Have a question in regards to the Assualt..
When playing without the map expansion and conducting the assault. Does the tank get a free (Op Fire) attack at the infantry guys before you do your attack?? Or, is that just in the map expansion version.
Its a little confusing in the recent rules Byron put out, because he mentions about if any of the units should be taken out of the equation(thus leaving less then the 3 units required)...the attack would not take place. Unless he is just mentioning incase you are doing the attack and DIDNT have initiative...which case you wouldn't have gone first and likely could have gotten someone knocked off. Just asking....sorry if sounds stupid...lol
The initiative and alternating sequence of attacks may allow the elimination of one of the 3 assault units before they get their assault attack in. Would be a target priority decision for the defender among all the other threats.
