Campaign #42: Allied Victory

Doc, Cornered Rat: " Congratulations Allied forces of Battleground Europe on your sterling victory in Campaign 42! I was present fighting with your erstwile opponents the Axis on Sunday evening, in several absolutely awesome battles in a couple of towns that turned out to be under the new "no mans land" situation (no brigade in town, opposing brigades in towns each side of the battle) and it was fun!We'll be resetting the host into intermission mode later today (Monday Feb.18th) which will mean the afternoon (CST) or evening if you're using GMT for your timezone referance. We expect to reset the host for Campaign #43 on Wednesday the 20th of February, probably around noon or the early afternoon CST time. GMT is 8 hours ahead of us here for those that use GMT to referance such things.This will be a straight no special rules or set-up style intermission with lot's of gear available for people to run around having some fun without worrying too much about supply. Not unlimited, but abundant would be how best to describe it."


Awards to 75 Squadron

(February 1st - Groupe de Bombardement 6/GB 18)
(AHC) Commander Keitel66, CO, Groupe de Bombardement 6/GB 18, announced: " It is my esteemed pleasure to prevent three awards to a group of individuals who I feel are more of deserving of such recognition. Below are two separate posts I made in the allied high command about these awards, each in its own separate post.
The awards have been approved by CE an Miestrox, and so are authorized for wear.

The Citations:
As high command officers, each one of us is essentially tasked with two primary missions:
1) Ensuring successful deployment and utilization of combat forces across the map - be they air, ground or navy - and ensuring the successful execution of Attack Orders and Defend orders, be they simple softcaps or taxing multi-ab TOWN caps with only a single link.
2) Providing a fun and rewarding experience for the allied playerbase, who we ultimately answer to... for if we cannot follow these two general directives then we have failed and our allies will not follow us.
The most important factor related to both of these tasks is the use of the air force. In real life, air power has proven a tool which significantly contributes to the success of an armed force (or the failure of an ENEMY armed force) in completing their objective, including winnin all-out wars. This was clearly witnessed in the Second World War, the American Korean conflict, and the allied engagement in the Persian Gulf war in 1991.
Properly making use of an air power, such that it becomes the dominant force on the battlefield, is a vital boost to the morale of friendly forces on the ground - and can REALLY contribute to the success of ground troops in locating and destroying the enemy and securing vital territory. However, such execution must be lead by well-trained, motivated, and experienced forces that are capable of leading men into battle and confident of their own and their airmens' experience and mettle. God bless those that fly and die! S!
This application of air power, as you all know, is NOT strictly limited to real life military applications. Time and again air superiority has proven to be the linch pin behind many successful axis and allied combat operations, and there are really only a very select few individuals and organizations dedicated to repeated, mass air operations that become a major reason why our own operations have been successful.
Mass fighter sweeps... carpet bombing... RDP runs.. factory patrol... sometimes these are thankless tasks, sometimes there aren't enough to participate. But time and again there are a few individuals who throw their throttle to max and lift on no matter the challenge.
There are exactly two individuals who - in my most honest opinion - fulfill all of the above outlined qualities: lloyd403 and divided, both of 75 squadron.
To summarize... for their continued, dedicated service to the virtual allied armies and against the axis armed forces, no matter the circumstance, I hereby recommend and absolutely feel that both lloyd403 and divided are more than deserving of the Combat Hero Recognition, Highest Class medal. I feel we would be doing these fine individuals a disservice by NOT recognizing their efforts. I look forward to their gun cam footage!
Furthermore, I hereby request that 75 Squadron be granted the
Commander in Chief's Unit Commendation.

Artturi recieves award

(February 1st - Oberkommando das Heer)
(OKH) Fiambre: " This weekend we had a very hard fight to close some allied brigades. The most hard job was upon the 16ID which was pretty empty and had to fight against superior forces. Turnhout, Geel, Paal and Hasselt were under heavy pressure. I joined the battle at geel and move directly to Bunker. there was Artturi. He stood there with me for long. After some outside action, the danger moved to Turnhout, as HQ was in risk. I spawned there and moved to cover the spawnable.. found Artturi there again. Helped him for a time and then I moved to some other critical positions, noticing artturi was defending successfully that depot for at least 1 hour.After thar Geel was badly hot again with a depleted brigade again, and when i moved there with turnhout safe.... I found artturi at Bunker, with his gun ready to kill any enemy entering. Wow. He defend that again for long, till new brigade was in, and the main allied force was enclosed.Once geel was secure again, Turnhout again was in danger with several depots taken and no strong defense up... I moves fast and quickly there, but not the first one! There was a guy called Arthur... uff at first i thought Artturi was also there, but when i told to him, he said "ah, no im not Artturi.. im Arthur.... t he second account of Artturi" :-DDDD For his outstanding defense of critical depots and bunkers on Jan 27, Artturi is rewarded with the Merit Star for outstanding effort during this time. Please welcome him in congrats!"
Announced by Kommandeur GreatOne, Oberbefehlshaber der 12. Armee.
