about Smoke shell

Hi,Guys.I have a question about Smoke. ;)

The Rule says we can fire Smoke shell using tank guns,AT guns,or morters.

How many times can we use smoke shells?

In the rule,about Tank gun, I think once per game.

about morters, I think we can fire smoke every turn( we can choose normal or smoke in every time)

but,how about AT gun? I think it is likely about Tank gun. so we can use it one per game.... :?

Smoke is very useful and important in the game. please tell me the answers.

thank you.

Hello,

There's no official limit to the number of smoke rounds that can be fired by any weapon.

Not sure how many smoke rounds were issued to tanks or AT guns, I know tanks took quite a few as they were used as a part of the doctrine of assault. Don't know about AT guns though.

I think considering how long a standard game is that I wouldn't put a limit on the number of rounds, especially as I would rather my tank was engaging the enemy rather than just there to provide smoke cover.

As we always say once you have the game it's down to you. If you'd rather limit the amount of smoke to makes its use more tactical you can. May be worth considering giving more to the Attacker in a scenario and less to the defender as they're more likely to have it to be used to support an advance.

Thank you very much,Mark :D

I see. There's no official limit to the number of smoke ;)

I have read the page 52,Shell types in the rule book, it says "In the case of Smoke rounds, only one may be fires in a game"

so, I thought Smoke of tank gun and AT gun can be used once per game. :?

this is a very nice WW2 miniture game ;) I play it in Japan with my friend.

you know we Japanese are poor at English, so we will have some questions.

please show us the answer,at that time. :P

thank you.
