    Pt2...
    Too, looking over the table on p220 I thought about how we always wear hearing protection when training/practicing with grenades not just for OH&S purposes but because it works in reducing the impact on troops - and how Blast/Bang effects should be affected by Soundproof and Sealed armour.
    Anyhow, they're just some things that sprung to mind. I've always enjoyed games that reflected the world but didn't get bogged down in mechanics (Aftermath is a great example of an epic failure there). I'm sure you've got contacts that can cover this sort of thing for you, but if you ever want another opinion on the interplay between mechanics and the world as we know it, I'd be happy to help out.
    Regards,
    Geoff Kelly

    Don, I hope you're well and the summer's being gentle to you guys over there.
    You and the five (or are you part of the five) probably get endless offers of help or such when it comes to rules reviews. I've just read the Where Is T5 Going thread and saw plenty of talk about the combat system, which was interesting to read. I've had some decades in the police and army, and it was interesting seeing people write about autofire and snapfire and movement and such, then relate it to my experiences and how we train guys, what's possible and not. I was also a hand-to-hand instructor at work for a couple of years (we called it Defensive Tactics - sounds better in court), so have been trying out options for playing around with that sort of action as per p216.
    ...see pt2
