I think it would be a good idea if there were some kits lying around the British base on maps like Arras and other 1940 maps, and to some extent some lying around of desert maps where the British have the Boys for AT capability. The HEAT Grenades would function similarly to the Japanese ones, only perhaps a little more powerful. More information can be Googled. I say this because the Boys will have trouble penetrating some German tanks, and a non spawnable pickup kit for these more powerful weapons would be a useful diversity. EDIT: These would of course be Rifle Grenades with little to no explosion, so the infantry RG grenade would be unnecessary.

There was a model shown not to long ago of a Gannon bomb but I have not seen it in game yet.

Gammon bomb

Dude, you dont know what a Gammon looks like? Its about the size of your fist, and is moldeable. Troops would use them for everything that a grenade couldnt do.

We'll be using the no73 "Thermos" AT grenade for early war AT troops. It's basicly the size of a thermos, and its packed with high explosives. Pull the pin, and throw it. It has a precussion fuse, so it will detonate when it contacts something. It's not a shaped charge or anything fancy, its just a big cylinder of HE, so dont expect it to be particularly effective vs heavy tanks. But it will blow the crap out of infantry and light vehicals.

Bad thing about it, is it has short range (its friggin heavy) and it's blast radius is so large, its very easy to injure or kill yourself (which the real thing did quite frequently). so it's best to use in areas where you can toss it over a protective barrier so you dont acedentally blow yourself (or your teamates) into little chunks.

It will be in .66

That sounds like a lot of fun, actually.

Sounds good, although the HEAT Rifle Grenades would be good too on desert maps for a bit of long range killing.

If you did this, a good sight would be nice. One that give you some sort of indicator of how high to elevate the rifle to hit the tank.
