Battle Of Brzeziny Bridge

«Game» The enemy is near… River Warta is now a war zone!

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Erwin sways slightly with the rumbling of the 231. The Feldwebel is perched majestically in his commander's hatch, wearing his binoculars and headset like some sort of Patton wannabe… or an Erwin Rommel? Regardless, the NCO reaches inside his compartment to pick out his map case, checking that his maps and other tools are in place.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Schwenkfeld looks ahead through the driver's slot while the engine of the 231 rumbles.

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Von Meiszen pulls his cap tight over his forehead, adjusting the requisite jaunty angle. "Keep to the cover of the trees, driver," he instructs via the intercom, through his throat mic, keeping his eyes out for any glint of metal in the distance.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Schwenkfeld mutters over to his fellow crewmen, "Their machinegunner looks like he's a hurt a little."

Einar Kassel stands with the machinegun slung over his shoulder, stock forward and arm over it to counterbalance the barrel.

Einar Kassel has a nick on his finger. :P

Hirsch prowls around the road with his crew of Waffen-SS, infantry counterpart to the armoured cars that rumble ominously on the asphalt road. The air is chilly, the sky leaden, the drone of aero engines audible to all like the buzz of distant bees as the Luftwaffe rules the skies. "Where is the Oberscharfuhrer?" he asks Wagner a bit irritably.

Heinrich :is quiet, as he goes about cleaning his rifles out- MP40 on his back, he has the KAR out, ready to go. He looks over and around at the others, taking a deep breath. Locked and loaded, he pulls the bolt back and readies a bullet to be fired. "Ready." he says, looking to the others.

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Von Meiszen gets his binoculars into play. "Good, looks like someone's taken out their light tank," he muses, much relieved.

(From Sd.Kfz 231 #3739) The 2cm cannon cranks up and down as Bastian goes through the paces. "I'm sure he's fine," he says tersey. He may be getting better at manning the weapon, but he's yet to be comfortable in them.

Siegfried waits at the ready by the road. He's holding his rifle at a low-ready and that emotionless, vacant stare seems to put him miles beyond the overeagerness that threatens to well up with the butterflies in his stomach.

Wagner shakes his head. "I don't know, sir," the older man says. He stands near the CO at attention, SMG slung behind his shoulder. It seems he's also waiting for the Oberscharfuhrer to appear.

«Ground Vehicles» Veit is silent. Von is the voice, Veit is the hand. The typical driver. If he's nervous, he's hiding it. His blue eyes do dart here and there, uneasy. Hmmn.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Schwenkfeld turns to Erwin, "Feldwebel. Is it true someone took out that Polish tank?" from the driver's seat.

Hirsch mutters something under his breath, perhaps an obscenity, who knows? "Well, Scharfuhrer, you better make your report while Baumann finishes shaving or whatever he's doing." he says crisply.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Bastian puffs up proudly, not saying a word. He knows someone who took out a Polish tank the other day!

Wagner nods to Hirsch. "Very well," he says, unfolding a map he produces from a pocket. Wagner points at the river. "This is River Warta, of course, and the bridge." He points at a location with a pencil and circles it. "Our recon of the areas south of the bridge revealed a machine gun emplacement here, at 17,4." He draws a line south. "A slit trench runs north-south along the river. However, we should be able to cross at the swamps here," Wagner says, pointing at the southernmost part of the river shown on the map.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Schwenkfeld looks back to Erwin again, "Sir. We can't cross anywhere but the bridge. What's your order, Feldwebel?"

Hirsch nods, studying the map and the marks Wagner draws on it. Then he heads over to Erwin's Sonderkraftzeug. "Feldwebel?" he calls out over the engine, banging on the side in case he doesn't hear.

«Ground Vehicles» Bastian gets out of Sd.Kfz 231.

Ewald wasn't late. No. He was tying up some last miniute logistic problems. The Obersharfuher approache the muster area, with a couple of slow footed schutze, a sour look on his face. "Hurry up," he snarls at them.

«Ground Vehicles» Jakob gets into Sd.Kfz 231.

«Ground Vehicles» Bastian gets into Sd.Kfz 231.

