Pillbox

Post by Kevin » Thu Oct 18, 2018 2:09 pm

Hi,
Can anyone help? I cannot find a rule for using a pillbox.
How are they treated? i.e Hard cover and how many men do they hold? etc
Thank you.

Treat them as bunkers i.e. Poor shot but vulnerable to Pioneers.

Capacity depends on the type of pillbox. Page 39 of the Blitzkrieg/Low Countries theatre book for IABSM gives you four basic types of Belgian bunker; and page 85 gives you two types of Dutch pillbox. Many of the scenario packs gives you other examples.

Cheers

In the original rules they are hard cover + ignore the first kill, I think. I don't know if HE reduces them to normal hard cover, or soft cover and still ignore the first kill.
