Im a bit confused about cavalry, by the rules in the Equipment pack.

it says:
Quote:

When indicated in the scenario’s Briefing Notes, place
4 Cavalry figures in each scenario hex containing an
Infantry symbol with a Cavalry badge.
A Cavalry unit is treated like Infantry for ordering and Armor for movement and combat.
An ordered Cavalry unit:
May move up to 3 hexes and battle.
May battle any enemy target 2 or fewer
hexes away. It rolls 2 dice in Close
Assault and 1 die against a target at 2 hexes.
May, on a successful Close Assault combat, Take Ground and battle
again, using the same rules as the Armor Overrun combat.


So this means, that it gets a -2 dice against a forest or town?
Does this also means you have to throw grenades to kill cavalry (it says it has to be treated like armor in combat)?

The rules in the EP are updated rules (acording to the symbol next to it) so what is exactly changed? or only if the scenario says "polish cavalry"

We played the EP yesterday and we played the cavalry as an infantery unit with special movement abilities, but nog the -2 dice restrictions against forest (because this makes cavalry useless)


The summary card is not very helpfull in this case in my opinion....

I think the reference to armor movement and combat is in the ability to overrun after close combat and battle a second time.

May, on a successful Close Assault combat, Take Ground and battle again, using the same rules as the Armor Overrun combat

This is how I would interpret the rules in this case.

Of course I could be wrong. Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

But Alas, you are correct. The Overrun combat ability of Armor, not it's dice restrictions are what apply. Cavalry have the same terrain dice restrictions as Infantry.

Thats how we played it, but the rules in the ep are still confusing when the say that cavalry are orded as infantry en the battle as armor.....
