Hello everyone! I've been lurking around here on the forums for a while and with everything I've seen I decided that now I really do want get into the WW II side of airsofting and it wasn't just some passing fancy I had. Due to monetary reasons, the cost of a gun that is not a thompson, I have decided to go with a US Army combat engineer impression with an ICS Grease Gun. I have been trying to find a guide to what the standard equipment of and engineer was and if there were any uniform differences separating them from standard infantry? Any help would be much and appreciated, and thank you.
There is no difference in the uniform and gear between a regular dog face and a combat engineer , both wear the same uniform
M37 wool's M41 jacket HBT uniform Leggings and later M43 Double Buckle Boots M1 helmet ( you can stencil an engineers castle on the front if you want) M36 pistol belt M1910 canteen , cup and canteen cover first aid pouch either a 5 cell mag pouch or a GP bag.
Hope this helps you out
ME NE FREGO. Guns don't kill people , husbands who come home early do. I am here to chew bubble gum and kick ass , and I am all out of bubble gum
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