Nodding quietly to Ewald, Heinrich throws off a salute to him as he comes. "The Squad is ready, Obersharfuher." he says quietly… He's grinning like a loon, ready for another fight.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Erwin mutters, "Wait here." he says into his mic. The Sergeant climbs out of his car, unclipping his mic, leaving his MP40 in the car, but he takes his map, just to be sure.

«Ground Vehicles» Erwin gets out of Sd.Kfz 231.

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Obershutze Von Meiszen drops into the turret to check the ammunition belt briefly before popping back up to consult the map. It was fine, but he had one of those "did I leave the stove on" moments.

«Ground Vehicles» Jakob gets out of Sd.Kfz 231.

«Airstrike!» A Stuka screams down from overhead, headed for Minor road! (16 7)
«Airstrike!» A Stuka screams down from overhead, headed for Minor road! (16 6)

«Airstrike!» A Stuka screams down from overhead, headed for Swamp/Marsh! (17 6)

Hirsch sees the feld climbing out of his car, and then now he knows he really can hear him, states, "I'm taking my men over the river to the south, there is a way across without hitting the bridge dead on. We'll work our way up…" and then he ducks instinctively as all hell breaks loose not so far to the east.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Schwenkfeld snorts, "Gunner. Just you and me, and I hear a dive bomber outside." He grits his teeth, holding the wheel.

Einar Kassel kicks the hull near Schwenkfeld from his seat next to the commander's empty one. "I'm not a gunner, this is just a… temporary duty assignment," he grumbles.

Erwin nods slightly, "I will wait for your radio signal, I do not want a frontal approach of the bridge in the armored cars, would be suicide if they have any anti-tank weapons. Besides, I will need your infantry to secure the positions, we can provide suppressive fire, but little else."

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Bastian kicks the hull near Schwenkfeld from his seat next to the commander's empty one. "I'm not a gunner, this is just a… temporary duty assignment," he grumbles.

Ewald doesn't even flinch when the bombs start going off some distance away. No, he remains stony faced, though Heinrich does get a bit of a glare. "Do you want some Pole coward sniper to take my head off, Shutze?" he say before approaching the SS captain. "Sir."

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Veit :is awaiting orders patiently, tensed like a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. The man takes a deep breath, gripping the steering wheel and loosening his grip alternately. Right.

Siegfried's head jerks off to the right hearing the wail of the Stukas, watching, entranced as they make their dives. He lets his attention wander only for a moment, remaining otherwise silent and awaiting direct orders.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Schwenkfeld scratches at his face, frowning as the 231's engine rumbles idle.

Einar Kassel turns his round face upwards, watching the planes. "Marvelous…" he whispers, enraptured.

Hirsch nods. "We'll make sure we are keeping the Poles busy, but we will need your firepower, I am sure.". He turns to Ewald. "Heil Hitler!" he declares, though he skips the physical salute part. "We're late. Lets move out. Scharfuhrer Wagner knows the way, I believe.".

«Game» Hirsch changes his style to Sprint!

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Von Meiszen looks up at the sound, eyeing the planes through his binoculars as they make their approach, wheeling and diving like hawks.

Wagner doesn't gaze at the planes, but instead looks south. To the men, he snaps, "Get ready to move! Everyone on me!" He trots southeast.

Erwin nods, "Keep on the radio, we will remain here at the bridge for now…" he says, turning back to his car.

«Ground Vehicles» Erwin gets into Sd.Kfz 231.

Wagner drops to a knee and gazes warily at the river. He points, "Polish trench starts there." To Hirsch, he says, "Sir, with your permission, I suggest taking an assault team to 17,1, then hitting the trench from the south. I can signal when it's safe to cross the river here."

Ewald takes up a post low in the grass, his rifle held up so he can sight across the river.. or the very least into the river, a serious expression his face. "The river itself is clear, sir," he tells the SS Officer, not looking back at him.

