Simple and efficient. Well done! Will you add some antennas, even if it is sci-fi or is it safe to presume that in a galaxy far far away :) the comms works irrespectively if they are present or not?

Valderian, even in a galaxy far, far away, military principles work the same way: They'll set up the TOC somewhere blocking wireless signals, then complain bitterly when they can't talk to anyone. (My personal favorite was inside a quarry.)

Forwardmost units will be unheard when they beg for help, but pointless admin requests from "higher" will always reach them.

That said, very nice job, Legion 4.

Many thanks guys !!!!

They will raise long range antennas when in position. From a remote site. Otherwise with the high tech Commo of the far future. Shorter ranges won't need'm ! And hardened commo drones will relay … 😎

Yes, robert got it right. He must have worked in a TOC before !!!! 🤩😁

Thank you. Many happy memories of TOC time, heavy mech battalion and air assault brigade.

You know you're just about in the groove when you can sleep under your radios and wake up for your call sign--even when it changes halfway through.
