The End of an Era

When Berengar and Itami arrived in Japan, they were greeted by over ten thousand German troops. The most elite of which were assigned to be their escort. Standing at attention, with his arm raised in the air, was none other than Colonel Andreas Jaeger, the man who had practically founded Berengar's multiple special operations units, and who was in the eyes of many the ideal soldier. 

The man was not dressed in the same WW2 style uniform that the rest of the German soldiers wore. Instead, he and his men were wearing the typical special operations uniform, which included an East German M56/76 pattern Stahlhelm, with netting, a Russian defender 2 style plate carrier, with a smersh style load bearing equipment, and a blumentarn camouflaged uniform. 

Berengar knew that in the coming years, this advanced body armor, helmet, and camouflaged uniform would become the standard for the German Army, but for now, only a proud few had the privilege of wearing it.
