    Not going there to let them take the lead, also if I remember right, their tanks were pretty effective?

    Wait, Exalt weaponry is made in Germany, I uh suggest you go elsewhere! We're not quite ready yet. RED LIGHT!

    DIRECTOR'S LOG
    MARCH 9TH, 2015


    The Lab completed work today on what it's calling 'Meld': the gel substance we've found stowed in ET canisters. Some kind of bio-mechanical paste...

    They think we could use it to graft volunteers onto robotic heavy weapons platforms and / or develop radical bio-molecular enhancements. XCOM management is still debating both the merits and ethics of these potential applications; I'm on the fence, but engineering has shown me schematics of the weapons platform they intend to fabricate, and I have to say that I'm impressed.

    panic-1.jpg

    DIRECTOR'S LOG
    MARCH 9TH, 2015

    The delegates from Egypt are pissed. I don't blame them; Cairo got mauled, and HQ-PRIME had the floor mopped with it's strike team when they arrived.

    They just need to hang-in there a little longer, while we get on our feet.


    Our UFO interdiction capabilities are shallow and need improving; fir and foremost, that means being able to see them when they slow down enough to be vulnerable to attack. I told engineering to commission as many high atmosphere early warning systems as they could.

    buy-1.jpg

    We had low-cost lesson at the beginning of the month, at Delta-3's expense. The girl's fine - just laid-up for a few days while the bruising and minor burns heal - and i don't want to take low cost lessons for granted, so i also had engineering commission some field emergency medical equipment. We don't need to lose experienced personnel to injuries that could've been treated.

    buy-2.jpg

    There's no polite way to say it: the incentive program sucks. I take it as a personal insult that i am not trusted with XCOM's resources, and worse, I have to go pleading to some bottom feeding asshole to get more support.

    It is what it is, though, and we do need the support. i had to inform the lab today that our ET specimens were all shipped-out to increase our 'budget'.

    They were not happy.

    The decision was made today: volunteers withstanding, XCOM's combat assets will now include Meld enhanced personnel. I gave the green light for engineering to begin construction of what they're calling a 'cybernetics lab' this morning.

    Germany's catalogue of wars since the Romans
    The only points that really matter are from about 1800 to present day. Germany wasn't really a country until then.
    Helped defeat Napoleon, Unification Wars, Held its own against Britain, France and Russia in both World Wars and only losing because America has so got damn much stuff.

    Have you seen the storage area? XCOM apparently bought an infinite amount of trilbies for the troops.

    So the next time you hear the Commander moan about how he's short on funds, just remember that's only because he blew all of XCOM's cash on hats.
