Rocket - rule clarification

  • 2007 AAR League

    1. Can a rocket move and fire in the same turn?  Can Germany move a rocket one space towards Russia and then fire it all in the same turn?

    2. Can rockets fire from transports?

  • No on all counts.

    Here are the reasons:

    #1:  Rockets originate from AA guns.  AA guns can ONLY move in non-combat.
    #2:  Non-Combat Movement rules specify that any land unit moved/engaged in combat may NOT move in non-combat.
    #3:  The “Rocket” could only be moved toward Russia in non-combat, which is AFTER the phase in which Rockets fire, so you cannot move then fire.
    #4:  Any units on a Transport are considered Cargo.  They cannot attack or defend while on a transport, and they die if the transport dies.
