Been going thru all my photos of tunisia in ww2. I see exactly 0 m1 carbines in use. It looks highly unlikly that many if any even made it with units that landed as part of Operation torch. Seems unlikly that any where involved in fighting around Longstop or even in medjez valley in 42/43. This is quite possible as production of the thing got under way in mid 42. The time it would take to produce enough of them and get them to combat units and train with it (as well as the supply issue of the .30 carbine round) would take time. But all I see in photos are m1903a1, m1903a3, m1903a4, m1 garands. m1928a1 SMG, m1a1 smg, m1918 and m1918a2 BAR's. Well m1911 and m1911a1's too. :D M1 carbine missed north africa? Or in such small numbers at the end? ARGH! Anyone have any data on this?
FYI and going to add a little more detail into the reciever area on m1 garand.
OH and I got a message from Graviteams super duper Andrey who recommends another 150-200 triangles for m1918a2 BAR.
If your a history buff like me and have data about US Army in Tunisia in NOV 42-Jan 43 please feel free to post any relavant info on units, weapons, gear, whatever as I flesh stuff out. I am after a historically correct, early ww2 deal here. Not that other BS that gives every wonder weapon to you. Also after data of 1st combat usage of M1 or ma1 bazooka. Highly likly some of these made it out of Algeria with combat units heading east. I am sure not all where blowing up goats with Patton back in the rear.
