The devs recently revealed the Austro-Hungarian soldiers and their weapons and uniforms. As seen above, some troops are wearing the Austrian M1917 helmet. This was an “in-house” made update to the German M16 helmet, for which the Austro-Hungarian forces received roughly around 500,000 units. Near the end of the war, another 500,000 local versions were brought into the fold, featuring different colors, chinstraps, and placement of rivets.
Moreover, the M1910 Entrenching tool main difference when compared to its previous version is the pointed tip. It was so sturdy, some were even re-issued to the Wehrmacht in WWII.
Looking over to the unofficially named M1888/15 canteen, it is said that it came from different manufacturers and is reflected through various name and date stamps.
When it comes to weapons, Many Steyr-Mannlicher rifles saw use. As seen above in the first picture, it looks like the second soldier is using a Gasser M1870 revolver (or another variant) due to the open-frame. In the second picture we can see the Steyr-Hahn pistol, although it’s unclear which version it is.
