The article says “The Face of the Misttrooper / Mistsoldier”.

The “Nebeltruppe” is an interesting bunch. They are one of the very few units in the modern Bundeswehr that kept some ties to their Wehrmacht origins. They still call themselves “The Bordeaux-Red Ones” because thats the color the Wehrmacht-High Command assigned them, and even today the still have a Kinda-“Reichsadler” on their flag: https://i.imgur.com/emPJesy.jpg
