Re: Off Table Machine Guns

Note that some light mortars with longer ranges, e.g. US 60mm mortars, are allowed to fire from off table in the basic rules (secton 9.4) so the fact that the pre-game barrage isn't listed as affecting them might be an oversight or an indication that other off table assets shouldn't be affected?

Re: CoC FAQ

Note that there is a special rule in the Soviet lists that include the T-35 (Soviet pre-was tank design with 5 turrets) allowing a crew position to be activated with a 1. This could be allowed for as a house rule for all multi-turreted tanks but not officially so defined.

Re: Over watch and panzerfausts

The ruled in 9.5.3 is clearly garbled. Accordion to it, a JL never orders a section AT weapon to fire. It requires a SL to order firing one at a non vehicle target. And apparently doesn't require an activation to fire at a vehicle target. I suspect the intent was that the JL orders the use at a vehi...

Re: POssible Late War Commisar rule

count the commissar as an inferior Senior Leader, but still activating on a 5 and counting as 2 men for shock effects on a unit he is with, counting as one man in melee, etc. On a 4 I think you mean Commissars activate on a 5 in the army lists for early war (1939-40, 1941, etc) so I left it as a 5 ...

POssible Late War Commisar rule

Currently the Soviet list in the rules includes the Commissar as a support option but no indication what a commisar can do. To reflect increasing Soviet infantry professionalism from 1943 (or possibly 7/1943 on) I would remove the Commisars ability to shoot a section member to remove shock and inste...

Re: Officers

I would roll as if the sole officer was a normal bloke - so if he is hit he is hit but then you have to roll to see the result so go straight to 9.1.1 HITS ON LEADERS & FORWARD OBSERVERS Leaders and Forward Observers may be targeted if they are more than 4” from any friendly troops. They are treate...

Re: Questions on US Armored Rifle Platoon

Yes, the M1919 just counts as a belt-fed LMG. That's probably quite generous as it makes it just as good as much better guns like the MG34 and MG42, but it's the nearest fit without concocting a special rule just for that gun. A minor adjustment without a major rules change would be to not allow it...

Re: French "shurtzen"

One problem that the CoC rules don't reflect well is many armoured vehicles have significantly better frontal armour compared to their flank than average versus others where there is less difference between the frontal and flank armour than average. The rules handle the case adequately for AFV with ...

Re: They Don't Make Tanks Like That Any More

Nope mate can just activate 2 positions so 12 shots . However therr are some that allow multiturret tanks to activate another turret with a 1. Note sure its in BK tho The rule for using 1's to activate additional positions is in the Soviet 1941 list so presumably offical at least for the T-35. I'm ...

Re: soviet support LIST

Since there are JLs listed with the Soviet AT guns in the Kursk and Winterstorm campaigns, I suspect the omission in the list in the rules is a typo and not intentional. I've always given the Soviet AT guns the JL when playing with them.
