Two German infantry divisions, each stacked with a Stormtrooper regiment, attack a French infantry division across two unabridged Marne River hex sides as per 3.2a:
1) If the French division is forced back or destroyed can the attacking units advance after combat over the unabridged Marne River hex sides into the vacated hex?
2) If so, do they put up assault bridges behind themselves?
3) Say only one of the two attacking stacks had a Stormtrooper, could both stacks still make their 1/2 strength attack?
4) Are stormtroopers generic as far as attack supply are concerned? Ie a PA division breaks down and one regiment stacks with a division of another HQ ... Can the "ex-PA" Stormtrooper receive attack supply from the different HQ.
5) Say the two stacks in the example are PA divisions of two different HQs. Can one of the two HQs provide combat shifts to that attack, even though one of the stacks is PA units from another command?
6) Do HQ units exert a ZOC?
Here are some (unofficial) answers;
1. Per 3.2c, yes, the German player can advance into the vacated hex and produce an assault bridge.
2. Yes, they can, see 3.2c.
3. I would think so. Per 3.2a, only one Stormtrooper needs to be involved.
4. Stormtroopers are generic. They can receive supply for any HQ.
5. Per 1.9c, HQs can shift any combat unit within its supply range. So only one HQ is required HQ to shift the attack.
6. Per SCS standard rule 2.0; only units with a raw attack combat strength of 1 or more have ZOCs. So, no, HQs do not have ZOC.
Hope that helps,
