Thanks for the reply, and sorry for the delay! You know how wargaming is, you get sidetracked with new projects before coming back full circle. Either way I have been fiddling around with some early war platoons, and I was wondering about company support options.
What do the company support options represent? The assets available at battalion level? Or regiment level? Or even brigade?
So for instance your 1940 French infantry platoon list.
The support company in a french infantry battalion would supply 16x MMGs, 2x 81mm mortars and 2x 25mm AT guns.
The rifle companies themselves also each have 1x 60mm mortar
As there are 12 combat platoons in the battalion, you have ended up with company choices that reflect the "reasonable distribution" of these weapons:
0-1 60mm mortar
0-1 81mm mortar
0-1 25mm AT gun
Is this how you went about it? Does that mean the company support choices are representative of the battalion assets?
