This started in disaster and went downhill from there. It was a night time raid on a convoy. Moving from cover we were able to take up strategic cover. All members moved to overwatch and our sniper Hong Blinn II lined the opening shot. What she has a 91% chance of making on the range she missed by a mile on the field. The rest of the team took their opening opportunity shots but only a handful of bullets connected.
The enemy has really taken it up a notch. They seem better armored, weaponed, oh and now there are these snake aliens with new and exotic ways of killing our troops.
This was our first mission with an increased squad size. This seemed to lead to more losses not not victories. Our rookie Cross Stone was able to pick off one more Advent Trooper before running to the evac site to abort.
