    Anyone else think it's weird we have yet to see Cobra get a single shot off though? Worried that it means IVF is very weak and not worth all the tanks we've already gathered, but we'll see.

    The IFV's engaging Draco managed to fire - they just couldn't punch through his armour.

    To be fair the missiles might have hurt hm... if he didn't swat them away like flies!

    The androids are basically up to 100 free personnel, the costs are minimal. We chose androids over killer bears, lets make the most of them!

    Oh yeah, if there is something better than having tanks thrown at tanks I don't wanna know what it is.

    Set course for contact B, set the radar for sector scan, set the extractors for alloy gathering, decompress the heavy infantry kit and sample trays, launch 2 probes at contacts D and F and the other 4 to find enemy bases and assign Kincade and all personel to android manufacturing.

    That military base will be useful, no matter what we do with it. We also need more alloys and better equipment for the troops in our supply of IFVs, and most importantly, we need more crewmen for the KaT.

    We also need to find those enemy bases so we can get them out of operation. That way, we can buy a breather to gather our forces in order again.

    The 40 fuel the discs need is kind of prohibitive. Besides if I'm understanding things right they need 1 turn of refueling before sailing out.

  • Jeep-EepJeep-Eep Registered User regular
    Point. Building those things was a mistake from the start.

    Can we recycle units for alloys?

  • TipharethTiphareth Registered User regular
    edited March 2012
    Now, now. Let us not get ahead of ourselves. We should use them some more, but we need to secure a refinery or some other source of fuel.
    That said, when we get some other aircraft we should replace them.

    Tiphareth on
  • Jeep-EepJeep-Eep Registered User regular
    We can always build them again. Their alloys would be more useful as Androids right now.

  • Dread_sDread_s Registered User
    We can trash the saucers, but then i think we need some of those new assassins to sow some mayhem. The quicker we can end this the better.

  • TipharethTiphareth Registered User regular
    I still think we should not be as short-sighted on this issue as we are. The discs have a purpose, thrashing them without replacing them just dimnishes us. Focus on looking further ahead, currently we can handle what is being thrown at us. So let's take it easy and shore up our production capacity. We got resources incoming, we'll be alright.

  • rockrngerrockrnger Registered User regular
    Ya, the disks are useful. Terror and extra "human resources." the only reason we are short on fuel is the zettabay.

    We should send them out ASAP and hopefully the military base is an airfield.

    Ender, how are airstrikes handled? Can we strafe the incoming units?

    Oh also, rereading I was terribly wrong about the discs needing a turn of refueling before they can re-engage.

    Ender, how are airstrikes handled? Can we strafe the incoming units?

    Helicopters and other VTOL aircraft will engage in combat just like any other unit (but with much more manoeuvrability & stopping power than anything on the ground).

    Fixed-wing aircraft can be assigned as close air support for a unit. They'll have to deal with any opposing aircraft or surface-to-air capabilities of the enemy first, and then any planes with air-to-mud munitions will be able to drop them on land forces.

    Terrorism was a crucial factor. The exit poll asked, “Which one of these four issues is the most important facing the country?” Sixty-five percent of voters picked the economy or foreign policy, and these voters went for Clinton. Thirteen percent picked immigration, and those voters went for Trump. The backbreaker was the fourth issue, terrorism. Eighteen percent of voters picked that issue, and they broke for Trump, 57 percent to 39 percent. That gap, fatally, cost Clinton slightly more than 3 percentage points of the total electorate.
  • TipharethTiphareth Registered User regular
    Which means we need fixed-wings STAT. Also, is it only me wanting to go back to sirius and stop making shitty IFVs?

  • Jeep-EepJeep-Eep Registered User regular
    No, because we can make not-so-shitty infantry kit for the guys that ride about in them.

    We need something to keep enemy infantry off our tanks.

  • rockrngerrockrnger Registered User regular
    All of our engagements so far have been in open terrain where tanks are most useful. Once we get in something heavy (urban, maybe forest, does Korea have mountains?) tanks start turning into targets for infantry anti tank weapons.

