Muster your forces for the big fight

Listed below are the updated force ratings for the late war forces in the original Chain of Command rulebook, and the other lists published on the TFL blog. These are based on ratings derived using the official CoCulator or published by the game’s designer.

Germany

Early War

Late War

  • Infantry Platoon Green = -5
  • Infantry Platoon Regular = 0
  • Panzer Grenadier Platoon Regular = +3
  • Panzer Grenadier Platoon Elite = +9
  • Fallschirmjager Platoon Regular = +5
  • Fallschirmjager Platoon Elite = +14

Britain

Early War

Late War

  • Infantry Platoon where the Lieutenant has a pistol = -1
  • If the officer has a Sten or Thompson then this increases to = 0
  • Motor Rifle Platoon = -1
  • Airborne Platoon = +9

USA

Notes on US forces: In the infantry platoon the BAR team should have ONE crew and two riflemen. Their list is costed accordingly.

Soviet Union

Early War

Late War

  • Infantry Platoon Green = -7
  • Infantry Platoon Regular = -3
  • Tank Rider Platoon Regular = -2
  • Tank Rider Platoon Elite = +2

Finland

Winter War

France

Italy

Belgium

Poland

Romania

Japan

I get the impression that the original ratings were based on playtesting and a bit of subjective guesswork. Now that the game has been out there a while some of the feedback (particularly regarding the rating of the German Panzergrenadiers) has suggested that they needed a tweak.
