Infantry dismounts and ammunition settings

Recommended Posts

A few years back there was discussion on being able to select the ammunition loadouts of mechanized infantry dismounts. As of now it seems there is still no way of doing such?

Correct. The wiki entry for each PC holds some information on the loadouts of its mounted infantry in the latest update. Generally, I've found that "western" vehicles carry 5.56mm rifles, MG3s (if there's a support element), and some light AT weapons. "Eastern" units have mostly the same but some different RPGs..

I was working on a late 70's scenarios and wanted the infantry to use LAW's vs the AT-4's. Thanks for the info.

..and some light AT weapons.

Therein lies the problem. There are pronounced capability differences in said AT weapons, and knowing which PC has which type is kind of a tough task.

Some day, our editing will be complete, which will be cool. (And every A3 ammo scenario will also have dozens of Pz3 wielding troops running around. ;) )

Did I misunderstand the thrust of this?

If I go to the Mission Editor and deploy a Infantry Platoon I can (certainly in 2.538 and I’m sure earlier) right click on it and within “Options”, select “Set ammunition” and choose between 13 different types of light anti armour weapon (AT-4 as well as two M72 versions are on the list of 13).

I also have some 4 choices for the squad automatic weapon and similarly the rifle.

I can also tailor the amount of ammunition carried.

Once I’m happy I can click a check box and that allocation will be reflected across all the Infantry on that given side.

But as I said, perhaps that’s not what you are after?

He's talking of "mechanized infantry dismounts", ie the ones that are riding in PCs.

Ah the guys who come “pre loaded“ when you add the vehicle.

Yes adding the passenger’s weapons to the “Set ammunition” menu when the vehicle is selected would be great.

Knew it was more than what seemed a simple issue (given the people posting about it). :)
