Let's talk Jeeps!



  • really?..you’re looking at this…

    just a joke, eh!  😄 😄 from this post

    @Imperious:

    The question then becomes how many airfields did say japan build after 1941?

    If this is in a really small scale in terms of investment it becomes like a slippery slope….why don’t we include military hospitals?, submarine pens, jeeps, machine guns, cavalry, Q ships, mess halls, Beer halls, bunkers, etc…



  • Dang, I post it and by the time it refreshes, there are like 3 views….



  • Actually, an expansion for the Nova version had jeeps

    Attack 1

    Defend 1

    Move 2

    Cost 3

    I would go for that.



  • It doesn’t really fit the role of “jeep” but it does fit into the game nicely……



  • well you did get jeeps with mounted machine guns. the stats mentioned above go with that



  • funny :lol:

    OH MY WORD!!!

    how come no one mentioned the jeep to work with the little commander piece of Patton to ride around it? :evil:



  • Correction: It wasn’t a Nova expansion, it was a Milton Bradly expansion.  It included:

    Super Bombers

    Cost 18

    Move 6

    Attack 5

    Defend 1

    Jeeps

    Cost 3

    Move 2

    Attack 1

    Defend 1

    Jet Fighters

    Cost 15

    Move 2

    Attack 4

    Defend 5

    Heavy Fighters

    Cost 15

    Move 4

    Attack 4

    Defend 4

    *more to come!!!





  • you rock, turtle!



  • No need to thank me, just some positive Karma would be nice.

    It seems I’ve gained quite a few haters after I ripped FMG’s new Unit Counter Chips project out from the clutches of Rainbow Bright.



  • A&A accesories is table tactics not milton bradley

    seems i missed out on the bay of rainbow bright struggle, glad you were able to survive.
    +1 to you, 13 now…

    I meant it was made for the MB version, not the Nova version. 
    Nova version used paper, MB plastic pieces.

    o sorry



  • no prob



  • You know, a 1-1-2-3 jeep actually makes a good justification for truck pieces being Motorized Infantry at 1-2-2-4, does it not?

    Although, were there really whole units made up of jeeps?  In North Africa, maybe.  Perhaps Trucks ought to 1-1-2-3 as well.

    Well, it seems that every army needs its fodder units, so I would rather have 1 armor unit 3-3-2-5 and 1 jeep unit 1-1-2-3 for a total IPC cost of 8 than have 2 motorized infantry at 2-2-2-4 at the same IPC cost of 8, because when you lose the first hit, then you still have a 3 attacking/defending.  Now, if you give the motorized infantry the ability to be upgraded by artillery units, then it may be more balanced, but getting the artillery to keep up with them is a different matter.



  • A jeep? AND a truck?

    OK IMO the only use for such playing pieces is jeep could be used for motorized inf and the truck for something like a support unit IF somebody wanted to concoct a chain-of-supply house rule for linking ICs with Forward Edge Battle Areas.

    Otherwise, what two distinctively different units are they supposed to represent?

    A division composed entirely of staff officers and a division of storesmen?

    I agree.  If I had 30 IPCs to spend, I’d buy 5 jeeps and 3 tanks.
