The MG team are the ranged unit of the Postmodern Era. In contrast to progressive and modern era ranged units, MG teams are resistant to fast units and weak to artillery units. They have the special ability "Contact!" which allows them to retaliate against any unit that attacks it from within its range (7 hexes on the postmodern map), including those that are hidden. Currently, its description says always retaliates against attacks, but this refers to attacks that are in range. The currently available units that can attack a MG team without retaliation are artillery units, snipers, anti-materiel snipers and combat drones.
