I've ramended the reference to the Crater Cobras being deployed on Zurich prior to their Guerrero deployment to Nanking because while the Mercenaries Supplemental/Supplemental Update entries for Burr's Black Cobras state that the Black Cobra regiment was on Zurich, I can't find a source that states that the 789th Striker were on Zurich as well. I've also altered the statement regarding the terrorists who sabotaged the DropShips to reflect the claim in Field Manual: Mercenaries Revised that it was believed the terrorists were Zhanzeng de Guang; I've not got a copy of the source that states it was actually Davion-loyalist terrorists, so can someone add the appropriate citation for that please?

Shattered Sphere, which I've added, but main source is of course Bred for War.Cyc 08:44, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
Thank you... I'll have a nose around in Shattered Sphere to see if there are references for some of the other units I've been looking at that were in service to the FWL during Guerrero. I don't own Bred for War though, so I'll let someone else add updates from that! Do you happen to know if any of the Jihad-era books after Blake Ascending mention the Cobras? Although Mercenaries Supplemental Updates indicates that the Cobras deployed to Luthien in 3071, they aren't mentioned in the list of participating units in Jihad Turning Points: Luthien as far as I can see, and I haven't picked up Field Report: DCMS yet to see if they were still alive/in service to the Combine post-Jihad.

Ah, never thought about those. Quick search in JHS:3072, JHS:3076 and JHS:Terra return no hits, but FR:DCMS indicates their alive.Cyc 09:57, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
Thank you again. I'm glad to hear that the Cobras are still alive in 3079, although I see their morale is still rated as questionable... it makes you wonder what they've got to do to earn the trust of the general population! It's also reminded me I should go and check Field Manual: Draconis Combine to see if they appear there.
