Lake City, Caprica
An unremarkable town on Caprica because the site of some remarkably horrible events.
18 JAN 2006 (AWD#377)

It's towards watch change for most of the ship with several teams swapping duty across most of Tactical, Marines, and the Wing. The ship is fairly quiet and has been for the last week or two. There's been no major devlopments and a lot of what seems to have happened in the last few months seems to have been allowed to settle well. There had been a pair of Raptors sent to Caprica early yesterday morning and they're due back just about now. Or were. They're about thirty minutes late. The people who are monitoring the radio systems, though, seem to sit up quickly. A couple are already running. For those who have been on the Deck, a Petty Officer First Class is running down the center, yelling something about downed aircrew on Caprica and getting the birds ready. For people elsewhere, the first sign something is amiss comes when the Admiral's voice comes over the 1MC.

"All hands, this is the Admiral. We've got a Raptor down on Capirca and the ECO is alive. We all know what happens if the Cylons get a hold of one of our people. We've got two Marines down at the crash site trying to secure it, but its in an enemy-controlled city. There are reports of SAMs and possible gun positions. Their escort says its too hot to land anything right now. We're going to change their minds." A pause lingers before he comes back. "General Quarters, General Quarters. Set Condition One throughout the fleet. Secure the mess line and Chief of the Deck, spin up every bird you've got. Gun crews, all safeties removed on minimum ranges. Wing, this is a scramble order. This is not a drill. Jameson, out."

Alejandro was in the CAG's office making prep for the upcoming Department Head meeting. Practically everything and every one stops on the ship to glance up, poised and listening. As soon as the message is even half through, Hobo leaps up from his desk and doesn't wait for Condition 1 to be set. He /runs/ as fast as he can for his quarters to rip open his locker and pull his flight suit and kit to change out of his blues. It's not long after that he and many other are pelting through the corridors to run for the hangar deck at top speed. As soon as he gets there, Captain Salazar starts shouting when he sees his pilots assembling, "Janik, on me! Crater, Superstar, pair up!" They can sort out between themselves who'll fly who's wing. Hobo climbs up into his usual viper #537 and slaps on his helmet to seal it up and start a very fast preflight check.

Niko is in the Sims, reviewing footage from Aerilon when he hears that old guy over the intercom. The young pilot tilts his head, then looks around quizzically at the other personnel. There's an ECO down on Caprica? Then it dawns on him. "Oh frak." And then the kid is scrambling along with the rest of the wing — at least he knows where to go during Condition One. A quick trip back to his locker for flight suit and helmet, and then he's jogging down the corridor toward the hangar bay where the Lucky Strikes' Vipers are berthed. Niko has barely made it into the hangar, let alone had time to wonder which ship he's supposed to fly, before he hears the squadron commander's orders. "Roger that!" He clambers swiftly up into the viper adjacent to Hobo, hops down into the seat, and starts getting strapped in and ready.

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Flight, Hobo, TAC1 coms check. Let me hear you pilots, over."

Suited up as he prepared for his shift, Jason comes to a stop as he listens to what's being said. "Only the ECO…" he mutters, before he moves over towards his Raptor, to prepare for going out there. Glancing to the others as he does.

Kelsey was getting out of the shower and getting dressed. Lazy morning. She's in the middle of yawning when the alert drops. Oh hell. Throwing on her flight suit, she is still trying to get her survival vest on while she's charging down the corridors. The helmet is just going on as she spots Alejandro. Being pointed towards a Raptor, she runs down the line and spots one already fueled and armed. Bomb racks, missiles, and guns. And a doorgun. The pilot points at an ECO and tells them to follow as she clambors up into the Raptor and begins running a very, very fast pre-flight.

Endymion is, on the other hand, just about to come off of his own shift, and he goes straight from running post-flight to running pre-flight without ever quite disembarking. It would drip with deja-vu if it weren't a completely different circumstance, the announcement and the condition one alert doing as well as a cup or seven of coffee might in terms of jolting him vividly prepared. A brief nod to his ECO confirms that the backseat is also good to go.

As soon as he's through with his hurried preflight checks and even before he hears the other pilots chime in with their radio tests, Hobo gives the signal to Deck that he's ready to move into position for launch. Carefully mindful of people running around the hangar, he warms up his viper and jockies into his launch tube, following the hand signals of the Deckies. Once they give him the signal that he's good to go, Alejandro puts through the call to request permission to launch.

