these soldiers are mostly German ex-Waffen SS. If there was something that needed doing, they would do it. Dismounting the MG would probably be more of a fire support thing I suspect. If there is a full crew, a four man team could drop off and perform some useful functions, particularly if moving the vehicle forward might place it at risk. I had imagined that the recon unit would have its own halftrack with a support squad for heavier duty out-of-vehicle work. Thank you for your kind words by the way :-)

That is pretty cool. Do you suppose they would ever dismount the rear MG to set up in support of dismounts? I see that you could form them in light cavalry/maneuver warfare role along the lines of Nathan Bedford Forrest in the US Civil War. His motto was "Get there firstest with the mostest" (sic)

That said, you sir, are a master of armored battle sequences.

Hi, simple answer is four. However, there are eight men onboard. the 'crew', consisting of a driver, gunner, loader, and commander. That leave three seats in the back for the MG crew, and a seat up front. That would mean four men could dismount and the vehicle could still fight. However, manpower shortages would probably take away that option, leaving probably six, as four + two maximum.

How many infantry dismounts can it carry in the back? This is one of the coolest Infantry Fighting Vehicle ideas I have seen!
