Dust Battlefield Unit Assessment:Allies BBQ Squad and Hell Boys

I’m sort of breaking my own unit assessment rules talking about two units that don’t come in the same box or are pretty much exactly the same across the blocs.  However, the differences between the Allied Ranger Assault Squad a.k.a BBQ Squad and the Allied Ranger Attack Squad a.k.a. Hell Boys are extremely close in role and weapon construction that it would be hard to talk about one without comparing it to the other.  In this article I will go over the stats, skills, and weapons for each squad detailing what makes each unit different from the other.  I will also spend some time talking about the Allied Ranger Platoon that these units can support and benefit from.  I also want to cover all the Allies heroes that can join either the BBQ Squad or the Hell Boys.  Finally, I will end the article with my opinions about each unit.

Unit Inspection: Allies “Hell Boys” Ranger Attack Squad

Armed with not one but two flamethrowers this Command Squad is unlike any other.  Where most Command Sections want to stay back have issued orders from the relatively safe rear area, the Hell Boys want to lead the charge into the fight.  These brave, some would say crazy, men believe in leading from the front and demonstrating courage by example.  The causalities might be high, but certainly the enemy’s will be even higher as they quickly press the attack.
