Errata

Here is all the known errata in Le Franc Tireur products. While we try to maintain the quality of our products as high as we can, some error might still slip by.

In the case you find any errata not listed here in our products, please contact us !

Deluxe pack # 1

Apologies, there is an error with the OOB for FT 202. There should have been 6, not 3, Japanese 3-3-6 squads.

In FT 203 (Hara Kiri Gulch), setup instructions for the US should read "set up on board (d6) on or west of hexrow C and/or on board (d2) on or west of hexrow M"

In FT 204 (Fear Naught), the factors of the A13 MkII are wrong. The A13 MkII should have red 16 MP and armor factors of 3/2.

From the Cellar pack 5

ASL Scenario FT 149 "Tombés pour la France" :

On the Scenario card for the French Order of battle it shows a blank space that has a red (4) underneath the blank space. These are 4 Roadblocks.

ASL Scenario FT 159 "Tangled at Tsangkou" : In the VC, replace "Red Chinese MMC" with "Red Chinese non HIP / non Crew MMC". This is not really an errata, just a precision in order to avoid some sleazy move.

ASL Scenario FT156 Leonov’s Hill Precision to SSR3 : the Russians may Set their DC using HIP.

In SSR6, the German has to designate "prior to play" which forces will enter. Prior to play means "Before Game Turn 1".

From the Cellar pack 6

FT 169 :

The reference to SSR 3 should be ignored.

From the Cellar pack 7

Our apologies... "A Belgian Hero" has been replaced with "Dover Bunker" so don’t be surprised when reading Lionel’s interview included within. This scenario will be published a bit later :)

An errata also for the British set up instructions in this scenario. They should read as follows :

"Setup South/West GG21-GG25-II24-NN24- NN29"

LFT172 : Clearing the LZ Add a US 1/2 turn to scenario length.

LFT174 : Green berets in the VC, add :
- The Britishs earn 1 VP for each Good order squad equivalent (FRD) North of the road 20 Y1 - 20 Y10 at game end.

Add 1 x 236 hs and 2 x ? to German group A

Le Franc Tireur 13

FT 195 "Repair shop at Dangeul castle"

The North is not to the top of the sheet, but to its left, i.e. the US enter the board from the wide edge of board X.

Le Franc Tireur 12 (Out of Print)

FT 145 historical blurb :

Following the victory of People’s Liberation Army on the mainland, the GMD started to withdraw to Taiwan. However, they still occupied the island bordering the mainland in the Straights of Shanghai. On October 25th 1949, the People’s Republic of China launched its troops against the island in the straights, as a first step towards the conquest of the island and eventually of Taiwan itself.

2 errors have been found in the Banzai charge example :

1. The 50mm MTR WP should be dispersed. 2. The wounded hero should be pinned as had spent >3mf on receiving the wound.

Thanks to Aaron Cleavin, from Sidney (AUS) for these ones... and apologies to you all.

Kampfgruppe Scherer : the Shield of Cholm (out of print)

Rules :

- KGS CG21.1 This rule, which is found below KGS CG22, belongs above the latter rule reference.

- KGS.24. The reference should be to II57/JJ57 not CC43-44.

- Fair-Weather roads would be Q45-Q58, HH56 - LL58, T12 and all of its branches up to Q7, T8, S9, U10 ; AA3-Z0, HH3-HH0, QQ5-TT3.

- Also, some of those road hexes have both fair-weather and normal road depictions ex : AA3, HH3. These are Fair-Weather Roads.

- KGS4.51. Clarification : any prisoners of Russian units which rout off map share the fate of their guards.

- KGS4.82. In the second EX, delete the reference to Block 36, replace with Block 39.

Counters : None at this time

Maps/Overlay : None at this time

Player Aides :

- The blow up of the GPU on the back of KGS 15, building KK37 should have small (not large) center dot.

Scenarios :

- KGS 2 : The Russian Offboard Observer is at level 1. Also note KGS 4.2. For the purposes of concealment, the Germans set up as if the Russians are entering from offboard.

