October 6th, 2005

The briefing in the hanger at Crandall had been simple. There's a small group of islands about half way between the two main continents that's currently in Cylon hands. Given it's location it has been used for decades as an airbase and also a prime location for shipping. In short, it's a strategic gold mine. Now, for the past two nights there have been air missions to take out Cylon air defenses and a command bunker so now it's time for the marines to do their thing. The main force heading out will be hitting the airfield and docks, but a squad from the 3/8th have a different task, there's talk of skinjobs and in particular a One, being present. Since the Orion has already had dealings with a One, thats their objective, seek and destroy. It can not be allowed to escape.
Intelligence believes that it's retreated to a villa up in the hills since the offensives began making a purely ground based attack difficult and so for this one, the Gentlemen Ghosts are along as well. The plan is for a roof-top landing and rapid incursion, aiming to catch anyone or anything who might be inside by surprise. Anything that fights back, kill it, with extreem prejudice. Anyone or anything tha tries to approach the villa to re-enforce it, kill them too.
Now night has fallen, the laiden rapors are speeding towards their targets with armed and armoured marines in the back, passing the time however they will before it's time to unless the fury of the Gods once more.

Tucked lanky limbs under him, strapped into the Raptor exactly where he was instructed to by the Parajumpers, the tan Brassard is gone. In the standard hard cover black, Leightner, Corpsman focused on the space in front of him. Pressure just blows past him without effect. He looks about, having checked everything once, and not fooling with the equipment in boredom.

Ygraine has her eyes on DRADIS watching for enemy approaches while Dogmeat does his thing. "First mission as a Gentleman Ghost, ya coulda done worse, Captain." Ygraine remarks amenably to her pilot. "We got most if not all of th'island defenses sorted beforehand so hopfully nothin's gonna bite us in th'ass."

While they're in the air, Kostas' religious medallions are woven through her fingers, moved through in a meditative way until they get closer to their destination—at that they're zippered into one of the secure utility pouches, and a faint smile replaces the near thousand-yard-stare. "Huntin' time, boys and girls," she declares in her raspy voice. "No need ta pull punches, but mind yer ammo."

Zhen is in her seat and got her mind in the game, quiet and attentive. Her console is looked at as if it is the most interesting thing ever and nothing else is able to draw her eyes from it. The only time she speaks is to give the pilot sitreps, not even waiting for Bennett to ask for them.

PO2 James Kalum sits in the Raptor with Bennet and Zhen, next to the hatch, his hand resting lightly on the door gun. His helmet is strapped on, his medical gear is stuffed under the set next to him, and his rifle is already slung around his body. For the moment his eyes are closed, and the PJ appears to be resting for the most part — waiting for what is to come.

Lleufer is quiet, decked out in his full combat kit. The Marine sits with a few others as they are flown in, glancing down the line at the various faces to read if they are anxious, joking, resting, or what. He's relaxed himself, everything double checked. Lleu tugs the map out of his pocket to glance over it one more time and looks up the line to holler up if the pilot can hear him, "So which roof you dropping us through?" Did Captain Amos make a final call on that, "Do we have a means to see heat signatures on this Raptor? See if there is a warm body location to aim for if we have a One up there?"

Rahab is consumate professional. Well, kinda. There's some kind of music playing in his helmet. Granted, not enough that he can't hear radio chatter, and it's kept internalized to hiself unless Ygraine really wants to hear. "Think I've sat in sickbay long enough." he comments. After being picked off on Picon once the Orion arrived, he had spent some time recouperating from malnutrition. "Wanted to be there last night, but apparently, there was something about trying to find me a flightsuit that fit properly."

Finishing checking over his equipment, Fischer leans back in his seat for a few moments, one hand reaching for something hidden underneath his armor again. "For you…" he mutters, under his breath, before he glances between the others briefly now. Keeping silent as he does.

Amos made it out of medical in time and is now sat quietly in his battle gear in the back of Captain St Clair's raptor. He's checked his equipment a couple of times but now he just waits for that jolt that'll tell him they've touch down and the call to go.

Like the others, Jena is fastened into place next to the hatch and door gun. After a lot of practicing with it, her new weapon is even on a strap around her, safety on. Her pack is also right there on her person, as always. As the ECO talks, she glances over, finding solace in those words. Her attention is brought back to Leightner. "The ride you were wanting. Good luck down there."

Mallas has just returned to duty as well, and there's nothing like a few days in Sick Bay to catch up on your rack time. He looks rested and ready, relieved to be back in his combat gear. And he's managed to hang on to his improvised necklace of Centurion fingers-parts too. He boards the bus, stows his LMG, and slumps into one of the jump seats in the back. He's unusually quiet during the flight, with hardly a word of complaint, staring at the far wall of the raptor and fingering his necklace of trophies.

Leightner looks to Jena and smiles, nodding. "Wish we'd been able ta train. Feel like a monkey strapped in here." He looks to his stowed P90, grinning to her, just about the gun, really. He's jazzed, but containing it. Ready. Focused.

"One of my brothers used t'sing this song all th'time til it drove my mama crazy." says Ygraine cheerfully, flashing a smile over her shoulder at Leightner and Jena. "'Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage'." It's not that she isn't focused, she's just…well. This is not her first rodeo. Her gaze goes back to DRADIS as a matter of course.

