The squad leader MP44 just looks like one. In reality it's a very slightly better gren K98.
If you get into an argument with me, you're wrong.

what the crap? So the MP44 in Grens, Volks, and Storms are there for looks? SVT 40 is there for looks on the Guard? What about the M1 Carbine riflemen have?

Landser MP40 should better not be a better Mauser.

The Landser MP40 / MP44 upgrade is the most retarded thing I've ever seen.  Whoever thought of that idea should be shot for utter stupidity.  I don't know if anyone in their right mind that would pay 50 munitions for a single MP40 / MP44, even if its the "real one".

Maybe it will be changed to resemble Volks upgrade ???. Maybe its a godly MP40 ;D. Does that upgrade do anything else besides add 1 MP40/44 ???

Guards appear to be a breakthrough infantry. Naval Infantry have changed in 1.5. They're heavy weapon specialists, but what are they for now? Are they still good infantry without upgrades?

What's more stupid is Panzerfusiliers are a 4 squad of all MP 40s.

A real SVT for the guards might as well be given. Why bother to give them a fake one anyways; just give them 4 mosins if youre not going to give the SL (which btw, that hat is fucking epic. Screams guards Sgt and I love the wee Guards badge and ribbon he has on his uniform) a real SVT! :P And no, im not kidding. What real harm would it do anyways (this coming from playing EiR mod where PGs get a free G43; its not game breaking).

How is that stupid, Panzerfusiliers sound like Mechanized Infantry, which means they were more than often issued smaller weapons, the MP-40 being the premier German compact weapon, I would imagine them having it makes perfect sense.

Its to denote a Command Position in the squad, would it really matter to you if one guy has an MP-40 or StG44. The more important thing is the other benefits it confers, they get Grenades, and personally I would also add in some Sprint for them.

I guess Navs and Guards are both good. But they both suck without upgrades, but Guards suffer more from not having Shock Guards than do Navs from not having DP28 or PTRD.

I never thought I would see my self say this, but without upgrades of any sort, but Naval Infantry are better. I just love Guards, but they don't suit me anymore, but at least Guards are balanced.

Navales are quiet good to defend from heavy cover without upgrades.
