The incidentEdit

Early that morning of September 10th, 1962, Saltsburg incident occurred. Several rogue sections of the German army invaded the Austrian province of Salzburg (Austro-Bavarian dialect Germany: Såizburg, Standardised German: Salzburg) despite of popular protests in Bavaria, (formally the Free State of Bavaria (German: Freistaat Bayern)).

3 American Air force Hughes TH-55 Osage helicopters and a US Army Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopters from Munich Airport (German: Flughafen München), intervened on the Austrian side at 10.00 and tipped the balance in there favour.

The 15 hour war took place between 01.00 and 16.05 Bonn/Vienna Time.

The German element of surprise, both sided use of ambush as did the superior motivation of the Austrians all played it's part. After much intense fighting, the conflict ended in a draw.
