See Anadyr Island Assault for the beginning of the assault

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!

Before long, the distinct shape of a robotic form shimmers into view in the low light precisely where Ygraine predicted; somewhere off to the raptors' two o'clock, and twenty feet down on the ground. It promptly swivels its gun arm and opens fire on one of the raptors, and is joined moments later by its cohort off to the left.

Bennett wastes little time in spooling the raptor's twin engines back up, and preparing for getting them airborne once more. "Check the hatch please, Rainbow, we are dusting off." With all that noise, there's not much point in being stealthy anymore. The engines thrum to life, and she switches on the bus's floodlights to give them a better view of what they're looking at down there: two centurions, converging on their position from the east and west, and two more groupings marching in from the southern path that leads up from the filthy swimming pool that's long fallen into disuse.

Once Jena has the confirm, Ygraine rises out of her seat and takes up a kneeling position using the inner wall of the raptor as cover. Unstrapping her sidearm, she removes it and brings it up in a cup and saucer grip so she can start firing.

Zhen makes sure to keep track of how many enemy blips show up on the DRADIS, her jaw clenched. The excitement-induced queasiness passes, much to her relief, and just in time to check the hatch. It's closed and the ECO gives the pilot a thumbs up, indicating that they're good to go.

Being the pilot an all, he sorta has to stay at the controls of his Raptor. So no gunplay for him. Save that for the bedroom an all. "Ah, damnit!" as he hears bullets ping off the vehicles armor. "I'm not gonna be some damn sitting duck." Retaking the controls, he gears down the spooling throttle to get them back into the air. "Swear, I'm not going home without blowing -something- up."

Once the Centurions open fire on the Raptor, Kalum moves to return fire. The loud raport of the HMG fills the air, and the soft rattle of brass on the cabin floor is heard. Half a dozen shots are poored down towards the single centurion, and Kalum shows no sign of letting up. The HMG shakes the PJ violently, and he really doesn't aim using the sites, but follows the tracers down towards his target.

In position and after noting the location of the enemy, Jena does the same, the echoing of the HMG sounds through the area, hopefully also alerting the Marines to the presence of the enemy. Alerted to the lift off, she checks her safety line and continues her shooting.

As the fire continues this turn, Kalum turns his attention towards the pair of Cylons that have been shooting at them, and begins to spread out his fire amongst them. The heavy machine gun thumps against his chest, but the Petty Officer doesn't let up on his fire — sending tracer round after tracer round down into their enemies.

With Rahab lifting off, Ygraine mutters under her breath and rises to her feet, using her long legs to get her back to the ECO chair as she readies her missile systems.

The centurions on the ground aim their guns at the parked raptors, and open fire with a hail of bullets. One has its armour torn to shreds, and its leg goes flying off and whipping through the bushes as it crashes to the ground. But the gunfire does not abate for more than a moment, even with it lying prone on the paving stones overgrown with grass.

Bennett finally gets their bird off the roof, floodlight briefly sweeping away to ensure they don't have any other surprise guests, then refocusing on the centurions lining up to take potshots at them. "Think you can get off a missile into that group over there?" she asks Zhen behind her. To their door gunner, "Good hits, Kalum."

Pulling the Raptor up into the air, he comes back around to bear down on the group, thumb flicking the switch on the miniguns. "You're hot, ElTee." he starts without looking over at Ygraine. "Light'em up." He wants to look behind his should, but he doesn't bother. "Still with us, Petty Officer?" he calls back to Jena, but before letting the whirr of the twenty-mill do the talking for him.

Zhen hits the switch to arm the missiles and then one group is targeted. "Shall we say a quick prayer," she teases. The missile is launched and seems to hit the intended target which gets her to whooop happily. "Holy frak, Butch!" There hasn't been much of a chance for her to shoot weapons like that before and this gives her a rush. The DRADIS is looked at as she tries to decern the next best target.