    The whole reason I pick IFV was that they never really go obsolete because we can always upgrade the infantry inside them.

  • WubWub Registered User
    The IFVs are great and all, but right now we have far more than we can even fill. I'd be down with switching production to tanks or whatever else we can decompress by the time we get back to it. Rock makes a good point though.

    steam_sig.png
  • zekebeauzekebeau Registered User regular
    I agree with switching Sirius to tanks, but I don't think it is our #1 objective yet. Crushing Cobra is looking not too hard (got them to 40/100 terror already, they will break soon) once we take down a few more targets they'll be gone and we'll have leisure time to change production and fill up our IFVs with infantry robots (they are cheap and cost no fuel, alloys will not be an issue with them).

    AWARE Update:

    Captain, we have attempted to reach Sirius Factory Compound, but could not reach the asset within your scheduled timeframe. [Tiphareth ordered a move to Sirius Factory Compound, but such a move would cost 10 Ingress Points. Only 8 were available. No move made.]

    Templates for Brutal-Class SAM launchers and bomblet munitions for the Slayer cannon have been decompressed and installed onto my primary partition. Both assets are now available for manufacturing.

    7 crew have been assigned to Ryker Kincaid. She has been provided the templates for android crew members. Her clearance to the Zettabay has been revoked.

    Joseph Cain & his team have returned to the KaT. He is ready for reassignment.

    Richter Gerhard & his team have returned to the KaT. He is ready for reassignment.

    Cobra Faction - South Korean Association

    (Next Attack in 2 Turns)

    Cobra Faction is openly engaged in hostilities against us. They can be expected to continue deploying units at a rate of 1d6 every 6 Turns. The lethality of units and rate of deployment is expected to increase as hostilities continue.

    Pacification of Cobra Faction is a high priority objective.

    Cobra's Secretary of Foreign Affairs has been assassinated. They will be replaced in 5 turns. Until they are replaced, Cobra Faction may not request assistance from any allied factions. 12 Terror were inflicted as a result of this assassination.

    - Do you wish to deploy probes to attempt to locate Cobra Faction's forward bases? Each probe deployed will have a 50% chance of locating a base. Analysis suggests that Cobra Faction currently has 4 forward bases in operation; if these are eliminated, Cobra Faction will be rendered temporarily harmless.

    - Cobra Faction has accumulated 59 Terror. If 100 Terror points are inflicted upon Cobra Faction, they will disintegrate. Terror may be inflicted upon a faction by launching terror raids, assassinating members of their government, destroying their bases, and a few other activities.

    The Ender on
    Terrorism was a crucial factor. The exit poll asked, “Which one of these four issues is the most important facing the country?” Sixty-five percent of voters picked the economy or foreign policy, and these voters went for Clinton. Thirteen percent picked immigration, and those voters went for Trump. The backbreaker was the fourth issue, terrorism. Eighteen percent of voters picked that issue, and they broke for Trump, 57 percent to 39 percent. That gap, fatally, cost Clinton slightly more than 3 percentage points of the total electorate.

    Hopefully this is worth the words

    Tales of the Terrorized
    The ride in the transport gave Li "Silence" Su-Dae too much time to think. Too much time to trace back over what had happened.
    It had started a week ago with the incident report on his desk:

    :::::::::::::::::TOP SECRET:::::::::::::::
    INCIDENT SUMMARY REPORT: Saucer Abduction
    1 Police cruiser, destroyed, blast marks consistent with high grade military explosives.
    3 Officers lost
    4 Missing Persons Reported

    Commentary:
    The investigation is ongoing. Initial reports have proved confusing. What few witnesses can be found claim to have seen a flying metal object in the area. Shortly after the cruiser was destroyed we began to receive reports of missing people in the area. The locals are calling it an alien abduction. Whatever it is, we can be sure it is heavily armed, and hostile.
    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    He was reading the last words of the report when he got the first phone call. Radar control confirmed that there had been four blips on radar the previous night. The second call that came chilled his blood. It was from forward reporting and they only had time to spout off a few words. "There is something large operating inside our borders, and it is extremely hostile. Report immediately for briefing."

