AK47 Summer Spearhead 
I finished off the heavy weapons bases for the Bagombo R.U.B.A.R.R.B. this afternoon, taking a few short cuts to spread my limited supply of crew figures as far as I could. The heavy weapons teams are supposed to have three crew per base, which always seems a little generous to me, so I had to stick to the rules in this respect for the sake of wargaming decency.
However, by substituting a cache of mortar bombs on each of the mortar bases for a figure, I managed to squeeze out four mortar bases, two HMG bases and one RCL base. This will mean that the mortars can form an independent four base unit if I want to concentrate their firepower, while the HMG's and RCL can be mixed in with the S/A units as additional fire support when sorting out the units on the pre-game phase.
