Motorized (Mechanized?) Infantry help needed
« on: 20 January 2018, 18:06:56 »
Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but here goes...

I'd like to try to add an effective 31st century (3075 era to be exact
) version of the archetypal WW2 German Motorcycle Platoon, or Kradschützen Truppen, to my military combined arms unit. However, the CBT rules on this just seems...confusing...to me, so I thought I'd ask the collective minds here for a little help with this.

I don't know if they'd classify as a Motorized unit, or a Mechanized one, but either way I need help in writing them up as part of a 3075 erarecon/combined arms unit.

My appreciation and thanx for any help here in advance...

They should qualify as motorized troops. "Motorized" covers troops using small one (or maybe two?) man vehicles. "Mechanized" covers larger unarmored vehicles like trucks and the like.
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

If you want something faster you could mount them on Tariqs and just say they're motorcycles.  :D
