army(Husky) \"Desert Rats\" with div.patches,3rd US infantry div. with light khaki and div.patch(Anzio),3rd Karpathian rifle div.(Poland)brit style uniform,div.patch and white eagle on beret.Axis:assault gun,1 German camo with \"Hermann Göring\" tank div.patch,2 Italian incl. desert camo for Husky,Hanomag camo with war flag on top,29th Italian SS grenadier,2nd\"Vendetta\"-battallion with special it. patches,German Panzergrenadier with Italian camo smock and tank desruction badge,German M13 camo and It. Wespe desert camo. The Polish skins of course do not correspond with ingame flags and language,but as an historical correct alternative to the French,this is I think a minor mistake.As well as the story behind the 2nd Polish korps(2nd Warsaw armoured div.,3rd Karpathian rifle div.,5th Kresowa inf.div.)is quite touching.Most of the men were Soviet pows taken when Hitler and Stalin divided Poland amongst themselves.After the German ambush on Russia,the Polish exile government in London convinced Stalin to release the prisoners for the fight against Nazi-Germany.General Wladislaw Anders,a former pow himself,became the commander of the 2nd corps.The prisoner release was stopped,when the truth came out about the Katyn massacre(15000 captured Polish officers had been executed by Soviet secret service!)and the exile government stopped all negotiations with Russia.In big parts it was the barvery of the Polish troops that decided the battle of Monte Cassino. These dds files have to be reconverted with MakerRfa,if don\'t have a texture folder or MC3.7(...). Thx for your interest in my work,any kind of input or suggestions is welcome,Jingo.

upon the monestary..they dug themselves out again.. nicknamed the \"green devils\" after monte cassino..possibly because of their greenish camo smocks worn over the uniforms .. i havent included the smock this time it can be added later there an enclosed actual monte cassino pic showing the uniforms..[/quote]
carro armato,Wespe,Hanomag and Kuebelwagen. The helmet of the paratroopers(sadly not the historicly correct one) still carries the black \"Bersaglieri\"feather,I simply didn\'t how to get rid of it!(If someone knows,tell me.)The rest of the uniform is quite close to the original.I added the division insignia on the backpack.The vehicle camos are similar to the Germans,using different shades of the classic green,brown and dark jellow.The Wespe has got a royal Italian flag on top. the Italian forces of ww2 suffered heaviest under the hybrid visions of Benito Mussolini,who tried to lead his country to old Roman glory.As a mass army the \"Regio Esercito\"(royal army)was overstrained with the\"Duce\"\'s expansionist dreams. In North-Africa the Italian troops got quickly surrounded by the British but were saved by the arrival of Fieldmarshal Rommel and the Africa Korps.But credit must be given to the extraordinate bravery of the paracadutisti,the soldiers of the 185th airborne division \"Folgore\"(Lightning).Fighting for every inch at El Alamein,even with bayonnet charges,they were driven back deep in the desert and eventually surrendered,after having no more water or ammunition. The remaining core regiment of the \"Folgore\"build up and trained the 183rd \"Nembo\"(Storm)parachute division.They fought in Yugoslavia against partisans,then Sicily,being driven back when armistice came.In large numbers the paratroopers didn\'t switch sides, but joined the German 1st Fallschirmjaeger Corps and kept fighting the allies at Anzio.The \"Nembo\" was the one of last Italo-German units that surrendered on May 1945. These files are dds and if you don\'t have a texture folder or MC3.7,use MakerRfa to reconvert them. Thx again to all my loyal fans and everybody who enjoy my work,make suggestions(I need your input,folks!)or fairly critisize me.So stay tuned,there\'s more to come!

