    An asteroid has hurtled towards Hearth, on the Colony of Homefront. There, a giant crater exists with high amounts of persisting heat activity. Signs show that it is a xeno form threat.

    >especially infantry

    Yeah, I've been thinking about this, and it might be reasonable to deduct the cost of deploying any unit from the recognition that it gets for its kills in that mission. So a bitank starts counting kills at 6, predator at 11, and so forth for purposes of gaining promotion or other special things.

    Obviously, tanks and such are worth more points if you kill them, so it's not too bad for units that have the explicit purpose of popping high-value targets.

    Some sort of limiter should be put in place, at any rate. I know that I've got something like thirty-five, forty kills, which is pretty ridiculous and doesn't much account for the power of the predator chassis. Sure, I've made more of a difference in battle than most people, but at the same time I damn well better have made more of a difference because not doing any more than the average footslogger would be a sign of total incompetence on my part.

    Knight is not a class conducive to longevity, nor to getting large numbers of kills. They're always in the front (so they die first) and don't have the ability to hit enemies at range (so others tend to get the kills).

    Not going to argue that they haven't proven highly effective when used in the past, but I'll stand by my argument. Engagement range has been getting larger almost every mission, and we've been getting ever more ranged firepower.

    In this mission, the enemy killed almost everything they touched and our general tactics involved trying to shred each group before they could effectively reach us. Or at least that was what I was thinking when choosing who to blast.

    Yes, a group of knights equipped with drones could effectively engage and destroy in melee to good effect, but that's not a paradigm that any other unit uses. Except colossi, the giant version of knights, anyway, and they are far less vulnerable.

    All that said, >>12964969 is probably the critical point here.

    (Oh wait, some writefaggotry because I feel like it and I don't want to do my work ATM).

    Major Walker watched from the view screen as the last of the Pelicans lift off from Hearth. As the Pelican climbed higher and gained speed, a flight of Storks flew from the direction it was headed, leaving towers of fire in their wake.

    The Major snorted in anger. Command wouldn’t clear any air strikes, yet in the end, they were going to level the infected area anyway. He shook his head in frustration. He could have saved more of his men’s lives if they had let him call in some air strikes to begin with. He could have saved more of the civilians if they’d let him. But no, bureaucracies and politics prevented him from running the operation his way.

    He sighed once more, dabbing his cigar in the ash tray. Evergrad was likely to have his ass for this. And this time, he didn’t know if Fierstrom would back him up. Penny-pinching tightwad Overseer probably couldn’t realize that if he could do things his way, it would probably cost less in the long run. Instead of having to call in a Colossus and a Chimera, he could have called in one, maybe two air strikes, and gotten the same results. But no, he had to follow brass, politics, and protocol, all to appease the higher-ups who only saw numbers, not men.
    >> [CO] Maj. Walker !IMYfe1j54Y 11/29/10(Mon)03:10 No.12965655

    “Numbers and men, huh?” Walker quietly whispered to himself. What did Fierstrom think of Bravo and the Sword of Damocles? What did she think of the men and women following her – following him and the Admiral – as her personal Executor Unit? He heard Overseer Evergrad say something about Fierstrom being some big-shot politician’s daughter. While Walker wasn’t “one to judge on blood,” as he would often say, he couldn’t help but wonder if the views she expressed that day wasn’t the result of that. Any other higher ranking officer would have had Walker order his men to hold a suicide line to allow the civilians to escape; then would have left them there to die.

    But no, instead she gave him and Weird a rather free reign to do what they wanted. And she had even commended him for his choice to conscript the members of the terrorist “Galadorian Liberation Force” instead of executing them outright! Yet later, she would forget that his men were, well, men, and would occasionally treat them as automatons of sorts.
    >> [CO] Maj. Walker !IMYfe1j54Y 11/29/10(Mon)03:11 No.12965659

    Another heavy sigh from the Major. Just what did she think of them, he wondered? What did she think of HIM? Probably not highly, not after that “Capture the Flag” simulation. He stared into the glowing embers of his cigar before bringing it to his mouth. “Women and politicians. Can’t ever understand either one of ‘em,” he muttered, before taking a drag from his cigar.

    “Sir, did you say something?” McMillan asked.

    “Nope. Just get the boys back home and in the barracks, would ya?”

    “Sir, yes sir.”

    A final thought passed through his mind. Were they seen as nothing but pawns? He shook the thought from his mind. There would be time for that kind of thinking. But now, it was just another day, and another battle won, with more reports and debriefings to be made. Maybe if he was an automaton, this part wouldn’t be so unpleasant.

    >And done. Hope you enjoyed some insight in your CO's mind.
