    Pity, I thought it was being ironic and his compatriots called him one-nut because he has no balls when dealing with prisoners. =P
    Probably does just cut off a testicle though. Not very impressive, I only need one. James Bond doesn't even need that many functioning testicles!

    "I saw my comrades flesh burnt off, everything was annihilated but their scorched bones. Weapons melted into slag, armor and flesh blended into one terrifying fluid and dripped to the floor, some tried to scream, but as they inhaled it destroyed their throats and lungs, others tried to don gas-masks, only to see the damn things melt in their hands. I was one of the lucky few who get to a jeep in time, the heavier armor was too slow and were rendered immobile within seconds, treads melted, tyres exploded, we were lucky, me and -Removed-. It was just one shell.

    It was just one shell."

    -Private J. Peterson, one of 3 survivors from the first Faction Bio weapon assault. Other 2 survivors died of their wounds after reaching St. Hope's Medical Pavillion for first aid, no treatment was possible at the time. Peterson has since been retired from service.

    First time using GIMP, I'd have put in a biohazard symbol but I had no idea how.

    "Standard shells? Yeah, they're all bark and no bite. Mostly just cheap explosives, they're more fireworks than weapons. They look pretty, but they don't pack a lot. Tell you what though, toss a few in a crowd of Faction and watch 'em break into a panic real quick, always good for a laugh, and it makes it easier for the troops to pick em off."
    -First Sergeant Henry K. Tanker for the 21st armor division.

    "Someone in the scouting regiments figured out how to hotwire a CV (Command Vehicle) so that it uses five times as much fuel. Five times! Makes it handle like a sports car, one-eighty spinouts and everything. Command is furious, and is threatening to hang anyone caught messing with the injector. The problem is, the engine is kaput after about an hour of that kind of workout and there just aren't enough wrecks to salvage spare parts for those babies. Still, whoever figured that trick out can count on me for drinks 'til the end of time. You haven't seen Brandy run until you've seen them watch one of our oversized wagons trample their vehicle factory like it was a pile of grass clippings."

    "Fucked if I know how those bastards do it, but somehow even those behemoth monster trucks they call vehicles can drive straight over our AT mines. I saw it myself once, a friend of mine in the Grenadier corp, he was laying a small 10x10m minefield on the exit of a bridge to help defend the bridge as a choke point. It was a great plan, until one of their Comms came storming along the bridge. The men braced their positions behind the sandbags right, it was quite clear that the enemy commander was on a suicide run, driving straight into at least 20 mines.

    Then he
    drove straight over them.

    You heard me right. His wheels shoved down the big button on the top of the mine, then rolled straight off, and nothing. He drove straight past the minefield, and he'd gathered enough momentum to careen straight through a fuckin' 4ft high 3ft wide sandbag wall and keep going at full speed. The troops got out of the way in time, and we never saw that CV again."

    Why do you think it's so big? The engine in that thing could put a fighter into orbit!

    "I remember back in the days when they had mine inhibitors. A person got assigned a bunch of mines, and if he dropped an extra mine while he still had about 8 deployed, his first mine would blow up! Command are a bit stupid in that case, the reason for it was this one time as a joke, an angry Grenadier dropped about 45 mines around his C.O.'s tent coz the prick wasn't giving out enough rations. Anyway, the C.O. came straight out and, because our C.O.s ain't usually that bright, stepped right on a mine. Now our bright little grenadier friend had set the minefield up in such a large radius that there were mines near the ammunitions tent. And so when the C.O. set off one mine, he set off the rest, and then they sent the ammunitions tent up. But it didn't end there. No no. The Jekotians had planned a raid that night, and had an inside man who was going to sabotage the ammunitions tent, after which they'd storm our camp in the chaos afterwards. We caught the saboteur, shot him in the head, but the Jek's didn't know that. So when the ammunitions tent went up in smoke, they thought it was the order to strike. So not only was the C.O. dead, the camps ammunition destroyed and the rest of the camp on fire, we were under attack by the Jeks, and our smart-arse Grenadier had wasted all the mines we had in the camp.

    Needless to say the camp got overrun. And that's why they had these inhibitors installed, to prevent large numbers of mines from being set. Of course, they didn't think that maybe the green grenadiers would accidentally blow up their minefields when they placed the ninth mine of their standard issue 10. Why do you think the Grenadier corp has been so small nowadays? They all died due to these fuckin' inhibitors.

    Anyway, a few boys got the hang of it and set up small groups of 8 mines then set em off when an enemy vehicle got nearby. It's how we dealt with the Jekotian bastards who figured out a way to drive over our fuckin' mines. Then HQ, bright fuckers they are, decided the inhibitors were a bad idea, so now they just make the mines inactive after your 8th mine.

    Doesn't make the slightest bit of sense. But what does these days?"
