A Few Questions about Bundeswehr


Recommended Posts

I'm working on a mission for depicting a combat exercise between US and West German forces in the mid-1980's. I had a few questions about Bundeswehr terminology:

What are the Bundeswehr terms for:

-- reconnaissance objective?

-- bridgehead (Brückenkopf?)

-- Named Area of Interest?

-- Phase Line (Phasenleitung?)

-- Feint (Finte?)

Hi Paladin,

-- reconnaissance objective --> Aufklärungsziel [AufklZ]

-- bridgehead --> Brückenkopf [brKopf]

-- Phase Line (Phasenleitung?) --> Phasenlinie

-- Feint (Finte?) --> Scheinangriff (mit Feindberührung)

-- Named Area of Interest --> ?

decisive terrain, key terrain (Bn level) --> Schlüsselgelände [sGL]
