Kit Requirements

We going to keep the requirements a bit more loose for this game. As this is a mid war scenario with multiple nationalities, it will give people the chance to use kit they haven't had the chance to use in a while. That being said it's not going to be completely open to anything under the son. I would also like to say that there should be a level of personal desire by individuals to want to get as close as they can to what the scenario is aiming for, otherwise why bother writing a game around a specific time/place in history at all.

This will be open to all combatants who fort during the Sicilian campaign. Though the'll be a main protagonist from each nationality for people to choose should they wish to badge up.

Allied

US: 3rd Infantry Division. M41 jacket, wool shirt and trousers, leggings.

British: 47th Infantry Division. Mixture of battledress and Khaki drill, Mk 2 helmet.

Axis

German: Hermann Goering Division. Mixture of field gray, DAK and Luftwaffe tropical uniform.

Italian: M37 jacket, pantelone in Grigo Verde or tropical. See here: http://www.hikishop.com/

Weapons

Period weapon or wood effect rifle

Remember this is 1943 so no MP44 and Grease guns please.

How strict are your kit requirements ? I can do generic Heer (feldgrau) or Waffen SS (pea dot) but don't have any HG or Luftwaffe gear

German

Russian

British

Japanese

Herman Goering Div is actually a really specific impression, and I'm certainly not intending to go out any buy white HG collar tabs etc. although I was slightly tempted by SS smock coupled with tropicals .

We had a chat about this in the Alte Hasen group and Wladeck indicated that generic is fine.

I hope the HG thing isn't putting people off?!

The original post states that ANY unit involved in the campaign is acceptable, and that feldgrau Heer is absolutely fine.

Why should it? As the top post says, it's an option if players wish to do so.
