I always call a skirmish game, one where you have names for the soldiers. Certainly Bolt Action is platoon level but with room for expansion.
H35 tanks were also modified with these rocket launchers

and whilst their main armament might not pack a punch, their rockets would. Just limited number of shots available (shoot and scoot).

The fall of France bolstered Germany's armored assets with many new pieces of captured French and British equipment, including the vehicle that would later serve as the Infanterie Schlepper UE (F) Mit Wurfrahmen.

The 21st Panzer Division would be the only tank division to oppose the Allied landings in Normandy. Having been rebuilt after the defeat in Africa, the 21st was refitted with a variety of vehicles, including specialist repurposed equipment, known as Becker's Conversions.

During the early part of 1944, Major Alfred Becker and his artillery command were responsible for taking obsolete, captured British and French vehicles and refurbishing and redesigning them into useful machines. One such was the French UE carrier, which Becker re-designed into rocket launchers mounting 28/32cm heavy rockets for infantry support. Its principal service was during 1943-45, with roughly 40 vehicles being made into this variant.

The multiple rocket launcher can be a very devastating weapon. It has the ability to cause a lot of damage to many different units simultaneously. With seven-plus armor, the Infanterie Schlepper is impervious to all forms of small-arms fire, but keep it out of harm's way in preparation for a devastating coup de grâce.
