Easy question

Post by brusilov »

Gembloux Gap scenario booklet; Scenario 4 Get The Guns!

I feel a bit ridiculous posting this question, but one player appears to believe that "armoured cars" may not fit the category of "armour." In that the Germans are allowed to field a SdKfz 222 armoured car(!)...because it is not considered "armour." (I know; don't ask. I wasn't with the group when this "point" was raised.) Can someone please add their opinion, please? Eg; How your group played this scenario?

:lol: Sounds quite ridiculous to me. I'd say that the prohibition also includes German armored cars, trains and the like.

Weird! Armoured cars are definitely AFV (armoured fighting vehicles) and so should be considered "armour". Not sure how someone could argue otherwise.

Maybe if someone has played lots of Bolt Action, armoured cars are classed differently in most theater selectors so you can take a tank and an armoured car.

I think they are referring to the reason for lack of armour on that mission ....something to do with the panzer div being busy elsewhere ?
I would need to read it again unless someone prints the bit here?

The reason for "no armour" is provided in the German army list:
Panzer Availability
Due to losses at Hannut, 3 Panzer Division are keen to avoid prepared defensive positions where anti-tank guns or artillery could take further toll
on their numbers. As a result, no AFVs (shown in blue above) may be selected for Scenarios Two and Four.
And the SdKfz 221 and SdKfz 222 are in blue!

I'd call that pretty decisive!
