River crossing in AK47?
« on: May 18, 2020, 10:16:20 AM »
Hi guys,
   Have had an AK game with a river, where objective markers were both sides. My river is a ‘Last Valley’ one, 2’ft sections 10” across, it does have a Bailey bridge section. Two of the river sections have small islands which we use as fording points for infantry. But my question is about amphibious vehicles! l have Russian BTR60’s, BRDM-2’s, & PT76’s. We have been allowing them to cross the River terrain at minus 3” movement, like the penalty for infantry crossing Within terrain. Is this within the rules, bearing in mind we only have the Original set...... Mark

Hi, don't recall that being in the rules.  Your solution is in the 'spirit of the rules'  and it is your game so you can do what you like! Seems like reasonable solution to me.

Hi Howard,
   Many thanks didn’t seem outrageous, don’t want to unbalance the game. 👍

The supplement for the original rules covered rivers from a boats and LVTP point of view, but nothing that helps your particular situation. I think the solution you came up with works well.
