Re: Belt fed LMG and MMG

One thought I had was to allow those water-cooled MGs, like the M1917, to remain in Covering Fire until the end of the turn, rather than the end of the next phase. That way you aren't using dice to each phase. Probably not realistic but it's a fairly simple rule to implement. I'd also have them lose...

Re: Passengers, transports and shock

Are there any transport vehicles that have crews separate from the passengers? Also, if the vehicle shock for transports just transfers to the passengers, why don't soft-skin transports get shock as well?

Re: Trying to understand Section Teams

If a 2 team section loses 1 of its teams it is no longer a section and must be activated as a team using a 1. We've been playing this the opposite way. I asked this specific question about a year ago and never got an answer. I take the rule 5.4.7 to mean that any small team can split off from the m...

Re: Belt fed LMG and MMG

Now the question is: which kind of LMG is listed in that table? The US called the M1919 machine gun a LMG whereas the water cooled M1917 was referred to as a HMG. In most cases (the exception being parachute infantry), CoC treats the M1919 as a MMG rather than a belt-fed LMG. Whether that should be...

Re: Belt fed LMG and MMG

In 1944, the US army produced an Umpire Manual for their own training exercises. In this manual is a chart showing the firepower values for the various infantry weapons the US were using at the time. http://hedgehobbit.webs.com/Firepower%20Chart%20from%20Umpire%20Manual.jpg It lines up with Chain of...

Re: Official CoCulator

I've got an issue with the CoCulator and adding vehicles to a platoon. Now, it appears from the original tables that Support items are twice as expensive as the same item in the regular platoon; it takes 6 points to increase the Force Rating but only 3 to increase the Support List cost. This is repl...

Re: Rules for buttoned/unbuttoned AFVs?

In many pictures the person manning aamg is outside the tank completely. How easy is it to man the aamg in, say, sherman, while remaining inside the tank? Or is it doable at all? Originally, Shermans came out of the factory with the AA MG mounted on the rear of the turret. So you could use it witho...

Re: Rules for buttoned/unbuttoned AFVs?

So an Sdkfz222 appears to be the only "open turret" vehicle in the lists - and whilst the Sdkfz 251 is "open bodied" whilst the M5 and Bren Carrier aren't! There are no mentions of open topped vehicles in the US list either, even though quite a few of them are. I think that screen on top of the 234...

Re: Big CoC Game Update

I agree with Mike - I do not think the intention is for an Infantry NCO to be able to direct tanks by activating them. I still see no logical reason why a SL can activate an anti-tank gun that is part of the anti-tank platoon of the rifle battalion's HQ company but not activate an assault gun that ...

Re: Big CoC Game Update

My opinion is that an afv Is an asset given a mission but still reporting to its origin command. The same could be said of anti-tank guns, infantry guns, and some MMG teams, yet these can be activated by SLs (if in the same battalion, of course). To be clear, a SL cannot activate a JL in a vehicle ...
