  1. Volkssturm weapons were really varied, but documents are hard to come by. The Volkssturm around Bautzen for example used French Berthier rifles, Italian impact grenades, Panzerfausts and 4 MG34s in each company. Some of the weirder stuff I have come across were rare Russian rifle grenade launchers and SVT40s, in use by a tank hunting unit.
  2. Sounds to me like a typical example of mission creep. I see it in modding all the time: Oh, let's put this in while we are at it. We have some time left, why not add X, it will be easy! And suddenly everything balloons in complexity.
  3. Wouldn't go that far. One thing I had to learn in GT due to the inability to micromanage the inf is that you need to heavily support them with mortars, MGs or AT guns. Without that they are indeed useless.
  4. Well if he knows so much, how come he lost? Anyway, regarding infantry: I am kind of confused why Graviteam Tactics is cited as an example of very strong infantry, the developers even pride themselves in infantry being somewhat useless against tanks. That is not a joke, there is a thread on their steam forum that only exists to post reports of tanks being basically impervious to infantry. I would even turn it around: In Combat Mission infantry is a bigger factor, in Graviteam the anti tank gun. edit: Although I should say that this is partly because Graviteam plays before the
  5. I wont get Cold War, World War 2 is the only thing that interests me.
  6. RTFM? We used to joke that it stands for "rolling on the floor masturbating".
  7. Seems unlikely, developer studios usually don't release on a weekend on account of people not working.
  8. Yeah, back to topic. I have to say, I am at least kind of hyped for the expansion now, haven't played much CM for a bit and looking forward to trying out the new scenarios and campaigns.
  9. I don't care about "civil manners". In fact, with Nazis I prefer them to be quite impolite, then their tone matches their ideology.
  10. Not saying that you are a Nazi for playing the Germans, I am doing that myself. But it is naive to think that there is not a big overlap between historical wargaming communities and nazis. Even in this forum, which is generally more well informed than others, I see the old Cold War myths of "Soviets just overwhelmed the Germans with numbers" and "German tanks were superior" all too often. And in my experience it is not far from that to the old chestnuts of "Nazis and Russians were basically the same" or "They just wanted to protect Europe from communism!" Now maybe I am a bit jaded from h
  11. Why not? There are a lot of right-wing assholes in this kind of hobby, not to mention just uninformed people with a very rosy view of German military capabilities.
  12. I think I may have asked this before, but: Will the G41 from FI be added as well? It is not in the TOE list, but then again, it isn't even in the R2V manual.
  13. And the OSNAZ forces using them actually got issued with Bazookas and PIATs.
  14. Maybe I can port my Petsamo Kirkenes Campaign over from WinSPWW2 then...
