“Tactical Gain of 4.7% from estimated attack vectors”
The AI module kept chattering as incoming gauss fire churned up the ground. On the screens, they had made enlistment look pretty slick. Powered armour suits, gravity suspension vehicles, high tech wizardry.
It's still mud and blood. No matter how good the tech, in the end, you still need someone to bleed in the mud.
Welcome to the battlefields of the 22nd century.

No Stars in Sight is your guide to platoon level "hard scifi" warfare on a near-future battlefield.
Using the battle-tested game mechanics of No End in Sight, the game offers you:
A turn sequence that keeps you involved and making choices about how hard to push each squad leader.
Movement and reaction fire mechanics that emphasize the difficulty in maneuvering over open ground. Every rush across that fire swept ground is a gamble. This is not your dads opportunity fire!
Combat rules that are straight forward and emphasize suppression over unrealistic casualty rates.
A solid military feel.
A variety of troop types possible: Insurgents, special operations teams, powered armour "walking tanks" bristling with fire power.
A high-tech battlefield: Hackers, drone operators, grav tanks, exo-suits and much more.
Campaign rules and random scenario generation.
A full-featured points system to help guide your scenario setup.
A series of aliens covering 12 archetypes from popular fiction and scifi media. Implacable robots, skittering bugs and ancient, refined aliens rub shoulders with honourable warriors and horrifying human-machine hybrids.
