“I would rather he had given me one more division” — Field Marshall Erwin Rommel
This past month, the Allies cracked open a 50 gallon drum of military morale, and passed that stuff around for War 118 in Heroes and Generals. It was definitely a healthly boost and it’s fair to say the Allied Airborne Army had a roll in helping. Along with the Wojsko Polskie, Deutsche US Division and the Devil’s Brigade – the Allies attacked the Axis from the ground, land and especially the air. It was a good month for grinding up new characters in anticipation for the General’s Roll in the Rommel Build. And just when the Allies were three towns away from capturing Berlin… they release the Rommel Build. Bittersweet.
The Rommel build expands the ranks and made significant improvements to the strategic gameplay. Generals and other commanding officers are now characters that equip Assault Teams. They’ve added paratrooper specific weapons which are the German Fallschirmjagergewehr 42 and the American M1 Carbine. The Campagin map has 15 important cities marked with a star symbol. These are the strategically important cities that determine the winner of the war. Check out the video log or visit Heroes and Generals for more on Rommel.
Over all, it has been a great month in the Airborne community! Our ranks continue to swell at an impressive rate. We enlisted 20 new members in August and our Basic Training Class for September looks to be a well rounded group and we are excited to game with them.

Rather than writing up a report, how about we just show you what we were up too in August. The camera was rolling for the Allies, and the Allied Airborne Army members made their fair share of videos. Heroes and Generals started a new devstream, Schilli from the DUSD made Axis fighter pilots sh!t themselves and BluJester shows us why fighting along side the AAA allows him to be free as a bird.
|Fragmovie 3 – Divishua|| Lightning Strike! – Schilli
Easily one of the most feared gamers in H&G, our comrade and Deutschland US Division’s own Schilli shows off his fighter skills with the aid of some seriously sorry, desperately fleeing Luftwaffe pilots.
|Capture of Wuppertal – Ashkenton|| Capture of Cuxhaven – BluJester
Free Bird!!! When chain blocking becomes and issue, you need a chain block buster! BluJester found that his Paratroopers did the job nicely. Together with the AAA, the Allies stormed Cuxhaven for about 8 minutes of pure pleasure.

The passing of BlackViper34, our Commanding Officer this summer to cancer leaves many of us at the Airborne with heavy hearts. Before he passed, Viper and his family set up the George Spiros Jr. Memorial Hockey Scholarship as a non profit organization designed to help young aspiring hockey players that can’t otherwise afford to play
We encourage you to donate as a way to help celebrate his life.
