Get the pioneers to lay a trail of vodka shots in the direction of the enemy.
Sorted!

Can anyone advise on the small arm combination for a mortar crew? Would it be a K98 (with 3 mag pouches) with a P38 as a side arm? Or an MP40? Or any possible combination of the above!? Be good to get things right.

I believe that at the start of the war all 3 crewmembers of a light mortar would be armed with a Kar 98. By 1941 the TOE shows the NCO with a Kar 98 and the other crewmembers with pistols only, however I have seen pics of mortar crew with an MP40 so I think any combination would be fine.

Not sure what weapon to use. I'm bringing Mp40, Ppsh and Tanaka K98. Not sure the Tanaka will like February but would like to use it.

im not too sure what weapons to bring either. i know im using my mp40 as im an nco for this game but ive got a home made maxim machine gun available too, weighs a fair bit as its full metal real steel and really need 2 men to move it as its got a small tripod with it. not really the ideal assault weapon but it might come in handy to break up any counter attack.

If you are able to bring the Maxim, Kamerad, that would be great. We need maximum covering fire whilst the Pioniere are trying to clear the way. :good:

yeah ive seen the mg08, trouble is this sort of weapon is too big for airsoft really. somebody could turn up with a nicely tuned sten gun and have pretty much the same fire power as my maxim, plus the sten is easier to pop out from behind cover with then open up, not possible at all with a more static machine gun, maxim variant or mg08 variant! i have at least built a bullet proof shield to protect the operator otherwise there'd be no hiding whilst firing it. its quick to set up and any direct attempt on storming its position would be suicide so i'll bring it along. it takes 2-3 man team to use it. one man to carry the gun ( not too heavey), 2nd man to carry the tripod and shield in the backpack (very light) and 3rd man really just to cover the 2 man crew. its handy to have a man either side of the gun covering the flank as from past experience, the enemy has to try to go around it rather than being cut to pieces by it.

Good news kameraden, thanks to the dedication of our home front, war production has reached record levels - despite the bombing of the allied gangsters.

As a result Zweite Grenadier Gruppe has taken possession of an MG34. Herr Oberleutnant Otto von Boshmeister, please assign Grenadier Tom to LMG gunner No1 duties.

If django can bring his maxim that means all 3 gruppen will have an LMG plus one more attached to Stab to be used at the Schwerpunkt. I think this will be the first game Ive attended with the correct ratio of LMG's :good:

Yes Gordon :D ,I think with a 200 round limit the 1500 rounds for a LMG will be key to a squads performance.
