I've been messing around a bit with the free version 0813c and noticed that the water in all eleven bundled maps seems to be fordable by all the units I tried (tanks and infantry) and with a fast speed.

Is this gonna change in the commercial version so that not all rivers and lakes are fordable by every unit? I guess they are not all supposed to be amphibious units.

In the commercial version rivers are impassable by default, and all of them can be set to passable/impassable/frozen in the battle settings, or alternatively the scenario designer can paint the river crossing points in the deep water areas.

Ummm how deal with them amphibious vehicles (or vehicles that can cross them with minimal preparation)??? you can force them cross river to prevent they enter in "BMPs of the lost bridge"???

With infantry... they can carry boats as equipment and you can do like in Steel Panthers made they use them if you want???

Thanks.

Currently the only way to cross a deep river is to have 'water crossing points' designated by the scenario designer. These turn the deep water into shallow water, and it's then passable to all units.

I see, thanks, this is something with a heavy impact in other wargames because you can have nasty surprises if you base your defense in rivers and soviets decide "walk on the waters", this is one of the strongest points in soviet side and know if they can do it or not is important.
