I normally do not like to copy other National Characteristics, however the Finnish one appears to be applicable to the USMC.

“ When a Leader is attached to Finnish Section or Team and uses two Command Initiatives he may order his men to surge forward. The Section or Team will fire with half the dice, move 1D6 inches and assume a Tactical stance, in that order.”

This coincides with doctrine I have read in “Fighting on Guadalcanal” where Marines would push forward and around enemy positions. If someone was wounded they were especially told to push forward so Corpsman could advance safely. It is a balance between Marching Fire and the Tactical piece makes sense given the jungle terrain.

Fire, move and go tactical sounds like it would be a decent boost in ability. I would want some playtesting before that got implemented.

And also: when you are playtesting one of your ideas, it's best to be in the receiving end of the new idea.

True that! Happened just yesterday with me as the Japanese defending. The Marine player used it a few times to do some bounding and while it allows the shoot and move Tactical advantage it was tempered that you had to have a leader use all activations to do it. When Shock and other special commands started to pile up it limited it use, so definitely a fair weather tactic.
