Super-heavy Rockets
The massive 30cm rockets used by the NW42 rocket launchers are slow to load and therefore the full battery is not always available to fire on command. A Volks Rocket Launcher Battery equipped with 30cm NW42 rocket launchers uses the Super-heavy Rockets special rule.


At the start of the game, place a Full Salvo marker with a platoon equipped with 30cm NW42 Super-heavy Rockets. Remove this marker after firing an Artillery Bombardment.

If a platoon with Super-heavy Rockets does not have a Full Salvo marker when it fires an Artillery Bombardment, roll a Skill Test for each Rocket Launcher able to fire in the Bombardment. Only those that pass the Skill Test can fire as part of the Bombardment.

Place a Full Salvo marker on a platoon with Super-heavy Rockets at the end of any Shooting Step in which every Rocket Launcher in the platoon was able to fire an Artillery Bombardment, but none did so.
