Yeah, 105mm howitzers like the ones below right?
Again, yeah, I can see that.
Yep. As for the US 105's I think that they'd be a mix of OTL American 105's and German 105's
A little of both perhaps.
I wonder, on the subject of camouflage, if anyone has considered this tidbit I found, one of the Nazi's less well known types, Palm Tree Pattern.
Something similar I could see being used, especially in Cuba and Haiti.
I never seen that camo pattern before, good find and I could definitely see it being used for tropical climes. I could the USMC using it.
My father is a WWII reenactor and collector. He has something in pretty much every camo pattern known to man prior to 2010.
Cool! Could you post a bigger pic showing the whole outfit?
Its actually a pic i found showing it. Here are some others.
Very interesting. This smock would've been perfect for paintball play at a P.B. park where I used to work at, some of the fields had a tropical feel to em and some had more brown trees and bushes on em.
How do you feel about the Confederates adopting a USMC style pattern of camo? No it wouldn't be tied to the USMC, but what I mean is how to feel about the Confederates, especially the Freedom Party Guards, adopting a pattern more along those lines, colored for the temperate climates of North America?
Isn't that exactly what the camo they wear in the art you commissioned is supposed to invoke?
Also, btw, I discovered that the "Frog Skin" camo associated with the Marines wasn't theirs alone. Apparently the 2nd Infantry Division used it in Normandy, but got rid of it quickly because other American units fired on them at times, mistaking them for Germans, due to lack of camouflage among other American units.
Ah, so you saw that! Okay then! Its supposed to be a combination of the Fall Leaf Pattern's color scheme (the reverse of the Palm Leaf smock you have I think) mixed with the Frog Skin pattern scheme.
And yes this is true! Guess you can say its the worst case of mistaken identity for the 2nd I.D.
Put an extra layer of darker greens on there and I'd say you got an effective jungle camo for the Confederates. The army might use them for tarps and tent covers and such, with the Freedom Party Guards potentially using a pattern with different shades.
Someone please don't let this thread die
Don't worry this one isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
I'll be posting pics every now and then when a good idea comes along.
Something I’ve been thinking of recently, given the relationship the CSA has with England, C.S. light infantry and special operations units wouldn’t look out of place in British Denison style smocks and camouflage, possibly becoming general issue later in the war.
Possible, perhaps in some different colors though to match terrain in the US.
There's a new thread up about "The Race" invading the world of TL-191 https://www.alternatehistory.com/forum/threads/the-race-invade-timeline-191-southern-victory.466944/
Thought some of you here might find it interesting.
This kinda feels like a Confederate infantry officer during the last days of sgw.
Would this be a Union or Confederate submachine gun?
