Re: Mortar barrage against buildings

Tis a good question. I think Archduke has the most logical answer. If you cointed it as both sets of 4 dice it would make thw 81mm mortar as effective as 105mm gun at knocking down houses.

Re: We have ways of making you talk - Arnhem specials.

Yes Arnhem was going ahead no matter what, from Brit para POV, they wanted some action as they had been sitting on butts since 1943.

Re: Blitzkreig German support lists

True if you really really want to use those figures 😉


Actually in those missions where the Germans cannot take any heavy support it might be worth it....maybe 😋
