Topic: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

As the ship entered the atmosphere the sounds of thrusters cut off, leaving a sudden vacuum of sound. That is up until the ramp lowered and the roaring of rushing air filled the confines. The pre-dawn light was just hitting the far horizons, but the drop had been timed perfectly. It was the ideal time for a surprise assault, Begin Morning Nautical Twilight or BMNT. This was the time when the light and absence of it played tricks with the eyes, and even the best troopers were drowsy. This was ideal for the stealthy drops that a Bronco team preferred.

Once the ramp hit full extension, the red light in the doorway flashed three times and then switched to a green accompanied by a deep, bell tone.

Play time was over.

=GO GO GO, move it guys!= Lukas shouted making sure everyone was out dropping out of the Ship. He noticed the color changing on his arms, as the team in front of him took formation. Somehow this looked more professional than it had every right to be after the briefing.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Tavarian jumped out of the ship and was the first one out."WOOO."he then turned on his Jetpack on and flew straight down. he was going at his top speed.40 Kilometers away from ground. decrease your speed NOW! he then slowed to a safe 15 mph. when he hit the ground (feet first though)it was a jarring experience. it was always like that for him.[remind me to ask Dr.Faust about making a better version of these shock pads.]sure thing birdman.then he took out his trident and harpoon gun. he then shoved the trident into the gun. he looked up and saw everyone floating down in their parachutes.-all-I bet you guys wished you had a Jetpack like me. HAHAHAHA!-when Angel landed he saw her lack actual weapons.[Justin, send Angel the blueprints for my trident.]sure thing birdman........message sent.he walked up to her and handed her his harpoon gun-Angel- this is phoenix.I'm letting you use this. take good care of it.-
-Lumberjack-since were the distraction team and I'm going to need your permission to do this. I'm going to fly through the air and make some noise.-

Destiny is a freight train rolling along on a set course that only the conductor knows. When we get to the railroad crossing in our car, we can choose to stop and wait for the train to pass us by, or try to pull out in front of it and beat that bad boy across. That choice is our free will. If it's our destiny to be hit by the train, we will be hit by the train. The only thing we can change is how the train turns us into a hamburger.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Ooc: I should point out, this is a high altitude chute drop, not a lower the ramp and walk out deployment.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Angel follows the group out of the hatch.  The wheeling weightlessness of freefall sweeps over her as she falls, and she smiles.  At times like this, with the sky streaming past her head, she wishes she'd been selected as an Apollo pilot herself.

At the last safe moment, she deploys her chute and comes down for a heavy landing.  Phoenix's message comes across as she is righting herself, and she looks over to him as he hands her the weapon, which she takes.

"Phoenix."

==Thank you.  I will try not to lose it.==

"Armael, give me atmospheric details."

As he replies, Angel moves to take a position in the centre of the group, following the others' lead for now.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Gideon readied himself on the edge of the ramp.  Dante, put a bullseye on anyone who isn't the Princess or a Bronco, and alert me whenever an enemy is facing me or an ally.

He jumped after setting his visor to maximum zoom, watching the area near the objective as he fell.  He counted three bright red bullseyes that were slightly apart from the rest, moving slowly away from where the Bronco team was landing-- a Scorpio patrol that hadn't spotted them yet.  He let himself fall until Dante begged him to release the parachute.  Had it deployed any later, Gideon's hard impact could have turned into a severe injury that couldn't be just walked off.  Immediately after shedding the parachute, he scrambled up a nearby boulder, pulled his sniper rifle and put his sights on a distant bullseye in the patrol, which was barely visible over the ridges.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Tavarian decided to keep the parachute for princess in case he was shot down while taking her to the ship. as he waited for an answer from Lumberjack, he heard some chatter coming from the ridge line Gideon was aiming at.(one of the capabilities of the apollo suit was to be able to hear enemies as long as the suit was in front of it and the enemy was in range.)-All-enemy 12:00- he then took out his rifle and prepared to fight.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Tavarian starts to run at the patrol of people. when he that one is supposed to stay alive. -Lumberjack-man your no fun-[Justin, I want you to color code the enemies for me. label princess as pink, tanks as green,air units as black, troops as red, infantry as blue, mech suits as orange, light support as yellow, mounted guns, missiles as purple, and broncos as grey]alright just give me a few seconds...done.-all- lets get this party started.- he then flew 1 meter above the ground. with his 2 rifles in hand, he lays suppressing fire on the closest target. while firing he yelled as loud as he could.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

As soon as the order was given, four shots rang out from Gideon's rifle in quick succession. The farthest bullseye vanished from his HUD.

Dante's voice came through.All four shots impacted before he hit the ground. That's far from your record though.

Gideon smirked.  I'm just getting started.

Dante became urgent. Two enemies facing Tavarian. It seems he's rushing at them.

