New German Squad
How about putting in the Uhlans as a new unit i know there cavalry but i thought it would make a change to the trenches rather than just seeing the same old German squads.

Problem for German squads now is equipment, it'll just end up a reskin of existing squads.
i suppose they could add some cavalry versions of the rifles or others pistols and maybe the mondragon rifle

the senegalese dont really have new weapons.

We have the "cavalry version" of the rifles, the K88 and K98az were given to the cavalry. Mondragon rifle only saw field trials, wouldn't have been given to a Cavalry unit for that.
hmm i guess your right then i suppose we could have different abilites then

What about the Mauser Model 1871?

According to Wikipedia :

1,900,000 Produced 1871–1890

There are also later variants / upgrades :

M71/84: 8-round tubular magazine
M80/07: 5-round stripper clip, internal magazine

Saw limited use during WW1 and WW2 (again, according to wiki)

according to wiki again it was used by cavaliers, so seems to fit the tone

note: it also mentions carabine versions

No combat use by the Germans. Was a home guard type weapon for them, only combat use of the German ones that's been shown was in Ireland.

Not really found anything on it, tend to just lead to G98 with it, and most of those are in the hands of sentries.

already in game , its the high-level call ins for the schutzens.

in 680 hours, ive probably seen the bertha 2-3 times tbh. high level squads are rare, and for some reason clans dont play schutzens much

the Kar88 was not given to cavalry, at least in WW1. it wasn't used by frontline troops at all and should not be in the game to begin with.

yes that was me and yes it obviously saw frontline service. the point is we don't know how rare it was.

The Bote (4th Role) in the Schutzen Squad gets a G98 with the Trench Magazine.

no, thats a gew with a trench mag. yeah, would play almost the same, but if the devs consider the senegalese berthier as a new weapon...