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Hobo, Janik. I'm here."

[Into the Wireless] Kelsey says, "Squire up, pre-flights running green so far. Raptor-G spinning, Hobo."

Going through the pre-flight, Jason keeps his attention on that for a little while longer. Taking a few brief moments to get things in order, to avoid getting any bad surprises.

[Into the Wireless] Jason says, "Superstar ready to launch."

[Into the Wireless] Endymion says, "Hobo, this is Blanket, we're in pre-flight, we'll be right behind."

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Janik, Squire, Blanket, Hobo Copies. Hold for Orion's clearance for launch. I think she's jumping us."

Niko rushes through pre-flight and then snaps the obligatory salute to the deck crew as they shut the canopy and seal him into the viper. Hurry up and wait. Now comes the second part — the new pilot is left tapping his foot and double-checking his bird while he waits for deck to get his viper in the tube and ready to launch.

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Janik copies. Never been jumped by a battelstar before…"

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Orion Tactical, Flight Lead. We copy and are ready to launch on your order, Over."

It's three jumps back to the colonies. The whole fleet of combatant ships makes the jump. There's supposed to be several basestars over Caprica at any given time and that translates to hundreds of Raiders. Across the whole fleet, every single Viper spends the 30 minutes of jump getting their Vipers ready and the flak frigates maneuvering into defensive positions around the Super-Dreadnaughts. Gun crews on every ship have reset their safeties, too. Those rounds will explode against the first thing they hit, no matter how close it is. This is going to be a gunfight, all the way, with only a small group heading for the surface to run Combat Search and Rescue along with Wild Weasel.

When the order to launch comes, it's right after the jump. Even before the words have stopped echoing across the ship, the whole structure shakes as the guns across the spine all begin firing while the flak guns roar. The battle has already started and the Wing hasn't even fired a shot yet. With the Raptors all running off the flight deck, the Vipers kick out of their launch tubes. What they see might bug a few eyes out of their heads. There's four base-stars over the planet, maneuvering towards the side where the downed Raptor is. One of them is already coming apart with the arms blowing off while the Super-Dreads blow it to pieces, the bus-sized explosive rounds plowing in and exploding several decks at a time. The three other basestars are already firing missiles while the flak frigates cover. Every single cruiser has turned its guns on the other basestars and are firing, but the rounds are going to take time to cover the distance. Ahead of them, hundreds of Raiders seem to form clouds i nthe distance as they wheel to head towards the fleet. The way towards the surface looks clear for the moment. That probably won't last long.

Niko is jammed back into his seat by the G-force as he launches. Viper 645 comes clear of the tube and the new pilot is momentarily distracted by the site before him. Caprica — another planet he gets to see for the first time from the cockpit of a viper, going into combat. The exploding basestar gives him a rush of confidence — the fleet looks like it can deal with them. But then he picks up those clouds of Raiders on DRADIS, and things look a lot less rosy.

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Frak there's a lot of them."

Lords and Ladies of Kobol! That is the most breathtaking and scaries sight Alejandro has EVER seen. His flight suit can handle it if he pisses himself, right? But really, he has no time for staring like a slack jawed idiot. As soon as he's launched and is able, he manages to suck in a breath, "Holy Frak'n shit. Gods help us all." And he's not even a religious man! He lays over the stick to form up with the Raptors and starts looking around hard and fast, eyes bright. Hobo checks the positions of everyone else and puts on throttle.

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Flight, Hobo. Form up fast! No gawking. Heads on a swival and let's use some throttle, Over."

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Weapons hot!"

Kelsey stares as she looks out of the canopy glass. "Oh my sweet Gods," she breathes to herself and crew. "This-" She shakes her head and focuses on the point on the planet. She plugs into the coordinates into the flight computer and it spits out headings for her. She firewalls the throttles, but it takes a bit for her heavily laden bird to get going. But she isn't sitting around, that many Raiders isn't going to give her time to sit around and admire the view.

[Into the Wireless] Kelsey says, "Squire is downbound, weapons red and free!"

Launching, Jason shakes his head momentarily. "Let's do it…" he mutters, starting to lead his Raptor into position. Whatever his reaction to the hordes of enemies is, he's keeping that inside. After all, he's not alone in this craft. Turning the Raptor into poition.