Bennett has been fairly quiet on the ride down, and not just due to the order for radio silence. Stealth drops under cover of darkness are not something the Ghosts are regularly tasked with, and she appears to be in her 'zone' at the moment as her fingers skim over the controls and the raptor is maneuvered in with a minimum of power. "We will be targeting the living area," she indicates after a moment to Lleufer's question, without looking over. The question about heat signatures, she leaves to her ECO.

<FS3> Rahab rolls Piloting: Good Success.
<FS3> Rahab rolls Alertness: Great Success.
<FS3> Bennett rolls Piloting: Success.
<FS3> Bennett rolls Alertness: Good Success.

Taking the smile just the way it was meant, Jena tugs on the strap of her P90 in return, definitely pleased about having it, giving the Corpsman a smile in return. "Me too, but thanks for the help with the rifle." Catching the song from the ECO, the PO laughs. "It's a good song!"

"Take he was a bad singer then." Rahab comments, humming along lightly. The Raptor jostles slightly, buffeting against the air current, the Captain then compensating just as easily, as if it were a natural reaction. "I don't even know how that song got stuck on my playlist. Must've been…oh, what was his name." Well practiced and fluid motions, even if it's at night. He might not be able to see much outside, but he lets his HUD be his eyes for him. "You know, going to be a shame to blue up such a nice looking home."

Leightner grins to Jena, nodding in reply, and looking to the cockpit, falling quiet. Unobtrusive. The pilots are.. piloting. That's as much as he knows in a Raptor. Shut up, and look for anyone bleeding.

"Thanks, Captain!" Sergeant Ynyr calls back to Bennett. Lleu looks down to the rest, Amos of course already knows what's going on. So he passes it onto Mallas and Knox, "Living room drop." He taps on his map to make sure they know the orientation. Then he has a last look at it himself to commit details to memory before he folds it up and tucks it back into a pocket.

Fischer closes his eyes, leaning back in his seat as he waits for them to reach their destination. No need to use too much energy before it's time, right?

"Naw, Arty's a pretty good singer, actually." Ygraine replies. "It's just that's th'only line he ever sang from that damn song." She laughs at that, still keeping her eye out.

Amos has the map about memorised by now, and just gives a faint nod in confirmation of the living room landing. Taking a moment to check his watch he figures they must be approaching the island now and takes a moment to check his gun once more before noting to those around him, "alright Gentlemen, this is where it could start to get rough."

Mallas blinks when Lleufer says something to him, then gives the Sergeant a quick nod and looks around the cabin at the others. He's with Captain Bullseye, the Skinny, and that Sergeant who decked an officer. Great. "How'd I get stuck on the special bus anyway?" he mutters to himself. But at least they're getting close to the LZ. He can bother with checking his gear now.

"That'd probably drive me up a wall too." the pilot agrees lightly. "Alright, not too far out now." Rahab notes to the back. Their Raptor is coming low against the water, making it difficult to differenciate their Raptor from the grount, hiding the ship behind whatever ground cover they happen to pass by. So, he's been doing this for awhile. "So long as Milkshake here doesn't start singing, we should be alright till touchdown."

Zhen turns a deaf ear to the Marines' voices, needing to keep herself focused. The only thing she hears besides whatever sounds the DRADIS might make is the steady sound of her breathing.

Leightner moves once the signal is given to prep weapons. He slides the strap of his P90 around his shoulders, eyes in middle distance. He checks the weapon, including the action on the Mag ejection, and seems satisfied. Then the settles back, focused once more. He's psyching, getting ready.

"Hey! I'm a pretty good singer too!" But Ygraine doesn't attempt to prove the point, instead asking, "How soon we gonna drop th'luggage?" Meaning the marines, of course.

As the raptors approach the LZ there is the telltale signs of activity in the area. A few careless lights can be spotted round the edges of windows and such like. The Marines can be thnakful of their pilot's skills for so far, there is no incoming fire and the ride is smooth. Approaching from the north west the landing zone looks clear and very inviting.

Jena keeps her own weapon back for now, the only one she should be using is the door gun, if necessary. Prepared to open the hatch for the team of Marines, she remains at the ready, listening to the flow of conversation between pilot and ECO.

Lleufer quietly sees to making sure his rifle is ready but mostly he did all his checks right before boarding. As they wing in low for the final approach, Ynyr opens his small canteen for a sip before resecuring it. A breath mint is found to chew on, crunch, crunch and he waits, watchful and listening.

Kostas runs down her own personal checklist of prepping weapons, gear, herself—her lips pursing just a little as they approach without signs of resistance thus far. Still, not much to see in her position in the bird, so the Ensign remains quiet, glancing about to see if anyone else needs help, otherwise just chillin'. The quieter, the more suspicious.

"Eyes open for unfriendlies," Bennett speaks over her shoulder to Zhen. "We will be skids down in thirty seconds. Rainbow will pop the access panel, and I will need one of you-" Meaning the marines. "-to be ready with those laser cutters the second it's off." If she's nervous, it isn't showing in her voice as she calmly brings the bird in on its final glide approach to the compound.

Kalum remains quiet in the back for most of the approach, but when it sounds like they are on final approach, he reaches over to ready the heavy machine gun. It clicks loudly, and Kalum prepares to stand and swing it into position once the Marines are out of Bennett's Raptor. "For all we all ought to have thought, but have not thought. For all we ought have said, but have not said. For all we ought to have done, but have not done. I pray thee Lords for forgiveness." The Pararescue Jumper says quietly, and pulls down the goggles on his helmet to cover his face.

