Interesting point. From a game perspective, if you assume that it is
generally poor doctrine to fire GSMs at infantry (not positions!), then
perhaps implimenting a die roll to be *allowed* to take the shot makes
Private Bob might think that popping off a GSM at the sniper is clealrly
the right thing to do, but since the Sarge has told him that is not what
his missile is for, a quality check (by the player) to have Bob fire
against doctrine makes it somewhat less likely that Bob will be blowing
off rounds at the infantry.
