I read some years ago, and even had a TO/E for a German Fallschirmjäger company organization, showing 3 Stg-44 squads, and a weapons squad of 2-3 lmgs. I cannot remember how many of the platoons in a company were organized thusly. For the last several years I have searched in vain for this reading. I am aware the Stg-44 was supplied to the 3. and 5. FjDivs in the BOB, and that the 3. FjD had a greater allocation of Stg-44 to make up for lack of troops. I am very curious about the allocation and organization at squad level and up of these units in BOB - any help?
thank you
