I lost my West Front (and EF/RS) manuals and wonder if the database info at the back of this is available somewhere? I am looking for the availability dates for each vehicle.

Is this available in the Matrix version? Also the Rarity value?

SGT Rock,

(The best damn comic book ever IMHO.)

When you download or buy the CD version of JTCS the icon has a link to the manual. It comes inside the download.

Hope this helps!

Big Dawg,

You can get Sgt. Rock reprints in "Showcase Presents Sgt. Rock." Three volumes are already out. The fourth comes out in February 2013. The reprints are in black and white.

Hi guys.
Good to see you posting Dean.

What Sgt Rock has asked for is only available in the printed manuals from early Talonsoft releases.
The appendices had the scenario names and descriptions, as well as each unit with it's range and fire effect (victory points, movement costs, etc.). I have a Matrix manual somewhere, and I will check to see if the info was included in the printed version.
That info is not part of the new pdf game manual.

For what it is worth, I was not a huge Sgt.Rock fan. I preferred "Ghost Tank".

Thanks, Ed!

It was called the Haunted Tank. Originally it was an M3 Stuart. The ghost who haunted the tank was the Confederate Cavalry General Jeb Stuart, and the tank commander's name was -- you guessed it -- Jeb Stuart too.

At some point the crew loses the M3 Stuart and goes to a tank graveyard and canibalizes a tank from the parts of previously destroyed tanks. Some of the parts look like they may be German!

My favorite was the Haunted Tank too. It took me many false starts to like Sgt. Rock, but I got there.

There are two volumes of Showcase Presents The Haunted Tank that take you through the entire run of the Haunted Tank while the crew was in the M3 Stuart and the first couple of issues after the crew turns in the M3 Stuart for their canibalized tank.
