    @CivWarlords - Otto Skorzenny Commandos are part of SS so i think i choosed well Waffen SS (besides we already have model for it).

    OK Here's the list after your propositions:

    Germany - Waffen SS
    USA - Rangers
    Poland - Carpatian Rifles
    Italy - Bersaglieri
    Great Britain - British Commandos
    Soviet Union - Soviet Snipers
    Australia - Desert Rats
    France - French Foreign Legion
    Spain - Spanish Legion
    Finland - Jaegers

    Yeah. Its not many good ww2 mods for BtS. RtW is good but the lack of UI and bonuses is irritating. I hope this will be the best BtS ww2 mod ever! ;)

    i dont think the red guard were elite :)

    i would go for snipers, or NKVD that has police abilities

    for waffen SS could u use the kind that actually saw action in the field?(camo jacket)
    the SS with the trench coat were used for ceremonial and bodyguard purposes, am i wrong?

    Well it is silly to say Soviet Snipers, are they weren't elite either, nor were there entire sniper divisions.

    As for Guard regiments, that title was awarded to regiments which distinguished themselves through heroism and exceptional victories. Without a doubt the most significant title which an entire division could attain. I truly see no alternative if contrasting elite infantry such as Waffen SS or Commandos, then The Guards are the russian equivalent. As a Russian, I really think having divisions named Soviet Snipers sounds utterly ridiculous. But hey its not my mod is it :)

    Yeah that make sense. I would bet that couple of days ago i red on wiki about RedGuard and it was written only about theire fight during revolution in 1917.
    I agree they fit better than soviet snipers. Thx.

    YAY victory! The Guard regiments were re-introduced shortly after the invasion and became somewhat common by '43. The title could be applied to motorized divisions as well

    Peronally I find it very stupid to have any sort of sniper in the game. Each unit is supposed a brigade or a division, so in any of those snipers would already be incorporated.
