The Missing Mechanized Unit: Assault Guns


  • I have seen this CinC referenced before. Is this a new gaming pieces company that I am unaware of?

    They’re on the market for many years.
    The pieces are in lead. (Prices are cheaper).
    I bought some tanks and armored vehicles from CinC 10 years ago.
    Details are good but the canon is fragile….so I fixed it with brass parts.

    @crusaderiv:

    cost  move attack defend
    Infantry tank (Stug III) 4    1  2   2 (Infantry attack 2 in the first round of combat if mixed with a Stug).

    Hi CrusaderIV,
    Where is the difference between an Artillery unit and what you put as an Infantry tank?
    Both move 1 space only!
    Is it a mistake?

    Is it possible that your “Infantry Tank” is just another name for a Self-Propelled Artillery (SPA) which many put at A2D2M2C5 and +1A to a paired Infantry?

    You write: (Infantry attack 2 in the first round of combat ,
    is it only for the first round?
    If it is the case, your Infantry tank is a lot weaker than a regular Artillery: A2D2M1C4, because the +1 bonus have no limits in time.
    I want to understand what you meant to be able to add it inside my summary.

    Thanks for your reply,


  • You’re right, move 1 is a typo error. Move =2.
    Yes… infantry attack at 2 in the first round only.

    I also introduced SS Panzer in my game.
    Move attack defend limit
    1   4     5         3.          (Cannot retreat)

    I used the Panther to represented the SS unit.
    Movement 1 because the Panther didn’t have long range.

    Thanks.
    Now it makes sense. Let me rephrase it as I see it:
    Infantry Tank (SPA) A2D2M2C4 gives on first round +1A to a paired Infantry only, not MechInf. Can blitz when paired to a Tank, as MechInf does.

    Is it correct?

    By the way, what is the cost of your SS Panzer?

    I can’t seem to find them online. I even tried Google search. Are they still in business?
    You wouldn’t be talking about GHQ, would you? I know that place. They got a pretty good selection of stuff. They even have decal sheets for the tiny tanks.

    By the way, what is the cost of your SS Panther unit: A4D5M1C? limited # of 3 units.
    8 IPCs?

  • OK. I’ll send you the update…


  • @knp7765:

    Hey Yavid,
    You mentioned a mechanized AA gun but we currently don’t have a piece to represent them. When AMERIKA comes out we will. At least for Germany, Japan and US.

    Sorry guys I had to do without a computer for a few weeks (long story).

    But yeah I thought around the time the announcement for '42.2 was made and that AAA units were going to be a thing HBG would start putting AAA units in there sets. I had visions of Bofors and Quad .50 running through my head. Axis and Allies Minis has alot of good ideas on what units to make for a mobile AA gun. Half-tracks carrying Quad .50 Wirbelwind tanks stuff like that. But it looks like either it wasn’t thought of or discounted. So painting some Amerika pieces seems like what going to be what I’m doing.
