Under the current (DBA 2.2), an element attacked in front and flank suffers a -1 penalty, while an element attacked from (and forced to turn) to the flank or rear suffers no penalty. This seems to negate the historically disruptive effect of attacks originating from the flank or rear, so this variant rule is proposed. It was originally suggested by Hwarang in the Fanaticus Forum, and is also supported by DBMM's treatment of flank and rear attack.
Forthcoming. See also Fanaticus Forum.
