REMs gone Wild

Huānyíng, dignified Brother. I am sorry that I have troubling news that requires your immediate attention. Two days ago, a YuJing Lhost facility was under attack by a so far unknown enemy, resulting in the total destruction of the underground complex. What is not known by the public is that our Society was experimenting with modified Lhosts equipped with illegal social enhancers for brainwashing. In fact, the facility was destroyed by our agents to cover our tracks.
It seems, however, that only the intruders were able to retrieve one of our superior Lhosts, but two remotes of the facility were malfunctioning and left the building before its destruction, possibly with records of what was going on.  
This is a chance and a risk, so we must act swiftly. The authorities must not access the remotes memory, as our participation in the incident could become public. For us however, the remotes could bring information on who attacked the facility and fled with our Lhost. Assemble a team, find the remotes and bring them to us. Finally, it is possible that our adversary has the same agenda, so be prepared for resistance. If you encounter the enemy, salvage some of their communication devices so we can bring some light into this disturbing chain of events.
Hǎo yùn, dignified Brother.

Turn 1:
When Hsien Agent Chao left the dropship, he saw schemes of hostile movement on the other side of the plaza, already going into firing position. Looking on the digital area map, he decided that the drone in the back alley on the right flank had to be retrieved first.
Since approaching the alley from the plaza seemed like a good way to get shot in the process, Chao ordered his two Zahnying companions to follow him into the nightclub in front of them, which back entrance led directly into the alley with the target. The few visitors already fled the area when the armed transporter arrived, but the holodancer at the pole was still dancing, creating a bizarre contrast to the heavily armed agents, walking carefully through the hall.
“Dignified Agent”, Chao heard one of his companions on his commlink, “contact ahead. My Sensor detected hostile in the back room, first floor. If we move any further, we will enter his cyberwarfare-range.”
Chao looked around and smiled cruelly. Using the elevator, the agents entered the gallery on the far side of the room, and made visual contact to the trooper in the next room while staying outside of the hacking range.  
The camo of the rogue Naga agent in the next room offered no protection against Chao and his Multispectral Visor and the hostile went down with a couple of shock rounds in his chest.
From the back room Chao peeked outside, where a whole squad of hostiles were taking firing positions. However, none of them was prepared for an assault from this angle, so the Agent changed his plan. 
“Agents prepare for engaging, we will clear the street before closing in on the target.”
The team positioned itself at the windows at leaned out simultaneously, guns blazing. When the gunfiring ended a couple of seconds later, five enemy troopers and drones were taken out of action. The team quickly advanced into the street.
“Chao to Team Tiger, back alley secured, occupy the plaza. Repeat, occupy the plaza.”
“Tiger Sniper here, affirmative….”AARGH!”
“This is Tiger Observer, Sniper is down, repeat, Sniper is down! Dignified Agent, we lost visual on the enemy TAG, it might be heading into the alley!” 

“Confirmed.” Agents, secure the street, we get compa…”
His words were abrupted by heavy gunfire, as the hostile TAG perforated a car on the street with its HMG, shredding the Agent behind it in the process. 
The second agent tried to jump into cover while the TAG approached, but it was too late, and he also went down, being hit by several heavy-calibre rounds. As the last survivor of the Team, Chao turned around and brought his weapon at the ready. When the TAG broke through the debris on the street however, the agent’s rifle was not able to stop the machine. Hit by more than a dozen rounds, the agent went down just in front of the target drone, leaving the TAG alone standing upright in a suddenly silent street full of fire, wrecks and corpses.   
Turn 2
Lt. Chungsao flinched away from the window as bullets hit the wall next to him. His team was in a dire situation. With the haris team on the right flank gone and the sniper on the roof dead, the remaining forces were pinned down by a deadly crossfire between the tikbalang in the backalley and the hostile sniper on the other side of the plaza. The ISS still had superior numbers, but desperately lacked long-ranged firepower, and from the frequent explosions Chungsao could tell that the advancing Kuang Shi were taken out at an alarming rate. Running out of options, he restored order in the broken fireteam. "Tiger one to striketeam, the backalley is lost, repeat, backalley is lost. Concentrate on the remote in the building ahead!"

"Tiger two, reform link and fog the plaza in!" With a muffled popping, several grenades were shot out of his building, covering wide areas of the plaza in thick smoke. "Dr. Unterholz, the enemy is blind, get the remote, MOVE!". The rogue panoceanian scientist (with sophotect-abilities) ran in zigzag routes to the building, opened the door, and connected her interface with the malfunctioning drone. Within seconds, she overrode the protocols, bringing the remote under her control.

In an astonishing speed, both made it back into the ISS's deployment zone before the smoke dispersed or the mercenaries could react.

On the right flank, the severely injured zhanying agent Lee partly regained consciousness due to automatic nanostimuly from his armor. He began to drag himself forward, but froze when he heard the heavy footsteps of the hostile TAG nearby. As he peaked around the corner, he could only watch as a hostile mercenary entered the alley under cover from the TAG and fixed the target-remote without interference. While the reprogrammed drone quickly moved in the direction the mercs came from, the trooper walked deeper into the alley. Lee could not see the troopeer, bur realised that this was the last location of dignified Hsien Agent Chen. A spark in his commlinkdisplay confirmed his fears, the enemy had just disconnected and salvaged chens communication device.

A moment later, he heard LT. Chensaos voice over commlink. "One remote recovered, the other is lost. All forces retreat immediately." Cursing, the agent slowly crawled back in deeper into the shadows. The loss of a remote and the information leak due to the stolen commlink were a painful defeat for the jade door.
