(1)  The entire platoon gains HARD AS NAILS as their bonus for “doing this one for themselves”.   The other Attributes noted here are strictly evaluation from the movie and guess.  Feel free to ignore, change or add to these.

(2)  The team has NUTS! standard US Infantry Squad weapons from the USA List page 9 of NUTS! 2nd Edition.  You need to assign grenade launchers.  Kelly picked up some extra SMGs and such, so if you wish you can give everyone a Thompson as in the movie.

(3)  Each member of the platoon has a backpack with rain poncho.  This column also designates who was driving what vehicle through the mortared town.  You may re-designate as you wish.

(4)  The platoon was less than half strength at the beginning of Nancy, including too few NCOs.  Note:  The make-up of these squads is arbitrary.  If you would like to re-arrange them, by all means do so.

(5)  Kelly used to be a Lieutenant but was busted to Private.

(6)  New Skill – Radioman:  +1 for any radio communications.  Depending on Support Level, Radioman may call in Air Strike, Platoon mortar fire or Battalion artillery because he knows the protocol (though some of these may have to have been arranged before the game starts).

(7)  New Skill – Driver:  +1 for any wheeled vehicle driving tests.  (Note:  only Little Joe has Driver skill.  The others are just driving the vehicles mentioned.

(8)  Eddie’s ½ track was hit before the movie starts.  He doesn’t appear in the film, but if you want him, here he is.  He is at REP 4 because of his wounds.  As a bonus, he has MEDIC skill as there was no specified one in the movie.  Medic is listed page 28 of NUTS! 2nd Ed.

(9)  New Attribute – Hard of Hearing:  Reduces command radius by 1”. 


They had the following vehicles as of their departure:  (US Vehicles page 36 of NUTS! 2nd Ed.)
