As a general rule which applies across all Army lists, MMGs like the Vickers do not come with a Junior Leader. However, they can be activated as a Team on a Command Dice of '1' or by the Platoon's Senior Leader who can also remove Shock.Acorn2445 wrote: ↑Sat Sep 22, 2018 1:08 pmA question on the British Support List regarding the Vickers.
The Vickers Support team appears on List 4 but has no leader. As I understand it, the Vickers would have come from the Divisional Machine Gun Battalion and so cannot be influenced any of the platoon leaders being from outside the battalion. Should they not have a junior leader with them or at least should there not be the option of adding one. There is the option of adding a Senior Leader with the '39 platoon but no way to add a junior. It seems to me that troops like that, re subordinated from Division, would have come with some sort of command element, if only to make sure they were looked after properly.
Senior Leaders from the platoon can usually command any attached infantry support weapons. It's vehicles from other formations like tanks that they cannot command.
