Maneuvers – Crossfire
Crossfire is extremely effective!
Crossfire is both Offensive

barbed wire, you become very
difficult to beat.
Add air cover to the mix, and
you become the impossible foe!
Crossfire is awesome at
defending your front lines.

Use the ultimate crossfire
defense in urban environments
Place people behind buildings on
both sides of the choke point
(entrance) where they could provide
Add a few snipers on top, barbed
wire around the entrances and a
small front line with minor
explosives and you have a recipe for
