Will we be briefed on objectives on the day or will we be notified in advance?

You'd be better off asking in the Fallschirmjager section of the forum. Not everyone reads the game threads (e.g. If they aren't going).

The strum model is 3rd pattern smock. It is not too bad. They are usually quite baggy if that helps.

Hello all,

Coming to operation mist as a German field medic, but my belt and buckle so far consist of a Luger pouch. That's it. I've got everything else I need, so what else should I wear round the belt keep it authentic and accurate?

Also I've an epic militaria mp40 steel helmet in plain gray. With what shall I paint white and red on it? AND, what medic pattern do you think is best, such as whole helmet white with one large Red Cross the center being on top the helmet; or just two circles on either side with red crosses in?

Many thanks, in advance

Kieren

See http://www.mp44.nl/equipment.htm for a typical Sanitäter belt order. Front line medics didn't typically wear marked helmets or bibs, as it made them an easy target especially on the Russian front.

Here's some photos of me at some games...

Hi all, I am bringing along my AGM MP40 but it stopped working sometime ago. The battery is seemingly working but I suspect there is a loose wire inside the gun itself.

Is there any chance someone with the technical know-how could have a look at it on the morning before battle commences? I will be sure to charge the battery up of course.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated .

Thanks all!

Chris

I reckon there will be quite a few people who can get it going on the day, I always bring tools and spares with me anyway.
So there's every chance to resurrect the Mp40

Hi try a bigger or at least different battery,some cheap batteries go dead after a few charges,get a good one from the component shop.
Just switching to fully auto can reset your trigger sometimes ,as there is a dead spot sometimes when using semi auto.
Connect a multimeter set to continuity to the 2 pins in the plug that the battery normaly connects to,pull the trigger to see if you get a circuit connection.
Mini tamiya connectors are the worst for loose connection ,try bending and wiggling the 2 halfs of the plug while pulling the trigger.
Take of the motor from the gearbox and see if it will run on its own with no load,Pop your anti reversal latch,see youtube if you don't know what that is.
Some times cheaper motors can't turn over when the gearbox stops with the piston fully back and the spring fully compressed.
If all is ok with the above then you will have to look inside the gearbox for a problem.
Hope this helps.

Would it be possible for me to record game with a go pro on the helmet or is that just going to kill it for everyone ? (PS: No lights flashing ect on camera).
Just thought it would be nice to show others what they are missing out on.

Some people in the past have attached it to the helmet and scrimmed it up so just the lens is showing which doesn`t detract from the WW2 look or I saw a brit put it inside a Shell dressing attached to their webbing.
