    Turning covered arc when eligible to fire

    D1.83 indeed prevents using an AAMG (except a fixed one) to change TCA; thanks. About the 'old' Q&A, note that it concerns changing VCA (not TCA) by having an eligible turret mounted weapon, something the text of D3.12 does not seem to allow for. The Q&A would thus add that an eligible turret...

    Turning covered arc when eligible to fire

    See D3.12: an AFV can change its VCA/TCA at the end of a friendly fire phase if it has a bow-mounted/turret-mounted weapon which is still eligible to fire (without intensive fire), without actually taking a shot. There is a Q&A saying that one can change VCA if a turret mounted weapon is...

    Hatten CG restoration of special ammo

    According to HF 3.6137, depleted ammo of 'Guns' is restored during the refit phase. Is it correct that depleted WP of U.S. bazookas and 60mm MTRs is not restored (because these are not 'Guns')? As written, the rule is clear, but it seems somewhat counter intuitive that depleted special ammo of...

    Battalion Mortar

    As Rick's opponent: thanks for the answers. The scenario is Desobry Defiant and Rick has foregone the obvious placement of the radio-leader in the steeple to place him in the back of the field, from where he has been plastering my troops for the last couple of turns. That missed contact roll...

    HT CGI

    According to I2, the 20 GCPP initially available to the US player on January 9 must enter as reinforcements. Is the US player allowed to purchase Fortifications/OBA? I doubt the answer because at the one hand, such assets do not enter as reinforcements, implying no. At the other hand, the...

    GRENADIER´18: ASL Tournament, Germany, 31.10.-04.11.2018

    It will be a long wait till November. Will the timing of rounds 1 and 2 be changed this year? Many of the round 1 scenarios look quite large. AK

    VASLeague 2018, general discussion

    I totally diced Brian Roundhill's Germans in J188, Grab and Go, last Saturday, him breaking and X-ing out both the MTR and Hmg. To add insullt to injury, the German goalie continued the streak of 12's later that evening.

    Setting up Spotted Mortars

    Being designated as spotter does not bestow hip-status, so much is clear. However, in a situation that one uses a unit which otherwise uses hip (e.g. SSR granted; Japanese) as spotter, there is a problem if one plays strictly by the rules. Being designated or acting as spotter does not cause...

    206 Hey that ain't a ROK - NJ game day in Chester, post #1

    Thanks for the nice write up and graphics. However, two questions: "We were also playing 2.5 mp to enter the paddies (my misread on mud rules) as opposed to 3, and 2 mp to go across the banks as hazardous movement which may have favored me some." Is the MF cost to enter INTO an irrigated...

    Little principles to better your setup

    No offense taken at all and thanks for your insights. Note that J0 has some support from the ATG in I7, so BFF and/or sleaze freeze might not work. The unit will indeed not live past Russian 2, but then it might have performed its mission of stalling the Rumanian attack during his 2.
