Mission X2-S2F (Nicholas & Aces Wilds)
The Dropships Xin and Virtue will be deploying within the hour as all final preparations were being done. Just before the Mercenaries could board the ships, one of the Technical officers would approach the mercenary group, "The 10 Protomechs could not fit on one Dropship since we are hauling a full load of fighters just in case a battle commences in orbit. We will ask you to divide your team as is and let your group decide which ship they will ride in. Happy Hunting" He gave a salute before he himself went inside Virtue.

*Each Dropship will drop at different locations. Since it is a quick drop, Pilots will not be able to confirm Drop Zones until they are already there.

"Split groups? Joy of joys..."

Nicholas turned to the others with a heavy sigh. "So, considering you're pretty much all a unit of your own, which spot does this outsider fill?"

"Off the top of my head, I'd suggest you join me and Adrian as the leader in one group while the others go under Tomoe. What do you guys think of that?" Ike said going through the possibilities in his head.

Nicholas blanched at the offer without bothering to hide it. "I think it's safer if someone else do the leading. Better I leave my suicidal tactical decisions to involve only myself."

"I'm sorry I meant Adrian be the leader, he seems to have it in him. No offense but I've seen him in action but not you."

There was clear relief as Nicholas misinterpreted the words, and he chuckled softly before shaking his head and replying.

"Nah, no offense taken. If I wanted to play leader I wouldn't have dropped out of officer school and taken up this job of working for myself."

Making sure everyone knows the plan, at least in theory if not in practice.

”Dropping separately adds a level of complexity to our approach but it is still very likely that we can both enter the water system and approach under it's provided cover, if you can not do so try to draw away as many mobile enemies as possible and the other group will stay underwater until they get to the first turret.”

James asks "Boss, you are running unit 1 and Andrea is in charge of unit 2. Where do you want the rest of us?"
