I was such a hot chick... Brave, valiant, deadly accurate. The kind that gives "real X-COM men" inferiority complex. Eh well, vodka it is! Please leave some for the clone.

To a commander who made the ultimate sacrifice rather than let one of his men fall in battle!  

(See Mero, just like in TV programs, it pays to have a "named" character. :argh:  Of course, if this were a TV show, Mero would turn out to have a Psi Strength of 100 or something to have made SV's death very significant.)

Euro interceptor has run out of fuel while patrolling near the Russian UFO and has had to return to base. Therefore, our New Guinea base will lead the assault!

S_tactical_745.png S_tactical_746.png S_tactical_747.png
Our transport descends into the Borneo jungles. The ramp drops and 2 smoke grenades do their magic. Our squad rushes out of the plane and secures the immediate area. Andrea moves out in front and spots an alien lurking in the shadows... NKF fires a well placed rocket into the underbrush and blows the alien to bits! Otto moves forward to survey the damage...Floaters!

S_tactical_748.png S_tactical_751.png
Andrea moves near the UFO, clearing some ground to the east of the transport. EBM draws down on a floater in the distance....dead.

S_tactical_752.png S_tactical_753.png S_tactical_754.png
Otto spots an alien moving behind some ferns, but he's hiding now...Time to clear it out! The undergrowth burns to the ground, a floater comes back into view! Mr. EBM....FIRE!

S_tactical_755.png S_tactical_756.png
Meanwhile on the eastern front: Brett spots another alien, but he's in a difficult position to deal with. Andrea tosses a grenade and we cross our fingers.

S_tactical_758.png S_tactical_759.png
The alien trips the grenade, but doesn't die....A bolt of plasma strikes Andrea down! Luckily, NKF is in a decent position and can fire on the vegetation near the alien, killing it in the blast.

S_tactical_762.png S_tactical_763.png S_tactical_764.png
Our troops continue their sweep and begin to gather near the entrance.

S_tactical_765.png S_tactical_766.png
Uta primes and tosses a proximity grenade near the entrance to cover it while the rest of the squad arrives.

S_tactical_767.png S_tactical_768.png S_tactical_770.png S_tactical_771.png S_tactical_772.png
An alien moves through the door. The grenade blows. Then about 3 more come out behind him and we kill them all!

S_tactical_773.png S_tactical_774.png S_tactical_776.png
Unfortunately, some more come out behind them...and we don't manage to kill them...4 of our 5 remaining troops are cut down in an intense 30 second firefight. It's down to just EBM, and he avoids panic to squeeze off a shot. The last alien drops dead.

S_geoscape_492.png S_geoscape_493.png
Well, congrats EBM, you have survived! And we get promotions. Jman is Commander, Strike is Colonel, Thor is a Captain and Mero and EBM are Sergeants!

S_geoscape_494.png S_geoscape_495.png
EBM was a beast out there with 6 kills. Downside, he was the only soldier to return from that last mission. We don't even have enough men to field a full squad so we're going to replace everyone that died.

S_geoscape_499.png S_geoscape_500.png S_geoscape_502.png
We find another UFO...It's large and heading in at 4800kt. Must be....a TERROR SHIP! It flies down into South America and our interceptor loses track of it, until....

Yes, I see the grand plan behind this all... You'd go over corpses (starting with mine!) to become the commander, HUH?!?!!!!?!??!

That must have been really intense, losing five soldiers. EBM must have some balls. Statistics may be hiding them well, but the field took the pants down! Ehm, that came out wrong. :what:

Good luck with the terror ship.

You never noticed that Jman was next in line to be Commander.. I'm surprised it took him that long. I guess he needed the time to not make it look so obvious....

S_geoscape_503.png S_geoscape_504.png
Our interceptor leaves it's patrol site and makes a bee line for Rio.

S_tactical_777.png
We set down on the edge of the LZ. This gives us cover, cover is good.

S_tactical_780.png S_tactical_781.png S_tactical_782.png S_tactical_784.png
We smoke up and our squad piles out of the transport. Thor finds one of those crab bastards, this is not good.. Thor, Brett and Tycho all fire on it before it drops. Moments later, a snake comes out of cover and shoots Tycho in the chest! He falls down unconscious.

S_tactical_786.png S_tactical_787.png
Another crab shows up and we have to take it out before we can help Tycho. Luckily, it doesn't hold up as well as the other one did.. Thor pulls out his medikit, heals Tycho, then runs out of the line of fire.

S_tactical_789.png S_tactical_790.png S_tactical_791.png
Meanwhile, Pete spots a snake moving into the park. Jman and BB try to drop it, but they fail...

S_tactical_792.png S_tactical_793.png S_tactical_795.png S_tactical_796.png
Moments later, a burst of plasma fire comes in right where Thor was just standing...Luckily he had moved over. Brett however, wasn't so lucky. Thor raises his pistol and guns down the snakeman. He then runs away, firing on the cryssie as his escapes, but doesn't drop it.

