However, the reader made an excellent observation. The Polish 6th Pomeranian Air Landing Division, which was also to be committed to LANDZEELAND, would've been much more likely to spare troops to support operations in LANDJUT. Again, entirely true. So I've decided to include a few stands from the 6th Pomeranian in my force, if for no other reason than they had very attractive dark red berets (I could only find a color photo of their beret from the back):
And here are some of my Polish airborne:
An airborne antiaircraft company consisted of six ZU-23-2 guns towed by GAZ-66 prime movers and a UAZ-469 command vehicle.
Here's a couple of real airborne guns:
There were actually two basic types of GAZ-66, the standard version:
As an aside, while researching the color of Cold War-era Polish military vehicle license plates (white, by the way), I came across a number of photos showing GAZ-66's with gray canvas covers. Most militaries use covers of one variety of green or another (which may or may not have a camouflage pattern on it) or a multitude of differing shades of "canvas", but I find the gray quite nice looking, so I'll be throwing one in now and again.
That's it for this time. More next post!
