Hi gents,

Axis setup instructions say that the vehicles may not setup in a non factory building/rubble. Can they setup IN a railcar (ie not in VB)?

FB 6.22 says Vehicles may only enter a Rail Car hex using Vehicular bypass Movement as if entering a building hex. Technically its not a building.....

Thanks,
John

I would say "no" if not in bypass, as per A2.9 "A unit/weapon may not set up overstacked or in a hex it could not enter during the normal course of play..."
Since a vehicle can only enter a Rail Car hex using VBM, this would preclude it from being able to set up within the Rail Car itself.

Hey John,

An AFV may only ever use/set up in Bypass in a Rail Car hex.

Thanks!

Thanks...I reread FB 6.22 again and see where I misread it. I overlooked the "only" when it says: Vehicles may only enter a Rail Car hex using Vehicular bypass Movement as if entering a building hex. ...mea culpa
