In the first action, the Germans attempted a mobile defense where they tried to continually engage and disengage the Americans while constantly shifting positions, with the intention of counterstriking when the American forces became too strung out. Unfortunately for Reich forces, the best that could be issued were shoddy, worn out weapons long past their cmbat effectiveness. As the Germans lost gun after gun, the Wehrmacht commander found himself at less than 40% of fighting strength. Seeing no way to effectively combat the numerically superior American forces with most of his weapons out of the fight, he brokered a surrender with the American field commander. There were some tense moments as American troops continued to fire on German forces, and when the German commander insisted-- at the risk of being shot-- on handing over his sidearm himself in the Prussian tradition. The morning went to the Amis.
The German surrender:
Oppsosing commanders salute:
The American Sergeant in charge checks captured intelligence. Unfortunately, the maps are outdated and useless.
I was thinking the same thing as I walked through your visual tutorial. Thanks for sharing and actually the delay in getting them posted was actually quite nice. I am in the humidity and monsoon of florida right now and the winter scenes and fond memories have been wonderful.
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.
