Skirmish at Philipville

(Apr 28, 2010) Major Joeusaf, XXO, 3. Kampfgruppe, 33. Infanteridivisionen: " I took OIC of 2 Panzer 1 Kampfgruppe out of Givet and set up a UMS about 1 KM out of Phillipville. I then spawned as a riflemen and raced towards the town to Help Onetin. Onetin and I then ran into the Army Base and killed the 2 AI MGs and came into the bunker, which was clear. We then defended the bunker, I killed 4 LMGs as he tried to take back the bunker. The radios were not up in time so we weren't able to capture it before I was killed by an LMG who also died. I then spawned at the Phillipville-Givet Depot and continued to fight there but we were not able to hold it and the town was back in Allied Hands."


Paras lead the way

Lieutenant Behemoth, 101st reported: " We held the Geel-Grobbendonk Cp, The attack on Geel was contested for over an hour. Myself and other members of 101st Airbourne decided to drop on town. Trevor8 flew us in a low alt drop on Geel-Paal Cp (spawnable) in town. After the jump I saw that the Geel-Paal Cp was destroyed, so I guided myself and landed in the second floor. I cleared the building then notice an EI hiding in bushes to the south so I opened fire with my SMG. After I killed him I proceeded to capture the depot. After capture I remembered that I saw two ei on the roof of the building next to me so I threw two grenades in their direction. I guarded cp till squaddies spawned in at Geel-Paal Depot then started heading north. I ran into a few individual EIs and killed them with ease. I was shot by rifle heading into the Geel-Mol Cp. Within 10-15 mins we had flooded and captured the town."
Started Apr 04, 2010 in a British Airborne SMG from Brussels. Ended with 5 kills and 1 capture.


Brawl at Notre Dame

Major Asp007, French Army, reported on march 9th: " After sniping an opel driver making his way to the abby, I infiltrated the area shortly after it was lost. I watched as Lt Vonmodel made his wat to one church tower with his LMG waiting to fire off on my allied companions. I snuck my way up the tower and took him out then proceeded to make my way back to my hiding spot.
I heard foot steps of Maj Christianr who undoubtedly had been reported to of my presence nearby. As he came around the corner, I fired without raising my scope to save precious seconds left of my life. Sucessful hit in bringing him down.

I moved my position as I knew they were looking for me for certain now. Again, footsteps in the building that was my refuge. This time it was a courageous sapper, QM Sgt Darkton. Initially I missed with my first two shots and he set a satchel charge on teh wall in hopes that I wouldn't move far. He was unsuccessful in that attempt.
He came charging after me with knife drawn so I drew my knife and we rushed towards each other. We each got one stab on each other the first pass and then as my eyes were going dark from the blood, he landed the final blow on an honorable fight to the death
Started Mar 09, 2010 in a French Sniper from Montfaucon. Ended with 3 kills and 0 captures.


50 mm halts advance

(February 22nd) Sgt. Major Shane21 reported: " After spawning in, I decided to head west with my 50mm atg, and located a good position - on the east side of the river, west of Huy, by the train track, which had fairly good protection and concealment. Almost instantly, there were several 88mm atg, ht's and other vehicles trying to setup and gain a stable position from which to camp Huy.

I was wounded half way through the mission, however continued to fire and kill axis, my commander was killed, however, I managed to continue to fire and mark axis. I was posted as MIA, having killed 13 axis, and wounded several more."
Started Feb 22, 2010 in a 57mm M1 from Huy. Ended with 13 kills and 0 captures.


Mortar barrage madness

Colour Sergeant Alfaracer reported: " The attack on Chimay was going well, we had driven tanks to the west hill and had held the position for a while. Stugs and 88s soon spawned and when my H39 got toasted I decided to respawn as a mortar (my new favourite weapon).
Upon spawning I was delighted to find the UMS only 500m from town. I found myself a decent bush behind a small ridge to hide myself from town and began firing into the AB. After firing my ten rounds of HE I was then waiting for resupply from the truck so progess at first was slow.
As the attack gained pace a few rifles resupplied me as they ran past which greatly increased my rate of fire, it also drew attention to the UMS though as more people began spawning. More mortars joined me and we had a good 3 man team pouring death into the AB.
This seemed to draw some attention though and we soon had a 232 flanking our position. When the truck was destroyed we fled from the hail of mg fire. I was the only one who managed to survive, and although slighlty injured made my way to another truck which began to resupply me.

Once again after a time I was joined by yet more mortarman and this time 2 rifles who were prepared to resupply us, a big thanks to dubane and snowy for that. A sapper made his way for our position but I pulled out my rifle and killed him first shot.
Our hellish barrage forced the LW to get invovled. After several near misses a 250kg bomb landed near the truck and blew it to pieces. Once again I survived and after firing the rest of my ammo made my way into town. We were starting to take control of the town and after finding myself a good building overlooking the AB I sniped a few more infantry untill the town was ours.
I was over the moon to find out later I had damaged 111 units and killed 25 outright, including 10 bofors, 3 88s, many 37mm and even a panzer 2C."
Started Jan 14, 2010 in a Light Mortarman from Chimay. Ended with 25 kills and 0 captures.

Fire from below

Hauptman Bagir reported: " Light bomber Bristol Blenheim Mk. IV was killed from LMG at the defendind Jodoigne-Wavre FB. At this moment I take duty on this FB alone, so nobody else can take part in this kill.

Aclinal low-flying (altitude was about 30-60 m) aircraft was pelted from light machine gun.
First clip I began spend on him when he was about 150-200 m from me. Then I quickly reload LMG and half of the second clip be able to sock to his potbelly and left engine. His engine send out grey smoke, and after 100-200 m from FB plane crash down to the ground."
Started Jan 09, 2010 in a German LMG from Jodoigne. Ended with 1 kill and 0 captures.


Guns of Menen

QM Sergeant Lowe reported on january 3rd: " Following the orders of the OC 11th Hussars, M0rdsith, I moved a M1 ATG north of the town of Menen from the Roulers depot. Unsure whether I would be facing infantry or armour I moved up the road, keeping to the hedgeline.
Several times I stopped to face over to the East of the North-South road as I heard the tracks of Panzers, however I did not spot any vehicles. Continuing to move along the road, I spotted a Panzer tank to the North on the roadway. Quickly I deployed and sent several roads his way, but he manouvered quickly out of my Line of Sight by moving out to the East. I moved North until I was almost a kilometer North of Menen & deployed facing West.
My first kill came when an Opel, hauling a PAK gun came careering down the West flank from the Forward Base. My first three shots missed, and I knew he would soon be out of my guns traverse arc, so I shifted the gun further and opened fire with a HE shell. Thinking I had missed, I was about to prepare to move on in case they came to hunt me down, when the Opel exploded & the ATG tried to set up to aim at my position. I managed to silence the PAK gun, as a 232 also came speeding down the Western flank. A single hit from a HE shell on its rear made it explode, sending its smoking hulk rolling amongst the hedges.
Turning North, I moved further up the bushline by a hundred meters and set myself up once again as a few tanks came down the flank at intervals. The first took a shell to its turret, sparks showering the sky, whilst the second shell blew off its tracks, sending it spinning into trees. The next tank was upon the roadway, and took three shots to disable it.
A few moments later an Opel came down the roadway. Having set up, I waited a few moments for it to enter the guns sights and at 50m I blew it apart with a HE shell. The wreck dragged its cargo of a PAK gun into the hedgeline, and I quickly moved to place several shells into its crew & the gun itself.
Running low on ammo, I retreated further amongst the bushes and put out a request for ammunition, which was answered by Dabinsky in a Laffly truck. Once I had rearmed from him, I moved to cover the West flank again as a few tanks moved south from the FB.
For the next while I continued to put tanks & opels out of action, until another 232 took shells to its turret that did not kill its gunner, and managed to shoot my Observer.
Unperturbed I stayed at my position, manning the gun, and finally made the 232 a wreck.
Unfortunatly another Panzer appeared out to my West and whilst I dealt with his gunner with a few aimed shots, his hullgunner opened fire at me and I abandoned the gun."

Started Jan 03, 2010 in a 57mm M1 from Menen. Ended with 13 kills and 0 captures.
