NA to WP CH though - per Q&A:

A24.31 & C11.4
C11.4 ends with “A CH automatically destroys both the Gun and its manning Infantry.” and A24.31 defines CH possibilities for
WP OBA, Ordnance and grenades. Can a WP CH destroy a gun per C11.4 from OBA? Ordnance? Infantry Grenades? Or does the
earlier part of C11.4 which requires an IFT roll preclude any form of CH w/WP from automatically destroying a gun?
A. WP cannot destroy a Gun.

Okay, so with WP, the gun survives. What about the manning infantry ?

Probably with a +2 DRM for being emplaced? (or perhaps for the Gunshield?)
If it was emplaced/entrenched, on a CH the TEM would be reversed, so +2 as you say unless OBA against entrenched (or something different if in a Cave). A gunshield is not a modifier that applies to the WP NMC, either normally or on a CH.

As Thick as Flies Playtest. So, the Marines and the IJA both start on Sugar Loaf, at bad breath distance, and both side get reinforcements. This depicts a night counter attack by the Japanese. The scenario is, "Night Lite" with IR shells that drift over the battlefield, and an LV hindrance that depicts the glow and gloom on the rest of the Okinawan countryside.

Our playing saw a lot of IJA go berserk, which was good for them sometimes and not so good on other occasions. Half the Marine OB on the hill was wiped out early, but the others, a 9-2, hero, MMG, and 2 squads avenged them and then some. This went down to the last turn, with the US holding most of the hill. Good, bloody scenario.

If night scare you off, this is a good place to dip your toe into the darkness.
