    To the point - Dahshat blends Mercs, Yu Jing, and Haqqislam in some fairly interesting ways. The mixed core Fireteams (which, to be honest, are not my favorite in terms of game design direction) are extremely usable, largely aided by the inclusion of Regular Bounty Hunters as Wildcard options. You can take 4 of them. For example, for killy missions:

    The 12-point SMG/Splooge Cannon Bounty Hunter is a phenomenal link filler. Better BS than a Ghulam. Arguably better loadout, and the possibility of acquiring some pretty severe hardware, including a Multisnipe, ODD or mimetism.

    The real utility of these guys comes into play when you consider 5/3/? fireteams. Traditionally you were looking at a Core. Maybe a Haris. Usually you had to pick a 'theme' (HI / MI / LI) and go with it. These guys change the paradigm. Now you can boost your Rui Shi with extra maneuver orders (Zuyong TA) and a seriously dangerous ARO (Bounty Hunter). You can also use them to pad Ghulam links, discouraging TAGs from approaching.

    Long story short, Dahshat has access to a seriously terrifying unit that is objectively inexpensive (no more expensive than a line trooper) but can threat LI all the way up to TAGs. Let's see what they can do.

    I agree on all of your pooints. So far I've also liked them for being able to easily bring a 5-man link back to five if they have casualties. I'v done it twice now were I pulled a Haris or Duo with up, to then reform the link with the ABH. They add a huge amount of flexibility!

    I love booty. It's just so much fun even if you get crap. It's usually something like a panzerfaust for a Yuan Yuan lol. But the last time my 3 ABH got 2x multi-rifles, and 1 Adhesive Launcher. Not bad!

    Now something to remember, Baggage! I noticed a lot of guys taking Kameels or Traktor Muls anyway. Remember you can fill back up on AK.

    I'm really liking Duo with them. Again it makes it very flexible.

    OOF! The duos! I never thought of that, it'd be interesting to have almost everything mutually supported/backed up. And the order efficiency is hilarious.

    I'll have to try this out!

    I love it so far. Look at all of the order efficiency here. 1 Core that can split into a haris should the other go down. 1 Haris that could split into a duo by leaving the Zuyong behind and 2 Duo. All of them with flexibility due to the ABH wildcard.
