Hi Guys

The British Infantry Div List has two infantry options which are basically my view of the 86/87 period as a changeover point in the British Army. The first option is representative of the motorised infantry platoon prior to the introduction of the LAW-80 (and L85 & L86) whilst the Saxon Infantry Platoon is representatvie of the platoon post introduction of those weapons. There you will find LAW-80 available to every section and fireteam.

Thanks

Hi Richard

i may be missing something here but cant seem to find the stats for the land rover Wombats gun.

are you able to point me in their direction or alternatively tell me what you expect the stats would be for it?

best regards

Nath

Edit: ah never mind I found the rules in the rulebook but now have a different query

I've noticed you've only given it an AP value of only 2 yet in real life the 120mm HESH round it fired was capable of penetrating(well not penetrating as HESH doesn't penetrate but causes spalling) 400mm of rolled homogenous armour making it a much more viable anti tank weapon than it currently is.

https://www.tanks.net/anti-tank-weapons/united-kingdom-l6-wombat-120mm-recoilless.html (there are other sources detailing it's armour penetration values as well but don't want to spam links)

Is the ap2 an oversight or a deliberate balancing move?

Cheers

Nath

Hi Nath

I think you might be reading the table on page 9 incorrectly. None of the weapons in that table have an AP value as they are all HEAT weapons of some description - they all use HE against armoured targets. The Wombat has a HE penetration value of 17 from 0 - 40". That's the highest value on the table.

The only weapons with a penetration value of 2 on the table are the AGS-17 and the MK-19 grenade launchers.

Hope that helps

Ah I see, thanks Richard, I hadn't thought to check the launcher table. I'd been looking at the NATO guns list instead and couldn't see it but instead on page 17 found the recoiless rifle paragraph that stated it was ap 2 so I think that's where my confusion came from

Thanks for clarifying for me

Cheers

Hi Nath

All good - thanks for pointing out the issue with the Recoilless Rifle paragraph. I think there are still a few errors in that section on Weapons of the Cold War that I need to fix.
