Back to try this after a looong break - it's like learning it anew. So, I've two questions, if anyone can help:
Playing Rhino as Allies, I order the Brits to a town with screen orders at end. Tanks and APCs. Off they go. Half way there I count perhaps 12 hinds hovering around the destination, mid resolution phase, and the single AD asset I have (also heading for that town) starts shooting off SAMs. Has some success, but as the turn progresses it's clear there will be still 6 to 8 Hinds left when that single AD unit has dried up. All my units continue regardless along their ordered route (they're all set to screen at end, all on hasty move), ignoring the situation when the Hinds start taking them out one by one. Finally, lead assets are only a few hexes from the destination and there are 6 Hinds picking them off plus soviet ground units, but still they just continue as ordered. So, these questions:
1. What can I do to make sure that instead of plowing on regardless my units stop on contact - especially significant contact like this - unload and seek cover? My APCs especially just drove straight on right beneath the Hinds and were all picked off at liesure, so that vehicle and human cargo were all destroyed. Shouldn't they have stopped on contact (with a hasty screen order) and taken defensive postures?
2. I have - in many scenarios, it seems - very little by way of early AD assets, yet there are Hinds etc swarming all over. What am I meant to do?
