Just double-checking...

The movement rules for Halftracks say:

20.1 wrote:
Each Halftrack may carry one Squad, WT, or Gun.

But the description for the SPW 251/1 in particular says:

20.0 wrote:
The only Halftrack in Ghost Panzer is the SPW 251/1. It has no weapon. It may carry one Squad or WT.

Since there are a few scenarios (21-23) where SPW 251/1s enter as reinforcements with Guns (and no Infantry), I'm assuming that's an oversight in the rulebook and the SPW 251/1 can in fact carry Guns—otherwise that's one cruel tease for the German player.

20.1 also lists the additional 1/2 point move cost to 'tow'/carry guns.
20.3 has procedures for unloading carried guns.

Sounds like an oversight in the rules to me- I am playing with the SPWs carry guns.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Thanks for the confirmation! I couldn't imagine that wouldn't have been the case.
