There are 9 types of terrain:
1. Clear Terrain= No modifiers; Agriculture
2. Rough Terrain= Woods, urban areas, rubble, craters, swamps, jungles.
Ground units occupying rough terrain negate a hit on a roll of 1-2 on D6.
3. Treacherous Terrain= Ravines, Mountains. 
Vehicles & Mechs cannot enter Treacherous terrain.
Infantry units occupying treacherous terrain negate hits against them on a 
roll of 1-2 on D6.
4. Shallow Water = Rivers, Lakes. The only ground units that may enter are 
Hovercraft & Mechs.
5. Deep Water = Seas, Oceans. Hovercraft only.
Jump troops may jump over water hexes.
6. Radioactive Crater- Any ground unit that enters, passes thru, or remains 
in this hex receives a hit on a roll of 1-2 on D6.
Any nonwater hex hit by a nuke becomes a radioactive crater.
7. Airfields = Aircraft may (un)board units in these hexes.
8. Installations = A building or complex with 1-3 hits. 
Often a target to satisfy victory conditions.
Factory installations generate 1 Cred per day. 
They must be supported by agricultural, power generation, mining, and 
urban hexes.
9. Fortifications = Ground units in the same hex may enter the fort or 
remain outside. The Fort takes hits before the occupants do.
10. Minefield- Any ground unit that enters or passes thru this hex 
receives a hit on a roll of 1-2 on D6.

Any number of units may occupy a hex.

All units may be equipped with one or more nukes according to the scenario.
A nuke automatically destroys every unit in the hex it attacks.
The nuke attack has the same range as the unit firing it.
Nukes cost 20 Creds. Nukes are destroyed when used.

Costs 10 Creds. Attach to any unit.
Completely absorbs one Nuke attack in same hex and is then destroyed.

Certain Installations can repair units.
The unit must start its move there and not move or attack that turn to 
repair one hit.

VTOL & Ground Units may be held in reserve in space in Drop Ships.
When needed they may be dropped onto the battlefield in one way landers 
called Drop pods.
They land in move phase during Initiative =1
Some or all of the reserve units may be dropped during a turn. 
Each has its own pod.
The unit may enter the map in any empty hex. 
Units that start the scenario in orbit cost an extra 20%.
Units cannot tag in the turn they are dropped.

An attack from orbit can target any unit in any hex on the underlying 
ground map.
Attacks are in the form of Nukes.
Orbital attacks require a Jump capable ship. 
Use OA3000 rules to purchase orbiting ships.
Ground based attacks by Orbital Guns can target any space unit in the 
overlying orbital hex.

Aeromechs, VTOL, and Aircraft only. Costs 6 Creds.
During Move phase the unit may go into orbit. Remove unit from the map.
If also playing Orbital Assault 3000 place the unit in the corresponding 
orbital hex.
On any turn following that the unit may return to the map on any hex as 
its move. The unit may start the scenario in orbit.

Give each side 200 Creds with which to buy units. Give the attacker an 
extra 50 creds.
Each side must contain at least 20 units, at least half of which must be 
ground units.
The defender may purchase up to 10 Fortifications. 
The attacker cannot buy forts.
Victory is achieved by destroying all enemy units or the Defender 
automatically wins after 20 turns.
Only the attacker may purchase orbital missile attacks & Drop pods.
Forces are set up at opposite ends of the map.
