Skirmish Sangin is an NZ designed tactical wargame simulating the modern conflict in Afghanistan. (Sangin is in Helmand province in southern Afghanistan. Some very heavy combat has occurred there involving 3 Para, 7th Marines and others.)
The book itself is really good looking with high quality British MOD photos scattered throughout and benefitting from the fact that one of the writers is a graphic designer as well. A good one at that I'd say!
It uses a percentile system which I was worried about but the modifiers actually are pretty simple. As most of you know I've got a lot of rpging under my belt so I'm not scared off by crunchy rule sets. This isn't just BRP as I was led to believe. It is a lot more simple and playable.
You will want to have some paper to keep track of your soldiers stats etc. and I would still probably limit it to a squad per side.
