Motorized infantry are transported in trucks. As with armoured infantry, there is no need to track their mounted or dismounted status. Assume that they dismount to fight and mount to move.
Motorized Infantry Statistics
More maneuverable than normal infantry, motorized infantry can respond rapidly to enemy movement.
Targeting Motorized Infantry
Motorized infantry are targeted with FP and cannot be targeted with AT fire. Their transports are part of the infantry unit and cannot be targeted separately. If the infantry are Dispersed, their transports are also Dispersed.
Motorized infantry move at Slow Speed. They move at Average Speed when using Rapid Deployment.
As they are transported in vehicles, motorized infantry are subject to vehicle break-downs when using Rapid Deployment. A unit’s reliability is determined by its transport vehicle.
Motorized infantry can use Rapid Deployment.
Motorized Infantry Example
Type: Motorized Infantry
Move: Slow (Average)
Weapon: Rifles and machine guns
- Range: 4/8/16
- FP: 5D AT: –
- Range: 1/2/3
- FP: – AT: 5D
Notes: Firepower Suppression. Rapid Deployment. Deployed anti-tank teams. Going to Ground.
Firepower Suppression: Panzergrenadiers have more machine guns per platoon than normal German infantry giving them the Firepower Suppression ability.
Rapid Deployment: The panzergrenadier’s move increases to Average (6+D”) when they use Rapid Deployment.
Deployed Anti-tank Teams: Motorized infantry can deploy their Anti-tank teams.
Going to Ground: Motorized infantry benefit from Going to Ground.
