Default Revetment bonus question

I'm sure this has been hashed out but I've been out of the fold for many years and will likely have more questions.

Revetments add +2 to a defense. Is this before or after terrain bonuses and do terrain bonuses affect the revetment d2 as well if empty?

Example 3/1 inf in forest and revetment.

Would it be :

A) (D3x2) +2 = D8
or
B) (D3+2) x2= D10

Update: I've added a poll.

I've always gone with option "B", as dug in Infantry, in an urban setting, can be VERY hard to dig out.

I would actually lean towards option A. In Ogre Battlefields, units in revetments get a 2-hex bonus to distance for shockwave effects, but that bonus is NOT cumulative to bonuses for terrain. Additionally, they aren't specified as getting any sort of bonus for terrain when empty, so that says to me that the defense bonus for the revetment is added after any sort terrain bonuses of the unit(s) in the revetment...

I've put up a poll since this is something that I thought would be interesting to finally determine.

Another question I had was about 'Archaic armor' as listed in OGRE Mini's.

The MBT has 2/2 D2 M2 and is listed as 1/3 AU. Slightly less than a lt tank due to its slower speed.

The APC is 1/1 D1 M2 and 1/6th au The specs are the same as a 1/1 inf but they don't get any terrain bonuses. They are worth the same as the updated Militia specs in Battlefields

the Field art. is 2/4 D1 M0 and 1/2 au

Have any of these been play tested and/or added to games? How have they worked out and have any changes been made?

To make revetments simple:
1. Assign a size limit that units can add up to. Maybe a small revetment can hold up to 4 sizes worth of units, for example.
2. Add a defensive bonus to all units within the revetment.

Here are some good revetment metal here.

I think the existing rules are pretty good: Small revetments can hold one unit of size 1-3, large revetments can hold 2, or one unit size 4-5; both give a D2 bonus to units on them. The only thing unclear is if the sex bonus is added before or after terrain multipliers, hence this thread. I say after - it appears the majority agree with me, but not everyone.

The what bonus?

I don't think I'm familiar w/ the rules covering that aspect of the game.

Apparently the 6th edition rules are going to have more changes than we realized...
