Rule text, emphasis mine:

"Any good-order INF, ENG, or HMG unit that starts its activation stacked with a friendly Soviet 45mm or German 50mm unit may drag the weapon unit a total of one hex during movement. The weapon unit does not have to be limbered to be dragged, although a limbered unit can be dragged as well as an unlimbered one. Simply move the dragging unit and the dragged unit together into any adjacent hex which the dragging unit could normally enter. This costs the entire movement allowance and activation of the dragging unit."

According to my reading of this, an unlimbered 45/50mm gun can be dragged unlimbered and then fire, or fire and then dragged as the case may be, within the same turn. The activation only counts for the dragger, not the "draggee."

Anyone disagree?

Yeah, I wondered about the same thing - but presumably only when the gun is dragged in an unlimbered state?

Yep, clearly can't fire limbered. All the fun bits would be packed up to move (ammo, sights, whatever) and the guns wouldn't be pointed upwards!

gulp

Surely though, it would take time to move them. How come they manage to attain that all too rare status of being able to move and fire, thus joining the elect (Armoured trains, rivverboats, M18s)just because a few pesky infantry push them a couple of hundred meters?

Go on - answer that? The way you are going we are heading towards all and sundry being able to move and fire. T34s, PZKFW IVfs, Grenadiers etc etc. Where would we be then? It would be the downfall of western civilisation.

I still think it's the thin end of the wedge, a tendency towards wargame decadence. Reconsider I urge you.

They fire, then move...in the direction opposite the direction they just fired. Oh, and it's a mandatory move, not optional. A few activations and you can ski them right off the map
