The Major had watched the entire simulation play out between the three forces: the Sons of Hati Platoon, Iron Vipers Platoon, and a third force, coined “Green Team.” He had personally hoped that dropping a Chimera into the game would cause his men to panic, if only to gauge their reactions.
Perhaps a little disappointingly, they saw his move a mile away. As a commander, seeing his men react calmly was a good thing. But as a tactician, seeing his ploy fail rather miserably was a blow to his pride. At least he did some damage, although opting for the suicide route with is last unit left a funny taste in his mouth. Sure, it cleared the field of two VERY large threats, Corporal Douk and Private Trauma, and it denied control of the hill to Red Team.
Tactically, it was a very sound move to do. However, it still didn’t make him feel like he cheated someone – namely Douk, who was just recently brought back into active service.
Walker shook his head, and took a puff from his cigar; staring at this blasted holo-screen and writing reports was not something he enjoyed doing. Running a hand through his receding hair line, a thought crossed his mind. Perhaps a little break from writing reports about his little “X-men” team was in order.
The Major stood up, and grabbed his hat, pistol, and rifle. Off to the shooting range.
