Hey Space Cadets, how are you today? I’m great, still riding the high my Dragon gave me yesterday! I wrote 5k words and will hit the finish line in under ten days! Operation Breakout is now at 68k words and around 75% complete and I couldn’t be happier! Now, let’s see if I can keep up this pace! Admittedly, I am at the fun part of the book which is the easiest to write. I mean, what’s not to love about writing combat scenes?
Now, onto today’s topic! Today’s Marine Monday is about combat tactics in an interstellar universe, which requires fighting men and women to consider things in this spherical manner instead of on a plane. It’s not just what above of 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 vacuums 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 the LegionLeaks hero! Take a peak, before they come for us and it disappears forever!
One of the afore mentioned tactics is the Compass Point Formation. Interested in knowing more? Well, read the excerpt from their manual, and give it a quick look over!
Hopefully this whet your appetite for me, and if so you should pop on back next week where we look at other combat formations!
Until next time, stay frosty and don’t forget to keep your powder dry!
