    A Gebirgsdivision is a basically a normal Infanteriedivision but with only two infantry regiments instead of three. About 14,000 men in a Division.

    A Mountain Infantry Regiment:
    1 Regtl HQ - 25 men
    1 Regtl HQ Kompanie - 182 men, 4 LMGs, 2x150mm Howitzers
    3 Mtn Inf Battalions with ea. 877 men, 40 LMGs, 12 HMGs, 6 81mm mortars, 4 120mm Mortars, 2 75mm Mountain Inf Howitzers
    16th Kompanie (A/T) - 190 men, 6 LMGs, 36 Panzerschrecks, 3 75mm AT Guns
