Each commander of a unit must make a LDR check when any of the following
apply in a given round.
*	Nearest CO is incapacitated or killed
*	More than one member of squad is incapacitated or killed in one
*	Unit under air, artillery or flame thrower attack that round.

Unit in cover	+2	Unit under air, flame or rocket attack	-4

If the unit is already in cover then the unit must move directly towards
the table edge at Run speed every turn until a LDR roll is made by a non-
fleeing CO or the table edge is reached. If table edge is reached then unit
is removed from the game. Units that are surrounded (i.e. enemy blocking
their retreat to the table edge) surrender.

6.0 Thrown and Indirect Fire
All off-table weapons require an on table spotter or CO with radio contact.

DEX is used for Thrown weapons to hit where INT of the spotter or firer is
used for indirect fire weapons.

Each weapon has an area effect template that is placed before the hit roll
is made. All bases of characters and vehicles that the area effect template
touches is considered to be attacked and damaged is applied accordingly.

A critical failure for off table artillery means that the shot is not fired
where as a critical hit is treated as a automatic hit.
If a building is a target of an indirect fire attack and a critical hit of
3 is rolled then it collapses incapacitating all inside.

6.1 Indirect Weapons
Weapon	Damage	Area of Effect	On or Off Table	Notes
Grenade	4	2	-	AP factor of 1
Grenade - smoke	-	4	-
Lgt Mortar (up to 80mm) 	5	3	On	AP factor of 1
Hvy Mortar (over 80mm)	6	4	Both	AP factor of 2

6.2 Modifiers to hit
Modifier	Bonus / Penalty	Notes
Firer under fire last round	-2
Spotter under fire last round	-2

6.3 Scatter
If indirect fire is missed then roll 1d6 for the direction that the area of
effect template is moved in; where 1 is directly away from the firer or
friendly player table edge.

	Distance the area effect template is moved
	Weapon	Distance in inches
	Thrown	1d6
	Mortars and HE AFV weapons	2d6
	Artillery	3d6
	Bombs	4d6

Shots that have scattered only cause (v damage rounded down.

6.4 Targets in cover
Characters that are in hard cover towards the centre of the area of effect
receive damage reduced by 4 hits on each dice rolled.
Characters in buildings that have not collapsed from hits from indirect
fire and are touched by the area of effect template receive damage reduced
by 6 hits on each dice rolled.

7.0 Damage to buildings
Buildings can be targeted by direct fire weapons that are capable of high
explosive rounds and by indirect fire area effect weapons such as grenades
and artillery.

Buildings can take cumulative damage up to their hit points. Once a
building takes more than its hit points it collapses from cumulative
damage. If the building receives more than half of its hit points of damage
from a single attack in one round then it collapses.

Building hit points
Buildings Material	Average Number of hits per floor
	Small 4x4	Medium 8x8	Large 12x12
Wood	12	24	36
Stone	24	36	48
Reinforced	36	48	72

8.0 AFV!/s

8.1 AFV Movement
AFV!/s movement rates are based on terrain. Cost for moving 1!1 outlined
Type	Road	Open	Rough	Swampy	Forest	Turn 60"*
Wheeled 	(v	1	2	4	4	1
Tracked	1	1	1	2	4	2
Reverse at (v speed.

8.2 AFV Combat
	Rolling to hit
AFV!/s use Fire Control ratings as a base number to hit.
AFV!/s cannot fire if vehicle has spent more than half its movement points.

Modifiers to hit for direct fire against AFC!/s and vehicles
Modifier	Bonus / Penalty	Notes
Target size	var	From AFV!/s details
Vehicle buttoned	-2	Or under fire in previous round
Target moving fast	-2	More than 6!1
Target in soft cover	-2
Target in hard cover	-4
Firer on move	-4

	High Explosive shots against soft targets
Place Area Effect Template on board where shot is to be made.

Modifiers to hit for high explosive fire against infantry and soft targets
including buildings.
Modifier	Bonus / Penalty	Notes
Vehicle buttoned	-2	Or under fire previous round
Firer on move	-4

If Shot misses then use scatter table and procedure in 6.3
Anything that touches the Area Effect Template takes hits. However the
damaged is halved and rounded down.

Critical Hits and Misses
If a roll of 3-5 is scored when rolling to hit then a Critical Hit is
Roll	Result
5	Automatic hit
4	Vulnerable location hit, shot penetrates armour automatically
3	Critical hit, target KO!/d instantly

If a roll of 16-18 is scored when rolling to hit then a Critical Failure
Roll	Result
16	Weapon misfired
17	Weapon jammed requires an action roll on INT to un-jam.
18	Weapon jammed requires an action roll on INT -4 to un-jam.

Check the diagram to determine where the shot has hit the AFV.

Penetrative and Non-penetrative hits
Once a hit is scored against an AFV then the Penetration value of the
shooter is compared against the armour factor of the vehicle. If the
penetration value is less than the armour value then the round does not
penetrate the AFV. However the crew will still need to make a moral test.

If the penetration value is equal or more than the armour value then the
shot penetrates and damage may be done to the vehicle.
Three dice is thrown and HE modifier of the weapon type is subtracted and
the result is compared to the table below.
Modified result	Effect of Damage
5 or less	Vehicle explodes causing 4d6 damage to anything within
6 - 15	Vehicle damaged, Roll d6 1-2 MG!/s destroyed, 3-4 vehicle
immobilised, 5-6 main gun destroyed. Moral test for crew.
16 or more	No damage, moral test for crew.

	Risk to crew
The crew are not represented in the game independently from the AFV!/s.
However if a hit is scored on a AFV then the crew must make a moral test.
They test as though they are a NCO as per infantry test. Failure of the
test means that they move backwards towards the table edge at (v speed. If
the AFV is immobilized and the crew fails the moral test then the crew
abandons the tank.

	Over-running infantry and crews
Each character will need to make a successful DEX roll to avoid being over
run by an AFV that touches or moves through its base in its round. Any
infantry that fail are killed. Any static pieces such as ATG!/s are

	Close assault
Characters can close assault AFV!/s and their success depends on numbers
attacking and the type of weapon being used.

Add to the base factor of 5
	+1 for each character using grenade, sticky bomb or Molotov.
	+2 for each character using satchel charge, panzerwurfmine, or Boys
	+3 for each character using bazooka, panzerfaust, Number 68 AT or

A roll equal or less than the modified close assault factor means that the
AFV is immobilised. A Critical hit KO!/s the Vehicle.
