Very low figure count. Game requires 3 poses per figure -- standing, kneeling and prone.

It might have been the WRG "Infantry Action Rules 1925-75" described here: link

I probably still have a copy around some where but never actually played them. Did play the WRG Armor/Infantry rules 1925-1950 that were published around the same time extensively.

Was it a skirmish set, like Tactical Commander by Tabletop Games (TTG). I think that had the three poses.

Under fire or Normandy Firefight?

Back in the day, Wally Simon used that mechanism for some of his skirmish games; they were described in several articles in "Wargamer's Digest".

Face of Battle does. I think Final Combat or Battleground do? Nuts! earlier versions had standing and prone.

I think you are referring to Patrol: WWII link
. I still have the rules somewhere in my rules vault. It is very detailed and it helps to have miniatures for all 3 stances (standing, kneeling and prone) for each patrol member.
My gaming group played it regularly about 12 years ago…

Takeda1x for the win!

It is Normandy Firefight. And I was sure I had the rules but I can't find them. (Not a surprise, eh?)

Normandy Firefight for sure. I use single figures and tokens to show their status.
