I'm playing X-COM: Terror From The Deep and aliens have launched a terror attack. I dispatched my Triton, targetting the terror site. It arrives there and then straight away starts coming back. The terror site vanishes from the map a moment later.

What am I doing wrong? How do I sent my Triton to a terror site? Are there some special requirements that I haven't met yet?

If you need more information to answer this, just tell me what else you need :)

The only requirements to get to a terror site is that the ship needs to be crewed, and you need to send it there. I would guess that if your triton isn't landing, it must not have a crew.

Alternatives could be that it doesn't have the gas to get there, or something related.

Bingo. I somehow managed to take all the crew off the ship! :) Thanks for the speedy response! – Cosmic Flame Jan 7 '12 at 18:36
Triton has enough gas to get anywhere on Earth. And back. – Sergio Tulentsev May 11 '15 at 16:34
