    After listening to your podcast #4 I feel the need to point out several errors.

    There were no recorded instances of US Sherman fighting captured Shermans.

    The fake US tanks done by the Germans for the Ardennes offensive pretty much failed to fool anybody and were knocked out in their first fight.

    They are picklehalbes not picklehelms. Halbe = hat, helm = helmet

    Although it was influenced by “Through the Mud & the Blood” CoC isn’t a morphed version of M&B. As a matter of fact development of CoC began before development of M&B.

    Command Dice: 1 - a team can do one activation
    2 - a complete section/squad can do one activation, both teams have to do the same action.
    3 – a junior Leader use his 2 command points to order 2 actions not three
    4 – A Senior Leader use his 3 command points to order 3 actions not 4
    5 – gain a chain of command point
    6 – Variable

    Anti-tank strike, Roll number of dice only 4 & 5 count for frontal armor 4 – 6 for side armor, 3 – 6 for rear armor
    defense is always 5 & 6 count

    The Bazooka did not have a HE round. There was some development work on one but not followed through to completion. The only ammo types available during the war were AT & WP.

    The important thing to understand about close combat in CoC is the need to prepare the target try and get as much shock on them as you can, for every 2 shock they lose one dice, if you can pin them they will lose half their final count of dice.

    One the variable movement soldiers don’t always do exactly what the leaders want them to do. Sometimes the are reluctant to get up and move and sometimes they are too aggressive and move to far and get into trouble.
