When infantry receives fire what posture do the rules and fire table assume infantry is in: standing, kneeling or prone?
Posture has a significant effect on target exposure to direct fire. If we assume a standing infantryman has a profile percentage of 100, kneeling would be approximately 55 - 60% exposure and prone could between 20% or less.
Artillery effects are also affected by infantry posture. According to this source (https://nigelef.trip.../wt_of_fire.htm), "Effects and Weight of Fire", a lying person would receive 1/3 the effects of an artillery round (ground burst).
So are our infantry assumed to be standing, kneeling, lying down or some blended abstraction of these when taking fire?
