Also I just realized, the CR3.1 in-sight doesn't say "active and moving," it says "active and moved." So I think the -1d6 modifier is very appropriate here, even if I did give you the extra 2" (which wouldn't do you any good in this situation). Anyway, my group will see yours as it's dropping prone in front of the chopper, concealed but not yet in cover (weird when you think about reality, but oh well).

So here we go, finally.

The US group in the chopper area (ASL GL Brumley (Rep5), Mayer, Gainey, and Schroeder) drops prone as it comes into LOS.

In-sight test: US gets -1d6 for active/moved. Syrians get -1d6 for enemy concealed. Both groups have leaders.

US roll: 4d6=2,5,3,3 for 3 successes.
Syrian roll: 3d6=4,1,2 for 2 successes.

US group reacts first and will fire. Ludanto, please let me know your order of firing and order of targets. I'll be praying for some bad rolls. :roll:

Brumley grenades Kabir (and anyone within 2.5" of him, of course).
Mayer fires 3x at Shahan.
Gainey fires 3x at Shafi.
Shroeder (randomly) fires 3x at Shahan.

(We didn't discuss it, but by the SA rules, Star Army (but not PDF) get +1 to Ranged Combat checks due to "targeting". I don't know if that fits with your idea of the action, but I thought I'd bring it up, because I usually forget about it.)

Good luck!

Thanks. According to the Armor section on page 6, targeting is provided by exo-armor in SA. That armor is only worn by SA Rangers. I wouldn't allow that kind of technology in a game set next year anyway, knowing the current military budgets.

The SA rules suggest that firing should occur in a swath, but they don't outright state it, so I'll process this as ordered. I don't think it will matter much anyway. But for future reference.

Brumley fires his GL at Kabir. Firing 1d6=3 + Rep5 = 8, hit. (Note that this would've missed if I had kept my PEF behind the wall. I suck.) 5” blast circle centers on Kabir, whole group is hit and takes damage.

Damage 3d6 (Shahan, Kabir, Shafi) =5,4,5 vs Impact 6. All are OOF.

Well, that was easy. And that ends Turn 6.

I'm having some crazy dice rolling now. You won't believe this.

Turn 7
Activation roll: US 4, Syrians 4. Reroll.
US 4, Syrians 4. Reroll.
US 5, Syrians 5. Reroll.
US 6, Syrians 3. Only Syrians activate this turn, but Brumley's group is now in cover.

Syrian PEF A stays in place. PEF C moves 10" to the corner of a building, from where it can see Brumley's group. It resolves as SAW gunner Rehman and rifleman Jama, both Rep4. Rehman drops prone (forgot to label in picture).

In-sight test: Syrians get -1d6 for active/moved, -1d6 for enemy concealed. US gets full dice.

US 5d6=5,6,2,1,6: 2 succ. Syrians 2d6=3,1: 2 succ. Reroll.
US 5d6=4,1,1,4,5: 2 succ. Syrians 2d6=2,2: 2 succ. Reroll
US 5d6=6,2,4,6,6: 1 succ. Syrians 2d6=2,2: 2 succ! Syrians fire.

Rehman fires SAW right to left: 4d6=6,2,2,2 + Rep4. Mayer is hit.

Jama fires AR right to left, starting with Brumley: 3d6=6,1,1 + Rep4. Brumley is hit. Jama has tight ammo and must reload next activation.

Mayer damage 1d6=4 vs Impact 2, "knocked down." Brumley damage 1d6=3 vs Impact 2, "knocked down."

Recover test: +1d6 for in cover, no leader die. 3d6=3,4,4 vs Rep 3, Mayer passes 1 and is OOF, Brumley passes 2 and carries on, can regain feet when next active (since he's already prone, there's really no effect).

US crisis test: +1d6 for in cover, + leader die. 4d6=3,5,1,6, all pass 2 and carry on.

This ends Turn 7. I'm getting forgetful this afternoon, so you might want to check my work.

Bah, I totally forgot the -1d6 for "temporary group leader taking the test." I never paid attention to that one before, but it actually makes sense. So the US should've won the in-sight.

Let's back it up, and tell me how Brumley's group will target my two guys.

Luck is luck. Don't worry about it.

I was wondering why nobody fired back, but then realized that the SAW outgunned the remaining rookies, who will have Ducked Back.

Nice job!

I think that's it. Next activation!

Not that it matters now, but for future reference, they didn't return fire because they had a man down. The best reaction they can have in that case is carry on. They couldn't active fire because they didn't activate in this turn.

In fact, I probably should've let my group active fire after the reactive fire.

Ok, so we're backing up a bit. It's still Turn 7. Rehman and Jama come into LOS, Rehman goes prone with the SAW, and Brumley's group wins the in-sight. How will they target my guys?

OK then. It looks like Brumley and Shroeder might have LOS and will be firing in reaction.

Brumley at Rehman (and thus also Jama).
Schroeder 3x at Jama.

(Also, it never occurred to me that Carry On is "worse" than Return Fire. I guess that shows the benefit of not playing solo all of the time.)
