If a unit places a firelane and later a BU AFV bypasses its location is the FL automatically cancelled? or does the unit have the option of cancelling it?

Thanks

A FL is never voluntarily cancelled. I believe that the new ASLRB says that any TPBF oppertunity requires cancellation of a FL [exc: unarmed enemy units?]. The wording was changed in v2. In v1 I do not think that that was the case.

Only if the AFV ends its MPh in the Location. A9.223.

That was a change in v2.

Confusing answer....

It MAY cancel if the AFV enters its Location (i.e., TPBF), it MUST cancel if the AFV ends its MPh in its Location.

A9.223

Previous Q&A as well:
A9.233 If a unit creates a Fire Lane and later uses its Inherent FP as Subsequent First Fire, does this cancel the Fire Lane?
A. A squad can fire its inherent FP as First Fire after previously only firing a MG to lay down a Fire Lane. A HS that has laid down a Fire Lane (or a squad that has both laid down a Fire Lane and used its inherent FP as First Fire) cannot use Subsequent First Fire unless in a TPBF situation (which then cancels the Fire Lane). ['97 Annual]

A9.223 Must a MG cancel its Fire Lane when an “unbroken” vehicle (A12.1) enters its Location (even if in Bypass)?
A. Yes, unless it is a BU CT AFV, in which case the MG/its-manning-Infantry may cancel the Fire Lane to attack the AFV. ['98 Journal]
