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.

  • Targeting a unit on a Countryside hex in ranged and close combat - unit will ignore 1 soldier symbol and may ignore 1 flag.
