Tank Shock Close Combat?
Well, I played a game yesterday and had the opportunity to tank shock a unit in close combat. Those I play against are not big fans of this, (mainly because I can, and did, shoot those guys.) I was just wondering if this is a legal move. I have found nothing against it. I know that you can't shoot a squad in close combat, but last I checked Tank Shock isn't shooting.
For any that may be wondering I tend to line guys up in lines so when you assault me you have to assault with your guys in a nice line, and in the rare circumstance I might just have a spare Rhino lying around in the perfect spot to go through your guys but not mine. What we ended up doing was I Tank Shocked the guys they failed moral and the squad fell back ending their assault on my guys. I then shot the guys off the field.
Any responses on if this is allowed or not would be greatly appreciated.
I'm watching you.
