So, I think I officially became luckiest still surviving trooper. Two kills on my first mission, first trooper to take down a Chryssalid, and surviving friendly fire from the HLPX-COM resident badass The_E.
When the new Interceptor arrives, my reported last words to my squaddies were "**** this ****" (or if I die. Same last words either way).
It's already here, so you don't have to deal with another ground mission. Interceptor 3 is currently arming and fueling in the Hanger at Dekker's Pad. -Joshua- has magically taken your place.
Speaking of which, the all-time soldier list as updated for recent actions. (We let Flipside out of the lab so he could take over manning the tank at Dekker's Pad in case of emergency.)Support Staff
