I got a quick question about Infantry platoons that may sound stupid to most...
Ok, If i take an infantry platoon with a command squad, two infantry squads, and lets just say two heavy weapons teams...
Now, does the entire infantry platoon have to shoot at the same target? or can i split my attacks up based on each individual listing... IE: heavy weapon teams shoot at tank, infantry shoots at one squad, while the other infantry shoots at another squad... so on and so forth.
Thanks in advance for your answers... I know this question sounds ridiculous, but someone has challenged me on this concept.
Each "listing" as you called it may shoot at a different target. The Platoon Command Squad; the Infantry Squads, and the Heavy Weapons squads. However; the whole platoon is ONE Troops Choice; and for reserves counts as one unit.

Each listing is a different unit. They all act as an independent unit except for the fact that the infantry squads may mob up, each platoon only counts as one troop slot and they are all rolled for as one when rolling for reserves.

As they are all different units they ay split their fire at your discretion; with the exeption being "blob" (combined) squads. Combined squads are treated as one unit for allintents and purposes and as such must fire at the same target.

Where does it say they roll as one unit for reserves? I've been under the impression that each unit rolls separately for reserves.
Also, anyone know if an IC attached to part of a platoon (or other unit) comes on with it from reserves?
