Capt. Blackadder created the topic: Question on Machine Gun and Mortar Units
When either a Machine Gun Unit (MGU) or a Mortar Unit (MU) are down to the last two figures (for the MGU the machine gunner and loader and for the MU, the mortar holder and loader) if the either unit takes a hit are both figures in the unit removed or just one? To me a MGU can't operate without both a gunner and a loader. That is how I am reading page 19 of the Rule Book, but I would appreciate some clarification. Thanks!

just 1. (Exception.. if by loader you mean the Special Personnel Loader)

and I think you should consider that the figures represent more than one individual.
By my reckoning, each figure represents about a company, and the unit is a battalion.
The board across is a divisional frontage in most scenarios.

There were many words that you could not stand to hear and finally only the names of places had dignity. Abstract words such as glory, honor, courage, or hallow were obscene. ~~~ American novelist and WW1 veteran Ernest Hemingway, in 'A Farewell to Arms', 1929 ~~~
