That's not surprising -- before I was medically retired, I gave my Chaplain my AR-15 and Beretta. He was an avid target shooter, and he promised to also use it the way I often did -- to take troops with marksmanship problems out to the range and help them brush up. (I knew the laws in the state of Texas; the mentally-ill cannot own firearms for the most part, so there was no point in taking them home. They got put to good use by giving them to the Chaplain.)

Group,

It would also be helpful, but not strictly necessary, to include experience levels (C/T/V/E) for these small units. (Presumably all PCs are "Elite" in some sense!)

Along those lines, anyone ever conduct battles using the Riverine/Mega/Miniatures combat systems (in Vistula, Warsaw, Challenge #25 respectfully)? Or Last Battle?

Tony

I remember using them for Vistula and Warsaw-1. They seemed to work OK, not taking an excessive amount of time. It was a long time ago, but I can't remember anything awful standing out.

This is Wartime Platoon Organization in my campaign.

This allows the Platoon to be somewhat self-sufficient and capable of operating independently for extended periods of time. The HQ Section of the Platoon was spread out into the three sections thus making the entire platoon as combat capable.

And was actually the positions personnel were filling in my first T2k campaign back in 1989... We had several non-combatant officers who were taking orders from senior non-commissioned officers to get on-the-job training that would allow them to fill combat command billets.

With personnel being drawn form the support branches I did not put ranks in this, because the personnel are put in positions that they are qualified to fill... Thus you could have a 1LT as Platoon Commander and a CPT from a non-combat support arm filling other positions (section leader or the platoon sergeant position) until they can get their qualifications to 'cross-deck' or 'lateral transfer' into a combat command billet.

Section 1:
Platoon Commander:
PLT LDR Radio-Telephone Operator
Forward Observer
Combat Field Medic Supervisor
Designated Marksman
Fire Team Leader 1A
Grenadier 1A
Automatic Rifleman 1A
Rifleman 1A
Fire Team Leader 1B
Grenadier 1B
Automatic Rifleman 1B
Rifleman 1B
Machinegun Gunner 1
Assist. MG Gunner 1
MG Ammo Bearer 1

Section 2:
Platoon Sergeant
PSG Radio-Telephone Operator
Forward Observer
Combat Field Medic
Designated Marksman
Fire Team Leader 2A
Grenadier 2A
Automatic Rifleman 2A
Rifleman 2A
Fire Team Leader 2B
Grenadier 2B
Automatic Rifleman 2B
Rifleman 2B
Machinegun Gunner 2
Assist. MG Gunner 2
MG Ammo Bearer 2

Section 3:
Squad/Section Leader
Radio-Telephone Operator
Forward Observer
Combat Field Medic
Designated Marksman
Fire Team Leader 3A
Grenadier 3A
Automatic Rifleman 3A
Rifleman 3A
Fire Team Leader 3B
Grenadier 3B
Automatic Rifleman 3B
Rifleman 3B
Machinegun Gunner 3
Assist. MG Gunner 3
MG Ammo Bearer 3

The Designated Marksman and Forward Observer in each section operate as a Sniper/Spotter team. Some might add a third to the team to act as a Flanker or rear guard.

I used to have great charts that simulated everything (that I had stats for at the time, whether official or stuff I made up) for Last Battle. They took into account personal skills, too. I can't find them now, even though it seems I've turned this house upside down, but they have to be here somewhere.

I really do prefer Last Battle for mass combat, or even moderately-sized combat.

Mike,

Following is my favourite version, a more gospel-sounding one than usual.

I heard it playing Fallout 3, running the mod "More of the Same", which adds a 100-song playlist to GNR with music of the original playlist's era and themes.
