Fanning The Flames of War!
ok so my club now has the main rulebook and fortress europe book, my friend's army so far is a german grenadier platoon and 1 tiger tank. today i bought my first U.S. parachute rifle platoon and i'm really excited to be going into this game. my one question is if parachute rifle platoons get tanks, because i'll need heavy stuff to take out my friend's tigers. If they cant have good enuff tank hunters my other idea is to get the devil's brigade and have my 1 paratrooper platoon as support. i just read about those guys and i like them because they're a joint american-Canadian army so i could have fun using them as my people. (Canada!) i looked at their PDF on the flames of war website and they seem to have pretty much any thing you cud possibly want in support options. could anyone give advice/tips on these armies?
