Polish Infantry 1939

on Wed Mar 07, 2018 12:13 pm
In the Blitzkrieg list it says a Polish infantry platoon contains 3 LMG Groups, unit composition: 9 men with wz.28 LMG. Does this mean 1 LMG or 9? Just seems to be too many men for 1 LMG and too high fire power for 9.

thanks

Thank you Piers. Whats confused me is the heading 3 LMG Groups when there is already 3 Rifle Groups listed separately. Just getting used to the terminology having moved over from another ruleset!

It's an old style of platoon organisation utilised by many nations at the start of the war and by Italy until around 1943.

Yes it is 1 LMG plus 8 riflemen,Polish platoons are BIG,but look great. those BAR's well that is what the LMG really is a Belgian FN 1925 Browning copy of the American BAR modified for Polish use, are handy.
