Jagged Alliance and Deadly Games

"Captain Bob Adams retired from the Air Force at forty-one. He was a decorated F-18 pilot with extensive combat experience. Bored, and eager for action, he joined A.I.M. a year ago, and has made the transformation to field combat rather easily." - A.I.M. Dossier

Jagged Alliance 2

"Despite making ground as a combat soldier, decorated Air Force Pilot Bob Adams never quite shook his passion for flying. Therefore, it came as no surprise when Captain Adams retired from the organization, a year ago, to take a position with a major American airline. Tragically, while flying on a regional, short-hopper route, wind shear caused him to lose control of his aircraft. He crashed and died just outside of Phoenix this past July." - Alumni Gallery
