I had this thiought when I awoke this morning - scary.

If the unit in the bunker is a sniper, do you have a choice of which is killed by the star, the bunker or the sniper?

the petard mortar rules say that a star hits the unit and removes the bunker. So you don't have to choose.

Is it still being "Devil's Advocate" if the suggestion isn't possible with the rules? Rolling Eyes Razz Laughing

I can see how you might come up with this question, though, because at first I forgot that not all units hit Snipers on Stars. Cool

Yes, this is the very thought I was having. There might be some confusion since a Petard with a STAR destroys a bunker and other units firing STARs will eliminate Snipers.

Actually I am not the DEVIL's advocate, I am the novice's and those confused by the variety of rules advocate. If there is a way to express a rule or take more time to give more detail when presenting a rule (instead of presuming everyone will understand it the same) then I am for that!!! Laughing

The only units that hit a sniper with a star are an airplane, a machine gun, and another sniper -- unless there's some fourth that I'm not thinking of.

The EP rule book has no provision for petard planes, petard machine guns, or petard snipers.

So somebody's been hoisted in his own petard. Smile
