Russian Katyusha Self Propelled Rocket Artillery

From HBG's Russian Early War Set, this is the way to go if just need more units of a specific type or color. Available in 4 different colors, these HBG plastic Gaming pieces can be used in miniature games such as Axis & Allies, Memoir 44, or your other favorite war games.

HBG Customer House Rule:

  • Katyusha Rocket Truck has 'Preemptive Strike' ability.  'Preemptive Strike' occurs at start of Combat Move before anything else happens.  Any Katyusha unit that uses this ability cannot attack or move during Combat Move or Non-Combat Move.
  • 'Preemptive Strike' allows a Katyusha unit a one-time attack (D12 - hits on a 4, D6 - hits on a 2) at an enemy land territory adjacent to the unit's territory.  On a hit, one defending unit is removed from that territory without getting a defense roll.
  • Sea Zones can't be targeted by 'Preemptive Strike'.
  • To be clear, the Katyusha unit never has to move into the defending enemy territory to make a 'Preemptive Strike' - it may use its ability from an adjacent territory.

HBG Customer House Rule:
Katyusha rockets can attack from 1 space away firing a volley of rockets at the enemy in the next province, they can not be a casualty when the defender is rolling however if attacked the rocket defends at 1.

HBG Customer House Rule:

Attack: 2, Defense: 2, Movement: 2, Cost: 5 IPC’s

 Supports Infantry and Mechanized Infantry: This artillery unit can support infantry or mechanized infantry. Each infantry and/or mechanized infantry must be matched one-for-one with a supporting artillery unit. Artillery doesn’t support infantry or mechanized infantry on defense.

 Mechanized Blitz: A unit must normally stop when it enters an enemy controlled territory. However, when paired one-for-one with a tank, it can make a blitz movement (see “Tanks,” page 29 of the OOB rules) along with that tank.  The movement of both units must start and end in the same territories.

 The units used for these are;

Katyusha Rocket Truck
These pieces are just plain awesome!!! The detail is great and I am sure that anyone could find a use for them in their war games as either SP artillery or a specialized piece. One thing to note: the rocket racks are glue onto the truck at their base. Not all of the were exactly strait, but were close enough that they could be fixed with hot water relatively easy. I ordered Russian Brown and the color matches A&A 40 Russian Maroon.

Rocket Artillery!
I picked up 5 of these in Russian Brown (Russia in A&A and North Korea in the Korean Conflict game) and 5 in Bright Red for China (Korean Conflict game) The fine detail on these minis is amazing! There is a Katyusha Rocket Launcher on display at the Korean War Memorial Museum in Seoul, South Korea. Let's remember to support our troops that are maintaining the peace on the Korean peninsula.

Must have for customization comrades!
This pieces has good details and gives your Russian Army a bit of character and charm that out of box it just didn't quite have without them. Use them as Soviet SP artillery. Even better if you can a special rule or two for flavor. The brown color matches the out of box A&A Europe 1940.
