I've noticed people talking about squad leaders and squad leader weapons in Axis infantry, such as Volksgrenadiers. CoH-Stats supports this too.
I have never seen this before. Can anyone explain how they work?
- What infantry squads from all factions have these special individuals? Is it Wehrmacht only for certain veterancy levels?
- How different are they? I honestly have never seen a standard Volks squad carry 1 MP40. Are they significantly different or is it simply just the gun they carry that makes them special?
- What do they look like, do they look any different from the other troops? And, if a squad leader is killed, does another squad member take over his stats/weapon, or does he only reappear through reinforcing?
