    Battle Die Reduction (Comment / Question)

    Do units get protection from terrain/obstacles against Cavalry units, ie. are Cavalry battle dice reduced when they attack a unit in woods/behind sandbags etc.?

    If so, doesn't that make Cavalry really weak as they can only effectively attack units in open terrain?

    Q I have not seen any scenarios what are they used in?

    What are they used in (Comment / Question)

    A. A few Eastern Front Scenarios.
    Counter-Attack at Sverchkovo,
    Raseiniai - w/Brandenburgers,
    Velikaya Bridgehead - Campaign Book
    Nach Moskau! -BT

    There's some more from Equipment Pack:
    Operation Seydlitz

    Battle Die Reduction (Comment / Question)

    A: Cavalry do not ignore terrain battle dice reductions. This DOES make them weak. (It's WWII, after all.)

    The only good use for cavalry would be to pop up as reinforcements on the opponent's baseline (like Armor Breakthrough) to attack 1- and 2- figure infantry units that have been pulled back. Someone should make a scenario like this!

    A: There's a new (June 2013) official scenario involving Italian cavalry: Battle of Agordat, Eritrea/Ethiopia in 1941.

    Overrun (Comment / Question)

    They can be powerful in open terrain with their speed and armor overrun ability. That is if you lack tanks.

    Equipment Pack Rules Confusion (Comment / Question)

    After reading, searching, and discussion on BGG, I cannot determine if Cavalry suffer the terrain battle dice reductions of infantry or armour. In the newest rules (Equipment Pack), it states "A Cavalry unit is treated like Infantry for ordering and Armor for movement and combat."

    It then goes on toe explain how it moves and fights for dice, but no mention of terrain restrictions or battle dice modifications are made. But the phrase "...and Armor for movement and combat" implies it suffers the same restrictions and modifications that Armor does.

    Moreover, if it is treated like armor for combat, wouldn't that mean it is hit on armor rolls on dice, not infantry?

    Is there an official explanation available?

  7. GI John says

    Ordered as infantry attacked as infantry (Comment / Question)

    Cavalry are ordered as infantry and attacked as infantry. Nothing else makes sense. For example, attacking into Forest hex 'as tank' would yeild no dice.

    They have 4 units and good movement. But, lack the defensive capabilities, range and power of a tank. Makes perfect sense that they can overrun too. They are still on horseback.

  8. GI John says

    They attack 'like' armor... (Comment / Question)

    ...because they can armor overrun. But, they still are ordered and attacked as infantry.

  9. GI John says

    Weak Cavalary (Comment / Question)

    They should only be used on enemy units in the opened. I would have preferred a 3-2 battle dice instead of 2-1.
