All,

Should there be jeeps at the company level in British Airlanding companies?

Seems I've seen an official photo somewhere of the South Staffords somewhere near Oosterbeek with a jeep towing a 6 pdr.

Anyone have anything on this?

Makes sense, since the 6 pdr. is represented in the simulation's AL company's TO&E.

Thanks,
Nate

Historically the AL Brigade TO&E was beefed up with more HW's than the regular British para brigades.

We parsed out the AT guns and jeeps to separate units so the para coys wouldn't need fuel. We gave the AL Coys their inherent 6pdrs without jeeps so they can have the added punch but not need fuel. For game purposes it can be assumed that the transport for the AT guns in the AL coys (and US rifle coys, etc.) is a detached part of the rear area troops.

Simovitch,

I see. Very interesting. I enjoy the little stuff like that and why it's done the way it's done.

Thanks,
Nate

Thanks for sharing that, as it will make for lessing pulling of hair when coming up with custom estabs. Knowing that the core game made some concessions regarding game play vs. reality is a big plus in that department.
