I used to play Microarmor back in Spokane about 20 years ago.

The rules we played by were in laid out in these red and brown covered flip books. Each page detailed a specific unit. For example the T34 would have
a whole page dedicated to it laid out in the exact same way as a page for a Sherman.

It would list armor locations all over a tank and how many millimeters of armor a tank had in that location.

It would also list all the historical round types the unit had, the various armaments, rates of movement, as well as all sorts of factual data. At the bottom of the chart was a listing of percentage chances of hitting with each of the various rounds and armament configs for that unit (for a tank what the various main guns fired and how accurate they were )

For example the 76.2mm F-34 on the T-34 would have ranges from 0-2, 2-5, 5-10, 10-15 or suchlike and below would be a percentage to hit at that range, and how many mm of armor it would punch at that range dependent on the round fired.

and it was measured out in inches or cms (I forget which)

I seem to remember it being associated with the scots guard regiment at the time.

If anyone can tell me what the rules were called or who published them... or hell... where I could get my hands on a copy. I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks, Rick.

That name may really help out someday. At least now I know what it's called, and hopefully I can find a copy of the set somewhere.

I also dropped you a line on your admin email at your website.

Thanks again.
Steve
