Rather like rolling one - two hundred consecutive times.

If you're shooting a Tiger with an ATR, many rules deliver that result on a range of snakeeyes to boxcars.

Yet Soviet anti-tank platoons, companies and even battalions were such a problem that the Germans introduced schurzen to stop them immobilising their tanks. The Great Cats were regularly blinded by ATR fire and even the much-vaunted Tiger that took 227 ATR hits and was still running and firing at the end of the day was little more than scrap when it returned to base.

One method to eke out the lifespan of a near obsolete weapon system is to increase its concentration, and develop a specialist doctrine for it.
That may explain why the PTRS/PTRD remained in use while the Boyes appeared to be the first thing lost on campaign.

If there was one thing the Soviets excelled at it would be concentration.

It's interesting to see vague parallels with the British and Commomwealth fighting on with their 2pdrs and later 6pdrs when something altogether bigger became available - but not yet in the desired numbers.

Want a scenario? Try Mark Felton. Odd little stories that fire the imagination.

British, French and Japanese vs Viet Cong.

What has been called the first SMG - the Vilar Perosa.

Two barrels - no waiting ... and what a fire rate!

Nice little gun! The magazines look like they weigh more than the gun itself.

We've read about Market Garden and we've seen the film footage. As far as the noise and sight of 30 Corps' vehicles marching through the Netherlands goes, this must be about the next best thing.
