    As of today I've made 666 edits to the Wiki. I wasn't actually watching the number, it just popped up when I stepped in to write this blog, so I'm mentioning it.

    So far I believe I've covered most of the Mission Sets the game has to offer. I know there's at least one more I'm missing, something involving the kidnapping of a fighter pilot, but damn this game is hard to convince to randomly pick the one you want to play. :)

    In any case, I still haven't had the chance to make any of the Electronics stuff yet, but I'm hoping to do so in the near future. Still, covering all the Criminal Plots was a big and slow process and now it's basically over.

    I'm hoping to start making articles about Elec…

    Hi. My name is Headrock and I started this Wiki. I've been meaning to write something to explain the reasons behind this, and what I'm hoping to achieve, but I've been so preoccupied with actually adding content that it just hasn't happened yet. But hey, you gotta start somewhere.

    I'm making this Wiki because someone had to. Covert Action is a very, very old game, but it is nonetheless one of the games I've always been returning to every once in a while, not just for "old times' sake", but because I genuinely think it is one of the most interesting games I've ever played.

    But why does it need a Wiki? To me, there are two reasons:

    1. There is so little information about this game left anywhere. That in itself warrants pooling together what we do …
