And sorry if I sounded a bit harsh. I understand they're all games, but I dislike "gameyness" in a game. I like how TFL rules reward actual manual tactics and don't cotton to much to rules-lawyering them to unbalancing a game.

No problem John. I'm still learning IABSM, but they are indeed a great set of rules.

I recall reading that Sd.251s were used in a Das Reich account in a mobile assault, just as the poster described trying to use his. It was a risky move but allowed a PzGr unit to cross open ground fast.

So, I think it is possible but it's up to the player's sense of risk.

I don't think too many people have a problem with keeping your troops in a 251 in CoC if you want to. If it gets torched, you'll pay a heavy price (support wiped out, 1 or 2D6 hits on troops with a good likelihood of a JL hit as well).

I think people object to troops firing their weapons while on board and the vehicle is moving (MGs attached to the vehicle excluded). I certainly think it would be hard enough to stand and see targets, let alone shoot at them using a weapon that takes two hands to use.
