Our weekly design discussions continue!

Compared to science fiction and fantasy, there are relatively few RPG’s that are set in military melieu.  The pair seem a perfect match (individual action, combat, small-unit tactics) but then historical reality sets in (no clerics, magic spells, cool weapons, or medbots).  Does RPG + Wargame really work?  Do you have any favorite examples?
