Oberst Leutnant Helmut “PanzerMeister” von Loetingen Winterschlacht In Antarktika – 1946 (Antarctica Front Medal); Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes mit Eichenlaub – 1945 (Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves); Ehrenblatt des Heeres – 1944 (Honor Roll Clasp of the Army); Winterschlacht In Osten – 1942 (Eastern Front Medal). One of the most famous walker ace in the Axis, Helmut von Loetingen now leads the schwer Panzer Abteilung 515 (Heavy Panzer Regiment) who was deployed in Antarctica last year and recently back in Babylon, and he is in command of all Axis armored forces there. Of Bavarian lineage and from a proud military family, he is nearly as famous as General Major Walter “PanzerPrinz” von Furstenwerth, who has also been appointed to a higher position. Von Loetingen has written several inspired tactics manuals on how to operate a KampfLäufer (walker) group that have become widely known throughout the Bloc. He has started working on the next, dedicated to the extreme weather and terrain conditions that he now faces with his forces.
