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?

For the structure of our campaigns, we use original manuals of the period in order to conduct our missions as realistically as possible. This includes the size of the group, the weaponry issued, as well as the tactics and formations used during the conflict.

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.

Is a Steam community account required to enlist and participate?

Yes. In order to communicate to our members easily, we use Steam for announcements and social communication. You must have a Steam community account to enlist.

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?

Yes, there are multiple and they all have their purpose:
For general organisation and to be informed you must have a discord account and join our Discord server.
You also need ArmA3Sync, a software which keeps your mods updated.
In order to communicate in a realistic way ingame, or to just have a nice chat with the others TeamSpeak 3 must be installed.

Meet our Council

The upper leadership, the council, is generally kept low in number to minimize the time to make decisions and the arguing. The council only deals with large overreaching decisions, such as the moveover from one game to another. Other than that, they also deal with internal disputes in the unit, and the majority of the administration, server maintenance and communication with other people outside of the unit.