Endymion calls back to his backseat for a lock on Squire's position, and, even on emerging from Orion's bay, he's falling into a loose formation with her, low on the axis of karom and about at her seven o'clock, giving him plenty of room to evade while keeping tight enough to allow for easier viper coverage. It's easier to look at the consoles and data than it is to look up at the dawning visage of destruction, but his eyes are drawn thither at last, lips parted in a moment of awe before he's back on comms.

[Into the Wireless] Endymion says, "Squire, Blanket; forming up position lambda on your tail and downbound in sequence."

"Son of a glitch." That's the reaction that Zander has to the downright nastiness of what he's seeing both outside and on his screens. As the ECO of the chosen Raptor, he's seeing quite a bit of bad news and he's definitely not liking what he's seeing. "Frak it." It takes Zander a moment before hie personality seems to shift into a more driven and focused manner. "Let's aim for the High Score." As if his vocal cheering ever really is understood by anyone else but him. Poor Airwing.

The voice of the Lucky Strikes' CO on the wireless snaps Niko out of his stare, and he gets back on the job. His viper vectors over to form up on Hobo's five o'clock, following the flight lead down the gravity well and toward the planet. Maybe there won't be as many SAM as last time.

As the team descends, Raiders begin to split off and head their direction. The Viper escorts are sure as hell going to have their hands full. But far below them all, 75,000 feet down, they can barely make out the town as a spec on the map. Just another smudge on Caprica's surface… and then it isn't. Little sparkles of light appear, glinting ever so faintly on the canopy glass. It attracts the eye. Little black puffs begin apprearing in the sky, too, in the space in between the ships and the ground. Flak. The Viper's aren't the only ones who have incoming trouble, though. The Raptors that are rocketing towards the surfce have their threat warning recievers begin lighting off with warnings. There are guns and SAMs down there.

Alejandro pushes the throttle forward to lead the way to take the flight down hard and fast through atmo once he has the coordinates piped in to zero in on. With the viper escort, Hobo does his best to get them diving into the clouds before the swarms of Raiders can get all over them, leaving all but the most obvious of heavy fire behind them as the stars fade and they are heading for the surface. Thrust over powers the less obvious pull of the gravity well. Captain Salazar keeps an eye on the Raptor flight's progress to pace the vipers so they don't get too far ahead. The stick shudders hard in his hands with the friction of the transit and his viper vibrates. Hobo flies by instruments alone for a brief period until the flight breaks through the cloud cover and out over Caprica's landscape.

Down, down Hobo drops to take them lower as the arrow in. The Lake City looms on the horizon as they scream in towards it and things begin to come alive below.

[Into the Wireless] Amos says, "Flight, Ommanney. *HMG fire* We're underfire but holding. Enemy have AA and something big is in the vacinity. No eyes on, can not ID. *more HMG fire*"

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Flight, Hobo! Watch your DRADIS and sing out when you locate the AA batteries on the co-ordinates! Vipers, watch for Raiders!"

<FS3> Zander rolls ECM: Great Success.

The bumpy, firey ride of re-entry is its own kind of exciting, but once their down into 'the soup' of Caprica Niko is scanning the DRADIS again, as well as employing the Mark One Eyeball. He drifts a little off station while scanning, and then has to focus on his flying for a few seconds, getting back into position with Hobo and fighting the chop. He picks up a the DRADIS contact of those Raiders streaking to intercept, but the new guy sticks with his lead, waiting for Hobo to break and attack.

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Two Raiders, eleven o'clock, twenty miles and closing fast!"

Jason frowns as he keeps on flying. "Let me know where the enemy is," he calls back.

<FS3> Jason rolls Piloting: Great Success.

Kelsey still has the throttles firewalled. The Raptor i dropped down to about 300 feet and the turbulance rattles the whole interior. Its just like a really fat Predator… right. She flips a switch on the weapons console and retards the bombs. The pilot looks out and to the left as she rides the bumpy air in through an arc, keeping the shot from being easy against her. But the pipper on her HUD is about to cross one of the SAM sites. She runs her finger over the red button on her stick before tapping it once and reversing her turn.

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Janik, Hobo! Crater's tied up! Keep that Raider off of Superstar!"

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Hobo, Janik. Roger!"

