Okay, I understand NOT including AFV's in this system, but I see NO reason NOT to include ordnance and the hand-held infantry AT weapons. Bazookas were widely used against infantry targets and so were artillery/AT weapons. I would just like to see these included, and it would sure open up DYO historical scenarios. C'mon, let's at least see some bazooka counters! (Currently in the process of making my own!).


IIRC, bazookas, panzerfausts, PIATS and similar man-packed launcher weapons are frequently handled by scenario special rule.

There are ordnance weapons like mortars and infantry guns. Most ordnance weapons engage their targets at ranges longer than the average board.

Shaped Charge Weapons typically were not used against infantry as the specially crafted device created a shaped explosion designed to penetrate armor after the detonator struck something hard, like a tank.

...or a stone wall or dense woodland or the side of a house, from inside or out etc.

Christopher is correct that CC has scenarios where PIATs and Panzerfausts are used, they just don't have their own counters.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

This guy is also carping about the artillery cards in another post on the CC-E board. He's either trolling or ax-grinding.

That guy deleted the "Zzz" post; it's an admission of fault, an apology of sort.

As for his whining somewhere else about some other topic, what has that to do with this thread? If his opinions are uninformed or superficial, they should be criticized in the appropriate place in an appropriate way.

Deleting a post isn't an apology.
