My name is Vladimir Bodrovski, but I'm more well known as Spectre. I work for Umbrella. Specifically, USS Delta Team. I was once a veteran of the Cold War and a former spy. I am The premier surveillance expert of the USS, and I was transfered to Wolfpack when the upper echelon of Umbrella Management realized my skills could greatly benefit them. My sharpshooting ability makes me the eyes of the Wolfpack.
I’m not really sure what the point of the HALO jump was, but HOLY CRAAAAAP
I’m still trying to figure out the point of the HALO jump as well. The only thing I can think of is that Godzilla can take out any aircraft.
I think it’s a rescue mission, they can’t land anything to evacuate due to the storm and they need to send people down there to survey any possible evac points.
If you see the M.U.T.O. videos there’s further dialogue by the naval commander that states “there are people still alive in the city” hinting that this is a rescue mission, they are not there to engage Godzilla.
I can understand doing HALO jump in to protect the aircrafts and give the troops a chance to get to the ground unnoticed. But the flares and red smoke doesn’t serve any purpose other than making themselves a target.
The flares and smoke are for rally points I believe. I think the destruction and storm has made any sort of spy satellite, drone, or low altitude surveillance impossible. I think they are being sent in to find survivors and establish evacuation points.
It doesn’t seem like Godzilla gives a metric fuck about the city he’s in or the people that happen to inhabit it. Saying the flares make the jumpers a target for Godzilla is like saying bio-luminescence would make a firefly a target for a Tyrannosaurus
That’s the best way to put it.
Everyone quit complaining and bask in the radioactive awesomeness. It will make sense in the movie.
