I'm currently waiting for my set to arrive, and I've been reading the rules. However, I have a problem understanding the rules regarding terrain protection.
On p. 13, in the picture with the reference card for Towns & Villages, it shows a "-1" and "-2" for infantry and tank respectively. In the paragraph below it says
"The soldier and the tank icons indicate the defensive capabilities of the terrain. In this example, attacking infantry units roll 1 less die, and attacking armor units roll 2 less dice."
The wording on p. 14 for Towns & Villages says
"...When battling an enemy unit that is on a Town hex, infantry
reduce the number of Battle dice rolled by 1, Armor reduce the
number of Battle dice rolled by 2..."
Here it is my problem with understanding comes in. "Forest" have the same wording as "Towns and Villages", but in the center picture at the bottom of p. 13, it says the tanks rolls 2 dice instead of 3. However I would think that the tank rolls -2 just as the paragraph above says for Towns and Villages, thereby making the tank roll only a die (3-2)? Which is correct?
A - The number applies to the unit attacking, making the tank roll 2 less, implying that the example of the infantry in the forest being attacked is incorrect.
B - The number applies to the unit being attacked, implying that the paragraph above "Forest" is incorrect.
