“What’s the first rule of the Shadow Angels?”

A specialist hiding behind Clan lines on Graus must rely on a mysterious extraction team to reach safety. Can the Shadow Angels complete their mission while under fire, or will "Murphy" rear his ugly head yet again?

I found this one to be rather fun.

Quick question to the Author (I don't know thier forum handle) if they are about.

We all know about the Helm and New Dallas cores, is this one referenced anywhere else and we simply missed it or is this a whole new core?

A new core, but nothing of military value on it.....

I enjoyed this one as well.

One question....how did the team get on world?  Part of a merc raid and then stole/took the tools they needed?   That would be an interesting story to read!

Oddly enough it was a Kindle containing a terabyte of Romance novels.

But seriously, I enjoyed the story, thanks!

Cargo DropShip some of the way in, then used the modified MK VII landing craft to land unseen while the cargo DropShip landed at the spaceport and loaded/unloaded cargo normally. Then they rejoined the DropShip on the way out (The Falcon's defenses were so scrambled by Sid, they never connected the two ships on the way out.)

I hope you have more Shadow Angels stories planned?
