Hi,

When you calculate fire from multiple hexes into one hex, do you apply the terrain modifiers on each firing unit and then add them all together or do you add the fire all together and then apply the terrain effects.

For example, with the fortified farms of Belgium, fire into them receives a -3. If I have 3 infantry columns each firing into one farm, is it 2+2+2-3=3 or is it (2-3) + (2-3)+ (2-3) = -3 thus no fire?

Modifiers apply to each fire. Three columns at 1 fire factor have no chance to make losses into a fortified farm.

Think about it, a column is a single company of small arms, I don't see how that can make significant firepower.
