Imagine a world where the Allies didn't win the war, nor did the Axis. Instead, the war just continued on and on in an unsteady stalemate. Welcome, to the world of 1949. In this world Germany decided not to bomb London, but instead continued its attacks on Britain's airfields. Then, the Russians lost at Kursk. Finally, D-Day fails. With these victories, Germany has managed to halt the Allie's progress. In the Western Theatre, the Allies and the Axis each plan the invasion of the other's vital territories. In the Pacific, Japan and the United States are dueling over tiny islands with giant fleets and atomic weapons. Now, the stalemate is about to be broken. Germany is preparing an all out invasion of Britain. As tough and valiant as the Allied troops defending the Sceptered Isle are, some of their leaders are beginning to that they will be unable to hold against the Wehrmacht.

So they're conscripts?
By experience with shotguns is bad, I find you have to get to point blank range to do damage.

The VG-5 isn't a shotgun, though. It's more akin to a submachine gun. I suppose the clip isn't entirely apparent in this picture, but it is in the next two.

Please explain you comment. Does the unit or the weapon have a black seam?

I could care less about the black seam, I'm amazed to see the VG-5 in a video game!

Description

The Assault troops previously known as Volksgrenadiers will now be called Sturm Grenadiers instead, because the title of Volksgrenadier is much more fitting for these men. They are armed with the VG-5, a relatively simple, but deadly weapon. Volksgrenadiers are only available to the Wehrmacht, and appear under the same circumstances as Volkschutzen, which are unique. If you are thinking that I mean they are civilian units, you are mistaken. No old men or young children are these fellows. They are inexperienced, but combat can make them into a devastating unit of veterans.
