2006: Saudi Arabia experiences a coup and the Royal Saud family is deposed. Mounting dissent against the Royal government's cooperation with America and its allowing of foreign bases on their soil has led to a radical group taking power with overwhelming popular support. Unfortunately, this came as a surprise to the world since information on just how bad the domestic situation was prior to the coup was held from American officials. Syria and Egypt announced plans to co-develop nuclear energy plants with Russian partners. Syria was placed under sanctions due to its nuclear energy announcement, its involvement in Iraq, and its continued ocupation of Lebanon. Egypt faced no international opposition due to its friendly status with the West. Several months later, Egypts democratically elected president was assassinated and a military coup took power with aims to remove the West.

Just a thought, since paladin crews are trained to do a maneuver where they can fire a shell, lower the barrel a bit, then fire again. They do this several times so that they can fire an entire artillery barrage like this from one paladin and all of the rounds land at the same time. Is there any way you will implement this technique as a special power or something?

I believe that's called Multiple Round Simultaneous Impact (MRSI).

this doesn't even sound physically possible, unless they're variable powder charges.

no what happens is the paladin fires a shell at a high trajectory, then another shell at a little bit lower trajectory. So since the shell were fired like that, one a bit after the other one, and the one on a lower trajectory should impact within in a few milliseconds of the first one's impact. it is no special ability we use it in real life with our M109 paladins.... our crews are trained to fire that way so one M109 can do some pretty serious damage all by itself

yeah man. I agree with you. That tank must have a special ability for more extensive damage to the base.
