    Heavy Weapons in Infantry Platoon

    Ok so my friend brought up an interesting point, if the Heavy Weapons Squad are part of the Infantry Platoon are they attached or separate, because if there attached there basically useless. Because you would move with your infantry the whole time and your weapons wouldn't be able to fire.

    They're deployed as a single Troops unit for situations like Dawn of War set-up and entering as reserves. But they function as their own separate unit. That's the case for every squad in the platoon, unless you choose to merge some or all of your Infantry Squads (and remember that Heavy/Special Weapon Squads and Command Squads can't be merged with the Infantry Squads).

    i dont think they count as moving with the platoon that would be very himpcrytical of the GW because 5th edition is ment to be more about movement instead of static defence
    that would basically mekt the heavy weapons teams useless
