Flames of War Characteristics:
Iron Heart: Pascucci himself and any platoon that he leads always pass Motivation tests on a roll of 3+.
Aim For The Tracks: Pascucci makes excellent use of his tank’s cannon, aiming for the weak spots of enemy tanks.
Never Surrender!: If Pascucci fails a Company Morale Check, it will not affect this turn, but automatically fails the next turn. However, every platoon in the Italian force must take an immediate Platoon Morale Check. If they pass, they ﬁght on, otherwise, they are immediately removed from the game counting as Destroyed.
