hey

On this is a picture I promised you,    ;D, this is an old one I quickly got off my comp, the exit has changed but I have no time to get a shot of it today, maybe tomorrow...  ;)

Tomasz you know that map you've got does it show how the defensive positions of the beach exit were set up?

 Hi,

Sim, the map is not so detailed, but when i went to Omaha Beach, there are 3 exits (Vierville, St. Laurent {I stayed there over night} , and Colleville where the American Cementary is located). Each exit is like a valley with what once were bunkers on each side. I guess they would also put some barbed wire and mines over there.

I watched the show on National Geographic, where they talked about omaha beach.

First there were the dikes for the boats (under sea)
next were the poles with the mines (also undersea, but in low tide they were sticking out)
next there were the hedgehogs and plenty of antitank mines hidden in the sand
and finally the dense barbed wire.

There warent many bunkers like in SPR, there more mashine gun posts.

In reality due to the low tide, they had to run over 500 m to safe ground.

You can also add, that the DDtanks which were supposed to land with infantry sank like rocks too far from the shore.

Hope I gave some help

Cheers :cheers:

Tomasz

hey

Thanks m8, its just that loads of ppl keep giving me different info about the beach...

I watched the longest day last night and it is such a bloody good film, i do believe that the beaches on that are more realistic than SVP because it was made bout 10 or 12 yrs after the landings actually happened.

I realise that the pic i posted wasnt very good so you'll get a better one tomorrow morning so you can see what you think.

Hey gents,

I'm almost done reading a new book on D-Day ("D-Day: Omaha Beach" by Joseph Balkoski) which has lots and lots of diagrams of the beaches.  There isn't anything topographical but the locations of the main fortifications ("resistance nests") are listed along with the specific info on the locations and routes of US units.

I'll see if I can scan some of them and slap them up here tomorrow.

hey

hmmmmm..... SVP is meant to be extremely realistic but when compared to real photos from bunkers of WW2 it doesn't seem very realstic, in goryness and all its the best for realsim but not how the beach looked, well the part Im making anyway...

But if you could send me the pics that would be great!
