[ALPHA] No Differentiated Turret Armour values!

Sat 28 Nov 2020, 22:28

Tanks and APCs with Turrets in the game do not have differentiated Armour Values.

Both 1e and 2e1 (and TW2013, dunno about 2e2 as I never had a copy, though I expect it did as well) ALL had separate Armour Values for Turret and Hull ... for the simple and obvious reason that the real world armour values ARE different for these components.

This is a *serious* shortcoming IMO. It really needs to be changed/corrected even if only as a 'grognard' option.

YMMV.

Considering some designs that put more armor on the turret than in the hull, it is indeed a short coming. And one not too difficult to remedy.

If you dislike something I hope you add it to the dropbox rulebook. Even though FL lurk here posts can drown here among all the threads (both good and nonsense) that tends to appear here.

The problem with that is that it takes SEVEN STEPS of authentication with pictures of Dice where there are two often widely different die faces you have to match which are not easy to differentiate.

Frankly?

If they want to make it THAT difficult it would seem to me that they really don't want any feedback!

I just open the dropbox book (for me in chrome), mark a section that I like to comment and then write the comment.
