Advanced Squad Leader Boot Camp #8: Defensive Fire Principles 1

Boot Camp #8 is all about defensive fire … First Fire, Subsequent First Fire, Final Protective Fire, Final Fire … and how they work with moving and non-moving units.

Join the Supporter Roll Call:

Here’s what’s covered in this tutorial …

In the 8th Boot Camp I go through all four types of defensive fire, and how the mechanics of simultaneous movement and fire works in ASL. Just to re-enforce how defensive fire works, I will be doing another video of a short skirmish between moving and defending units.

The goal of ASL Boot Camp is to present rule and tactical discussions for new and veteran players. New Boot Camp Exercises posted … well, when I make them (hint: there’s no schedule!). Also, if I screw up a rules interpretation (we all do) in any of my videos, PLEASE post in the comments so we can correct it!!!

Please leave feedback here or in the Youtube comments. Thanks!
