I'm thinking of starting a German army for both SOTTR and Bolt action. It seems however that in SOTTR quite alot of the basic infantry is armed with the STG44, now in the German book is it only the SS units who can be upgraded to use it or can ordinary troops ?

The stg 44 was only handed out in the last few months of the war hence (then the ruskies got it and u have ur ak)

Why only elite units got them the fallshimjager had the Fg-42 Which is the same

I have not read the book, but two infantry divisions were entirely equipped with stg44. Otherwise, specialist troops used them on an ad-hoc basis.

There is anecdotal evidence that links the AK to the stg44, but mechanically speaking they are completely different.
