Turn 3 German Player Move First/
Russian Player Defensive First Fire / Final Fire
1. Turn 3 Russian Player ceases Defensive First using 82 mm Mortar to save ROF and Ammo
2. Defensive Fire is carried out By Rule / in Two Parts/
3. Defensive First Fire conducted during Opponent Move Phase vs Opponents Moving Vehicles or Infantry
a. Defensive First Fire Dice Rolls /vs MOVING TARGETS are subject to Modifiers , added to To Hit /Infantry Fire Table Fire Power Dice Rolls
a.1 Modifiers , vs Vehicles Generally , are Added to To Hit Dice Roll making Target Harder to Hit
b 2. Modifiers vs Infantry , Generally are based on # of Infantry Move Factor Per Hex and either Moving in Open -1/Non Assault Move -1/
that can be further Modified by Terrain Effect Modifier/TEM/ Hindrances/ Smoke
4. During Play, Foregoing Defensive First Fire, requires Waiting until the Opponent has Completed all Moves of any Units during the Opponent Move
Phase, to avoid Paying High To Hit Modifiers, and detrimental Loss of Rate of Fire/Out of Ammo , per that Defensive Fire action
5.After Opponent completes Move Phase, That Move Phase is Considered Over, and all Units on Map no Longer receive Benefit of Modifiers such as
+2 for Moving/ Unless That Vehicle Remains in Motion. Other Modifiers such as Small Target/Large Target/ Smoke/Hindrance/TEM Still Apply
1. Ordnance that Changes Covered Arc during Defensive First Fire, is Subject to +1 to + 3 To Hit Modifier along with any other Modifiers that
Apply During Move Phase
2. After Switching Covered Arc, During DFF, can Wait until Opponent Move Phase is Over, to Fire During FINAL FIRE. The +1 to +3 Modifier for
Changing Covered ARC would No Longer Apply during the Part of Defensive Fire AFTER Opponent Move Phase is Completed
3. Ordnance/Mortars in some cases have Smoke Capability that can Blind Formidable Unit Counters, impervious to Weapons on Hand
a. Special Ammo is Listed on Back of Counter a either S for Smoke with S # Availability or HE # for High Explosive/ Jg PZ IV (L)
Recap:
Opponent Move Phase / Defensive First Fire are conducted at that Time
Defensive Final Fire takes Place after All Moves taken Place/ Units that Fired During First Fire and Maintain Rate of Fire may Fire During
Def Final FIre/ Units Marked with First Fire/Final Fire , that Fire at Adjacent/Same Hex Units/ Fire One More Time under Sustained Fire
Breakdown Penalties/ To Hit Dice Roll Serving as Morale Check vs Crew
