hi there!
i have finish by now WWII and korea campaign and i realized that
there is nowhere in the game flamethrower weapons...

i thought about an H-P counter which will lower the cover of the card it fires on 0(no hide from the fire!) and if it would be on a jungle or forest card it should be an extra -1 to the NCM.

how do you like this idea?
i am thinking to make and print such a weapon team.
maybe in 2nd edition?????

just my thoughts.

I don't think they were used very often if ever in Normandy, so there's nothing wrong with that there. They wouldn't really fit in. There are some engineers that are available for some of the missions - those guys probably had the flamethrowers, but they're abstracted.

I don't have the knowledge to talk about Korea, but I suspect it may have been the same. No lines of heavy fortifications to deal with.

I'm almost certain Ben will be adding them in when the Marines game comes out though.

In the campaigns in volume I, the flamethrower was not used. It is included in volume II, in both the man portable and vehicle mounted versions. Marine companies were assigned an assault squad that had 2 flamethrowers and 2 bazookas. I was playtesting Peleliu mission 1 at WBC this past week.
