In the steppes of Crimea
Looks like my english is too bad for understanding your thoughts.:confused:
I was born in Lithuania, and lived here all my life, and yet i'm a russian. Don't you have national minorities in your countries?
BTW, FinFury, wanted to say "respect" to you. You're a good soldier. :) Sorry for the off-top.

If you are serious about adding a new country to Red Orchestra, then it has to be Romania due to its overall impact and contribution of manpower.
Here's a breakdown of Romania's contribution in terms of manpower during various years of the war:

The number of men able to serve in 1941 was 2.2 million.
In the first part of the 1941 campaign (Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina) the 473,103 men were engaged in battle (this figure is for front line troops): 14 divisions and 9 brigades, the ARR and the MRR. Later that year another two divisions and 3 brigades were committed on the front, so you can add an extra 58,000 men. I do not know the number of troops concentrated inside the country (partea sedentara).

In 1942, Romania committed a total of 26 divisions on the Eastern Front (the mountain and cavalry brigades had been upgraded to divisions, as they were about the same size as an Italian division). That would make about 350,000-400,000 as the infantry divisions had been reorganized and not all were at full strength.

In 1943, following the disaster at Stalingrad, only 9 divisions served on the front (in the Kuban and Crimea). With the Navy and airforce, that would make 100,000-150,000 probably.

On 15 August 1944, the Romanian army had 1,150,036 men mobilized, of which 431,735 on the front (this figure does not include the airmen and navy). Before that date the Romanian army suffered at least 20,000 casualties in 1944 (which raises the total number of mobilized men).

Against the Axis, from 24 August onwards, Romania committed 538,536 men on the front.

The Romanian army suffered 794,562 casualties during WWII: 92,620 dead, 333,966 wounded and 357,976 MIA (of these about 130,000 were taken POWs by the Red Army, after Romania had quit the Axis and Romanian forces were engaged in battle in Transylvania).

I'd like to see any of the three implemented -- Romania, Finland, or Hungary.

Pacific

Pacific

Tarawa, Iwo Jima, Saipan, Okinawa, Phillipines, City fighting in Manila, Singapore, Burma. Alot of potential for a realistic FPS game like RO.

I would also like the Ardennes Campaign.

But right now, there is so much potential in the Eastern Front with RO, am very content enjoying the game and looking forward to more upgrades and new maps.

Finland!

Just finished the book "Black Edelweiss" (not sure about english title). It's about a young german man who becomes a SS soldier in 1942 and is sent to the east front in Finland.

And if we add Finland we should have Swedish volunteers! Nah, just kidding.

Do whatever, my votes are just 100% anti america :)
Uh, because there were so many Americans fighting on the Eastern front, right? :confused:

Anyways, if they're going to implement the Italian Expeditionary Corps into some maps, I'd also like to see some maps featuring the Blue Division. :D

(sort of being serious for the Italian one).

On a less serious note:

How can you recognize an Italian tank?

I think there should just be a conjoined effort of people to createa series of maps that deal with the less-popular nations of the ost front, like instead of just keeping it to one specific nations, make it a pact, with like 2 maps dealing with germany and polish resistance in the early years of war, 2 maps with the finns against the soviets, and so on... I would be much more excited for an upcoming download that had a bunch of maps involving all those less popular nations that were involved rather than someone releasing something for hungary, then another for romania, and so on...
