The Wikia template icon

This page tells you how to use each of the templates used on this wiki under normal circumstances (for example, you could use most templates in any way on your own user page).











Firstly, you add the template onto the screen (the position doesn't matter). Afterwards, enter the name of the unit, weapon or page subject in the Template Title. Put an image as File:Unit or Weapon.jpg or .png and then enter the information. You can get either the standard infobox or the unit infobox. You enter the information as follows:



This may be aircraft, armoured vehicle, warship, or infantry.
