  1. Sincere wishes on a quick and easy recovery.
  2. 12 -- 81mm mortars sounds like alot in a battalion?
  3. Learn something new every day! Did the British or French intelligence services obtain any information on the Me 109 from Switzerland? I would presume they obtains some information about it during the Spanish Civil War?
  4. A quote from the greatest President of the 20th century. "Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.” Also, he knew the truth about the left when this great piece of oratory was written. http://cdn.constitutionreader.com/files/pdf/constitution/ch123.pdf
  5. Did Germany export any other large armaments before the war?
  6. JasonJ, as far as you know, did Japan have any plans in case N.A.T.O. and the Warsaw Pact went at it?
  7. A little off topic, but I think I read somewhere that Barbarossa could not have started any earlier than it did do to weather conditions. Is that true?
  8. In real life, did Germany export 109's?
  9. Sounds like British customers are buying what they wish to buy based on what is available. Sounds like Adam Smith to me. Do have a question though, the 105mm tank gun was British designed and built? If so, were any royalties paid out to said British firm(s)?
  10. In Brigadier John Strawson's book "The Battle for North Africa" he has this quote on page 57, "At the Nuremberg Trials, Jodl, Operations Chief of the O.K.W., stated that Germany had lost the war because she had been obliged to divert divisions to the British landing at Greece." Never heard of this before, was it true?
  11. I don't watch t.v. or follow social media. Has this received any/alot of news in the press and on Facebook, Twitter, etc.?
  12. Was the 4.2" mortar ever considered instead of the M3 howitzer for the regimental cannon companies in the U.S. Army?
  13. This leads me to ask, I understand the M3 howitzer was issued to regimental "cannon companies?" So did each infantry regiment have its own half-dozen 105mm howitzers?
  14. Sincerely pray your wife, and you, are doing better now.
