Well, no, the usual Kraut does not have a heating system with him.Gollevainen said:Thanks, thats very informative...
Individual tents...how about in winter? Do they expect all sleep without any sort of heating? We had this small sectiontent which barely accomodated the entire crew (8) and small stove to heat it...It actually managed to keep the heat inside so in -20 degree and bellow we theoretically managed just fine...
We never used direct fire mode with the 155K98 becouse there was no optical sights assiged to the gun. But we did it with D-30s. We had mixed results, when firing with the normal gunsight (indirect firesight) we hardly hit anything exspecially when shooting with small charges. But when switching to special anti-tank sight and firing full charges, it was amaizingly accurate...Tough our instructors told us that if we see a tank, we shouldn't vaste time for loading, just run like hell
Guess some armies never learn from russian winter experiences.
Propably another reason why Germans like Tanks, they are heated while their Tents arent
If we meet a Tank we are told to make use of that reverse gear and quickly dissapear behind the next hilltop.
If we stumble upon an enemy anti air/ other Artillery we could use it, as were still faster than these guys (at least were told so), chances are that they mistake us for a Leo anyway^^.
