Anti-tank Platoon (ANZAC) (VAN707)

Anti-tank Platoon (ANZAC) (VAN707) Anti-tank Platoon (ANZAC) (VAN707)
includes one Command M16 Rifle team, three Anti-tank Squads each with two M67 90mm recoilless teams, one Small three-hole base & six Medium four-hole bases.

The M67 recoilless rifle was a 90mm weapon designed primarily to be used as an anti-tank weapon. However, it could also be used in an anti-personnel role with the use of the specialised M590 anti-personnel round. It could be fired either from the ground using a bipod and monopod or from the shoulder using the fixed bipod as a shoulder rest and the monopod as a front grip.

Anti-tank Platoon (ANZAC) (VAN707) The M67 proved itself as an effective weapon, though it was primary used against infantry and fortified targets rather than actual armoured targets. However, the M67 was not without its faults; mainly its weight and size of its back blast. These factors tended to limit the M67 use to purely defensive operations.

Beehive Ammunition
A vital round for tanks and artillery in Vietnam was the devastating, ‘beehive’ canister round, named for the sound of more than a thousand pellets whizzing past.


A gun equipped with Beehive ammunition may fire this instead of normal ammunition. A tank firing Beehive ammunition with its main gun can still fire its machine-guns as it would if the main gun fired any other sort of ammunition. In addition, it can fire any Cupola MG when firing Beehive ammunition as no sophisticated aiming is needed.

Beehive ammunition has the characteristics listed below. Unlike normal ammunition, the ROF of Beehive is not reduced when the firing team moves or is Pinned Down. Instead it suffers a +1 penalty on its To Hit rolls.
