Of course, that's assuming your intel is accurate.  If you
ambush 5 trucks and 2 APCs, and it turns out there's another
3 MICVs trailing 200m behind...

Which suggests that part of the scenario should be a
mechanism for "how long does it take the ambushee to get his
act together?" The convoy may be unblooded troops on their
way to the front, might take a suppression or two just from
being ambushed. Or might start firing in all
directions...including towards friendlies.

As that memorable low-casualties SG2 game you ran a couple
