Hearts of Iron 4 (v1.12.1 - 1.12.7)

Improved vanilla technology icons

Mod replace tech icons in armor, air and infantry tab for more "realistic" planes, tanks, infantry weapons and equipment etc.
Some icons replaced with fictional vehicles of my own design, for example: that bad boy or tanks and planes that certain country can realisticly buy or produce under licence from their historical allies or neutral countries.

For example: Yugoslavia in real world bought british and french tanks before the war, so their later tanks will have british and french origin.
I prefer technologies that countries actually used in ww2 rather than just make a single prototype.
I am not using something like Finnish VL Pyörremyrsky, insted it will be bf109G6 that realy used in numbers, but with Finnish insignia.

Also because i wery pasionate about painting fictional tanks, i can replace some of the tech with fictional ones, even if the real ones exists. But if i do so i try to make them looks real and related to certain country that use them.
Good example of it is Italian APC's.

Countries with unique focus trees have already received 80 or 99% of their icons, so mod will be updated as often as i can. For now mod allready have over 2000 unique icons and more to come.

Minors with no unique focus trees use generic tech trees, but some have unique icons like SWE, PER, FIN and others.
At least minors will have uniqe infantry weapons: Chinese warlords, scandinavian countries, Austria, Switzerland, baltic countries, Iran.

When i made an update - i replace old screenshots with the new ones (usually, sometimes i am just lazy ), but not every country is present on the screenshots because its to many of them.

  • GER 175