"Right, but we don't need to give our position away with your warbling, ElTee." Rahab muses, grin visable on the exposed portion of his helmet. "We got movement on the ground." he comments, tilting his head to look out the side window on the cockpit. "Looks like we haven't been made yet. So you all back there, if you're not ready, I'd suggest you get that way quick. Because we're going down in a minute. About to make our dust-down."

Amos notions Lleufer towards the cutters, after all, he's in charge of the whole thing, Knox is JTAC and Mallas has a great big gun to lay down covering fire if needed.

Leightner flexes his fingers, slowly at the minute call. His fingers slowly settle back around his weapon.

They've already done their radio set checks. Lleufer pulls his goggles down and checks his gas mask is handy, his gas cannisters if they try to capture that One alive. Sergeant Ynyr gives Amos a nod and unclips to leave his seat. He goes forward to ready the lazer cutter, power that puppy up and make sure all is go.

"Aye, Cap'n," Kostas replies easily to the pilot. "Let th' good times roll, Marines." One minute and counting is more comforting than a longer wait, apparently, for this one.

When the pilot calls out 'thirty seconds', Mallas frees his Zasta light machinegun from the rack by his seat and slaps the ready magazine in. He props the weapon upright between his knees, hand on the charging handle, ready to chamber the first round as soon as he's in the door. The Private cranes his neck, trying to see out of the front of the raptor, eyes bright, one booted foot tapping against the floor to let off nervous energy.

Not a peep from the compound. Somewhere to the south and east, a rustling of wind in the trees, but it's all but pitch dark out here; even the villa's floodlights have been switched off. Landing is going to be.. tricky.

<FS3> Bennett rolls Piloting: Success.
<FS3> Rahab rolls Piloting: Great Success.

Zhen nods and looks at the pilot, quickly. "Right, Butch." She falls quiet again but her hands are now busy. She's got to get herself unstrapped in a hurry once they hit dirt so she can help the Marines with that panel. Not a plan she likes as she prefers the relative safety of the Raptor but eh. A gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do to lend their aid… or something.

And with a sudden thrum of engines spooling up to maneuver in that last thirty feet before solid rooftop, Bennett's raptor surges nose-up and touches down.. a little less gracefully than might be hoped. "We're down, let's move," she tells her passengers crisply, already going for her sidearm under her seat.

And with touchdown complete Amos is out of his seat and pilling out of the Raptor onto the roof. Giving Lleufer space to cut he heads for the nearest edge and oes prone, covering an areas of garden with his rifle.

As soon as they touch down, Jena is up and opening the hatch, stepping back for the Marines to jump out and do their jobs. "Take care of yourselves out there," she tells them while waiting for them to depart.

Leightner hits the release on his straps before touchdown and sits through the initial opening of the Raptor doors. The logic is like this. If the doors open and massive gunfire rips through the cabin. He's HERE to pull people out of the fire and close the door. He piles out late in the extraction, Medic near the rear. As he moves, he sweeps up his weapon covering an area. He's pretty quiet for himself. Big future in second story work.

As soon as the Raptor's side door is opened, Lleufer steps up with the 'lazer' mount and starts to rip through the roof. Steel reinforced? No sweat, meet plasma cutter! Charges blowing a door wouldn't be any faster than the few seconds it takes for the Marines to blaze a line around in the roof. As soon as it is cut enough, or all the way around if it's stubborn, it should fall right through to the floor beneath with a WHUMP! Surprise, surprise! Who needs doors and bullet proof windows to enter?

"Score." Rahab utters. "And the crowd goes wild." when gets the Raptor in the proper position. "Alright, it's your guys time to shine. Get it down. Have fun out there."

"Let's move!" Kos calls out cheerfully, as she too steps up to the other cutter mount, to join Lleu in the roof evisceration. Mo lazer mo bettah, right? Double time is always bettter. As soon as that panel falls though, she's rolling out.

Once the hatch is opened Zhen looks over her shoulder, waiting for all the Marines to get out before she closes it again. There's a slight wave of impatience as she shoos them off of her bird, her antsiness born from nerves over the current situation.

As the hatch on the Raptor opens, and the Marines pile out, Kalum swings the door gun into position once they are out of the Raptor. He hooks himself to the Raptor door with a safety hook, and then stares out into the gloom — waiting for gunfire or targets.

Mallas scrambles to his feet as soon as 'go' is called, following the stack of Marines out the door of the bus. He quickly moves a few meters away and crouches, flipping his night vision goggles down as his LMG comes up to sweep the darkened rooftop.

<FS3> Jena rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Ygraine rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Rahab rolls Alertness: Success.
<FS3> Bennett rolls Alertness: Good Success.

Fischer nods as soon as he hears Kostas, moving out as soon as it's time to do so. Looking around carefully once more.

<FS3> Zhen rolls Alertness: Great Success.
<FS3> Kalum rolls Alertness: Success.

As soon as the Marines are cleared out, Jena hooks up and takes the door gunner position, secured as she watches the Marines scatter and disappear if they do. She peers out at the area, prepared to let loose the gunfire if or when needed.

"Hey, Cruz." Ygraine's tone is conversational. "You catch somethin' at two o'clock? Thought I saw some shine."

