Use of the Gurkha MTO unit from Tough Gut is preferred over the basic rulebook Gurkha or Gurkha Para units.

Now for some event specific house rules!

Infantry inside armored (7+) transports do not take pins when the vehicle comes under fire by small arms. Fire from any weapon with armor penetration 1 or higher causes pins as normal.

MMG teams (Not vehicle mounted MMGs) firing at enemies within their range cause one pin automatically, and two pins total if a hit is scored on the unit.

Tiger fear will not be in effect. Instead, all German tanks with light AT gun or larger get “Improved German Optics”, which means they do not suffer a shooting penalty with main armament when firing at long range. This does not apply to vehicle MG’s, howitzers or autocannons, only main anti tank guns that are AP4 or greater. The minus one armor penetration at long range is still in effect for all kinetic (non-HE) weapons.

This event is held at the General Patton Museum of Leadership at Fort Knox Kentucky. We all love our history and military themed shirts, but anyone displaying emblems or symbols deemed offensive or inappropriate by management will be asked to change into something more appropriate. Refusal to do so will result in expulsion from the event.
