Re: Lahti ATR

The Lahti is a Continuation War weapon. Hence it is not present on the Winter War list.

Re: AT Gun Class

I am going to add this for the comprehensive list I am putting together.

Small guns are light, e.g. the 37mm or 25mm guns
Medium sized guns are medium, e.g. The 6 pounder or Pak 40
Big guns are heavy, e.g. the Pak 43 or 17 pounder.

All pretty standard stuff.

Re: Churchill AVRE Petard Mortar

We have never seen the need to allow any additional reload action. We just use it normally.

If you'd prefer to slow things down then feel free to do so. I would've certainly feel different about a Sturmtiger.

Re: Fire vs crew manning pintle mounted MG

The issue I have Tom is that even with -1 killing one man is not too hard, and I find that more unnatural than treating the AFV as a whole. You will potentially get a situation where anyone crewing a weapon just gets shot down immediately. I prefer the approach that you should try to drive it off wi...

Re: Soviets and smoke

My understanding is that the Soviets didn't develop smoke grenades until after the war. Smoke pots were specialist engineer kit. So, no for basic Soviet Infantry.

Re: Play the Period Not the Rules

Not exactly insurmountable issues which couldn't be solved by asking a question.

Re: Deploy and Activate?

Hi Alan. I totally agree. I MUST be plausible. I bought a load of Perry Afrika Korps, three boxes and go a free box of 8th Army. A lunatic purchase really, far more than I need, but then I am a wargamer, so logic is optional. Picked up a nice book on the fighting around St Lo. Being a jaded old git ...
