    ALRIGHT VUNDERFUL UNITS. VILE ve vwait for our Glorious metallic Captain to be upgraded, ve vill be going over some organizational matters.

    As Per the former Captain's suggestions, we will assign everyone into sub divisions so that our fight jobs vee easier and so i vill not ve too vissy wiz phonecalls vhile ze enemy commander runs avay ya ?


    Gunther and Mark will be assigned Armor division and their jobs are to be fighting against enemy armor or protecting ze vanguard !

    SPECIAL OPERATIONS DIVISION. [i made sure to zpell zis right.]

    Lt. Rip Van Vinkle [Zat is me!]
    w/ Viper, Al, and maybe WIllhelm
    Scouts and Casters assigned to this unit will support ze main infantry and spot for high value targets. Furzer more, eef necessary, go behind enemy lines to flush out targets and disrupt ze enemy. I dont like having soo many units to command so our numbers are few to support a greater whole !

    Annoy ze enemy as much ess possible.

    ..and heading our
    Is Captain Mana who will primarily act as field commander and herald zee main infantry to attack , defend, wifdraw, and prioritize targets or ze each of joo !"

    Your responsibilities: Should your superior issue you orders, joo follow ! or not follow ! but do so productively or I vill shoot you from verr verr far away !

    Our Responsibilities: Turn by turn, we shall agree on a general strategy and if you have the brainpower you can contribute, but ultimately we change to the situation as the batte progresses ! Call downs, and tracking supplies would be left to us as well so it's extra stressful !

    Looking at some of the old battles, a lot of Troopers fell prey to a few simple yet devastating blunders.
    -As Mana pointed out, hero syndrome .
    -Failure to use cover
    Holy crap this one is huge, a lot of the trooper losses I've noticed were good troops standing in open field holding some line, upright, and with some glaring elevation/visibility disadvantages.
    Getting nearly overrun in Dandelion, blasted in Solstice's onset.

    Vipera stands in front of a screen as she starts the briefing. a small trashcan filled with fire on the table as she throws some documents in it.

    "Now then. Stealth is important, and can be the line between life and death. This will probably sound obvious and repetetive, but some of you all simply don't know this.

    The basics of stealth is not being seen. If no enemy can see you, you are automatically considered stealthed, and don't appear on the opponent's map.

    If you are being watched, then you need to find some cover, or a wall, or if you're in an open field, you will need to go prone to reduce of your visible profile.

    Now then. Once you're stealthed, what do you do to keep stealth? You stay out of sight, or in cover, or prone. Any weapon other than your melee weapon or a silenced weapon will break stealth as the enemy pinpoints your position. So don't shoot unless you're sure you can handle the welcoming comitte. Another important note, silenced weapons leave no identifying bullet trail, so even if an enemy is watching you, they cannot tell that you've hit one of their allies. This is important for reducing your percieved threat.

    That should conclude the basic stealth class. Should anyone else gain the Serpent aspect I'll provide an advanced class on camoflage. And a similar class for Disguises gained from the Investigator Fox aspect."

    Vipera then finishes burning documents as per Iceval's will.

    Actually, my main kit is the Assault kit, I just picked up the Mobile Arty kit because it didn't make much sense to shoot at tanks in the open with a rifle.

    Also, concerning [A] strategy...

    Remember that you can divide your movement. You don't have to move THEN shoot, or shoot then move. It may be more advantageous to move, shoot, then move again.

    >Provided you have enough move to.

    Going prone is a life saver, as well as shooting from maximum range with your rifle. Don't forget that while we're called Assault Troops, CQC is better handled by the Vanguards, though clearing is something we do well.

    >Especially with our SMGs.

    Remember your whole armament, and if you have to choose, pick ending in cover over shooting someone.

    It'll probably be better leaving them up top. While they're up there, they're in plain sight so they'll have to be accountable for what they do. Down in the mines though... well... anything can happen down there and nobody would ever know. We all know that Clovis is mainly in this for our Ibonyte, rather than their well known charitable nature. Handing off the mine liberation to them is like leaving the house keys with that creepy uncle you never talk to.

    Ze kit loadout goes somesing like zis.

    Barricade: Use to create a 90 Percent defensive cover with a gun slot. It is 2 Durability with movement blocking. 3-4 barricades surrounding a unit will CAGE them.

    Jump Pad: Will place down and face "forward" on default. The jump pad can be assigned to orient towards any direction you vish however. On activation, ze jump pad will lauch any unit 5 squares up and out. Bigger targets will need a wider base of jump pads but it ess possible.
    Hidden Jump pads can also be used to launch enemies into walls. Or off cliffs.

    Sentry Gun: Are magnetically powered and radio-controlled gun mounts that fire 1 concussive damage shot every phase. Zey are 2 Health.

    Combat Stretcher: A body is placed in a reconstruction coffin that will recover the target 2 health for every turn they are in it and cannot leave until full healted. The combat stretcher is 2 health and if destroyed will take the body with it. Combat stretchers can also be moved once the body is collected.

