Motorized Infantry

Motorized infantry are equipped with transports such as trucks, jeeps, or kangaroo armoured carriers. 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

Motorized infantry are distinguished from normal infantry by being transported in vehicles. More manoeuvrable than normal infantry, motorized infantry can respond rapidly to enemy movement.

Movement: Motorized infantry move at Slow Speed. They move at Average Speed when using Rapid Deployment.

Reliability: As they are transported in vehicles, motorized infantry are subject to vehicle break-downs. A unit’s reliability is determined by its transport vehicle.
