  A fortified position token may not occupy the same hex as a wire token, damaged bridge token, another fortified position token, building rubble or a waterway hex.
Movement A fortified position token has the same movement restrictions as the hex the fortified position token occupies.
Combat

A unit that moves onto a hex that has a fortified position token or that is already on the hex, has the same combat restrictions as the hex the fortified position token occupies.
Targeting a unit on a hex with a fortified position token, the unit will ignore 1 soldier symbol, and may ignore 1 flag.
Ignoring 1 soldier symbol, and 1 flag, is in addition to the protection of the hex the fortified position token occupies. A fortified position token protection will stack with the protection of the terrain hex it is on.
When reserve artillery targeting dice have 3 or more dice On Target, remove the fortified position token from the hex and continue with the rules governing what happens to the terrain when 3 or more dice are On Target.

Fortified Position Examples:

  • Targeting a unit on a Countryside hex in ranged and close combat - unit will ignore 1 soldier symbol and may ignore 1 flag.
  • Targeting a unit on a Forest hex in ranged and close combat - unit will ignore 2 soldier symbols and may ignore 1 flag.
  • Targeting a unit on a Building hex in ranged and close combat - unit will ignore 2 soldier symbols and may ignore 2 flags.
  • Targeting a unit on a hill hex in ranged combat - unit on the hill hex will ignore 2 soldier symbols and may ignore 1 flag.
  • Targeting a unit on a hill hex in close combat and the attack is up hill - unit on the hill hex will ignore 2 soldier symbols and may ignore 1 flag.
  • Targeting a unit on a hill hex in close combat from an adjacent hill hex - unit will ignore 1 soldier symbol and may ignore 1 flag.
  • Targeting a unit on a Trench hex in ranged combat - unit will ignore 3 soldier symbols, and may ignore 3 flags.
  • Targeting a unit on a Trench hex in close combat - unit will ignore 2 soldier symbols, and may ignore 2 flags.
  • Targeting a unit on a shell crater in ranged and close combat - unit will ignore 2 soldier symbols and may ignore 2 flags.
