I would use the standard rules for firing.
Me too. Chances are the other vehicles will be more than 4" away, so singling out just one vehicle should be pretty easy. The firer always has the option of splitting their fire to target more than one.

I think this is an issue that might occur more in pick up games than in campaigns. Protracted firefights are rarely any use to anyone in a campaign situation.
Excellent point. I've kicked myself after campaign games for getting drawn into that kind of fight.

Re: How to stop battles degenerating into long-range shooting matches?

Most of my attacks quickly degenerate into exercises in managing shock, with no CIs spare to use on such subtleties. That's something you have to plan for though. You can't expect to be doing too much fancy stuff once the brown smelly stuff has hit the fan. There are never enough CIs in the late ga...

Re: Qns about close combat from deployment and in woods.

I reckon I need clarification on this one, as I am about to start playing some Malaya games. What are the restrictions on grenade use in the Jungle? There's no restriction in the rules. TT's trying to make the point that people did throw them around in "the jungle", but the word jungle covers a lot...

Troops in jungle use grenades a lot wht not in woods?
If it's jungle with trees then throwing grenades is dangerous for the same reason. They bounce off the trees and go all over the place.

Re: Qns about close combat from deployment and in woods.

1) Can you deploy and engage immediately in close combat? 2) Being within 4" of him, was I obliged to engage in close combat, since we were in woods where you have to be within 4" to see the enemy? 3) Could I not have simply shot at him instead, and if so, could I have used "maschinengewehre" in th...

Unless you are falling back perhaps.
That's actually one of my favourite rules from SP2, and one I hope makes it into CoC2 when that arrives. Even if just for broken units.

Re: Targeting Tanks with ATG's of Bazookas

If a AT Gun wants to target an enemy tank, but there is an enemy infantry team in front can it do so Yes. Check 11.7. Vehicle guns are counted as being at a higher level than troops on foot. Even if they were on the same level, the AT gun could just shoot right through the infantry. It's an artille...
