1. Fallschirmjäger Division, 3. Regiment, 3. Battalion, 9. Kompany
The 3rd Regiment:
Officially formed in August 1940, FJR3 was considered combat ready by spring of 1941. The 3rd Regiment took part in many battles including the airborne invasion of Crete, combat action at the Neva River in Russia, the North African campaign, a second action on the Eastern front near Smolensk, the defense of Sicily, and holding actions in Central and Northern Italy. Perhaps their most famous exploit was their defense of Cassino, where the 1st Division blocked the entire U.S. 5th Army for months while under heavy bombardment from allied artillery and bomber squadrons.
The 1st Fallschirmjäger Division, 3rd Regiment, 9th Kompany, is inviting WWII enthusiasts to experience WWII history through tactical Airsoft combat, living history and blank fire reenactments.
As a historical reenactment group, we seek the highest level of authenticity in all aspects of our impression. We do not expect everyone who joins to have every piece of clothing and gear issued, but we do expect them to continue to build their impression to eventually meet the highest level of authenticity.
Our Mission Statement:
