Oz shuts his faceplate, talking over the radio as he moves to take
cover. He gives a mental command through his headjack to enable his
new armor's active camouflage utility. "Scatter and get back to the
ship. Don't get bogged down, keep moving!"

He switches to the encrypted channel his soldiers use. "Sergeant, we
might need supporting fire in a second. Do not engage until my signal;
if the Splugorth spot the ship we might be done."

Prowl check for Oz. He takes -5% on his check from the armor but the
active camo gives -20% to anyone trying to spot him.
