• Fahrzeug Profile 116: Die Panzertruppen des Deutschen Heeres 1

    Since the Russian invasion of neighboring Ukraine on February 24, 2022, the importance of armored combat troops has once again become the focus of public attention. Within the Bundeswehr, the terms armored troops and armored troops are used when referring to armored combat troops. What initially differs by just one letter is, however, much more:
    While the armored troops with their main weapon system, the Leopard 2 main battle tank mounted in various configurations, can be highly mobile and have a long-range effect against armored enemy forces, the armored troops also include the armored infantrymen, who are equipped with the Marder infantry fighting vehicle or the Puma infantry fighting vehicle. The Panzergrenadiers work both mounted in the front and rear combat areas of their armored personnel carriers and as a rifle squad dismounted from the vehicle with small arms and anti-tank weapons.
    The main principles of armored troops in operation are, above all, their high dynamics and speed, which they can use, for example, in attack operations in difficult terrain, but also in open or built-up terrain.
    This issue gives you a current insight into the organization, equipment with weapons and equipment and the training activities of the Panzergrenadier troops with their eleven battalions.
    With 103 pictures.

  • Luftstreitkräfte Profile 19: Mengen, Sycamore, Bunte Vögel

    The history of the German air force (air force – army aviation – naval aviation) has hardly been treated in a comprehensive manner since it was set up in 1956. This new series aims to present the history and development of these separate areas of the German armed forces.
    The focus of the 19th edition is the Bristol Sycamore MK.52, a helicopter from the very beginning. Another extensive topic is the Mengen Air Base – an almost forgotten air force location. Further articles are dedicated to the naval aviation training group – learning, where others go on vacation and SCHINDERHANNES in the Air Force.
    On the NVA side, the liaison squadron 14 Strausberg – the box kite squadron is dealt with.
