101st Airborne recruitment drive

Anyone with the requisite load out interested in joining Dog Co for this game is most welcome.
We're trying to bring a little organisation to our battle weekends and are hoping to get a 8 man squad together. We will all have specific squad roles and responsibilities and you will be expected to follow orders to the best of your ability.
This is not about a select few dishing out abuse and getting their jollies from such behaviours! It's all about like minded individuals, coming together and organising themselves into an approximation of a WW2 fighting unit. please know, we are trying to move away from lone-wolfing and more towards fighting as a cohesive unit!
We'll be fighting with the usual collection of small arms, boosted by toting a .30cal LMG and a 3" mortar (we bring the pain)

We have 5 guys so far and adding another 2-3 would be fantastic.

BAR, Garand, Thompson and Greaser. :) Would love to use the Garand as I now have quite a few shot gun mags for it which makes its now more viable.

Hopefully we can recruit a second BAR gunner.

If your going as a "support" role a Carbine or Greaser would be small and light. I can lend you the M3 if you like.

Bar would give us some balance as ww2stu has one too. That'd give us the 30, two bars, and three riflemen We can use the Bar as flank security

quick questions for you guys, do you run the Bar as a support weapon as tons of ammo and deployed or do you just treat same as smg with 300 rounds ? only asking as couple of us may bring for the 34th squad :) and
just wanted to get it right :)

We've never really got ourselves that organised. My idea was that as we're to be dug in on the defensive that we'd deploy the 30 cal central with a BAR on either flank and riflemen in between. So in that case, I'd suggest using it as a support weapon. This would also be the case if we're on the move. A deployable support weapon as second man and tail end charlie with riflemen in between. However, if you've been any suggestions stick them up

As did most of the men back in the day, more weight meant more pain.

I believe the bipod was often thrown away too although I like it as it adds alot more weight to the Chinese Clone BAR.
