M109 Field Artillery Battery (TUBX04) Includes three resin and metal American M109 Self-propelled Howitzers, one laser-cut acrylic Minefield token, and one Unit Card.
The excellence of the M109 self-propelled howitzer is evidenced by the fact that it is used by every Western army on NATO’s Central Front apart from the French. The M185 155mm howitzer fires a wide variety of ammunition, including conventional high explosive, DPICM (Dual-Purpose Improved Conventional Munitions) bomblets, scatterable minelets, and Copperhead laser-guided projectiles out to a range of 18 km (11 miles).

Minelets Minelet rounds such as FASCAM (Family of Scatterable Mines) are artillery shells filled with small mines. An artillery bombardment can create a minefield on the fly.
Once per game an Artillery Unit may fire Minelet ammunition rather than a normal Artillery Bombardment. Once Ranged In, place one Minefield marker within 2”/5cm of the Aiming Point for every three weapons firing. The Artillery Bombardment has no other effect.
