Oberstleutnant Dinker wins top trucker trophy

Campaign 53 ended with an Axis victory, the british and french down to a handful of cities on the western coast of France and with the british islands intact, the Axis kept trying for Deal to gain a foothold but could not manage it. The last Junker for England ended up with no wings over the shores of deal while half the load of fallschirmsjagers managed to capture townhall but nothing more. At the and of the day thou OKA could see that their forces managed an overwhelming victory and preperations for the next campaign are underway during the following two days vacation on the shores of the english channel. Read the official announcement.

One of the cornerstones of the campaign is always the trucker. This campaign Oberstleutnant Dinker, 3rd Panzergruppe, 2. Panzerdivision managed 515 sorties with 140 returned to base and a staggering 5855 minutes on mission, placing him #9 of the total time spent on the battlefield (1590 sorties). He used countless SdKfz 7 and opels to ferry troops and equiptment to the front and for that, we salute him and all who spent time providing this service to the troops!

In total Campaign 53 saw 1,427,293 sorties, 801,844 kills and 32,108 captures.

Report from a paratrooper

Brigadier Gen. Bluekill:

I was commanding paratrooper operations in the south,hoping to cause some pain to the axis forces and draw some forces away.Thanks to Sircuddles for his scary yet successful drops,we had taken Roye behind enemy lines,and where now working on bouthir *or whatever the town is* im hoiding in bouthier on the church watching for enemy paras,and i hear a opel!So the opel drives into the church,and i run down and shoot the driver three times,then throw a grenade at it.It turns out a EI was riding the opel,and he jumped out right onto my grenade.After that odd experiance,i go back to the church atching for enemy paratroopers,and got back to commanding the assaults.(btw,thanks to Jeremy,my 2nd in command for that battle,and sircuddles for flying those paratroopers,haha for stating the obvious every to seconds,and finally for pilbrow for dieing even when there was no enemies around,everytime.
Started Jul 23, 2009 in a British Airborne Rifle from Amiens. Ended with 2 kills and 0 captures.

The fight for St. Truiden

Unterleutnant Devilmutt reported from the battle of St. Truiden: " The call came out for sappers on the St.Truiden - Hasselt FB as Hasselt was under allied attack. I reported for duty to find only 3 sappers in the supply. I'm sorry that I do not recall the squad leader's name at the time of this report. The leader and I went for the inf bunker and got 8 charges on it. A third squaddie hit the veh and took it down. I did not understand at the time why the fb was still up. As we were returning to the opel for supplies we came under Allied infantry fire. My squad leader and other member were killed.

I laid low for awhile killing one infantryman that came close to me. I was out of charges and a Panhard destroyed our opel. I thought what do I do...stay and harras ATG's and Laffy's leaving the FB? A new squaddie Pariah2x pm'ed me asking if the fb was clear. He was a sniper, as I told him of the situation he went above and beyond driving an opel into the enemy FB to supply me. I got a charge on the inf and came under enemy infantry fire. As I took cover pariah2x was killed. I made a break for the supply stockpile as Pentamon informed me that it had to be destroyed via pm. Pentamon, this is a guy who does not know me and goes out of his way to give me the 411 on the situation, Salute to you sir.
While under fire I was able to get 2 charges on the stockpile and my last charge on the Vehicle Tent. Boom went the Allied FB. As a closing present I took down one of the Allied machine gunners before I RTB'd.
