Three new sets of unit reference cards for Combat Patrol. Each set of cards contains an organization chart, together with a unit reference card for each sub-unit with all of the ratings and weapon details already filled in, so you can get your troops on the table and start playing.

Combat Patrol is designed for playing platoon-level WWII actions; this is the same level of engagement as a Bolt Action game.
