Kangaroos are a special form of armoured transports. Their job is to get infantry safely to their destination, dismount the infantry, then retire to a safe location ready to pick up the infantry.
Kangaroos and their transported infantry are treated as one unit, but require two unit models or bases: the Kangaroo and a separate infantry base. When the troops are being transported the Kangaroo model or base is used; when the troops dismount, the infantry unit is placed in front of the Kangaroo model. If the infantry later mount up, they are removed from the table.
A Kangaroo and its infantry have separate statistics. Use the infantry ones when the infantry are dismounted and the Kangaroo ones when mounted.
