I'm prepping J102 The Yelnya bridge, set in October 1941. The Germans have a mixed OB consisting of SS infantry from the Reich Motorized Division and a two groups of vehicles, one of them from the 10th Panzer Division and the other are elements of the Aufklärungs Abteilung.

There's a specific SSR:

Quote:
SSR 5. German 468s/248s and 548s/238s are SS, with underlined Morale and broken Morale 1 higher than printed.


One of the vehicles from the 10th Panzer Division (which is not SS) has APCR ammo and I'd like to know if C8.2 applies. Let's remember the rule:

Quote:
8.2 ELITE: Increase the Depletion Number of an armed-vehicle/weapon by one for Elite forces. An armed-vehicle/weapon in a printed scenario is Elite for this purpose if so specified by an SSR or if the historical formation to which it belongs is either SS or Russian Guards. For DYO scenarios a force is considered Elite only if the Majority Squad Type of its side's total OB is Elite


As the vehicles are not from the SS Division I tend to think that C8.2 does not apply, but then the Majority Squad Type of the German OB is SS, so I have a doubt.

Do you think that C8.2 applies?

I would not apply it.
The Majority squad specification is for DYO.

I agree. Especially since J102 is pretty recent and MMP has gotten (thankfully) in the habit of specifying if an OB is Elite for Special Ammo. I bet if you review that same Journal (7?), you'll see other scenarios with that in their SSRs.

Thanks, lads. It was to ease my mind.

Spencer, yes it's J7 and, for example, scenario J100 has a nice SSR specifying Elite for C8.2 purposes. Good catch.
