A Gefreiter IMO. Look at the sleeve chevron insigna.

 

Corporal (Gefreiter). 100% sure.

Nice! Would be nice if they made the bomber version as well. While your at it add the bombsight to the P-38 “Droopsnoot”! Since they get an Arado, it would be nice to get some kind of late war fast level bomber.

Could make a wonderful Collectorplane - Doublepack with the Mosquito Mk IV/XVI.

Ok thanks. It looked like it but since there was another soviet and the uniform is sort of neutral i was wondering if it was something else.

Yes, probably the first uniform is the winter version and the second the spring / summer / autumn version.

That model is looking really good - nice to see that they modeled what looks to be the rank insignia of an Unterfeldwebel with the red Waffenfarbe of the Luftwaffe flak troops.

Did Sd.Kfz. 10/5s really have Luftwaffe and not Heer crews?

I guess Sd.Kfz. 10/5s with Luftwaffe crews only appeared in Luftwaffe divisions. In the eastern front battles we have in the game these only played a very minor role, so I am surprised that a Luftwaffe uniform was choosen for the model and not one from the Heer.

AA units were all Luftwaffe

Qué nación es el último uniforme. No puedo decirlo.

Los uniformes del ejército rojo cambiaron creo que en enero del 43, introdujeron las hombreras, cambiaron las insignias de rango y algunas cosas más. También lo notarás en los pilotos...

Certainly not at all.

 

Flak Abteilung figured in all motorized and mechanized units in the Heer and the ss. Not seen any Luftwaffe guys in these units.

When will the Germans get their winter uniforms?  Spring 1942 or so, I guess...

Its Gefreiter, Not Unterfeldwebel, you can tell by him not having the Silver Piping on his collar.

The Mosquito is easily my most anticipated plane for this sim! I do hope Amiens prison will be featured on the Normandy map? Some other flight sim developer somehow forgot to include it on their Channel map!

 

Tip for the devs: Please release it for MSFS2020 as add-on plane to make some extra bucks, but more importantly so I can do a world tour with it!

If I remember well the map, Amiens should be within the limits. But we would better ask for this particular building to @Jason_Williams to be part of the city

just some info to add to the confusion

 

GAF uniform.png

Not really Confusing, branch colors are an integral part of the German Military, even to this day, its just a lil bit difficult to remember all the different Colors and branches, it becomes natural after a while.
The Bundeswehr is Even more confusing, where you have Branch colors for the Broad Spectrum of the Branch and Barrett Insignias for the Specialization.

Binoculars everywhere. I trust they'll be part of the AAA functionality.

There was a flying word among soviet soldiers: "He looks like (means is clothed like) a Winter-Fritz.

@Talon_ looked into sortie reports and found the cannnon load was variable, sometimes with 160 rounds per gun, others with 240 rounds per gun.

 

 

 

Thanks!  I really hope they have the option of 240; it would make a big difference compared to 160.  One of my favorite things about the 110 G2 is that the 20mms hold 400/350 rounds.

The mossy should be good..

 

But whenever I see all these dressed up dolls (that I never see), I can't help thinking we could have had a new ww1 crate instead.

Do not knock dressing up the dolls, it can be a lot of fun.

I have yet to decide what I am going to do with the new female pilot in a movie.  Working title "Samara does Stalingrad".

With a title like that, I'm sure it involves a handful of olive oil....🙄

Not even close to the same personnel or workflow, skill sets or time frame.

 

It’s like seeing new seats and upholstery in a car and thinking that for that effort you could have a new V12 instead.

 

Not taking anything away from 3D character design - I’ve done it and it takes effort. Not the same thing as a new aircraft from the ground up however.

So, to confirm, there will not be a glass nosed version or Pathfinder load out?

 

What we are getting is what was stated on the pre-order page: a Mosquito F.B. Mk.VI. Along with the  57mm Molins gun option, which would make it a F.B. Mk XVIII. The glazed-nose versions weren't F.B.s, and I don't think that pathfinders ever used the fighter-bomber versions.

 

And what would we do with a pathfinder loadout anyway?

Though you are quite correct, I think amusingly those 633 Squadron aircraft actually are bombers with a covering over the nose. These seems a fairly obvious flat panel below the .303s
