I think it would be 8 Handlers per 28 man platoon as they replace support weapons which can only be 2 to a squad.

What about the variables?

We know infantry can go to 10 per Squad with 30 max per Platoon. Anything else needs to be divided into more sub-units.

Thanks Herb!

A 30-trooper platoon in 3 squads of 10 would only have 6 Support Weapons or K9s...

So can a Orca equipped SCUBA (Mech) Platoon be advisable?

Aquamen! The elite infantry of the merfolk!

It is, however, a problem, as only conventional foot infantry types can use K9s, and with orcas, you have yourself a beast-mounted submersible naval platoon there. Mechanized, jump, or other non-foot troops are not valid K9 unit choices as it's too easy for the li'l beasties to become separated from their masters in the heat of battle. (We may have left the wording vague enough somewhere to "treat beast mounts as foot infantry" somewhere, though. But such does not appear to be in the rulebooks I have on hand.)

Also you really should put that Katzilla of yours I'm the California Nebula as well as XTC Infantry...

SturmTroopers and Citizens Republica need their XTC troops.

Each K9 in a squad costs the squad a Support Weapon slot.

Since it took me WAY too long to find this morning, the K9 rules are on page 135 of the AToW Companion.

I think you're supposed to use the cost for Beast Mounted Infantry, which is in TO:AUE...

I think that might be too much. There's only 2 K9s per squad compared to 1 riding animal per squad member. Unfortunately, I'm not finding costs for individual animals.

You know, I don't think we ever, even once, considered giving animals a C-bill cost...

Should give it a C-Bill times BV factor...

Like 15per value point, making it expensive but worth it.

Just wanted to know if there was one, if any.

I'd go as much as low to medium cost support weapon for each K9 to reflect training but not as much as a whole platoon of riding animals.

That doesn't really surprise me. We don't know how beast mounted infantry are transported, or how much life support animals take either.

So we've decided that animals just count as emergency rations for c-bill and cargo purposes?
