"A few weeks ago I did some research on "Human bullet" assaults (nikuhaku kōgeki) Japanese Suicide Anti-tank Teams. Now I have to decide how to simulate them in Crossfire. There are two parts to that: game effect of "Human bullet" assaults (nikuhaku kōgeki) and the organisation of Japanese Suicide Anti-tank Teams…"

Good special rules for an excellent set of rules.

You might want to consider adding the Japanese soldier in a camouflaged spider-hole with a 250lb bomb between his legs and a hammer to strike the fuze when a tank rolled over him.

… and, yes, Artie Conliffe wrote a great rule set.

It is a great rules set.

I'd suggest you allow the Japanese human AT "team" to operate much like a sniper, use it once and remove after dicing for effect. Restrict it's move as having to be within charge distance of it's hidden start location.

Same for the camouflaged spider-hole AT weapon, perhaps restricting it's per-planned appearance to a location (road, trail, path, etc.) that a vehicle might be traveling on. US troops have chance to detect it perhaps from a certain distance?
