I was asked about AT guns by e-mail last week, I suggested the following:

My suggested stats!
  • Tank Armour Strike Features From Points
    2pdr AT gun 3 4 AT gun (TD) low profile 1939 5
    6pdr AT gun 3 6 AT gun (TD) low profile 1942 8
    Flak 88 L56 3 10 AT gun (TD) 1939 26
    PaK 36 3 4 AT gun (TD) low profile 1939 5
    PaK 40 3 7 AT gun (TD) low profile 1942 10
    PaK 38 3 5 AT gun (TD) low profile 1940 7
ATGun:
These count as TD’s and may only rotate with a Move action. Gun may be limbered or unlimbered if 3 Move actions are performed in 1 turn. They shoot and are shot at as normal tanks. All special damage counts as a turret hit

As you see, I rejected 'Small' as it makes guns harder to hit, gunners used to call themselves "Oncers' as once they had fired, they knew they would be targeted and destroyed (I heard this from a Desert/Italy/ Normandy vet I used to write to)

Sorry about the formatting, I couldn't get it to stay with the correct spacing!

Potter, do you have a link for that Lard Annual that adds AT guns? I can't find it anywhere on the Lard site.

Thanks,

Ed

You missed it - "The Cannonball Run" page 113.

It was probably just really well camouflaged (and even harder to spot if you were buttoned up)..... 8-)
No plan survives first contact with the dice.

I just downloaded the mag, the rules are much more detailed than the ones I worked out, and share many of the ideas I had!

The magazine is well worth a look at...Go Buy! :)

I was not going to buy this as there were only a couple of CoC items of interest but may have to revise that!
