I. On 3rd of November, 2018  Flieger Thonar Krupp expertly led an ad hoc team in Oosterbeek, Holland as a member of 3. Kompanie, Fallschirm-Jäger-Regiment 2 “Ramcke”. During the Axis assault, I. Zug of 3. Kompanie was nearly annihilated during Allied onslaught.  Flieger Krupp exercised initiative by encouraging and leading the remaining Zug through the the Allied kill zone. Despite heavy fire, Flieger Krupp continued to return fire, providing much needed support for his beleaguered team. During his assault, the Allied forces attempted a counter-attack which was thwarted by Flieger Krupp who demonstrated commendable initiative by exposing himself to enemy fire while engage the enemy.  Flieger Krupp continued to lead the assault from the front thereby allowing his team to enter the town of Reijerscheide. The company requests to decorate Flieger Krupp  with the Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse.

Prospective Recruits

I. The FJR2 only offers three entry jobs for applicants who wish to join the unit: Gewehrschütze (Rifleman), MG schütze (Machinegunner), and MG-Helfer (MG Assistant).

          grenades, his role is to close distance with the enemy and eliminate them with grenades.

         gruppe to maneuver. His weapon of choice is the MG34 with 50-round box-magazines. Each Gruppe (Squad) has two
         MGs.

Public Annoucements / Fallschirmjäger Regiment 2 - Three Year Anniversary

Betr:    Fallschirmjäger Regiment 2 - Three Year Anniversary

Heil Fallschirmjäger!

I. Many of you reading this post on the 26th of September, may see a cake icon by the names of Weiss and me. I will clarify that neither Weiss nor I am turning three years old today. However, it does mark our third year in operation. I do not usually speak of how we founded this unit or why, but here is a brief look at our history.

II. The FJR2 was an idea first conjured by Pfeffer after our disappointment in the lack of German units in the game Darkest Hour '44. Back from the Middle East for a few months, I accepted the suggestion to create and revitalize interest in German realism for the DH community. I founded the unit alongside Pfeffer, Weiss, Erichsen, Fitz, Benvolio, and Sanford on September 26, 2015. Shortly after, our first match was fought on October 11, 2015 against the Grenadier Regiment 559 which resulted in a victory for the FJR2. Having to return to the Middle East that Christmas, I put the project on hiatus. Upon my return in March, Erichsen accepted the offer to take second-in-command, and we resumed operations. For the next year-and-a-half, we fought against the 29th Infantry Division.

III. In 2017, we began working to transition our group to Hell Let Loose. We made a fateful decision to transition to Post Scriptum in August, and we resumed normal operations on August 28th. Our entry back into the Realism Community was marked by our first match with our fellow Axis unit compatriots: 9.SS, 14W, and the Lehr.

IV. Our continued success and growth is all owed to the resounding efforts of our members. This anniversary is a celebration of your hard work and devotion. Thanks to all of you, and congratulations for three years of unprecedented success
.

Happy Birthday FJR2!

Café Oosterbeek / Original Combat Videos from the Wehrmacht.
« on: June 29, 2018, 06:06:01 PM »
There's quite a "hidden" library of instructional videos that were used by the Lehrgang (Training Cadre) at various training and replacement facilities throughout the war. I thought it'd be nice to assemble a collection of links for people who want to view them at their own leisure.

The Platoon in Close Quarters Combat: A video on how German infantry platoons should execute a textbook assault on enemy positions. The tactical dictum espoused the use of the bayonet to deliver the killing blow to the enemy. Here we see a German infantry platoon attack Soviet Army forces in a forest. The video teaches viewers how to close the distance from shooting to melee combat.

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anSa1zI7uiQ&index=126&list=PLNPodQKJo1ImJrIIT6NaKnb38Sn6-p0XN&t=0s


Parachute Training: This video superficially overviews the Fallschirmschule in the early days of the war. It overviews the jump school curriculum in its entirety including the training received during the 4 week course. Very few documentation exists today about the school, and the film provides a summary of what the soldiers learned and trained.

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rG3EvZwVICs&list=PLNPodQKJo1ImJrIIT6NaKnb38Sn6-p0XN&index=122

Panzergrenadier tactics: As the war continued, the Fallschirmjager transformed from an Airborne unit to a highly mobile infantry formation. Indeed, jump operations continued throughout the war (in various scale), but they would never jump in a formation comparable to Operation Mercury (Battle of Crete). Well-equipped and highly trained, they worked alongside Panzergrenadiers on every front (particularly the SS). We can intelligently assume that as formations used to augment the SS-Panzergrenadiers, they adopted much of their tactics. For instance, Fallschirmjager and panzergrenadier formations both used two light machineguns per squad. At Normandy, Arnhem, and at the Battle of the Bulge, Fallschirmjager units frequently rode on SS-Panzers and Sd.Kfz. (half-tracks) into battle.  This video provides a perspective on what later war tactics may have looked like for Fallschirmjager units operating alongside mechanized formations.

As you guys find videos on youtube, I encourage you to post them here. While they shouldn't singularly compose your research, they're great introductory tools and visual aids to grasp an understanding of German tactics during WW2.

Village Defense: As the Germans gave ground and lost momentum, defense became an important strategy to master. Here's a video on village defense against Russian Forces. It features a platoon sized element defending against Soviet tanks and infantry. It's quite interesting to note that the video recognizes Soviet infantry tactics and nearly dispels the sterotype of Soviet human wave tactics which were quickly discarded as the war on the Eastern Front progressed. We can observe that the Russian infantry even mimics German infantry tactics: they bound without shooting to minimize exposing their position and advances under covering fire from the MG. Meanwhile German defenses are evidently centralized around the MG which is constantly displaced after firing a few bursts. Even more significantly, German troops can be seen using captured Soviet weaponry indicating that captured weapons (particularly on the Western front) was recognized even at the highest levels. Of note, pay attention to the extreme fire discipline of German forces.

Café Oosterbeek / Feedback and Suggestions for Post Scriptum
« on: May 29, 2018, 10:24:44 PM »
Now that we've played Post Scriptum, I'd like us to use this thread as a forum for what we enjoyed and did not like. Let's also include suggestions along with our opinions on how we think this game could become the WW2 shooter that we desire. We're all aware of the bugs and glitches, but I want us to mainly focus this thread on gameplay and immersion/realism. What did you guys think about the weekend playtest?

     3. FJR 2 OPERATIONS & EVENTS: While the Regiment is officially operational, we will postpone trainings and official events until the game is released. Once again, I
         encourage all of you to remain active during the testing period, but there will be no events with mandatory attendance requirements. Continue to keep an eye on announcements
         and the teamspeak for dates in the near future!