"Aw frak. We got inbound enemy contacts. One is coming in from the east path, one from the south. Looks like they might be converging in the northwest." Rainbow's voice is steady but by the fraking gods she sure isn't feeling calm. If her nerves get any worse she'll be living up to her callsign again.

As the marines create their hole in the roof and drop down, it quickly becomes apparent that there are two hostiles in the room below. Nice easy to spot shiney centurions. From the looks of things they'd been guarding the doorway out into the patio but now, with a a chnk of ceiling falling down they're turning to incestigate, leveling their guns as they do so.

Kalum leans out the door slightly, and peers into the bushes towards the North-East, but in the gloom isn't quite sure exactly what the targets are. The Petty Officer keeps his eyes on the bushes. "Possible targets to the North-east." The Petty Officer says to Bennett and Zhen.

Bennett remains at her console as the marines finish cutting and move out. "Let's close it up, Rainbow, in case.." Her head turns a fraction as if she's glimpsed something out the window, and she frowns slightly at Zhen's update. "I hope you brought along some night vision goggles," she tells Kalum. "Think you can get a sight on one of them? I don't want to dustoff until and unless we have to."

"I see it, Milkshake." Immediately the weapon is swung in that direction, no safety of any sort on and she's prepared to shoot if necessary. Despite the threat, Jena has a calm air about her. Almost steely.

"Go! Go!" Ynyr shouts to his fellow Marines as soon as the ceiling hole falls through. He swings the lazer cutter aside to lock it back out of the way and taking up his own rifle, he turns and makes a leap down through the hole! Look ma, no hands! Hit that floor with a roll to get out from under and come back up on one knee. Two shinies are what Ynyr sees and he takes a bead on once of them at once!

(OOC Note: Here flight group and Marines separate)

Since she's the last to hop off her bird, Kostas moves to cover the others until she catches up. She doesn't drop down yet, but crouches down to help keep an eye out for those that do, firing a burst at the first canner in her sight.

Leightner sneakity alongs all nice and there are centurions. He's almost glad to see them. He's missed shooting at them. He draws down on them. Just aim for the glowing eye. He'll be going down in a second.

Following suit with dropping down, Fischer brings his weapon up and fires as soon as he's gotten to the ground, before going through the process of finding some cover now.

Mallas moves up to the hole Lleufer and Amos jumped through, but when he sees the Centurions down there he decides to fire rather than jump. He braces the barrel of the LMG against the edge of the gap and squeezes the trigger, traversing across the two Centurions.

It's fair to say that the two centurions never stood a chance, not with a full squad's worth of firepower aimed directly at them. It's also air to say that anyother residents of the villa are now aware that something is up. Just incase two raptors landing on the roof hadn't been enough. There's a load shattering of glass as bullets destroy the doors out onto the terrace and the distinct sounds of shouting starting to ring out from along the covered walkway in the south east corner of the room.

Leightner is firing down into the hole as his bullets ping off the Centurion, and suddenly a flash of spark and puff of fabric are left and Leightner is off his feet, shot. Well, " ARMOR on Chest stops the attack! " isn't fun. He's checking himself. Muttering in Virgonese, but quiet.. Gasping, and a lot of it.

There's no need for a JTAC's gear in a place this side, so that radio pack wasn't even brought. Coop is just a regular Marine today. Dropping through the hole, he moves and fires a burst at the Centurion by the door and one of the rounds hits something vital in the head. Boom. "Clear." He's already moving to cover the door.

Amos grunts as the centurion's bullet slams into his armour, although the lack of corresponding pain he takes as a good sign. As both the canners go down he trusts the call from Knox and sarts to move towards the doorway, gesturing for the others to do the same.

<COMBAT> Cent3 has joined the combat as a soldier on team 2. (Amos)
<COMBAT> Cent4 has joined the combat as a soldier on team 2. (Amos)

Kostas gives Mallas a Dog-sisterly slap on the helmet once he's done firing. "I'm coverin' ya, Private. In th' hole!" She waits for everyone else to get down, before she takes one last look around the roof and then pops down herself, moving quickly to take up a sweeping position in the room below. Her gaze moves towards the sound of the shouts and she preps herself to fire again.

<COMBAT> Six1 has joined the combat as a soldier on team 2. (Amos)

Leightner rises, and moves to drop through the hole into the living room, expression drawn, in the center of the group, posture bent and alert. He listens, looking everywhere at once or as close as he can.

The room predictably lights up with bullets as weapons rip open every which way. It's only /two/ Centurions and really, with a bunch of gun-ho Marines? They don't stand a canner's ass chance of toasting anything. And there goes the glass partition! Ynyr at once looks that way to see if he can spot any enemies out there, then shouts to his Captain, "Terrace and Walkway!" Lleufer motions sharply towards each and goes with Knox at Amos's direction to force the door open that lets into the walkway so they have options.

Mallas's rakes the two Centurions, tracers knifing down from on high. A few bullets finding their mark, but most just end up flaying someone's lovely living room. Glass shatters and furniture stuffing flies. He's starting to sweep for more targets when the CO's whack on his helmet gets him moving. "Aye aye, Q.B." And down he goes. As soon as he's in the room below, Mallas swings his weapon towards the opening leading out to the terrance, checking for targets. Hey look, more Cylons?

