Hummers performed very very badly.... clear LOS and no reaction.... :shockaroona: if one cannot trust Crack Marines anymore then the END is near my friend !!
That's not bad I guess. As I think all games have been played now and others mentioned Humvees etc, I'll post freely:
Just finished my game with @MeatEtr !!
It looks like I aslo totally misunderstood the parameters /objective as well !! I reread the briefing and indeed the task was to preserve the Marines forces (primary objective right ?) and inflict as much losses as possible while keeping the Syrians away from the secondary objective. I focused too much on that secondary objective (only 25 points !) and greatly underestimated the size of the Syrian forces. I thought my "ambush" plan was flexible enough to deal with different ennemy approaches but for whatever reason the Humvees did not fire any single round when Syrian armor popped up. Total disaster for the Marines !! Well played @MeatEtr !!
Open thoughts with you guys : what was actually the best plan for the Marines ? To hide somewhere in a corner and wait for the Syrians to come if they ever find you ? The Marines buy time but is it funny to play ? To dismount the Humvees and add more firepower to the foot soldiers ? However how can a platoon of lightly armed US Marines sustain a fight against twice more Syrians and 5 x BMP-2 ??? I have no clue....
