Cross-posted from this thread:

Q: Does Multi-Applicable British Vehicle Note S apply to the Cromwell VI and VIII (British Vehicle Note 20)?

A: Only the historical part applies.

Thanks Perry!

As context is ever so helpful...

S The 94* can fire only Smoke - not HE or AP. Smoke fired by the 94* or 76* is not subject to C8.9 Depletion, as signified by "∞ Smoke" on the counter [EXC: the 76* of the Tetrarch CS, Matilda II CS and the Churchill I has s9 and non-depleteable HE when used in a scenario set after 10/43; increase their BPV by 10 points for such use]. The 76* and 94* have a maximum range of 50 hexes - as signified by "[50]" on the counter. The 94* is not considered functioning ordnance for OVR purposes (D7.11) nor is the 76* if it has depleted its HE. On the Churchill I, only the 76* SA may fire Smoke and HE.

20. Cromwell VI & VIII: These were the CS versions of the Cromwell. They carried a low-velocity 94mm howitzer which was designated 95mm to distinguish it from the weapon used in the older, obsolete CS tanks. The precise number of Cromwells built is no longer known, but would appear to be about 2050; in addition, many (probably most) Centaurs were converted to Cromwells.

† Cromwell VI RF is 1.3 in 1944 and 1.4 in 1945. Cromwell VIII RF is 1.4 in 1944 and 1.5 in 1945.

The same application of the MAVN applies to note 18. Also the overscored 95. MAVN S for the overscored/underscored 94 does not apply because notes 18 and 20 describe an overscored 95*, described in note 20, "which was designated 95mm to distinguish it from the weapon used in the older, obsolete CS tanks."
