I'm working on a project that will utilize dismountable cavalry and I am wondering if anyone else has tried to simulate this.

What I will be doing is modifying pack horses to represent cavalry mounts to use them as part of the players OOB in a campaign. Obviously you would not be able to replace these units if eliminated BUT you could repair them during the campaign.

To give some background, this will be a hypothetical incursion into northern Mexico by horse mounted US Cavalry around January 1941.

There is already the following in WinSPWW2 version 3.0

OOB 12 USA
Unit #375 – Calvary Transport, Class #149 Light Cavalry
Unit #405 – Calvary Squad, Class #3 Cavalry
Unit #406 – Calvary Squad, Class #3 Cavalry
Unit 498 – Calvary Scout, Class #150 Calvary Scout
Unit #500 – Dismount Cav Sqd, Class #218 Dismounted Calvary
Unit #501 – Dismount Cav Sqd, Class #218 Dismounted Calvary
Unit #502 – Dismount Cav Sqd, Class #218 Dismounted Calvary

So I do not see too much of a problem.

I would suggest you do not use pack animals as they may have different terrain crossing abilities, like not crossing rocks, water etc.
