NOTE: ***Kriegsmarine Naval infantry texture mod will be located inside the "For Heart of the Reich and Downfall" folder.*** HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO USE IT WHILE PLAYING HEART OF THE REICH AND DOWNFALL MISSIONS. This mod will replace the default 'Luftwaffe infantry' into the Kriegsmarine Naval infantry. Due to the historical fact that some of the Naval infantry troops (likely to be a part of Grossadmiral Dönitz Battalion) were among the defenders during the Battle at Reichstag and its surrounding areas.
