Armoured infantry are trained to fight with armoured vehicles. Armoured infantry include German panzergrenadiers (gepanzerte), US armoured infantry and Commonwealth infantry equipped with universal carriers or half-tracks.
Armoured infantry are listed as a platoon, plus their armoured carrier. E. G. Panzergrenadier Platoon + 251/1 SPW.
Targeting Armoured Infantry
Armoured infantry are targeted with FP, not AT fire. Their transports are part of the infantry unit and cannot be targeted separately. If the infantry are Dispersed, their transports are Dispersed along with them.
Armoured infantry have higher Reaction Dice than normal infantry.
No Going to Ground
Armoured Infantry cannot Go to Ground.
