Hope you don't mind my bringing up this topic again but heres a good pic depicting Afrika Korps uniforms.

The center soldier is using Italian tropic pants, it was common for Wehr soldiers to adopt these because they were looser and let the legs "breathe" more.

The one on the right was in the German assigned tropic uniform. It was reportedly uncomfortable too close to the skin and hot. It was common for soldiers who either didn't have strenous jobs or couldn't afford the extra clothing to wear these.

The far left is in full tropic uniform. You can see how this looks rather unproffesional and was looked down upon by some commanders despite it's increased comfort. He looks almost British so I'm not even sure if this uniform was issued to any germans or taken off the British.

Not only should there be shorts, but rolled up sleeves and desert helmets (like the guy on the left in that drawing). I think the British used those helmets, but I'm not sure. :clueless: And I like the idea of random skin spawns, that would make for a more realistic feel rather than spawning next to my twin brother! lol

I don´t know, but Helmets make the soldiers look much less dangerous. Seems more like a holiday outing then war. But still, I´m for it !
