    Did we do this correctly?

    PTO scenario with light jungle. Two Japanese dummy units in a light jungle hex. An armored Dozer overruns the two dummies. Normally, a Japanese infantry unit need not take a PAATC to remain concealed versus the overrun. We played that the Japanese dummies need not take a PAATC also. Seemed...

    cliff blind hexes

    Does a cliff hexside on a level two hex create a minimum of two blind hexes? The question is whether a unit with sufficient height advantage can reduce the two hex cliff's blind hexes to one. I think so but not sure. Thanks, Rich

    interdiction question

    A question from a recent game, see attached. The DM 237 must rout. The only path is through the foxhole. The foxhole is filled with a squad of overweight Germans. If the DM 237 cannot use the foxhole, then does that make it "open ground" for interdiction purposes. In this case, interdiction...

    Armored Assault rule interpretation

    Recently, played a VASL game where my opponent and I discovered a difference in rule interpretation. Just imagine that! Anyway, in the picture, I Armored Assaulted onto the board as shown. The infantry stopped at six hexes, then the AFV drove to the orchard hex shown. I thought it legal as the...

    SM with enemy infantry in hex

    Is a SM restricted in firing out of its hex if there is an enemy infantry squad present? I did not find any restrictions in the TPBF or SM sections unless firing a SM is attacking other units. Thanks, Rich

    CH30 HIP question

    The SSR#4 for CH30 - Kravchenko's Guards Tank Army states: The Japanese player may only use HIP for the AT Gun and crew (G1.631 is NA). I think this SSR#4 prevents the 1945 Japanese from setting up HIP Tank Hunter Heroes. My opponent thinks that the reference to G1.631 excludes HIP THH as...

    FT273 - Viet Minh 37* Inf gun question.

    Played this last week, we had a question about INF gun. The scenario card has the Viet Minh with a Japanese 37* inf gun, which is on a small counter (sw). Do the Viet Minh use the inf gun with captured use penalties? Did not find anything suggesting otherwise, but it greatly reduces the gun's...

    Area Target type CH

    A 50mm mortar rolls snakes upon a lone Russian 76L gun. It was a CH (not improbable...). The gun and crew are destroyed. My opponent rolled the effects and rolled boxcars. We played that the gun and crew were destroyed and the effects need not have been rolled. Correct?

    Moving target?

    My AFV ends my turn in motion. During my opponents Prep fire, his AT gun hits and immobilizes my AFV. His AT gun maintains rate. It fires again at my now stopped/immobile AFV. Does my AFV receive the +2 for being a moving target? My gut tells me yes as the +2 would clearly apply in my phase...

    Prep fired a 8-0, 426 and a 447 for an 8 flat. Rolled "3,3" for a 1MC. My opponent says, "not so fast", the 426 cowered. I then quoted A7.9 7.9 COWERING: IFT attacks are adversely affected by any IFT resolution DR that results in Original "Doubles" unless a leader directs that attack. The...
