Cold Steel Practice Game 2

Postby John Thomas8 » Thu Dec 08, 2016 3:55 am

Going tropical on this one, replaying the "tank battle" at the Peleliu air field.

Japanese forces, 14th Infantry Divison:
Foot Infantry:
1x infantry company commander
1x infantry squad on foot with 1x SL, LMG+2 crew and 8 rifles
1x infantry squad on foot with 1x SL, 3 50mm mortars+2 crew and 4 rifles
He's in nominally in charge of the tank riders.


1x tank company commander+1 Type 97 tank+5 infantry riders (rifles)
4 Tank Platoons:
2x Type 97 platoons:
4x tanks and 5x infantry riders (two tanks have an LMGx2 crew and 3 rifles, the other two tanks have 5 rifles)
2x Type 95 platoons:
4x tanks and 5x infantry riders (two tanks have an LMGx2 crew and 3 rifles, the other two tanks have 5 rifles)

(Historically, the Japanese fielded only Type 95s on Peleliu, but I'm stuck running what I have.)

US Forces, 5th Marines:
1x company commander
1x 60mm mortar+2 crew
1x 37mm ATG+ 3 crew+jeep prime mover
1x M1917 HMGx5 crew attached

2x platoons:
1x platoon leader
1x bazooka team+2 crew
3 squads, 1 SL, 2 BAR+2 crew, 6 rifles

1 Armoured platoon
5x M4 Sherman tanks

That's 83 US and 107 Japanese figures.

Objective:

Japanese: Eliminate the forces encountered

US: Advance to the other side of the air field
