Summer grasses / All that remains / Of soldiers' dreams. - Basho.
I just got the game and so far it sounds pretty good.
One question in regards to gunships though. I notice that the gunships cannot be hit. Wouldn't the land units have some capabilities in defense against helicopters?
That's factored into your activation number roll to see if they show up. A lot of "factors" are baked into various values in this game.
