In the previous commandos games, the Commandos were made up of soldiers from all countries involved in the war- The GB being Irish, Sniper English, Spy french, etc, except in the American version where they're all americans.

But it seems now, they've stuck with the American side. Which sucks.

Is there gonna be a traditional set of commandos in the euro version, or not?

I do not think so. Even in the American version, only one was American.

Besides, in CSF, we are talking about 3 new commandos. A whole new team. There is no continuity in this series, unless friendly faces appear. From the game footage I have only seen Natasha, and she could be someone else too.

It may be that Francis O'Brien is an American, but his name appears Irish.
As for George Brown (spy) and William Hawkins, we have no idea yet.

But, as we are talking about commandos, there are no familiar names there.

And since the overview reads:
"The Commandos Strike Force is essentially a SSRF envisioned by Lord Mountbatten who believed in the use of specialist soldiers trained in sabotage."

this unit is different from the one we know.

Yeah Natasha will be there, but at the time of footage they used the same models for all the girls in that room.

As for the rest of the Characters our interview revealed that O'Brien (Green Beret) is American, Spy is English, as is the Sniper :)

So a majority is English which is quite logic considering that the Brits were the ones that started the Commando (like) unit unless I'm mistaken.

That's bizzare.
I've gotten too used to the commandos 2 team.
I can't imagine the spy being anything other then french. It seems strange too me.

But, if they are in fact a brand new team, then it works out ok.

Well, by the looks of them, only the GB has a general resemblance to the GB of the Commandos strategy series. The spy is blond and without spectacles and the sniper has hair on his... well... LOL... head, not shaved in other words or cut very very thinly...

In retrospect... this one could create some addons (both MOH and COD have), so it would not be strange to see other commandos guest appear...
