What If We Used Paratroops To Take Schweinfurt and Regensburg in '43?

    Yeah I wondered at first if it was sheer ignorance, but no, it's another Shooterike...with chili now instead of MG 42.

    Take a sharp screwdriver and a hammer, punch a hole in the bottom of vehicles gas tanks, drain the gasoline into cans, use the gas to set the factory on fire.

    The P-38's with bombs could get jumped? They would not have bomb loads. They have four guns in the nose for strafing.

    A few rockets would decimate infantry? I'm not sure if you mean rockets on the P-38's used against German troops or rockets on ME 109's would be used against the paratroops. The P-38's would use guns, no rockets, no bombs, their mission would be to seek out any airfields and attack any aircraft and hit any military vehicles or troops around Schweinfurt or Regensburg. They would focus on the roads leading to the cities.

    Paratroopers are not meant to take entire cities and hold them for years? We took Berlin in '45 with paratroops. How long did they stay in Berlin?

    Bombers are meant to strike targets that would be impossible for any infantry to take? Are you aware that infantry actually went into Germany in '45 and took most of the country?

    The paratroops used in Market Garden did not take whole cities? These paratroops would not take the whole city either. They would not go door to door moving people into camps or anything like that.

    Their mission would be to destroy the factory, tear up the railroad tracks, destroy the bridges, cut the phone lines, then sieze some trucks, assault the police stations and take all guns and ammo, go to the stores and take a bunch of food, then take a building near the main roadways into the city and position troops.

    Five years of college, my GPA was 3.72. I retired at 40, big house in California on ten acres, all paid for. I wrote a check. What was the biggest check you ever wrote? Mine was $538,000 and it went through.

    What was your college GPA?

    Good for you. Was this big house on ten acres 1 or 2 miles outside of Schweinfurt?

    More than $538,000.

    3.94 huh? Yeah, Canada needs more basket weavers.

    Was my house near Schweinfurt? Not quite. Prime California real estate baby. Eat it like your mom did.

    You wrote a check for more than $538,000? To yourself in a dream and it bounced.

    Are all of you out of shape, balding, homo's who have never gotten married and haven't had a girlfriend in years?

    That's why you all follow each other on here and gang up on any new visitor, isn't it? You don't have any other friends other than scrawny bald guys who spend all their time on the internet and have never bench pressed 100 lbs in their life and waste the day wacking to Maxim magazine.

    Big house located on "Prime" California real estate? Well that explains a lot. Here's a rare biographical ballad of this story.

    No......we don't judge you on, race, age, gender, hair color, money, hand size, or whatever, we judge you on what you contribute to the forum, and I'm afraid that making up a whole scenario such as this that is truly beyond the realm of common sense and military strategy is why we are responding the way we are. There is a sub-section on here for alternate histories and such but nothing quite like this. We appreciate all WW2 enthusiasts, but it's hard to agree with things that are far from practical or realistic. A vast majority of the people on this forum are actually below the age of 40 (including myself) but hey that's okay you seem to know all of the universes questions....

    I get it. I thought he might be the Dook of Earl, but he's really the Dook of Beverly Hills.

    You didn't want a discussion. You wanted a fight, now you got one and your surprised?

    I know I'll be banned pretty quick but what would I talk about with a bunch of small clique of homo's anyway?

    Here's some advice, some pushups would be a nice start, as many sets of twenty as you can do, and get rid of the gay faggot dog and get a real dog, toss out the pink T-shirts, and don't post pictures of Maxim magazine when you're creepy looking because it makes everyone think you're Chester the molester.

    I know the pushups are going to be a real problem for you.

    Do you know how many people we lost in the two missions to Schweinfurt?

    I don't care if anyone disagrees with me. I can handle a debate, but you guys want to start a fight. I can play that game too.

    Dude, your comprehension is pretty poor for a genius smart enough not to have a pink homo dog. I said I was not surprised...your first post said it all.

    I hope you're not really a comedian. You're so not funny. You're like this Hawaiian Catholic comedian I saw a few months ago in Honolulu. He wasn't funny either. He didn't cuss. It's not right, a comedian who doesn't cuss.

    My comprehension is pretty poor? It has to be, right? Anyone who has an idea that you couldn't come up with has to have poor reading comprehension. We're all supposed to read your books that are full of other better men's accomplishments, nothing you've ever done.