S_tactical_800.png S_tactical_801.png S_tactical_802.png
Pete, BB and Jman are still dealing with that snake...and it seems BB screwed up and blew out a wall to this building while missing the snakeman....This succeeded in wounding everyone and exposing us to a horde of crabs. And it seems that they have been busy in there...Jman fires a stun bomb in there, but nothing happens.

S_tactical_803.png S_tactical_804.png S_tactical_805.png S_tactical_806.png
One of them comes out and fakes us out. This scares BB a bit and he fires on it...The two active cryssies fall unconscious, the zombie "hatches". Everyone makes it a priority to kill this thing before it can come kill someone! Finally Thorondor drops it with a burst of autofire.

S_tactical_808.png S_tactical_809.png
Another alien comes wandering into the warehouse and BB drops it with his last rocket!

S_tactical_810.png S_tactical_812.png
Thor finally gets back up with the rest of the squad and he heals up Jman and BB. That rocket that took out that wall really gave these two quite a beating!

S_tactical_814.png S_tactical_815.png
Another snakeman shows up on the other end of the park and fires on Pete! The shots all miss, and a cryssie makes a move on him as well, but he turns around and chickens out!

S_tactical_817.png S_tactical_818.png S_tactical_819.png S_tactical_820.png S_tactical_822.png
Pete tries yet again to fire on the snake on the other side of the park..he yet again misses and runs out of ammo and has to reload. BB, out of rockets, simply drops his gun and draws his pistol to fire on the snake and kills it the first try! Take that Mr. Pete! Jman, the only guy in position to shoot atm, tries to take on the other 3 aliens solo. His stun bomb hits...but nothing over there drops...shit...

I guess this is alien payback for how we managed to remain unscathed in the last terror mission. Thank God for armor!

S_tactical_823.png S_tactical_824.png
Psych! Thor was hiding behind some people and moved over to take a shot. His burst cuts down the snake and he reloads his gun.

S_tactical_827.png S_tactical_829.png
A cryssie runs up! Pete fires, Pete misses. BB, however, does not. His laser blast drops the little bastard in only one hit. Suddenly, a snakeman comes out of the shadows. He shoulders a plasma rifle and guns Pete down! Noooooo! Thorondor returns fire and drops his ass!

S_tactical_831.png S_tactical_832.png
Another cryss shows up, Thor stuns it....we do NOT want that thing to get back up.....BB! Throw in that det pack!

S_tactical_833.png S_tactical_835.png
Moments later, a grenade lands next to Pete's corpse. He is incenerated in the blast. We start scouting to find out what happened and we see an unarmed snakeman standing in that same area across the park.... Thor! Finish him!

S_tactical_842.png
Well well well...look who decided to rejoin the party! Tycho gets up and staggers back into cover.

S_tactical_844.png S_tactical_846.png
Jman spots yet another cryssie moving in on our position....These things have got to be breeding... He draws down on it with his laser pistol and cuts it down in two bursts!

S_tactical_848.png S_tactical_850.png S_tactical_851.png
A snake moves up and fires on us! Luckily it misses and retreats back out of range. Thor however, doesn't have this issue. He takes out the snake, and his crablike buddy in two bursts!

S_tactical_854.png
Suddenly, another snake comes at us from the far west...Luckily, Tycho is there to react to it, and somehow hit it despite being COMPLETELY out of his mind on painkillers!

S_tactical_857.png
Jman catches another snake trying to sneak around to our flank using the warehouse as cover. He reacts and guns the poor sap down...better luck next time.

S_tactical_859.png S_tactical_860.png S_tactical_861.png
And yet another cryssie shows up!...and somehow Tycho manages to get another kill with his 5 health and head full of drugs..

S_tactical_864.png
We hear the sounds of indescriminent plasma fire in the distance. It's about 9 shots, and no civilian screaming. I think someone is going nuts over there because we've been slaughtering all his buddies!

S_tactical_865.png
BB spots another alien move up on us. He cuts it down with laser fire!

S_tactical_866.png S_tactical_868.png
We hear it again...We move on the alien's position and BB guns him down!

S_geoscape_505.png S_geoscape_506.png
That...was a fierce battle. 2 dead, 3 wounded. Thor is the only person that won't be in the infirmary for weeks...Congrats Silencer! You got Pete's rank! Go you!

S_geoscape_508.png
AmeriCom Base, this is Thorondor. Standby for incoming wounded!

S_geoscape_509.png
Well, our elite strike squad is shot to hell...Thor is the only one still on his feet. Looks like we won't be hitting that base in Canada for a while..

S_geoscape_510.png S_geoscape_511.png S_geoscape_512.png S_geoscape_513.png S_geoscape_516.png
This Thorondor clone is a total beast...He's got 26 kills and only 7 missions under his belt. His stats are also through the roof. Accuracy and strength are up about 20 and reactions up over 10! Jman somehow lucked out and is only out for 16 days...While BB is out for nearly a month! Tycho, however, barely made it home alive, and his recovery time reflects this...36 days! Also, we clone another Pete, and this Pete will be better than the other 4!
