Below is Bruce's comments about the Fire Team firepower. Sorry,
but the Fire Team consists of 1 SAW and 2 Riflemen.
These would be used as a DETACHMENT. The Section Firepower is
actually 7 x 2 =14 (d12) and 2 SAW @ d8. And of
course you can always fire one or two IAVR ; the section carries
about 6 of these at d8 each PLUS the quality dice!!!!!!
I gave the OU section a LOT of careful thought based on a lot of years
experience in the Infantry and the result I think is pretty balanced.
Remember the OU PL HQ is not an 8 man fighting unit like other nations.
4 men with rifles. They command.
