From: Rattlesnake, To: Lioness, RE: Prototype Performance
CLASSIFIED: TIER 2 CLEARANCE REQUIRED
The extensive field testing of prototype unit X-12 has proven the value of the project for intelligence purposes and it is my opinion that it is worth the loss in combat performance. The unforeseen relocation has proven to work in our favor. Object Omicron was revealed because of it. That it remained hidden for so long on an inhabited world shows the need to expand our operations in the Terminus Systems to ensure threat awareness without reliance on the STG. The prototypes remain our best option. I suggest running X-12 through close encounter trials as a next step.
