ToW2 Africa BALANCE MOD ver.1.5.1

BALANCE MOD ver.1.5.1 (for Centauro ver.1.3.6 only)

Some cool new units etc.

I got it working by -
Copying the 3 folders mentioned out to a backup location (leaving the 'originals' in place), & extracting the mod archive into the \Steam\steamapps\common\theatre of war 2 africa 1943 folder.
The \missions folder has the .xml's updated with those from the archive. \Ai & \data get new files. Other files & folders are added.

For those wanting to try -
Package 20.9mb

readme :-

Backup your MISSIONS, AI and DATA folders.
Point your Africa1943 folder during the installation.
You should got 3DOBJ, Samples, Presets folders;
UNITS, GUNS, ITEMS subfolders in your DATA folder;
and 15 new subfolders in your MISSIONS\MP_LIST folder.

You may need to replace the file MISSIONS\MP_LIST\TEXT.UTF8

Delete MISSIONS and DATA folders, then restore ones from
your backup.

The command file KILL-BIN.BAT included to MISSIONS folder
for fast erasing trash-cash files.
