Today its the Heroics and Ros USR2 - WW2 US Heavy Weapons code. I picked up a bag of these looking for heavy weapons for my Argentine forces, with the same reasoning that lead me to select USR1 - WW2 US Infantry as a possible option for infantry forces. Don't forget to click the pictures for larger versions.
First up, the command strip. It seems that most of the H&R WW2 "weapons" codes includes the ubiquitous command strip. These consist of two three-man command teams as below, inclusive of radio operators. Certainly workable for my purposes, but there is a little flash around the second operator from the left.
Quite a useful strip:
- One figure with flamethrower (not useful for this conflict, but he can be put away for other duties)
- Two-man Bazooka team (note that there is some sprue connecting the rear of the bazooka to the Assistant for casting purposes that needs to be trimmed - it's not some massive oversized bazooka!)
- Three-man Heavy Mortar team
- Two-man Light Mortar team
And there you have it.
The crucial item I am missing is 105mm Recoiless Rifles....more on those another day.
Tomorrow : some Argentine vehicles...
