ASL Boot Camp #27: Target Types Explained

2
ASL Boot Camp #27: Target Types Explained
In this tutorial, I cover the three "target types" that are used in Advanced Squad Leader when firing ordnance. Any time you fire a Gun/SW mortar that uses the C3 To Hit table, you must declare one of these target types before firing. This declaration will determine Basic TH numbers, how TEM DRMs are applied, and how to resolve any hit.

ASL Boot Camp #26: AFV Kill Mechanics
The most complicated part of the To Hit resolution process (once a hit is secured) is against vehicles and the AFV Destruction table. In this tutorial, I continue the example started in #25 of an American 57L AT gun firing at and hitting a stationary German Stug IIIG in open terrain. What are the steps to determine the results of an AFV hit? I'll show you.

ASL Boot Camp #25: To Hit Mechanics
The meat and potatoes of Chapter C are the To Hit and To Kill mechanics. Here we boil down the To Hit mechanic to a small flowchart and a couple of formulas, show the relevant tables used, and step through a very simple example of a 57mm AT gun attempting to hit a German Stug IIIG.

ASL Boot Camp #24: Ordnance Review
Let's finally leave the Infantry ruleset (Chapter A) in the rearview, and move into Ordnance (Guns). But before we jump into the meat of Chapter C and the to hit process let's first go over the 6 types of Guns in the ASL system, and review the information that can be displayed on the counter. Then I show you where to look up that information in the important Chapter H notes.