Working on instinct, Gideon swung his rifle around and desperately tried to steady his crosshairs on an enemy rifle.  Not only did he have to make sure Phoenix didn't take a bullet, he had to do it without killing the rest of the patrol.  Dant, what's going on with the rifle's auto-focus?  It's taking too long to adjust.

The terrain is messing with the range finder function. I'm trying to calibrate it.  Be patient, and have some faith in the rest of the team.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

"So much for working as a unit with Phoenix bringing up the rear..." Angel mutters to herself and Armael as she starts to move cautiously from cover to cover towards the fight.

"Prep the boost, we may need the speed if he's not as quick as he thinks."

"Lumberjack"

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Tavarian sees spots of blood coming from the closest targets legs. he then hears four loud shots in a row as the farthest target slumps to the ground.-team- patrol in critical condition. how about we disengage against this one and let him run along to his friends?-he then sees the last patrol member grab the the one he shot in the legs and drag him toward their base. the  target shooting as he was dragged away." wow. now that's commitment to your team." Tavarian then turned around and resumed formation.-team- lets wait awhile before pressing on.-Angel- I'm not shot am I?-

Well you certainly distracted them, sugar. Looks like everyone received your party invite.

As the first couple of Scorpios dropped, enemy icons started popping up left and right, with a large amount moving out from the reported cave complex. The remaining Scorps in contact started spraying heavy amounts of ammunition towards Lumberjack's team, especially in the direction Phoenix. Fortunately for him, he had closed too fast and avoided the initial bursts.

Phoenix's LOS intercept started to go active as enemy communications filled his ears, garbled due to his relatively low altitude.
"..the airborne suit! It can't maneuver this close to the ground."
"Use your auto-targeting!"
"Damn, two Hades? Unit 552 to Manticores, we need your help! The Hades are the reason you are here."

Faust hesitantly follows behind the rest of the team a they jumped out of the aircraft. He had never skydived before, but trusted his suit to perform magnificently. Before he jumped the Orpheus' shoulder compartment opened and a large, black-chitinous wasp flew towards the battlefield at all haste. In the dim light, it was hard to distinguish it's opalescent sheen as it flew over and worked surveillance over the landscape below.

"Air surveillance deployed. Pay attention to your HUDS. Enemies, teammates, civilians and such are highlighted as the small legend states. Once the ground drone locates princess, I will highlight her pink...UGH!! " The last part of the message was Faust landing harder than expected and his suit scraping across the hard landscape.

Ground surveillance deployed.


The wasp rapidly began processing the fast moving images of what appeared to the Scorpio 'Roc' class airborne attack vehicles closing in, current distance out 20km and dropping.  On the ground, the Manticore Heavy Assault Vehicles, Variant-A began to step out of caverns near the main complex, on heavily armored bipedal 'legs'. The Variant-B's with their low profile tank treads stayed local to the main complex, almost as a last defensive line.

For now, Angel keeps her head down as she moves up, trying to find a position not too far from any of the team.  She throws a couple of smoke grenades out around herself, and waits for either the inevitable damage alerts when someone else on the team finally runs out of luck, or an enemy straying into her rather restricted line of sight.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Gideon leaped down from his boulder and crouched into cover. The scope's autofocus seemed to be dialing in correctly now.  Dante must have found a fix.Dante, can you prioritize targets?

Dante hummed as he calculated enemy numbers, armaments, and threat levels. As he hummed, Gideon took a shot whenever his crosshairs came to the center of an enemy bullseye. Enemy air units need to be taken out ASAP.  A well-placed armor-piercing round would ground them.  Highlighting weak spots now.

The bullseyes in the air above the battle split into two, showing where Gideon would need to place a bullet to shred the Roc's wing. Graci, Dante.

Gideon tilted his rifle upwards so that his crosshairs would line up with the flight path of an incoming Roc.  He lined up with the center of the blue bullseye on its wing and fired.

As Gideon pulled the trigger, the Roc he was targeting made a sudden banking turn and dove for a strafing run. His round passed just over the upper aileron.

As the first few rounds went out, dirt and rocks began to flare up until they tracked into the group. A couple of the red icons on Lumberjack’s HUD dropped, but there was no noticeable drop off of enemy.

Suddenly, rapid explosions filled the area. One of the blasts sent shrapnel up, peppering both Sworty and Joanie, rocking them both back on their heels. Phoenix, being grounded and unable to use his maneuverability as he should, was knocked flat from the same explosion. Large rents appeared in Justen’s shell. Angel’s and Skullette’s HUD’s populated isolated, but non-threatening damage. Phoenix on the other hand had multiple areas of critical damage, as well as concussion symptoms.

Angel swears within the confines of her helmet, and breaks cover to make towards Phoenix.

"All."

==Moving in to Phoenix.  Please try and silence whatever just did that.==

"Armael, get the nanobots ready.  Prioritise armour repairs first - let's keep him alive then pick him up."

As soon as she is close enough to release the nanobots, Angel does so, even as she glances around for some cover to get Phoenix behind while she works.
