In case anyone is getting confused by statements like "that's 8...plus 4...means you need a 4", you must remember that all modifiers apply to the die rolls, not the target values. So if you need to roll an 8, but the modifier is +4, then you really need to roll a 4 or less to get a final value of 8 or less. That's why the math sounds backwards. But you get used to thinking that way.

great job, this is making aslsk seem not too complex. In part one near the end you talk about first fire using the squad or mg. Why does the mg go down to 2 fp from 3?

The columns of the fire table are: 1 2 4 6 8 12 16 20... You use the column less than or equal to your firepower. 3 uses 2 column. 11 uses 8 column.
