Hi Lads , played my first small game today , one on firing , my PZ4s were in a fight with M4s, both of us in the open what would we need to hit? on page 38 example would say in the open 4.5.6 , however on the fast play sheet it has testing for casualties Full AFV 6, so do we need 6s or 4,5 or 6? . also as a base is a platoon, would it mess up the game if I did house rule the platoon can fire small arms at say an enemy platoon ,but also fire  its PIAT at a tank?..i am ex infantry and 3 sections would fire ,and leave the AT lads to deal with the AFV? apart from that did seem a good game and flow well, thanks glen

4+ to hit in the open

I can't recall what the 6+ refers to, it may be artillery, or it may be small arms vs AFV

If you want the IATW to fire at different targets, it hardly sounds game breaking. Although it may raise similar requests for other units with different weapon types.

AT firing against targets in the open is 4+ to hit.  i.e. M4 Shermans against PzIV's
I've had a quick look at the QRS and I'm confident that the 6+ vs full AFVs is for Off-table artillery and close air support attacks.  (as is the 5+ vs open-topped AFVs.)

The 6 is arty, infanty with no upgrades can only close assault AFV's.

Hi there Glenbrooks

Yes, the QEF is currently under-update to accommodate initial errata and to add some clarifications.
+6 is for off-table artillery
It is 4+ (or a 4, 5 or 6) to hit in the Open.

Welcome aboard

It is in hand Glen - along with the Korean War supplement for BKCIV ... with a First Indo-China supplement to follow.

We are also working all hands to the pump on CWCII. A not insignificant task.

But the 2nd edition QRS is underway  Cheesy

Cheers
