- "So I got a truck full of fresh ammo, and they want me to deliver it to the Riad Complex? What, are you kidding me? That's outside of town, by that sinkhole!
This is something the Gears should be doing, not a civilian... Hell, I should at least have an escort on this mission! Sometimes I wonder if the COG actually wants to win this war.
And don't even get me started on the Imulsion prices these days! Energy barons and the COG are lucky we're in a war. Bet they'd have a revolt on their hands, otherwise."

The Riad Complex was a COG military base located outside of Landown. It was near a large Locust sinkhole, and was resupplied by civilian truck drivers, who often complained about the lack of an escort.
