Tim Marshall gives paratroopers “German” Command and Control and good officers. But the troop quality can be Veteran, Regular or even Green.
Excerpt from Tim Marshall published in the Crossfire-WWII discussion forum.
The way I do paras is not so much veterans, but I give them German C&C characteristics. This makes sense when you think about it (I also give most late war Germans US/British C&C and for volksstrum, I give em Soviet C&C). I think with the German C&C and really good officers (most of my para PCs will be +2 and I even give the battalion CO a +3) you can then vary the green/regular/veteran. From my reading on US paras, mainly General Gavin’s memoirs, I give the above characteristics and for Sicily I make them green, Normandy, regular (many of the Germans they fought would be classified as green at that time) and by Market Garden, veteran.
