    I’m not well versed in the U.S. lists (I play Brits and Germans) but I will offer a few tips. At that sise game, stick to a 2nd Lieutenant and maybe one extra chap with him. You maintain a low point drop into him and with only a 2 man squad you gain the small unit advantage to keep him going. Next to that, if possible, take three infantry sections. This gives you some more dice in the bag and also a good spread for battlefield control. In smaller, less vehicle heavy, games I would definitely recommend the MMG, but maybe leave the Bazooka in the depot and maybe slip in the sniper team to pick off officers and weapons. As I said, I’m not sure of U.S. points, but if the rules say only 7+ armour, my assumption would be that they would be primarily open-topped vehicles, so the deficiency in AT fire shouldn’t be an issue and save you the points (even a light AT gun can be a bit of a drain). Hopefully that helps!

    Can’t go wrong with a Hellcat – 155pts, with potential Recce upgrade for an extra 10pts, it’s fits in the 7+ armoured car category with a Heavy AT gun

    I’d take a 2nd Lt with one man, Five 6 man Para Teams with Rifles, Bazooka and Flamethrower Teams with a medic.

    30 Rifles that can move and fire with a medic to keep them alive is very scary.