    He had stepped out of his office and into a hive of activity. The entire building had suddenly gone into crisis mode, but what he really remembered, was when the videos started coming in. Mechanical titans of unbelievable size. Dangerous looking machines of war blazing a path through the center of the country-

    -A sudden shudder in the transport brought his attention back to the present. He looked back to the troops he was commanding as part of the first expeditionary force, and he knew that none of them were going to come back alive. The giant beasts had been allowed to roam unchecked for too long, and they were the first response. He looked out front just in time to see the horrible machines loom into sight. The first blast was deafening. He watched as transport Alpha-1 in front of him was engulfed in flames by the hostile missile. The reaction time of his driver was good, but not that good. His transport slammed into Alpha-1 at top speed. The next explosion was beyond deafening, it was silent. When the transport came to a rest his last sight was of the steel mountains above him, blotting out the sun...

    Let's snatch up three of the cheaper templates now to unlock more tech and go capture another base. More androids to turn in to infantry once the heavy template is complete, more meat-personnel to pulp in to officers, and more terror for Cobra.

    Wub, you can only decompress 2 templates per turn.

    @Wub, almost perfectly agree with you, but I think now is a good time to switch up the Sirius production. We've got more than enough IVF, and after seeing our own Titan flick 10 infantry away like so many gnats, I don't see much use in more. We need bigger guns and more missiles. I want the sky to burn at our approach.

    @Ender: we can decompress as many as we can afford, or do we have a maximum of two? Because if we can decompress 3, please change to (1,4a,5) to improve our spy squad.

    Dread, you are awesome.

    Maximum of two. One via the KaT, one via the BioCore Den.

    I like androids but lets not waste the Zettabay on them, we aren't a clone-tank. We have some ASSET TOKENS lets go see what we can buy from the other KAT.

    Next turn we can possibly build BEAST TANKS. And with zettabay... two beast tanks!

    Let's go sirius before our tank bay is full of IFVs, we are a tank tank, not an infantry tank. It is a shame I didn't see how much ingress points we had going last turn or I could have burnt some fuel on it.

    So far so good. I was a little white knuckle when those infantry disembarked but all assets preformed well.

    The factory levels up in seven turns so let's wait and see what happens. That will give us an infantry compliment for 3 assault teams and hopefully it we can switch it remotely or it will start making something different.

    At 15 IFV we Will need 150 infantry to fill them. Figure 100 light and 50 heavy we will need to make 4 turns(5x5) to get the light plus whatever heavy costs.

    After the military base and our assault teams get back we should go on the offensive and try to knock the south Koreans out of this fight by heading for the nearest forward base.

    We need infantry kit, crew and alloys in that order. We could also use any production capacity that we can turn to our own use. To these ends, decompress the shock trooper kit and sample trays, send out Cain to gather a cult, set the radar for sector scan and tool up for flat out Android manufacturing.

    Kincaid is only rank one, he can only command 10 units.

    How did I miss that?

  • TipharethTiphareth Registered User regular
    I doubt progress is lost when switching production queues. Some more main battle tanks to clear harder threats, then we'll fill our iFVs with anti-infantry.

    I was more worried that we would waste two turns going there and coming back just to be able to change when it levels up in three turns.

    What is everyone thinking about changing it to? I was thinking either infantry(heavy or light) or just straight androids so we don't have to worry about crew anymore.

    Morbid class tanks or something bigger if we get a chance to research it. Then all kincaid needs to worry about is SAMs and crew.

    I'm thinking it might be possible and a better option to find an entirely new facility and commandeer it for the purpose.

    We do not have an unlimited amount of parking spots in our KITKAT, we just don't. We need to produce something with our factory that isn't prime Orion rassling material.

    We got 10 IFVs, that is pure troop transports for ONE HUNDRED, yes 100 men. We need to stop building that shit.
