not sure if the (Bison or Coyote/LAV) is designed to lose wheels more or
less easily. I do know that after a roadside bomb, they are disabled a
of the time. And you can say they're mobile enough to leave the scene,
that tends to prove not true judging by the number of flipovers (onto
top) or tipovers (onto the side) I've seen in the news. Also, there tend
be two-phase bombings and consequently that suggests they were not able
So, the questions are:
1a) How do you make a fair attack role in DS/SG with an IED that is
1b) Alternately, sensor detonated?
2) How would this translate into SG2s major/minor impact? Or would it?
3) When such an attack hits and it is a buried mine underneath, what
be the odds of suspension damage on a non-penetrating hit?
4) Should M-kill chances vary with suspension type (more wheels, less
to hit, tracks harder to hit, etc)?
I'm looking for some fair ways to represent these aspects in game.
