The modified Stuart was a Yugoslav partisan expedient and is already in the counter mix.

Not with the quad 20mm, at least not in official stuff. There is a single-barreled FlaK38 20mm mount [Allied Minor note 22] and a single-barreled PaK40 75mm mount [Allied Minor 21].

Pic source said it was a German quad 37mm, but, as George Washington often said, "99% of what you find on the internet is wrong!"

If we could talk to the animals...
7714

Japanese incendiary bat bombs:
7715

I'd walk a mile for a camel:
7716

7717

Need to revise the Bog rules:
7718

7719

Japanese Type A Elephant. These need special rules - if shot, they just flip over...
7720

Screw the Cavalry Charge. Where are the Hippo Charge rules??? It would be like Ben-Hur, with more stomping. And much, much slower.

Interestingly tanks-encyclopedia has no mention of a single-barreled 20mm Yugoslav M3A3 like the one in Allied Minor note 22. @Paul M. Weir?

I have yet to see a photo of a single on a M3A3, so I am quite doubtful. When I think about it, a single would be a waste of a good chassis. Why swap a perfectly good 37mm for a single 20mm? If fact I suspect that you could fit a single 2cm FlaK 38 in the original M3A3 turret, if you had such a blazing hard-on for automatic fire. It would be a fair bit of work but the partisans showed they were very capable, they ended up as more conventional army than any other European partisans. My suspicion is that someone misinterpreted the quad for a single when doing the counter and notes.

What about the German fully tracked artillery tractors which only exist in Axis Minor colours?
Sure, that type of vehicle hardly ever appears in a scenario, but for the peace of mind of the completists, those counters should exist.
There are no Raupenschlepper Ost of German nationaitly in the MMP counter mix. Only Finnish.

You mean these?

For Elephants you will need Berserk rules. I have a vague memory of small muzzle loading cannon being mounted and fired while still on the elephant.

What about specific anti-elephant weapons like the Roman "Flaming Pigs" (I kid you not!), don't know about mice though. Cavalry unless, unless trained with elephants tend to bolt.

OK, so presumably SS Elephants are Fanatic vs Russians, Finnish Elephants are stealthy and have self-rally capability, British Elephants don't cower and Italian Elephants automatically surrender to mice.
