Q. Does an Armored Train lose its ability to combat when it takes a third damage point? A. Yes. When the Wagon that carries the Artillery piece is removed, after the Train is hit 3 times, the Armored Train loses the ability to battle. If the Train is hit again, the Locomotive is destroyed and becomes a victory medal for the opponent.
Activations for the Artillery (Comment / Question)
Is the artillery a "unit" itself? If I move the train, does the artillery need an activation of its own to fire? I get that it CAN fire, but could you, say move it with a recon center and fire the artillery? What if the Train straddled the centerline?
