How to Spawn Equipment in Hearts of Iron IV

Who has time to wait for equipment? Clearly not you if you're on this page!

Spawning equipment in Hearts of Iron IV is actually quite straight-forward. The command you must use is the add equipment command, which can be abbreviated at 'ae'.

Before diving into using the add_equipment command, it's important to note that you need to research equipment before you can use it. You can do this in two ways:

  • Using the research all command - executing this command will instantly research all equipment for your current country.
  • Using the research_on_icon_click command - after executing this command, equipment will be resarched instantly when you click its icon in the technology tree.

The syntax for the 'ae' command is as follows:

add_equipment [amount] [equipment name]

Here's what the two arguments mean:

Amount The amount of equipment you wish to add.
Equipment Name The name of the equipment you wish to add.

All you need to do is replace the arguments with the equipment and amount you'd like to add. So, for example:

ae 1000 motorized_rocket_equipment_1

The above command would add 1000 Motorized Rocket Artillery to your stockpile. You could make that just 200 Motorized Rocket Artillery with the below command

ae 200 motorized_rocket_equipment_1

And to make the above command 200 Towed Artillery (artillery_equipment_1), all you'd have to do is change 'motorized_rocket_equipment_1' to 'artillery_equipment_1':

ae 200 artillery_equipment_1
