1st Czech Armoured Brigade Group
(Thank you again R. Mark Davies)
The Czechs arrived in Europe in late September '44 and relieved the 51st (Highland) Division in the siege positions around Dunkirk. This is where they stayed until April '45, being involved in numerous skirmishes and the odd assault. In April '45, they were sent to the US 3rd Army, which was advancing into Czechslovakia, and had the honour of liberating Prague (which shocked the Soviets somewhat, who were advancing into town from the other end - definitely unusual hypothetical scenario possibilities here: T34s versus Cromwells and Churchills anyone?).

1944-45 Volksgrenadier Divisional Fusilier Company
(Thank you Luke Willen)
Luke describes it:
Attachment to or reinforcement of a Volksgrenadier Division. The company should typically be used in scenarios in which the Volksgrenadier is either:
1 In a desperate situation. The company might be committed in a defensive role to a critical postition.Alternatively, it might be brought onto the table in the event that the enemy is breaking through.
2 Leading a major attack such as in the Ardennes offensive
3 Involved in a large scale counterattack
Discipline Rating would be Trained or experienced depending on whether we are representing the Fusilier Company from one of the 500 series divisions or one of the more experienced units.
