    That picture is a well known one from Stalingrad. Interestingly, it is also not an SVT40 but an AVS-36, which was still in use this early in the war.

    No, Sicily is not right at all, although some where tested near Salerno, apparently. I assume the M9 Bazooka is more accurate, since it has a scope.

    Yes, that being said, I personally feel there is a certain disconnect between the level of detail when it comes to vehicles variants (Panzer IV Ausf. H (early)) and Infantry equipment. I wish there was some bigger variety there just for historical flavor, even if maybe the actual gameplay effect would be small. I'd have to imagine that modifying a TOE or making a new type of rifle is ultimately less work than making some obscure tank. I made a thread about this before, but some examples of infantry weapons that in my eyes should be added to the WW2 series: For German infantry set to "ill-equipped": MG26(t) (to replace random amounts of MG34/42) MP Beretta (especially for the Bulge game) MP 28 Luftwaffe Field Division stuff: MG15 / MG81 And the G41(w) as replacement for the G43 on 1943 and early 1944 maps In terms of TOE for the Eastern Front game: A variant of the Grenadier Kompanie with 1 Sturmzug for those Divisions that had the MP43 introduced. Call it Grenadier-Kompanie (Stg) or whatever, just copy the already existing one and change it a bit. If the Italy Game includes old style (1941) Infanterie ToE, port it over to the Normandy game as well. For Russians: Fewer SVT40s for Russian infantry in 1944 / 45. (In fact, I know of no photo of a Tokarev rifle on the front post 1943, although I am willing to be proven wrong on this) A variant of the Rifle Company with an smg platoon. PRTS semi automatic for units set to "Better than average" equipment. For Americans: M9A1 Bazooka and M1919A6 set to proper start date (post Normandy) Springfield grenade launcher in Normandy and Bulge if equipment set to bad. Again, can be ported over from Italy.

    The point of my post was to refute OPs argument that Infantry units had no G41s and G43s, only Panzergrenadiers did. According to these numbers, Infanterie Divisions indeed had them, as portrayed ingame.

    Since I apparently got nothing better to do I looked at some reports to get more data regarding the idea that "Infantry Divisions had no G41s or G43s". Let's see: 197.

    These are monthly reports and the one from June might have been destroyed. Also, these don't change that much over a month except for enemy action.

    Dunno where this idea comes from that Infantry Divisions had no G41/G43. For instance, the 352nd Infanterie-Division of Omaha Beach fame reported 395 G41s in February 1944. These do not show up in the 43 kstn, but IIRC there was an amendment saying that 2 were to be issued to each squad if available.

    A long delayed update

    Too bad, really not interested in modern warfare. That being said, from what limited experience I have of game development, I get how this kind of mission creep can happen.

    Road to Montebourg

    He also made the Road to Nijmegen and Scottish Corridor campaigns for the same game. I'm playing the Nijmegen one on my channel right now, btw.
  11. On a related note, I am playing the Nijmegen campaign by papertiger right now (will be on Youtube as well). Has he ever done another CM campaign? Is he still active in some way?
  12. Probably made no master map because there was no fighting IN Bastogne, just around it.
  13. Means the Sturmpanzer, probably (Brummbär).
  14. That artwork is from the flames of war tabletop game (ironically made by the "Battlefront" Company)...
