Re: Ongoing Rule Clarification Thread

Panzerfaust 30 "Klein" July '43 - Summer '44
Panzerfaust 30 Late '43 - Early '45
Both were in production at the same time.

Panzerfaust 60 Summer '44
Panzerfaust 100 November '44
Panzerfaust 150 January '45 but few actually reached the troops before the wars end

Re: Flame thrower teams, Close combat

"You do realise at least the US models also had a hydrogen cylinder on the back to pressurise the fuel tank?"

The US models did not use Hydrogen, they used nitrogen whish is inert, nobody used hydrogen.

Re: Flame thrower teams, Close combat

FYI, after the war the S Army did a study on the use of flamethrowers. One of the conclusions was that that contrary to popular opinion there is NO evidence that will flamethrowers explode when hit by bullets or shrapnel.

Re: Resources for campaign South Pacific Theatre

With the exception of those units that were serving as garrisons on the various islands at the start of the war, all US Army units were equipped with the M1 Garand.

Re: US Army in the Pacific

The uniforms used in the PTO were HBTs. At first it was a coverall but that was problematic when responding to the call of nature. So later they then went to a two piece HBT uniform.

Re: Japanese grenade launchers

One point on the GD squad firing their rifles. According to the US Army handbook on the Japanese Army the grenadiers themselves didn't carry rifles. That is backed up by the fact that they didn't have ammo pouches for rifle ammo. So when the squad uses it's rifles you should subtract the grenadiers ...

Re: The Breda Modello 30

The Breda Modello 30

After watching this video I am of the opinion that the Italian LMG's firepower should be reduced somewhat.

Off board mortars question

A question came up today from friend and his son while they were playing a game today; if you voluntarily stop a barrage to move it do you have to roll on the availability chart to see if it's still available? I told them I didn't think so but I'm not 100% sure.
