Russian Tank Riders

Post by IanF »

Hello all,

How do you play Russian ( or other) tank riders? Have found bits and bobs here and there but can they fire from a tank, what happens if the tank is hit etc.

Thanks

They should dismount as soon as the tank comes under fire or encounters enemy infantry so I would not allow them to fire from the tank. Any such fire is likely to be ineffective.

On Pg7 of the Bashyna or Bust book there is a section relating to tanker riders.

This is a summary:
- one section per AFV;
- dismount using one action;
- may then move with remaining actions if AFV did not move;
- if AFV moved section actions are reduced;
- rider are are great shot target while amounted;
- must dismount if AFV hit, number of penetrations will determine the effect on the section;
- normal rules apply if caught under indirect fire or air attack.

Regards
Darren
