The Great War is a modification for Company of Heroes meant to bring the war two decades earlier. This mod focuses on the later years of the First World War. Currently the two teams will be the British Expeditionary Force against the German Empire, however with time the team will try and bring some more nations in, such as France and Austria-Hungary. This mod will focus or realism but keep the game balanced enough to make it enjoyable. Things to look for in the mod are the famous artillery strikes and the infamous gas attacks. Trenches will provide vital cover for infantry while tanks will roll over the battlefield and instil fear into the enemy troops.

will there be an option on the soldier tool bar giving us the option to put on and take off the gas mask as we please or no?

No. Soldiers have too much self-preservation to follow the order to remove gasmasks in the middle of a gas cloud, and gasmasks are too stuffy and impractical to wear outside of one.

That, and we don’t want to animate soldiers showing the middle finger at the player’s screen when either silly order is given.

if i hadn't read the above comments i'd say those german soldiers are hiding in a trench with a gas cloud in it...i know it wouldn't be chlorine Gas in the image (commonly known as mustard gas due to the yellow-ish cloud it makes) so my question is would that be Phosgene gas? or just a generic gas?

Mustard gas is bis(2-chloroethyl) sulfide and a vesicant. Chlorine is a different poison gas and an irritant like phosgene.
The green cloud in the picture is used for Green Cross gas (historically a mix of chlorine and phosgene). Yellow Cross (Mustard Gas) has a yellow-brown cloud effect.
