Rifle Company (UBX42)

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!

Automatic Rifles
The US Army is equipped with the M1 Garand self-loading rifle, M1 Carbine, and the Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR), giving their infantry intense short-range firepower and allowing them to maintain their rate of fire while moving.


Rifle and Carbine teams do not suffer the usual +1 to hit penalty for firing a ROF 1 weapon while moving or Pinned Down.

When not Pinned Down, Rifle and Carbine teams re-roll all failed rolls to hit in Defensive Fire during assaults.
