The definition of "carrier" seems clear in the RB, but becomes confusing when faced with the great variety of "carriers," "armored personnel carriers," and many variants or hybrids found in the complete British and Commonwealth armor listings. Presumably, many of these vehicles, like the Badger and Ram Kangaroo, are treated as OT AFV and are not like carriers at all. I base this upon the specifics of the vehicle notes and especially as they do not receive notes U or V: U See D6.8-.84 for the basic rules pertaining to Carriers. If this Carrier has sD/Towing capability, it is not useable prior to 1944 - as signified by the superscript(s) "4+". If this Carrier is to start a DYO scenario as a towing vehicle, an Infantry (i.e.,2-2-8) crew may be purchased for it in lieu of its Inherent HS; this is accomplished by adding two points in the "Opt.BPV" column of the DYO Roster's "Vehicle" section. The MF expenditures given in C10.11 and C10.12 for (un)hooking a Gun apply unchanged if the MMC performing that action is simultaneously (un)loading from/into this Carrier. The use of "A", "B" and "C" in the piece names are our own designations, given to help differentiate between similar models. V Of the special rules for Carriers, only D6.82 - .83 and H1.43 apply to IP Carriers (and their Inherent HS/crew); for all other purposes they are considered non-Carrier wheeled OT AFV. However, this vehicle may retain any unpossessed SW aboard it (D6.4). U or V are given as notes to, I think, all "true" British Carriers. As such, it seems like both the Badger and the Ram Kangaroo are not treated as carriers. Thus they can be BU and can fire (their BMG and FT) that way. Is this true? And am I missing some other, more obvious, signal as to what vehicles actually are "carriers"? [I see that most of them are actually called "Carrier" under the type and not APC...exception: Wasp] And finally, assuming that the Badger and Ram Kangaroo are not treated as Carriers, then I assume that they cannot form FG or perform other activities common to halftracks (though the Ram Kangaroo can transport personnel). Also true? ...and thus there is no 2-4-8 HS in disguise as the vehicle's crew riding around in these two vehicles.