Buttons is flipping some switches and getting things geared up for the battle that will end up with all things being dead. "We got Raiders comin' up hot. I got Batteries that need to be Assaulted." Zander feeds the information right to Jason as he gets focused on loading up those Bomb Racks on Racks on Racks. It's time to light these fools up.

[TAC1] Amos says, "Flight, Ommanney. Chatterbox is trapped in wreckage, efforts to free him hampered by incoming fire. Still holding, but we have more contacts incomming from side streets."

Endymion keeps his eyes fixed on the data readouts on his consoles and Squire's bird in turns, keeping fast in formation with her in order to follow her drop with one of his own, almost exactly on spot with her before veering off. "Brace, brace," he calls back, trying his best to pull away from the incoming fire.

Given the order to engage one on one, Niko pushes the stick over and flares the MCS, sending is viper into a spiraling turn to get onto the tail of the Raider engaging Jason's Raptor. He's totally focused on the kill, but even so Niko can't quite get the gunsight on target. His tracers sail past the weaving Cylon craft, and the rookie curses under his breath, backing off the throttle and trying to line up for another shot before he manages to hit the Raptor.

And in they swoop, low and fast! The city scape seems to fly by beneath them as the vipers and the Raptors throw fleating, rippling shadows a head of them over the buildings. Up ahead the AA batteries closest begin firing to throw up flak in their paths! The two Raiders already on top of the area dive in firing. Who knows what is happening up above with the Orion and the basestars. Down here everything heats up and requires the pilots' and crews' full attention!

The downed Raptor and remains of a second Raptor might be glimpsed to flash by below as bomb racks are engaged to attack their targets. Daylight throws up glare and flashes of light reflected off of the buildings as well as the tell-tale trails of Surface to Air missile launches. The first bombs make impact with impressive explosions as one of the AA batteries is engulfed in an expanding inferno of fire.

Luc comes in quick and hot, trying to help out. Seeing the raiders aiming for one of the raptors as Luc is coming into the picture. Coming in hard and working as well as he can as things. Doing his best to try and access the situation.

As the Raptors and Vipers pass overhead, a simple glance down and they can get a good gander at just how bad the situation is. The Raptor crashed into some kind of storefront with it's canopy facing up the street. The door has sheered off and the doorgun is down there booming, kicking out tracers. Mosto f the line of fire is clear but for a few people returning fire, but the sidestreets are packed with mobs. There must be more than 500 pounds down there in seething throngs. They're hampered by approach because there's a gas station behind the Raptor that appears to have exploded somehow and is leaking a lake of flaming gasoline to cover a flank approach. But the mobs are seeking out alleyways and having some luck trying to get through there. They're going to have the ship engaged close quarters VERY soon.

Randy is in the back of Kelsey's Raptor, along for this wild ride till the bitter end. She's kept rather quiet in all of the activities. Perhaps something about being inside metal that makes everything feel so much safer than it actually is. Perhaps so many other possibilities, but for now, she stares at /the big gun/ she'll be manning as they get in closer. "Just let me know when it's my show. Or you know, just open the door on me," she tries the lighten the tenseness lamely.

Alejandro leans into his turn to chase a Raider that was Squire's six! He manages to keep it distracted just enough and nails it with a fairly solid shot but doesn't take it out. His head is truely on a swival, comparing what his HUD is showing him with what his eyes can also tell him - Hobo gets a glimpse of what's on the ground and how their people down below look to be situated. He grimaces and as the Raider insists on staying on Squire, he stays on that Raider hard and close to keep firing!

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Ommaney, Flight Leader. I see mobs of people down there with you! Must be hundreds and more coming! Burning gasoline from the station seems to be keeping them at bay off of your flank. They are trying to get at you through the alleys! We'll provide cover fire as we are able, over!"

Kelsey opens up the back door for Randy as she rockets the Raptor through a high-G turn, trying to come back around on the SAM site she failed to kill on the first go-round.

"Just keep the bombs in order, I'll take care of staying out of the Raiders' path," Jason replies, focusing on the flying for now. Trying to give Zander a better angle to drop them.

Endy's world goes pale with the flash of the explosion that rocks his craft, and for a second his heart's half in his throat, his boat flipping its way clear of the periphery of the explosion with only a nick or two from the shrapnel scraping the paint. But systems are red and blaring at him on the inside, and he's frantically running re-routes for the few moments afterward, drifting out of formation with Squire and at the same time reporting in on comms.

