Imagine a world where the Allies didn't win the war, nor did the Axis. Instead, the war just continued on and on in an unsteady stalemate. Welcome, to the world of 1949. In this world Germany decided not to bomb London, but instead continued its attacks on Britain's airfields. Then, the Russians lost at Kursk. Finally, D-Day fails. With these victories, Germany has managed to halt the Allie's progress. In the Western Theatre, the Allies and the Axis each plan the invasion of the other's vital territories. In the Pacific, Japan and the United States are dueling over tiny islands with giant fleets and atomic weapons. Now, the stalemate is about to be broken. Germany is preparing an all out invasion of Britain. As tough and valiant as the Allied troops defending the Sceptered Isle are, some of their leaders are beginning to that they will be unable to hold against the Wehrmacht.

The Allied troops got pinned trying to to the nearby cap point. These guys started taking potshots at them once they were in range.

I think there may have been a nearby MG team, unless it was Volkschutzen themselves that did it. Small arms need to have their suppression tweaked a bit at the moment, so that may very well be what happened.

Description

Volkschutzen are a new unit for both the Panzer Elite and Wehrmacht. For both factions, they are conscripts and volunteers who serve as marksmen. They are armed with the cheap VolksGewehr 2 (not Volkssturm Gewehr, mind you, the Volkssturm don't exist in this universe). The circumstances under which they may appear for the Wehrmacht are rather interesting, and will be discussed in the next update. These men gain veterancy through fighting, and can go from being green soldiers to excellent marksmen.
