    Just strolled into a 1FP residual attack in open ground, with a HS and a FT. The resid attack should be 1 -3 (FFNAM, FFMO, FT vulnerability) and opponent rolled boxcars.

    Does that do anything other than miss horribly?

    Cheers,

    Actually, I laughed a bit and breathed a sigh of relief.

    Thanks guys, for some reason, I had it rattling around in my head that the original 12 would cancel it, but didn't see anything in A8.2

    If it's a Firelane your opponent just malf'd the MG

    Good point, maybe even permanently if it was captured.

    Or used by unqualified/inexperienced units.

    Or suffering from Extreme Winter, or Ammunition Shortage (I think that should cover it - I don't think there are any MGs with a natural X#).

    Though there are no FL during Ammo Shortage IIRC.

    Hmm, you're right of course - I tried to be too smart for my own good. (Except maybe in Kampfgruppe Scherer scenarios and/or CGs, which allows the Germans to lay a limited number of Fire Lanes despite various levels of Ammo Shortage - and even some form of Extreme Winter, IIRC)

    Thanks, but it still feels like cheating - anytime something is impossible in ASL, it just takes a scenario SSR to make it possible...
