Special Rules
Medium Tank Company HQ (2nd A.D.) - p.233
Hedgerow Cutters
When a tank fitted with a hedgerow cutter attempts to cross a Bocage Hedgerow, it successfully crosses on a roll of 2+ rather
than a Skill Test. If it fails, the tank Bogs Down on the hedgerow as normal, but ignores the Belly Up rule (see page 58 of the
rulebook).
If it crosses successfully, then any other Fully-tracked Tank teams adjacent to the hedgerow can follow it through on a roll of 2+
instead of a Skill Test as well.
Spearhead
Any force from the US 2nd or 3rd Armored Division (but not the 4th or 6th Armored) Always Attacks.
When they are attacking, the player may make a Spearhead Deployment move (see page 261 of the rulebook) with one platoon
that is not a Reconnaissance Platoon.
Tank Telephones
All Stuart and Sherman tanks (except those in a DD Tank Platoon) are equipped with Tank Telephones.
If a Tank team with a Tank Telephone and an adjacent Infantry team did no move in the Movement Step and are not Pinned
Down, the Infantry team can use the Eyes and Ears rule (see page 195 of the rulebook) to Reveal one Gone to Ground enemy
team to that Tank team as if the Infantry team was a recce team.
If other tanks in the platoon fire, they must have their own Infantry team pointing out the target, or continue to treat the target as
Gone to Ground.

Parachute Rifle Platoon - p.181


Gammon Bombs
All Carbine teams in a Parachute Rifle Company HQ and all Rifle/MG teams in a Parachute Rifle Platoon carry Gammon
Bombs giving them Tank Assault 3.
Master Sergeant
Parachute Rifle, Airborne Engineer Combat, and Airborne Divisional Recon Platoons use the German Mission Tactics special
rules (see page 242 of the Flames of War rulebook).
Recon Platoon (2nd A.D.) - p.242
A Recon Platoon is a Reconnaissance Platoon.
