Bare bone rules

These are BARE BONE rules, many things have been deleted or amended. For those who find the full set of rules too much this may be more to your liking.

There is a text error in the rules, but it isn't worth a releasing a new version. You will note in Z fire rule 2 that support weapons may fire to LOS+1, there is no mention to a limited number of...

Re: Will there be a 2018 update?

You can Z fire into unseen hexes, at the Blitz we call it GOD MODE firing, where the AI has shown an enemy unit but you don't have anyone who can see it. You can, sometimes, fire into that hex. ...

Re: Error in Abn mtr unit?

That is right, EVERYONE carried MG or Mortar ammo, not just the crew, who only carries the ready rounds. The USMC isn't unique in everyone carrying ammo, believe it or not we do in Canada too. BTW...

Re: Error in Abn mtr unit?

Actually the 81mm round weighs between 9-10lbs, while a can of linked 50cal weighs 35lbs. The mortar crew does not carry the ammo for the tube except for the 4 ready rounds, the rest is carried by...

Re: Error in Abn mtr unit?

I humped the 50cal, never a mortar. You are right, two on the MG, 1 on the tripod (that is all we used) and 1 carry ammo (2 cans). The ammo is too heavy to carry along with the MG or tripod.

Re: Error in Abn mtr unit?

It is the US OOB 81mm DF, but you are correct checking other country OOBs the indirect mortars have a speed of 2, the US 81mm OOB has a speed of 3 as does the CDN 60mm DF mortar. But I was just...

Sorry, but one other thing need tweaking?

Playing my turn and the 81mm DF can only move 1 hex at a time cross country, speed 3. The 50cal HMG can move 2 hexes cross country (speed 4). The 81 mortar, complete, weighs 89 pounds whereas the...

Re: Error in Abn mtr unit?

I did some searching, and although they are called "PARA" they were actually loaded onto gliders and would come in after the para infantry secured the DZ. They were airborne though and delivered via...

Re: Error in Abn mtr unit?

No it is not.

If it shows a mortar Icon it's a "gun" if it shows just the "crew" as infantry it's a DF.

The formation it is in is Para Pl DW[A].....DW indicated it's set up as " detached...

That will solve that problem, thanks. I wasn't complaining but it didn't make sense, and since you guys are the keeper of the grail now it fell into your lap. If SSI or GG was still around I would...
