So in Ambush Alley you have firepower and defense caps of 10D each. In Force on Force you have firepower caps but I cannot see any defense caps. Perhaps it is buried somewhere in the rules or a chart or table but.. So does the defense cap continue in FoF or just the firepower cap? Thank you.
There is a cap on Basic Defense. It is the number of figured in the unit or the Firepower of the attack against it, whichever is less. So if the firepower against a unit is 4 dice and the unit has 6 figures then the cap for Basic Defense is 4 dice. If the firepower dice is 6 and the unit only has 4 figures then the cap is 4 dice. After that there is a potential to add up to an additional 8 dice depending on cover and body armor.
So I guess the theoretical cap would be about 18 dice.
Thank you Bob. Looks like the case. I understood the basic cap but nowhere did they specifically state, like the offensive cap, an absolute limit. So I was hoping someone else might have seen it somewhere. Maybe hidden in one of the expansion books, in some Q&As or errata.
