How many man crew did the armored car and the tankette each have? With only a 2 or 3 man crew they would not have to be large. Just an observation.

Would an Armored Car be subject to a Sniper attack? Or would it act like armor and prevent the Sniper from attacking if the Armored Car was adjacent to the Sniper (unless of course another eligible Sniper target type was also adjacent to the Sniper).

In the rules (last sentence - first para):

"A Armored Car unit is treated like Armor for all purposes."

Also in the rules under "Battle":

"Armored Cars are treated as Infantry when targeted."

So obviously the second sentence overrides the first in regards to what hits armored cars.

But I am not sure a Sniper attack is possible. If it is, I guess a grenade re-roll would be required to eliminate the armored car.


I would have to look it up, but aren't vehicles exempt from Sniper attacks?

"A Sniper cannot target an Armored unit or other vehicles that are treated like Armor." (EP, page 9)

"It acted mostly as a reconnaisance vehicle, but could engage other lightly armored vehicles... Armored Cars are treated as Infantry when targeted... The hybrid nature of an Armored Car make it vulnerable to both AT-Guns and Machine Guns."

So it's a vehicle, but when being targeted it's treated as Infantry. There's good evidence to go either way on this. I'll guess that Snipers can target them, but I'll predict that Richard will rule that they can't, and this way, I'll be right no matter what he says. Smile

If Snipers can hit them, any hits still would have to be rerolled, as with Tigers.

EPIC Barbarossa campaign showdown Thu, 19 January 2017 00:44
My son and I just completed an absurdly down to the wire, skin-of-your-teeth grand campaign with Operation Barbarossa. The entire 12-scenario campaign literally came down to a single roll at the very end.

Kudos to the designers for creating so many interesting scenarios.

The first round (first half of North, South and Center) was pretty much a dead heat.

Second round, I won the Center by a mere 24-23.

He took the North 20-18.

So we were 1-1.

It all came down to the South.

After the first three scenarios, I held a 14-11 lead. Close, but doable.

Except the Sea of Azov. What a bummer scenario for the Russians. In the second round he used a Firefight to drop 4 armor at my rear, with bonuses, and chewed up my line. (That is a SERIOUSLY overpowered move, but the rules seemed to allow it.)

I was aggressive with my front line infantry, though, and pushed at his baseline hard. Retreat flags at the baseline were my best friend.

Going into the late game, he lead 4-3. He had to win by 3 in order to win the campaign.

With an infantry unit with just one figure left pinned on his baseline and two of my infantry right there, plus an artillery within range, I played a Finest Hour. Slam dunk to guarantee at least a tie, right? Just one lousy figure to knock out, with even a retreat resulting in a kill.

My Finest Hour roll resulted in NO POSSIBLE MOVES.

...

Oh man.

Next round, his armor at my rear had an epic series of rolls, hitting 5 times on 6 dice to wipe out an artillery and a 3-man infantry unit, thus securing a 6-3 victory.

That put our South campaign at 17-17. A tie.

And our Grand Campaign? A razor thin 60-59, with him securing an Axis victory by a hair's breadth in literally the final rolls of the game.

Good stuff.

Thank you! I've really enjoyed reading the first tactics and strategy guide and I like to think that it actually made me a better memoir player as well. I'm more than confident this second book will accomplish to do the same!


Hi boersma8

Thanks for the feedback.
Note it's not the second book, but the third one Wink
