I mean now that we've seen the tunguska and the FAV, the special forces units are the only two things left we have'nt seen.

They want to show us, but those sneaky guys keep stealing the photographs and killing the photographers. :)

I'll also do a quick summary of the special rules the SAS get - they can be really nasty on the battlefield!

As for the next Chinese release, you'll have to wait until wave 4 and the EQ2050 air defence system - which will be coming just in time to shoot down the Super Cobras and Future Lynxs!

I wish manufacturers would stop calling stuff "future". It's going to sound mighty stupid in forty years when it's completely obsolete and been sold off to third world countries. Like all the crap they labeled "2000" during the 1980s. Ooh! The Betamax 2000! It's the future! :roll:

It's like people getting sexy tattoos and then looking like idiots when they're sixty and fat and that little devil/rose/butterfly/whatever is all stretched and faded out beyond recognition.

Or sci-fi movies that use some arbitrary not-nearly-far-enough-into-the-future date as their setting and then get hopelessly caught up with. It's 2007 and we still don't have flying cars! I want flying cars!

Not that this has anything to do with anything, of course. Just sayin'...

Just a thought, if the SAS/Force Recon models turn out to have better sculpts and paints would anyone consider using them as normal infantry models?

From Wikipedia:

United States Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance (Force Recon) units are special-purposes units roughly analogous to the Navy SEALs, Air Force Air Commandos, or U.S. Army Special Forces and are widely recognized as the "special operations forces" of the United States Marine Corps. Marine Force Recon personnel, or "operators", perform highly specialized, small scale, high-risk operations, such as:

* Amphibious and deep ground surveillance.
* Assisting in specialized technical missions such as Nuclear, Biological, Chemical, Radio, sensors and beacons, etc.
* Assisting in ordnance delivery (i.e., designating targets for close air support, artillery and naval gunfire).
* Conducting direct action raids, such as gas and oil platform (GOPLATS) raids and the capture of specific personnel or sensitive materials.
* Hostage/prisoner of war rescue.
* Unconventional warfare
* Foreign Internal Defense
* Counter-Terrorism

Force Reconnaissance units have been recently integrated into the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), and are now part of Marine Special Operation Battalions East and West. However, United States Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC) won't be fully integrated into SOCOM until 2010.

So what happens if the game's timeline advances at the same rate or faster than normal time? :wink:

Are SAS and other special forces going to ignore the usual unit structure rules? One of the problems I had with my local game group getting them into SST was the way in which supposedly elite units like Pathfinders would fall apart if their sergeant/corporal got sneezed on by the enemy and fell over...
