3. Op fire is defined in the rules as able to respond only to moving units. It would be great to also be able to use op fire to respond to enemy units that reveal themselves by firing - i.e. "overwatch" fire. That would allow tanks to "hunt" - using 1/3 movement to watch and respond to enemy anti-tank fire as they advance. I would limit this to vehicles vs. anti-tank fire since such things REALLY tended to get their attention. Any thoughts?
This sounds like a good rule - my initial preference would be to not limit this to vehicles vs. anti-tank fire, though different proficiency roll modifiers might make sense for:
- Vehicles vs. anti-tank fire
- Vehicles vs. other
- Infantry vs. all
- Guns vs. all
Question: Could this 'overwatch fire' lead to a chain where a unit coducting OP Fire could trigger an enemy unit to conduct OP Fire, that would in turn trigger a friendly unit to conduct OP Fire? Thougts Jim?
