Yes. A soldier carrying a rocket launcher can be transported on a supply
vehicle and it can be reloaded indefinitely from any supply vehicle
within 5 ft or supply depot within 10 ft.
> If so how is that different from a 40/1 tank?
A number of differences:
1) The soldier must be mounted on the vehicle to move around the field,
then dismounted to fire.
2) The rocket launcher must be reloaded after every shot.
3) Tanks ignore frontal hits
Regarding soldiers that can move under their own power, we assumed
everyone would use standard, un-powered figurines for infantry so the
rules currently reflect that. However, the hobby is all about
innovation, so *if* (and that's still a big "if") infantry exists that
can move under their own power on the battlefield, then they will be
welcome on the field ... probably with a 21-gun salute :-)
