* EliteMooks: Two of them; the [[ItsRainingMen Fallschirmjager]] and the Waffen-SS. The former are essentially German Paratroopers who, like their American counterparts, are all volunteers. The latter are mechanized infantry armed with the latest and most advanced weapons NaziGermany has to offer, often supported by Panzers or Tank Destroyers. Both of them are notorious for packing more deadly automatic weapons than regular German infantry units.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Earned in Blood'' is no slouch either, which includes topics on the weapons and vehicles appearing in-game.
** ''Hell's Highway'' adds "Recon Points", which are basically this trope built into the level itself.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiAir: The Germans have two types: the 20mm Flakvierling and later, the 88mm Flak 36. Both are shown firing on Allied aircraft during different parts of each game. And sometimes they're to be destroyed as part of your objectives.


Added DiffLines:

* DeathFromAbove: The Paratroopers' purpose. In addition aircraft from both sides are shown attacking each other's respective ground forces during certain parts of the story.

* TankGoodness: Several tanks and SPGs from both sides appear in the game, and are usually part of your squad in certain missions, starting with the M5 Stuart and later the M4 Sherman for the Americans, the StuG III A/F and Panzer IV F1 for the Germans. Earned in Blood adds the long-barreled Panzer IV G which replaces the F1 in the single-player campaign, as well as adding the M10 Wolverine Tank Destroyer for the Americans. Hell's Highway brings in the Sherman Firefly, a british variant of the Sherman designed specifically for tank-killing.
