A25.11
... SS are entitled to Assault Fire capabilities in any scenario during 1944-45. ...

Questions:
Do 468, 447, 436 squads with printed SS insignia get Assault Fire benefits in/after 1944?
There are no 436 squads with printed SS insignia. The others get Assault Fire in/after 1944.

Do 468, 447, 436 squads specified by SSR to be SS get Assault Fire benefits in/after 1944?
Generally speaking, yes, although the SSR may override that.

Do 468, 447, 436 squads that are specified to belong to a SS unit ("Elements of...") get Assault Fire benefits in/after 1944?
Not unless the SSR (or counter) specifies them as SS.


ALL of the above also applies to the characteristics described below.


A25.11
.. SS will not surrender to Russians via the RtPh method (20.21), do not become Disrupted while opposing Russians, and may perform Massacre (20.4). ...

Questions:
Are 468, 447, 436 squads and their HS with printed SS insignia entitled to the above characteristics?
Are 468, 447, 436 squads and their HS specfied by SSR to be SS entitled to the above characteristics?
Are 468, 447, 436 squads and their HS that are specified to belong to a SS unit ("Elements of...") entitled to the above characteristics?



So as a bottomline, it is the SS-Insignia printed on the counter and/or the SSR spelling units out to be SS which determines the applicability of SS characteristics.
