Probably some vehicle and weapon expensions?
Probably some vehicle and weapon expensions? Posted on [24/06/2022] à 05:44

When I talk about the vehicles, I am talking about mostly soft vehicles, jeeps, and trucks. This is just a simple discussion, and hope everyone can share their ideas on this topic.


I know there are several expansions that include these things, for example, there are British commando and Airborne jeeps in expansions, and there are also German staff cars and trucks, and American and French jeeps and trucks.


However, I just hope there can be an expansion, which focuses on only the vehicles. (Soft vehicles including jeeps and trucks, and probably some half-tracks and even tracked transports.) Personally, I hope for an expansion on the British airborne jeep platoon, and probably the cooler British SAS jeep with twin Vickers guns. However, other things are also welcomed, like the British Commonwealth CWT 15t truck, Morris C8, and Bedford. The American jeeps, WC51/WC52 dodge trucks, M8 dodge gun trucks, GMC trucks, and MPs in motorcycles. And of course, Germans, they used many vehicles, but I'm just kinda surprised the kubelwagen is not in the game yet? (I know Opel trucks is already in some expansions, but hope can see a whole expansion based on it)


I know it depends on whether people will buy it or not, so it is just a thought. But I mean, scenarios built on soft vehicles can still be cool. For example, how about the "Red Ball Express", where the US players need to protect their trucks, and they have only light-armed convoys, like Willys jeeps, and light infantry loaded in Dodge trucks. And Jerry is attacked from both sides. Or like the British assault missions with their assault jeeps. The team already introduced "Operation Market Garden" (while, kinda, there is the arhenm map in the newspaper expansion, so…) and the British tried to use Jeep conveys to break into the city, which failed, but it is still cool to see more jeeps.


By the way, another thing is the game probably a little lack on half-tracks or tracked transports? (I do hope to see Preist kangaroo and Ram Kangaroo in the Battle for Caen expansion, especially since there is a second box where we know nothing about it yet.) I noticed sometimes you can bring up a platoon-level unit, however, they always have just two half-tracks, where they should have 3 or even 4 in reality. I know the reason, even the mechanized or motorized infantry unit comes in with probably a leader and 2-3 infantry squads, they do not have transports. Only additional supports can bring in probably a half-track and 1-2 units. However, is that possible to bring in some reinforcement options for the smaller slot in all the unit cards? We can already bring in some armored cars and jeeps in that slot, why cannot we introduce some new expansions which focus on just transports? So players have the chance to actually get a full-strength mechanized platoon with both the infantry and 3 or even 4 half-tracks?


And another thing is, with the new expansion on the weapon system (like the Tommy gun and MP40), is there a chance for a weapon expansion? I m just curious about it.

As you mentioned there are a few expansions that have soft vehicles in like the extra US & German vehicles and the Civilians under fire. There is a Kubelwagen in the Germans units in new Big Red One.


If you don't mind a bit of printing and cardboard cutting there are three downloads that can be used covering soft vehicles:


The German Porsche Pack

The German Prime Movers pack

The US Transport Pack


Hope this helps.

I don't suppose you would have a link to those at all?


Probably some vehicle and weapon expensions? Posted on [24/06/2022] à 13:54

I agree though, I would much rather see this stuff released officially 😎

I remember seeing these print and play expansion years ago but they seem to have disappeared I wonder why? Could they be re introduced to the downloads section?


Old boy back in the game!

There were two SAS Jeeps and an LRDG Chevy truck in SoN Desert Wrath, IIRC


There are two Priest Kangaroo transport in battle pack 3 coming in the Caen KS


Is it getting solipsistic in here or is it just me?

Yeah, I have the SoN desert expansion, and it is really satisfying to see these LEDG jeeps and Chevrolet truck. But I hope there can be a way to build up a unit with purely these vehicles. I cannot, for example, wanna 10 jeeps, and then rush to buy 5 boxes of SoN expansion.


Another thing is I kinda hope for the LRDG jeeps in a European setting, so like the SAS jeep, commando, or airborne jeeps. Most of the time, the expansion always brings a platoon of soldiers, well with only a single jeep, which is not a very efficient way to build up the vehicle army either.


Still, thank you so much for the information. Really happy we will get kangaroos.

Well, to be honest, your idea works. I still need to find a proper way to print them on cardboard, but that can solve many problems.


I m thinking in this case, I can just print some more jeeps if I wanna see more of them.


Thank you so much for the suggestions.

You're welcome.


I just print the downloads on paper, cut them out and then buy some art card and cut it to the same shape. Then use some paper glue to stick them on.

I was wrong about the two kangaroo priests – they are in the War Stories #2 Juno Beach supplement


Also has a schwimmwagen

I've recently tried A4 matte vinyl stickers to print the box labels and I'm really impressed with the results. they should work fine on 2.5mm cardboard.


bought them from Amazon, they work for either laser or inkjet printers. the brand is Evergreen if you want to give them a look 😉

I have found the vinyl stickers work very well. I plan on 3D printing plastic the correct size and shape and sticking the vinyl on that. This process has worked very well for other pnp counters.
