Heavy Drop UCM

PostThu Apr 13, 2017 9:36 pm

I know the San Fran is considered the worst of the troopships. That said if you spam them and focus on the ground game at the expense of space they can be overwhelming. Let me give you an example of a list I just faced and seriously think about how you would deal with all this hull sending men to the ground! It seems like an easy space win but honestly it has been an uphill struggle for me using my current list ideas. This is slightly different as I face a New York with one less New Orleans but I think this one is even more effective if you are keeping a battleship in.

I think that its very interesting idea. In my opinion good mix of troopships+carriers and corvetts (depends of cost or durability) is a win if U overwhelm your oponent. Your post(s) about this tactics give my scheme to create this:

--------------------------------------
999 points [MassDrop] - 991pts
UCM - 6 launch assets

SR15 Line battlegroup (269pts)
1 x Madrid - 79pts - M
1 x Madrid - 79pts - M
1 x San Francisco - 111pts - M

SR12 Line battlegroup (308pts)
1 x Seattle - 132pts - M
1 x Seattle - 132pts - M
2 x Santiago - 44pts - L

SR9 Pathfinder battlegroup (239pts)
2 x New Orleans - 64pts - L
2 x New Orleans - 64pts - L
1 x San Francisco - 111pts - M

SR7 Pathfinder battlegroup (175pts)
1 x San Francisco - 111pts - M
2 x New Orleans - 64pts - L
