So we were playing a game yesterday and trying to figure out how a milan team would function in an assault.

My reading of the rules are this.

-Milans cannot fire in defensive fire, because they have a minimum range of 8".
-Milans can't fire when pinned down since they have a moving ROF of -
In an assault, Milan teams need a 5+ to hit, but are allowed to use their AT against side armor if they choose to do so. (which they would)

My friend's position was that they need to hit as an infantry team with the standard infantry assault rating. since a milan team wouldn't be operated closer than 8" to the opponent's team, they can't fire or use that rating.

This is discussed somewhat in the FAQ sheet, but Milans are not specifically mentioned, and the issue is a little vague.

No defensive fire, but +1 to hit in assault for the hail mary side shots.


The army sleeps under the stars
The navy navigates by using the stars
The air force picks its hotels based on the number of stars.....

They assault as standard infantry teams with the +1 to hit because they are 2 man teams.

You cannot use the milan missile AT of 21 as you are inside of minimum range.

"No defensive fire, but +1 to hit in assault"

Regular WG infantry are 4+. Being a small team they are +1 = Assault 5.

"You cannot use the milan missile AT of 21 as you are inside of minimum range." That is correct so they use the standard Infantry TA.

There is no +1, there is a rating. Please just use it, and please don't confuse anyone with a rule of thumb which may not apply to the next army that comes out.
