    Hey Pablo, I liked the podcast! Nice to see my iTunes subscription to the Signals from the Frontline channel blessing me with a variety of shows now! I will say, the stuff you addressed in the podcast is very interesting and I’ll be tuning in again next time! Keep up the good work, and I’m excited to see your podcast grow!

    Great podcast
    I like the different format
    what frequency are you planning on doing these?

    And yes the deathstrike missile is 10″ S10 AP1 ignores cover barrage
    Single use and can’t fire first turn or any turn the vehicle has moved
    Also cannot suffer a weapon destroyed result
