Anyone for a Tanker?

Re: More AI tanking

Hi again, our club reopened about 3 weeks ago, and we have a few restrictions to follow... No Kitchen (we meet in a church hall) Social spacing as far as is possible.(Good job we have a table between us)! ...and that is about it!

Re: More AI tanking

Thanks Carl!

Actually, I used my own rules for solo play, and my own Arab-Israeli Tanker supplement, both free to download from my club website https://herkybird.tynesidewargames.co.uk/misc.html

PS: the link to the rules is https://herkybird.tynesidewargames.co.uk/misc.html

The previous post wouldn't allow me to add it saying 'The maximum number of URL's allowed is 2' - I could only see one! :roll:

AI tanker updated

Hi all,

Just to let you know the Arab Israeli tanker file (free to download, natch)- has been modified, so that the Archer SPG used by the Egyptians in 1956 can now be deployed!

Re: Acquire rule question

I agree! We always assume acquisition is lost even if only for a part of a move.
