Alright, I know this doesn't happen until the first few waves of the FedCom Civil War, but this jackass should be hung for what he does along the Draconis March. He's a fool!

I'm actually somewhat curious how an "inspection tour" will actually look like. It's not like they can just ferry in another complete regiment for evaluation purposes to check out performance live. On ever single garrison planet visited. So will they do just simulator battles? I used to have a story idea shelved up for something like this but cannot really remember its details at the moment.

But back to the main question - how do you perform an effective evaluation on an inspection tour when you don't have anything handy you can see live performance pitched against? The simulator-only option seems somewhat inaedequate.

D, inspection tours are not about the unit's performing combat, it's about how presentable, inspection-ready they are. Games like those on Galatea and several other worlds, surely, across the Inner Sphere, are about making sure units are combat-ready. Remember Murphy's Laws of Combat... "An inspection-ready unit is never combat-ready, and a combat-ready unit is never inspection-ready."

Silly me, must have thought about a combat readiness report or something, not a mere parade and trooping the colors. :)

All that money watesed on a glorified parade. Shameful use of tax money.
