"Nuts!" -- Lt. Gen. Harry W.O. Kinnard
The New Vasilevsky Update has already ran it's course in Heroes and Generals as the community antisipates the release of the Walker Build. The Allied Airborne Army had a strong month of June, but it wasn't without some of the headaches experienced by the H&G community. A lot of battles being started on purpose, massive blocking with just recon and paras, para and recon busting units formed up and the ammount of exploiting that is taking place is unpresidented.
So, we look forward to the next build and hopefully they clean up some of the mess. They plan to have a new version of the factory map, more vehicle and weapon balancing, something to do with scopes. You can always watch to the weekly DevStreams from the developers explaining the newest features.
New Members - Please welcome our newest members to the Allied Airborne Army!
Promotions - Congratulations to all members that made promotion this month.

"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life." -- Winston Churchill
The Allied Airborne Army got back in the saddle with war effort this past month in Heroes and Generals. Many spectacular and victorious battles followed and much ass kicking was given. Teamwork between our Anglophones and Francophones soldiers in our community is at an all time high. It's like a well oiled machine on the battlefield. Our brothers from WP (Wolna Polska) have join us on the battlefield, the Devils Brigade is never far. The amount of hurt we can throw at our enemies is intense and they are starting the feel it. Even with the game having some major issues, many of us have found ways to have fun within our community.
The Heroes and Generals community is really looking forward to a new build. The Vasilevsky Build will introduce an improved melee system so expect an obnoxious amount of 'whacking' in the game. Assault Teams will have a Morale system that will hopefully keep Generals in involved in the game as oppose to just sending their teams everywhere (even made a little Morale Poster). There are a lot of little things the Heroes and Generals' community overall would like to see developed like an improved auto-resolve system and anything to limit the troll blocking on the front line. Let's keep our fingers crossed that the next build keeps the population involved. It would be nice to see Heroes and Generals' community of 5 million really become active in the game.

"I like a man who grins when he fights." -- Winston Churchill
Heroes and Generals in April released the latest build "Utz" which brought along a brand new map called 'Forward Airfield'. The new map represents the small forward airfields built all over Europe during the war. The Utz Build features many other changes, mostly small cosmetic changes. One major game change that came with Utz is extended ranges of Airborne Assault Teams.
The Triple-A kept a low profile in April while we worked on our community, leveling up our characters, and tactically learned the new Forward Airfield map. According to players from all factions, the RTS side of the Utz build is getting frustrating, uneventful and expensive. Although the later part of the month, RETO did lower the cost of Warfunds for many Assault Teams so hopefully it will spark some life back into the RTS side of the game. What RETO really needs to do is make sure players are getting rewarded for good game play and eliminate towns being completely blocked by Airborne and Recons. You would think with the extended range of the Airborne AT, we would be in heaven at the AAA, however para spamming isn't so much our style as actually fighting with Airborne Characters is. Para blocking can be a strategic move, however when you are sending 20 paras out to tie up your enemy's ability to resupply or reinforce towns on the front so that battles are easy for you to overwhelm. It's poor form, and the players that do contribute to this style of game play are usually over compensating for something.
We will continue training our new members and working towards our goal of providing a fun environment for all that join us. We are really looking forward to the next build and love the future of Heroes and Generals which is why every month, our ranks continue to grow.

"Violent attacks everywhere with everything!" -- George S. Patton, Jr.
At the beginning of March, the Soviet faction was introduced with the release of the Timoshenko Build in Heroes and Generals. This introduction produced a three way war and there are some definite growing pains involved with growing a new faction. But, the Soviets are coming a long and have even manage to win a couple wars! Timoshenko not only introduced a three way war, but also three way battles within the war (12vs12vs12). Check out Lieutenant Ashkenton participating in a three-way battle! Talking about videos, Schilli from the DUSD made his 5th Funny Compilation video that we are featuring this month.
March was another month of growth in the Airborne's player base. Our French members have grown significantly over the past month and steadily over the last Year making the Allied Airborne Army the one of the largest French communities in the game. Ce est exact. Une des plus grandes communautés francophones dans le jeu!

