Bourkey;3248517Did they really do a 21gun salute for every cermonial burial? If your looking at 3.2million german casualties, then roughly what 1.8million were buried ceromonially (this is probably a way out guess), thats a lot of bullets. Would they have stopped the practice in the last few years of the war?

I suspect the German formal burial with military honors was the norm in the Summer of 1941, and then gradually became the exception, not the rule. However, those Wehrmacht guys were pretty dedicated to paying proper homage to their gefallene kameraden.

David Hasselhoff;3248470Nice find.. One of the pictures had a scoped MG34(in trench).. That was probably uncommon but can be nice for some trench mgs in FH2

That was very common, all tripod mounted MGs were issued scopes. 1.5 zoom, meant to be used to make aiming easier, and provide indirect fire. Tripod mgs were accurate to near 2 miles, they needed the scope.
