That's a load of stuff. Should be able to handle itself well in a few situations (f'nar f'nar).

Hedge row cutters are a bit rubbish (we don't have enough bocage scenery), spend those points on a 50cal for one of your half tracks.

Call all the hedges bocage for Martin's game. Then he get's his points worth, and screws over his opponent to boot.

Boccage screws over everyone! Even with hedge row cutters!
