I'm experimenting with parachute units for a Billy Mitchell big air tank operation in late 1918-1919 and also for the Russian Civil War 1918-1920. The Soviets did use parachute units in the 20's to put down resistance in remote Central Asian Republic tribal regions. I got the units to work and was able to put them into the game, but I cannot get the sprite/avatar for the parachute units to appear. The NATO symbol show ups fine from it's BMP, but the Sprite is missing from the: unit_sprites_3d.bmp. I found that different campaigns pull their sprites from other campaigns' and share them. The 1939 Storm Over Europe campaign is the only one with parachute sprites in column eleven, the same column as the NATO symbol appears on its BMP. I tried copying that sprite into the unit BMP for the Tannenberg campaign, which looks to be the only full Russian unit BMP, but the sprites did not show? The NATO parachute symbol does show OK, though. Do I have the correct master Russian unit BMP with the Tannenberg one? How can I get a sprite to show for the Russian paratroopers? Model 1908/1915 Spandau: It's old and clunky, but it works (sometimes).
