Since Operation Chariot will probably never be reprinted is there any chance the Motor Gun Boat rules will be published in a new (available) product? If not any chance they could be released in a PDF format? I'd love to mess around with MGBs.

You could always just use the Landing Craft rule and give them more armaments. You might need to account for the fact that ships are always in motion but are designed to fight that way.

The MGB rules have important differences. For instance MGBs may not move into bypass [M4], eliminating the spectre of LC bypass sleaze.

Also the MGB rules probably aren't going to be of much use without the counters and the vehicle notes.

Yes, but how much was truncated from them? How limited are they?

I can work up my own counters for PT boats, E-boats, etc., I'm just not so good at working up rules.

Hi Gordon and sorry for the late reply, LFT Crew has been spending some time working on an upcoming product and I haven't been on GS for a week or so.

We will discuss it in our next meeting and I'll post something here before the end of the year.
