Tactical Question of the Month
Uzbec-Jaws of Denial
| Imperial reinforcements are
expected to arrive within the hour, however the Rebels will escape if we
wait for those reinforcements. So far two-thirds of the Rebel Gallofree
Yards Medium Transports which participated in the invasion have left the
forest moon of Uzbec, taking with them stolen munitions, fuel, support equipment,
and combat vehicles. The remaining four transports contain the spaceport's
squadron of StarWing Assault Gunboats and their spare parts, and therefore
they must not be allowed to leave. Your orders captain, you are to capture
the Rebel transports and the pair of Y-Wings. Your forces include 3 S-1
FireHawke Repulsortanks, 1 Compact Assault Vehicle, and 3 squads of Imperial
Army Troopers (24 troopers in all). The Rebels are fielding 3 Rebel Armoured
Freerunners and 3 squads of Rebel Troopers (24 troops in all). Supplementing
the Rebels' forces are a pair of captured GPT-117 Troop Transports (from
the spaceport's complement).
Note that there are no reinforcements available.
Imperial Army Troopers are each equipped with their standard armour, E-11
Blaster Rifle, and 2 Anti-Personnel Grenades. 2 of the Army Troopers are
carrying SoroSuub Equalizer Shoulder-Launched Ion Cannons [Scale Speeder.
Ammo: 4. Range 300 metres. Damage: ionization damage 3D, the troopers
are carrying 1 reload (4 shots)] and 2 Army Troopers are carrying BlasTech
T-21 Light Repeating Blasters instead of E-11s. Rebel Troopers in Squads
2 and 3 are equipped with a BlasTech DH-17 Blaster Pistol and 1 Anti-Personnel
Grenade and 1 Anti-Vehicle Grenade (if grenade hits vehicle it sticks
to it; then detonates with 1D Speeder scale Damage), while Rebel Troopers
in Squad 1 replaced the DH-17 with an E-11. One of the Rebel squads is
equipped with a Golan Arms FC-1 Flechette Launcher (Range 250 metres.
Max Blast Radius = 5 metres) with anti-vehicle canisters [Scale: Speeder.
Damage: 3D]. Meanwhile, the Y-Wings and transports are fully armed (but
currently cannot harm your forces) and are presently powering up their
systems. Also note that the swamp area is like quick sand.
Each square represents 100 Metres of distance.
