I am playing the demo scenario where the Germans have an MG42. But the scenario doesn't say if it's a tripod enabled version or not. This makes a small difference since there exists two versions of the MG42 amongst the included counters; one MG42 with tripod/bipod on opposite sides, and one with MG42/MG34 bipod on opposite sides. Which one to use?

Is it perhaps the MG34 that is reusing the same counter for the MG42 so the MG42 side should just be ignored on those?

Hey Jonas,

I would use a MG-42 with bipod on 1 side and the tripod on the other. Just understand that while the Germans are entering the map and the squad carrying the MG-42 is moving, it has to be on the bipod side. Then, during a rally phase when the unit is in good order, it can flip to the tripod side, but becomes immobile.
