Historic scenario : After the dramatic fighting on the Eastern front. The 16-Inf Div. also known as ‘Der Windhund-division’ had lost most of its fighting value. From March-May 1944 remnants of the division as well as recovered soldiers of the many hospitals were ordered to form a new division in France:
The 116th Pz. Div.
During this event we will portray the first arrivals in Northern France. A mixture of 16 Inf. Div. veterans, men of the 179 Pz.-Div. and new replacements to regain the strength of the division.
With most of the heavy equipment and vehicles left behind in Russia, we are set to be at patrols, refitting, retrain and practice, in order to form a cohesive unit once the Division is ready to be sent to the front.