<COMBAT> Cent4 has joined the combat as a Soldier on team 2. (Amos)
<COMBAT> Cent3 has joined the combat as a Soldier on team 2. (Amos)

Making his way over towards the door as the others starts moving as well, Fischer looks around a bit carefully as he does. Getting ready for whatever they'll face next now.

There's no further sign of life from out onthe terrace, safe for a scattering of birds and the sound of the Raptors engaging foes outside the immediate perimeter. Out of the kitchen though a familiar looking skinjob sticks it's head, then pulls it back at the sign of the marines and opens fire with a rifle instead. At teh same time, along the walkway from the dining pavillion come another pair of centurions.

Seeing nothing on the terrace, Mallas swings towards the door. Oh, here's where the party is. He flops prone and rests the Zasta on its bipod, bracing down on the stock with his off hand. The LMG roars again, spitting AP rounds through the door and down the walkway.

The exchange of gunfire echos in the room and out into the night sky, Lords know how many bullets are exchanged along tha stretch of walkway but only one centurion goes down. THe other continues to move towards the marines, firing as it does so, while the six takes aim at that fraker with the machine gun.

Coop see's his mirror down the hall and then it fires at him. One of the rounds cuts a long gash across his right cheek and takes part of his earlobe. Its nasty and immediately bleeds like shit everywhere, but its worse than it looks. Right? "ASSHOLE!" he barks back. He fires a fast burst in the direction of the Six and then takes a break from the door. "Medic. Godsfrakkingdamnit."

Leightner snaps around as the bullet storm focuses. P90 chattering and bringing sparks from the leg. And then the pain starts being delt. Someone sings out his name and he fires, moving, looking, and then sjumps after Knox and Lleufer. leaping. GRENADE okay Treat Knox then.

Kostas keeps her sight on her target and fires as it continues to move forward, sending another burst towards the advancing canner. "Hang tight, Sarge he got ya," she shouts. She glances over just in time to see the pin pulled by Lleufer. "Sa-weet!"

Mallas rattles off a burst, then eases off the trigger to settle his aim. And over the top of his sights he sees Knox … or rather another Knox, aiming a rifle right at him from out of the kitchen. He doesn't roll out of the way, he just responds in kind. With a scream of pure hatred, the Private focuses on the Six alone and pulls the trigger. "Ares take you, frakker!"

Gods damn frakk'n Six! Standing /right/ beside Knox, Lleufer takes bullets and he's knocked back a good step to hit the wall hard. Yeah, that hurts as things pierce his armour and he sees Knox out of the corner of his eye take one in the /face/. Lleu sees that other Six duck back behind cover into the kitchen and Ynyr drops his rifle to hang by the strap while he pulls a frag, "FRAG OUT!" He may not be the best toss in the world but the Sergeant is going to try to nail that enemy Six's ass if he can!

Amos smiles a little as he spots Lleufer go for a grenade, then turns and focuses his fire down the hallway towards the appraoching centurion. No point wasting bullets on a thing thats about to get fragged after all. In a brief lull in the firing he calls, "Once these to are down we're moving forward, prepare to cover and sweep the hallways as we go."

Firing off another burst, Fischer ducks behind something. Smiling as no bullets hit him, he moves to fire once more.

Grenades, they're lovely aren't there. Sadly, the Six is behind a cupboard when it lands, so the marines likely can't see the look of surprise on it's face moments before it's blown to mist and chunks. The shot up centurion is still on it's feet, most of the bullets seeming to only be scraping it's armour rather than doing much damage but it's still starting to look shakey. Those looking further down the corridor though will spot another metal monster rounding the corner from the area the map indicates is the garage.

<COMBAT> Cent5 has joined the combat as a Soldier on team 2. (Amos)

Leightner snaps his weapon down, One hand going to the strap the other passing over his medkit. His hands coming togeather, rubbing over each other as a whif of alcohol passes and gloves seem to just be on his hands now. He drops over Knox, lips tightly purse. as he snaps open a capsule spreading it over the raw side of Knox's head before leaning in to peel the mans ear off his shoulder, and in a careful application of his gelled Septi clense, he snaps the ear into a container and places a pressure bandage to the side of the head. Knox better get used to hearing in Mono, mate. At least for now.

And there she blows! Ynyr needs to practice a lot more hours throwing grenades for top accurracy but it's not bad, does the trick well enough. The kitchen explodes in messy fragments and is going to need some remodling attention. Messy Marines! There's a quick glance as Knox falls back, too much blood in his face to see and needing a pressure bandage to stop it - but the Corpsman is on it. Lleufer changes back to his rifle and finding what cover he might in the exploded kitchen, he tries for a shot at one of the Centurions, cautious incase that Six isn't completely down.

Fischer just keeps on firing, shaking his head a little bit as he ducks behind the cover every now and then. His expression quite stony at the moment, as he shakes his head a bit.

Mallas trades fire with the Six, and grins in feral satisfaction as he sees his own rounds smacking into the skinjob. Then Lleufer's grenade knocks the skinny down and there's no more movement. Something hit Mallas in the shoulder, right on the vest. It hurt, but he knows what a real wound feels like by now, and that wasn't it. And there's still Cylons to kill! He shifts his sights on to the remaining Centurion and opens up again.

Leightner moves to Lleufer, looking him over now.. oh yes. new gloves. He works in combat

Amos is starting to get impatient with the way they've become bogged down, but with the damaged centurion almost upon them there is little he can do. Spotting the new arrival he calls, "We put this one down then move, we can't hang about Gentlemen or our prey may escape."

