Subject: Re: Crate MS840

I’m not losing sleep over one damn crate. We’ve left far more expensive armament over there in the past, including vehicles. Why am I being bothering with this? Don’t tell me someone’s getting cold feet over budgeting? Too goddamn late for penny-pinching now—they’ve just approved billions for those ridiculous YR-44 fighter jets. Who gives two shits about a lousy crate?

Some bastard’s running around Kurtow with decades’ old surplus, including an outdated KR-10 revolver, courtesy of the government. Big deal. Too bad the crate wasn’t loaded with a nuke. If those maniacs in Kurtow finally wiped each other out, maybe a politician with some balls would tear down the whole vermin infested district and finally rebuild.
