Default Mines help

Hi,

I am running a TW2k campaign with my group as a kind of nostaglia break from other systems (we have run the original Escape from **, free city of krakow, pirates of the vistula and now are on ruins of warsaw :P) . I am using the v1.0 rules and things have been going well but I have hit on a problem.

I cannot find anywhere the damage tables/details for landmines - the referees charts and equipment list in the rules dont seem to cover it, I have trawled a few places. I particularly am after anti-tank mines as well as anti-personnel.

I have access to most of the printed material - any pointers or help would be appreciated.

Welcome to the board.

Mines are covered in the errata.
Code:
Type                     Dam      Arm        KDR      Burst
Antipersonnel            X10C     X4          10        20
Anti-Tank                X40C     X4          15        30
Claymore                 X5C      X4           5         -
FASCAM                   X30C     X4          15        30

If you can find the Heavy Weapons Guide GDW-525. They are covered in more detail.

Agree Kato but what about the effects. Vehicles bottom are usually very vulnerable to mines and the bottom protection is not covered anywhere. How would you deal with this? Moreover, how would you deal with it when using a vehicle that was made to resist mines such as the "Casspir"? If i understand it well, the idea behind such vehicle is to provide more protection to the crew.

Anti personnel mines don't seem to be that much of a problem however.

Didn't V1 rules have a lower hull armor rating. I seem to remember that being phased out in V2.

I always preferred the V1 system for vehicle damage.

Thanks for the fast response. The table will be useful, kato13.

I have read that the mine on vehicles hits suspension then on to the lower hull. This, if penetrating, would go on to the lower hull's vehicle damage component list.

We will see how this helps my party to intercept the Barons convoy returning to Warsaw with their chemical rounds

I'm not good with v1.0 rules. I have never seen them.

You are very welcome. The are kinda hidden (or missing) from the standard rules.

The V1 vehicle rules are pretty cool IMHO. They actually take into account the internal layout of a specific vehicle type. So hits from different directions will have a different chance of hitting a specific item within the vehicle (like fuel, main gun, commander, ammo, passengers, etc). I use a modified form of the V1 vehicle system.

In general except for the 1 trigger pull always = 3 bullets, I really liked the V1 rules.

Rather than create my own vehicle rules for my Gunmaster T2K conversion I chose to retain the V1 T2K vehicle rules. I am very fond of them.
