Data sheets for my Arab-Israeli Crossfire.
Some musing on Cavalry and Mounted Infantry in Crossfire. Standard Crossfire doesn’t cover this. My musings are primarily based on ideas by Daniele Varelli on the Crossfire Discussion Forum. Cavalry is divided into Charging Cavalry – who fight mounted – and/or Mounted Infantry – who dismount to fight. Usually a player must choose at deployment whether his Cavalry is “dismounted” or “mounted”; normally they cannot mount/dismount during the game.
It is fairly common to find yourself in an ineffectual fire fight in Crossfire. I’ve captured some musing on these “Boring Fire Fights” by people with opposing perspectives. Nikolas Lloyd believes ineffectual fire fights are a flaw in the rules. I think they are realistic and points to poor tactics.
The Spanish Civil had a lot in common with WWII, but there were some key differences. I’ve got a separate page on the historical Spanish Civil War Order of Battle. Here I have attempted to explain the organisation of the dominant formations as they would appear in Fuego Cruzado – my variant of Crossfire for Spain’s wars.
