The only words I have for this mission are the ones that I gasped during the mission...OMG!
You said you wanted to try stuff that had never been done....I thought this one was truly unique. Nicely done!

I liked the style of this mission too since the key for success is an accurate scouting of the battlefield and choosing what to save and what not (Sun Tzu anyone? ), but a bit too easy due to enemies acting relentlessy, they go for the dropships and become cannon fodder from behind for me and my allies - no scratches for my 2 pilots and tons of salvage.
