    Well for MO the whole problem is to get chassuer out of camo (and live), its not "how to kill him when he is out of cover".

    You also seem to (magicly) bypass a fact you will ALWAYS eat a LFT in MO while going in b2b with chasseur (unless ariadna player somehow deployed smoke for you).

    Well, I had mine destroyed by Metros and mines so, yes, I know, but again, yes, I have fought Chasseurs in CC. Seraph is my preferred one for them but knights are good at this too. I prefer Montesa or Santiago because of Intuitive attack but Magisters are good at this too in FT thanks to +3 WIP at 5 members and dodge on 17.

    EDIT : here is the anecdote : I played a game against the winner of the last Interplanetario in February in order to train ourselves for the French satellite tournament. He was playing MRRF and I was playing MO on The Grid. I sent my Seraph to mess with the Chasseurs and kill as much as I could in the first turn. One died by Nanopulser and the last one received a EXP sword in the face. Then I retreated to have my Seraph in good shape for the second turn. Unfortunately, it will be put unconscious by the HMG of a FT of Metros.

    Ok, How about Natural Born Warrior, let's say for the Black Friars or the Orc's?

    NBW is sort of the opposite of what'd you expect PanO units to have. PanO achieves supremacy through training and tech. That kind of intuitive melee-oriented skill just isn't for us.

    I totally agree with this. Maybe Rao could have it, though? In the fluff, he's supposed to be some sort of child prodigy in terms of Jungle fighting.

    You bet. That's exactly it.

    Yes indeed.

    I'd be happy to see ORCs get them, either on a unique profile or on the character. Drop Bears on a PH14 mini, who can't miss with their Drop Bear throws when they're in a 5-man link, would be a good start to keeping PanO toys in PanO hands.

    I'm hoping that we get our first S5 unit for Pano. Maybe a really light riot tag, or something like that.

    How about Akalis with drop bear. Oh wait, only nomads get cool units.

    LoL at Orc's with Drop Bears. Suddenly that basic HI would see a lot of play.

    TBH chest mines (in more sophisticated version) or actually Electric Pulse seems more "PanO" thab NBW.

    Sadly, I'm not certain anyone's clamoring for Auxbots with chest mines.

    Maybe a combat rem at S5

    But we already have S6 "mini" TAGs! Uhlans and Tikbalang, some of the coolest and good looking tags out there.

    But I agree with not having S5 HI. I feel like that's a concept good for other factions. Our thing is sophisticated S2 HI troops.

    A S5 TAG... I don't think we need that, but it could be a really interesting and exclusive concept for PanO. The final product would look much like the Su Juan from Yu Jing maybe, but from a TAG approach(we are specialists in that) instead of HI (they are specialists in that).

    But... Another TAG... I'd prefer to see some tweaking on the ones we already have.

    I'd still like to see an SHI, partially because they make for a great centerpiece unit. Something that would make that S5 justified. My dream is the Hulkbuster, SHI primed for CQB, with Remote Presence and Autorepair.

    Yeah, combat REMs are Aleph's thing now. Like the high-tech but cheap warbands with smoke.
