  1. Or going back a step..............
  2. No modern military would allow a fighter/interceptor to enter combat with a ground assault element onboard. All your eggs in one basket comes to mind. Specialist roles need specialist craft (even in sci fi!). Would love a Spooky or a Puff The Magic Dragon Gunship to just once really give it to the aliens though!
  3. Nice idea, could also see it leading to other battlefield tactics and research projects/buildings. Imagine the aliens learning of what the humans are doing in salvage and that leads to booby trapped equipment.......which leads to a new EOD trooper.
  4. Congratulations Chris on your daughter, one thing especially to remember at this time........your wife! Take care of both of them, the most precious things in your life. Oh, good news on the game as well
  5. Sorry couldn’t resist it..........if you’re too young look up Captain Scarlet!
  6. Right, pulling the leg here, but make it a SAAB! Non aligned so everyone can complain!
  7. Humans deploy camoflage, aliens switch to thermal vision, humans capture alien research thermal so can build thermal camo, aliens switch to pheromone tracking, humans research etc, etc. Much like how tech is researched already.
  8. I really don’t know where my ‘fear’ came from, I was just stating facts. I’m quite accepting of what Mother Earth does as a natural cycle. Without going into needless detail I’ve always accepted death as a natural part of life and not to be afraid of it. Enough said. Please take care whoever and where ever you are
  9. Because people are dying around the world, countries are going into lockdown and people cannot work. So getting an early access soon means absolutely nothing in the big scheme of things. If things in the world were normal I wouldn’t say anything and your points are possibly valid, but timing as they say is everything. I hope to god (whichever or none that you believe in) that Chris and his workmates are safe at home with their families not worrying about an early release date or anything else that is non important. In my household we’re locked down for at least 14 weeks, ah the joys of being in an at risk group! and my wife's Uncle is in hospital with the virus, with no family able to visit him. I freely admit I don’t know your situation or anything else but I do hope you stay safe and well.
  10. And........the world has changed. Posts like the above in the present situation just show people have far too much time on their hands. Think of the situation firms are in at present, most are just hanging on by their fingernails. Please people show a bit of thought before posting. And yes I too backed this game. I’m not worried about this, there are far too many other things to think about. And again congratulations to Chris for his new arrival, that’s what’s important.
  11. Congratulations Chris, it does bring back memories, one thing about being a grandfather is being able to give them back! Be prepared for no sleep for 2 years!
  12. Chris........if you are reading this...........a sub launched fighter and large tracked box like vehicles pleade
  13. I must admit I always look at these type of games with the UFO S.H.A.D.O tv series in mind. Earth defence in a secret base, shoot down a UFO and send out the special teams to deal with it. If only we could have a Skydiver sub!