It's like sharks drawn to the scent of blood. Suddenly centurions begin pouring in from all angles as the raptors lift off and their comrades begin to fall. A few even step over the fallen bodies and grind them into the ground in their earnestness to bring down the colonial ships. Their guns flare bright in the muggy dark, the report deafening.

Bennett drags the bulky bus, bristling with weaponry, back into the air with a whine of the VTOL thrusters as dirt and leaves and debris are blown off the roof in their wake. "Well, this is not as subtle as I had hoped," she murmurs into her helmet, reaching for the pull-down trigger mechanism for the ship's minigun.

Kalum watches the fireworks from the door, and glances back briefly at the ECO. "Nice shot, Rainbow." He shouts out above the wind, and then squeezes the trigger again — spraying into yet another approaching group of centurions. Hot brass falls out of the door as the Raptor banks, and Kalum continues to pound away on the targets below. "It never ever goes like planned, Sir…" Kalum says into his comm. "No mission like this ever does."

When the bullets sweep down some of the centurions, Jena doesn't hesitate in continuing the sweeping motion of the HMG. Rattattat. The sound is loud, so she doesn't immediately register the Pilot or ECO if they speak to her. "We've got more coming!" Calling it to the ECO. Course she probably knew before Jena, with that DRADIS.

"You wantes subtle you should've made the Marines walk, Butch." The targeting system locks onto the next grouping but this time the missile goes wide, missing them entirely. Thankfully others had shot at the same one and they're mowed down. Sighing, Zhen shakes her head, mostly at the weapons readout says there is only one left. Shrugging, she gets ready to let that mother fraker fly.

There's a quick glance to the ECO and the Pilot. "I hope the Marines are faring well inside there. If anyone gets hurt… I'm just glad there's a Corpsman with them." Continuing her firing now, she concentrates on a particular Centurion.

"Worry 'bout what's in front of ya, Cruz." is Milkshake's advice in reply as she starts lining up her last missile.

More centurions are blasted to bits under the combined assault from the raptors' arsenal, and the air is filled with the sound of metal being torn to shreds, and ordnance slamming into the ground with enough force to rip the surrounding shrubbery out by their roots. Still, the enemy does not let up.

Kalum keeps pounding away on the centurions down on the ground, but his fire is slowing some — as the targets have been thinned out some. He holds a hand up briefly to shield himself from the fires burning below, and lets his eyes refocus on one more centurion. He fires a quick burst at it.

And then suddenly, there is stillness from below. Through the cloud of discharged weaponry and kicked-up dirt, the pilots and crew can still make out the outline of the villa, and the compound below — the latter veritably littered with twisted metal and spent rounds. No movement can be detected from the building's perimeter. No blips on DRADIS. For now, at least, they appear to be alone.

Bennett blows a breath out her nose, and shoves the trigger mechanism back into its compartment before retaking the flight yoke. "Good work, both of you," she tells her passengers with a small smile. "Let's set back down and wait for our rifles. Kalum, you may wish to be prepared for incoming, in case our medics require assistance."

The whirring of the minigun falls into silence, Rahab checking the DRADIS one last time before satisfied there's nothing else in the area. "Alright, and the crowd goes wild." he notes, switching from weapons over to piloting. "Cruz, when we touch down, you might want to be ready to go if you're needed."

Kalum reaches up and grabs a handle above the door, and leans against his gun for a moment as the world wheels beneath him. "Aye, aye, Captain." He says quietly, and braces himself for another turn as the Raptor returns to the Villa. "Did we take any damage on that run?" The Petty officer asks.

Bennett's eyes flicker over her systems readouts, and she gives Kalum a quick shake of her head as she maneuvers the bus in for a gentle touchdown. "Negative. Green across the boards." Whether that's owed to her flying, or the canners' poor aim, is something she doesn't bother dwelling upon.

Zhen huffs out a sigh that is loud enough to be heard despite her wearing that helmet. "Think everything's alright now," she assesses, speaking casually instead of in a manner that's more befitting a military op.

At this point, the raptors land and are rejoined by the marines
