I'm not sure this build has enough AV. I would swap out some BAR gunners for either a couple of bazookas or flamethrowers. Usually, I pair them with jeeps (to get them rapidly in position when you are ready to strike), so you'll need to find another 8 points somewhere. Also, three commanders for 150 points seeks like a lot. 14% of your points for commanders that don't do a lot for you. I'd keep the EENCO to pair with the garands and maybe the RDC too, but I don't know what the Marine Sgt. really gives you that couldn't be put to better use elsewhere.

Thanks for the input. This build is going to be played vs an Axis Infantry build so no AV is a non issue. I do think that a BAR & Canadian Infantry could be swapped for a Ranger Squad....or a BAR, Buffalo Soldier, M1 & Canadian Infantry for 2 Rangers & 2 Barbed Wire. The Marine Sgt. moves with the Maneuver Force, which is the Buffs & Canucks & Rangers, the SA "Fearless" vs Defensive Fire is very nice when used in conjunction with "Covering Fire" from the BARs. The BARs, MGs & M1s with the EENCO & RDC are the Overwatch Force, providing fire to permit the Manuever Force to achieve the Objective. The Rangers call in Indirect Fire from the Pack Howitzers, adding some additional punch.

It now needs the Opposing Force & Test Driven to see how it works....looks good in theory but we all know what happens once the battle begins....no plan survives that initial contact with the enemy...:D

See next post for clarification.... I forgot the 3x Rangers in it....no units are removed but the plan remains the same.

Adding the Rangers definitely gives it more punch. Their "spotter" ability (while still being able to move or attack) is a really nice combo.

Out of curiousity, I did this build using the Canadian Infantry Platoon & US Infantry Platoon formations. Match up with buys to amount listed. It equals 150 pts. You kinda get a Bazooka & Entrenched ATG for free using formations. They do save now & then.

I also have tried this group but swapping the 2 M2 Lt. Mortars for 1 M1 81MM Mortar, you lose 1 shot total but this is a rude addition...:D

Another good thing about platoons is getting to use some of the more scenario pieces that normally don't get built except when they are in a platoon.
