Picture developed from combining http://www.fanart-central.net/pictures/user/TeeJay87/850855/Bride-of-Partisan-Mona-WIP-3 , http://www.fanart-central.net/pictures/user/TeeJay87/850869/Home-Army-Stan-WIP and http://www.fanart-central.net/pictures/user/TeeJay87/850908/Home-Army-Penelope-WIP with couple of modifications and background added - 3/5 of Team Pussycat (without Delilah and Ian) are dressed as members of Armia Krajowa (Home Army) , our legitimate resistance from World War 2:

- Mona dressed in Erbsenmuster Waffen SS camouflage smock with M35 Stahlhelm in matching cover, worn on civilian outfit composed of white female shirt and red skirt (our national colours), wielding Kar.98k. with Polish bayonet for wz.29 Mauser carbine attached;

- Stan dressed in set composed of early variant Platanenmuster jacket, Sumpfmuster pattern trousers, bare M42 Stahlhelm with painted white-and-red overall and Polish eagle of the 2nd Republic attached, wielding Sturmgewehr 44;

- Penelope fully equipped with standard Waffen SS issue from period 1943-45: Eichenlaub trousers (tailored for Penny's leg shape) and matching Stahlhelm cover with late-war model of Platanemuster jacket, supplemented with same Stg 44 like Stan is wielding.


Naturally our feline insurgents have adorned their salvaged-from-Nazi-occupants uniform sets with proper insignia, just like our Home Army soldiers did:

That white-and-red anchor on wall behind our feline insurgents is symbol of the Fighting Poland and our Underground State 1939-1945 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_Underground_State . Background is supposed to look that simple - Warsovians have deserved reputation inside the rest of Poles as primitive people without taste. The title refers to operation performed by the Home Army https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Tempest


Mona and Penelope Pussycat belong to PAWS Inc.
Stanisław Zaleski belongs to me.

TeeJay87I've been planning to depict those German WW2 camouflage uniforms without drawing troops from Wehrmacht or SS.

It's not impossible, since our legitimate resistance members did wear those, especially between 1944 and 1947 (as in links), I've heard that Czechoslovak resistance also had similar taste of fashion like Home Army did, while French Maquis or "Russian WW2 resistance", since members of those formations are always shown wearing civilian uniforms.

As for weapons, those Sturmgewehr 44 wielded by Stan and Penny are quite tricky to depict - their basic shape is similar to AK47 (Kalashnikov had to rip off "his famous gun*" from somewhere), just the details cause some trouble.



* It sounds ironical, especially since Misha (Mikhail Kalashnikov) developed prototype of AK47 in the times of deep Stalinism, where private property was purged by Chekists. It's quite a hypocrisy, that Bolshock gun constructors did name their means of "spreading socialism" with their names, don't you think ? Marx would call it self-privileging ! xD
Some examples are below:
- Tokaryev TT-33 (handgun)
- Simonov (rifles)
- Dyegtaryev (LMGs)
- Goryunov (HMG)
- Nudelman-Suranov (37mm autocannon used in aircraft, especially MiG-15 and Su-7 )

TeeJay87Hope it's visible, that those three aren't die Katzengrenadier* ?


*German nouns ending with -er don't have suffixes in plural form, only plural article die.
