X-NET Secure Logon: Authorised Personnel Only

X-Com is 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.


Information for new recruits:

X-Com is constantly vigilant against an active threat. Alien incursions are detected, intercepted and engaged on a weekly basis. As active units sustain ongoing casualties while performing combat missions, replacement troops are brought in from the recruitment waitlist. Should anyone of sufficient skill wish to !sign up for duty, they will be added to the waitlist upon receiept of their enlistment notice below. To be placed in an active Contact Team, they must also respond to a call up notice when their name gets called from the list.


Information for existing soldiers:

As Earth's premier secret planetary defense operation, X-Com is provided with worldwide access and resources that other semi-autonomous shadow paramilitary organisations can only dream of. Recent funding increases (combined with scientific advances and analysis and review of previous encounters with extra-terrestrial combatants) have allowed for more flexibility in equipping and armament for X-Com ground interdiction. Soldiers are now able to requisition a portion of their own equipment from the X-Com armoury. For more information on this, refer to the X-Com Arms and Munitions guide and Quartermaster's Requisition Form, attached below.


Personnel:
A current listing of active personnel and deployments, including the current recruitment waitlist, is available below.

X-Com Aquatic Operations Division:
X-Com intelligence indicates that previously unremarkable aquatic activity may have extra-terrestrial origin. Because this operation is not equipped to engage in submerged environments, X-Com has spun off an aquatic operational arm as a wholly separate division under Zombies tossed my Salad! - Click here to access Aquatic division logs and reports.

    Special equipment that usually performs a specific purpose

    Stun Rod
    Spoiler:

    Medikit
    Field medical kit capable of treating wounds from high-energy weapons and similar alien technologies. X-Com mission guidelines recommend deploying between 2 and 4 in a standard 8-man squad.


    Explosives

    Grenade: Conventional personal thrown explosive device.
    Smoke Grenade: Thrown device capable of creating large smoke cloud that obstructs vision.
    Alien Grenade: Powerful alien explosive device; available in limited quantities.

    Should any soldier wish to request a change to their equipment, they may do so by submitting a requisition form to Captain Cthulu in maintenance. While you're there, remember to get him to service your rifles. X-Com weaponry is state-of-the-art equipment that needs to be delicately handled and thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis by an expert professional.

    X-Com is a top secret organization.

    It existence is not known to the general public.

    The charter allows for the use of any means necessary to maintain that secrecy.

    I bought the whole X-Com pack on Steam a while ago, but I didn't try anything but the first two games until earlier this week.

    X-Com: Apocalypse seems allright. It has some functionality I wish the first two games had, like equipping soldiers instead of equipping transport crafts and then equipping soldiers before each mission. I prefer the global setting in the first two games to the urban setting in this one, and the early aliens just aren't scary (pink aliens? come on), but it seems like an OK game.

    Awesomesauce. Time to req up some equipment!

    Well, seeing how I signed on as a sharpshooter, I had best go with the standard Laser Rifle as my prime wep. The heavy hitters had best hang on to the stuff that blows holes in the ground.

    My secondary, I think, should be Smoke Grenades. They may not be directly lethal, but when trying to maneuver into a favorable position to take a shot, or when "strategic withdrawal" may be required they could be life savers.

    Finally, for the optional equipment, errm. I know I'm technically not a medic, but, after what happened with NaC, just standing over him, seeing him wounded, and not being able to do anything, well... I guess I'd just feel better if I had a few Medkits on me. Just in case. Sir.

    Primary Weapon: Laser Rifle
    Secondary Weapon/Explosive: Smoke Grenades
    Other Equipment (optional): Medkit

    I saw it on the free tour. It's creepy in an Uncanny Valley kind of way. Also, the eyes seem follow anyone observing it.
