Would be cool, but would also overlap with Osttruppen a lot. I guess that's not a big deal if they're in different doctrines. It could make use of mixed models like weapon crew, male partisan, and grenadier.

But, which faction and most importantly what would they bring to the table?

They will give real one rifle for three, and not the mythical Red Army one rifle for three.

You can play with this sort of units in SneakEye's All Units Mod.

It's probably the best mod out there.

Could make it an OKW unit that performs basic engineering functions such as rudimentary repair, laying mines/minesweeping, building entrenched positions, etc. Could also give it the Conscript AT grenade volley in the form of multiple panzerfausts.

Also, it could give OKW real barbed wire and allow the faction to actually wire off cover.

Technically volksgrenadiers are the precursor to the volkssturm. It wouldn't be a reliable military unit without some hardened veterans in the mix.

Think partisans but retreating at the first chance they get.

The only similarities between the Volksgrenadier and Volkssturm are the word "Volk" and the fact that they were lower quality than what was previously established. Volksgrenadiers were still a professional military formation with standardized uniforms and equipment and staffed with trained soldiers. Volkssturm were a militia with no standardized uniforms or equipment and staffed with untrained civilians.

Same thing as the British "Dad's Army" (Home guard), really.