Lleufer is not used to a Corpsman showing up to check him, especially while in full combat. It's distracting, "I'm all right!" Ynyr shouts, too busy taking aim down the hallway to pay much attention though some of his combat armour at his chest is shattered and lightly bleeding.

The gunfire is relentless, in both directions, and it's fair to say that after this war is over there's going ot need to be some serious renovation work done to this place. Unless who ever takes it over likes bulletholes in the walls of course. BOth Centurions go down and go down hard, letting the marines push forward their advance. Just in time too it seems for at the far end of the corridor there is movement.Not centurions by the looks of it, but humans, or human-forms anyway, a Six and another, an older, more grizzled looking chap.

Leightner rises slightly checking the Headwound on Lleufer as the man continues to fire. He does manage to get the skin back in place and a fast patch on the back of his head down near the neck. Hand and chest wounds needs to not be shooting a gun. Kinda the rules. It's messy.

With the Cenution near them going down, these two new forms take a moment to look up the hallway, then reach for guns themselves, moving to take cover at either side of the hallway as they fire on the marines.

"We got ta move!" is Kostas' bellowed order once the nearest centurion goes down. "Can't let th' Big Shit get away!" She heard Amos' older, relays it the old school style. Her eyes focus on the older looking dude with his Knoxy-like companion. She shoulders her rifle and then grabs a grenade from her belt, pulling the pin. "FRAG OUT!" she shouts. "Ynyr! Target down th' hall!!"

The Old Man has been telling them to move up, and now the Platoon CO is barking too. So as soon as the Canners are down Mallas Scrambles to his feet. Going down the hallway looks like certain death from both sides, so the Private hoists his LMG and sprints to his right, crunching across broken glass and out onto the covered terrace. Then he veers left, charging towards the door to the game room, teeth gritted as he expects to get shot at any second.

It takes him a second longer than Kostas to ID but her call helps. Ynyr sees the One and shouts, "Flash Out! Want /him/ alive, if possible!" but as long as the one doesn't get away, dead will do as second best. Dunno if anyone else is listening to the Sergeant but Lleufer remembers what Amos had said, taking careful aim to throw! Yeah, Corpsman did all right, didn't get in his way and the stinging pain is slightly less.

"Negative," Amos calls, "he ain't surrendering so nail the fracker. Too dangerous to contain." Himself, he slips his rifle into fullauto mode and ignores the six entirely, aiming to put as many bullets as possible into the other human-form.

Moving forward as well, Fischer makes sure to try neutralizing the other Six while the others seem to go for the main target now. Firing off his shots before he dives for some cover now.

<COMBAT> Theone has left the combat. (Amos)

In the hail of flashes, bangs, explosions and bullets, the One hits the deck. Hard. It's not quite a misting, but it is very, very dead. The Six looks a lot better, having taken only a fleshwound, but at the sight of it's companion going down it takes a quick glance then charges towards the marines, emptying it's clip into them as it goes.

Well, helpful if orders didn't change mid combat and get confusing. Or maybe Ynyr misunderstood some finer point. Lleufer's already got the flash out and pin pulled, so he goes ahead and throws it. And not the best throw anyway. Either way it looks like they get the One down and so he pulls his rifle around on the strap to do his part to finish off that Six that's still going! "Good shots, Amos!"

(OOC Note: Flight team returns)

[Into the Wireless] Bennett says, "Marine team, this is Butch. Multiple centurions have been destroyed, though I would not be surprised if we have more incoming. Please expedite; we are ready and waiting for dustoff."

[Into the Wireless] Amos says, "Flight, Ground, copy. Target down, request extraction on lawn outside front enterance. We'll be there in a minute, tops."

"Game over, motherfrakker," Kostas mutters to herself as the Six makes his charge. Still, the ensign keeps her calm, firing off a burst towards the Knoxyknockoff. "Let's put the Little Shit down now, boys!"

Mallas is dashing across the terrace, headed to try and cut off the One's escape, when he sees the Six break cover and charge the opposite direction, to his left. Mallas pulls up and wheels left, bringing the Zasta up to his shoulder and tracking the skinjob as it runs across in front of him. The LMG roars as he pulls the trigger.

"Good shooting," Amos calls out, taking a second to breathe and reply to the raptors. THen he's calling to the marines again as the Corpman arrives at his side, "nail this fraker then out the door. Crap the other fraker's corpse on the way. Command'll appreciate proof I'm sure." That done, and working around Leightner, he raises his rifle and aims at the remaining Six.

Leightner remains moving over closer as the bullets continue to fly, edging toward Amos. The Captain doesn't even know he's hit.

Staying behind his cover, and firing off another burst. Nodding a little at what's being said, he mutters something under his breath.

[Into the Wireless] Bennett says, "Ground, Butch. Copy that."

And the second Six is mowed down in the covered walkway. "Good job, team!" Ynyr shouts. Make sure the Six in the kitchen is dead!" He goes forward as Amos ordered and whether by himself or with others, picks up and hefts the One to bring the body out as ordered. They seem to have taken very light damage but did some serious ass kick'n in the villa tonight, boys and girls. Lleufer looks around to make sure all of the team is getting out, "You heard the Captain, let's catch our ride!"

