Hahaha the "Blue" division was a division if Spanish volunteers who fought for Germany.

And Dartborne, other than cosmetic changes, what will be the other differences? Different upgrades I suppose?

No, due to historical reasons this unit should be eliminated,but it will be kept as a reward for people who like this division. The only difference is that it replaces the grenadiers and are available in any doctrine of the Wehrmacht in Europe.

What do you mean it should be eliminated for historical reasons? Because they didnt fight on the Western Front or something?

Awesome, for those who do not know who these men are, they are the Spanish Blaue Division. Essentially they were a group of volunteers that served on the eastern front. For those people wondering about the uniforms, they wore blue shirts in Spain on leave, while they were forced to wear German Heer uniforms on the field. Although i do think they should be kept out of the mod unless Russia is added as they were a force that would ONLY fight communism, as to keep peace with the allies and assist Hitler as a repayment for assisting them in the Spanish Civil War. Essentially they are elite troops not so much in training but in shear luck, IE Holding off a Russian force 7 times larger that also had tanks. In my opinion they should become an elite call in unit as there was only 18,104 troops in total.

In the 250 inf. div. (Blaue division 1941-1943) served around 47,000, in the Blaue Legion (1943-1944) served 1500 and around 150 fought in waffen ss units (1944-1945) first in Pomerania and Brandenburg inside 28 ss wallonien and later as part of 11 ss Nordland in Berlin.
You say: "Essentially they are elite troops not so much in training but in shear luck", Three years of civil war not enough training??? and dont forget africans wars veterans like legionnaires.
