Stealthsuit Team Soft Rain
Commander Stillsea has a problem.
is, as his name implies, steady, quiet, and deep. This is not the
case with his two team members, both part of his bonded family group,
who essentially play the part of Larry and Moe from the Three
Stooges. Where StillSea is serious, his team mates are even yet
excited about how the jet packs in their suits allow them to leap and
hop like rabbits on crack. At least they can focus in battle. A bit, anyway.

team can deliver seven attacks in one turn, one of them Melta.
This team can do some damage.

to take out pesky armored vehicles that my other units cannot easily
touch. Melta Weapons are made for that purpose. That is another
reason I took a Hard-Wired Target Lock; even if the team is otherwise
engaged, StillSea can target something else more useful, while his
teammates deal with whatever immediate threat is upon them.
