John D salt has it, as usual in my view. Op fire in modern games is essential, but you only get so much fire – if you op fire, you don’t get to in your following turn. That’s how old BKC did it IIRC

There is all sorts of gamesmanship associated with it though – where movement is one at a time, it was common to walk a squad of troops past the enemy, in the hope he would op-fire at them so you could then rush him with something else. that developed into moving said squad, with a smile at your foe who smiled back wryly…. and then NOT rushing him, just to annoy him ๐Ÿ™‚

but yes, no op-fire = not a proper WW2 wargame in my view
