Just a quick tongue-in-cheek question. Why can't SUGs charge whole ,severely disordered TUGs ?
It would really change the dynamic when hunting Matt's cavalry!

Change of dates means I cannot come >:(

A forced charge (within 1BW in your example) is still a prompted action. Prompted does not necessarily mean "PLAYED A CARD"

Now including lists of rulers and battles and campaigns.  For those who like numbers I have identified 250 battles and campaigns in the Chariot period (and 1200 in the Classical period).  On to the Early Medieval period.
You have too much time on your  hands, you should get a hobby.  Oh, wait....

Another massive contribution

Is this in addition to the event in April?

Dave Parish and myself are looking for a 25/28mm Magna teammate for this.
Dave is doing Pike and I will do Britannia
Any takers?

Given the above, is allowing shooting when a forced charge is "marked" under consideration for a future version?

It appears nothing is gained and the game is potentially made less enjoyable by not allowing it.

Or is something gained?

There could be a slight command (in)decision to be made.
If your opponent passes in the charge declaration phase and you want to shutdown their ability to subsequently declare a charge (or hold a forced charge), you can pass as well. This means your forced charges trundle off but don't get their shooting. Pretty niche, but I have used the Pass-then-forced-charges a few times to prevent potential enemy charges/holds that I wanted to pause/deny.

The flank zone in MeG only impacts terrain placement. The 5BW  for  SUGs is to provide some initial width for flank operations.

List Queries / Re: Points Systems

I can think of 3 including myself

Despite all that, the army results from numerous uses on https://www.dracostandard.co.uk/ArmyStats do not show any great benefit from using these armies.
Could it be that the points system does a half decent job of putting a value on the good Roman infantry?
Heaven forbid ::)

Is there any limit to the number of cards you can play to negate slows?
Yes 1

Got part of the answer : you do not declare allies during deployment
My u derstanding from the army list text is that you must declare if an UG is from an ally
