PanzerGrenadiers Motorized Platoon?
« on: 16 October 2018, 22:02:16 »
I am planning to add a motorized infantry company based on a rough blending of both WWII and Modern German PanzerGrenadiers to my mercenary unit, and after doing just a bit of research worked THIS unit up in MegaMekLab. I'm looking for input as the whether or not this unit is done right as a PanzerGrenadier-type motorized infantry squad (?), and how many of them would I need to for a proper company?

Well the MILAN/Spike-ATGM that I posted on the other thread would most likely support your SRM weapon, after all they need 4 to move, and do 1.08 damage each. Up to the range of 2 or 6 hexes out.

You'd only need to use one to fire and three more to move, allowing the last three to fire / overwatch on the move when dismounted. AND you could also use that SRM variant Rock Rover to simulate this weapon on the move!

Regrettably I don't have the book you referenced, so I tried this using MegaMekLab instead.

Only 2 squads?

I feel like you can go up to 4 for a full 28 troops.

Unless its your goal to fit this "demi-platoon" in the same space a Foot Platoon would normally occupy.

Otherwise it looks solid enough.

Any chance you have stats on that? I can't seem to find it or duplicate it in MegaMekLab?