Leightner rises as the death dealing is done and moves to Amos. "Sir, you've been shot." He announces, and begins to look at the side of Amos' armor, Yes he has, in fact. "Wanna call it that sir." His gloves hands move, a stab and a numbness as he yanks a bullet and slaps a medipatch on it. "We can move."

"You heard the Cap'n," Kostas grins as the Six falls before he can make it all the way down the hallway, bullets going wild. She pauses as Ynyr starts with the commands, but shrugs it off, moving to cover the group as they clean house and get to the rally point.

Bennett's raptor is just setting down on the terrace when Mallas races out after the One. The sound of the engines at full spool is near deafening; there is no attempt at this point to be stealthy. Ramp lowered, the bus looks ready to take right off again as soon as her cargo is loaded; her pilot has her sidearm unholstered in case it's required.

And all around, the grass and stepping stones are littered with the shredded, broken corpses of centurions. Ten or fifteen of them, at the very least, though it's difficult to tell what parts belong to which. Scorch marks also decorate the ground here and there, and scattered piles of spent ammunition.

Leightner moves to grab Knox, and lifts him in a classic over the shoulder carry. The Sergeants head a pressure bandage on one side. He starts moving back to the Raptors, to extract with a Marine over his shoulder. Corpsman, HooH Ahh

With the Six's bullets firing wildly as the marines make their presence felt, it's fair to say that the end of the fight is particularly onesided. He stays where he is as Lleufer moves forward, letting the Corpsman work. "Alright then," the Captain replies, reaching a hand out towards the Corpsman once the wound is bandaged, "lets get moving shall we. I think we've out stayed our welcome." Starting to move down the hallway he's feeling the wound a little, but he's had worse. Seeing the corpse moving is already in hand he concentrates on getting into the Raptor and strapping in. "Looks like you had some fun too," he calls to Bennett, spotting the broken centurion soutside.

"Shame we don't have time ta look for papers and shit," Kostas remarks, as they move out. "S'pose they don't have much need for that though." Her gaze continues to sweep the terrace and the rest of the house, rifle at the ready for any other movements that catch her eye while folks get loaded in. She'll be the last one on, standing guard until all the marines are loaded safely.

Hurrying out with the others, Fischer shrugs a little bit to himself now. He looks quite unhurt at the moment, moving to help the others get loaded into the Raptors now.

<FS3> Kostas rolls Alertness: Success.
<FS3> Kalum rolls Alertness: Success.
<FS3> Jena rolls Alertness: Great Success.

Leightner is not looking around. He has a Marine over one shoulder. Extract is the order. He unsnaps the guard on his sidearm, but he's moving.

<FS3> Lleufer rolls Alertness: Good Success.

"Private, give th' Sarge a hand," Kostas tells Mallas as the first group nears the waiting raptor. It's just then she spots movement from the south, her rifle moving accordingly. "We got company!" she shouts to the other. "Prepare for incoming!"

Still at the door, manning the door gun, Jena doesn't look at the Marines as they board the Raptor, not even the hurt ones. She's offering cover for the extraction. With the whole night vision thing going on, she sees movement and calls out. "Enemy from the South, we've got maybe half a minute before they're near enough to open fire. GOGOGO!" Aiming on full auto with the HMG, she provides all the cover she can.

Leightners face tightens as he pours into a burst of speed, breaking into that emergency overdrive you save for moments you're carrying the life of another on your back. Lanky limbs eat ground as he runs with Knox now to the ships!

Lleufer does hold up a second to make certain that yes, somebody is seeing that Knox is getting out all right. Take care of their own, even if one of them is a Six. He comes out with the One thrown up over a shoulder but his hand is bloody. Ynyr hears Kostas's order and Mallas suddenly looms. Lleu hands over the One, "Get him aboard, thanks." Something catches his eye just as shouts go up that they aren't alone out here.

While the others are keeping their eyes outside of the Raptor Zhen's keeping hers inside. The DRADIS doesn't read itself, after all.

As the Raptor settles in for a landing, Kalum takes a look at the Marines, and sees that they don't at the very least need his immediate aid. As they run towards the Raptor, he scans behind them, and notices motion towards the south. "We've got incoming. From the south." The Petty Officer shouts out to the others in the Raptor. "Move move move!" He cries out to the Marines, motioning them towards the awaiting birds. "You got enemies on your six!"

No sooner does the shout go up that they've got company, than a marching band of centurions becomes illuminated by the raptors' floodlights. Ten or fifteen, at best guess; reinforcements perhaps for the ones who were taken down earlier. Several of them smash through the furniture in the dining pavilion, scattering and splintering it every which way. Others march right up from the pool as if the one metre ledge were nothing — it's long been emptied of water, and has mostly become a collector of dirt, dead leaves and the detritus of the last few months. All of them promptly open fire.

Leightner leaps up into the Raptor, crouching and heading for the far corner, curling to lay Knox into a seat and start strapping him down, checking his bandage and settling next to the Sergeant and holding on. He's tending to the man, and making sure he's secure then.

Fischer shakes his head a bit as he hears the shouts from various people, moving to climb into the Raptor now. "Hate this place…" he mutters to himself, as he prepares to help others aboard, if needed. Wincing as he sees the arriving centurions. "Come on, let's all get out of here?" he mutters.

Most of the time first one out, last one on. Such is the life of a platoon officer, and why they don't tend to live very long. Kostas remains outside, moving as she can towards the bird and make ready to jump on—but only after every last one of her Marines is safely on, rifle at the ready. She lays down fire at what she can until it makes sense to get on, but she's no rambo, and knows they need to get in the air ASAP.

