    When Soldiers of Fortune was introduced in ITS the first thing I got to hear about it was "that's OP for PanO, we will never run it in a tournament" from my Warcor and TO buddy.
    As a result I never really looked into building lists around it.

    However the same guy came around and ate his own words to organize a batshit insane tournament lineup with ITS10. So now I'll get to run PanO or one of it's Sectorials for a 2 day 5 games torunament.
    Innitially this was going to be a discussion behind closed doors with a few people from here and my local group, but it has been tremendous fun so I'd like to share spike your interest if possible.

    My question to you guys is - what's your experience with it? Would be very interested in compiling a list beyond the obvious candidates:
    • Joan + AVA3 Warcor +AVA4 Yuan Yuan (Joan + any irregular Merc, really)
    • Yojimbo/McMurder/Saito to add Smoke+CC & other non PanO utility
    • Krakots for Sectorials
    • Emily for a CoC troop
    • Uhahau for top knotch Hacking access
    • Raul Spector to get our hands on top shelf AD
    I've been dumping several hours into toying with this (but won't get to test anything before Tuesday) and the extra choices make one hell of a difference.
    Don't think small here, go for the most broken things you can imagine.
    Here is an example Direct Action list.

    Have fun racking your brains and share what you can come up with. Direct Action seems easier to build for, but I'd really like to see your take on lists for missions like Highly Classified as well.
    Last point of the list is a quick reminder that you have to pay 1 SWC to get access to a maximum of 75point of Mercs (several people have been unaware of that and ended up with illegal lists).

    I mean, if you are going to go for it and you get a combat oriented mission you can't go far wrong with:

    The problem I have with such lists as above is that there are a whole lot of squishy units and the list is focused on a few key attackers/specalists. I can see such a list being surprisingly fragile is not played well.

    yeah typically I find that once you start adding the SOF that give you access to things like Smoke+MSV that the list as a whole stops playing like a PanO list.

    Its an interesting idea, but personally to me its always been a good demonstration of how smoke and warbands would be far from "broken" in PanO
