  1. Was just playing hearts of iron 3 today. I never realized that the counters were standardized.

  2. I'd love to see a modern German Army composition video.

  3. Nice video man! Sehr gut!

  4. I have some interesting questions for you.

    So did German infantry use anti tank rifles in 1939? If so, how many and how were they distributed in the units?

    Also were the reserve divisions of western front (1939) equipped with 36 105mm and 12 150mm howitzers?
    I have once read that Germany had about 2000 150 mm howitzers at the start of the war. If Germany had just over 100 divisions at the start that works out at less than 1200 150 mm howitzers (armoured divisions had 8 of such howitzers if I can remember correctly). So is the 2000 figure wrong or did Germany have extra stocks/extra guns at corps level?

  12. Is Panzergrenadier Div considered as motorized infantry division or Panzer div with infantry div combined?

  13. question: are the 15cm howitzers in the artillery unit SiG 33? or did they just use anything of that calibre?
