HoC X-Com Enemy Unknown – on the Seventh day

True tragedy strikes the time

No, not losing Lt. Morice 'Ghost' Revek, that wasn't a tragedy, is was more of an acceptable loss for a positive outcome. It was a tough mission that I went through a few times. Getting through it and only losing Lt. Revek made me happy. Well relatively. What kind of commander would I be if I left the good Lieutenant's corpse lying there on the ground while I went to pour myself a drink. Wait aminute, that is exactly what happened. Never mind.

So Lt. Morice 'Ghost' Revek was killed in action. On a successful mission. We all know that 'Operation Crystal Jester' was a tough mission as even Colonel Claudia 'Hardcore' Schafer came back injured.

But a tragedy? No. The true tragedy came later on with a horrific realization, Colonel Storm 'Nix' Blade is the only team sniper left! That, my friends. that is a true tragedy.

Just as the team was about to sink into a horrible despair brought about by this realization command sent us our reward for our successful mission:

Captain Gren 'Specter' Del, a new sniper sent to HoC X-Com command by our friends in India.

Thank you India, your timing was impeccable. Thanks for saving us from Colonel Blade.

I would like to report that Captain Del has gone on two successful missions (so far) and has five alien kills.

On a separate note, Research is developing on a Plasma Sniper Rifle which we hope will help Colonel Blade with his issues.

Bonus picture: The latest HoC X-Com team to be deployed. Check out the all new Skeleton Suits. Body armour with built in grappling hooks. Engineering and Operations managed to make enough for the entire team.
