Sorry for breaking from the flow a little…From the discussion on the trail run of modifications BA’s armour

“Perhaps the StuG should have suffered an additional +1 to hit on its first shot only due to not having seen the Sherman at the start of the turn?”


Yeah I forgot about that and I think it makes sense for both tanks to be penalized in the first turn (in some way. And incorporating it into the “to-hit” makes most sense. My worry Rod is there’s already going to be a +1 for moving into position…will a tank want to risk it at all. And perhaps thats the point….wasn’t that the case in reality anyway.

What about the point Jack makes about penalizing a stationary tank rather than the moving one?
