Sitting in the headquarters BTR, Oberstleutenant Wimmer was looking at his Oberstabsfeldwebel. With the Reserve Panzer Division, many of the senior sergeants were older men.
How old was Oberstabsfeldwebel Steiner? The older man looked at his commander and grinned. “Ja, Herr Oberstleutenant, today I will command my panzer one more time!”
Wimmer gave a second look at the Regimental Sergeant Major and noticed he had pinned on some other medals with his regulation dress. The Third Reich verboten wound medal 2nd class, the verboten Iron Cross First Class and some other awards had been added.
Oberstleutenant Wimmer saw the red ribbon of the IC2 in two other senior sergeant’s button hole. He smiled to himself. At least some of his tankers had experience, even if it was 40 years old.06/01/2022 at 05:59 #166743
The Danes of Vordingborg barely noticed as the guards on the petrol stations were changed. These men hardly looked different, but their uniforms were not as neat and they paid more attention to their weapons.
Almost beneath the eyes of a few Danish stay behind watchers, the 10th Panzer had replaced units at the front. The few old T34 tanks and erstaz were left out in positions as under the cover of night, T55M and BMPs, BTRs and PR76 moved out.
Fresh artillery positions were dug in and provided with overhead cover and replaced ammo dumps. Anti-aircraft guns and missiles were also in improved positions. Roving patrols were also heard. Only the elderly had any advice. # 1 stay off the streets! # 2. Sleep in your basement with a stockpile of food and fresh water.09/01/2022 at 03:33 #166853Jonathand KeepersParticipant

And I am back busy building QRF Russian kit for Brave little Denmark.11/01/2022 at 06:22 #166931
Major Gruber was a very worried man, all the signs that the East Germans would attack at dawn were lit up red, the refugee’s scouts and intel pointed to an early morning with overwhelming force. and he had no tanks at all…12/01/2022 at 06:01 #167012
Pvt Peters heard hoofbeats in the predawn fog and was surprised when a man and horse suddenly appeared in front of him, he stumbled back to his guard post and belatedly called out halt who goes there!!!! The man reined the horse in and replied Odin. Pvt Peter called out the password Raven!!! The man dismounted and held the reins in one hand and shook Prt Peters hand with the other, Agent Zed reporting in where is your Commander??? Pvt Peters stammered Major Gruber is 5o meters to my rear, Let me call my Sargent to guide you to him…12/01/2022 at 08:20 #167014
The 3 Nornamdy Qweens flew on made their drops and 2 headed back to Scotland…13/01/2022 at 02:21 #167043
Grendal snickered as he watched the parachutes drifting down to the swampy marshes. It helps to have agents in the NATO forces. A slight adjustment caused one of the old gooney birds pilots to misjudge his assigned drop zone and instead of an open pasture, the heavily laden paratroopers were headed for a bottomless swamp.
If any survived the plunge, they would be without their equipment.
Grendal reported a successful operation to his superior and moved to his next assignment.13/01/2022 at 18:14 #167075
Oberstleutenant Wimmer came back from his inspection of the grounded freighter. The men had been working feverishly to remove ammunition and equipment as well as any salvageable vehicles. He wondered how orders had gotten so screwed up as to send the “museum battalion” into battle.
The ship should be afloat and emptied soon. Then it could go back and bring the second wave after some major repairs. Another foggy morning to start the day. He drove himself to his field headquarters. It was time to move.18/01/2022 at 08:55 #167228
Alex Bates fought for control of the aircraft the flack has taken out his port engine and he was coming in too fast, the gas filed barrels lit the runway he steered to he cut the starboard engine and feathered the props, and tried to lower the landing gear but the flack must have cut his hydraulics as nothing happen, he got on the intercom and yelled, brace your selves we are belly landing…
When the Normandy Qween shuttered to a stop just feet from the end of the runway, Alex quickly unbuckled and made his way down the back of the plane telling the Marines and Royal Marines to grab their shit and get out of the plane before it caught fire!!! Later as he and the Marines lay on the grass coughing from the thick black smoke from the fire engulfed plane he thought close one. The Normandy Qween would never fly again so Alex asked the Local commander what he should do. Do the Officer said You are now drafted into the Royal Marines and grab 20 rounds of mortar bombs…you are a pack-mule…18/01/2022 at 14:08 #167242
Major Gruber looked at the 4 school buses of reinforcements that had arrived in the nick of time the East Germans would be attacking in less than 3 hours…18/01/2022 at 15:44 #167260
When Oberstlieutenant Wimmer received the message from his scouts in the town ahead, he frowned. Then he summoned his artillery chief. What did they say about “the best laid plans”?18/01/2022 at 23:54 #167278
The PsyOps radio station sending a message to the town of Ubey.p
Opmærksomhed borgere i Ubey.
Din by er en friild kampzone. Tank nødvendige forholdsregler.19/01/2022 at 08:36 #167285
Alex never thought he would be fighting in Denmark but here he was, he thanked the Gods he had deposited all the CIA money before he had taken off on his now one-way trip to Denmark.13/05/2022 at 23:07 #172890
Senior lieutenant Starsky rode up to Oberstlieutenant Wimmer. Dawn was still just a suggestion in the east.
“Sir, we have a great day ahead! This town can be easily bypassed to the right flank. There are several good roads. The bridges will easily support our heaviest vehicles.”
“Very good!” replied Oberstlieutenant Wimmer. “Panzer vor!”
The Regiment plus additional equipments and attachments quickly bypasses the Danish town while the defenders slept. As the trail elements withdrew, they left some presents for the defenders along each road leading south or east.
The roads ahead were clear as the rising sun greeted the columns of vehicles headed north to the relief of the beleaguered airborne forces.14/05/2022 at 16:16 #172923
So ends the campaign, I just lost my focus and butterflied off to the next new thing.14/05/2022 at 23:22 #172936Shaun TraversParticipant
I enjoyed it while it lasted.
You are not in a lonely place, we are all butterflies.15/05/2022 at 00:00 #172937
Thank you, Shaun and Craig Farrow. Now that the weather is warm I’m working outside on my back porch getting the rafters for the roof up. I’ve only injured myself a little bit…15/05/2022 at 00:51 #172938Shaun TraversParticipant
Yeah, I have been following your exploits on FB. Try not to injure yourself too much!
