The Fallshirmjagers at Monte Cassino
The battle for the Cassino massif was probably one of the most savage in terms of conditions and actual fighting during W.W.II. The conditions under which the battle was fought under can only be described as hellish with pouring rain, sleet and snow falling almost constantly for three months. This made the effective deployment of armour almost impossible and the vast majority of the fighting was conducted using infantry and artillery assaults.
The two German armies defending Cassino and the surrounding areas from January-June 1944 consisted of the 10th and 14th Armies. The Fallschirmjäger element consisted of the 1st Parachute Division which was part of LXXXVI Panzer Korps (which was not involved in the first Cassino battle and would later become part of LI Mountain Korps) as well as the 4th Parachute Division as part of 1st Parachute Korps. This division was formed in December 1943 and contained elements of the Italian "Foglore and "Nembo" Divisions.

This skin does not give the german units a fallshirmjager helmet.
However I tried to make the uniform as correct as possible by adding:
- Bandoleer ( ammo holder arround the neck ) - Camo jumpsmock - Camo helm - Jump trousers - Jump boots
Installation: If you have the mod that enables the merciless textures to work with RTR then simple copy these files in the Cassino map. Otherwise use an RFA extractor. Enjoy, Gurki
