Two quick questions:

A) Can howitzers intercept cruise misdles?
B) Can cruise missiles fly over crateers in the Ogre map?

My guesses are:

A) Yes
B) No

Any advice is more than welcome.

I am sorry. Another question please!

During overrun combat, INF attack value is doubled for eack infividual squad. Doesn’t this mean that if INF targets Ogre’s threads it does double damage?

Many thanks.

Yes

How about this one: In overrun combat can a 3INF stack combine fire against ogre treads? I think no - all INF fight separately.

Yes. But not remarkably well:

Any armor unit with attack strength 3 or more ........ 11 or above

Yes. Weapons can shoot over craters.

A) Yes. Any armor unit may try to intercept a Cruise Missile. The chance to do so is dependent upon the attack strength of the unit, which is modified based upon the distance the CM has traveled.

B) Yes. Terrain has no effect on flying Cruise Missiles. (Cruise Missile Crawlers, on the other hand, cannot enter/cross a crater)

Yes. It still has the same chance to hit (i.e. roll a 5 or 6), but if successful, the squad does double damage.

You are correct. All Infantry are divided into 1-squad counters at the start of an overrun.

I screwed this one last week, then (I combined fire on threads form INF in overrun combat on threads, damn).

Many thanks for your answers!

It really doesn't change the expected outcome unless the ogre has two or three (or three-to-six in an overrun) treads to go before it drops to the next M.

Single-INF shots blur out a run of bad luck better, but that's just a stats class filtered through my superstition.

Infantry can still combine attacks in an overrun; they just can't combine defense in an overrun, right?

No - in an overrun, it's every squad for themselves. This also means they have to be targeted separately, which permits a 3/1 INF to survive attacking something that gets less than 3 shots first. Of course, even a Mk I can hit 5 separate INF targets if undamaged, so it's still low-percentage move until you defang it...
