Dominating Stratos Central Airlock:
Sorry, this was on my phone so I had to zoom out a lot, and the details are a bit hard to see. But the main point here is all 4 TPs have the flame cannon upgrade. This is about 2-3 turns before my squad gathered at the extraction point.
An interesting point of note, besides the obvious promethium lakes, is that all 3 functional airlock doors are shut. Basically, my initial squad went west and took over the TP there, and then started heading south to hit the secondary objective. After they're almost directly south of the central TP, I had collected enough SP to deploy another templar, so I sent in another soldier from the central TP, shut the western airlock door, and had him join the rest of the squad as they moved counterclockwise, picking up all 3 secondary objectives and clearing everything in their path.
Notice also the giant splotch of xeno blood on the west TP: this was actually not the responsibility of the current templars standing there; it was caused by a massive promethium lake that my hydra lit around that TP when I first captured it. It was recaptured by the xeno afterwards, at a great cost to them. The fire had extinguished since, but here, my oversized templar squad had just come back around from the north TP to recapture this one.
Final result: 9 veterans, 42 turns, 146 kills, 3/3 secondary objectives. Death to the xenos!
