Water Hull Breach
« on: 28 March 2021, 01:39:07 »
Hi, I'm new to Alpha Strike, I had a question regarding hull breaches. If your mech is in level 1 water (partially submerged and getting partial cover), do hull breaches apply, or does your mech need to be fully submerged in water of depth 2 or more for it to happen?

I would also like to know this.  The book makes it clear that "fully submerged" and "partially submerged" are two very different things, but then goes on to use the term "submerged" ambiguously, particularly in the sections where it describes the criticals related to being in water...

If it just says submerged, then it means partially or fully submerged.
Partially submerged units do check for hull breach.

Thank you!  I had tried searching, but for whatever reason did not find that.
