We could buy, like, 20,000 of those for the price of a single Abrams... :D

I kind of get the impression that this is the expensive variant. If the whole thing was fixed together, the recoil would propel the bicycle along! :lol:

EFTF Tricycle Gunner 35 points
1 Tricycle with attached Buggy mounting Minimi Para

Size Move Close Combat Target Armour Kill
2 6” D6 4+ - 6+

Only the most skilled and daring of Belgian forces are selected for Trike Duty.

Minimi Para
Range: 30” Damage: 2xD6

Unit Type: Support

Special Rules
Fire Teams: Team 2 may be split off from the section to act as an independent unit, with the Lance Corporal acting as unit leader.

Mounted Minimi Para: This weapon is always set up in such a way that it can only shoot in it’s rear facing. If the Tricycle performs a move action in the same turn as a Shoot action, the Minimi Para suffers a –1 penalty to hit. Otherwise, any Shoot actions will gain two bonus Damage Dice, and every Damage Dice this weapon rolls will count as two for the purposes of Suppression only.

Buggy: If a Ready action is taken, the Buggy may be separated from the Tricycle. The Buggy remains stationary and cannot be repositioned. The Buggy can be reattached with a subsequent Ready action, provided the Tricycle is touching the Buggy first.

Infiltrate: So long as your army sets up second and a Tricycle starts the game out of Line of Sight to the enemy, it may be deployed up to 12” further away from the table edge.

Army List: Up to four Tricycle Gunners may be purchased for each Support slot.

It'll be immune to IEDs as the the insurgents will be laughing too hard to trigger them.

Now you see in what kind of harsh conditions we have to work.

They even forgot to give us helmets.

We could get hurt falling :D

No that's the new tank armour: Cardboard. Have you tried detonating a sabot round or using AP ammo on cardboard. Goes straight through without detonating or hurting anything. Best amrour ever nothing bows that stuff up. :lol:

That's how some British frigates survived the falklands war, their armour was so thin missiles would go through them without detonating!
