German SdKfz 250 and 4 man Recon team.

Post by JOHN BOND 001 » Fri Aug 16, 2019 10:07 am

Just some clarification needed for the following:

The German player decides to disembark the 4 man Recon team from the SdKfz 250, the US player decides to target the SDKfz with a bazooka and destroys it,
Does the German player roll for Bad Things Happen for the loss of the vehicle?

Later in the game the Recon team is also eliminated , does it also roll for BTH ?

thanks John

I'd go for both. But that might be considered harsh by some.

On the other hand, an empty vehicle is not of much consequence in any scrap, so I would ignore that. Clearly, the extinction of the actual team would be of far more concern, so a BTH roll then would be appropriate.

If you had a truck transporting a section and then it dismounted and the truck was later destroyed would you roll on thr BTH table?
What about a motorcycle?
Or a horse?

How is the horse going to get home if his truck has been destroyed?

I would say no roll for the loss of just the vehicle, but the rules don't specifically cover this one, so it's a judgement call.

Hmmm, but if the 250 was their only bus out of danger if things took a turn for the worse, seeing it blown up would be a ‘bad thing’ that might affect force morale, surely?

It might effect their moral but not that of the whole platoon.
