It was a two part mission. Objective 1, Capture Alien Crab Walker by direct hack, locate and capture command node, or as a last resort destroy. O2: Hack and prepare satelite microwave uplink station for use in second half of mission. O3: Destroy alien Psi amp to reduce effectiveness of powerful Psionics.
Mission2 Objective Destroy Alien Heavies: Omega Protocal in effect, Nuclear weapons authorized as last resort.
O1A Destroy the QuadroPod preferably with the crab walker as it has the only weapons that can punch through the shields of the Quadro. Draw fire of Quadro with all other assets to protect crab. .
O1b In Parallel to 1A setup an ambush using heavy ordinance and teleport pads, then drop the shield for 1 turn with the microwave dish. You will only get one turn before it fries the dish.
O1c. As a last resort get troops within the shield radius (6") and underneath where the armor is weakest..... good luck with that one.
