XCOM 2 mods bring The Phantom Pain to the turn-based alien invasion

I inadvertently returned to XCOM 2 last week, after discovering this hilarious Red Dwarf voice pack mod (opens in new tab). The work of prolific creator ∑3245 (opens in new tab) has since caught my eye—whose player-made Metal Gear-inspired additions to the turn-based alien invasion are great.

Over the last several weeks, ∑3245 has added Scout Uniforms (opens in new tab), Enforcer and Battle Armours (opens in new tab), a selection of Sneaking Suits (opens in new tab), Snake's iconic bandana and eyepatch, and Haven Trooper armours (opens in new tab)—as first featured in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, and the PS3's MGS 4: Guns of the Patriots and Metal Gear Online. 

The above support XCOM 2's War of the Chosen expansion, and look something like this:

Combine ∑3245's work with Jblade35's Venom Snake and Quiet Voice Pack (opens in new tab)—which adds 124 lines "for most actions in the game"—and turn The Phantom Pain into a turn-based strategy affair.
