I enjoyed the mission greatly, as usual. Lots of experimental mech configs coming at you, to keep you looking over your shoulder. I slowly salvaged my way up to a full 4 lances (16 mechs) before I took on the main event: the Overlord and its HUGE number of bodyguards. Even with 16 Aces, it was a rather hairy fight.
But worry not. Iron Earth Ridge is now safely back in allied hands.
