Weapons Platoon (Winter) (US760)

Weapons Platoon (Winter) (US760)
includes one Command Carbine team, four M1919 LMG teams, three M2 60mm mortar teams, one Small three-hole base & seven Medium four-hole bases.

The typical weapons platoon has a mortar and a machinegun section but, like the GIs from the rifle platoons, your men have been known to acquire a second machine-gun section through ‘midnight requisition’ to bolster their rate of fire. Use these machine-guns and mortars to break-up enemy assaults before they hit your lines.

The Battle of the Bulge
In December 1944 the German forces were supposed to be on the back foot, so their desperate push in the Ardennes took the Allies by surprise. Desperate defence by the American and British Commonwealth forces gradually turned to counterattack as they fought to erase the 'Bulge'.

Battle of the Bulge: Allied Forces on the German border, September 1944 – February 1945
Weapons Platoon (Winter) (US760) Don’t forget that your 60mm mortars are excellent at digging out enemy troops and gun nests. Eliminate those threats with the mortars and use your M1919 light machine-guns as a base of fire, keeping the enemy’s head down while you charge in, bayonets fixed.
