CTP99,

Its both, platoons have an integral A/T weapon and battalion also one or more, depending on nationality, dedicated A/T sections, that you may field.

DB. That’s great cheers. I was wondering as to how to model my platoons.

Now I can use the limited PIAT gunners to make dedicated sections. I presume that works for Panzerschreks as well but panzerfausts are just platoon inclusions.

CTP99,

Yes, each battalion has either PIATS, Panzerschrecks, Bazookas or A/T rifles amoungst its Battalion (or Regimental) A/T platoon supports.

Hi All,

Battalion mortars.
Before in but mortar models, will the mortar tubes appear on the table or only the observer?

Regards
Darren

IIRC on the intro video Dave only had the observer on table.
Well worth a look.

Darren,

The player may choose to deploy the Battalion Mortars on table next to the Battalion HQ, to represent/remind the player of their availability or simply have them as an off table asset.
The FO is on table.

Good point DB bout reminding the players, also gives a use for at least one of my many 15mm mortar models 😊

"...on table next to the Battalion HQ, to represent/remind the player of their availability..."

In addition to the artillery support, there are the 'fubar' and 'interdiction'* markers (and possibly others?) - if done on the table, I foresee some clever dioramas being devised to represent the HQ and its various elements/conditions.

*which David slyly overlooked... :D

Will the battles for the west ww2 scenario book be a good buy for use with 'O' group rules?

I have US for the ETO.

Or would it be better to wait for future O group specific scenarios?
