US Rifle Company
The American war effort is carred on the back of its GIs. Equipped with the latest technology and backed by the industrial might of America, the GI presses forward to victory. When the situation becomes tricky, they will quickly overcome obstacles to win the field of combat securing freedom every step they take!
The Company commander leads the boys. He has many responsibilities to
handle; coordinating support platoons as well as directing his own
combat platoons. However, good training and even better communications
ensure control over his portion of the battlefield at all times.
The Riflemen are armed with the M1 Garand semi-automatic rifle and
Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR). They are also supported by their
weapons company. This gives them M1919 light machine-guns and 60mm
mortars to help them liberate an oppressed Europe!
These excellent weapons allow the Doughboys of the Rifle Platoons to
put out a steady rate of fire, whether standing still or on the move.
When well supported, a Rifle Platoon is tough in both defensive and offensive
