Questions regarding contact report sharing

Recommended Posts

A scout team without radio spots an enemy position, when withdrawing the scout team still "knows" where the enemy position has been seen the last time (represented by the darkened symbol). When this scout team now moves into the close proximity of an HQ with a radio...

Is the HQ unit informed about the enemy position?

If yes is the contact report the HQ has received from the scout team shared on the radio net?

I'm pretty sure the answer to all of those is yes. You can have a scout team run ahead, spot something, then run back and tell someone with a radio, then the info spreads through the radio net until everyone connected knows about it. It could take a few minutes for it to spread around though. It's especially important in the WW2 titles. In the modern war titles, the force sizes are usually smaller and every squad has their own radios so information spreads quickly, but in WW2 you get those huge battles with multiple large formations sometimes not connected to the same radio net, like multiple companies or battalions that don't have a higher HQ represented in the scenario. In that case, you can use a squad (XO teams are good for this) as liaison units that act as runners between companies, so that the spotting info from one company gets shared with the neighboring company.

Yes.  The link below provides a more detailed response. 

 

Here is part of the same topic but it was buried pretty deep.  Thought you might find it interesting also.

Xnt - finally a suitable role for XO's other than using em as medics or scouts.
