Self-Extracting Sound Mod
Greg “RedMike” Colman
The infamous sound mod pre-packaged into a convenient self-installer. No more worries for those who experience difficulty installing mods. Download
Unit Bases Mod
BB has created a set of unit bases in 2D100 and 2D50.bmp modes that make the unit bases appear more visible by lightening their shades. Good for those with a touch of farbenblinden such as myself. Download
This is a historical and detailed Divisional .oob file of the US 1st Infantry Division (“Big Red One”) and attachments as well as the Panzer Lehr Division for scenario design reference. It also includes a .scn file in which you can “review” the Divisions represented. Download
American Rally Voices (Eagles Strike_All Games with Yanks)
This works with all Squad Battles games that have American forces. Adds 8 new rally commands for US troops. To install copy files to Media/American, Media/American_AB and Media/American Marines in all Squad Battles games that you wish to add these voices. They do not replace the old .wav files, they just add to them. Download
3D Vehicles 100 Graphics Mod
Here’s another new mod by Da\/illan that replaces the stock 3DVehicles100.bmp file in the Eagles Strike Map folder. Back up the original first just in case you should ever want to restore it and then extract Da\/illan’s file into the Map folder. Here’s what Da\/illan has to say about it. “The ES_3DVehicles100.bmp is a 3D mod for Eagles Strike (BETA version) that changes most, but not all, of the American and Axis vehicles. The frequently used ones are there though. It is currently only viewable in 3D normal mode.If there is a good response, then I will keep adding to it, make it usable in 3D zoom out, and add a newer terrain mod also.” Download

Ozgur Budak & Frank Harmon
THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL HPS SUPPORTED ADD ON. This is just something to hold Squad Battles fans over until a legitimate WF-Allied Forces game becomes a reality. The 2D only add-on is a fully functioning addition that (though limited) still opens numerous possibilities for gaming with ES and is quality workmanship. This add on does not effect any existing data (other than graphic), and only adds to the weapons/equipment that all ready exists. No 3D graphics exist. This is the final version of this add on. Nothing else will be added as of 28 April 2003. All that may happen is a few tweaks to existing add on material, but that will be the extent.
Canadians– Complete 2D Package w/10 soldier images and rally voices.
English Army – Complete 2D Package w/10 soldier images and rally voices.

Norwegians – Krag-Jorgensen, Madsen LMG, Gewehr 33/40
Matilda Infantry Tank
Alternate Unit and Vehicle Art, Art for Gebirgjagers and UK Colonial Troops, K-9 dogs, new turn boxes, .303 British wav files for Lee-Enfield, new Waffen SS uniforms (winter camo, summer camo, slightly wounded and smoking troops, etc), new images for MAS 36, Bren LMG and Lee Enfield (imported from SB:KW), .OOB files for the very strangely organized Italian Infantry Battalion, French Infantry Battalion of 1940, and British and Canadian 1944 OOB’s done by Wild Bill Wilder.
No aircraft or heavy guns have been added. A few early war weapons, French tanks and a few early German Tanks already exist in the stock OOB for early war actions. ( I will be writing an article soon stating which weapons in the .oob editor are German weapons that have been captured). If other armor is desired in a scenario, use lend lease Yankee tanks. There are only two scenarios as of this moment.
This add on also does not effect playing scenarios with the units originally included with ES and it “coexists” and it will cause no issues if you have the mod installed and your opponent does not. The only issue you will confront is if you attempt to play someone a scenario containing these custom weapons or units and they do not have the add on installed. Otherwise the game stands unaltered.
Note-Please read the installation instructions. Although a fairly easy task it has no margin for error. Failure to install this add-on correctly will destroy your computer…lol only kidding. However, it will give you a very funky looking game.
