FC TACTIC OF THE MONTH Continued

CHANGE FACING AT ZERO SPEED

Note that this costs two points' worth of movement; more than a Tactical Maneuver, but less than a High Energy Turn. And you can only change facing by one hexside; but if you're just trying to track a moving target, then one hexside might be all you need. You don't want to put yourself at speed zero just so you can do this trick, but if you're there anyway this may be the only way to turn a new shield or track a target with weapons. Of course, anyone moving faster will move after you do, and can take advantage of knowing your move. Even so, if this is all you have, you do have this much.
