    Question about YASL24

    In "The Flying Column", SSR B mentioned that "Japanese unit can not voluntarily move/advance/rout into board 71." But portion of the IJA force sets up in board 71, does that mean they can not move/adv/rout unless they are on the edge and can move to another board?

    Q re SP204: Yankee Pride, Error in SSR?

    SSR 2 states that All AFV that changes elevation have to make a BOG check. With a +1 DRM when Crossing road bedside. Now +!DRM on a BOG check means it's more likely to bog right? So if traveling on road is more likely to bog than if traveling in open ground? Should that mean "a -1DRM if...

    Suggestion for BFP

    I loved the themed packs that BFP does with a lot of care and high quality scenarios (i.e. PiF, Blood and Jungle, etc.). I think one under-presented theater is France '40. Is there interest (or better yet, plans) for a big France '40 pack in the vein of PiF or Blood and Jungle? Milton
