P.S.: Drew, yes I've read it. Very cool, but what's the connection here?
Thanks for being there to bounce ideas off of! The terrain bonus version is a neat take on it, one I didn't think to try.

I get the feeling Drew's suggesting that these kinds of weapons systems, created for a tactical doctrine so narrow it qualifies for "why?" and with little better reason than "why not?", would be the kind of thing that would be invented by a deranged, damaged autofac 'trapped in a cage' with two other autofacs that have already tried to kill it once.

This actually does sound like an interesting scenario . . . !

That being weaponry of a 2nd, or lower, tier than the usual nuclear weapons. See Josh's non-nuclear weapons rules in the article.

For anti-infantry howitzer ammo, I like air dispersable mines: 3x AP attacks against overrunning units, 1 infantry defense, no movement. Great for terrain interdiction!
