View Full Version : KGP I question

The American 90L is listed as having an "M4 tractor" to pull it but I cannot seem to be able to find this piece and it is not in Chapter H. Can anyone help out?
The piece is included in the KGP module, with it's Chapter H details in the footnote and on the counter. See below (information not given is blank):

During the war, the U.S. Army desired to have all artillery towed by purpose-built, fully-tracked cehicles, but their supply could never meet the demand. One of the more commonly used types was the M4 18-ton High-Speed Tractor, which was designed and produced by Allis-Chalmers. Entering production in late 1942, it was used for towing the 3-in. or 90mm AA gun, or (with different ammunition racks and a small swing crane at the rear) the 155mm gun, 8-in. howitzer. The M4 utilized chassis components of the obsolete M2A1 Medium Tank, and was powered by a Waukesha 6-cylinder gasoline engine.
The US M4 18-Ton High Speed Tractor provided in KGPII should have a 4FF AAMG using the 12.7mm To Kill number with “2” ROF per U.S. Multi-Applicable Vehicle Note O. Revised counters for these and other counters from KGPII are included in Doomed Battalions.
