Good. It's not that I don't like the idea, it's just I think FT is
pretty much perfect in it's current form. The only changes I can see
are moving some of the fighter rules from MT into FT, and adding
Realistic Movement (with the addition of limited rotation) as
an optional rule. (Plus clearing up a few questionable parts such
as Sub Packs, and beefing up Mines).

All in all, it would be a consolidation of FT2 rather than FT3.

Anyway, I'm happy with things as they stand as far as FT goes.

The prototypes were at Ragnacon. (I'd rather have embroydered shoulder
patches though, not thant anyone makes them or anything. 8-) )
