How about basing alien tactics on distance from UFO and their available forces?


Recommended Posts

For all I know, this has been suggested before or is already in play, but I got to thinking the other night, how would humans react if they were shot down over enemy territory? They would send out an alert and await rescue, doing what they could to survive in the mean time.

If there were enough of them, they would send out scouts to give some warning if the enemy was coming and from what direction. These would be encountered far away from the crashed ship.

If numbers permitted, there would be some skirmishers in the middle ranges. These guys would find good cover and fire at range, but if pressed, would retreat.

Close in, this should be a battle of attrition with the aliens digging in and doing whatever they could to keep the humans away from their ship.

Just some thoughts.
