Re: 9"/18" SMGs

Yes it would mess up the whole game. The way it could be done is to restrict SMG dice to 1 after the 12", making the dice range dependable like other weapons. Personally I think you would have to relook at the whole arsenal table, the Assault Rifle is capped at 48" or 160 yards. I think that's a bit...

Re: 9"/18" SMGs

The Russian Combat Regulations gives some interesting figures. It includes a cautionary note on ammunition expenditure, as noted by jon above. However its Maximum Range is noted at 500 metres its effective at 100 metres ROF 30 to 100 RPM. To quote directly: THE SUBMACHINEGUN IS AN EFFECTIVE WEAPON F...

Re: 9"/18" SMGs

I don't think the ground scale in COC is meant to be exact, more what seemed right. Likewise the small arm parameters are fairly wide. I for one would give the M1 Carbine its own specifications and not class it with full rifle cartridge carbines. Most people have their own views of the effectiveness...

Re: Hungarian

I have conversed with the gentleman that drew the dropbox files. I got them from the TOE group as well, they are speculative.

We need to work from primary sources as much as possible.

Is there an pdf or similar document of the 1939 manual online anywhere or the 1943 one?

Re: 9"/18" SMGs

That report needs to be read carefully, in it, only a rested Sten, firing bursts, is more accurate than an unrested rifle. It doesn't give a value for a rested rifle. The additional runs were only for the final test conducted at a moving target 17 yards away, a task for which the Sten was ideal. I m...

Re: Hungarian

Those dropbox pages look like they are from an old TTG publication, they are pure speculation and not at all accurate.

As for the variable strengths information, many nations had peace and war establishment tables which could vary considerably.

Re: Airborne troops query

British Para Sergeants were trained as a Platoon leader all British Infantry Sergeants were. These men were better trained than the Corporals.

Re: FJ42 rifle,

something like this: Firepower 2 Close 18" Effective Over 18" Re-Roll any 1's. I think it meets the more modern definition of a Battle Rifle: a rifle calibre weapon capable of full automatic fire like the FN FAL or G3. Where as the Assault rifle is a short rifle cartridge weapon like the AK47 or M16...
