Dropzone: Breaching Drill

The lack of light dropships for Resistance really limits the mobility of infantry. If an objective is found, I don’t really want to dust off with a whole Lifthawk. With a drill deployed midfield, the Jackson APC can drop off the infantry underground.

What Dropzone energy I have right now is directed towards Resistance, but I’ll have something fun to turn to when I decide to switch back to UCM.
