    The Vickers gun is not the worst war booty to have. When the UK retired the last of them in the 1960s (which is in itself a sign of how good it was, given that it's basically a souped up maxim with some parts built upside down) they took one, measured it out to as close to factory spec as they could and put no less than 7 million rounds through it, only pausing for switching crews and barrel change. Damn thing still ran when they were done.

    Photo of American Airborne and Walloon partisans outside Charleroi during the Operation Scythe, the first major offensive victory on the Western front for the Internationale.

    Operation Scythe first entered the planning stages following the Internationale's victory at 2nd Verdun in August 1940. Initially conceived as a primarily armoured operation with mainly American and French troops by Field Marshals Makhno and Butler, it was later given a third angle of attack in the form of the new American Airborne Corps and renewed contact with Walloon and Flemish partisans. For their part the Reichspakt Unified Command assumed that any counteroffensive would take place in Alsace-Lorraine, but they nonetheless realised that something would be happening in Walloonia, and reinforced the region with a mix of Baltic and Danubian troops, bolstered by some of the older obsolete but still dangerous German armoured divisions.

    The operation initially ran into several difficulties when it was launched in November of 1940, the Walloon partisans were for the most part crushed outside a handful who linked up with the airborne divisions in Chareloi, and the Luddendorf line took a full week longer than expected to break before the American tanks. Any opportunity for the Germans to capitalise on these gains however was rendered moot when the Swedish Commune fulfilled its part of the bargain, landing 2 divisions of the Peoples Marines directly into Antwerp with the help of the Flemish Liberation Front and taking the city. Suddenly almost half the Reichspakt forces in former Belgium were cut off from their supply lines.

    Operation Scythe officially ended on the 19th of February 1941 as a minor tactical victory for the Internationale, but a massive propaganda victory. Though the Baltic and German elements had been able to withdrawn from Walloonia in its entirety and western Flanders, the Danubian elements had almost a 50% casualty rate and 2 entire divisions captured as prisoners of war. Operation Scythe ultimately set the stage for the entry of Japan and Russia into the 2nd Weltkrieg as they realised the fragility of the world order the Germans led.

    I'm sorry, but English is not my mother tongue, so I use the Google translator.

    Very good, but I have a few complaints:

    I think that the Red French will get rid of the Adrian helmet. The “Adrians” will definitely remain with the loyalists in Africa (since there will not be enough industry for the development of new equipment, moreover, the scheme has been worked out). But the Reds, who are preparing in advance to a war for the World Revolution, will have not only opportunities, but also an incentive to improve equipment to meet the requirements of the time. And in the 30s. Adrian's helmet does not meet the requirements of the time - maybe it will remain with the police and firefighters, but this is the maximum. And for the army, the French will either develop a new helmet, or borrow from one of the allies of the International. If you interesting, then I think that the Italian helmet M33 will be a good candidate, unless, of course, it is developed in Socialist Italy, and not in some other.

    The round cap, which the commissar wears on art, is most likely not to be represented in the French Commune army, for the same reason that in Soviet Russia refused shoulder straps - is associated with the old imperialist officers. I think they will refuse a round cap and instead introduce a chekist-style cap.

    Ever since the end of the Second Weltkrieg in 1948, France had been ruled by a German puppet regime in all but name, first under Prince Francis of Bavaria, or Francis III, and then under his son Prince Ludwig of Bavaria, or Louis XIX, as they were known to the French. Only 20 years later, the regime would be ousted after riots broke out in the capital, Paris, which soon spread to the rest of France. Led by the 32-year old François Mitterrand, a former supporter of the regime, the riots eventually brought to France a new, 'Second Commune', which remains to this very day.

    Just awesome. I had made with the help of a friend some projects of AUS equipment too, for example:

    These were to be national guard. The one in the right lacks the proper equipment.

    What was happening that Germany didn't intervene?

    Photo of the 1964 Progress by Forge Motor Cooperative
    When the Forge Progress was unveiled it received critical acclaim due to its distinctive grill, smooth suspension and innovative interface.
    The Progress was the most popular and lauded automotive ever produced in the Socialist Republic of America with over 100 awards and 450,000 units sold despite the declining car market caused by the SRA's focus on rail transportation over automotive.

    The Germans tried and failed to intervene. Kind of like the US in Vietnam and Cuba.

    Also the rioters had enough equipment and soldiers from the Union of Britain and the CSA.

    The winter of 1942 was one of the most brutal on record in Europe. Unfortunately for everyone on the front, that meant more miserable conditions that ground all attacks to a near-complete halt. The Second Weltkreig met its first formidable, unstoppable foe: the weather.

    A picture of the God-Emperor of the Solar System. His brutal reign of National Populism from 2069 to 2420 was ended after Huey Long rose from the dead after being stabbed in the dick by a Stand arrow. The Stand arrow used to bring Huey Long back to life has been stored in Sheffield ever since. Huey Long’s Stand, Every Man a King, will save the Earth from the heat death of the universe.
