Sheer anarchy, the LI edition...

It seems quite unlikely that Anarchists would be able to compete with LI squadrons or field large battalions of infantry. What might their alternative tactics be?

Mines. Molotov Cocktails (or whoever the defense minister of the intended target is, since these pre-date Molotov). Tank traps with flaming oil. Avalanches once the LI are led into passes, ravines, etc.

Suicide bombers are an option, or magnetic mines. I could see "hidden" (dug in, camoflage positions) foxholes to wait for the LI to come to (or be led to) their position to attach the explosives to them.

Ambushes could be set by leading the LI into them, using highly mobile vehicles (fast vehicles, relative to LI, making them hard to hit).

There's always stolen or captured LI, too. And urban warfare and warfare in difficult (or impossible) terrain suits guerilla warfare.
