Fuchs takes a round to the chest, but thankfully it is high up toward his shoulder, and tears through his flesh cleanly. It slowed him down on his way north, giving Hirsch the chance to catch up with him. He stops and leans against one wall of a building, searching out the source of the incoming fire.

Wagner slings his submachine gun behind his shoulder and reaches for a grenade, following Hirsch into the building.

Hirsch piles into the building. His SMG is almosto ut and his left hand hurts, so… he draws his Luger.

Hirsch watches as Jozef is send to Valhalla, big time. "Alright, the area is secure!".

Jozef drops down on the floor, life pretty much running away.

«Command from Hirsch» All around looks clear. Hows the MG ammo doing?

Fuchs has apparently been released from the current wave of 'upfront' duty, and so turns and heads back toward Ewald, calling over his shoulder, "I've got the gunner."

«Command from Hirsch» Everybody take a moment to reload.

«Game» Fuchs changes his style to Sprint!

Siegfried halts as the color in Jozef's face drains, steeling himself and stepping back for a short breath, following suite to the orders and reloading.

«Ground Combat» Siegfried reloads his Kar98k!

"North grasslands are clear!" Ewald shouts, "We are low on ammunition. Full belt in the gun, 26 rounds in reserve.

Hirsch looks around. Siegfried is near by, and has a rifle. "Schutze, how you doing for ammunition?" he asks.

Fuchs calls over his shoulder, "I've got another 50 for the big gun, sir." as he hunts down his partner.

Fuchs comes running back in, having heard that there is ammo for him to carry off to the MG… just in time to hear that damn whistling. It was a sound he'd never forget, and immediately slams himself against a wall, hoping that the building will protect them from incoming shells.

Hirsch reaches for a fresh magazine, even as the shells begin to arrive. "Everybody down! "

Ewald takes cover right away, crouching down away from the window and machine gun now.

«Ground Combat» Siegfried moves into Building.

«Game» Siegfried changes his style to TakeCover!

«Artillery» You hear artillery pounding City (4 5).

«Equipment» Siegfried has dropped 7.92-57 x 50.

Wagner grimaces as the arty starts falling. He looks at those in the same building as him. "Any wounded here, or are they all in the other building?"

Hirsch stays down while the barrage works itself on the street outside. "Looks like we'll be pinned for a while, I don't want to move out into that. Scharfuhrer, you did a first aid course, didn't you?" he asks Wagner.

«Equipment» Fuchs picks up 7.92-57 x 50.

«Artillery» You hear artillery pounding City (4 5).

Riechter snarls as a hunk of shrapnel tears through his arm at the same moment he dives into the building with Ewald. "Shit for timing, sir…" he remarks. "Should've stayed on guard duty at the field hospital, hey?" he notes, chuckling a bit as he cradles the wounded arm.

«Game» Hirsch tries to inspire the troops!

Fuchs takes the ammo canisters and places them in a pack he wears on his back. He leans against the wall and closes his eyes, taking a few breaths. "This should only last a few minutes, and we'll be fine."

Hirsch shouts, "THE POLES ARE COWARDS! THE UNTERMENSCHEN DOGS ARE FLEEING BACK TO WARSAW!".

"Come here, let me look at that arm," Ewald tells Riechter once he's in the building, a little frown on his face as he takes his small medical kit out. Unfortunatly.. his hands shake too much and he's not able to bind that arm well.

«Artillery» 75mm Light Artillery artillery barrage batters City ineffectually.
«Artillery» Artillery barrage at City has lifted!
«Artillery» You hear artillery pounding City (4 5).

Siegfried sighs slightly to calm his electrified and adrenalin-laden nerves, eyes lowering and regaining that steely glint as he looks out to the now smoke-filled streets.

"Heh… at least I'm not the only one having a bad day, eh?" Riechter points out as the Oberscharfuhrer seems unable to properly bind his arm. "Thanks all the same… it'll feel better once I can spatter another Pole."

Hirsch hmms as the shelling stops. "That didn't take long. Must be short on ammunition. How are we doing? Status?" he asks, looking around.

«Artillery» 75mm Light Artillery artillery barrage batters City ineffectually.

«Artillery» You hear artillery pounding City (4 5).

«Medic Code» Wagner successfully performs first aid on Fuchs!

Siegfried "Ready to die, Sir," Siegfried responds, looking to the lead officer and indicating a still heavy pouch of ammunition.

