Terror mission debriefing
« on: March 13, 2019, 12:07:28 pm »
Things I learned during my latest (third) terror mission (April 1 on veteran):

1, terror missions can happen at daytime
1 a, it's not much help
2, gas stations don't chain-react and explode all at once
3, despite a large portion of my troops carrying HE (rocket launcher, 2 heavy cannons and a rocket HWP)
3 a, captured a floater live
3 b, managed to miss to the point of one floater needing 5 heavy cannon shots to go down
3 c, didn't blow up a single civilian (in fact I saved 2) despite leveling a building on purpose
4, HWPs are fire-and-forget, as in they never survive a single mission
4 a, it managed to run out of rockets, so it did it's job
5, personal armor is nothing to write home about
6, I'm emotionally attached to my soldiers, despite not knowing most of their names (too many countries of origin)

Lessons learned after the latest south african terror mission:
Snakemen can be handled with laser weapons
Chrysalids can NOT be handled with:
1, laser weapons
2, human grenades
3, HC-HE
4, large rockets

Research started on plasma rifles (most abundant weapon atm), meanwhile, team equipped with laser tank and single AC-HE. Plans to supplement Skyranger with hi-ex and HC/AC-AP if proven effective.
