Re: Does the LCP provide cover?
When I had this discussion with my opponent(who was the US}, he thought we should play as follows:
The LCP cannot take actions
The LCP cannot fire or be attacked directly.
His interpretation is that a "unit" on it is by definition not the LCP marker and therefore can be ON the LCP marker, fire from it and be attacked.
I on the other hand suggested that the LCP marker has no influence on the firefight at all except for departure.
He was adamant, so I relented and we played his interpretation.
I guess I'm fine either way.
Whichever way it is played will have some bearing for sure.
BTW, this seems very difficult for the Americans.
We played 4 times before the Marines got a victory.
He exited 4 troops, which is a grand accomplishment I believe.
If he had only exited 3 it would have been a Japanese victory.
