or place the LIB_US_RANGERS.pbo  and  LIB_US_RANGERS_VEHICLES.pbo inside the Addon folder inside the @if_other_addons folder (this last is the reccomended one)

Features:

Dedicated ingame icons (shown in pictures above)
Groups selection in editor
US infantery units in 2nd rangers skins
Info: this addon contains better detailed textures than the ones in the texture pack for IF standalone Game

Many thanks to all of the members of the Iron Front Revival, i hope you enjoy guys

EDIT:  (ADDED)

Today i was at home doing nothing, outside the door there were an ugly grey rainy weather, so i started to play IF on A2 editing a mission with my rangers skins, so i told to myself hey these heroes don't have vehicles, they can't fight a war on the entire omaha map walking and running all the time, so i choose to gift 'em drivers and vehicles
and here is the addon, my rangers said thank you very much all the morning for this gift, so if you wish to do the same
here's the addon units + vehicles, your rangers will be very gratefull

Important Info:

You need to overwrite the previous downloaded LIB_US_RANGERS.pbo with this last one (linked above), if you wish to add LIB_US_RANGERS_VEHICLES.pbo

So the empty US vehicles doubling up in the editor is unavoidable?

Yes could be, but if you use empty vehicles from the addon and you share the mission with someone that doesn't have the addon, there will be an error message popping up and the mission will result unplayable at all, to avoid this,the elements from the addon are separated from those in the vanilla, and correctly tagged 2nd rangers in the editor, to avoid empty vehicle mixing with the vanilla ones, the addon's units and vehicle have different classnames so errors, incompatibilities are unavoidable to someone using vanilla version of the game.
it's just to make things clear and well ordered

Heya ~ I'm using the 2nd Rangers addon for a mission. It's excellent thank you Simon [thumb] I added the .pbo to the LIB_DLC addons as you suggested and it's working great. I'm looking forward to using some more of your US Infantry skins for more D-Day missions (reminds me I need to brush-up on my units/beaches and background info from the Day [70th Anniversary coming up in June btw]).
So anyway - I wanted to ask; is there a Radio Man available? Did you have any plans, or did I miss that there was one available already? I wouldn't want to attach a German Radio to a US Unit, because I would want to get that concept into the storyline somehow, and that might get complicated, it would involve me reading through about US & German frequency's used on the day, whether either side could make use of the others radios and so on. Besides, what chance would a small US Unit, maybe struggling to find it's units HQ, have, without a radio?   ...US Radio for DLC units?
