Hi, I know this is very old post, but I'll try here first. I am trying to complete loadout from 369th Infantry regiment (Croatian) for airsoft. Most of the pics I saw has the soldiers in german uniform and equipment. But I read somewhere they used other uniforms as well. So my question is which type of german uniform is correct for the Legion during their time in Ostfront? I can purchase M36,M40 or M42. Helmet as well. Is other regular german field equipment ok for that loadout? I am making another loadout from Pz.Gr.GD, but that one is much easier.

about italian legion we must correct a mistake of translation : "Legione Autotrasportata " mean transported by cars ( or trucks) , non a transport unit : In Italian Army means that has an autonomous capacity of mechanized transport more than a normal infantry unit.