Wagner moves over to Fuchs and applies a field dressing. "You're lucky it was just a scratch, Schutze," he murmurs, then goes to peer out the window. "Still nothing to the east," he says.

«Game» Fuchs tries to inspire the troops!

Ewalds like is bleeding rather profusely from a nice little bullet hole. "Things are going well," he says, with a little nod, "Not much you can do about shells though, is there?" He smirks.

«Game» Hirsch tries to inspire the troops!

Hirsch shouts, "WE'LL BE MOVING OUT IN A MINUTE. EVERYBODY MAKE SURE YOU'RE READY!".

«Artillery» You hear artillery pounding City (4 5).

"Nothing north," Riechter notices as he attempts to staunch the flow with his hand.

Siegfried grunts and presses his rifle up tight to his shoulder.

Fuchs winces again… it must be the antiseptic. Did they know something he didn't? Oh well, now was not the time for it… He nods once, quickly, and actually grins. "It's in our blood, you know. German warriors and all." Even under fire, the propaganda machine is churning.

«Game» Fuchs tries to inspire the troops!

«Game» Hirsch tries to inspire the troops!

Hirsch checks his submachinegun, it is indeed all ready to go. "Alright, thats enough sitting around, everybody get ready to move out. Wagner, you done with Fuchs yet?" he asks, walking over to the two of them.

«Game» Ewald changes his style to Sprint!

"Some of us more so than others," Riechter calls over to the other building. "Had a great-great-great-grandfather who was a Bare-sark for the Counts of Erbach…"

«Game» Riechter changes his style to Sprint!

"Machine gun ready to move!" Ewald shouts.

Ewald just ah.. takes cover. He is not an animal. He is UBERMENSCH!

Hirsch finds a shady spot, and pokes around, checking windows, making sure there aren't any scum hiding in the building itself.

"East is clear," Riechter pipes up as he trots along, carefully cradling his wounded arm.

«Ground Combat» Ewald moves into Building.

«Ground Combat» You are now peeking into City.

«Ground Combat» Fuchs moves into Building.

Siegfried trots along behind the group, stalking along and eyeing the upper story windows, waiting for a spiner to pick off easier targets.
Hirsch looks southwards. "Looks clear to the south as well.". A brief pause. "Looks like the enemy resistance was pretty light. I guess we can thank the Luftwaffe again.".

«Ground Combat» Riechter moves into Building.

«Command from Hirsch» MG team can stay here, the rest, head south, just to doublecheck.

«Ground Combat» You notice Riechter arrive at City.

«Ground Combat» Fire mode has been changed to FA.

«Command from Hirsch» Looks like the area is secure. Wounded back to the medics, Wagner can bring some ammo up.

Siegfried stops near the far side of the building they've taken up, turning around to peer back northwards.

«Game» Pabianice is no longer a war zone!

Afterwards…

Hirsch returns, looking rather pleased with himself. And promptly gets into cover. Seeing Baumann and co. here on the MG as expected, he nods. "The Polish are really out of their league, here.".

"It's ludicrous that the partisans even bother resisting, sir," Wagner says, nodding.

"They are, sir," Ewald says with a little nod his his head as he takes a step back from the machine gun to stand ramrod straight. Or at least as straight as his leg will allow, "But I am not suprised. They are, after all, only Poles."

Hirsch looks through the window at the forested slopes of a hill, with a picturesque church at the base of the hill. "We'll be headed up there, soon. That church is no doubt defended, and there are probably Poles on the heights as well, maybe even artillery.". He ponders. "But if our performance today is anything to go by they won't be a problem.".

Fuchs snaps to attention as well beside Ewald, apparently uninjured, except a single bandage near his left shoulder. Still, salutes are bad, even here, and so he simply nods in response to the Obersturmfuhrer. "When do we begin scouting out the new objective, sir?"

"Tonight or tomorrow." Hirsch says thoughtfully. He eyes Wagner and Ewald, the ninjas. "Probably tonight.".

"I'm not worried, sir," Ewald says, "This one of the finest platoons I've served with in my career." Of course, the finest was his company at Mons, but he doesn't say that.

Hirsch nods. "Well. Until then, Baumann, make sure this place is defensible, the Poles may counter for all we know. Make sure the supply of ammunition is attended to as well, the MG 34 does need a fair amount of it.".

«Game» Ewald unwields his MG 34!

«Equipment» Ewald has dropped MG 34.

"I'll get right on that sir," Ewald says quietly. After a stop at the field hospital, anyways.
