Is it possible for a LOS to be traced through other units, or are they judged to degrade/block LOS? I went over the rules (admittedly at midnight, and with the beginnings of a headache) but couldn't find any reference to it. The Ameritrasher in me says "yes", but this is my first "full" wargame, so maybe there's a convention that I'm not aware of.

Still loving this game, though!

A ship in port is safe, and that's just what ports are for.

IIRC, vehicles degrade LOS. Other units have no effect, but you can't fire into a melee hex.

At the risk of incurring The Wrath of Kev, the answer is in the Terrain Effects Chart. Vehicles and Wrecks are Degraded terrain.

In thid kind of wargames, units are not XVIII century Prussian soldiers holding the line but groups of squads usually prone in covering terrain like ditches or bushes waiting for the squad leader to give orders to advance or shoot, so you can fire through some hexes of units, as it simulates that usually you don't even clearly see them unless they move. The spotting rules also reflect on this.
