On the Core Squadron cards, lets say for example an Area Denial Squadron, there are colored boxes under each set of damage circles. This particular cards has red, yellow, and green boxes (with what looks like an Mega-Damage gear symbol), but other cards can have anywhere from no colored symbols to any combination of red, green, and yellow.

Since the rulebook doesn't have a breakdown anywhere of the cards (most games show you a stat card with a break-down of what each area of the card means), I'm at a loss for what this set of symbols mean.

I've scoured the rulebook and can't find any reference to these. I seem to recall something about this mentioned during the KS, but yeah, that was a while ago :)

Thanks,
Don

This has boggled me since I opened the box and I have yet to hear an official answer. The answer that sounded most plausible is that the colored boxes replaced the ammo boxes that were supposed to be on the cards according to the rulebook.

They are where you tick of ammo, the weapons in the cards have marching colors

So... I guess I'll just start the game with writing the number on those boxes and just erasing and counting down.

I thought they were going to have pips for each ammo that you could mark off.

The colored boxes( on the larger squadron cards) correspond with the colored weapons (these should be on the back of the standard card sized mecha cards with the stats) that use ammo and I believed that they are meant for ammo tracking. I think the symbols are nothing more than graphical design to make it more pretty.

I see that they do match up, but there aren't any tick boxes in each of the colored boxes. Not very useful except maybe as a reminder that there are different weapon systems.

Thanks
Don

I didn't even think about it before you asked. And now I am very interested because I do not want to believe that they made these drawings just for design. At least I like to think so. I recently found papernow reviews and ordered several works from them, so they taught me to think that everything has its origins and meaning. I hope that this discussion will be updated and someone will be able to accurately answer this question because now I can not calm down until I know the answer.
