Tactical Question of the Month
| It will take at least two
days for reinforcements from the Imperial Navy to arrive. With that in mind,
we have our work cut out for us in taking back Uzbec from the Rebels. Your
next task captain, is to retake the base's barracks which the Rebels are
using to hold Imperial Army prisoners. In addition to freeing our comrades,
we will be gaining our most valuable asset on this planet, our FireHawke
Repulsortanks. The barracks are protected by strips of anti-repulsorlift
mine fields (which are designated as the blue strips on your tactical map).
These mines are powerful enough to destroy your repulsorlift vehicles. But
they do have a weakness, they cannot be set off by non-repulsorlift craft.
In addition there are anti-vehicle barricades (indicated by the grey crosses)
which prevent the movement of both repulsorlift and non-repulsorlift vehicles
(but not infantry). Your company includes 2 Stormtrooper Augmented Squads
(total of 18 troops), 2 AT-PTs, and 2 Light Imperial-class Repulsortanks.
You will be facing a Rebel force of 4 squads of Rebel Troopers (total of
32 troops), 1 Hover Tank T1B, and 1 Heavy Attack Tank T3B.
Note that there are no reinforcements available.
All but four of your Stormtroopers are equipped with only the BlasTech
E-11 Blaster Rifle. The four remaining Stormtroopers (two per squad) are
equipped with a BlasTech T-21 Light Repeating Blaster. Included in Aurek
and Besh Squads are a total of 4 Stormtrooper Engineers capable of operating
mobile equipment. All of the Rebel Troopers are equipped with a BlasTech
DH-17 Blaster Pistol and 1 Anti-Personnel Grenade. Two of the Rebel squads
are equipped with a Golan Arms FC-1 Flechette Launcher (Range 250 metres.
Max Blast Radius = 5 metres); of which one has anti-personnel canisters
and the other has anti-vehicle canisters.
Each square represents 50 Metres of distance.
