Visiting your local Army Reserve & National Guard units to play ASL.
The Schlepper (RSO) and (fairly rare, 60) PaK 40 version would be nice. Other than gutted tank hulls it was the only full track tractor that the Germans manufactured. The SdKfz 7/2 (L) that came with BFP's CoS could stand in for the SWS with the Flak 43. A partly armoured SWS is needed, though as a cargo version/tractor.
The SdKfz 11 and 7 cover the range of medium and heavy 1/2 track tractors quite adequately though the light end is ignored. A SdKfz 10 is needed to fill that gap. I would suggest a MP of 18, small size, low GP, unarmoured, a T9 or T8 and PP of 13. It could tow a PaK 40 in a pinch and was slightly longer than its armoured 250 half-brother and being open was easier to stuff a few extra bodies over its official capacity of 8. It should be allowed to portee the 3.7 cm PaK 35/36. The front armoured field conversion with the 5 cm PaK 38 is another missing item. Think of a SdKfz 10/5 (L) with a NT 50L.
The more you know, the more you know how little you know.
The rules? They have been around for years for old squad leader. All CH did is draw the rules for their use in their games from the original rules in Cross of Iron. If you have that, you have the mechanics for using them in your own DYO if you want to play with them.
I'm not questioning your honor. I'm denying it's existence.
Bounding Fire put out the LVT(A)2FS, armed with a 150mm Rocket. And of course they put out several different types of rocket-armed aircraft, following in the footsteps of Heat of Battle.
Quintili Vare, legiones redde!
I love that every other ASL game company came up with rocket weapons, I just feel its time for MMP to step up to the plate. They have enough rules to cover most of it.

Found this on the German rockets.....
"In Russia, during the winter of 1942-43, many breakthrough attempts by hostile forces were repulsed by direct fire from rocket-projector batteries"
