SUGS charging camps.
« on: January 29, 2024, 08:06:55 AM »
A camp is not a TUG but is treated as a TUG for combat.

pdf 6.M.2 "A fortified camp may only be attacked by infantry or elephants; other camps can be attacked
by any enemy, including skirmishers."

So skirmishers can attack camps, but is this ability to attack limited by the restriction on SUGS charging TUGS (i.e. only when nearly broken)?

Can infantry skirmishers attack fortified camps? Looks like they can, but not entirely clear because the "including skirmishers" is omitted.

Skirmishing infantry are still infantry.

That answers one of the questions, but what about the restriction to charging only if the camp is within a base of breaking?

A camp is not a TuG for charging (so can be charged by skirmishers), only for combat (i.e. calculating factors etc.).

Personally I think it is an unnecessarily complicated way of expressing it...
