Ed,

The last line in the first Paragraph of 9.0 is very confusing, could you please re-write that sentence.

Also on the spotting table most of it is very clear but does U=unable to spot?


Also are we using the Armor Value Table from Mech War 2, the exclusive rules?

Tom and I will start to push the cardboard next week, we did a initial setup of the first scenario and went over the rules and some of the charts, etc.

"Enemy Unit counters are only turned face up when they are observed by Friendly Units."?

Both players place the unit counters face down and the opposing player is not allowed to view them until they are observed. Only then may they be turned face up and examined by the opposing player. The owning player may, of course, peek at them at any time.

Observation table:
"U" is unlimited.

Ignore all the tables from MechWar 2. Use the armor values in the MW3 Unit Data Sheets. For example, the M60 has front KE armor of '5' and '2' on the side, and '1' in the rear.

Woops, the hazards of renumbering sections.

That should read:

For example, a BMP may fire the 73mm gun OR the machine gun but never both the 73mm gun and the machine gun in the same Movement Phase.

Here is what's going on: The 73mm gun and the coaxial LMG are both on the turret and designed to be alternative weapon systems for the gunner. He can shoot one or the other but not both.

On the other hand, the T72 has a 125mm main gun, a coaxial LMG (on the turrent weapon platform), and an HMG (on the copula weapon platform). The Player can fire both the 125mm main gun AND the copula HMG. Or he can fire both the LMG and the HMG but he may not fire all three nor may he fire both the 125mm main gun and the LMG.
