As Lischima's opponent, I can confirm this happened. His Hetzer was in an "Improved Position" hex (the infantry hexes).

Baruk suggested we reset the server and reload. Seemed to fix the problem.

Does MMN allow locally saved games? If so, in cases like this, it's super useful to have a saved game. Just save the game locally and attach it to the post. In that case, the MM devs can load the saved game and see why the vehicle can't move. Maybe it's a bug, then we can fix it. Maybe it's correct behavior, but we're just not communicating that to the user well; in that case we can update the UI.

They restarted the dedicated host (causing a restart of the MegaMek server) and reloaded the game, but the issue did not duplicate. So this is probably not a bug but something akin to a corrupted memory state of the application, caused by the hardware or VM layer it is running on. I would write this issue off unless it can be duplicated from a saved game.

MMNET does not allow locally saved games but we can get them from player-hosted games.
