I have no idea why or how Emma went out to face the alien menace with only a medpack and some grenades, reviewing the footage I can clearly see her equipment was reviewed before the engagement but for some reason no action was taken to ensure she had a weapon. Regardless this ridiculous mistake has lead to an important discovery. We can use the alien weaponry. Emma and some of her fellow soldiers were able to pick up and effectively utilise the alien armaments. Which leads me to another, even more important question: Why am I spending so much of my paltry funding making my own?!
For some reason my idiot staff have been using their own initiative to pawn off these valuable weapons to other sources, sure we are somewhat strapped for cash but we only seem to be able to get a fraction of what these weapons are worth. What is worse for some reason I am entirely unable to countermand those orders, we should have been able to stockpile vast quantities of alien arms by now, our soldiers have killed or executed well over 200 of these foul beasts, even if ammunition were scarce the spares in the alien supplies would be enough to outfit a dozen squads. I do not know what is worse, knowing my own forces are acting so foolishly or being unable to stop this farce from continuing despite the loss of life caused by it.
Between this and an Alien Base being located in Western Australia it does not look like a good week for this project.
