Need inputs! Steel Panthers WAW to CMFI unit type correlation table...ALLIED OOB.

Recommended Posts

@Blazing 88's and I are working on a scenario translation from SPWAW to CMFI. The April 1941 battle of El Mechilli. A scenario called "Gardner's Horse"...Some of these are no brainers. An HQ is an HQ of some level. Some are available in CMFI. Univ Carrier for example. But I thought I would get the juices flowing and list the Allied OOB for the SPWAW scenario here. I have done the same for the AXIS OOB in another thread.

I appreciate any advice from folks who have done a conversion/translation.

I will edit and update this post or post again with revised chart as this project progresses...

Doing some googling on these abbreviations!

ACV-IP is Armored carrier wheeled-Indian pattern. 

Fordson is just a truck. Fordson WOT. War Office Truck...

FAT Quad was a prime mover for the 25pdr FG

Cruiser IVA was a tank with a 40mm gun (2pdr), armor was 6-30mm and it did 30mph. 

2pdr portee was a truck with the 2pdr gun

What???? Better don't suggest that in an RSL Club. Just standard British is better TBH. 

No choice. Got to do it mate. It is how you get certain weapons and the historic forces but not have Brazilians standing around North Africa..
