Hi guys,

Have been playing Battle Academy for ipad for the last week and have almost finished the desert campaign.

I am confused though... On one of the defensive missions, I deploy my tank units to the hills and tell them to hold fire. However, as soon as an enemy unit moves within range, they open fire, thus giving away their position and spoiling my ambush...

This seems to be a problem with tanks only. My anti-tank guns and infantry seem to follow my "hold fire"instructions much more strictly!

Any ideas??

Hold fire is an ambush order. It only applies f the enemy cannot see you. If you are visible you will open fire.

Thanks Ian, that makes sense.

So, a quick question on visibility then:

If I deploy a tank directly on a hill before the first "real turn", will that tank be visible or hidden on the first real turn? From my experience on the "Hold the pass" mission, it looks like freshly deployed tanks are NOT hiidden on the first round...

Thoughts?

Andre

They should be hidden - maybe something else can see you. If an enemy unit is on a hill they'll be able to see on to your hill.
