Unit Inspection: Allies Hero Action Jackson

The Allies Hero Major Clayborne Jackson  has the raw physical strength, power, and badassery to wield two 60W Phaser Guns which even with the power assist from the XM-18-22 armor most soldiers have some difficultly handling just one.  Action Jackson exemplifies the, “Lead from the Front.” creed of the British Army.  He will not order his men to do anything he wouldn’t attempt himself.  It is this demonstration of courage and honor than bred loyalty from those Major Jackson leads and fame from the British media who have dubbed him: “Action Jackson.”
