        No idea... maybe increase the "luck" and defense of your suits
if engaged in combat? In fact I did not even know there were Minovski
particle ships in the game. What does its icon look like?

        I am not sure if they actually tell you "You have X turns to
accomplish this operation" but I did see the cut scene for the commencement
of the North America landing/invasion. BTW, do you still have the URL
where I can download the software that allows you to view the cutscenes on
a PC? I just bought a new PC and would like to give it another try.

        I saw the first two but not the capture of Odessa. :( The feds
had the number advantage and their technological development seems like it
was put on a speeded-up cycle. I never expected plain vanilla GMs to be
THIS powerful!
