After you get all this cool alien technology, like heavy plasmas and such, do you think it would be possible to have your troops dress up as aliens, and then attack a country? (Like say...one that's signed a pact already), framing the aliens for a crime they didn't commit?

I mean, if your guys wear grey costumes, and carry heavy plasmas, who exactly is going to assume that it was your resident X-Corps squad that attacked country xxxxx? :P

Just a thought that my devious mind came up with. That and I'd really like to use it on countries that are reducing funding. "You know...Reducing funding to us is a really bad idea. It means we can't protect you as well. For instance, you see that UFO over there? I'm afraid we don't have enough money to afford ammunition to shoot it down. Do you notice those rather large and unproportioned greys that are slaughtering your people? Sorry..."

The greys of course being X-Corps troops in powersuits... :D

Meh, just a thought. :P

Like the raids in Apoc?, not a bad idea, I'd love to see in v1+, it'd be an additional way of obtaining more funds, and weapons.

Yes, particularly if a country have ffallen under the alien's influence... Perhaps some kind of raid to gather the evidence, then threaten to make it public...

There is another which states that this has already happened.

Instead of using as extortion, use disguises for these purposes.

1) Raiding without getting X-COM in trouble.
2) Infiltrating alien sites and bases.
