Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 40. Fallschirmjägerbataillon Willi Sänger was the only airborne infantry formation of the East German National People’s Army (German: Nationale Volksarmee or NVA). The battalion was based in Prora on Rügen island (1962-82) and later near Potsdam (1982-90). It had a complement of approximately 400 to 500 men. In 1960, four years after the founding of the East German Army, the first paratrooper unit was formed from the 5th Motorized Rifle Battalion (German: Motorschützenbataillons 5; MSB 5). On February 28, 1962, it was renamed as the 5th Paratrooper Battalion (German: Fallschirmjägerbataillon 5; FJB 5). The Number 5 identified the affiliation with the 5th Military District with headquarters in Neubrandenburg. The paratroopers were the smallest organization assigned to the land forces. The unit was seen in public for the first time on the occasion of the 1964 May Day parade in East Berlin.
