More CMFI graphics issues

While testing the portrait mod I have run into a few issues when it comes to the game graphics. I have noticed that (for me) it's not possible to get the Brit or US airborne to wear their greatcoats and the CW turtle helmets never show up on any units. I have tried all dates/weather settings and made sure I chose greatcoats to no avail. Anyone else notice this? Someone want to double check?

If they are absent by design than why the choice in the editor? But it doesn't make sense, because the game has them available through all the winter months. So, why no greatcoats?

And what about the turtle helmets? Are they in place for dates yet to be implemented or were they forgotten?

Maybe for the next module? The 504th PCT was fighting in Italy in winter weather.

"Leg Infantry"

The 504th had been fighting as "leg infantry" during the advance towards Rome until pulled from combat on 4 January 1944 to prepare for the Anzio operation. The 504th PCT was assigned to seize the town of Borgo Piave on 24 January. Although successful they were soon driven out by German tanks and artillery. They then held a defensive position along the Mussolini Canal until relieved on 28 January. After withdrawal the third Battalion, 504th PIR was assigned to the 1st Armour Division, while the remainder of the PCT was assigned to the 3rd Infantry Division. The 3/504th soon saw intensive combat fighting off a German counterattack. As a result of this action they became the first US parachute unit to receive a Presidential Unit Citation.

Rejoined by the decimated 3rd Battalion the 504th PCT was soon back in their defensive positions on the right flank where they carried out aggressive small unit infiltration patrols across German lines. This demoralized the Germans as was noted by a German officer who referred to them as "Devils in Baggy Pants", a name proudly carried by the 504th until this day.

In late March the 504th was ordered withdrawn to England to join the 82nd Airborne.

Everyone forgets about the 509th Para Battalion (actually a regiment on the TO&E, but it never got its 2nd Battalion)..the first US Paras to go into action in the war, fought N. Africa--Italy--France. Only 50 left standing after the Bulge.

funny you should mention that, I found this while thinking about a fictional scenario with the 509th. LOL The whole point of the 509th for me was, they were actually staged in Venafro for a bit.

History of the 509th up to December 1943:

Constituted 14 March 1941 in the Army of the United States as the 504th Parachute Infantry Battalion, consisting of HHC and Companies A, B & C.

Activated 5 October 1941 at Fort Benning, Georgia

Reorganized and redesignated 24 February 1942 as the 2d Battalion, 503d Parachute Infantry Regiment, consisting of HHC and Companies D, E, and F. Battalion Deployed detached from the Regiment to England.

2/503 PIR arrived in England, and reorganized and redesignated 2 November 1942 as the 2d Battalion, 509th Parachute Infantry Regiment, consisting of HHC and Companies D, E, and F. Remainder of 503rd Parachute Infantry Regiment proceeded to Pacific Theater and separate Lineage with new 2nd Battalion.

2/509 PIR Assaulted Oran and Youks-les-Bains Airfield in North Africa as part of Operation TORCH.

TORCH assignment terminated, and unit attached to the 82nd Airborne Division on 15 November 1942.

2/509 PIR Assaulted Sicily as part of Operation HUSKY on 9 July 1943.

2/509 PIR Assaulted Salerno. Italy on 9 September 1943 as part of Operation Avalanche.

2/509 PIR Parachuted onto Avellino on 14 September 1943. The unit was immediately engaged upon landing by German Forces, and was badly decimated. Unit was subsequently withdrawn from Combat, and temporarily assigned as Security for Headquarters, 5th U.S. Army