[Into the Wireless] Endymion says, "Squire, Blanket, I've lost your seven, but we're OK. Coming after you."

[Into the Wireless] Kelsey says, "Copy, Blanket. Rolling in on that SAM that doesn't want to die. ….Gods, watch for small arms fire!"

[TAC1] Amos says, "Flight lead, Ommanney. Copy that. We have a sniper on a rooftop 100m down the road as well as the mobs. Still holding. *more HMG fire*"

Luc is able to see some of what happens on the ground, from the corner of his eyes. As well as hearing what Alejandro is saying. Diving to try and help out and cover as much as possible. Seeing one aiming for the flight leader. Trying to get rid of the raider.

<FS3> Jason rolls Piloting: Great Success.

Alejandro sees everyone splitting to direct multiple fire just as he's about to start telling pilots what to hit - but he doesn't need to. They are good and they know what they are doing, spreading around the hurt. His own craft has been lightly hit and he ignores the brief alarm of Betty bitching as he stays on that Raider, even as it switches from chasing Squire to trying to light up Superstar. Hobo's dark eyes flick here and there to keep tabs on everyone at once as best he can with nothing (as far as he knows) riding his own six. The coms chatter in his ear occasionally even as his eyes lock onto his target for a few seconds and his gloved hand depresses the trigger stud on his stick to make his KEW sing!

The crowds down low don't seem to be getting any smaller. While the crashed Raptor's doorgun rips apart the corner roof of a building, likely the sniper's nest, the mobs seem to seethe. The one closest to the crumbling corner seems to have had enough. More than 100 people run down the street and into the line of fire, charging the crash site. It's impossible to tell of any of them are armed. From above, the two crowds on either side are trying to make their way into buildings and get flank access. So far they are just appearing to make a lot of noise, but some people are making their way onto the roofs.

Niko is lining up for another shot on the Raider when the warning alarms start going off in his cockpit. SAM lock on! This is an all-too-familiar noise and even he knows to react instantly. A quick KEW shot at the Raider misses, and then he jams the stick left and hits the throttle, piling on the Gs and trying to give the incoming missile an intercept angle that it can't match. And this time, he's lucky — the SAM can't make the turn and explodes well out of range. "Thank gods…" Niko breathes. Then he cranes his neck, looking for the Raiders they still need to deal with … and finds there are even more than before. Seeing two on the tail of a Raptor, he turns his Viper to try and help.

Randy unclips herself from the bench and clips herself quickly into a rung overhead as she jumps on the doorgun. "Let's frak it up." She readies the weapon as they pull back around and /misses/. She coughs conspicuously, clearing her throat, but it's not loud enough to cut over the gunfire and general chaos. She takes the free moments to make sure her extra ammo is handy, draping a bandolier over her shoulder. "Squire. The mobs are trying to get flank! And roofs!" she shouts out from her viewpoint at the door.

"Take the ECM magic back there, and I'll drop some bombs," Jason suggests, just as he manages to avoid some incoming fire from the raiders. Shaking his head, he focuses on dropping the bombs on one of the AA Batteries, leaving Zander free to suppress.

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Crater, Hobo! Fire at the mob (mob1) trying to get to our downed Raptor! We /have/ to give them fire support or we're done here!"

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Flight, anyone who can, fire on that mob!"

Luc hearing Alejandro's words has Luc changing his target as he spins his viper and aims for the mob going for the downed raptor. Trying to keep them at bay and help as much as he can.

[Into the Wireless] Kelsey says, "Copy, Hobo. Squire inbound. Guns guns."

[Into the Wireless] Luc says, "Hobo, Crater. Affirmative, heading in now."

Hobo breaks off chasing the Raider to put his own actions to his words. His viper slews around hard and fast to line up on that alley and see what kind of fire support he can lend to the their downed comrades! But he's also got to keep an eye out for not running into any of his flight or fouling up their own runs while he does so. No sooner is he lining up than his HUD lights up with fire control from the AA batteries firing missiles at him, "FRAK!"

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Flight, Hobo! I have an AA battery lighting me up with SAM lock! Make that /two/. I thought you guys took them out?!"

Kelsey rolls the Raptor off the target of the SAM and looks at the mob. She blinks a few times, then replying over the radio. She reaches down to arm up the high explosive miniguns on the winglets and dives in. "Doorgunner, lean on out the side and shred anything on that street." Voice flat.

