This turn spelled the end for the Firestarter, and uselessness for the Tokugawa.
First of all, Major Steiner and the Thunderbolt moved out of the cover of the two buildings, Without any other options, and it already being worse for wear, I moved my Firestarter in an attempt to give both units the worst possible shots. I also moved my Hatamoto Hi into the most open area possible to allow for a good target spread. The Battlemaster, surprisingly, also came out of it's nest with malicious intent, parking right up next to my Firestarter.
The Owens tried to put itself in a position where it could at least TAG Adam Steiner's Mech.
Now comes the Cavalcade of destruction... Both self-inflicted. You might get a laugh out of this.
For my Tokugawa, I knew where the fight was taking place, and that at the current pace, I was not going to get anywhere. In order to get within firing range ASAP, I decided to move at top speed... Well, with that wobbly axel bent near in half, the 60-ton tank pulled a Tokyo Drift at a breakneck 40KPH (For those that aren't canadafags, that's the suburbia speed limit), ripping the axel out from underneath it. My tank had become a turret at the end of a funneling road.
As for the artillery phase, My TAG from the owens missed it's shot against Adam Steiner's mech, so I risked the shot and dropped the crosshairs of the spotting laser over the Battlemaster. The shot was successful, and the massive Arrow IV Missile plowed into the leg of the battlemaster. However, the shockwave from the blast tore through the already weakened armor of the firestarter, and shredded the side torso and XL engine armor, therein, The Firestarter was my first ever friendly fire casualty.
