BP44 Armoured Train Infantry Car
includes one Armoured Infantry Car.
With captured Polish and Russian trains as templates the Germans went about creating a standard model of armoured train in 1941. This was known as the BP42, and with later additions, the BP44. These new trains borrowed from the captured designs’ increased artillery capability over the existing German trains. They also overcame some of the perceived design flaws in the captured trains by splitting the artillery car in two, leaving only one gun on each car and thereby reducing loss of firepower if an artillery car was knocked out. Modern anti-aircraft guns and tank-hunter cars were also added making a formidable self-contained fighting unit.
Like the marines of a battleship, many armoured trains carry an infantry platoon in a specially-equipped assault car for its own protection and to clear obstacles from the track. The infantry platoon travels safe under the thick armour of the infantry car, only dismounting when they are needed.
The BP44 Armoured Train can also include the Tank Hunter Cars and of course needs some train track in order to move.

The BP44 Armoured Train Infantry Car in Flames Of War
Armour Front: 3
Armour Side: 3
Armour Top: 2
Infantry Car, Four passenger-fired side train MG (two each side)
An Armoured Train with an Infantry Car always deploys the Infantry Platoon as Passengers in the Infantry Car.
The Infantry Car is a Tank team, but can Mount and Dismount the Infantry Platoon as if it is a Transport team.
Once dismounted, the Infantry Platoon operates as a separate platoon with its own Platoon Command team.
Treat the Armoured Train and the Infantry Platoon as two separate platoons when calculating the number of platoons held in Ambush or Reserve, but both arrive together as a single platoon from Reserves.
