    I’m bit confused what can tow this trailer. It is artillery and AA gun, that much it clear. In errata it says “Fixed (counts as a heavy gun for the purposes of movement)”. I assume this means that it cannot be moved by manhandling the weapon, you have to use tow. If so, what is this weapons tow rating? Light, medium or heavy AA gun?

    “counts as a heavy gun for the purposes of movement” – I’d say ‘heavy gun for the purposes of movement’ would require a tow capable of towing a heavy AA gun.  As it’s been defined as both an AA gun, and heavy, it would need something additional to that to vary those existing requirements.

    Thanks, I’ll go with that. So basically only thing that can tow it is some kind of half track.
