The following file was recovered from the computer of an abandoned HOUND left at a strip mall in Tarakia's capital city of Xeres. It is believed to be the first day's deployment log of a former Rafzakael mercenary who joined forces with Tarakia. His or her name is unknown.

I've been practicing screaming racial slurs and I think I am ready to go toe to toe with the other HOUND pilots in the Neroimus war. Welly, welly, wells, time to go off to war.
Let's just fire up the system. Ehhhhhhhhhhh, I could train some more, but it's time to f%$% up some people.
BEE-BOO-BA-BA-BEEP uplink mutha-%$%$ing activated. Hells yeah, look out Morskoj. Lock your doors Sal Kar! A tornado of pain is comin' and its got quad machineguns BRRRRAAAT! I love it when them things blaze up like that.

Okay, this is good, a nice two on two battle. Nothing big, nothing fancy. We've got the map here with the ba-

It's not doing anything. Oh, wait, here we go, but now I'm by myself. Forget this, I'll find a different battle.
