Well, using the diagram you've provided, you aren't traversing across the gun's front, so it can't fire a traversing shot. Although you're moving obliquely toward the red infantry, you are still moving towards the gun and not across it, so it can't fire.
Well, no their frontage is to wide so it wasnt something that cropped up ( well it did actually but only becouse a couple of players forgot the bit about moving halfway or more across its frontage!), but the same problem could apply.I notice you haven't mentioned anything about infantry units carrying out the same action.

No I meant assume the gun is already at an angle, pointing slightly across the red infantries front, before blue begins his advance...Big Al wrote:Angling the gun? The infantry already has restrictions on it due to the proximity rule.

The unit has to be moving within 12 inches
Across at least half the units frontage.
and is either charging or moving mostly out of the firing units front quarter
