It seems to me that the -1 cover for moving in open ground shouldn't apply to armoured vehicles, but the rules appear to indicate that is does.

Does the -1 apply, or have I missed something?

The rule only apply to Foot Unit and the rule is called Foot Unit Cautious Movement.

Where did you see that the rules appears to indicate that it also apply to vehicles?

2 4 . 6 Open Ground
Open ground is the default terrain
type for all games in the series. It has
the following stats:
Leg Move Cos t : 1
Tr ac k Move Cos t : 1
Wheel Move Cos t : 2
Cover : 0; or -1 (negative one) if the unit is currently activated for
a Move or Assault order.


Quote:
Uni t—Any rectangular (guns and vehicles) or
5/8" square (infantry) counter. A unit will have
three small black bars in front of its name if platoon-
sized; one if squad-sized. The three unit types
are infantry, gun and vehicle. Units are either
fresh or hit.


I can't find anything in the rules that would exempt AFV's.

Sorry, I was sure this question was about the Conflict of Heroes serie... lol!


...

As for FF, see 35.3 Combined Arms Movement.

But still, what about vehicles?

I've always played that the -1 cover for movement in Open ground is for everyone. That seems to be clear from the rules as quoted.

The -1 cover applies to *all* moving units in open ground.
