Greetings!

I don't think alien weaponary should be sold at all, for in reality it would cause lot's of problems. Such as criminal, terrorism and wars increase. Can you imagine the number of plasma pistols sold through out playing UFO? I think it's enough to arm US army!!

I think that solution to this problem would be in using engineers to dismantle these "toys", so we would sell parts only!

Cheers!

Why would X-Corps care about who the weapons go to. As long as they don't get used on X-Corps, they wouldn't care. :)
I'm only partially inactive. :P I can still be reached at cpl.facehugger@gmail.com, and via PM. Preferably the former.

Well, not really, BUT. I don't think I would be selling most advanced weaponary to "just someone", even if these are countries' gouvernments, Wich are apparently subject to alien infiltration missions!!!

Actually, I got a better idea! When we are eventually finished, we would have material for XENOCIDE II, wich would actually be GENOCIDE, as there would be no aliens left, people on earth would continue their little wargames with new "toys"!!!

:idea: :LOL: B)

P.S. Besides, in my opinion aliens would have no trouble signing "peace treaty" with some countries using only fin-amp (financial-amplifier) There's not much good old patriotism left, especially not in these highly situated polititians...

Well X-com never sold the weapons to other people they sold it to country governments who would do what they want witht he weapons, wether arm thir armies with it or study it for use in the future (wich if you played TFTD you know they didn't do :D) And about that US army equipping thing, I think they would be happy to be even MORE powerful
