Damn, they land on planets to....  :o

Oh that's good a reinforced infantry division, this should be fun! ;D

"Enemy in sight! Open fire!" Guns, lasers & cannon fire in the background...

"smeg, these are some tough bugs...!"

"Sir! we have reports of bugs attacking our reserve formations..."

"Sir, they have penetrated our defence perimeter... OH GOD, they are inside the command po...."

smeg!  :-X

I lost some 5000 groundtroops, ground to space installations, tanks... they lost 42 "men, bugs or whatever called..." Bloody HELL!!!  In the first days of fighting... :o

After a few days I am down to less than 60 tanks, 60 soldiers and a lot of support units with little or no ammo left...

Last communication from division command... "You are on your own now!"

Perhaps a 120-150 bugs killed, I lost many, many thousands of troops, need the navy....

Last count on enemy strength, around 10 000 of them...

Yea I know, but no ships in orbit... ;D  Oh well had a few test Mechanoid companies, (Super heavies with a huge gun and large auto cannons), they love the attention and are killing bugs in their thousands, well being a test unit, they had to little of supply, but they still might get the job done...

Had a space battle over Gliese 430 and managed to bag his troop transports, lost a couple of BCs and a lot of destroyer escorts... They I had to "bug" out, when a major bug fleet appeared, I managed to evade it and my 5th fleet is now 2 jumps away, waiting for 3rd and 4th fleet to join the war... I thought I had a fast and advanced fleet, speed around 9200, and ECM/ECCM of 4, but very thin armor (5-12), so glad I introduced shielding, acids are bad after a battle is won/lost... :'( But fighting ships with 16000 km/s, thin armor from 10... ECM of 6... Lasers that hit with 212 in damage... This will be a costly war
