Or you could charge one activation by that unit to cross the wire or 2
to cross and clear the wire (make a hole in the line).

How about these suggestions:
	  Wheeled**	 Tracked      GEV***	      Grav
Size 1	  as Infantry	 Ignores*     Difficult       Ignores*
Size 2	  Difficult	 Clears       Poor	      Ignores*
Size 3	  Ignores*	 Clears       Poor	      Ignores*
Size 4	  Ignores*	 Clears       Clears	      Ignores*
Size 5+   Clears	 Clears       Clears	      Ignores*
 * If the AFV Parks on the wire Infantry may cross on top of the
vechicle as 1" poor terrain.
 ** Assumes Size 2+ Wheeled vehicles use High Density/Bulet Proof/ATV
 ** Assumes GEV is using spring steel skirts. If it has rubber/cloth
skirts, it moves as infantry.