    Engineers have basic medicinal knowledge on the field and can use an action to heal wounds or repair tanks using basic Ibonyte bonding processes. When their kit is not in use, they can use it to produce supplies and weapons on the spot. [Class Change on the field possible with combination actions ?]
    >> [E] Pvt. Lankest !cCsMsaA4k2 08/11/11(Thu)14:06 No.15902174

    An engineer's kit can be used to build one of four devices.

    The first is a simple barrier. It is literally just a wall. You stand behind it so you don't get shot unless you're stupid and stick your head out. That said I wouldn't want to test it against a tank myself, especially if Jathan built it.

    The second device is a spring. Springs can only launch things smaller than one hex and will launch them a total 5 hexes. That can be either 5 hexes up (resulting in death/injury upon landing), 5 hexes in a given direction, 2 hexes up and three hexes in a given direction, or any combination you can think of as long as the distance doesn't exceed 5 hexes. So depending on how it is used a spring can be a landmine or a means of rapidly deploying infantry to the front line. Again I wouldn't use any that Jathan builds.

    Third is the stretcher. It's a stretcher. You use it to carry dead bodies off the battle field so no one slips on them. Some people claim they have the mystic power to revive the dead and heal the injured. Personally I think those people are insane, JATHAN.

    The last and most important thing an Engineer can build is a turret. The currently come in two variates and you should probably declare which kind your carrying when you deploy or get new kits at a flag.

    The first turret is the auto-turret. Drop it, walk away, and watch it kill things. They have a Firing rate 7x1 per phase and deal 1 concussive damage. Don't know what the range is, but if you just keep dropping turrets you can rest assured everything will die or run away. PROVIDED YOU PUT THE SPROCKETS ON RIGHT JATHAN!
    >> [E] Pvt. Lankest !cCsMsaA4k2 08/11/11(Thu)14:06 No.15902181

    The second turret is the rocket turret. unlike the auto-turret the rocket turret needs to be aimed and fired manually. As such it is a good idea to only drop a full set of rocket turrets when you have allies to fire them. Otherwise just drop a half set and fire them yourself. Fortunately rockets have a built in guidance system and will hit whatever you shoot them at, provided the rocket isn't shot down by the enemy. Rockets move at 6 hexes a phase deal 2 damage and 1 explosive damage. When using rocket turrets it's a good idea not to fire them at anything more than 6 hexes away. This guarantees the rocket will hit this turn (killing the enemy sooner rather than later), and limits odds of an enemy shooting the rocket down. That said firing off a swarm of missiles at distant targets to distract the enemy is a good idea too. SO THINK BEFORE YOU SHOOT JATHAN!

    Their is also talk of Engineers getting mortars to play with, because being able to shoot rockets over walls wasn't good enough for some reason. Not that I'd turn down more turrets, I just hope Jathan can carry them.

    Oh and the last thing an Engineer can do with their kit IS BASH THING WITH THEM! Kit bashing deals 2 stunning damage. So we're basically knights without shields and less health.

It is said that that is where our Ibonyte stacks go. No one can tell what time it is in the mines, only that we depend on our overseers to tell to tell us to stop at one point. But in there it feels like an eternal night. Men keep disappearing from these ... things... "

    " If you wash to attack any of these places, know that the resistance is seeded there in one way or another to help. Set up a flag and we'll use that that as a signal to rally. Meanwhile we have a hidden cache of mining uniforms you can wear, and a dry riverbed we can enter the city through"

    We will attack the mine by day, that way civilian casualty will be minimal on the surface and we'll get as much reinforcement as possible for the fight, we can either try to take or disable the train to get a staging point for that northern base as a bonus too. We'll have to see if oderkonn can equip the BiTanks with a searchlight that way we could issue one big groupe and have to worry less about the light. That is if BiTank fits in the mine... otherwise Oderkonn mentioned a smaller recon version during solstice and even though we never used them they could be a welcome addition to our arsenal.

    You know, it's a shame Chief is busy, Engineers with spotlights would be ever so helpful. Requesting a Platoon, another squad of M, and if possible a V, but that's low priority. Looks like I'm gonna be busy popping off flares, so my friends can blow stuff sky-high."

    Will we be in the mines during night? If that isn't sunlight shining in, there is still a possible light source. All we need to do is set up an array and build a bonfire on it. That'll get me light and fire, both very useful here.

    Pvt. Winters looks up from where he's been tinkering with his BiTank's leg actuators, making sure everything's ready for the coming battle. He really looks the part of a new recruit; young, fresh faced, and bright eyed. He looks like the kind of kid that everyone would keep calling "Rookie", no matter how long he might serve with the unit.

    Standing, he wipes his hands off on a red scarf hanging from his neck before speaking.

    "Thanks! Just transferred in as soon as I finished armored combat training. I look forward to serving with... uh. They didn't tell me the name of this outfit."

    Nice that you are thinking ahead to array placement for me. I appreciate it. Aside from array deployment at my initial location, and subsequent placement by others will really have to fall along to where they move according to the flow of battle.

    Look alive gents-

    Despite her light anti infantry measures, the strider is equipped with superior line of sight, and pneumatic grapplers that can be used to pull units from danger or subdue infantry sized units with machine grapples !
    [Mind the pressure senstivity though......................]

    Furthermore, you can use your personal weapons from your seat but beware of called shots from the enemy !
