Despite taking several combat wounds, Menace One-Five successfully secured the AO around the disabled Advent convoy, providing XCOM with a much needed cache of supplies and tech. Reports from the battlefield abounded of giant, snakelike aliens with tremendous tactical abilities, which made an autopsy of these aliens a priority. Suspicions of the tactics employed by these “Vipers” were quickly confirmed – these beings were once the “Thin Men” of the invasion war.
The overall scope of XCOM’s operations grows, with additional scientific breakthroughs and resistance network resources being leveraged each passing day. A Black Market has been contacted in the Canadian frontier, and a new prototype “Arc Blade” has been manufactured for use by the Rangers. Supplies and recruits are procured before the journey to make contact with resistance elements in the New Mexico sector. However, before contact is established, the Spokesman transmits intel about a VIP target looking to defect to the resistance, and requesting an extraction from Advent’s territory.
