U.S. Army T19 Self-propelled

The T19 was a 105mm howitzer mounted on a M3 halftrack. It served in the cannon platoon of the armored infantry battalions and the cannon companies of the infantry regiments. They were mostly replaced by the end of 1943 by the M8 and M7. It does not appear in the Consolidated Arsenal. What I'm wonde...

Re: Official CoCulator

Should the Coculator include a -1 for vehicles such as the Lee/Grant or the German or Russian SP's for a casemate, limited train main gun.

Re: CoCulator calculator

Thank you for the offering. I have a couple of suggestions. The "semi auto" row had a '1' in each of the points boxes which get included in the final total. Seems to me that this results in totals being 5 points too high. Could you add the option for a transport carrying value so that half tracks ca...

Re: Pacific campaign Lists?

What of the U.S. Army? Are the ETO lists usable? Or were there modifications? I guess the Support options would need to be reduced in number. Did infantry units use the M8 Scott? Somewhere I stumbled across a vendor who offers GI's in light kit suitable for the 6th Rangers but now don't recall where...

Re: Fallschirmjager "creating new teams "

Raising a semi-related issue.... I'm starting to assemble an FJ force and am at a loss at how the FG42 and StG44 fit in. If each team has one rifleman, would giving them all FG42's make the platoon too potent? Replace the MP's with StG's? Or ignore the fancy weaponry? TIA

Re: So who's up for a Malta / Hercules List?

This resource was posted to the Yahoo group: http://estalia.crearforos.net/t3034-listas-chain-of-command It includes 1942 lists for the fallschirmjagers and for Folgore. That would be a strong start for the Axis. A member of the Facebook CoC group posted his version of an FJ list for Crete which is ...

That sounds interesting. What figures would you use for the Russian interventionists? Crimean War? Somewhere in Lead Mountain is a bag of foot cossacks. Might be s start....

Re: french in gallipoli

my info on the Foreign Legion uniform is from Windrow's Osprey volume on the Foreigh Legion 1914-1945.
The info on the Senegalese is based on a photo in the Sept., 1989 issue of Militaria magazine.

Re: french in gallipoli

The Senegalese troops landed wearing the capote and chechia. I *speculate* that they changed to summer kit as the weather got hot. The legionnaires wore their usual khaki campaign uniform with capote and sun helmet. Hope this helps
