that has nothing to do with banning history, in fact, if FH2 was a documentary or a book nobody would complain.

The skull itself is not banned and could be used on uniforms. It is only banned in combination with the motto "meine Ehre hei├čt Treue". Considering the implementaion of tanker uniforms I think it is to much trouble for much too little effect. If it can be done with a reskin only like Taranov shows for the DAK tankers the extra work it would be reasonable. But the creation ofa own soldiermodel to get the garment right is on low priority.

Actually, each class can be assigned it's own uniform :P So technically it's possible :D On tanker maps/maps with the tanker kit that is. Pick ups wouldn't change skin, only hat and gear. Maybe you could just put the pink tabs rather than the skull :P

We needed to do that so it can't be used by Neonazis. Its more the thought of taking them the right to use it again.

But back to topic: What i wanted to say is, that many many german tank crews in the north african WW2 theatre were allowed by their commanders to get rid of most of their uniform parts when in battle (got a picture also, but my scanner doesnt work :( and tellings by my grand-uncle who drove a PZ-III in there).

They must wear it when outside of the tank on duty (like on guarrison) or while parades were made and reglemented events heppened like to welcome a new or returned general etc.

It was just a pragmatical thought because of the crazy temperatures at the time and that many men were completely dehydrated in their tanks.
