Re: British Parachute 3 Section Sniper

Well, sniper is relatively underpowered in most cases, so I would be quite happy to let my opponent spend CoC pips to activate them :)

Re: Stug III not low profile?

Reading all the AARs etc from Rich, it is clear that CoC is more a toolset than a ruleset set in stone. If it bothers you and your co-gamers agree, make a houserule and make StuG low profile? And like others have said, just the model being lower than tanks proper often gives it better concealment on...

Re: Loss of support unit question.

I would also count them as wiped out - rest of the platoon noticing that their support gun is no longer firing does count as a bad thing in my books.

Re: Official CoCulator

Yeah, there are no hard and fast rules for creating national characteristics, so you just have to start from somewhere. Discussing here and playtesting a lot is probably the best way :)

Re: Official CoCulator

National characteristics are strongly influenced by the platoon level tactics of said nation, so a quick look to period infantry training manual should help, no matter how long nation fought in the war :) (Role of lmg in squad, how JL is supposed to lead the squad, individual initiative etc) I would...

Re: British Late War Infantry Win:Loss Ratio?

Hi,
Smoke and bren's ability to concentrate on one team (bye bye FO) are very good. They play very differently compared to germans, but I like them a lot.

Re: Mixed Platoons, On table artillery

Hi, At least normally guns and infantry would be under different cards. But I see no reason why in a scenario they could not be mixed. As for on-table indirect fire.

Up to player's preference with us. Having it under blinds card keeps their presence secret, so usually people prefer that.
