Counter questions

Post by K-2 »


Just getting started and have not ventured into vehicles at this point. However, as I have been punching out and organizing a couple of order of battles I have noticed something odd. Figured I would throw it out there for the group. I noticed this issue when I was sorting BV German vehicles, but figured I would just wait and figure it out as I went.

However, this morning I was working on FKaC to get the Brits sorted and noticed it again. The issue is that it appears that I some counters for the same vehicle are different from the rest of them. For example, per the British vehicle listing the counter mix includes 6 Lee tanks. Counters A thru E are identical with MG factors of 2/4, however counter F has 2/4/2*. What is the difference?

BTW, I read the Chap H notes for the Lee and found nothing that would help explain why one was different.

This is merely a variant with AAMG installed. See the table on page H50 for the Lee, and see the AAMG column. It's listed at Opt 2 (2 FP). There are a lot of AFVs that have variant MG configurations.

Just pull the counter actually listed on the scenario card and you're good to go.

Neal,

Thanks much for the quick reply. Apparently my reading of Ch H was deficient. I get it now...thanks.
