Of course. However, it should be "threat" that dictates the movement not
rule limitation. If some one wishes to zoom his vehicle across the
field he places it in risk of been hit by any anti tank weapon that
him. I am not advocating that people start throwing tanks all over the
table. Tanks don't normally drive around by themselves, they are in
Unless you wish to fight tank units then they will not be there.
tanks are not the only vehicle in existence, and it is these I am
about. Support Vehicles, etc.

they prove I am any more the athourity on warfare in 2185 or whatever

like. I just want to see if there are any ideas on how to make the game
smooth the way I would like.
