Story post ahead, if you're not interested in the story please ignore this post.


Mission Target (1)

Leonard: I don't remember the Eastern Horde living so far into the desert...
They must be desperate for resources.
Malcolm: My ghillie suit is also useless in there conditions.
Luckily I brought my ultralight gear.
Leonard: I brought a pack of Zongos and a Slammer Sammer.
Malcolm: Energy drinks and a pre-packaged sandwich? Think about the macronutrients.
Leonard: I was hoping Mutoto would leave something lying around for us.
Malcolm: Yeah, a knuckle sandwich.
Leonard: We will find out one way or another, here is the outpost.
Looks like they are bringing out their new tank, the Fire Warden.
Malcolm: You'd think the Fire Warden would be concerned their Command Post is on fire.
I'll take it out, I can outrange it and my bullets will obliterate its heavy armor.


Mission Target (2)

Malcolm: Another desert base. Looks like they are bringing supplies in via rails.
Leonard: Explains how they were able to assemble all these factories.
Malcolm: We should find out what they are planning to make here.
Leonard: Maybe they are building the new tanks. I've also heard of a bigger project.
But everything we have seen about it makes it look impossible to build.
It would need to be... covered in thorium just to make it operate.
Malcolm: ...All the deposits Mutoto has been conquering... They are all thorium producers.
Leonard: We definitely need to see what is in those factories.


Mission Target (3)

Leonard: Those desert bases were just a distraction. Mutoto has been building in the forest.
Malcolm: More factories. Definitely making parts for this overgrown tank.
Leonard: Did we find out what they are calling it?
Malcolm: The Pyromantis. Supposedly based on Mutoto's old personal tank.
Leonard: Let's try to find out how they are assembling these beasts.
Malcolm: It seems like they are assembling all the parts separately.
We need to find out how they are powering them.
Leonard: These bases are starting to pose a problem. We need a longer range unit.
My Hyperions are powerful but they aren't effective from so far away.
Malcolm: I have a plan to fix that. I'll let you know in good time.
Leonard: If you plan on shooting thr Hyperions towards the enemy...
I'll have to clear it through stakeholders.


Mission Target (4)

Luke: How do all the spikes appear in a perfect line like that?
Andrew: ...Because they put them in a line?
Luke: How did they find a dragon so big, and how did they get its teeth out?
Andrew: Are you... a functioning adult? Or a poorly written comic relief?
Luke: I was told to keep my helmet on at all times.
Laura: Luke I am going to ask you to sit this one out, and to stop drinking Zongos.
Andrew: That... explains a lot.
Luke: You should see the other guy...
Andrew: ...Can we help him?
Laura: He just needs... some alone time.


Mission Target (5)

Malcolm: Leonard. I would like to present to you my project. The Janissary.
Leonard: Woah, new snipers!
Malcolm: Rescued from the Sentinels at a young age, they still have some augments.
The power of the Sentinels, harnessed by us, and trained by me.
The ultimate fighting unit. Equipped with solar weaponry to counter thorium.
Leonard: Are you worried you are... replacing yourself?
Malcolm: That's the difference between you and I, Leonard.
Leonard: What's that?
Malcolm: I'm irreplaceable.


Mission Target (6)

Neil: This is Sphinx Commander Red 1, reporting an anomaly.
An Eastern Horde Command Post separated from nearby buildings.
???: Hello Neil, long time no see.
Neil: ...Hello? Can I get you to identify yourself? This is a corpus frequency.
???: Can't do. Just here to give you some important intel on the Eastern Horde.
That building is no command post. It's an assembler. Fully Automated.
Neil: Assembling... what?
???: The Pyromantis. The machine that will let Eastern Horde gain the upper hand.
Take it out quickly, but keep in mind there may be one near completion.
When I have more intel for you, I'll know where to find you.
Soon it will be time for enemies to become friends.
Neil: Hello? Who are you?
Infiltrator: Sphinx Commander Red 1, this is Corpus Command, who are you speaking to?
Neil: Did you not hear a voice on this frequency?
Infiltrator: Sphinx Commander Red 1, this frequency has been unused for years.


If you see any difference from the in-game version is cause I tried to correct it and/or make it sound better as best I could.
(Also why is Laura, a sentinel hero, be in this corpus party xD)

    Laura is taking care of our boy Luke, like the caring mother figure she is, i think, maybe

    also, its because Corpus got all the cool kids

    exactly, we need Leonard's expertise with his boys to bring her drone into submission
