Hello everyone,

 

We are the newly formed Fallschirmjäger-Regiment 2. Our primary endeavor is to accurately portray the unit in the late war period, maintaining a historically accurate yet equally entertaining atmosphere. We are looking for those who share these pursuits, and we welcome anyone who is interested. However, We don't exclusively cater to those looking for a "realistic" experience. We also welcome those who are eager for teamwork, and unit cohesion. So once again we invite anyone craving for a unique historical and team based gaming experience to contact us.

 

I may be contacted on the forums or via steam. My steam profile is The_Squid.

 

We look forward to your contact and thank you for your interest.

 

Very respectfully,

 

Ackerman

In January 1943 the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht decided to raise a second elite
parachute division. The formation would include the veteran 2nd Parachute Regiment, recently detached from
the 1st Parachute division. The division would also incorporate troops from the remnants of several other airborne
units that had suffered heavy losses in recent battles.
 They would go on to endure, persevere,
and triumph over some of the most harrowing campaigns of World War II. They were
Ramcke's Own!

The Fallschirmjäger Rgt. 2 is a realism unit for the game Darkest Hour '44, a mod for Red Orchestra. It was founded by Squid, a realism veteran of the 1st Rangers and the 506th PIR, and a currently serving member of the U.S. Military. Our primary endeavor is to accurately portray the Fallschirmjäger in the late war period, maintaining a historically accurate yet equally entertaining atmosphere. We are looking for those who share these pursuits, and we welcome anyone who is interested. However, we don't exclusively cater to those looking for a "realistic" experience. We also welcome those who are eager for teamwork, and unit cohesion. So once again we invite anyone craving for a unique historical and team based gaming experience to apply today!

Fallschirmjäger Rgt. 2 was established as part of the 7. Flieger Division during the German military build-up of the 1930s. This formation would later be re-designated as 1. Fallschirmjäger Division. Fallschirmjäger Rgt. 2 was first mobilized in the invasion of Poland where it was tasked to capture Polish airfields. The following year, the regiment was transferred to the Western Front and participated in the invasion of Holland as part of one of the largest airborne operations in the Second World War. In 1941, the regiment was assembled to take part in the airborne invasion of Crete. Despite suffering from heavy casualties the fallschirmjäger successfully captured the island in just twelve days. Throughout the remainder of the war, the regiment saw combat on all-fronts: Ost Front (1941-1942), Africa (1942-1943), Italy (1943-1944), and the Western Front (1944) until it was finally annihilated at the Ruhr Pocket (1945). 

Their superior performance in combat and their unrelenting commitment to their oath and country earned the admiration and respect of both friend and foe. Field Marshal Harold Alexander remarked, “The tenacity of these German paratroopers is quite remarkable. I doubt that there are any other troops in the world who could have stood up to it and then gone on fighting with the ferocity they have." For their tenacity, they were nicknamed “Grüne Teufel” (Green Devils). Indeed it is decreed in fallschirmjäger first commandment: 



You are the chosen ones of the German Army. You will seek combat and train yourselves to endure any manner of test. To you, the battle shall be fulfillment.
