How they keep their population down is they blow themselves up. see they never thought of swords and guns untill the yehat came along all they did in battle is run in with large barrels of black poweder on their back. once they were in range they would detinate it. Cheesy

Well, against such an army all you have to do is disperse your troops and their tactic will be ineffective. You need to have swords so that when your enemy is dispersed you can send in small squads that will locally outnumber the dispersed enemy.

This is why the pea shooter exists. It's not ALL glory device.

I'd prefer my trusty old potato gun  Cool

(To be honest, I never built one, because building stuff makes me hungry and I was always out of potatoes before the planning was through)

Dammit, LP! You always have to lead every thread to alcohol, don't you? I tried sooo hard NOT to do that  Cheesy

I better counter that by using up all ethanol I have right here before you come for a visit Wink

sorry, it's just in my nature I suppose. When I get a blood sample, they don't measure the percent of alcohol i nthe blood, they measure the percent of blood in the alcohol. Smiley

Seriously speaking though, seeing as my people invented the Molotov coctail I felt I needed to mention it among noble food weapons.

That's new to me! I always thought that the Molotow-Cocktail was naimed after Stalin's foreign Minister Molotow who's name served for the handmade gasoline-bombs used against Deutsche Panzer.

Well, you've got all the details right, except for one. Those homemade bombs were made by the finns, and used against SOVIET tanks when they invaded Finland during the Winter War.

For some reason, the russians really want the name for themselves nowadays, and they've even released an actual alcohol called Molotov Coctail. On the bottle of that, it's stated that it was developed during the great war of freedom against enemy tanks, and that is even what some history booksiover there say. The Soviet propaganda machine runs strong still. But it was in fact, out way of paying Molotov back for the ultimatums he made against our country.

My apologies to you, LP and to the Finns - the copyright is all yours!
My apologies to you, Novus, for getting off topic - I really shouldn't do that all the time...

As for the real topic - I don't know what else to say about it. If something else comes to my mind - I'll be back  Cheesy

Finland is the home of Nokia, one of the richest companies in the world (I think it's around 7th or something).  Basically, that's all I know the country for... hehe.   Cool

Canadians invented basketball, the telephone and even Superman!  No one can beat that.  Hehe, j/k of course.  But anyways, back to the shofixti... they're so loyal to the Alliance, as described in the SC1 and SC2 manuals, that they would die for their cause.  This extreme loyalty leads me to believe the Shofixti threat is only one directed towards the possible enemies of the New Alliance...

Solution to the Shofixti threat: feed them to the Orz. Just not all at once.

Well, who's gonna be quicker? The Orz curing their messed up stomach or the Shofixti rebuilding their population?

I bet that once the Orz are over their first really bad heartburn, the Shofixti will eventually win!
