includes six Nikuhaku teams & six Medium four-hole bases.
The Japanese plan for dealing with tanks was simple. They formed Tokkō or ‘special attack’ teams equipped with Molotov Cocktails and mines, relying on the superior moral fibre of the Japanese soldier to overcome matériel superiority.
The attacks by these men were know as Nikuhaku Kōgeki or ‘human bullet assaults’ because the men’s determination to destroy the tank transformed them into weapons.
You may replace up to one Rifle team per Rifle Squad with a Nikuhaku team at the start of the game before deployment.
The Nikuhaku Team in Flames of War
Human bullet, Improvised tank assault 4
If a Japanese Platoon containing Nikuhaku teams fails a Motivation Test for Tank Terror (page 143 of the rulebook) the Japanese platoon may instead continue the assault and any teams other than the Nikuhaku teams in the Japanese platoon become Non-Assaulting Teams.
If there are enemy Tank teams within 6”/15cm of Nikuhaku teams the following rules apply:
■ If an assaulting Japanese platoon with Nikuhaku teams is forced to Fall Back by Defensive Fire after the Banzai
Charge rule is applied, the Japanese platoon does not Fall Back. Instead the Japanese platoon containing Nikuhaku
teams continues the Assault. However, all teams other than the Nikuhaku teams immediately move as if the platoon
was forced to Fall Back by Defensive Fire and become Non-Assaulting Teams.
■ If a Japanese platoon containing Nikuhaku teams fails its Motivation Test to Counterattack, the Japanese platoon will still Counterattack. However, all teams other than Nikuhaku teams in the Japanese platoon become Nonassaulting Teams and must immediately move as if the platoon was forced to Break Off.
If a Nikuhaku team is within 2”/5cm of an enemy Tank team when it Rolls to Hit in Assaults they roll 4 dice per team. These hits may only be assigned to enemy Tank teams. If there are no enemy Tank teams within 2”/5cm, they roll one dice per team as normal. Nikuhaku teams are rated Improvised Tank Assault 4 (see page 169 of the rulebook).
