So my buddy and I were about to play a vehicles only match this weekend when the question was brought up whether or not a pilot can take some of the damage received to the tank that they pilot. By that I mean:
SSU vs. German, the SSU player is using a Lenin with Nickolai which has taken 3 damage after damage resistance from a German Ludwig. Can Nickolai soak 2 of the damage and pass one to the vehicle or must the vehicle assume all of the damage?
I presume that the vehicle must soak all of the damage but have been unable to find anything to either effect from re-reading the Zverograd book.
Any and all oppinions/help is much appreciated.
