76mm Posted August 12, 2006 Share Posted August 12, 2006 Hi, Winter has fallen in my campaign game, and I need to add some ski troops for the Germans and Soviets. Historically, which types of units were generally ski-capable? Were ad-hoc ski units formed on an as-needed basis? I would guess that German mountain troops would be ski capable. What about battalion or regimental recon units? I would think that these commanders would be tempted to pull all the unit's skiers into one unit, but was this generally done? And what about the Soviets? Were ski troops common? It seems like every book you read about winter combat in Russia features legions of Russian ski troops, but this seems overblown... Any comments appreciated. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
