Hey folks,
I'm looking for ideas for my Americans. I have 3 Shermans (I know I know), a howitzer and infantry from the starter kit and the Nissei. I was thinking of a deuce and a half or two. Do you have any suggestions?

Sorry Scott. It's for bolt action.

Easy. You being serious? I already have a howitzer and I have been underwhelmed. I have noticed that my Americans are very slow and thinking maybe transports?

In my experience the 2 1/2 truck is kind of overkill because of its large transport capacity. Consider the Dodge 3/4 as its cheaper and has less extraneous transport space.

The Chaffee is a pretty good light tank. It’s a cheaper Sherman. The Greyhound is another solid choice for an armored car. A MMG jeep is a classic for putting pins down on some axis jerks.

Thought for the day: Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

CustomLime,

Thanks for the solid advice! I haven't used a a transport yet. Can a transport carry only one unit per transport or multiple?

Multiple units. As long as you have the transport capacity you can stuff as many different units as you want.
