I've reviewed the rules a couple of times as well as attempted to search the forum for an answer unsuccessfully.

When a unit does an ADVANCE it can pivot before, after or instead of moving 1 space. No problem.

How many hexsides can it pivot? Only 1 side (adjacent)? Or to any hexside it wishes?

Oh, and if this is stated specifically in the rules somewhere could you point out where I missed it?
Thanks!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

Rule 31.1 clearly states that vehicles may "freely change their fire arc". So do that: freely change its fire arc. You are assuming a restriction that is not present.

Rule 34.121 is similarly unencumbered with limitations, so there aren't any.

Rule 35.21 does specifically call out a free pivot limit of one hexside. This special case should not be extrapolated to other rules.

Thank you for the responses. Now that I'm sufficiently humbled AND, more importantly, educated the game flows much better.

Maybe I need to arrange to learn/play these things sometime other than 1am on a weeknight!
