Welcome to Armoured Corps.

These wargame rules allow players to command a combined-arms battlegroup fighting battles during the third world war.

Scope

These rules are designed to be quick to play with large forces from a single company to multiple battalions while still giving realistic results.

The rules are also designed to simulate the role of a formation commander so much of the minutiae of modern armoured combat is incorporated into generalised statistics or dice roles. For example, the formation commander will not be deciding on which type of ammunition (HEAT, APDS etc) each tank will be firing when engaging an enemy unit, this would be left up to the tank’s own crew. So many parts of the rules that may seem simple or “glossed-over” are simply below the player’s (acting as overall commander) level of command.

Sequence of Play

Various sequences and methods of unit activation were considered however it was decided to go back to the classic “I go, you go” sequence (albeit with interruptions form an opponent’s units on overwatch).

Morale

Morale has been heavily simplified to a single dice roll at the end of each turn for any units that have come under fire and been suppressed. This determines if they fall back, continue fighting or give up, surrendering or leaving the battle area.

Ground Scale

The approximate ground scale of 1” =100 metres was chosen as it would allow for realistic weapon ranges to be depicted on a reasonable sized table without being able to fire across the whole area, allowing more emphasis on manoeuvre and positioning of units.

What is the scale for the vehicles? Is it one model = one vehicle or one model = (platoon/company/etc.)?

Thanks...I'll pass. For micro armor, I really don't like the one model = some size unit rules.

There are combined arms? (infantry, artillery, air...) or only tank on tank

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
