Well, what do you think they would do? Hang around and wait to get 
flattened? If troops are dug in, that is, occupying field defences (as 
defined on p.13) then vehicles will simply drive over them and the
will not be affected (unless they are fired upon. Any other troops, 
including those who are In Position will simply move to the side out of
way. Any In Position marker will be lost in this case.

All the weapons listed on p.29 use the D8 GPE artillery rules on p.40.
fire against infantry targets also works as described on p.40. The

unit. The missile may be affected by any EW units around (see p.52).

The weapons that use thir _own_ IMPACT value are vehicle mounted

Count the number of white skull markers placed during the close combat
stunned results count). Personally, I would say that the check for
effects after close combat requires a Reorganise action (as it does for 
casualties from fire fights), but it doesn't actually say that on p.42.

Sorry, we have not yet generated vehicle stats for any vehicles other
the ones given in SGII. However, this would be a good discussion point
this list. Let's see your ideas folks!

The diagram on p.59 showing 3 crew for a LKPzW VI is incorrect - it
be 2 crew as on p.69.

A Phalanx indeed has only 2 crew. Its an APC, not a tank. The crew are 
commander and driver. The two roof mounted DFFG/1s are installed in
mini turrets and are fired by the driver and/or the commander.
