Hi, how do you determine which weapons are used by infantry. Specifically German rifle/assault rifle.

Hi,

The force list will tell you where the weapons are in the teams.

Hi Rich, the force list for Panzergrenadiers, gives 5 riflemen per platoon, can they be given assault rifles as some models have these. If so, is there a points cost associated & where to find it. The Master Arsenal table shows assault rifles.

No it doesn't work like Bolt Action although rhere are some lists where you can buy upgrades like smg etc.
IIRC The only 'official' published lista with AR are in the Bloody Bucket pint sized campaign.with the Volks Grenadiers.
However, there maybe some player created lists that contain them.
It might be worth reposting this query in the Chain of Command forum.

The troops are armed with the weapons they used historically which for most regular German infantry throughout the War was a bolt action rifle. The Volksturm units were rather different as TT has said.

Some lists allow an upgrade where appropriate using support points. Platoons with a number of assault rifles will have a higher Force Rating than normal platoons since the CoCulator places a higher value on them.

As above - the list tells you what thye have, they are based on a 'normal platoon' so will geernally be KAR98s with the NCO with a MP40. Some support lists will allow you to add special wepaons like MP44s but I'm not sure which might.

If you are coming from BA you will find there is a lot less choice on force composition.
