While crawling across the top of Takur Ghar last night, we came upon this situation: the Special Forces team MAKO 30 (6 men) is splitting its fire evenly and engaging two Al Qaeda Cells at the same time. Both Al Qaeda Cells are able to return fire, both have a firepower of 6D.
Now, what is MAKO 30's Basic Defensive against the return fire: 6D or 3D? We ruled it is 6D, as both Al Qaeda cells of course are firing at the whole of MAKO 30, not just singling out the guys shooting at them. But somehow that doesn't feel quite right: in each case one half of MAKO 30 is busy engaging another enemy unit, so how could that half actively contribute to the defense against the second AQ Cell?
Any ideas how to resolve such a situation in a more satisfying way?

They are contributing to the defence by being aware that a second AQ team exists and take up fire positions that have the best possible cover from those positions.
The FP dice reflect effective fire against an enemy team this does not mean that the unengaged team is not actually sniping back at this second team but not placing effective fire against them. So in effect they are effectively engaging one team with their fire but using good use of cover and concealment to prevent them being hit and firing ineffectively at this team to keep their heads down too.
Hope that makes sense....
