Commander WE NEED YOUR HELP
Aliens invaded three days ago and they have been slaughtering us, but now we might have information to fight them.
Many soldiers have died to bring you this information use it well,
The aliens also called mimics are large quadrupeds formed out of ductile metal with long feelers they use to strike at their foes. They can also launch high speed explosive projectiles, that are fast enough to even target aircraft. They are damage resistant but can be killed with high caliber bullets. They can also burrow for concealment and surprise. They are organic EMP did not effect them.
This is not the worst - We believe they can reset time.
During the initial landing in eastern Europe we launched several sets of nuclear strikes against them and each time before we even launched the missiles they all burrowed underground, or by impossible luck managed to intercept the missiles.
There is a subspecies called alphas that we believe reset time when they die
Many troops record fighting alphas but no one has ever successfully killed one.
It appears that time is reset the most recent dawn, and no farther
The Russians laid a massive ambush out around the city of Kursk, with 1/4th of the worlds artillery and thousands of tanks. The mimics blissfully continued walking into the trap for two days until the dawn of the day when the trap was going to be sprung. At dawn, they suddenly turned tail and fled out of the kill zone then they counter-attacked. Since they only reacted on the last day it implies they could not have reset multiple days back and destroyed our ambush even worse.
We believe the number of resets is limited
The mimics have made some mistakes that they could have fixed by resetting the day, this makes us think that they can only reset the day so many times, and so have to let some small mistakes stand.
The armies of the world have united to fight this foe, a fact we would have thought impossible just days ago. China and Russia are preparing defensive works around the City of Stalingrad, Joint NATO forces are preparing defenses along the Marine, the CMEEF (combined Middle Eastern Expeditionary force) is advancing into northern Italy. We have used about 1/5 of our nuclear arsenal, both NATO and Russian lost almost 1/3 of their forces during the initial Mimic landing in Eastern Europe.
We have troops but how do we fight an army that can reset time???
PS one Scientist suggested injecting Alpha blood into a human to give him the ability to reset the day but we have never been able to kill one, and it also sounds like a crazy idea anyway.
