    Dinant German Counters

    Hi I found the Dinant info counters (ferries, tunnels, etc) but can't find Rommel and the AEs with the Demo charge symbols. I thought these would be included in 6.5.1. Do I need an extension, or maybe new glasses?

    EmRR Truck Movement

    Sirs and (possibly, but not likely) Ladies: Consider moving a truck from Y3 to Y4. The RR Movement Point Chart for EmRR sez crossing a RR hexside not using a RR Crossing is 6MP+COT. Is the COT for a vehicle moving onto a Hillock (1MP F6.3) included in the 6MP so the COT would be (a) 1MP [OG]...

    ASOP With Filters

    Scenario A25 Cold Crocodiles SSR2 states that ”all buildings are ground-level only". Do the buildings retain their original height for LOS purposes or are they all one level tall? This could affect blind hexes for the OBA observer.
