Hello to all

Winterübung - March 1936!
Following the thread, the deployment and combat instructions for 1935/36 established a defensive attitude with three armies and 13 divisions for the western border. The main effort (Schwerpunkt) was in the south with more than half of the forces engaged in the deployment plan according to the following scheme:
Abschnittskommando Nord (AOK E) with the HQ in Hagen and the 16. ID and 26. ID.
Abschnittskommando Mitte (AOK C) with the HQ in Bad Nauheim with the IX. AK and 9. ID, 19. ID and 34. ID.
Abschnittskommando Süd (AOK D) with the HQ in Winnenden and the IV. AK with 13. ID and 33. ID; V. AK with 7. ID, 15. ID and 25. ID; in addition to VII. AK with 5. ID and 17. ID.
As an army reserve, the 14th ID was kept available.
The Luftwaffe was in 1935 in its first phase of organization and had planned at the beginning of the year 1936 to organize the following forces:
7 Kampfgruppen (bomber groups)
1 Sturzkampfgruppe (dive bomber group)
2 Jagdgruppen (fighter groups)
13 Aufklärungsstaffeln (reconnaissance squadrons)
6 Seestaffeln (seaplane squadrons)
The preference of the bombers as an offensive weapon is clearly observed. However, the first-line aircraft of that branch did not comply at all with the requirements of modern air warfare. In a report of the German air conduction it was established that "German air armament, as assumed in the game after 1.4.36, is completely inappropriate."
