Battlefront features the T27 4.5" Launcher Team for Flames of War

Battlefront posted up another feature article. This one's for the T27 4.5" Launcher Team for Flames of War.

From the article:

T27 4.5" Launcher (US590) includes one Command Carbine team, one Observer Carbine team, two Gun Sections each containing two T27 4.5" launchers with crew, one Small three-hole base, one Small two-hole base & four Large bases.

During the Brittany campaign, the 12th Field Artillery Battalion of the 2nd Infantry Division was given experimental ground-mounted T27 4.5” rocket launchers instead of their normal 105mm howitzers. The battalion found them somewhat effective, but the launcher system lacked the volume of fire needed to dislodge the enemy.
