What year is it? I didn't see anything in the OP, though, of course, I might have missed it...
The date of our first mission will be 6 June 1944.

Spoiler~

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

Not like that date is familiar or anything...

But what was important, was that she had a motherfucking boat.
And by God, was she going to use it.

Piecewise, which skill do I use to whack a fool with a shovel? What about a frying pan or something?

Exotic melee, says so in the description. Although pan could be hand to hand too.

Exo melee specifically specifies sharpened shovels, which sounds more like an intentional melee weapon than our general-use entrenching tools. Hence the question.

I would hope your entrenching tool is sharpened. Although given what I hear it would seem like they wouldn't be to out if place.

Hand to hand covers improvised weapons like that. However, if you were to sharpen the shovel to make it into a weird melee weapon, that would be exotic melee.




Alright, so let's get this first mission explained and then get ourselves some volunteers for the first wave!


Alright boys, by now I'm sure most of you have heard the scuttlebutt. After months of preparation, the United States and her allies are prepared to launch a combined invasion of the Atlantic wall and Nazi-occupied Europe beyond it. The 888th has been assigned to follow the Big Red One, assaulting a section of Utah beach in Normandy. We're clearing the way for armor, troop transports and all manner of military might. We're making our first foothold here and then continuing forward, planting our boots firmly into whatever soil or ass we need to. We've been assigned this section of beach here.


The RAF boys took these shots for us.  As you can see, Hitler's lined his beaches with Czech Hedgehogs and barbed wire to prevent armor or larger ships from landing. He's also got bunkers build up on the hills overlooking the beach and trenches dug out behind them. In the very back there is the local command bunker. We're going in with two other groups and your job is very simple: Clear that beach.  Its gonna go like this.

First, we land here and push forward, up the beach until we get behind these bunkers and out of their line of fire.



Then we split up and knock them out.


Then we continue forward, clearing these trenches.


Then converge on the bunker.


And take it out.




Couldn't be easier eh? Machine guns and mortar fire? Barbed wire and Krauts with rifles and a homicidal desire to prove the superiority of the german people?  Its really too bad Hilter couldn't muster a proper challenge for us huh? Well, just for fun I'm gonna give you boys some bangalore mines; they're basically a grenade on the end of a pipe the you can push out into places you don't wanna stick your hands and blow up barbed wire and the like.  I suggest Demos take them, don't want anyone blowing themselves up.  Oh, and I should let you know; see that ramp the red line leads to from the water up to the hills and the bunkers and such? That little area there is the only easy, walkable path from the sand to the grass, the rest is steep dirt slopes. You can climb them if you want but its gonna be hard. You're gonna be with two other infantry groups landing on either side of you. Work with'em as best you can.

Any questions?

You want questions?, well here's some questions

Two questions, First is it a plausible to use/call my air strike a through flare on turn 1 or the turn of embark? Even though it's a... well let say a "eccentric" move. Second could a revolver be replaced with a M190 for only thematic purposes since I have the classified "commander" rank, or at least the equipment they use. A cooler side-arm just seems more special.

Okay this is a stupid but confirmation type of question, would the STG44/ MP44 be considered a "Submachine Gun", even though it's classified as an assault rifle. I mean this question would probably only be relevant if we scavenge loot off a dead German soldier after Normandy, so it's truly a pointless question.

Nope. Its not an air strike, its an artillery strike. And we don't have any artillery set up in the ocean, do we?

Hmm...I'd say it would be a rifle since it uses rifle rounds rather than pistol ammo, which is sometimes cited as a defining difference between SMGs and rifles.

I volunteer! I'm a trench clearer aren't I?

And There is historical precedent for something close enough to a sea based artillery strike...

Y-you'll probably want a radio operator for that assault? Can it please please be someone other than me?

Also I'd like to weaponize my shovel.

"No questions for me, sir! An opportunity to kill some Nazi bastards? Count me in!" Bob gave a sharp salute, his face unperturbed, in contrast to his gleeful tone.

Well, there's Naval Artillery.  Maybe call in some gunfire from offshore ships or landing craft?

((Not an anti-materiel rifle. An anti-tank recoilless rifle. Which doesn't mean that it can't tear up all the materiel and then some. :P))
