Just a short entry as I play around a bit with creating a new faction for my Tomorrow's War project, using 2300 A.D. as a guide...the Scandinavian Union Defense Force.
Taking a hard look at the Ground Zero Games Scandinavian pack, and after obtaining a bit of info as to what the figures in that pack are actually carrying in terms of small arms (as you can see from the picture it is a bit difficult to discern what the figures truly look like), I have decided to add a cold weather force to my science fiction gaming.
The SUDF is organized into 28 man platoons, built on eight man sections with a command element of four men. Each eight man section has a section leader, five riflemen, a SAW (or MG) gunner, and a man carrying a missile launcher. Weapons are as follows:
G4 7mm Binary Assault Rifle (Gevär Model 4)
MG4 7mm Binary General Purpose Machine Gun (Maskingevär Model 4)
PM 7 Pilen Man-Portable Guided Anti-Tank Missile (Pansarvärnmissil 7)
Weapons and organization from the Etranger site.
For vehicles I am going to go with the Chariot tracked APC (also from GZG). I like the look and each should hold a half section. It will be called the Stridsvagn.
