Cool Droppings!

One of the reasons my late night Space Opus production has fallen off to nothing is that I've learned the paradrop features in the game Steel Panthers: MBT (not pictured, heh). The game usually has a very detailed order of battle available from almost every country with a military (and even some non-government forces), but I was distressed to find that my North/South Korean War would have to be played sans ROK paratroops. I'd already scored a Minor Victory with my NK airborne light infantry against a southern target; when I try to return the favor, I'm limited to vanilla ROK rifle companies stuffed into C-118 transports. C'mon, guys! I know the ROK has a Marine Corps! I might have to see if there's a game forum somewhere to see why none of SK's special forces made it into the game.

FWIW, my ROK grunts won a 2:1 Draw last night. Lots of landing casualties don't help when some of your troopers land in the middle of the enemy's armored response force!

Tonight: Indonesian paratroops and commandos try to recapture their Highlands from the filthy Australian invaders!
