Just read an interesting article with several examples of politics and events seemingly a world apart influencing battles seemingly unrelated. One example was when Barbarossa lost momentum and the wise, strategic move was to halt,regroup, replenish establish your supply situation and prepare for Winter. Hitler didn't and historians and Military experts wondered why. At that point in the war Hitler knew that Japan was edging toward attacking the US and he loved their Navy, aggressive spirit and what he thought would be their ability to tie down America in the Pacific. Hostilities kept getting pushed back as Japan and the US maintained negotiations. Hitler was afraid if his offensive appeared stalled Japan would hold off or maybe even cancel their attack.
To keep Japan thinking aggressively he ordered his generals pushing in Russia in spite of the logical arguments of his field commanders to slow down. These seemingly unrelated theaters absolutely contributed to events worlds apart.
Stalin should have known communism wouldn't work. There were red flags everywhere!"
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
