One German Inf on A2 and a stacked pair of German units on A4. American have a unit on B1 and a stacked pair on B3. US wins initiative and is moving to get off the board (metal moonlight scenario). The stack units move into A3 allowing opp fire from A2 and A4. My questions are, does each unit in the German A4 space get to fire at each unit in A3 separately, in other words does the German stack both get to fire at 1 unit of the Us stack and then both fire at the other unit of the US stack? Also if the unit on A2 takes advantage of opp fire at the German stack, does it then get opp fire at the US unit which moves into A1 on the same US movement? Hope thats not too confusing. Great Scenario, hard to beat Opp Fire with a good German defense along row A.

No, each attacking unit can Op fire only once. Your German stack in A4 would have to choose its targets. Once a unit has op fired it cannot do it again that turn.

Re: Opportunity fire? Metal in moonlight scenario 2nd ?
A German unit has moved into the same space as US unit and survives the US opp fire. It is the US movement turn, can another US unit enter that space and is there any German opp fire?

Good question.

The Movement Phase is broken into:

* Move ground units already in play (if desired and if able to move)

* Resolve Opportunity Fire (if any)

Since each player resolves each step in the order of initiative winner first, and then the other player, all German and US movement would occur before any op fire is actually resolved.

So, basically, the German unit moves into a space with a US unit... the US player may move another infantry unit into that space if desired... then I would play this situation as follows--- allow the original US unit only to OP fire (since he was in the space when the German unit moved in-- he triggers the OP fire). Don't allow OP fire to or from the other US unit that moved in after the German unit moved. The German unit would likely be tied up with the original US unit... and neither side controls the space at this point. OP fire is intended to be triggered only from a unit or units that completely control a space- not from a unit that contests it (the German unit in this case).

Now, if initiative was reversed and the US player moved first... if the supporting US infantry unit moves into the fully controlled space first, and then the German unit moves in, both the supporting and original US infantry units would get OP fire against the German infantry unit.

Buried tank scenario ?'s
Can a German rifle squad fire at US units in one of the abandoned tanks square? Can a German rifle squad fire at a crewed antitank unit which only has a defense of 1 and how do you distribute the damage? Do you get the points for destroying one of the damaged tanks if there are no units on that square?

I'm assuming you mean in the "A Buried Tank" scenario?

There are two US Shermans (abandoned) without crews placed in that Scenario. They do provide a Defensive Bonus for US Infantry that would occupy the space-- the Defense of the Tank minus 2- so 3... They do not block line of sight. Treat them similar to the "Tiger I Wreck" Feature Tile.

The German Rifle Squad may fire at that unit in one of two ways- they may attack the Gun (the unit itself)- and treat crew survival like any other crewed unit if it is destroyed- or they may attack the crew separate from the Gun. Either way, apply the Defense value of the Gun plus any Defense provided by the space it occupies. There is no damage distribution- it is not split- either choose to fire at the gun itself or the crew (it is easier to hit the gun generally because you use the Vehicle Attack Value minus 2 since it is immobile).

The Germans may attack those damaged / abandoned tanks regardless of where units are on the map. So yes. The tanks are damaged, but still operational if the US can get a crew to them- so they're still a threat to the Germans. They can be destroyed for points.
