4) Thou shalt not cheat call.

etc...


They probably stole those, too. Pair of magpies at that game, dragging everything back to the CP. :lol:

Well someone did... that was all that was in the ark as far as I'm aware.

There was also a trip mine designed to 'kill' everyone who was near it when it was opened. But it didn't go off. :slap:

Out of interest, any provisions being made for the inclusion of Italian forces who were part of the DAK Assault Group and present at Kasserine?

Most notably the 5th Bersaglieri Regiment.

We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."

Sorry, no. We're sticking at US 1st Div versus DAK.

If we have need for an Italian NPC in a scenario we may ask, but it's unlikely and not planned at the moment.

No prob, I fully understand that you want to keep it "uniform" but my point is that the Italian forces were an intergrated part of the DAK at Kasserine and were commited along side the german forces in the battle.

"portions of the Centauro Division, including the 5th Bersaglieri Regiment, were incorporated into the DAK Assault Group. This unit was a typical ad hock formation of the time for the Axis, composed of 53 panzers from the DAK 15th Panzer Division, 23 M-14 tanks from Centauro, 2 Italian artillery battalions, two of the three light infantry battalions of the 5th Bersaglieri Regiment, and a group of attached Italian Semoventi assault guns."

Yes, but we're trying to simulate platoon level tactics and hence we shouldn't really have a couple of bersaglieri inside a DAK squad?

They'd still fight in their own units, not side-by-side in the same one.

Besides which, as far as I know I'm the only person to portray bersaglieri in CiA and 1 of only 2 Italians who turned up for the Husky game, and the other guy hasn't been seen or heard of since, so even if it was opened up for Italians I don't think you'd get any takers especially as I'm intending to go Yank for this one.

I did consider a Sikh British Indian Army impression, as it's the only legitimate one where i can get away with my hair!

Mind you, then i've got the opposite problem of not being able to grow the requisite beard! :lol:

I'm toying with getting a look alike DAK loadout for this one.
