im sure all thats happening is that im missing it somewhere in the book but in terms of the recon catrwd im working on it has riased a number of issues

first and biggest
actions available for single crew tractors becuase a driver cant clear a wpn jam or crucially reload nor can he recover from being rattled

aside from the rattled thing which i think as single crewman he would just have to cope with (one of the penalties of single crewed vehicles) and the fact that if your driveing its not easy to reload a artillery piece even a small one.
a modified single crew action list would look like this
Spot 45% forward
move vehicle forward
turn vehicle 45% left or right
fire gun
reverse vehicle
first stage of reload
second stage of reload

in addition the following actions would be available if the vehicle is at a dead stop
full reload
Spot 90%
Clear Jammed weapon

next item why is there no "weapon" target option?
considering its a wargameing staple to knock out the vehicles gun

additional skills
i feel if a vehicle moved fast it should be harder to hit (especially as vehicles are hit automaticly) for example if a vehicle has moved more than a long in a turn (2 tracked moves ie medium 4" + 4" = 8 1" more than long) get a -1
also just ofr the hetzer players of the world a ability like "low profile" givieng another -1 for example might be of help

these are all just my thoughts and i acknowledge im new to this game so i welcome thoughts and constructive comments from older hands
