landmark in the history of humans. Two events occurred that would shape
the future of mankind. First, scientists discovered the chemical
nature of genes, which would later give birth to the field of genetic
engineering. Then the President of the United States soon allowed the funding
of Biomedical & Scientific research to continue.
It's now the year 2021. The Human Genome
Project has blossomed into a branch of science all its own. Ranging from super
soldiers to Frankenstein babies. Not even
two years after the fourth World War, another threat now rears its head. Once
again the super powers of Russia and the United States fight for supremacy,
while their allies duke it out to remain on the giants' good sides.
Things are different
this time around. Development in Biomedical research has allowed today's
militaries to create soldiers who are faster and stronger. Thanks to a
process called neural re-socialization, which wipes out a felon's mind and
rebuilds it to be a machine of the military, soldiers are more vicious and
bloodthirsty than ever.

since set up forward command posts at Sacramento and Seattle."

this time. We're in over our heads here. Command sent a small group
of marines out to push back enemy forces in the Nevada desert. They
dumped us out here with a handful of grenades, two rocket launchers, and only
enough ammo to keep us fighting for a few hours. What they forgot to mention
was that the enemy was armed with SCUD launchers, G6 Howitzers, and
anti-personnel turrets. Not to mention they've got two Biotanks stationed
at the frontlines.
the day some genius decided to take human DNA and fuse it with an already
formidable weapon. The end result was something like an armored plated
chicken with fifty millimeter cannons welded on. In a densely covered
forest these things weren't too tough, but in the open flatlands of the Nevada
desert we were sitting ducks.

hovels waiting for the inevitable.

reason it raises back up and races towards the second Reaper. As we watch the
