Notes:
  1. For the 75/28 Mountain Howitzers, use the Infantry Gun on the French Data Cards.
  2. This TO&E is not representative of 1st Mountain Division, which has a significantly altered organization.
  3. It's intended to represent 2nd, 3rd, and 6th Mountain Divisions in the far north, and they fight pretty well on the tundra. However, 6th Gebirgsjäger came straight up from Greece to the Petsamo/Murmansk area (lost all their Greek ponies doing it), so it's about right for the '41-42 time period just about anywhere.