"I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly." -- Winston Churchill
The Soviet faction has finally been introduced to Heroes and Generals. Their introduction currently creates a three way war between the United States, Germany and Soviet Russia. How that will pan out in the future when more factions are added is still a guess. Combat action on the Campaign map has seen one of the fairest and most balance months overall with both the Germany and the US trading off War wins. Some may argue different for the Axis, but most of them are trolls and never bothered looking at the overall game statistics. At the moment, the Russian faction needs to get on their feet (better yet, off their feet and into a motorized/mechanized Army). They have a lot of growing up to do as much of their faction is still very new with mostly weak equipment. However, several Allied vets including AAA members have been leading an assistance to help get the faction going and stable.
We've been very busy this past month at the Allied Airborne. We've added 9 new members, and additional 22 more going into Boot Camp for April and many members have received promotions and overall - great month!
Sacrebleu! Look at all the French!!

"You’re never beaten until you admit it." -- General George S. Patton, Jr
It's been an entertaining start of the year for the Allied Airborne Army in Heroes and Generals. The holidays are past us and our numbers are back up to full strength. The Allies did an amazing job this past month, the Axis ran out of tissues and the Timoshenko Build will be release soon which will include the Russian Faction. More on the Russian Faction can be found here on our forum post.
Our French comrades in the Allied Airborne Army stepped up this past month in Wars 180 and 181 fighting off hords of MG-42 attacks as they held possible the least desirable (but critical) sector of the Allied front line. They discouraged the Axis and as shown in Divishua's MG-42 demonstration video, turn the tides on the invading Axis forcing them to find a new sector to fight. And for their efforts, we honor our French Allied Airborne Army members.

Happy New Year!
The Allied Airborne Army is going to be 13 years old this month as we put another year into the books. Happy New Year everyone and thank you for helping to make the Airborne an amazing place for organized gaming. This year has been up and down in both gaming and in our real lives. Tragically we had the passing of BlackViper34, our Commanding Officer leaving many of us at the Airborne with heavy hearts. For the better part of a decade, Viper was the back bone, the leader of this community and we will continue to celebrate him at the AAA. He will be proud to see how much we have grown in just the past year alone.
The Allied Airborne Army, it's Allies in the Deutsche US Division and the Devils Brigade are the back bone of the Allies in Heroes and Generals. Even with the holidays upon us and many players enjoying time with their families, the Allies have managed to win wars, frustrate the Axis and more importantly - do it in style. Take a moment and check out Schilli's newest video! Given the fact H&G is in beta stage, the game can become frustrating - but all we need to do is remember that it's just a game, enjoy it!

Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake." -- Napoleon Bonaparte
If we learned anything this past November, it's that when the Allies organize themselves in Heroes and Generals, they are an unstoppable machine. The Spaatz build in H&G is still the latest build and one of the primary features in Spaatz is the RTS balance. Many Axis don't seem to like it and have been calling 'foul' to RETO for implementing such a change to the game. We know, Allies OP. With the help of communities like the Devils Brigade, DUSD, WP, Bad Lobsters, The Greek Division, and the Portuguese Bastards - that Allies have really become a united faction.
The Allied Airborne Army had a lot to do with the success of the Allies these past couple weeks. A lot of members stepped up dedicating much of their time, efforts and resources to the wars and to the community. Check out SGT.Gr0w's video for the Allied Airborne Army. We've met a lot of new players that have come to join our ranks which is where we begin the Members Report.

"Success is how high you bounce when you hit the bottom." -- Gen. George S. Patton
October turned out to be a rather fun month here at the Airborne. Heroes and Generals released the Spaatz Build which has finally introduced Supply Limitations to the game. Another pleasant surprise is the weapon sway effect which adds a bit of weight to the weapons giving them a more realistic feel. A lot of good elements have finally come to the game making it one of the better builds and your can read more about the changes in the change log. On the flip side, the Axis don't seem to be enjoying the build as much because there is RTS balance and with balance, easy mode is turned off. The Allies on the other hand still fight like they are in a 3:1 deficit with ATs and the outcome has been devastating the Axis. Damn!

"You probably heard we ain't in the prisoner-takin' business; we in the killin' Nazi business. And cousin, business is a-boomin'. " -- Lt. Aldo Raine
September was mostly an upbeat month here at the Allied Airborne Army, but definitely an up and down month for the Allied faction as a whole in Heroes and Generals. Literal up - then down. The Airborne made some solid improvements to it's Basic Training section and how recruits and recruitment is handled. We also changed our TeamSpeak location from Atlanta Georgia to New York (we were having a few minor issues and this move should clear it up). The AAA has grown significantly over the last several months and this just opens the door to better teamwork and more fun which we invite you to become apart of! And it is with our members that we begin the next section of the our report.
