Roll separate dice.
It doesn't come up that often so we just roll separate.
I thought it was in the FAQ?

If the bulk of the shooting unit is 18" or less from the target, I let them all shoot using the closer range. If it's close, I roll a die. KISS and all that.

Or you could measure and roll separately. As long as both sides agree.

It’s cropped up once or twice...I think we’ve just rolled separately. Another of those situations where it doesn’t really matter what you do as long as it’s applied to both sides consistently.

Yeah, similar question all right. I had searched for the word "Range" ando so missed this one in particular. Tough it brings another question as this states that you can split the dice as you like unlike the rulebook that gives you the chance either to focus all dice or split them evenly, where in this case you can split the dice as you like. Also its not clear whether you have to split the dice for attack prior to see if you hit or just split the hits you get. The first method has more implications.

Pardon - you lost me at the first split.
You have to split dice if teams are within 4" and in same cover
You can choose to NOT split dice if they are in different cover
If they are at different ranges you have the same choice as if they had different cover. You MAY choose to concentrate on the closest or you may spread your fire. That is not the same question as when your teams are at different distances from the target team in which case they should roll separate dice.
Q: If you fire at a squad with two teams in the same cover and visible to the firer, but one team is
within 18'' of the firer and the other team is over 18'', how do you resolve that fire?
A: This is exactly the same as with troops in different cover types. The firer may choose to focus his
fire on the closer target, or may elect to split his fire, in which case he rolls two lots of dice, splitting
his firing dice as he wishes.

s.
It was the splitting the firing dice as he wishes that gave me pause. Rule 8.3.1 states "Alternatively, the Germans may decide that they prefer to spread their fire across both Groups, in which case the hits would be split equally and the effect then rolled for allowing for cover as normal. (See Table Six, Hit Effects.)". Split equally not as the players wishes. THAT was what raised the eyebrows.

Yeah it always your choice to split the fire or if there is an easier target concentrate it
Never seen anyone in 6 years of playing split their fire if they had a choice ....just sayin
