I realised I've got a few period specific versions of Crossfire on my site so I thought I'd put links to them all in one place.
Ok, it isn't a variant, in that it is the standard rules, but I thought I should mention that Crossfire is written to represent company level infantry combat in WW2. And does a jolly good job of it too.
Tupara (literally two-barrel) were the double-barrelled shotguns favoured by the Maori in the New Zealand Wars. Given the devastation this weapon caused amongst their European opponents it seems an appropriate name for a Crossfire variant for the New Zealand Wars.
The rules are an adaptation of the French Indian Wars variant of Crossfire mentioned by Steve Burt on the Crossfire discussion forum with the concealment rules from Incoming! Barrie Lovell's Vietnam Variant for Crossfire.
Fuego Cruzado is a variant of Crossfire for early 20th century wars involving the Spanish, notably the Spanish Civil War and Rif War. These two wars are grouped together because the Spanish Army of Africa was involved in both. I've adapted some Spanish Civil War material from the Official Crossfire Website and added some bits of my own including TO&E.
I've started compiling some Crossfire amendments for refighting the Arab-Israeli conflicts. I've also started putting together scenarios - particularly for 1948-49.
I was prompted to muse on how to do a Science Fiction Crossfire.
