It's sooo Hot out here...
Had a question as we finished this one up today...
The Americans get Priests during this scenario, yet the rules for on-board artillery are not added until a later scenario (section 63). So...do we just use them as SP Guns? Tanks? Artillery?
Correct, Unless you want to read the rules and have them apply.
Also...Priests have H6 ammunition, which does not effect infantry, but the 105mm on the counter is overscored (meaning it ONLY effects infantry) - so, can this unit load different types of shells base don its target? If so, does this effect game play other than using a different procedure for resolving a successful hit?
Thanks in advance!
Correct. Heat ammunition, albeit a weak 6 number, is used to destroy armor effectively.
The overscore indicates HE ammunition ONLY. The H6 is a depletion Number and limits the ammunition for that weapon.
You can still attack armor with your 105mm overscore, with reduced effectiveness as you are using a different TK column.
Hope that helps.
