I have read a least one account of a Allied service men crossing paths with a deadly gorgeous French Resistance woman. There are also some photos floating around of the French resistance women dressed very casually for combat, but most have at least some articles of uniform on.

The pose in the middle is a bit much for 1944 but the others could also be ordnance workers test firing guns.

Although they would be more likely to wear coveralls and slacks than skirts.

They are probably meant to be fighters, however.

I could be mistaken, but I think these figures are based on one of the cartoon series in one of the Japanese hobby magazines that have the panzer crew girlfriends accompanying the troops during the retreat.
