Apart from running over them and taking casualties is there anyway to spot them first?

I believe recon units might be able to spot adjacent mine fields, but I would have to verify that. I know they can spot NBC effects at one hex.


Work on Southern Storm continues and we will hopefully have news about our new website and even whispers of Beta Testing soon!

I have dropped mines on a road in a hex adjacent to an enemy (don't believe it was recon, but I'm not 100% sure). They were very clearly moving down the road, but the next movement that unit took was off the road and basically around the minefield. Perhaps if they have LOS on the hex when the mines are deployed, they are immediately visible?

FCRS uses the same icon for emplaced minefields (placed prior to scenario start, and not spotted until bumped upon) and for scattered minefields (artillery delivered FASCAM, delivered during the scenario, and spotted by all upon delivery).

In Southern Storm, we'll be adding a bit more depth to this, and we'll use separate icons for emplaced minefields and scattered minefields.

I vaguely remember that sometimes recon units can spot a minefield before running into it.
