That Thunderbolt of Thunderbolts actually feels quite acceptable, but definitely a team player.

Finally from this Rec Guide 15 we had 3 Thuds designs, one I think we already had the 7M, Too bad, that Phoenix Hawk IIC with an ax didn't touch us

Thanks, that helps a lot.
It always confuses me that Strike attacks don't figure range in the mix, while other aspects of aero action do. I understand that 2x4 alt is 8 squares = 1 "aero hex", but it still is confusing...

1. The only two truly restricted conditions are Extinct and Does not yet exist (and even then this is just baseline. Do what you want at home). It's not hard to shuffle bodies around, but most factions do not do this in sufficient quantities to register. It's not that the CCAF can't use C* organization. Remember that availability means "Multiple examples in multiple formations" - no availability doesn't necessarily mean none.  If you want your forces to appear representative, it would be strange to see a C* Level I in a non-C* force and I would guess most people would demand some kind of explanation. But that's room to tell a story.

2. There was a desire to give factions like the Marians access to interesting units. There are no canon references to those platoon types coming in hegemony-specific organization so they go in as-is. it's either that or give them nothing. *You* can infer they take the step to use their own organization - and we encourage people to do so. We can't do that.

3. It is indeed difficult to field a unit for a faction before that faction or the equipment exists

4. Sort of goes back to #1. That's when those factions started fielding them in numbers. That's not to say some platoon sergeant didn't hand out some heavier armor or weapons before the date on the tin (assuming the equipment existed)

5. That's the general idea. If that exact kit or statistically equivalent replacements are available, they can be spread more widely

6. Depends. The Heavy Riot Infantry from Handbook: House Kurita uses a specific shotgun with a stun stick-type component (even though it only affects AToW-level play). We could find no evidence that gun is produced or exported anywhere else so it was restricted to DC and FRR units

7. Highly likely, but not necessarily a binding condition

At this point Alaric must owe the SharkFoxes so much that they are already into “the bank has a problem” territory. They need him to last a long time to pay them back.

The era's already named IlClan era. Even if that happens, we know how it is gonna play out in practice.

Yeah! Alaric gets wiped out and then the real ilClan arrives!  :D :D :D

That’s picture represents Daoshen sneaking up on Alaric’s depleted forces, right? Right?

Plot Rorschach