Rahab frowns at sight of more centurions piling out into view. "We really don't have time for this!" he calls out at the back of the Raptor. "Really like to get moving, y'know…-if that's okay with everyone!-"

Leightner winces as the bullets go flying and he does what he's trained to do, throwing himself over his patient. The reports of the fire make him tense.

Another hit to his chest but his armour mostly takes it. Ynyr holds his place for one second longer to fire off a burst at the Centurion that's coming at him. He then hauls his ass up through the door and goes to throw himself into a seat to strap down. The door gunners will have it now.

Amos is securing himself in a seat as the bullets start flying again. "Fraking hell," he starts, moving to unsling his rifle to aid in returning fire, but then Lleufer is pilling in past him and he figures it's likely that time again when all he can do is strap in and trust the pilot upfront. Besides, the pain from that bullet is starting to cut through the adrenalin and whatever it was that Leightner did.

Bennett is already firewalling her thrusters and peeling the raptor off the terrace before everyone's seated, and well before the hatch is yanked shut for Kalum to get himself set up. "Hold on, please," she tells her passengers mildly. "This may get a little bumpy." And indeed it does as the fully loaded bus punches skyward with enough Gs to slam its occupants back into their seats.

Kostas keeps her eyes on her Marines, watching both groups as they board. Once the last one has his boots off the ground, then she swings into her raptor, getting out of the way of the gunner and helping to secure whoever else needs securing before taking her seat.

[Into the Wireless] Bennett says, "Flight, Butch. Spool FTL for immediate jump when ready."

Leightner draws back from his position covering Knox with.. himself, and checks the Sergeants reactions, working and as they announce the flight will be leaving he nods, "Aye, good here."

"Move it, Marines." Kalum shouts out in as friendly a manner as he can, while laying down heavy fire on the approaching Centurions. The HMG barks loudly with each shot, and brass rounds clatter around the inside of the Raptor. Seeing that most of the marines are on, the PJ starts to pick his targets carefully, and fires controled bursts now — versus laying down cover fire for the remaining marines outside.

Ygraine fires off another shot at one of the Centurions, which plinks off its armor. Letting out a frustrated growl, she retreats deeper into the raptor, sitting down at her console. "Spoolin' up, Dogmeat!" she hollers. "Get us up soon as ya can once all our boys are loaded! I'll hold the final coordinate for as long as I can!"

Once Rahab gets the all clear for when everyone is aboard his Raptor, he guns, leaving a scorch mark on the ground where it had prevously been. "Thank for flying Me Airways, we'll be back at Orion in…soon. Your in-flight movie is Fearless. If you're lucky, Lieutenant Ygraine may pass out drinks and if you look to your right, you'll find some very disgruntled Centurions below you."

Fischer gets into his seat as well now, securing himself carefully. Placing his rifle next to him, he leans back in his seat very carefully. "My guardians…" he mutters under his breath, otherwise just keeping silent.

The FTL is spooled up and goes green. "Let me know when, Butch," Rainbow calls out. Just a matter of waiting for the good to go from the boss lady.

Manning the doorgun, Jena provides cover for the remaining Marines loading up, except for the Marines also providing cover for each other. Letting loose on full auto, she strikes a couple of the centurions, but still, they keep coming.

Amos rides the lift-off with practiced ease, his eye don't even flit as there's a ding from the direction of the wing. As of now, there's nothing more he can do so he keeps quiet and lets the aircrew do their thing. Lleufer gets a glance though, and a quick 'job done' nod as he safeties his rifle and prepares for jump.

After dumping the bullet-riddled corpse of the model One onto the floor of his raptor, Mallas managed to himself aboard and into one of the jump seats. And then he's just along for the ride, waiting to see if they get shot down or fly off into the sunset.

When getting the 'OK' signal from Milkshake, Dogmeat guns, jumping them out of there. And not too soon either. There's particular hard hit to the Raptor, making one of Rahab's warning lights flicker on, but it doesn't seem to be any noticable ride or noise coming from the vehicle itself. Will have to get that checked out. The pilot is too concerned with flying to really be able to know what did or didn't hit.

And finally, mercifully, the raptors' jumps are keyed in, and the ships blink out of the sky one after the other like dying stars. Meanwhile, far below, the centurions eventually give up the fight and let their machinegun arms wind down as they watch their quarry slip right through their metal fingers.

Kostas is content to remain in her webbing, making sure everything's clear within her reach so that Jena can get to working on the ECO ASAP. She chuffs a soft breath, especially when Milkshake manages to get them out regardless of her wound, but as there's nothing she can do, she leans her head back against the seat for a moment, catching her breath.

The count is starting and Ygraine rises to get the last few marines in, when suddenly there's -poing- as a bullet ricochets and sends her hurtling back toward her console. As she slides down with a thump, Ygraine's eyes are wide with surprise and shock, and red blossoms in a gush along her neck. Thankfully the spool has already started.

The Raptor lifts up off the ground, the Marines are on, and Kalum swings the HMG out of the way. He smacks the controls on the door for the hatch to close, and hatch closes with a soft hiss. "All clear…" He shouts out to Bennett and Zhen. With that said, he pulls out his flashlight, and turns to shine it on the bodies of the marines — looking for signs of blood. "Any of you boys injured?"
