I may be able to persuade Che to lend his Knockensack and helm if someone wants to join the FJ?

Helm is 59 ish, Knockensack 42-44 chest

I have a spare buckle, so you're in.

If Seidler is going as WfSS then that would make up a full 10-man Gruppe :good:

Hi FJ, can you all confirm your weapon of choice please, so we can think about who will be in the assault team, and who will be in the gun team.

Stg44 for me.

As an alternative I will be taking a rifle.

I will be using the power of irony to baffle the Yanks before finishing them off with my rapier wit

- and I mean proper irony, not the Alanis Morissette type.

Alternatively I will be taking a stupidly heavy replica MG42

I'll be using my boundless charm to get up close to them and smother them with endless generosity. Mostly offerings of free food that being American they will be unable to refuse and under the weight of which will eventually collapse and have a coronary.

Alternatively a K98 seems the best choice as an MG assistant but I'll bring my MP44 along just in case. I'd like to use my Tanaka now I've got it running well again but doesn't look like good tanaka country so I may go 330fps springer. The trouble is my springer I still haven't fixed up after Dragoon when I lost the end of the outer barrel! :slap: Whatever I decide as MG assist its pretty obvious what group I fall into.

im taking a tanaka k98 rich, it may not get much use, again im an mg assistant, but for those really pesky long range shots, it would be nice to have one in the arsenal :good:
