Re: British Airborne List

So I'm reading it right.
No typo?
It's TWO sniper teams,...
One in PHQ and one in the third section?

Re: USMC Early Pacific Army List (Guadalcanal)

USMC really should be 'Aggressive'.
You'd be hard pressed to find more aggressive troops in the U.S.!

Re: British Airborne List

Oh,..
And there is also a sniper in the Platoon HQ?
Lt,
Sgt,
2 with the Mortar,
2 with the piat,
and;
a sniper (team)?
So a total of TWO (2) snipers with a Brit Airborne Platoon is what I read.
One team in PHQ and one in No3 Section.
Cheers

Re: Coordination AFV and Infantry movement

No of course no did you read the links I posted - reading some of the Stackpole books about infantry combat on the Eastern Front is very enlightening? Ahhh,.. :D OK. Right.

Re: Coordination AFV and Infantry movement

I'd let him. In fact I find the whole idea of making the tank move then interrupting before the infantry can follow to be distastefully "gamey". Yet that was exactly the historical tactic used by the Germans Vs the Soviet infantry The real issue is not that you can do it and cop the results but tha...

Re: Coordination AFV and Infantry movement

Play the period not the rules. Was it done - yes. Was it a good idea? Not necessarily. If m opponent said "I am going to move this tank up with one die while moving this infantry section up simultaneously with another" - I'd let him. In fact I find the whole idea of making the tank move then interr...

Re: Coordination AFV and Infantry movement

This is my favourite bit 5‐6 Explodes, crew dead. 1D6 hits on any infantry within 4”. 2D6 hits on any passengers Of course you can train your guys to march at 4.1" from the rear of the tank every turn too :D Some first hand accounts at how effective walking behind tanks actually was https://books.g...

Re: Coordination AFV and Infantry movement

Like I said earlier Im not interested in the tactical soundless of infantry following armour (the situation dictates). I just wanted to see how it COULD be done within the rules.
The answer is right there in Chapter 4.
So that's that. :)
