    "As Luck Would Have It" SSR 2 foxholes as rout and rally terrain

    SSR2 "A Foxhole is treated as a building for Rout (A10.5) and Rally (A10.61) purposes." Does the broken unit have to be under ("in") the Foxhole to claim the rally benefit, or is just being in a hex with a Foxhole sufficient? If a unit can reach a Foxhole hex in exactly six MF and so cannot...

    Missing Counter Series: TCA markers with change DRM

    When TCA changes for one weapon as it fires in the PFPh, enemy MPh & DFPh, and AFPh, the TCA change DRM applies to that attack (of course), but also the TCA DRM still potentially applies to other turret mounted weapons. The players have to remember which vehicles have changed their TCA and how...

    RO5 Men of Steel VC

    VICTORY CONDITIONS: The Germans win at game end by Controlling ≥ 50 more stone building/rubble Locations than they lost (or started with if they lost none). If I read this right, if the Germans lose one Location, they have to control fifty-one stone building/rubble Locations at game end. Given...

    Missing Counter Series: IPM Exempt

    The CPVA squads and halfsquads must either use Infantry Platoon Movement, be exempt from IPM, or take an IPM TC. The list of IPM exemptions is longer than the list of exemptions for avoiding the Viet Nam era draft. It is fairly common that no unit has to use IPM, at least so far in my...

    Do berserk units ELR?

    A berserk squad or a berserk leader is attacked and suffers some level of MC, then rolls a final DR higher than its ELR. Per A15.42 it does not break, of course. However per A19.1 the ELR "represents the maximum amount by which an unbroken squad/HS/leader may fail any MC (after modification)...

    Maintain ROF then pinned

    A unit fires a SW HMG during the PFPh and maintains ROF. After the attack the unit is pinned (perhaps a SAN). Can it fire the SW HMG again (at half firepower)? Or would it be using a Multiple ROF, something that is forbidden for a pinned unit [A7.81]? Yes. No. ....Perry MMP

    Using gyro-stabilized CMGs

    This is a how-to, not a question. In "Centurions Reverse!" the BCFK have four Centurion IIIs. If you read the vehicle notes you will find they are gyro-stabilized always, despite not having a "G" printed on the counter. Gyro-stabilizers help the main gun, and they also help the CMG. The...

    Daisy chain counter: is there such a thing?

    B28.531 refers to daisy chain counters. Is there such a counter? The picture next to B28.531 shows an ordinary A-T Mine, suggesting that there is no special counter for daisy chains. I can't recall having seen a special counter for them. JR

    Stuka Pinning #2

    A concealed Infantry unit is moving in Open Ground. A Stuka takes and passes a Sighting Task Check for a point attack, treating the unit as unconcealed [E7.3]. Q&A suggest that the initial MG attack also does not treat the unit as concealed, i.e. it is at four FP. The attack has no effect, and...
