well widely available to the Elite formations, not so much to other units
thanks everybody who voted, i need to add a token or a card to indicate the MG-34.
funnily enough i was thinking is was the 34 because the 42's rate of fire is so high that i was figuring the 42 would have 5 firepower vs infantry
It's also a matter of game balance: the German MG in TOI has range 5 fp 4. That's huge in op fire attacks already, especially when two of them combine fire (on different bases; a double MG is nearly always a very bad idea)they already roll 6 dice. While "just" adding one die seems trivial, it might well be the difference between no result or pinned, pinned or disrupted, or disrupted or routed. Now, as op fire is unlimited for MG crews...
