(Answered) Infantry weight vs. building CF and collapse
« on: 17 November 2020, 13:13:19 »
Does infantry unit weight count against a building's CF for weight limits, to check for building collapse?  It's not much of an issue with foot and other 'light' infantry, but when field guns and mechanized movement types are used the unit weight can exceed the initial CF of medium buildings, and the CF of heavier but damaged buildings.

Edit:
TW (corrected fourth printing/Atlas cover), page 167:
"If the total tonnage of units on any single level of a building hex exceeds the hex's current CF (except Level 0, the ground floor, see Basements p. 179), the entire building hex immediately collapses."
