Bulk landers

Ive played a couple of games now. And then re-read the rules to see what i am doing wrong or have missed.

With Bulk landers in the last game i had been playing the triple infantry tokens having 3attacks. But are removed by one failed save. Treating them as one token. But reading the rules out suggests that the bulk landers drops3 infantry tokens. Therefore they have3 attacks each and3 wounds. Correct?

Also with that wording, Am i right that they can split off and got to other sectors when they are able to next move? So 2 triple tokens could move and cover 4 sectors.

The Bulk lander and the Infantry are different kinds of tokens.

A bulk lander can only land in one sector. If it does (and is not shot down do to batteries or similar effects) you exchange it for either 3 Infantry tokens or a Battery token. The 3 Infantry tokens have 1 wound each and later on can go their separate ways.

The way ive assumed is that the triple infantry tokens are simply a practical way of representing three single infantry tokens. You could use single tokens instead if you have enough available.

Yes but you must land on the same spot with the 3 tokens from a bulk lander, later on they can separate.

Yes but instead of placing a "triple" token you could place three "single" tokens as long as they are initially placed in the same sector!

Of cours in bigger games the clusters will become very cluttered with tokens so having a few that represents more then one is a good idea!
Or only count ground assets as infantry and represent them with dice.

I never said anything to the contrary.
