We played this scenario yesterday and we couldn't quite figure out how the cards are supposed to work. They read that there is no close combat firepower modifier. Why then would one use these cards as a regular close combat attack gives a higher attack value? The only thiong we could come up with is that the CARD doesn't give a CC modifier, but the unit does so you're supposed to add the firepower of the card to the firepower of the unit with a CC bonus. Is this correct?

Two main reasons:

1) Some units (like LMGs, HMGs) have a negative CC modifier. Having no CC modifier is better than a negative one.

2) The card doesn't use APs or CAPs, so if your unit is spent and you have no CAPs left, you still have a last ditch way of defending yourself.

Also, you can use the cards to group fire - i.e., add +1 to a regular CC attack.

No, this is incorrect.