Hirsch drops down low, and takes up a spot behind a treetrunk, peering out around it at the river up ahead. "Take one other of your choice, Scharfuhrer." he says with a nod. "Not the Oberscharfuhrer though, he'll be needed in the assault from this direction.". A pause. "When we get into their trenches I want everybody heading north to the bridge as fast as they can, making sure all opposition on the way are eliminated, of course. I doubt we'll have time to get the machinegun in position until we are at the road itself.".

Einar Kassel seeing the overwhelming firepower in the trench, Einar keeps himself low. Not wanting to grease his own men, he opts to go slow and low, so as to be a better surprise.

Wagner slides down into the trench and says to Hirsch, "Siegfried is back there." He taps his helmet, "Took one to the head." He stops to radio the vehicles.

Einar Kassel isn't keeping quiet, his kit clanking as he struggles down the trench. "I swear to the Fuhrer, I'm going to get in better shape starting tomorrow," he gasps.

"The Fuhrer demands nothing less than excellence," Wagner says as he jogs south. "And let's not keep the Obersturmfuhrer waiting, either."

«Ground Combat» Wagner moves South <S>.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Erwin nods to the Officer, reaching down to open up the access hatch for their new passenger, "Driver, get ready to take us back to the truck."

«Ground Combat» You notice Einar Kassel arrive at Minor road.

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Von Meiszen removes his cap and wipes his brow, musing, "Hmm. That anti-tank rifle could come in handy the next time we meet something a machinegun won't kill." He unplugs his headset and climbs out of the car to get it.

Hirsch has been waiting for Wagner to emerge from the treeline. "Scharfuhrer, the Heer have been good enough to offer you a lift back to our truck. If you take them up on their offer, you can get the truck back here and get the wounded evacuated.".

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Bastian glances over to the commander. "Sir, I could get out, make room for more."

«Ground Vehicles» Von Meiszen gets out of Sd.Kfz 221.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Schwenkfeld squints a moment. "Yes, sir. The truck." and wheels the vehicle around to face south.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Erwin shakes his head, "No, Hertz, they have more than two wounded, and we're not a taxi."

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Schwenkfeld speaks up, "The scout car carries more passengers. It has less armour. Can hold more wounded."

«Game» Von Meiszen changes his style to Sprint!

"The trench line to the north was clear, sir." Wagner says to Hirsch. He nods to his CO, "That's generous of the Heer. I'll go get the truck." He climbs into the armored car.

«Ground Combat» Von Meiszen moves into Slit Trench.

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Veit waits patiently as Von Meiszen climbs out. "Simply give the word, Herr," Veit looks over, keeping the smaller armored car idle and ready.

«Ground Combat» Wagner moves out of Slit Trench.

Von Meiszen runs over and jumps down into the trench to pack up the Polish 'secret weapon.'

Einar Kassel hurries down the line, sweating profusely. "Alright, let's get a defence set up here. Those bastard Poles could come back with a vengeance - don't forget the ones we bypassed south of here."

«Equipment» Von Meiszen has dropped Stielhandgranate.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Erwin glares down at the driver's head, "Corporal, and I use that term loosely, you will follow my orders and keep your opinions to yourself, unless i have to give you the same treatment Hertz recieved."

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Erwin waits for Wagner to get in, "Ok, take us back to the truck."

«Ground Vehicles» Erwin works on reloading MG 34 with 7.92-54!

«Equipment» Von Meiszen picks up 7.92-107DS x 35.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Schwenkfeld blinks to Erwin as he hears word from outside about 'bypassed' Poles. "Should I drive back to the truck now, sir?" He smirks, "My arm's still sore after that explosion. I'll drive, sir, but it won't be as fast as we were able to go before we were hit."

Von Meiszen leaves a stick grenade for the infantry (who are more likely to use it, anyhow) and takes the heavy rifle back to the car, to strap it to the side. "This'll be a surprise for anyone who knocks out our ride," he chuckles to himself.

Hirsch isn't quite sure why the Heer are bossing his SS men around, even if they are being kind with transport. He pats Einar on the shoulder. "Get that MG 34 set up, you'll have to hold any counterattacks along with that car.".

«Ground Combat» Von Meiszen moves out of Slit Trench.

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Schwenkfeld keeps quiet as the SS men board the truck. He's frowning for some reason, eyes slightly narrowed as he watches the road towards the east.

