My defensive setup was a perimeter guard of HVYs around approaches the CP with a forward screening HWZ and 2 MSLs one each north and south of the CP towards the edges of the map. In hindsight this wasnít a good strategy at all.

The attacker allowance of 20 armor units is incredibly generous. I chose 16 HVYs & 4MSLs. Movement in stacks as a pincers from the north and south towards the CP plateau.

The result was a complete bloodbath. All PE units destroyed at the price of one Combine HVY. Iíll definitely revisit this with a different balance of forces.
If you're going to play and need fog of war you might try using the dummy counters and random place the units to be revealed only when LOS is established.
