Just got the 2nd edition of AtB and I'm excited to play. My question is, to be up to date, do I need to download the latest rule book and firefight book from Academy games or do I just use the books that came with the game?
Thank you.

Heh, well this is a quirk with the game: The rulebook situation is a bit of a mess, as they keep tweaking rules, scenarios, and unit chit values from printing to printing. I'd say for the smoothest experience, just use the books that come with your copy of the game. You really don't need to worry about cohesiveness until you get more than one product in the CoH family.

The rule book with the game should be okay. I would download the FF book just to make sure as I think there were small errors corrected here and there. Or you could wait until you see something odd in a FF and consult the online FF book.

AtB, FF Book, 2nd Ed on website is copyright 2012.

The FF Book, which came with my copy of AtB, 2nd Ed is copyright 2012-2016.

Thus, it appears that my 2012-2016 FF Book is more current than the website version.

This is important for FF 2, NKVD Defense at Mir because the Russian Relief Platoon which enters in Round 1 has 4xRifle in the 2012-2016 copy but only 3xRifle in the 2012 copy.

Which is correct ?

The rules I see on the academy games website are version 25, which are the latest rules that I have, updated sometime in 2016 I believe.

Oh, wait, you are asking about FF book. Nevermind.

I'm pretty sure its 3xRifle and 1xNKVD.

Have you searched the forum. I know this was asked before.
