    Hello everybody.

    I was joking with @warzan on the last XLBS that I should do a MP3 so that everyone who is not a German native speaker would pronounce units and names correctly. It started as a joke but I somehow dig the idea. Obviously I can’t do all the units and names but I’m willing to make a test run of 10 names.

    Please give me 10 unit names you would like to have. I will collect all and then make something with the 10 most wanted.

    Here’s a list that most English / non German speaking users will have trouble with :

    • Tiger
    • Panzer (I suspect in English this would sound like :   pants – er )
    • Jäger
    • Gebirgsjäger
    • Fallschirmjäger
    • STuG
    • Sturmgeschütz

    You probably could add the ranks used by leaders as they’re used in Bolt-Action as well.

    Looking forward to seeing/hearing ‘some dude on the internet’ make this into a thing and then seeing the results by the OTT crew 😉

    Great Idea

    Ranks are always good to know and the basic words that get used alongside other words like Kampfgruppe or Sonderkraftfahrzeug

    I’d also like to see a video of the OTT all the crew given a list of these words and trying to say them that would be cool to see

    Add Nebelwerfer to @limburger ‘s list and can you please get angry and say Nein, Nein, Nein, Nein, Nein!

    Great idea by the way.

    “get angry”? Is there any other state of mind? oO

    I believe I can help with some of those!

    Using Limburger’s examples:

    Tiger – “Tee-Gah”
    Panzer – “Pan-zah”
    Jäger – “Yay-Gah”
    Gebirgsjäger – “Gee-Beers-Yay-Gah”
    Fallschirmjäger – “Fal-Schurm-Yay-Gah”
    STuG – “Schtoog”
    Sturmgeschütz – “Schturm-Geh-Shootz”

    We’ve got YouTube for that :

    Also further proof that one needs to be angry to speak German 😉

    correct, the wonderful thing about Tiggers is their bums are made out of rubber and their armour is made out of 100mm plate