The truck pulls to a stop, and Wagner gets out to assist the wounded. "It's a long way back to town, sir," Wagner tells Hirsch. "And I'm not the best driver. Could you perhaps request someone more competent from the Heer?"

Hirsch hauls Wagner in, and presumably Siegfried and Heinrich as well, if some flunky NPC types have brought Siegfried up a bit closer. Or he made it himself. "Alright, Scharfuhrer…" he says, as he grapples with Ewalds heavy ass. "Get on the radio and see what Command says.".

(From Sd.Kfz 231) Bastian overhears and shakes his head. "It ain't me. The day you can lean a truck into a turn, let me know—I'll gladly drive."

Einar's breath just settles down when the shells whistle. "Dammit!!"

«Ground Vehicles» Erwin says "SOUTH!"

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Veit picks up the ammunition belt near him and hands it up and over towards Von Meiszen, "Of course." Smirk. He does return his attentions to the area around him now, should he need to steer the car out of the way.

Hirsch is unimpressed by the accuracy of the Polish shells. "Well, if they know we're here and are trying to hit us, they are doing a pisspoor job." he declares.

«Artillery» 75mm Light Artillery artillery barrage batters Minor road ineffectually.

«Artillery» You hear artillery pounding Minor road (16 7).

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Veit nods, though he seems less sure of that hearing the artillery fire. "Perhaps they sent the blind shooters today huh?" It's a nervous joke, humor in the face of near death. His voice is a bit shaky.

Einar Kassel is quiet, pressed tight against the wall of the earthenworks. He's not in the best of firing positions, paying more attention to saving his butt from the explosions raining in the air

Wagner brushes some pebbles and dust off of his helmet. "Think they'll attack once they stop the shelling?"

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Von Meiszen grimaces as a chunk of shrapnel clangs into the front of their little car. "You shouldn't have said that," he coolly chastises his driver. "You'll jinx us."

«Game» Von Meiszen changes his style to Standard!

«Artillery» 75mm Light Artillery artillery barrage batters Minor road ineffectually.

«Artillery» You hear artillery pounding Minor road (16 7).

Einar Kassel was just calming down when another shell blasts into the ditch. "Shit!! These are their positions! Those Poles had forever to range in on them! It's just a matter of time!" His voice gets wheezy as the young machinegunner approaches a good panic.

«Artillery» 75mm Light Artillery artillery barrage batters Minor road ineffectually.

«Artillery» You hear artillery pounding Minor road (16 7).

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Von Meiszen spins the turret around to check the other way. "You know what they say, Schutze Veit… it's not the bullet with your name on it that gets you, it's the shrapnel marked 'to whom it may concern.'"

Hirsch eyes Einar. "If they had the foresight to do that they would have hit us by now." he tells him. "The Poles probably didn't have the intelligence to do so. We'll be fine.".

«Game» Hirsch tries to inspire the troops!

Wagner points to the north. "The Untermensch sure do know how to chop down trees," he comments. "They're doing a fine job shelling the woods." He smirks.

«Artillery» 75mm Light Artillery artillery barrage batters Minor road ineffectually.

«Artillery» You hear artillery pounding Minor road (16 7).

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Von Meiszen touches his throat mic to get a good connection, and tells his driver, "The infantry have their trenches, but we may as well move back a bit. Roll west just a touch, out of the Polish positions; they seem to be dropping most of it on us here."

Einar Kassel jerks his canteen out, taking a gulp. "YEah… yeah, you're right. Still, I'd feel better if we had more machineguns in play here…"

(From Sd.Kfz 221) Von Meiszen hangs onto the rails as another shell bursts close enough to rock the car with another few chunks of shrapnel. "Ah, of course… south and then west, my mistake. I'll let the other cars know they should do likewise."

Hirsch shakes his head. "Stand fast men, the Poles don't have limitless ammunition with which to cut down their own trees…" he says, affecting a slightly bored note. This to the SS mostly, not the Heer guys.

Einar Kassel offers a nervous snicker, but nothing more as he tentatively settles back in behind his MG.
