About an hour after dawn, local time, two hundred and fifty kilometers off the Irish coast. This is normally Squad 1's territory, but Squad 2 needs more experience, so they were sent out for this mission.
The tank is playing peekabo with a Lobsterman, which has actually managed to damage it slightly. LHN91 joins the exclusive “I legitimately oneshot a Lobsterman” club when he spots another one while moving to support. (After three other people missed it.)
The tank blasts its dance partner after having wounded it in the arm twice over the last two turns.
The accuracy issues that Squad 2 didn't have in the last mission are killing them this time, as all but three people on the team missed their shot (two of the others couldn't draw a line of fire, and Rhymes_With_PSYCHO hit with one and missed with one).
He responds to the Sonic shots flying all around him by throwing a grenade...which strikes an intervening object and the damn idiot's actually inside the blast radius of his own grenade.
Rhymes_With_PSYCHO's third shot is not a miss. Scratch one very stupid Lobsterman.
pecenipicek confronts an alien inside their ship at point-blank range. It shoots him twice in the chestplate with a Sonic Rifle, and is very unhappy to discover this doesn't do ****. Unfortunately neither he nor Hades putting rounds into its head and chest appear to bother the Lobsterman very much either.
Then one of the next two rounds the alien fires penetrates, badly injuring pecenipicek; he goes down and goes into shock almost instantly. Hades blasts the alien in response, killing it.
Due to his injuries pecenipicek will be out of action for over two months, so we're transferring in Doc Fox from Squad 3 to fill the gap until Squad 3 gets its own Triton.
