Optimum Range?


Recommended Posts

Hmm, the salient point would be whether or not the PPSh'es still have ammo. If not, about 1m. Great clubs, and after used as such, they'd still work fine. Otherwise, in game, within 80m with effectiveness getting better closer. (Anecdotal and experiential, not based on tests or formulas.)

Oh yeh, good point. For God sake don't instruct your SMG guys to 'area fire' a suspected location. Eleven guys firing roughly a thousand rounds per minute equals an ammo-free squad inside of one turn. Better to run 'em up and have them shoot the enemy as they spot them.

What is the the most effective killing range for a a Russian squad loaded with smgs?

120 meters or so, they'll do damage.

At roughly 75 meters, they'll chew through any equivalent formation in under a turn.

Within 30 meters, its pretty much a meatgrinder for long pig.

"Target briefly" + "Assault"

All the answers prior assume he's asking at what range the SMG squad effectively kills and I agree that's likely what he wants, but it is worded just ambiguously enough that he might be asking what's the optimum range to kill Soviet SMG squads.

If terrain allows, you'd like to start machine gunning them at any range, but squad fire from 150m-200m to try to suppress them before they get into chopping range.
