The Attack Leader coordinates all the Unit's attacks. An Attack Leader can order attacks and use special tactics. A Unit can have only one Attack Leader at a time.

The below Actions include all Actions that can be performed while functioning as an Attack Leader in Mass Combat:

Standard Actions[edit | edit source]

Standard Actions include the following:

Aid Another[edit | edit source]

As a Standard Action, your Unit can aid an attack roll or supress an enemy.

Aiding an Attack Roll[edit | edit source]

You can aid the attack roll of another Unit or Vehicle by adding your Unit's firepower to the attack. An Attack Leader selects a target within the range of their Unit's weapons, and the Unit makes an attack roll against a Reflex Defense of 10 (Applying all Range penalties as though the Unit is attacking the designated target). If this attack is successful, the Attack Leader grants a single adjacent allied Unit or Vehicle a +2 bonus on it's next attack roll made against that target before the beginning of the Attack Leader's next turn.

Suppressing an Enemy[edit | edit source]

You can suppress the attack of an enemy Unit or Vehicle by bombarding the target with fire. An Attack Leader can select a target within the range of their Unit's weapons, and the Unit makes an attack roll against a Reflex Defense of 10 (Applying all Range penalties as though the Unit is attacking the designated target). If this attack is successful, the Attack Leader causes the target Unit or Vehicle to take a -2 penalty on it's next attack roll.

Attack with Melee Weapons[edit | edit source]

A ground Unit can make Melee Weapon Attacks against another ground Unit in it's square. If a Unit occupies occupies the same square as an enemy Unit or Vehicle, it can make a single melee attack against that target as a Standard Action. Individual characters cannot make melee attacks against Units.

Attack with Ranged Weapons[edit | edit source]

Units can make attacks using their ranged weapons. A Unit can target a Unit or Vehicle within its Range and attack with it's ranged weapons as a Standard Action. Individual characters cannot make ranged attacks against Units.

Attack with Vehicle Weapons[edit | edit source]

Vehicle Units can attack with each Weapon System that has its own Gunner. As a result, a Vehicle Unit can make more attacks per round than ground-based Units. Vehicle Weapon attacks follow all the same rules as in Vehicle Combat. Unlike individual creatures, an individual Vehicle can attack Units.

Fight Defensively[edit | edit source]

An Attack Leader can order the Unit to Fight Defensively as a Standard Action, hunkering down to resist an incoming attack. The Unit can make no attacks until the beginning of the Attack Leader's next turn, but gains a +5 bonus to it's Reflex Defense.
