Infantry unit weight questions
« on: 23 January 2019, 07:05:45 »
A quick question, but how does the infantry unit weights listed in Total Warfare and Tech Manual actually map to the weights given for vehicle Infantry Bay/Infantry Compartments for purposes of calculating how large a Bay/Compartment needs to be to actually carry a given type of infantry squad?   I had been told previously that one squad of infantry needs and Infantry Bay/Compartment of 1 ton to carry it.   When I try to crunch those numbers through the rules listed, it tends to fall apart.   When designing an Infantry APC, therefore, is there a standardized weight allowance that ignores the infantry type carried or do the infantry types need to be taken into account when designing the vehicle to begin with?
