How have folks been playing this?
If you receive a DAMAGE or TRACK HIT result when entering/exiting a building, are you forced to check for BAIL OUT? The Bailing Out section (5.15) only mentions AP/GP fire. The building entry section (6.6.3) also does not state that you do, including the examples, so I presume you do not have to take the BAIL OUT check.

I wouldn't check for bail out when entering a building. That is a different form of damage than say a ballistic round hitting the tank. The damage from entering a building would be more along the lines of the tracks getting fouled and not being able move, stuck if you will.

I remember one time in Somalia we were near the coastline in a M113A2 and got caught up on some rocks. The track actually slid off the road wheels and luckily got stopped by the front road wheel skirt. So we were damaged, but not from any weapons fire. Had I been shot by an RPG in the road wheel, I most definitely would have bailed

Since it's not listed in the Bail Out section, you don't check for bail out. Bail out is an "under fire" response. A crew wouldn't react the same way to damage/track when entering/exiting a building.
