Hi all the penultimate unit for my Finns. I thought they deserved their own
little article, as despite being 7 stands strong (apologies for only showing 6
stands forgot one in my box!) they have a real tactical use which I think
deserves a highlight.
These chaps are either FV (grey wolf) or CV (lapin sota) and are rifle
panzerfaust. They are therefore perfect for anti tank up close. The two main
use I’ve found for them are these – objective holding, ambushing.
sitting these guys on an objective is a great deterrent, I will normally mix
them with a regular infantry platoon, able to add to defensive fire, but also
not be hit in the first charge into combat.
in many terrain areas, and suddenly around woods and buildings it’s a complete
no go area! Even with recon it will limit your opponents manoeuvrability. If
they do stray too close you can pop out
and if lucky assault units from cover!