- KGS 8 : Top set of German forces, in the set up instructions it should read “….on/west of hexrow HH and IN/North of the gully…”

- KGS9 : In SSR 1 delete the sentence regarding wooden rubble placement.

- KGS 12 : In the first Russian OB listing the set up should read "....perimeter....II18-II33-OO33-OO37-TT37-TT18-II18 [EXC : set up in JJ33 is NA]."

- KGS 14 : German OB in the [EXC : clause] it should read ≥ 15, not ≤ 15.

- KGS 15 : In the Russian set up instructions after “indicated” add “, along the east edge.” Thanks to John Stadick for this one...

Le Franc Tireur 11 (out of print)

LFT 1 Map precision :

In order to avoid the map to be damaged during transport, we printed it with about 5 extra milimiters on several edges so that everyone should cut this extra paper in order to have a regular sized mapboard.

Scenario FT 90 :

The blank counter in the French OB should be filled with a French HMG (6-12). i.e, the French has two HMG in his OB.

Le Franc Tireur 10 (out of print)

FT 80 "One Spanish Hero"

SSR 6 clarification ; if more than 1 MMC have to pass a MC, make a Random Selection. If same drs are rolled, only 1 MMC (Spanish player choice) becomes Berserk.

FT 81 "Dubrovka"

SSR2 : "Place Overlays Wd5 in 48L2-M2 and Wd4 in 48G6-G7".

FT 83 "Go on to Kolpino"

Board configuration picture is ok, the text below is wrong and should read "Only hexrows A-P are playable on both boards"

FT 88 "DER Untergang"

VC : add "at game end"

Aachen campaign

Here are some questions which arose after the release of our latest issue about the Aachen LFT # 10 Campaign Game :

1 - In the text it says that the Americans have 175 CPP throughout the campaign but if you total up the columns of the chart you get 170 CPP.

The correct total is 175 CPP, and these 5 extra CPP have to be added to scenario 4 American CPP total (from 50 to 55).

2 - If the US buys the HW section and trades the 3 x 60mm mtrs for the radio, the Americans forfeit the half squads in the HW section.

3 - The American player may roll on the gyrostabilizer chart to see if purchased American AFV’s (those that are gyro capable) come with a gyrostabilizer. Roll individually for each AFV.

4 - The C2 US reinforcement groups (Medium Tanks) shows a maximum of "2" for one of the scenarios, but a maximum for the campaign as "1". The maximum for the Campaign should read "2".

PF : A precision brought by Chris Brackney, aka VolgaG68 who wisely asked about PF and ATMM avaiblity for Spaniards. Here is the answer :

- not available in 1943 (by the time the Division was retired and sent back to Spain).
- Available in 1944 and 1945 as if Germans (whether Whermacht or Spanish SS units).

ATMM : inherent in Spanish Squad/HS from June 44+.

Thank you to our readers for those questions, and sorry for the inconvenience they might have brought to your games.

Le Franc Tireur 9

Due to the problems during FT9 development, I had been compelled to do the lay out and several other things with no tools for that, and apologize for these bad printings.

Here are the first errata, hoping that there won’t be anymore. Some scenario cards are not readable, so here is the necessary information to play this couple of scenarios giving problems. Once again, we apologize and promise you that next time we will stop using the glossy paper…

FT 60

Remove a 227 in the Croatian OB and add 2 x LMG to the Partisan OB (i.e. the Croatian has 2 Crews and the Partisan 4 x LMG). Thanks to Matt Cicero for this one & some others below !).

FT 61

Add a 228 in the Cossack OB (so that they have 2 x 228 Crews).

  • SSR 4 : SSR 4 : All 5-4-8 / 2-3-8 are Cossacks. They have an underlined Morale [A 19.132 is NA] and are treated as Russians for Heat of Battle/Leader creation/deployment only. They do not possess Infantry Smoke Grenades nor Panzerfausts and use German MGs with no penalty. To form a multilocation firegroup with Cossack units and non Cossack units, a Leader must be present in each location of this FG.

