In Berlin the troops were equipped with MP44, Kar98k mit Scheissbecher and MG42. I think it was the thir company who in Berlin to a large extent wore pea pattern camouflage trousers with regular field tunics.

Kroatische, you should not accuse Jason of being ignorant. If you had cared to read what it says a bit better (or knew the history of Bosnia-Herzegovina a bit better) you would know that between 1941 and 1945 the province of Bosnia-Herzegovina was incorporated into the independent state of Croatia. ...
