"Double shields for anti-tank guns
Shields of Russian anti-tank guns can effortlessly be used on German anti-tank guns. Remove the shields from all Russian guns that cannot be repaired for use in the German army to replace knocked out German guns and attach them as secondaries on German guns.
Platoon and company gunsmiths can perform this task.
