    News Update #31: A Touch of British Class (Part 1)

    Following last week's update "A Coveted Trophy" we would like to introduce three of the British classes that will be featured in the game.

    The British squad in World War 2 was an evolution of squad tactics taken from experience during the later stages of the First World War. It consisted of 9 men; a Squad Leader (usually of Corporal rank) who led the squad, an Assistant Squad Leader (usually an Lance Corporal), as well as a Bren gunner (could be lance corporal or a senior private) and his assistant, plus 5 riflemen. Of the riflemen, one was designated a grenadier, and as such carried the cup discharger for rifle grenades, whilst another was a designated marksman (simply the best rifle shot in the squad, not armed with a scoped rifle).

    The support side of the squad, the Bren and grenadier, would stay back during the assault until the last possible moment, giving covering fire as the riflemen and squad leader advanced to the enemy, before joining in the attack themselves. On defence, the riflemen supported the Bren gun, and took turns covering the Bren gun and being covered by it if forced to retreat. On the whole, firepower was split between the Bren gun and the riflemen, with the Bren acting as a rapid fire support for the squad. This layout would last through the Second World War.

    Our illustrious fearless leader made a booboo. I have already suitably chastised him. :3
