Glad to see that this mod is still in development. I played the very first version, and I am happy with the progress. I will have to play it again at some point.

Yeah! We are working on side projects along this mod to further increase the lore of the project

Hint: A prequel and a sequel wink wink  ;)

If I have one to name one thing that does not fit, I'd say the tanks. Laser weapons and Aircraft are all unique to USSR, USA and NATO, only tank stays the same. It kinda bothers me lore-wise, AND, well, T-62 with Lazer sounds better.

Hi, really enjoying this mod of yours.
I have one question, however: what is the deal with terrorists? They can be researched, but have no UFOPedia articles. I specifically (and at high risk to my men) captured live terrorists  hoping they could be interrogated. So I turn to you: who are these terrorists and why am I fighting them?

Well, our plan is to add tanks, yeah! But currently we are focusing on the airplane (and space) features of the mod. The next thematic update will feature armored vehicles and changes to the way tanks are used.

There are some reports after your capture the leaders and commanders. If they aren't appearing, then it's a bug, i'll give it a look anyway.

The main motivation of the terrorist is
Spoiler:
just to wreak havoc all over the world. Initially, they were planned as a bunch of misfits and a hint at 70s terrorist group plus the baddies on Counter Strike and Battlefield Hardline. But later, they became some kind of proxy allied of the aliens, that's why you can be attacked by terrorists using plasma tech
