More 1980 British Battalion Sheets, and an Options sheet

I’ve updated Sheet E on the previous British post (missing CP and S counters), and I’ll add two more sheets of 1980 British AIW factored units in this post. Sheet F are the Royal Marines, as depicted by Dan Fraser. Sheet G is an options sheet. Included are: Wombat 120 mm recoilless rifles, an anti-tank gun still used in some units in 1980. I provide a battery version, a section sized version (2 Wombats, with a AF of 15), and a “reload” counter, to be placed under an infantry unit or a vehicle to indicate that they are mounting Wombats (i.e. take a Land Rover, place the Wombat reload counter under it, and now you have a Land Rover that uses Wombats). Depending on the scenario you may find them useful. I also provide Milan launchers as a reload counter.

In most of my British charts I broke 81mm mortars down to sections of 2 mortars. You may not want that, so batteries of 81mm mortars, both foot and mounted in FV432s, are provided. A variety of AFVs, not used on the charts, are provided. Included is the Centurion AVRE with its 165mm cannon (do not allow this unit to shoot vehicles or units; the HESH shell is just not designed for that. It is terrific against fortifications or bunkers). Also included is the FV180 combat engineering tractor, and the Spartan ARV.

Included on Sheet G are commando infantry units; these can replace the rifle units in the Royal Marine sheet. There are Scorpion and Ferret reconnaissance vehicles, and 9 later model Centurions, 4 tank platoons, of the Cents that had 50mm of additional frontal armor applied. Centurions are not front line units in 1980, but everyone needs some variety now and then.

  1. I’ve played Panzer Leader and Panzer Blitz since 1978, I didn’t think anyone still played. And I live in Grayson. What is Northeast Atlanta Gaming?
