Grenadier Abteilung 1939-1940 (Infantry Regiment)

With the glory of battle going to the SS and panzer units, the bulk of the German army still compromised of the venerable Grenadier (Infantryman). However much has been learned in lessons of World War I. The 1939 grenadier regiment featured huge leaps in equipement and organization from its basic great war infantry unit. Each infantry company was strengthened with its own heavy weapons platoon. Each infantry squad now featured a machine gun. All riflemen were equipped with automatic pistols to allow for fast, hard hitting attacks. Each regiment now featured either an armored car team to outflank the opposition or a especially trained assault pioneer company to break through it. Radios were common all across the broard to allow for a great increase in fighting efficiency. Light anti-aircraft and anti-tank assets were given to allow them to hold ground against all opponents. Due to a mass increase of heavy weapons each infantry company had support from its own heavy machine gun, anti-tank rifle, light mortar subunits. Only light anti-tank assets were its on major defficiancy in the face of heavier supperior French armor. This in total made the average grenadier regiment more than a match for any equal unit that had to go against it. Only their foot speed made them more of a mop-up and defensive unit, while the motorized assets got most of the 'glory'.
