* Corrected a problem that sometimes made fortifications too hard or too easy to spot.
* Panther "shot trap" on the lower turret mantlet (potentially) deflects shots downward into the hull as expected.

* Corrected an issue with command & control values being promptly updated when splitting a squad.
* Tiny explosions don't damage tank tracks so much.

* Light wounds to crew are slightly more likely to cause AFV bailout.
