Next up: Germany, at first the normal leg infantry. These were the majority of German forces, but in FH2 most maps show mechanised forces, because players like tanks and apcs.

Seeing a map with germans having StGs only would be cool  ;)

I agree with Jan here.
That other thread failed miserably and if you try to spam or flame here, I will break your arms.
FH2 won't be the last FH. ;)

Note that only two thirds of the infantry platoons in a division were equipped as Sturm Platoons.

In my pictures, the guy below the platoon leader in the Platoon HQ is the sergeant.

I think the British squad leaders ingame are sergeants.

And let's go on with German motorized infantry, which in 1944 also includes Fallschirmjägers.

And finally the (massively overrepresented) German armored infantry.

So how were Panzerfausts doled out? In photos of late-war Germans or Volksturm, it almost looks like everybody is lugging one. Were they issued to the HQ and given out as needed?

There were so much of them, I think they were given to every 3rd Volksturm soldier.

They do not show up in these documents because they count as ammunition, not a weapon. So basically, they gave out as many as they had and as many as could be carried.
