Got a Jaguar by the Tail written byJeff Crisp
OVERVIEW: Towards the end of the SLDF’s offensive against the Smoke Jaguars, elite clan warriors were often given headhunter missions to destroy C3 units and command mechs. The following exercise represents one of many such engagements.
SLDF MISSION: The SLDF’s force is a recon unit assigned to hunt down a lone Blackhawk that has been sighted in the area. To win the scenario, the Blackhawk must be destroyed before it leaves the final game map edge.
SMOKE JAGUAR MISSION: The Smoke Jaguar has been ordered to destroy a C3 communication and observation post. The mech must cross all three maps and make it off of the short edge of the final map without being destroyed to achieve the objective. Enemy units are to be evaded or destroyed.
MAP COMPOSITION / UNIT PLACEMENT: Three non-water maps of the Smoke Jaguar player’s choice are to be set up lengthwise. (See below)
