Tank on Tank, Flank Attack Clarification

The rules are written a tad ambiguous for Flank Attacks when shot down a spine.

First, look at the rules for Firing Arc, with the best illustration coming from the new system rules....

Let's take an example of a unit down a spine (examples A and B)....

E=Unit Examples are A and B

The game designer, Peter Bogdasarian clarified on BoardGameGeek that if you look at whether the firing unit is in a front hex of the target unit, you are in the front armor, not the flank.

If you can't be a good example, be a horrible warning

Ok, thanks.
