When tracing supply the rules state use 'Motorised' - however I can't find if you should use Truck or Mech, as they have quite different terrain effects on movement

It maybe mentioned in the rules but I have run out of paracetamol

It's truck. Under the discussion of movement types, per 8.3:

Quote:
8.3B-Motorized units generally have all
personnel and weapons carried or towed by
vehicles. There are two primary classes and one
secondary rating.
• Trucked units are the standard in the game,
and are sometimes referred to generically as
“motorized.” They have enough vehicles to carry
the entire unit, but not enough to assign one to
each individual sub-unit. Trucked units generally
dismount some distance from combat.


I take references to motorized movement allowances as meaning trucked unless a unit is marked as tracked or it specifically says tracked.

Thanks for the reply.

The rules in this game are some of the worse I have read.

Why couldn't R14 have made it clear it was Truck Movement rather that MMP (Motorised Movement), which leave it vague, or at best having to refer to another rules to find the definition of MMP and then interpret which is which.

Yes, should just simply have said truck MP, rather than trying to use 'motorized' two ways.