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Stay on that mob!"

Endymion is keeping on Squire's tail to drop bombage down on the AA units down the line. When she rolls off to engage the mob, he glances her way but keeps on course, either too close to dropping to switch targets, or a little shy of dropping bombs on… mobs. Either way.

As the aircraft pass low, the Raptor and Viper make their runs and bodies fall. The carnage is unreal. Some of them even stopped to fire. But 2000 rounds per minute from two guns, plus a fifty, plus two 30mm Viper guns? The street is left in ruin. The outbound Raptor and Viper can't see it, but their jetwash clears the smoke and dust from the air. They can see that it wasn't just adults. Looking closer, they can see that the other mobs have much the same make-up. These people aren't people. They're human, but they've lost their minds. Bodies of all ages make up the carnage.

Niko can hear the flight leader calling for attacks on the crowd, but the rookie finds himself a little busy with Raiders to get down on the deck. In a rolling in scissors with one of the Cylons, Niko manages a good hit on the Raider while staying clear of its guns himself. "Suck on that, frakker!" But the heavily damaged Raider is still flying.

[Into the Wireless] Kelsey says, "Hobo, Squire, how'd the rounds land? Pulling off and going after the SAMs."

Randy bites her lower lip when she hears the radio chatter and steels herself for what's about to come next. She glances back towards the front of the Raptor to Kelsey and then reaches up to tighten her tether so she can lean against it out of the door to get a freer angle, and exposing herself in turn. She forces her eyes to stay open as she sprays the gun out into the mob. She braces her body with bent knees. Bullets fly taking down body after body. "We got'em!" she reports back to Kelsey, scanning the area to see how their people are doing. Perhaps trying to find the familiar faces she know. Her eyes fall on the bodies, remembering the hollowed out minds as clear as day on the faces. "They're…" But she can't seem to finish, or stops herself. She grits her teeth as she shifts her weight with the sway of the craft. She tracks the landscape as they hurtle along, readying herself for the SAMs again.

As it happens, Hobo does his best to fire on that alley but all he does is strafe up the building as he has to also focus much of his attention on trying NOT to get hit by missiles. Thankfully there are others coming along that same alley ahead or behind him to do the work for him. Both missiles manage to miss him though one of them explodes against a building a little closer than the viper pilot would have liked. Still, any one you can fly away from, right? The acting CAG turns his head this way and that as he pulls his viper around to have a look, glancing at his HUD for DRADIS readout as well on the way.

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Squire, Hobo. Looks good! You gave them some relief. ECO's do we have any more batteries on DRADIS? My scope is clear except for Raiders and mobs."

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro grimaces as he swoops back, "Damn. Some of those are just kids in the alley!

The ECO's are picking up strange contacts on the DRADIS and sing out. More Raiders in coming and, on the ground mobile units? They look like additional AA Batteries on the DRADIS being moved in from other parts of the city to try and concentrate fire. They aren't all stationary.

[TAC1] Amos says, "Flight, Ommanney. We're seconds away from being over run. Evans is still trapped. Some of them are young yes, but they're armed and they're trying to kill us. Touching as it is, now is not the time for sentiment. We need those mobs delt with."

Luc swears as he misses his target. Looping around to continue to offer fire to try and help out and get rid of the mob. Shots being fired one after another. "Hold out." He says to himself as he hear the com talk.

Endymion lets the bombs drop and peels off to let the blast hit or miss as fate declares. In the four or five seconds between his course change and checking to see what remains of the ground to air unit, that's all he can see, the people being mown down in the alley at a distance. Fortunately, he's not close enough to see faces. Still, it's something to see. It's his backseat updating him on the AA Batteries that snaps him back to now.

[Into the Wireless] Luc says, "Ommaney, Crater. Hold out. I am gunning for them, stay out of the line of fire as much as you can."

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Ommanney, Flight Leader. We copy. Concentrating fire on mobs. More Raiders and mobile AA Batteries are also incoming but not yet in range. Over."

Bombs away, Jason's attention turns to the mobs now. Going to the miniguns, he moves into position to fire at one of the groups. Because taking them out is what one needs to do in this mess, right?

<FS3> Endymion rolls Piloting: Good Success.

