Situation Report - Desperation[]

Delta Squad managed to escape the Brumak's wrath by the slimmest of margins and drove without pause to the train station. According to Anya, a train carrying the Lightmass Bomb is due to travel past the station any minute. Delta Squad must somehow board the train in motion and program the Lightmass Bomb with the data retrieved from Adam Fenix's secret laboratory. This may be the only opportunity to inflict the type of damage on the Locust Horde that the locust earlier unleashed upon their own civilization.
