Q & A

Q. As I understand CG14, any location with a Good Order MMC is a strategic Location?

A. Correct.
 
Q. Must the Russian Control hex J4 to purchase the I6 Moabit Prisoners RG?
A. The footnote you are referring to (Footnote 16) is referencing the hex that contains the Station. Just north of the Station is where the Prison actually was. So the answer to this question here is no.
 
Q. Can the +1 TEM provided by the “built up” Reichstag be increased to +5 TEM (total) if a ground level Reichstag location is subsequently fortified as per B23.9?
A. No, +4 is the maximum TEM [EXC: Indirect fire].
 
Q. Did HOB use the 0 TEM for bridges as per B6.3 or did it use the -1 TEM listed on the Chapter B Divider?
A. B6.3.
   
Q. May OBA/Ordnance Smoke be placed on a bridge hex?
A. Yes.
 
Q. What are the dark hexside depictions along the dark green hexsides near the Spree River?
A. Cliffs.
 
Q. Is AA fire allowed from a Roofless Building location?
A. No.
 
Q. What happens to a Set DC that ends a CGS but has not yet been detonated?
A. If the DC is in a Controlled set up area it is retained by the side that Controls that set up area.  Otherwise, it is treated as non-Set DC and remains in its current location as any other un-possessed SW in an uncontrolled set up area.
 
Q. Do Moabit Prisoner leaders use Partisan leader rules?
A. No, they use Partisan leader counters only to differentiate them from regular Russian leaders.
 
Q. RePh 8.621: May DC be purchased as “Set” by spending the FPPs to do so?
A. No. A DC must be in a side’s OB in order to be set. The BRV table and its footnotes are designed to replace the KGP I/II table/footnotes altogether.
 
Q. RePh 8.6242: If a bridge is partially destroyed can a vehicle which ended the previous CGS on one side of the bridge set up on the other side using only the partially destroyed bridge as its crossing point (assuming that the vehicle is setting up in friendly territory)?

 A. Yes, but immediately prior to setting up that vehicle the owning player must take a bridge Collapse DR as per 11.313. (Note: make sure to inform the German player of this attempt so as to determine the current weight limit of the bridge).
 
Q. Can dug-in tanks become CE? Can armored cupolas?
A. Yes. No.
 
Q. The Narrow Road leading out of the Customs Warehouse follows the D10/F10 hexside. Hex D10 is a Roofless Building whose ground level is covered with Debris. Does this Debris negate the Narrow Road (O.1)? Do units using the Narrow Road have to roll for Bog due to the Debris?
A. Yes. Yes.
 
Q. Is a Russian AFV under Recall eliminated or retained?
A. Eliminated, unless it is due to MA disablement.
 
Q. Is it correct that a single Setup Area for Infantry can actually be one or more Setup Areas for vehicles due to Roadblocks (in fact, possibly Isolated Setup Areas)? If so, what about the presence of terrain that doesn't “absolutely” block vehicle movement, such as Barricades?
A. Yes. Roadblocks/Barricades are considered impassable to vehicles unless removed during the RePh.
 
Q. What about MA that was disabled neither from a Repair dr of 6 nor by a previous RePh 8.6142 failure (e.g. a circled B10 gun that rolls a 10 while under Low Ammo)?
A. Yes, that would still be a MA breakdown but all Low Ammo counters should be removed during RePh 8.602.
  
Q. BRV 9.214 states a vehicle crossing a breached Barricade can be targeted for an Underbelly Hit. Can the vehicle that ‘creates’ the breached Barricade be so targeted? If so, what about if the Barricade is eliminated instead of only being breached?
A. No and no. Only when crossing a Breached Barricade is a vehicle subject to underbelly hit.
 
Q. RE: The Exit VP the German receive for crossing the river, do the Germans receive Exit VP immediately or at the end of the scenario?

A. Such VP are awarded only at the end of the game.
