Hello Gentlemen,

I m striking ( with arty)an enemy unit on a card free of friendly unit.

But my MG are in LOS of that unit and they are still firing the unit so they expend ammo.

Any solution to cease them of firing and not expend ammo?

According to the rules I canno find anything.

Thanks

You could move them to another card, but short of that there's only several gamey/risky options I can think of:

Send a unit onto the card being shelled, then call a cease fire. The Machinegun will not automatically fire on the card again as a friendly unit is now present.

Pop HC Smoke on the card containing the machine gun to block their LOS out of the card.

Standard way is to retreat your MG, or just wait for the target to move/get destroyed.

Welcome to the small nuances of the game. Keep your MGs back when you advance and only move them forward if you want their firepower, otherwise you will always run out of ammo on them.

You can also convert your MG team to a fire team to save ammo, but it's not recommended as you would have to pass a rally check to flip it back to its MG team side.
