    Using IFT vs BU AFV

    Senior moment here. May a unit use IFT fire vs a BU AFV otherwise than First Firing, even though there is no chance of harming it? A reason would be to check LOS to the target before using Ordnance (either by an attacking vehicle's MG or by Infantry in that vehicle's Location)... Now, A14.1...

    VCA Change and red MP?

    So, someone mentioned over in Consim that nowhere in the rules does it call out that vehicles with red MP need to make a reliablity roll when changing VCA as part of a shot. Comments from various un-named authorities at least initially seem to bear this interpretation out. VCA change...

    Tiger vs. Sherman

    Great video from the Discovery Channel about the strategy used by the Allies to take out a Tiger with four Shermans. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXZ7-MteFnw&feature=related To tie this thread into ASL: Do people use tactics like the one talked about in this video in ASL? I'm a relative...

    Are Armor Leaders Under-Utilised?

    Armor Leaders seem very under-utilised to me. Infantry leaders are an irremovable fixture of the game, but their armor counterparts seem remarkably rare. Funnily enough AFV combat is made much more fun and interesting by the inclusion of a few AL. I've had combat results altered on several...

    AFV combat in ASL

    You know, I have been thinking about the ASL rules regarding AFV. It would be cool if we could have a bit more variety when an AFV gets hit. Example track hit, vehicle can't move but MA and support mgs are still working fine. Hull penetration but no serious damage...AFV still works. Turret Hit...

    Passive Aggressive AFVs

    When you are using armor in ASL, are you an aggressive or conservative player? Do you seek out enemy AFVs, seeking to kill them, or are you more content to let the enemy come to you and try to kill him as he does so? Do you tend to avoid enemy armor altogether, to concentrate against his...

    Motion/Non-Stopped

    All, If a vehicle pays to stop, eligible infantry do not pay the +2 for CC against it, correct? ie, Street fighting, CC reaction fire. More broadly, I have always argued that when a rule specifically says Motion/Non-Stopped, when a vehicle pays the stop MP, it no longer applies. Example...

    AFVs

    I've read several posts stating that ASL is not a good model for AFVs/AFV combat. "It's a squad game, not a tank game".... yadda, yadda I can understand that some people will always look for what isn't there - some little detail that wasn't integrated into the system or that the reality vs...

    Concern-German vs. Soviet Armor

    I'm only learning the armor rules, so I don't know how a typical game goes (I've played an SK3 scenario with tanks-that's it). But I'm a bit worried about one implication of the armor rules. It appears that Russian tanks are more effective in this game than German tanks. To Hit...

    Tank Killing and ASL

    This week I was reading some studies done shortly after the war of tank engagements in western Europe in World War II. If I remember correctly, one looked at the British in Normandy and the other looked at the 3rd and 4th U.S. armored divisions. They examined a total of hundreds of engagements...
