I am not going to clutter up this persons thread anymore.
Ummm, no, according to discussions with the guys that wrote it (ie Jervis etal in a Games Day staff open forum discussion and over beers afterwards), he's reading it RAI. It's in there specifically to prevent cheating gits from trying to play the transport shell game, especially now that anyone can ride in anyone else's transport. Reason I asked them is I was the head rules judge at the GW Games Day Baltimore RTT, kinda needed to make sure I had things right...................
As for your no way in hell statement, I'll disagree and put my 25+ years of Intelligence experience against whatever your using to draw your conclusion. BTW, been there, done that. Exercise at Fort Hood, told the unit commander where his vehicles were, who was in them, etc etc. Combination of scouts observation, radio intercepts and arerial imagery. So yeah, it can be done.
