Do you measure from the edge of the deployment area or the edge of the table in the deployment area?

Can you measure from the Reserve edge of the table?

Helicopters fly, they don't teleport, so they have to move on to the table in the same manner as any other team, and from exactly the same places. If loitering, they will move on from the table edge in the deployment area, if arriving from reserve, they will move on from the marked reserves area.

Cheers


We knew that blitzing on was allowed, but then ofc, someone asked if it had to be from your table edge, otherwise you could blitz and assault out of helos on turn one if you rolled your skill checks with your airlanding. The above by Phil Yates on the team yankee forums finally puts the issue to bed.

Makes sense, Russian Helos don't care because they can move and shoot right?

NATO helos have better tow range, so they don't care if they have to come on from the deployment table edge

So for dropping off troops the help has to have not moved in the movement phase?

Right, but it can Blitz them onto the table.. but only within 4 inches of YOUR table or Reserve edge. So I cant claim an objective turn one with a Heli-Assault Landing Company of Speznaz like in Red Dawn Smile

The BMPs are really powerful, but being able to drop infantry anywhere on the table would be good,

Can the infantry survive if the helo gets shot down?

no infantry die instantly.   BMPs are all right.. but fold to any sort of AA type of fire... so its like rock paper scissors BMP - Nato Tanks - Air Power - AA.. circle of life

I mean right now BMPs are uber strong because we are all just getting used to it.. but they cant move and shoot.. and 50 cals take them down.. even Tristan's A10 guns vaporised the unit Smile

Yeah, Arty ciukd do a job on the BMPs too cause ranging in is way easier now and the Russians are hit on 3+

The BMPs are really good against a force of 10 MBTs.. but not being able to move and shoot is a pain..

Yes but the question is for the BMPs what happens when you fill it with sheep then shoot it with a TOW...
go to 54 min ends around 58 min.
