Cluster Shell


Cluster Shells are special munitions fired by Long Tom, Sniper and Thumper artillery. The shells are designed to explode in midair, showering the area below with miniature bomblets. Cluster shells are particularly adept at inflicting damage on an opponent attempting to take cover within defensive positions.[1]


Game Rules[edit]

Infantry in a hex hit by Cluster ammunition are considered in open terrain regardless of any defensive fieldwork, while 'Mechs and other vehicles resolve such hits as a Shot from Above. Units hiding within a building are protected, although the building itself may take damage as per normal rules.[1]
