I've asked if they want the flak gun , can't just bring it if it's unwanted , plus it means I have to get there 30 min earlier.

OK guys we have the go ahead to use the flack gun but it will have to be a team effort as its been suggested it can be mobile ,not just as a fixed position weapon , this can only work if we are all prepared to help man it and move it unless we just want to use it as a static piece , any thought's ?

Had a chat with the British squad and we've all decided that it's best off being used as a static piece in your garage. ;)

Realistically it will need the cooperation of five or six people and I've got to say I'm not 100% sure I'm going to be able to make it through the day anyway as I'm still recovering from my knee operation ... It's going to be my first day back at work on this coming Sunday so I'm not fully match fit as it were , if we want to it could just be used for defence of our base .

Okay, if it takes away so many men from the field, then it can be static at Aachen, it will have plenty to do, as the Allies can only cross by the 3 bridges, and they will be mined and obstacles in the way to make entering Aachen difficult. So the flak can be moved around where it is needed most.
To rest your knee please take time out at our Base a bit of R and R.
