Default Factions in the ODE

I have finally decided to use plastic bins to organize all the piece that come with the ODE. It looks like it came with four different factions. One being the NAC and one being the Pan Europeans. Does anyone know what the other two are called? One faction looks like it has greenish looking vehicles with a white background and the other looks like black vehicles with a light green back ground with names on them.

The "black on light green" that use the NAC style artwork are the Black Rose Mercenaries. What's neat about these is they are fan-sponsored sheets where a bunch of us chipped in to help fund it and were able to pick the names you see on the units.

The "greenish on white" are the "Third Force" units. They are European (but not PE) units. This is another set of sheets that were sponsored by Robert Gurskey. A lot of people say they are Belgian because of the coloring (look at the cruise missile especially); but IIRC, Robert says they are not specifically Belgian.

I never said such a thing as the GEVs/LGEVs and cruise missiles are specifically Belgian. The Howitzers and Mobile Howitzers are German. The Heavy Tanks and Light tanks are from elsewhere in Europe, but I never decided where.

And that's what I love about this community - here we have as official an answer as we can get, straight from the proverbial horse's mouth! :)

Hear, hear!

Thanks for weighing in, rjg173!

(There does seem to be a resurgence of interest in the various ODE factions recently. Perhaps Battlefields has something to do with that. In any case, anything that keeps Ogre front and center is "a good thing" in my book!)

I knew invoking your name would bring you out of the woodwork :-)

Yeah, that's been very interesting to see.
