PSW 231 8-RAD: forward or reverse?

Recommended Posts

This jolly handy unit has an 'alternate rear-facing driver': very useful, I'm sure, but I cannot seem ever to get the orders right.

Should I *reverse* this unit to get the benefit of the rear driver, or should I 'forward' the unit in the 'reverse' direction?

Under my command these units have a limited life-span ... one of them decided to rotate on the spot so it could "reverse" out of being a sitting duck ..... I can only assume the alternate driver was having a cigarette break, or whatever the Germans did instead of brewing up a nice cuppa ... I guess he had a heck of a suprise when the Crusader nailed him.

Thanks for folks' patience in answering all my newbie questions - it's only since PBEMing that I've needed answers!

Whatever advantage this was intended to simulate . .. . at the end of the day, the movement command delay and top speed in reverse are slower than forward like every other vehicle.
