I think all movement should be done at the same time. Just say that units
on "fall back" orders don't count for holding objectives. I have a faint
suspicion this might be in the TL rules, anybody know?

Do you mean "broken" as in (a) more than half destroyed or (b) on fall back
orders? I agree with this if you mean (b).

That's what the base morale value is for! HQ stands generally give a bonus
for this. Don't forget that there are squad leaders and platoon leaders in
the detachments.

Ok, maybe a morale check at the base morale level could be required to engage
SH's, Titan's, etc. I don't like the idea of penalties.

Definitely should be allowed to do this without a test!! The only thing I
would like to see changed about charging and FF is that command units
should not be allowed to engage in CC and FF in the same turn, but that's
not a morale issue.
