Decoded MessageEdit

This message was double encrypted. First, a Vigenère cipher was used. The keyword for this message was the text found in lxxvii.docx (LIMA XRAY XRAY VICTOR INDIA INDIA) from the TX.rar drop. After the BRAVO decryption, the message contained groups of three letters, which had to be decoded using the code book compiled from the 5 different *.rar file drops. After decoding, the message reads:

NotesEdit

  • The letters between square brackets were added in order for the message to make sense. This was due to the limit of words available in the codebook.
  • Can someone confirm the "OAR MAN FISH..." part? Confirmed
    • could be meant to be "oarsman"
  • We requested more EN chatter, to help us break new enemy cipher here.
