the question is about soviet forces and assets rules.
According to soviet sp. rules you can take 1 full rifle squad with all amunition for free.
2 big push attaker asset gives you free infantry unit identical to the cheapest one you have in the list.
So the question is do soviet recieve free additional rifle squad as it is free (0cost), or should the cost of this unit be calculated as for attrition rules in the faq and than compared to other infantry units?1+December 9, 2019 at 12:36 pm #172426RichardParticipant

The Fortress Budapest book has army lists that disallow the “Free unit” from the Soviet Army book.
The “Big Push” special rule- basically re-instates it- but with a slight variation that it is not inexperienced and armed only with rifles- but a 2nd unit identical to your cheapest infantry unit (if memory serves)
A Soviet player using “Big Push” and getting TWO free infantry squads is exactly the type of player I’d try to avoid playing against!! 🙂2+December 17, 2019 at 9:13 pm #172758
thanks for the answer , but can you clarify where it’s said that army lists in budapest don”t get/dissalow free unit? cause i thought that free unit is an army trait it doesnt depend on the platoon type. ? than in budapest germans dont get buzzsaw rule as its for general platoons?0December 17, 2019 at 11:00 pm #172760NatParticipant
The selectors have a rule that stops the free unit…off top of my head it’s called something like at the sharp end
Basically says that what the selector is for is no place for inexperienced troops.
Can’t comment on the big push rule as I don’t have the Budapest book1+December 18, 2019 at 5:07 am #172763
All,thanks for help .. found the rule…so the problem is only when we try to play missions with general platoons. That resolves the issue..0
