General stevens Rules Quiz No.6 Fri, 15 February 2013 19:31
Besides the typical terrain one encounters in Memoir '44 that occasionally obstructs movement, there is also a the small group of terrain obstacles which are intentionally designed for that purpose. Let's talk a bit about the HEDGEHOGS.

Not the cute little animals that inhabit our woodlands, but those prickly man-made objects that inhabited many of the beaches and urban jungles in WWII.

These devices were originally designed to inhibit armor movement. And on the beaches of Normandy they not only did that, but they also provided cover for many of the infantrymen attempting to make their way ashore under heavy enemy fire on D-Day. Just play SWORD BEACH, JUNO BEACH, or FIRST ASSAULT WAVE and you will see both the advantages and disadvantages these particular devices provide.

In time the Allies not only overcame these obstacles, but with the help of Sgt. Culin US Army, they were to later use them to help breach the HEDGEROWS they encountered inland.

So here is my quiz question:
Besides the Regular Armor (3 fig) and Specialized Armor (4 fig) tank units you typically encounter in a game,
give one example of another distinct fighting unit that may not enter a hex with a hedgehog.
(And obviously trains, aircraft carriers and destroyers don't count - at least not for this quiz!).
