Hi All

Very common occurrence - Sherman crosses the bocage - then rolls a "9" - +1 normal ground pressure but is there a +1 or +2 for crossing bocage - cant find any modifier in all the list?

Thanks in advance for this

Cheers

Rob ?

I don't think there is any modifier for crossing Bocage at all.
Neither the D8.21 Bog Check DRM Table on the Chapter D divider lists one and the Chapter B divider states for Bocage for fully tracked vehicles 'Z & COT B', meaning half MP-allotment plus Cost of Terrain and a (normal) Bog Check.

I went to visit Normandy beaches with one Martin Mayers. We drove into the heart of bocage
country. I think we agreed that bocage in ASL is relatively painless to cross. Sure, it's half MP + COT,
but the DRM for bog is rather generous. Both of us were surprised that there was no additional
modifier for bocage.

Perhaps it's a compromise for playability's sake?

Bocage comes in many types, so crossing it would represent different levels of difficulty...
