Hey Space Cadets, how are you today? I’m great, and only have four chapters left in Operation Breakout. I finished my short story submission to the Roswell Anthology, which after a quick edit will be submitted to Tickety Boo Press, Ltd. tomorrow. I was invited to another anthology, which will be written with a co-author, and outlined it as well! It’s top secret for now, and we will tell you about it at some point in the future. Anyway, life is good!
Now, onto today’s topic! Today’s Marine Monday is a continuation of last week’s discussion about combat tactics in an interstellar universe. If you missed it, read about the Compass Point Formation here. You really missed out, I’m not trying to make you feel guilty, but if you do…maybe that’s the universe telling you to check in on my blog more regularly!
So, the tactics of void combat! Such tactics require fighting men and women to consider things in this spherical manner instead of on a plane. It’s not just what is above you and around you, now it’s what’s below you and around you as well. This obviously means that future warriors will have to be even more alert than their modern counterparts. Further, the cost for making mistakes escalates when you are discussing combat in the vacuum of space. The Void is a harsh and unforgiving place where only the strong survive, which necessitates the creation of new and constantly evolving tactics for the battlefield. What works today, might not work tomorrow.
How do we know all of this? Well, today we have another excerpt from one of the manuals purloined by our LegionLeaks hero! Take a peak, before they come for us and it disappears forever!
One of the afore mentioned tactics is the Half Compass Point Formation. Interested in knowing more? Well, read the excerpt from their manual, and give it a quick look over!
Hopefully this will whet your appetite for me, and if so you should pop on back next week where we look at another combat formation!
Until next time, stay frosty and don’t forget to keep your powder dry!
