Continuing the AP Direct Fire example from the Basic Game, everything remains the same with the exception of the Hit screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-2-39-30-pmAngle, Hit Location and Damage determinations. It is determined that the M2A1 Bradley’s Rear/Side Hit Angle is applicable [in the Advanced Game there are four hit angles (six when including the mirrored right and left sides)].

The Soviet player rolls (100) for a second time with a result of 24 [rolls two different colored 10-sided dice]. The 2 tens result indicates a TS [turret side] Hit Location. Comparing the Penetration Factor of 12 [circled in red on the BMP-2 card] to the Armor Factor of 11 [circled in black on the M2A1 Bradley card], the shot penetrated. The 4 units result indicates that the Bradley is damaged [circled in blue on the BMP-2 data card]. The M2A1 Bradley is marked with a Turret Dmgd counter [damaged counter with the “Turret” side facing front].

Since it suffered damage, the M2A1 Bradley must check for Bail Out; it has Seasoned Unit Grade. The US player rolls (100). The result is 57; there is no modifier. Since 57 is greater than 30, the crew stays put [had the result been 30 or less, the M2A1 Bradley’s crew would have bailed out effectively putting the vehicle’s out of action].

It is determined that the BMP-2’s Front Hit Angle is applicable. The US player rolls (100) with a result of 57. The 5 tens result indicates a HF [hull front] Hit Location. Comparing the Penetration Factor of 12 [circled in red on the M2A1 Bradley card] to the Armor Factor of 4 [circled in black on the BMP-2 card], the shot penetrated. The 7 units result indicates that the BMP-2 is Knocked Out [circled in blue on the M2A1 Bradley data card]. The BMP-2’s counter (and any other counters) is removed from play and replaced with a KO counter [Knocked Out counter].
