Critical hits with Forward Observer
Critical hits with Forward Observer have no additional special benefits. Specifically, rolling a Critical with this Special Skill does not turn subsequent Guided Special Ammunition attacks into automatic Criticals.
Forward Observers are specialists armed with the tools to provide allies with telemetry and data on the exact location of hostile forces on the battlefield in order to maximize the effectiveness of indirect fire. These units are responsible for the targeting and correction of artillery and support fire coming from airspace and naval platforms and from the field itself. To do this, they carry state-of-the-art communications equipment whose signal-emitting capabilities can be repurposed as defensive Flash Pulse projectors.
