Posted on behalf of someone not active on GS:
A vehicle can keep ROF, move, shoot and lose ROF, and then Intensive Fire from the second hex, but cannot move again and Intensive Fire.
Whether the MG were fired from the very first hex (the only one possible) is not a factor.

Don't see this as conflicting with the prior two Q&A.

We have two additional Q&A:

C5.6, D3.3, & D3.51 In a Friendly Mph, can a vehicular MA fires using Bounding First Fire, loses its rate of fire, move to another hex and then intensive fire?
A. No.


C5.6, D3.3, & D3.51
In its MPh, an AFV Fires its MA and loses rate. It also fires all of its MGs from the same Location in accordance with D3.51. Maythe AFV declare an Intensive Fire (IF) shot? If so, may that IF shot be used to fulfill the EXC in the last sentence of D3.51 and fire that IF shot in another hex or would the IF shot limited to the Location which it has already fired from?
A. Yes. Limited. (That is, you can IF in BFF but not from a different hex.)



The first says an AFV cannot move and Intensive Fire and the second basically says IF is not a type of ROF.

Taken together, this leaves us with a conundrum. Imagine an AFV moves to hex A and B1F's the MA and maintains ROF. Now it moves to hex B and fires the MA and loses ROF. Per Q&A, it cannot move back to hex A and fire and per D3.51, it can only fire ROF in a new hex. Per Q&A, IF is not a form of ROF. Taken as a whole, this leaves the AFV with no IF options. With this background:


1) Is no Intensive Fire the intended outcome in such a situation?

2) If not, is it better said that a vehicle could IF in the Location in which it lost ROF?

3) Does firing the MG's change any of this? It is accepted that the MGs still must be fired in hex A per D3.51.
