    I'm a player that has pretty much zero interesting/incentive to use Domaru or Tanko, and Tac Awareness would definitely encourage me to give them another try. I think a lot of their problems are still deeper than that, but this would be a good addition for them.

    I really do like that idea, getting TacWare off the big guns and onto the supporting troops (IMO, the best Zuyong is the Combi+Tinbot Haris).

    But what does this idea do to extreme skew lists like my 7 Samurai?

    Oyama and two Tanko go up 4pts each, putting the entire list at 312, so I'd probably have to drop the Doc entirely.

    But that also bumps the entire list up 12 orders.

    I dunno, would probably require a lot more work to unsnarl with the loss of a specialist...


    Also, if this change was applied to Shikami, that would make them really scary in good/dense terrain.

    Technically speaking I wouldn't personally put TacAware on Tanko because they aren't the high-tech mobility suits that Yu Jing produces and that Pan-O corporations are trying to ape :) Also, the Flammenspeer and Blitzens would disqualify Tanko due to my other criterias of not giving it to long range guns, though TacAware could be used to make, for example, the Wu Ming Panzerfaust have a meaning I suppose.
    so you can stick a Chaiyi in there for a 9 Regular Pool

    I think I liked the idea better with the Tanko having TacWare, but that's me.

    Mostly I'm just inventing fluff reasons to incentivize HI factions to use their HI while not providing the same incentives for non-HI factions, and there is some thing to be said about Tanko being a downgrade over the old Haramaki suits that JSA can no longer produce.

    Fair point!

    It's just that to me TacWare is training/skill, not tech.
