Despite of a great job you did I've found a little mistake. KV-1 platoon has 6BR instead of 9BR in Russian rifle divison.

In a recent Soviet Rifle Division based force I selected a battery of 45mm AT guns from Specialist Support Units. If you select a truck for towing--it adds 4 points only to the total BR, instead of 12 for three trucks (+4 per gun). Not a big deal--but when you have time.

Thanks again for the great software.

Going through the force builder for US infantry, what is the infantry gun option

I think it could be a half track mounted 75mm, but would like confirmation

Seem to have found a couple of minor anomalies in the Russian Rifle Division list for Kursk, which need correcting when time allows.

The Heavy Artillery Battery is showing as 0 BR and should be 4 BR.

The KV1 Platoon is showing as 6 BR and should be 9 BR.

Hi,

Don't know why I've never noticed this - but the print out doesn't produce a stat block for the Loyd Carrier in the British Infantry Platoon.

I've found another glitch.
The cost of an 88/71 AT gun lists at 71 points in the BG Overloard German Infantry Division list. But if you try to add an SdkF 7 to tow it, which is only 8 points, the cost of the weapon goes up to 102 points instead of 79 points. The same error does not occur under the Overlord German Armored Division units for the same weapon.

I appreciate the effort that has gone into the site and am only trying to help improve it! I wish that I could help update it. Thanks again for providing the resource.

I found a data error in the FOTR soviet rifle battlegroup.
When you select a su-battery selection of 2 su-85s in the tank section the print form shows 2 su-76's and the su-76 gun types.

love the program great work btw

Agreed it is a great program.

Found minor issue with the American Armored Division, Artillery Section. The Heavy Mortar Team lists at the correct points (29), but shows 0 Battle Rating. The book shows 1 BR for the Heavy Mortar Team.
Also, if you select three (3) M10s from the Tank Section, the print out only shows one M10 stat line instead of three.

Minor issues, but I wanted to submit for hopefully eventual correction. I again add that I appreciate all the effort that has gone into the BattleGroupBuilder site and what a beneficial aid it is for the BG rules.

Thanks to you for making the corrections and all the hard work that you put into the site. I know many of us appreciate all your efforts. BGBuilder really enhances the BG rules and our gaming efforts. If we ever meet the first three rounds are on me (and after that the rest will probably be also)!

Thanks Historical Wargamer. Since having twin boys about 3 years ago my drinking tolerance is so low that after 3 pints you could probably convince me to give you my wallet. So you might even make money out of it!


The Barbarossa Panzer Division list is up now everybody. Any bug reports welcomed.

The same issue noted above in the U.S. Overlord Armored Division (now corrected thank you) is showing up in the U.S. Overlord Infantry Division list.

In infantry list Artillery Section the Heavy Mortar Team lists at the correct points (29), but shows 0 Battle Rating. The book shows 1 BR for the Heavy Mortar Team.

Also, if you select three (3) M10s from the Tank Section, the print out only shows one M10 stat line instead of three.

Thanks again!

Just noticed that in an American Armored Fall of the Reich list that if you select a platoon of three M10s, M18s, or M36s that only one shows up in the print list. Also, the weapon for the M26 Pershing tank does not show up in the print list.

Thanks

Found couple more minor things.

In American Infantry force list:

If you select "Infantry Gun" (27 point, 2 BR unit) in an Infantry Platoon options, the weapons stats/ammo lines do not show up in the print out.

In Tank Units, if you select 5 - 76L53 guns, but forgot to change the Composition entry to 5 M4s (from 3 M4s default), the 5 M4-76L53s will show up in the print out 100 points short (i.e. as long as you select 5 M4 Shermans in the Composition and then select 5 76L53s in the box below that it works fine--but thought I'd mention it in case).

Thanks again!
