Laffly S15TOE (FR320)

Laffly S15TOE (FR320)
Laffly S15TOE (FR320)
includes two Laffly S15TOE combat cars.

In 1934, Laffly developed an armoured car in for use in the French Colonies or TOE (Théâtre d'Opération pour Exterior). The design was based on the Laffly S15 artillery tractor; armour plate up to 7mm thick was mounted on the body, covering the engine and driver compartment. The rear of the vehicle was made up of a truck bed which could be used to transport either men or equipment.

"A Tirailleurs Combat Car Platoon is a Reconnaissance Platoon."
Laffly S15TOE (FR320) The top of the vehicle housed a spherical-shaped turret which mounted the vehicle's main armament. The armoured superstructure featured a number of hinged observation ports that provide the crew with a limited view of the battlefield and which,  also acted as ad-hoc pistol ports in case the vehicle and its crew got itself into a really sticky situation.
"An AA MG can be added to any or all vehicles for +5 points per vehicle."
However, by 1942 the Laffly S15TOE's best days were behind it and it was replaced by the British Marmon Herrington armoured car.

One-man Turret
French tanks retain the one-man turret of their First World War forebears. Although this is sufficient for infantry-support, in tank-versus-tank clashes the commander is faced with the impossible task of finding new targets, and loading and firing the gun, while directing the driver as well.

Any tank with a One-man Turret that moves adds +1 to the score required to hit when shooting with its turret Main Gun. Machine-guns and Flame-throwers do not suffer this penalty.

In addition, a tank with a One-man Turret may not fire both the turret Main Gun and the turret machine-gun in the same turn.
