Can a unit with organic transport but with foot movement (thinking British 43rd infantry mortar units) use their foot movement to climb onto a raised road then flip to their organic movement?
Thanks again

The way the 1.1 Series Rules and WED Exclusive Rules are written this appears to be permissible.


It is addressed directly in The Greatest Day Exclusive Rules though:

15.0 Abandoned Transport
Whenever a Unit with Organic Transport enters a hex that the transport side could not legally enter, either in Column or not, place an Abandoned Transport Marker on that Unit. It has forsaken its organic transport for the rest of the game.


But that is a 2.0 Ruleset. Splitting hairs perhaps, but up to you how to play I guess.

This makes sense in the time scale of the game. We're talking about a couple of days of action. Many motorized units would leave their otherwise vulnerable organic transports and "leg it" into action. The trucks or SPWs/Half-tracks would come up later, mostly at night, to bring up supplies and heavier equipment.
