2 Cross:Thank you for your hard work !

A few questions.

What does it mean "Elevation (AFV)" ?

In shallow water and beach what "Defensive Cover Guide" ?

Quote:
Units are only stationary if they did not move in the previous turn.
In my opinion, unit will stationary after turn opponent. That is, first of its new turn.

"Elevation (AFV)" means an armoured vehicle is considered "hull down" (giving it some cover and other bonuses) when on a higher elevation.

"Beach" is covered by "sand (flat)", "volcanic sand" and "soft sand dunes".

I am not sure about water - I believe something floating would count as clear = very poor a vehicle "wading" may get some cover.

Cross is correct in that the game considers that units are stationary only if they didnt move last turn (or are infantry that have "taken cover").

You say:

1 turn - my unit moves (no stationary)

2 turn - my unit not moving (no stationary)

3 turn - my unit not moving (now stationary)

I correctly understand you ?

It is interesting to hear the arguments of your and Cross.
It is logical that second turn unit stationary, as speed = 0 km/h.

From the game guide (Game Play Notes):

... In WinSPWW2, you are considered fully stationary only if you neither moved this turn, nor the previous game turn (in technical terms, if you expend >= half your MP in a previous turn, a 'moving fast' flag is set, you need to spend a complete turn not having expended half or more MP to reset this flag). Movement will also break any fire control solution you have made on the target ('target lock') unless you have a tank with a stabiliser, which can move whilst keeping target lock, so long as the LOS between the firer and the previously engaged target is not broken...

Not my argument - this is how the game works

Hi Epoletov,

I agree with Scorpio's answers.

The only things I would add is that Shallow Water I've listed as "water" for defensive cover (Very Poor), just like flat sand.

Soft Sand should offer slightly better cover, and probably better cover from artillery than direct fire.


A graphic explanation of Hull Down as a result of elevation:




regards,

Cross
