Short-range artillery

Post by grancapitan » Tue Nov 29, 2011 4:19 pm

In the instructions I see a short-range artillery of 3 MU, what is the effect on the troops? Is there something like "shrapnel" in FOG-R? I could not find answers in the instructions ....

Thanks in advance!

The two distances to remember for Artillery are:-

Over 8MU's - Artillery can target any unit subject to line of sight and arc of fire (2 base widths as long range)Inside 8MU's - Changes target priority to the equivilent of short range but maintains Arc of fire as 2 base widths
Inide 3 MU's - Becomes short range and therefore arc of fire changes to only 1 base width.

There is no implied or explicit change of ammunition etc in the rules and the POA's stay the same at all ranges.
