Are you interested in a realistic and professional WW2 unit?


Our operations focus on cooperative gameplay. We try to keep the structure and tactics that we employ as close to the historical thing as possible, though we do believe that gameplay should go above historical accuracy. Overall we go for a mixture of accuracy and entertainment. Most of our missions will be part of multi-mission campaigns, focussing on a specific battle in the war. These campaigns are always played from the German perspective, though we do play as other factions in side-missions which are played at set intervals between campaign missions to keep things fresh.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is the 2.Panzer-Division?

The 2.Panzer-Division is a Wehrmacht virtual milsim unit, for the latest Armed Assault title, ArmA III. The bulk of our previous experience has been in the Invasion '44 mod for ArmA 2 and the Red Orchestra series of games.

How much is historically based?

Our goal is to keep the structure of the Gruppen as close to their historical layout as possible by referencing manuals from the time. However, we do make some changes here and there for gameplay reasons. A fair bit of research also goes into our campaigns to give as accurate a representation of whatever real battle or event a particular campaign is based on as possible. This includes weapons and equipment used, as well as our order of battle.

Do you use mods?

Yes. To provide a more complete experience of the World War 2 setting, we use the relevant mods that are required in order to provide the best experience. These mods affect uniforms, equipment, vehicles, maps etc. The mod collection and installation instructions will be provided when enlisting.

Where are you primarily based?

The majority of our members are located in Europe. We will accept anyone on the globe, so long as their time zone does not significantly inhibit their ability to participate or otherwise cause them too many problems.

Do you only speak German?

Primarily we do not, there is only a small amount of German phrases and terms that will be used for formations and immersion, everything else is conducted in English.

Is there an age requirement to enlist?

No, we do not wish to exclude members of a lower age, but we expect that all members demonstrate the same level of respect and maturity in all situations.

I've only recently bought ArmA III, will this be an issue?

Not at all. We accept players of any skill or experience level, and all necessary information to brief new players on the basics of the game and our unit is provided through our manuals.

Do you only play ArmA III?

Officially, we are fixed to using ArmA III and it's avaliable content and modifications. Unofficially, we conduct regular gaming sessions in a variety of titles throughout the week.

Are we free to record our operation sessions?

Absolutely. We encourage members to record and take screenshots to contribute to media for the website, and for valuable intel on our internal campaigns.

Do you play with 3rd person view?

No, we do not.

Is there any additional software I need except ArmA III and Steam?

In order to join, you must at least have a Steam account (with ArmA 3 of course) and a Discord account. The latter is what we use as the primary means of communication and announcements.
Lastly, we use a program called Arma 3 Sync in order to maintain and distribute our mod pack. We have both written and video guides on our forum that guide new Rekruten through the process of setting it up.
