A hex is exactly what it is in 1/160 scale. The ground-scale and the height-scale in CAV are the same, except for Aircraft and some vehicles, for model-cost reasons. Each turn is supposedly around 6 seconds.

Not silly questions at all.

 

1 Hex = 1 inch = about 15 feet (Figuring N scale is 1/160 and therefore 1 foot = 160 feet, 1 inch would be 160/12 or 13.33) (Actually, the hexes are a bit bigger, but you get the idea)

 

Turns are a bit of an abstraction in terms of time scale, but it represents just a few moments. (Obviously to have a jet swoop in and strafe a target would take less time than to have an APC land and infantry deploy)

I Guess that Depends on how the Infantry are deployed, and if they have any Say in the matter. :poke:

 

Not that I would wish it on anyone, but *DUMP* is alot faster than "please remain seated until the ride comes to a complete stop" :blink:

I would guess closer to 60 MPH.

 

All I Remeber is that 60 MPH is = 88 fps.

 

88 feet = almost 6 Hexes. :blink:
