Forward observer question

Post by Big Bob » Tue Nov 26, 2019 11:54 pm

Can a forward observer or a big man call in indirect fire support while they're still on blinds or do they have to deploy on the table to do so?

I always make them deploy on table.

This seems odd.

A BM or FO or individual squad can spot while on a Blind...........and not reveal itself..........but if they do the same to call in Indirect Fire and pick up a telephone.......then they do get placed on the table????'

Doesn't seem right?

Possible compromise would be that:
-if the Blind is deployed, then after two turns of adjusting fire, then placed on the board
-if hidden in a house or bush, than after two turns of adjusting fire, then a Blind is placed on the board...
