A group of units in a battle.

The Units in Conflict of Nations: Modern War are the foundational building blocks of your military campaign. You will begin each game with a contingent of early modern units placed strategically on your selected Homeland nation; the selection of which is entirely dependent upon your nation’s military doctrine, resources, and terrain.

Each unit is individually named and consists of a division of troops. Units are located on the map with identifying icons, and individual units can, and should, be stacked along with other units in order to amplify their military strength.

Beginning your game with Tier 1 Technology from the early-modern period of the 1980’s and early 90’s, subsequent research will allow you to build and mobilize units from the mid-modern period of the 2000’s (Tier 2), and lastly, with ultra-modern units (Tier 3).
