If reading rules correctly, armored units cannot assault other armored units or transports. Is this correct? Wondering logic behind this. Thanks

Hi Eric,

Right, armor units can't assault other armored units or transports.

Take in mind the "armor assault" is like a overrun, you can make a armor assault/crush to static units or slow ones like infantry, artillery, etc but can't run behind a truck or tank to try to do the same. With the scale of the game (150 to 200 meters) and the mecanic, or move or shoot, don't make sense assault/crush a transport or another tank, you always will shoot first and in many cases the trasnport or enemy tank can be faster than yours and would make impossible the assault and don't make sense at all be running chase a truck or tank to assault or crush. Thats why we design the game this way.

Best

So that's mean with this new rule in Paths of Hell (the rule was different in La bataille de France) that :

- If one side has 2 INF and 1 AFV in a hex, it would be impossible for the other side to assault this hex ? (Anti armor assault is only INF vs sole AFV, and Armor support is no longer authorized for INF vs AFV+INF)

- If an INF stack is assaulted by an INF+AFV stack and the assalut result in a draw (neither side as to retreat) that means the INF stack will not be able to assault the INF+AFV stack (or fire at it) and will be "frozen" ?

That's look very strange.

Hi Philippe,

I answer you in CSW.

Post here again to let the rest that can have the same question read it:

Right, the Standard are the new and upgraded rules (all text in red are upgrades or new rules as is indicated in the rulebook).

Is possible assaulting the hex with just infantry making a HtH combat.

No, you can fire at or reinforce the HtH combat (only the side have AFVs can reinforce with AFVs, and the melee continues, rule 9.1.4 and rule 9.1.6).
