Re: Infantry Squads

What stat changes to the AK-74 would you make for the AKS-74u listed as a secondary weapon for the Grenadier in some squads? https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/7/75/Aks74u.jpg/300px-Aks74u.jpg Shorter barrel so maybe range -1 but ROF + 1? We should also not forget this fella (AK-7...

Re: Adventure hooks

As i am running a little bit different campain (see the post on where did the sheeps of gotland go) meaning more run towards the danger i am using a few fixed sites for "special" encounters, this beyond the ones already included in the book. The adventure plot is based on about 6 months play with 2 ...

Re: Infantry Squads

There are pretty good pictures of this at https://www.battleorder.org/rus-ussr-squad-graphics
i tried going by that more than the generic stats setup in the book.

Re: Prevalence of Flak Jackets

I think it's safe to assume that in this setting lots of people would make their own plates! Could be a fun mini-adventure hook or downtime activity. I'd probably give such armor a higher than usual likelihood of degrading when hit (roll of 1-2 instead of just a 1). Hey, you keep that hillbilly arm...

Re: Prevalence of Flak Jackets

There's a table of typical NPCs that just lists them all as having "fatigues". For most US soldiers I would imagine they are also wearing a flak jacket. What about the Soviets? Did they use flak jackets in the 1990s? In sweden in the 90's and also into the early 2000 we used splitterskydd 90 which ...

Re: Some general questions on the rules

Sorry if some of these have been discussed before. 1) What exactly is a "foliage" terrain hex? I would have said dense trees from the image but the terrain effects chart says you cannot use it for cover (unlike "forest" hexes). Maybe the trunks of trees in a foliage hex are too narrow to shelter be...

Re: Campaign question: How about them sheeps on Gotland.

Maybe better then a zubr we have 3. Fõrsvarets Materielverk (FMV), the Swedish government's military procurement agency, have ordered three Griffon 8100TD to be used by the Amphibious Battalion. In a competitive tender Griffon beat its rivals to win the contract with a fully compliant bid, despite ...

Re: Campaign question: How about them sheeps on Gotland.

It was never covered in previous editions and doesn't look like they are going to cover it now. So do whatever you want. I like the idea that the players are going there with the idea that they are going to link up with Nato forces, but arrive on the island only to find it populated by refugees fro...

Campaign question: How about them sheeps on Gotland.

I need some good feedback on what to do with the cunundrum i ended up with framing my own campaign. I would like to start out with that i am primarly a roleplaying GM, the simulation or realism is not an important part of my campaign, i worry about narative and a the players (aka my friends and gami...

Re: Fast Shooter rank 3

Cool thanks! That makes the rangers very dangerous in open space
If they have way of the arrow (or whatever it is called in english) they can with a powerpoint shoot 3 times in one round.
