I've been playing some battles for a few weeks, reading forums, manuals, etc etc etc. CMBN 4.02. I seem to often hit a similar problem which I would like some advice about. Defenders behind a hedgerow: I build up a base of fire, and pretty much suppress them. Then I advance some unit(s) a bit to the side of the defenders (e.g. I flank them). In some cases, there is a suitable hole in the hedgerow, but if I send units through it, the defenders often are still alive enough to shoot them up. Another choice is to blast a hole through the hedgerow in a suitable place, but still, when units go through, they take fire. A third thing I've tried is to wait until units have reached the hedgerow, then change the suppressive fire to light (Y) and then hunt (U) the units that are on the hedgerow down toward the defenders without trying to cross to the other side. In some youtube videos, I see units approach the hedgerow and throw grenades over, but I don't seem to have the knack to get my troops to do that (poor training, all my fault 8-). So, in short, any advice?
Is there a reason why small hedgerows in FB can be crushed by tanks and in BN not? Playing FB today I wanted to drive around a small hedgerow (as I always do in BN) and found out that the tank crushed it. I opened BN and tried the same think but the tank couldnt. I am using the newest version of BN.
