IV Reserve Korps

52 Bayerisch Luftkissenpanzergrenadier Division

This division has been recently created by combining and expanding two PKR's and the HQ of a disbanded division. Bavaria had several PKR's, independent light armoured groups of Kampfgruppe size ideal for screening and expeditionary operations and descended from US Cavalry units. These were well regarded and produced many influential officers, but PKR 11 was strongly opposed to Reunification and was disbanded after clashing with Saxon national army units. As a sop to the PKR lobby this new division was formed and has quickly gained a strong reputation and esprit de corps.

PKR 8 won a fine reputation in the WoGR striking deep into Alsace out of the Black Forest region and hitting the flanks of the French forces attacking towards Stuttgart. PKR 7 was stationed on Tirane and voted to repatriate itself in 2293 and it still has many Freihafeners in its ranks. The division is based in the area around Fulda.

54 Bayerisch Panzerjäger Division

54.PzJg.Div was formed from the rump of two units heavily damaged in the WoGR. It is a reserve unit based in and around Stuttgart with one active and one reserve brigades. The division is on a relatively high standard of readiness due to its closeness to the French border.

40 Bayerisch Gefectspanzergrenadier Brigade

As 40.PzGren.Div this formation took heavy casualties (the heaviest of any Bavarian unit) in the defence of Stuttgart during the war. With the federalisation of the original Bavarian sturmtaktik units the remains of the unit were re-roled to become the Corps assault brigade.

Another of the old PKR's, 107.LkPzAuf.Bde is the corps recce and screening force. It is usually deployed along the Upper Rhine. It has the highest readiness levels of any unit in IV Korps whilst also liaising closely with I Korps.

The Bavarian reserve infantry brigades are very well equipped and manned by Class B reserves alone. They have inherited much equipment from disbanded units and have a stronger punch than their counterparts in other state armies - and hence are designated as PzJg units. They are independent units designed to supplement the standing divisions or act on their own. One potential role is in covering the Czech and Austrovenian borders in the case of renewed tension with France.
