Re: Armoured vehicle forced off table

As per section 12 of the FAQ, “Q: If a vehicle retires off the table due to being obliged to reverse off the table edge, is it removed from the game completely. A: Yes, it is. As with any unit leaving the table.” You may want to think about deploying your vehicles sideways, so they “back up” up or ...

Re: Tanks destroying buildings....

Given the 7 HE dice the Tiger gets, it might just want to shell the building until it collapses or the occupants are dead ;-). Not as effective as the SP 150mm sIG, but still quite respectable.

Re: Flammpanzer 251/16 potency?

It appears that the front mounted lmg was standard so probably should be included on the model. With a JL, you might well be able to fire the LMG and one flamethrower although I'd probably limit that combination to when the flamethrower is firing in the rear quadrant of its arc. I suspect list 6 is ...

Re: "Platoon Forward" & "At The Sharp End"

Platoon Forward is listed onthe TFL site under Troops, Weapons, and Tactics (the older TFL platoon campaign system). Not sure if it would be redundant or provide additional rules to supplement ATSE (the CoC campaign rules). ATSE already includes rules for generating personalities for leaders, names,...

Re: Flammpanzer 251/16 potency?

Seems likely to be a very tempting target for a hand grenade and I'd certainly count the half track as an enclosed space.

Re: Flammpanzer 251/16 potency?

The flame projectors are mounted on pivots on the two sides of the vehicle so they can probably make separate attacks requiring separate activations by a leader, similarly to firing the main gun and hull machine gun for a tank. The fields of fire for each are probably 180 degrees to the side at best...

Re: Effect of Hand Grenades on troops in hard cover.

It was until the first page of the errata from 2017 Section Nine: Infantry Fire The Master Arsenal Table: Rifle Grenades The notes currently read: “Roll for hits as though target in the open” Change this to “Reduce all cover by one level” Personally I prefer the hits as in open as I think grenades ...

Re: Sdkfz 222

The Sdkfz 221 is not listed as a 1MT in the 1940 Handbook, confirming TTs answer.

Re: More Sniper Questions

For cost of AT rifle grenades, I would either count it as intrinsic for a section once a country has introduced it similar to He and smoke grenades with a limit of 1 per section/squad. Might well add something in the CoCulator for figuring out the sections base value for including AT rifle grenades....

Re: More Sniper Questions

Thanks guys, an interesting discussion. I have to keep reminding myself that there is a difference between a projectile launched from an ATR and a rifle grenade. I just did a google search and could find no evidence that a Paratroop section carried rifle grenades or ATR. They did carry a lot of gre...
