Re: Flamethrowers in forests

Presumably it will depend on what the climate is, and also whether the Finns have been sweeping in their forests ;)

Personally I woild treat them as a normal one man unit. Ie share hits within 4" and roll on BTH.
This encourages the player to keep them out of line of fire when treating officers.
Also play the period, so ignore the BTH for the killer if playing on the Eastern Front.

Re: Transffering troops

I think it's obvious he carries the shock with him into the new team/section. The man is no less scared for being in a new organisational position.

Re: Transffering troops

My opponent informed me that the transferring wasn't a test, which I agree, I think. But yes, at that point, it's a one team section, and we should probably have been dicing for loss of a section, not a team.

Re: Soviet Paratroopers?

Glantz has a book on Soviet Airborne. Would that include it? Also, is this something to collaborate on? I've been looking for details of Belov's raid, but the only primary source I can find is Belov's memoirs.... which are in Russian, with no English translation I can find. I think John Harrel has a...

Re: Soviet Paratroopers?

Trotter, I was pondering the same thing, but from the Cavalry side, but I wonder, is a Y shaped PSC possible? A cavalry/mechanised arm and an airborne arm, joining up for either Big CoC or options for the stem?

Soviet Paratroopers?

Belov's raid of 41-2 started as Cavalry based, but linked up with partisans and some paratroopers. I've written a cavalry list, and there's partisan lists out there. Has anyone written a Soviet Airborne list?

Re: Soviet Cavalry EW TOE.

The MMG platoon I've seen was 2x tachankas, each with 2 crew and 2x5 horse mounted gun crew, plus an officer, so 15 men with 2 maxims. But there may have been more messengers etc who don't feature in CoC terms. Re your above, I'd suggest the assistant platoon commander as an ISL, rather than a SJL. ...
