I'm confused by "Tough".  It seems to make a unit the same when fired at to flank/rear as frontally?

So a Tiger platoon is "tough" meaning you don't get the flank/rear bonus for shooting at that aspect?

If so, how does that square with the allied tank tactic of having to get round the flanks to hit Tigers where they could penetrate?
My historical wargaming site:


Tough negates the +1 Dice for shooting into the flank/rear or +1 Dice for close assaulting in the Flank/rear

However Tough does not negate the -1 Save modifier for being shot or close assaulted in the flank


Ah ok, I read the tough rule as negating all modifiers. Thanks.
