I'm begining to think you've been sending me telepathic suggestions. 

I was looking at the SG2 rule book last night and when I got to the the
reaction test section and read the following line "Reaction test is
whenever a unit is ordered to do something that its troops may or mat
have the nerve to carry out..." it hit me that mounted infantry should
a reaction test when ever they receive a suppression and if they fail
would do a 'crash dismount'.

I was thinking a reaction test with a threat level of +2 for the first
suppression. If they pass they can continue to do move and leader
but nothing else.  If they fail they do a 'crash dismount' and the
suppression effects them like normal infantry.	On the getting a second
suppression the threat level would be +4 and on the third an automatic
crash dismount with no roll.  This would add an element of uncertainty
it. (With out a roll I could see people exposing mounted infantry
they weren't going to be forced to stop moving until they get a second

I based the threat level on the going into position roll, it seem to be
similar situation to a crash dismount (sort of)
