BF appears to have bug tested the  game into oblivion, but i'm still just going to start collecting things.

Gebirgjager infantry formation is missing in QBs (scouts an engineers are there for the gebirgs thou)
Stug (lastest) appears in the manual but not the game
StuH (lastest) also has same issue
Flammpanzer III has incorrect number of crew (at least from my readings)

I still have these issues after the latest patch  

The four action spot slide.  It works for HMGs.  Not sure about other crew served weapons.  For HMGs: If you have a deployed team, and give them a short movement order (4AS or less) without un-togglin

Fortress Italy: engine 4 v2.11 -on the stuart kangeroo and possibly recon the body sides of the driver and passenger stick through the armor a good amount edit their arms are out just above

A lot of the bug testing to death was to get the TO&E to work. It's *possible* you may need to play around a lot with dates on QB setups to get the vehicles you want, because a lot of work went into not only having all the correct formations and vehicles, but also the dates that they would be available.

Playing around with some QB setups I don't see the "latest" versions either. Yet.

Anyone else seeing the same?

Cherry picking specific vehicles in non-historic QB's is all part of the BF CM fun.  Do we know if there is a list of TO&E vehicles and dates available?  Trying to "find" the right date to get a German 'Elefant' in a QB is painful.  There's got to be a spreadsheet somewhere, yah?

Actually, RTFM! But the *right* manual.  GL manual states for Elefant "Available beginning... February 1944".  Hmmm, 🤔this requires more testing but I'm not sure this is true in QB?

EDIT - update:  Yes, for QB's the Elefant is "available beginning Feb 1944" but only through June 1944.

I posted this to the FI Beta forum. The OP is correct on all 3 catches and it's been reported (there is a application for entry of bug reports).

And yes,  the reason Brummbär Game was changed from its original form - Elephant Game - is exactly that - the availability of the Elephant in R2V and making R2V independent of GL (edited to match John's comment below)

I don't know if there is a spreadsheet as you suggest. There may be. A couple of people did most of the TO&E work.

Thanks for the efforts, @Ultradave.  They sent what, 11 Elephants to the whole theatre for one beachhead battle?  We are here for the CM accurate portrayal and realism - even if folks like me try to turn QB's into some kind of "world of tanks" "Kursk of the south" under the Italian sun!

Should the French Army in November 1943 have P-51Ds and P-47Ds? (this is in the editor) The US Army doesn't have those...looks like it continues into December 1943, January 1944, etc. until they leave in July 1944.

I'm seeing the same but only happens for me when a unit is selected

I don't have any of the mods you have but we do have the same graphics card - GTX970.

The G41's magazine doesn't appear. It seems to reflect the same problem the SVT has in Red Thunder, and it's even more jarring since the G41's magazine isn't even supposed to be detachable.

It never ceases to amaze me the breath of knowledge that our players have. We have guys testing that seem like savants or somefink with this kind of stuff. Truly impressive. Thanks, Frenchy56 (and everyone who has pointed these kinds of things out).

I've seen some bugs

1. the  Archer  drives backward

2. M4(105) or M4A3(105) Medium Tank is not on the list for single vehicle in  scenario editor or quick battle.  M24 Light Tank is in the scenario editor, but not in quick battle.

3. T32 Mountain Gun in not in specialist team list in scenario editor or quick battle.

"Bug and stuff thread."

Unfortunately I cannot call it a bug, but CMFI v2.10 does not work on Windows XP. To be precise; it seems the DRM part of it cannot launch anymore. The game itself is probably still OK with it, but it never gets there. This is the first time such a limitation arises, so far all CM games I tested worked on XP, up to the 2019 releases and updates. It had to come to this sooner or later.

Yeah I noticed the Archer has to be reversed into a firing position because it has a fixed turret which points to the rear - so probably not a bug. .  Not sure if Hull down command will work (probably not??).  Not ideal but I don't use the hull down command so not a biggie for me. On the plus side I guess you can do a fast retreat if need be!!  :)

This is not a bug. This is a design feature because the real life Archer actually has the gun facing the rear. This allows the Archer to be perfect for an ambush, fire at the enemy and then drive away at full speed without the need to turn around.
