A mid sized planet in the northern segmentum tempestus blitzkraft is a fairly large and productive forgeworld. Although most forgeworlds are abstained from giving up regiments to the Imperial Guard and only maintain their own Planetary Defense Forces and Skitarri Regiments Blitzkraft is an exception to this rule. Much of the forgeworlds production goes towards equiping it's own regiments which Blitzkraft gives up to the guard willingly. Blitzkraft regiments have a history of being highly disciplined, well trained and excellently equipied considering the nature of their homeworld. Most blitzkraft Regiments are fully Mechanized with Chimeras for almost every platoon and a high conccentration of armored support for each regiment. The history of regimental founding goes back to early M38 when an invasion of chaos forces appeared form an unexpected warp storm. The planet was thrown into war and thanks to the stalwart defense put up by the Legio Vigilis and their titan war machines held off the chaos incursion until Imperial Guard reinforcements came to releive the beleaugured defenders and with the aid of the Blood Angels chapter of space marines managed to crush the forces of Daemon Prince Kel'mari and cleanse the planet of chaos forces. Determined never to let their planet be caught unprepared again the hives of Blitzkraft decided to offer up their own regiments to the Imperial Guard. Following the Belfast Masacare during which 10,000 Imperial Citizens chose death rather than swear alleigiance to the runious powers Blitzkraft was awarded the honor of being home to a Schola Progenium, The Schola Excrutio, to complement their new regiments, which accounts for a high number of Commisarial Officers being present in any regiment. Currently Blitzkraft is rebuilt since the Chaos invasion and more productive than ever, Blitzkraft's claim to fame is their pattern of the Leman Russ Demolisher variant which Blitzkraft's Manufactoriums produce in record numbers for distribution throughout the Imperium and their own regiments.

Blitzkraft regiments have a history of being highly disciplined, well trained and excellently equipied considering the nature of their homeworld. Most blitzkraft Regiments are fully Mechanized with Chimeras for almost every platoon and a high conccentration of armored support for each regiment. In addition the homebased Schola Excrutio provides for a large number of commisars to be present in every regiment. Blitzkraft regiment's are used to fighting in urban city and hive enviroments and are fitted as such for siege type engagements. These Regiments have no deficiencies at fighing in any other terrain though and their large base of equipment allows for them to be equiped to fight at any range or in any terrain, In fact Blitzkraft regiments are trained to fight with many diffrent weapons from the cleansing flamer to the holy plasma fires to the reliable autocannon. Blitzkraft has a very high number of Armoured regiments to call upon and tanks from these various regiments are attached to the various infantry regiments usually in a 4 to 1 ratio. Besides the Leman Russ Demolisher Blitzkraft is also somewhat famous for manufacturing the Twin Linked Heavy Bolter turret for the Chimera Armored Transport which is fairly rare in other Imperial Guard forces but is used exclusivly in Blitzkraft Regiments. Like many other Imperial Guard forces Blitzkraft regiments have their own elite squads of stormtroopers used for capturing especially important objectives and spearheading surgical strikes, trained to the highest standard they are a match for any other elite troops found on the likes of Cadia and Terrax.
++++Blitzkraft 3035th Mechanized Infantry Regiment++++
Founded along with thousands of other regiments after the chaos invasion of early M38 the 3035th is your typical Blitzkraft infantry regiment, well trained and well equipped. Commanded by Colonel Reiss an experienced CO who has seen combat on dozens of worlds he is a competent and pragmatic leader. Commisar Thanatos is the Overseer for the 3035th and wield as much if not more authority than the Colonel himself. Commisar Thanatos graduated at the top of his clBig flufy cusion from the Schola Excrutio and is the single most experienced man in the 3035th. Thanatos was actually the commisar of the Blitzkraft 1232nd Infantry regiment but after they were almost completly wiped out during the siege of Richtstagg he was amalgated into the 3035th. The Blitzkraft 3035th has seen action on many diffrent worlds and many different campaigns since their founding in 473.M38 most famous of which was the Sabbat Worlds crusades in which they defeated Mangrad the Impure at the battle of Colstaine fields. Their attached armored regiment is the 256th Blitzkraft Heavy Tank Regiment which has provided them with armored support since their founding
