...the host of mods just makes it irresistible, well done BFC and thanks to all modders too, hopefully get more (better ones) soon.

Indeed.

BTW you can get rid of the pause notice from your screen shots by pausing using the <shift><ESC> key. The <ESC> key pauses and adding the <shift> key pauses without displaying the pause notice.

They don't pick them up. That must be a uniform mod that adds US uniforms on german soldiers.

Would be nice if the 101st airborne got some pzf's tho since they actually had a large stockpile of them after italy (or was it the 82nd?)

Are we looking at the Bulge mod and one of Skorzeny cheeky chaps? ;)

Hanging back seemed to be the thing to do for the new replacement. Let the guys who knew what they were doing be up front. That was working well until he noticed that flash out of the corner of his eye...headed right towards thsat armored car parked outside...

Damn not even enough for a ticket home... although it beats being a crew member in that armored car.

Nice pics. It's cool to see there are actually players who use one of the optional skins. I was always afraid they were a wee bit in-your-face. :)

It was the 82nd, and I think they became a regular thing only after Normandy. According to Gavin's memoirs they were became part of the TOE and they conducted regular training with them.

Other units used them as well but in a less organized fashion. They seem to have been somewhat popular with the Soviets as well, mainly for bunker busting.

I'm sort of against soldiers just picking them up since they were quite hazardous and there wasn't really a similar US (or other Allied) weapon which they would already know how to use.

I recall reading that they captured the stash in italy and used it during (and after) the landing in normandie.

Can't recall where I read that tho.

Yes, I'm not saying they should, just that the picture is probably from a mod that adds US uniforms to germans since they don't pick up weapons as it is.

Whether or not they should is a whole other discussion (that is not for this thread)

Isn't that Douglas Bader trying to escape?

Completely forgot who he was so I had to check it out on wikipedia...

And at the bottom I found this gem "Bader died on 5 September 1982, from a sudden heart attack."

Call me crass, but aren't all heart attacks sudden?

For those interested, this little storyboard is continued from part one here.

Overview

As the set-to between the American infantry platoon, their pair of supporting M4s and the defending Fallschirmjager begins to swell, each sides respective battalions begin committing additional attached and organic assets into the AO in an escalating race to shape the battle in their favor. What started as a struggle between two depleted platoons for a minor crossroads and an adjoining farmstead begins to transfigure into an increasingly invested and lethal encounter.

Below Top:

To the rear of Baker Company's stunned 2nd Platoon, a US combat engineer platoon debuses into the battlearea and immediately begins moving to the sound of the fight.

Below Middle:

Combat hardened and considerably equipped with assault demolitions and man portable AT weapons, they adeptly set to linking up with the freshly positioned M4A3 sent to aid 2nd Platoon's snakebitten 1st and 2nd Squads.

Below Bottom:

Continuing to develop the situation, the engineers coordinate their efforts with 2nd Platoon's supporting armor and breach a hedgerow to afford the tank crew a more protected route to assist the panic stricken infantry forward of their position. As these actions are conducted, the engineers' own attached M4, equipped with a 105mm gun, comes online.

Below Left:

Apprehensive the Americans are following their earlier area reconnaissance with a committed tank/infantry assault along his weakened company's MLR, the Fallschirmjager captain moves forward to better control indirect fires.

Below Center and Right:

From their positions in the farmstead straddling the crossroads, German observers maintain eyes on the leading elements of the enemy advance. The appearance of American armor and light mortar rounds impacting near his OP persuades the lieutenant to peel back his forward fireteams. Having stalled the progress of the leading US squads, the paratroopers reconfigure their positions among the hedges from an "L" to a "U" in an attempt to avoid direct tank fire and draw the bloodied Americans deeper into their killzone.

11883557654_6cdfc98eff_o.png

Below Top:

Moving to exploit the breach created by the combat engineers and cover their advance, the crew of the M4A3 reverse out of their overwatch position and fire two white phosphorus rounds into suspected German positions to the front of 2nd Platoon's two lead squads.

Below Middle:

Having gone to ground while enduring the steady volume of automatic weapon and mortar fire that initiated the German ambush, the rear most fireteams of the hard-pressed infantry squads are bolstered by the sight of the M4A3 maneuvering through their position and set about asserting fire superiority.

Below Bottom:

The forward fireteams of 2nd Platoon suffer 5 WIA, including the corporal leading the moderately experienced 1st Squad, before their armor support can position itself to lay effective suppressing fire on the last known German positions and help them break contact.

Below Top:

Attempting to disrupt the Germans ability to coordinate a sustained defense of the crossroads, Baker Company's mortar teams continue dropping their 60mm rounds at the direction of 2nd Platoon's lieutenant. In these two images, a Fallschirmjager assistant machinegunner catches several fragments from a detonating round and drops to the ground.

Below Bottom:

While the bocage dissecting the battlearea frustrates the ability to observe the fall of shot, the US firemission nevertheless achieves marginal effect on target by temporarily interdicting the defenders movement, lightly wounding several paratroopers and forcing the German motor transport units to withdraw further to the rear.

11883402163_dc3a5c3cf2_o.png

Below Top:

In an audacious bid to roll up the German positions within the farmstead and mitigate the need to cross open ground in the face of automatic weapons fire, the veteran sargeant of 2nd Platoon's 3rd Squad leads his experienced GIs in a wide flanking action with the support of the attached M4A1.

Below Middle:

3rd Squad's view of the farmstead prior to their lefthook. The Fallschirmjager MLR lies behind the far hedgeline extending behind the structures while 1st and 2nd squads' ordeal continues to unfold beyond the trees on the extreme right.

Below Bottom:

Using the hedgelines to conceal their movement, 3rd Squad pushes wide of the suspected German positions and crosses the paved lane leading to the Platoon's crossroads objective. Assuming they are under observation, the seasoned squad executes a hard right turn and begins aggressively bounding toward the farmstead with the M4A1 on overwatch.

11883557144_0f4078781e_o.png

Below Top:

The German paratroopers continue to leverage their short lines of communication and well sited OPs to anticipate the Americans actions and reposition their reduced squads and support teams for maximum affect. In these images, a Fallschirmjager squad displaces to consolidate their platoon's line and bring their GPMGs to bear on the unit's exposed flank.

Below Bottom:

Reacting to the imminent pressure of the US combined arms assault, the Panzerjager Abteilung detaches a pair of tank destroyers into the Fallschirmjagers' platoon area. Having received only a cursory OPORD and a scant ammunition loadout, the Marder IIIMs take up hasty positions in order to establish communications with the paratrooper platoon and appraise potential fields of fire.
