Eastern Front / Re: WWII Q&A thread: Ask us anything!

I see, thanks for the Ansver! :>

But those proper volksturm units that fought on the western front. Not the reinforcement one like you mention , are they geared like the typical volksturm unit on the eastern front?

 I mean like a big mix up
of military uniforms and many of them even in civilian clothing with the volksturm armbands and old and captured guns? :>

Most of the western alert units in 1945 were Volkssturm units.
I had to search for a list but basing on books like "Der gro├če Kessel" (Willi Mues), "Tiger im Schlamm" (Otto Carius), "Das letzte Kriegsjahr im Westen: Die Geschichte der 116. Panzer-Division" (Heinz G. Guderian Jr.) and many other books most of the western Volkssturm units were used at the western front. Units like the 116. PzDiv were reinforced by local Volkssturm units during the Ruhr pocket campaign.

Keep in mind that the first wave of the Volkssturm wasnt used in Volkssturmunits. Most parts of the first Volkssturm wave were used to form and reinforce the new formed Volksgrenadier-Divisions.

I have been checking around but dont seem to find any info but..

The volksturm? Did they fight on the western front as well? Most of the time when you read/see them they are on the eastern front ( understandable ;P)

But they were created as early as October 1944 soo? :> Did they get sent there too?

You are using a very old version of Eastern Front. One that we no longer support. This was the login for the chat client we once had, which was never a requirement to launch the game. Please get yourself a copy of Company of Heroes and EF on Steam.

With parachutists, you can also combine gliders. The Soviet Union conducted more glider flights than the United States and Britain.
Main application:
- delivery of fuel and ammunition to the front line and partisans.
- delivery of subversive groups to partisans.
- return of the wounded and children.

paratroopers - mortar team train  come out from G-11 glider


The glider KC-20 holds 20 soldiers, not a single KC-20 airframe has been lost for the entire war.


The IL-4 bomber with a 45-mm gun pulls G-11 glider.

Red Army Suggestions / Soviet paratroopers?
« Last post by Crecer13 on March 30, 2018, 06:00:41 PM »
During the Great Patriotic War, Soviet paratroopers made about 30 tactical parachute operations (without taking into account a lot of diversion jumps). During the Soviet-Japanese war more than 20 tactical operations. And I'm very upset that most games about World War II ignore Soviet paratroopers.
Some features of Soviet paratroopers:
- very high professionalism and the level of training of soldiers. The main weapons: SVT-40 and PPSh-41 / PPS-43. The reports of the German High Command stated: Soviet paratroopers as hunters - very accurate and save ammo.
- A great experience of jumping with a parachute at any time of the day and in any weather. Parachutists performed about 15-20 training jumps a year, soldiers with PTRS and crews of 45-mm guns about 10 jumps per year.
- the possibility of parachute and under the fuselage landing of 45-mm anti-tank and 76-mm mountain or regimental cannon.
- possibility of fuselage transport of light tanks t-37/38.
