After a recent question about Close Assaults involving defending AFVs with passengers, I've decided the rule needs to change.
I'm currently playing it with the defending AFV suffering no ill effects from a failed assault (since AFVs aren't affected by small arms fire, or Casualty Points), but it just doesn't feel right.
Here's the new rule:
An AFV defending against a failed Close Assault may be immobilized by the attack. Casualty Points from a failed assault are applied to the AFV, with the owning player making an immobilization die roll. If the roll is equal to or less than the CPs the AFV is immobilized, and marked with an Immobile! Marker. If the roll is greater than the CPs there is no effect. If the AFV is carrying passengers, the CPs may be applied to the passengers as Collateral Damage (see 14.64 Collateral Damage to Passengers). Passengers may not be pinned to fulfill Casualty Points; they may only be reduced or eliminated (for their full CP rating). Any remaining CPs, after eliminating passengers, must be applied to the AFV with an immobilization die roll.
Now, you can take out that Tiger, or at least immobilize it if the assault fails!