FT 63

  • Partisan OB : Partisan OB : Rearguard Elements of the 7th Proletarian Division [ELR : 5] set up on / East of hexrow F {SAN: 4}
  • German OB : 7th SS Gebirgs Div. Prinz Eugen, II/1 8th Kompanie [ELR : 5] enter on / after turn 1 by the West Edge. {SAN: 2}

FT 66

  • German OB : Marine Troops of the Solta Garrison [ELR : 3 - See also SSR 4] set up anywhere on board 46. {SAN: 3}
  • Allied OB : Unit B 2671st Special Reconnaissance Battalion [ELR : 3] set up on board 18 on / South of hexrow 7. {SAN: 2}

FT 67

In Axis OB, replace "see SSR 2 and SSR 3" with "see SSR 2 and SSR 4".

In Partisan OB partisan, replace "see SSR 4 and SSR 5" with "see SSR 3 and SSR 4"

Thanks to "Doctor No" :-)

Saint-Nazaire 1942, operation Chariot (Out of Print)

Rules

- StN2 : In the last line, change “(A12.13)” unto “(A21.13)”.

- StN8.1 : add to end of the rule : “A K/# result from a Placed DC (or the Campbeltown’s DC) will damage the Caisson. 8VP are awarded for each damaged Caisson (see also StN27.31). A damaged Caisson can only be destroyed by a KIA result.” Chart StN 27.2 shows the correct Damage value for a Caisson.

- StN20 : Add to the end of the ninth line : “which can be placed in any hex of that Vessels Group”

- StN23.1:In the last line, add “remaining” between “DP” and “may”.

- StN25.33. Add “and +2 if StN25.21 applies” after “status counters”

- StN26.5 : Delete first use of next in line 1. Add to the end, “The Campbeltown becomes scuttled if she sinks after ramming the Caisson.”

- StN26.6 Add “beginning” between "friendly Prep Fire Phase" and "in the turn" (i.e., should read : ". . . friendly Prep Fire Phase beginning in the turn after after the Campbeltown’s scuttling DR . . .")

- M3.1 The reference to "Naval-Crews" in M3.1 is erroneous and these words should be deleted.

- M4 : At the end of the second sentence, add : “[EXC : E1.52 is NA, see M11.5]”.

- M4.12 : At the end of the second sentence, add : “ ; moreover, this one hexspine change may only be conducted when the MGB spends MP to enter a hex”. The counter art picture and the counters refer to rule “M4.03” which is incorrect. The referenced rule should be “M4.12”.

- M4.13 : Should read Reverse Motion not Reverse Movement., the counter should read M4.13

- M4.16 : At the end, delete : “(E1.91)”.

- M4.3 : At the end of the third sentence, add : “and is considered a motorized vehicle for Starshell Initial Use (E1.91)”.

- Italian #2 : What is the Normal Range for the 6FP AAMG ? A : 8.

- Japanese #1 : Is the Normal Range for the 8FP bMA/aMA 14 hexes (same as for Japanese #2 8FP aMA) ? A : Yes and Yes.

- Russian #4 : The graphic does not match the text—the text says the aMA is not supposed to be able to fire through the VCA, but the graphic shows it as not firing through the RVCA. A : The aqua colored graphic arc should look like the purple graphic but reversed (flipped over end).

- US #2 : The intro text says "This version was armed with two 18" torpedo tubes . . ." but the MA description says "The MA is four torpedoes as signified by ’MA : TPx4’", and the counter also shows TPx4. The text and counter should refer to only TPx 2.

Player’s aides & Charts/Tables

- StN19.2 StN Gun/Searchlight Defense Table : FF43 and FF44 should read FF45 and FF46 respectively.

- On HMS Campbellton player’s Aid #1, there should be only one CS number and that number is 8. Thanks to Rob MacDonald for pointing it out :)
