  1. Here is a handy key online (if that is not already what you are using): http://niehorster.org/011_germany/symbols/_symbols_43.html Happy to help if you have questions.
  2. Here is the actual organization (Kriegsgliederung) for 5. SS Pz. Div. "Wiking" on August 6, 1944: As well as September 3, 1944: And finally October 1, 1944:
  3. Because there is some small variation from the platoon in the standard Grenadier battalion, it requires a distinguishing label in the TO&E. In this case all the Sturm company subordinate platoons are noted as being part of this Sturm company org, and in the case of the 3rd platoon, it carries the “heavier” load of MGs and MG ammo. In reality it was “1. And 2. Sturm Zug” and “3. Zug” which you can rename them to if you wish, but the game requires something more specific to keep sub-units separate in the TO&E.
  4. This is correct, although the labeling used in the editor is a bit misleading. Two platoons in each Volksgrenadier company were equipped as Sturm platoons while the third was equipped as a normal rifle platoon. https://www.wwiidaybyday.com/kstn/kstn131v1nov44.htm
  5. Well, the key difference is that the only factor making the Defender transit provocative is Russia’s illegal claim to the waters, which is not recognized under international law, therefore it cannot be a violation of innocent passage rules. It is provocative only to Russia and only because of their illegal claim. https://www.lawfareblog.com/déjà-vu-russias-illegal-restrictions-innocent-passage-black-sea
  6. So Russian warships never transit the English Channel via innocent passage?
  7. Night vision (image intensification) does appear to vary in performance based on global illumination levels, i.e set the date for a starlight-only night and you should see different performance compared to a half-moonlight night. I don’t think there is any variation in thermal performance.
  8. Britain would observe them: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/russian-submarines-spotted-in-the-irish-sea-in-the-latest-provocation-by-vladimir-putins-navy/MSZQQWG4LNF523K3WYSTNFVUBQ/

  10. Not really, and it is pretty clear that the primary role of the senior rifleman was to operate the LMG.
  11. George is correct. The smaller squad is much closer to historical reality for 1944-45, but updating scenario TO&E requires deletion and repurchase of the unit to see the changes.
  12. Yes, sounds like a bug.
  13. The portraits are associated with the force “branch,” in this case Tank.
