If you'll recall from the Hammer's Slammers books, the Slammers never
went up a similarly equipped opponent. So you'd only need ONE set of
Slammers vehicles. I'd say 3 or 6 tanks, 12-36 combat cars, a few
hover jeeps (don't forget the tri-barrel), and skimmer-mounted infantry
to taste. For OpFor (gratuitious jargon !) damn near anything. Ever
notice how Col. Hammer took a lot of jobs that required heavy fighting,
but only rarely against forces with powerguns ? Smart business man....
