The Sturm division seems tougher than other divisions for some reason. Is it treated like a mountain division?
That's as it should be! See 'my' adopted Divisional badges to the left - the second is the badge for the newly designated Sturm Division, after the artificial armoured hand of the German Imperial knight Götz von Berlichingen. Having been asked for his surrender, he is famously quoted by Goethe for the phrase 'kiss my arse!' This has slightly more ooomph to it, IMHO, than 'Nuts!'
The new title was not designated until early '43, and eventually included significant upgrades to its TOE in terms of Assault guns, PAKs, Pioneers, Marders, 120mm Mortars and Nebelwerfers. Next best thing after Gross D!
