Version 2.1 for DoW 1.3

French version available : une version en français est disponible ici : http://spacedragons.free.fr/

Description : This mod allows Space Marines players to add several several vehicles to their Dawn of War game.

The Rhino now has the possibility to be upgraded with a Storm Bolter for combat against infantry,
and reinforced against damage (giving it a damage resistance a little above the landspeeder).
It can now charge through the enemy lines, brushing aside infantry. This ability is much like the Squiggoth's Rampage ability. 
It is more efficient when the Rhino has been reinforced through the "reinforce rhinos" research.

The Razorback is a light support tank whose main role is to transport troops and deliver them in the middle of the fight.
It can transport single man units (characters), scouts or Space Marines squads (available at the marines barracks)
It has twin heavy bolters, efficient against infantry, that can be upgraded to lascannons or a Multi Melta(at tech level 3)
It is not as resilient as the Predator and cannot sustain prolonged heavy fighting, but is cheap and quick to produce.

The Vindicator is a heavy assault cannon (available at tech level 3).
It has a big gun, very effective against buildings and vehicles.
It is not very resistant to damage, though.

The Damocles command tank holds ultra powerful sensors that give precious data on the battlefield conditions.
It detects enemy units at a much greater range tban any other Space Marine unit, even those enemy who try to infiltrate the Marines' positions.
It maintains a link with nearby tanks, giving them coordinate data allowing for an increase in precision and damage. It also sends static that blurs the enemy's machines' spirits and lower their damage to Marines tanks around the Damocles.
Last, but not least, at tier 3, the Damocles can start a cartography protocol, its sensors revealing a huge portion of the battlefield for a limited time. This allows to see where the enemy units are, but also to deepstrike units very far into the enemy lines.
Be warned, though : this tank is extremey fragile !

Deathwind support Drop Pod.
It is much like a classical turret, but it can deep strike via Drop Pods on any visible spot on the map. They are available at the Orbital Relay. They have the same cost as classical turrets, but occupy 2 slots in support capacity.
