Re: Leader activating 'twice'?

This seems to be contrary to what Rich said. The leader who moved with the unti activated on a 1 or 2 can't use any initiatives to activate that unti since it has already been activated but it says nothing about being unable to use command initiatives to activate untis that have not already been act...

Re: Halftracks and Passengers

Something else to remeber is that German tactical doctrine was primarily based on Eastern front experience in the later part of the war. While the Germans and Western allies developed better infantry AT weapons, for the most part the Germans were primarily facing Soviet infantry with little more in ...

Re: Halftracks and Passengers

So batesmotel are you also going to change the rules to allow passengers to be shot at? If so I suspect they are going to be dead pretty quick unless of course you are going to allow moving passengers to shoot accurately at long range. 😁 Firing passengers should certainly be vulnerable to return fi...

Re: Halftracks and Passengers

If you listen to the Military History Not Visualized link in the post you replied to and then read the account in your first link, it seems clear to me that the later war German use of their gepanzert troops was primarily in a breakthrough roll in direct support of the panzers. To do this they would...

Re: Early War Handbook Queries

Did anyone query or answer why Brit mortars list 3 in 1939 list? EDIT: Was asked on p 4 of this thread - no answer I can see? Given that the mortars and FO are listed in the second List Four section, I'd assume poor proof reading. The entry in the second List Four section should be the List Five se...

Re: An Interesting Look At Russian USSR Squad Tactics and Formations

Re: Rifle Grenades Vs Armour

AT rifle grenades should be higher AP than an AT rifle but less accurate than an AT rifle or a dedicated infantry AT weapon. Maybe fire like the panzerfaust 60 and a penetration of 5?
