August 25th, 2552 – Military Cross Training – Tactics
Pilot/Mechanic/Jump-Gate Navigator/Grunt in training Kat “S-Kat” James Reporting
Today’s lesson in Tactics actually started bringing things together in a way that made sense. Now that I had at least an inkling of how troops moved and the people manning them— I had a better line on what was going on.
It was different looking at troop movements and dealing with enemy positioning, most of my experience was supply line and transport. It was interesting when I realized that the exercise had a mini battleground with game pieces as troops and equipment.
Tower looked at it and showed us where to maneuver our enemies so that we’d have the advantages. Our smuggler was looking at how to get pieces behind the lines while not being noticed and I was figuring out how to get him back out once he was done.
It was all very theoretical until the guy with the pointer showed us how the battle would have gone down with each of our plans.
The military team, of course, did best, the civilians didn’t do badly— the criminal element didn’t win as much as we played a different game, made things difficult for the enemy, didn’t lose anyone and our battle had no solid conclusions.
What can I say, I’m a getaway pilot
