I have just played a game suggested by Space Predator in the Awesome Stories Thread.
I used on-map 25pounders. I do not usually do this, as I consider the use of single guns at short-range and direct fire to be unrealistic.
Well, for once I did and as it turned out one gun was disabled and the crew survived unharmed.
I was then able to use the crew as infantry, as they have personal weapons, it is not specified what.
In many games in the past I have found myself with mortar crews who have shot off all their bombs. They have no personal weapons. They seem more willing to go out and get shot at than armed soldiers, so they can be sacrificed to draw enemy fire, but are otherwise completely ineffective soldiers.
