X-NET Secure Logon: Authorised Personnel Only


Above the skies of Earth, a secret war is being waged.
A war humanity is losing - will lose, unless someone can stop it.
X-Com alone has the will, skill and technology to oppose our invaders.

We are a top-secret multi-national military task force assembled to investigate, interdict and oppose an unknown enemy threat of extra-terrestrial origin.
Our operatives are recruited from the best and brightest individuals worldwide, representing the very best Earth has to offer.
We are an elite unit, made up of the cream of the crop, and Earth's greatest resource for defending against the unknown enemy.

As a shadowy semi-autonomous top secret paramilitary organisation that no government on Earth will publicly acknowledge, it is no longer possible to join X-Com.
Trust us when we say you'll live longer this way.

    X-Com Craft and Armaments

    Intercept and Interdict Craft
    Craft designed to fulfill a tactical engagement and combat role against orbit-capable craft.

    Interceptor
    Spoiler:
    Based on a Standard Earth template with several tactical and mechanical enhancements designed to elevate craft performance to a level capable of engaging suspected UFO performance profiles, the X-Com Interceptor is the workhorse of the X-Com engagement fleet. Although unable to match the top speed of even the slowest Alien craft, its formidable payload and widespread use gives the X-Com fleet Interdiction capability over more than half the globe.

    Firestorm
    Spoiler:
    The first earth-designed craft utilising Alien Elerium-Graviton technology, the Firestorm is a small fighter craft with a performance profile unmatched by any prior craft built on Earth. Capable of engaging UFOs during transorbital descent/ascent, the Firestorm is capable of engaging almost every known UFO vessel. The only drawback is the fuel requirement of the graviton powerplant: the ship consumes considerable amounts of rare Elerium to attain its incredible performance, and with a limited supply of the precious materiel, deployment of the craft is necessarily limited.

    Avenger
    Spoiler:
    The Avenger is a supreme craft. Design estimates and simulations speculate that an Avenger operating in Earth orbit could be an even match for a Battleship-class craft, although the risk of failure or time and expense of required repairs following such an engagement would be prohibitive to operational status. Still, if worst comes to worst and the scale of this conflict escalates into a planet-wide engagement, the development of the Avenger could delay Earth's capitulation by as much as a year. However, the most important point is that the Avenger is an armed military transport craft, capable of delivering an entire Platoon of soldiers to another planet with enough armour and armament to deter counter-attack. That is to say, we finally have a craft capable of transporting a Contact Team to Mars to engage the enemy on their home turf for once.

    Enhanced Directed Energy Weapons
    Weapons based on particle or focused beam technology.

    Plasma Beam
    Spoiler:
    Capable of shredding alien alloys into molten slag in seconds, the Plasma Beam has become the main air-to-air weapon deployed against UFOs. A single Plasma Beam is frequently all that's required against all but the largest alien craft encountered, although many pilots choose to supplement the weapon with additional weapons for variety.

    Laser Cannon
    Spoiler:
    Replacing the common cannon as the most basic weapon in the arsenal of air-to-air weapons, the Laser Cannon shares many of the same benefits of the Plasma Beam: a high rate of fire, nil time-to-target and an essentially limitless supply of ammunition. While it lacks the superior performance and punching power of the Plasma weapon, this is balanced out by the low cost of manufacture, granting X-Com an essentially unlimited number of these weapons for internal distribution.


    Conventional Missile Weapons
    Weapons based on conventional Earth-based chemical/projectile technology.

    Stingray
    Spoiler:
    Based on mass-produced missile technology used widely around the globe, the Stingray is a readily available all-purpose missile capable of being deployed in high numbers. A single hardpoint can take 6 of these weapons; a payload large enough to score significant damage on a large number of the alien fleet - provided all of the missiles hit. However, even a small number of these missile can bring down smaller craft, and the high number of missiles on a hardpoint means there are more opportunities to hit.

    Avalanche
    Spoiler:
    The superior earth-based missile weapon, the Avalanche has (at present) the longest range of any weapon in the X-Com arsenal. Combined with its high explosive payload and excellent accuracy, this is a highly useful ranged weapon, whose only drawback is the relatively small number of missiles a craft is capable of carrying: a single hardpoint can only carry 3 of these bulky munitions: enough to bring down a small UFO, but not enough to inflict critical damage against the larger spacecraft.

    Project Ares - update

    EYES ONLY - UNAUTHORISED ACCESS RISKS TERMINATION


    Sir - we have it.

    We have long suspected that the Alien forces were orchestrated from a central location; the command structure seems to be a strict heirarchy, with clear rank and chains of command. However, until we encountered the Ethereal race, we never suspected the extent and depth of that command.

    From the data recovered by Contact Team Terra, we now understand that the Alien 'empire' is a psychic tyranny, with all actions and activities directly orchestrated from a single, central points of command. There is a single point of authority within this entire Solar System; it commands the Ethereals, who disseminate these commands through the Alien force, from the Mutons to the Sectoids. The control is absolute; all signs of alternate command structures or redundant control mechanisms are treated the same as an insurrection or heresy.

    A strike against this central authority would send the enemy force into disarray; the entire command structure would break down, and without a central authority directing their efforts, the Alien invasion of Earth would not just stop; it would collapse completely.

    And we have found the location of the Alien command center.

    UFO%20Defense%202012-09-16%2021-31-22-79.png

    It will still take time to ready and assemble the team, build and equip an Avenger, and prepare a plan of assault, but we now have our target and know that there is a central command weakness that, if neutralised, will effectively cause the dissolution of organised opposition and coordination in the invasion of Earth. For all intents and purposes, it will see an end to the conflict, with all Alien forces ceasing to function and no longer threatening the planet; a complete and total victory for the forces of X-Com and Earth.

    All we have to do is protect our forces and survive until we are ready to strike.

    Well.

    This closes the book on most remaining questions from Aquatic. Well, the ones I want answers for.

    We needed something that could unseat a species of priest-kings bordering on gods. The Ethereals seem to fit the bill nicely.

    And now we have to wipe them out.

    They say God protects fools, children, and the United States of America. We're already down to one for three.

    Let's hope the fools part holds a little longer.
