includes one Command Close-defence Rifle team, two Boys Anti-tank rifle teams, two Lahti Anti-tank rifle teams, four optional Close-defence Rifle teams, one Small three-hole base, two Small two-hole bases & six Medium four-hole bases.
The Boys rifle and the Lahti L-39 were both anti-tank rifles that both shared the nickname of the Elephant Gun due to their size, large calibre and heavy recoil.
While the Boys anti-tank rifle was of British origin, the Lahti L-39 was a Finnish design. Both weapons were capable of penetrating the thinly armoured tanks that roamed the battlefield during the early stages of World War Two but as the conflict progressed so did tank design and the anti-tank rifle quickly became obsolete.
The lack of anti-tank weapons in the army has forced the formation of infantry Lähitorjunta (anti-tank) or Close-defence teams. These are armed with molotov cocktails, explosives, and rifles, and trained to destroy tanks in close assault. Only the bravest men serve in these teams.
