I am trying to follow this discussion and I do not understand why the game should start using 1943 German squad (#82) upgrade from January . These squads were not in use
from 1/43 on anyway, they could start earliest around 8/43.
The 9 men squad organization became official with Infanterie Division N.A. KstN starting 10/43. In addition the device #181 (panzerfaust) was not used that early either.
The first order of Faustpatrone (Panzerfaust 30 klein) was delivered (all 500 pieces) by the manufacturer, HASAG Hugo Schneider AG, Werk Schlieben, in August 1943 for troops.
Note: I admit that this comment is partially motivated by my post (German TOE (OB) ERRATA) in general discussion about the need to fix the TOE mistakes!
Nobody respects a country with a poor army, but everybody respects a country with a good army. I raise my toast to the Finnish Army.
