Worded like this: All in a unit must firing to take a sheild down only
2/3rds need to hit to do this, if they fail to get enough hits no sheild is
removed. If a unit with a -1 TSM is firing to take down a sheild only 1/2
need to hit rounding down. If a unit with -2 TSM is firing then on 1/3 need
to hit rounding down. If -3 only one model needs to hit.