\"based\" on a real Zero :p ) 442nd REGIMENTAL COMBAT TEAM The 442nd Regimental Combat Team was organized on march 23, 1943, in response to the War Department’s call for volunteers to form an all Japanese American army combat unit. Over 12,000 Japanese American answered the call. After about a year of training at Camp Shelby, the 442nd went overseas to Italy on May 1, 1944. The 442nd was assigned to Gen. Mark Clark’s U.S. Fifth Army and underwent its baptism of fire at Suvereto on June 26, 1944. For the next ten weeks, the unit engaged the German army in the mountainous Italian terrain, driving the enemy forces north to the Arno River. From October through November 1944, the 442nd served in northeastern France, where it fought with the 36th Infantry Division in the dark and bitter-cold forests of the Vosges Mountains. The French towns of Bruyeres, Belmont, and Biffontaine were liberated in the Vosges campaign, which was also highlighted by the rescue of the “Texas Lost Battalion.” The 442nd suffered more than 800 casualties in the process of rescuing approximately 200 Texans. The 442nd RCT returned to Italy in April 1945 to breach the German Gothic Line, which had blocked the Allied advance for six months. The 442nd broke through the German defenses in less than a day – and in the next three weeks forced the German army to retreat north to the Po Valley, where it finally surrendered on May 2, 1945. With its battle cry, “Go For Broke!” the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, along with the 100th Infantry Battalion (separate), earned the honor and distinction of being the most decorated unit of its size and length of service in battle in U.S. military history. The 442nd Regimental Combat Team was honored with a special Presidential Parade in Washington, D.C., where it received from President Harry S. Truman its 7th Presidential Unit Citation. President Truman remarked on the occasion, “You fought not only the enemy, but you fought prejudice and won.

which the battle was fought under can only be described as hellish with pouring rain, sleet and snow falling almost constantly for three months. This made the effective deployment of armour almost impossible and the vast majority of the fighting was conducted using infantry and artillery assaults. The two German armies defending Cassino and the surrounding areas from January-June 1944 consisted of the 10th and 14th Armies. The Fallschirmjäger element consisted of the 1st Parachute Division which was part of LXXXVI Panzer Korps (which was not involved in the first Cassino battle and would later become part of LI Mountain Korps) as well as the 4th Parachute Division as part of 1st Parachute Korps. This division was formed in December 1943 and contained elements of the Italian \"Foglore and \"Nembo\" Divisions.

However I tried to make the uniform as correct as possible by adding: - Bandoleer ( ammo holder arround the neck ) - Camo jumpsmock - Camo helm - Jump trousers - Jump boots[/quote]

1940. It had the durable Panzer III chassis with a completely new superstructure. To keep the vehicles profile as low as possible, the revolving turret was eliminated and the short barreled 75mm L/24 gun was mounted directly onto the hull. As it was mainly intended for close fire support for the Wehrmacht, it was used as self-propelled artillery against the opposing enemy\'s strategic points. However, when the German forces encountered the Russian KV and T-34 tanks on the Eastern front, the situation abruptly changed. To cope with this Russian tank threat, the Germans were forced to upgrade their existing weapons systems. The G-type StuG III built from late 1942 onwards, used a more powerful, long barrel 75mm L/48 gun. The early G-type had a square shaped gun mantlet. The superstructure was redesigned and an MG42 machine gun with shield, commander\'s vision cupola and smoke dischargers were added. The thin steel plates, known as Schurzen (skirts) were attached to the sides of the hull beginning in the spring of 1943. The type-42 assault gun mounted a 105mm howitzer on the StugG III chassis and was developed to fulfill the StuG III\'s original role of infantry support. Incorporating several minor changes, about 7,800 G-type StuG III\'s were produced. I created this skin to give the normal stugIII a more realistic look. I gave it a camo pattern with matching colors that the Germans used during WWII. I also added dirt to the wheels and sides of the Stug. This skin can be used for all the RTR maps.[/quote]

Looks because I didn\'t want it to look like it just came off the show room floor. *Plate *Unit marking (Air Force Units used a disk system) *Weathered Look I want to give thanks to Squadron/Signal Publications for their awsome series on Panzer Colors and WWII These books, are without a doubt, a must for any or all Bf1942 texture artists that want to get it right. Enjoy! Feel free to make any comments good or bad as it will only serve to help me become a better artist.Thanks![/quote]
