    Tbh I knew that back then Guided was very popular. I think a lot was said in that retrospective thread.
    I'm not sure if it's very useful today though.

    Tell that to my opponents. Guided done right is often one of the most efficient ways of dealing with hard tough opponents and to hit mod opponents. People that dont use guided are severly limiting their arsenal

    Guided munitions are massively underrated in this forum and can be seriously effective. I don't bring my T-Drone or Smart RL Chaksa often, but they do work when I do. Plus they're damn cheap.

    My main leeriness on them is that Sat-lock is an integral part of using them, and if you sat-lock a mine you've wasted it. When CB gets their head straight about being able to use guided ammo on deployable equipment (and scenery structures) it'll be better.

    A T-Drone with Assisted Fire and an FO to target gets very nasty, very fast. Even without an FO to Target, AP+DA+Shock ignoring cover is a hateful thing to do to an opponent.

    I've used Sat-Lock once or twice but I'm a big proponant of the E-Drone who gets added more into lists than other EVOs which makes Sat-Lock a bit better. Tbh though I'm pretty happy with just Surprise Shot FO to get them to go off. It's a handy tool but I won't structure my list around the model, you know?

    Theoretically, a Pathfinder-like REM would have fairly good chances of Forward Observing an enemy using Triangulated Fire. It does require your enemy to stick their heads out and for the REM to survive the ARO long enough so you can spend an Entire Order on doing it.

    Skirmisher FOs.

    Run the numbers on surprise and non surprise FO as an attack. Youll be surprised how reliable and dominant that can be in the f2f, and thats before you get into the markers abillity to move-move out of lof

    Hunzakuts. WIP14 FO surprise attack with Camo. Have fun!

    But yes, I have used GML to great effect even against tags (with their ECM). They are a very useful item in the arsenal even without SAT-Lock.

    I personally think ECM should work against incoming missile/guided missile/hacking. All launchers and hacking programs basically. Its really tough imagining that a huge tag with integrated firewalls and electronic counter measures is just as easy to hack as a standard HI. Or at least give TAG's built in Firewall. Either way, ECM could do more. ECM really is not entirely that great. remove the +6? Okay...still hitting on 12...advanced I am hitting on 9's? I will still take those odds since your also not declaring any other ARO's and not shooting back.
