Was the uniform of German mountain troops during the invasion of Creta the same as regular infantry (field grey pants and green jacket)?

Thank you

They looted British stores on Crete and wore shorts with their standard tunic and field caps due to the heat.

Gorgon Studios do three packs in this uniform.

Gebirgsjager trousers are cut slightly differently to the regular infantry ones, but for wargaming purposes it isn't noticeable. The main thing are their unique mountain caps, which have a shorter peak than the late war ski caps.

Otherwise, hot sweaty field grey jackets and trousers. GJ badge on the upper right arm.

Some interesting items on the Gorgon site. Pity they dont bother putting what the scale it is. If they do I sure cant find it. Assuming it is 28mm?
