Sneaking up on Tanks


A discussion ensued last evening with regard to "sneaking up on tanks"  that I thought I would do a bit of follow-up on.  Here appears to be the general consensus on the forum:


"The key for no DF from assaulted tanks is that the infantry which did not shoot moved only 4" (assault range). The Infantry also has to assault from concealing terrain (buildings or woods or crop fields). And this affects only the tank team within 4" of concealing terrain. Any other defending tank team outside of 4" (within the 8" bubble) gets to defensive fire. Since this has all been mentioned before, view this as a summary."


Furthermore, trenches themselves IAW the rules are not considered to be concealing terrain.  It appears, therefore, that infantry that are concealed in the open cannot benefit from the "Sneaking up on Tanks" rule even if they are dug in.
