New Development Build – Air and Artillery Support

I’ve just uploaded a new development build. It’s dated June 9th since I finished it a little earlier than anticipated! The biggest change is the addition of air and artillery support options. For now, Germany has air support only and Poland has artillery support only, but eventually each will have at least some of each in their campaigns. The systems are also both very rudimentary for now, with further complexity planned for the future.

I have tested both but there’s always the possibility that either will interact with something else in an unexpected way, so if you do encounter any bugs or crashes please do report them at armouredcommander [at] gmail [dot] com. Changelog follows:
