    German pioneer company/squad TOE organization

    I stumbled on this link the other day. It doesn't provide anything about pioneers, but gives a wealth of info about company, platoon, squad, and equipment organizations for many unit types of most WW2 nations. https://www.quartermastersection.com/german/

    Red Army Shtraftbat TOE

    Hello: I've been websurfing again & stumbled upon this ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shtrafbat .. Soviet "Penal troops." So these would probably be represented by 426 conscripts (though I could be wrong?). However, the search for any kind of TOE below the company level is coming up...

    German pioneer company/squad TOE organization

    Several of those Kstns that I read through the other day were panzer/motorized. I noticed that they also listed "drivers" and vehicles as part of the inherent squad/truppe (a halftrack or truck, in addition to the extra LMG). Seems to me, the extra LMG was probably vehicle mounted (presumably)...

    German pioneer company/squad TOE organization

    I was web surfing for the hell of it and came across this ... https://www.feldgrau.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17186 ... I've always been under the impression that German Pioneers were SMG heavy (aka. the 838 squad, similar to Russian SMG squads). But, according to the referenced post (not sure...

    Stars in shadow new 4x strategy game

    Hello fellow gamers: I recently purchased this 4x space strategy game (similar to masters of orion). It's been out a little less than a year & I love it!

    History Channel's The World Wars

    I noticed some serious errors: they noted the size of the German army invading france in '40 as 8 million, really??? I seem to remember 1.8 million (though I cannot remember the source from among all the WW2 books I've read over my lifetime). Also, they noted the reason for Japan invading the...

    What boardgames have you played recently?

    I don't have a problem with bugs generally, they have an important place in the environment ... I just hate when bugs feel that their environment has now become the house (my environment). ... I have this one horrendous story about a roach, about 8 years ago. I usually keep a glass of sprite or...

    I've been playing Dominions 3 on my spare time, a very good indie fantasy strategy game (conquer provinces with mideaval-era armies to get more money, more resources, more gemstones which are used for magic), have to conduct research to unlock more powerful spells for your mages (you can kind of...

    Star Trek 2: Into the Darkness :thumup:

    They probably wanted to start from a blank slate. I mean, there are entire star trek cannons where virtually every incident involving star trek has been mapped out already in time-line. I picked up one of the star trek encyclopedias at a discount some years back. An entirely new timeline means...
