Untar and Terra group
On June 28, 2021, Battle State Games tweeted a teaser for their upcoming patch and wipe on June 30, 2021. (seen below)
This Teaser image contains a QR code, which when scanned will give you the Latin phrase
"Vires in Scientia. Scientia est fortist. Et Oculus Spectants Deus nobis."
When translated to English this phrase is "Strength in the Science. Knowledge is very strong. The eye of God is watching us."
"Virtus in Scientia" or "Strength in Science" is the Motto/Slogan of Terragroup labs (see above). This phrase being on an Untar document, although nothing is confirmed in game or by BSG themselves, indicates Terragroup may be ran by Cultists has direct control or influence over Untar. Terragroup may be using Untar soldiers as a replacement for the absent USEC operatives, as in the USEC 2 voicelines we find out that all USEC Operatives have been seemingly abandoned.