Kids. Kelsey's hands tremble off the controls and she grabs her helmet for a moment, Randy able to hear some sort of muffled cry from her. For a couple seconds, the Raptor continues flying on its own before she quickly grips the controls back. There's a little shimmy to the movement in the Raptor, but she hodls her own for now and goes quiet as they fly, heading to do another loop and look for other targets, the doorgun kept pointed towards downtown.

Not yet seeing any SAMs in sight and overhearing the wireless chatter, Randy steps over to the other side of the door to look down the nose of the Raptor and spots one of the mobs. "Taking aim at one of the closing mobs," indicating the cardinal direction in proximity to the target to distinguish which one.

<COMBAT> Viper 660 has been KO'd!

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "This is Janik, Raiders incoming!"

Luc continues to fly and try to disrupt the mobs. Though having someone on his tail he spins to avoid being hit, which instead lines up the cockpit and a pistol shoots right through the cockpit to injure perhaps both the ship and Luc directly as the man bleeds a bit, but still able to control his viper. "Frak." He says to himself, trying to not crash and burn with the viper. Instead trying to focus on the fight again. Trying to help the downed raptor.

Niko's still in a turning fight with one of the initial Raiders. The Cylon is trailing smoke, but refusing to go down. Unable to get a shot, he glances at DRADIS while reversing his turn and picks up new contact. More Raiders inbound. After a quick call over the wireless, the kid reverses his turn and pulls the nose up, meeting one of the bandits head to head as it comes for him.

Things are heating up even more both on the ground and in the air! The mobs have gotten access to the buildings and are streaming into them for cover from the air support! Those targets are quickly drying up at least from the Raptors and Vipers unless they target the buildings. Which may also bring down debris onto the grounded Raptor and Marines.

Meanwhile, more Raiders close the distance to join the fight! At least two more AA Batteries are in range and begin lighting up fire control with missile locks attempting to connect with targets. Up above there is one hell of a fight going on beyound the atmosphere but a steady stream of Cylons keep coming in from every direction to join the battle.

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Ommanney, Flight Leader! We are loosing visual on your mobs on the ground! They are swarming into the buildings for cover! Watch your flanks! Over."

Kelsey hears the threat receiver ping that the guns are going active and she suddenly seems to be back with it. "Sergeant! We're diving on a gun and missile vehicle! Hunker down!" Kels sits backforward and rocks the Raptor through another turn and moves in, the hatch still open for the gun. The young pilot punches the buttons on the MFD for the bombs and swings the nose down on the ground target.

Endymion rises above the fire from the street, allowing his backseat to get in better range to suppress the incoming Raiders. Of course, that only draws their attention, and when he comes hurtling back for the new line of AA defences, he's dragging one behind him, performing some evasive maneuvers and trying to land a bomb at the same time.

[TAC1] "Chatterbox" Evans says, "Flight, this is Chatter. Im not getting out of this. Get the Captain and Corporal out of this clusterfrak, and make these toasters pay for it, you hear me Wescott? Out."

"Mob is still hopping," Randy calls out clipped. By now she's since stopped bothering with /not/ worrying her lip. It's just not something to think about when at war. Old habits and all. She doesn't have as good of a view on the SAMs and leaves the broader movements up to the ECO, which is…well, their job. Plus, it's not new information. She stays on the closing mobs as long as possible, but Kelsey doesn't have to tell her twice…yet. Randy pivots herself into the vehicle and gives into some temptation, keeping her eyes open for a chance to fire out at an angle from a modicum of cover. Just in case.

[TAC1] Amos says, "Flight Ommanney, all too aware. Position no longer tenable. Abandoning. If you can guide us to a pick-up point we'd greatly appreciate it."

At the mention of there being more AA incoming, Jason goes back to the bombs. "Hold on…" he calls out, before he turns for one of those, ready to drop the bombs. And his usual in-flight stress relief starting, as he sings, "I walk along the street of sorrows… The boulevard of broken dreams…"

[Into the Wireless] Kelsey says, "Chats, Squire. Repeat your last, you are getting out of that!-" She stops short with Amos' reply. But she's already on her bomb run."

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Squire, Hobo! Ommannry has Popped Smoke. See if you can get in for an LZ - it'll be hot! Get'm out of there. Over."

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Flight, Hobo. Sing me your status! Over."

[Into the Wireless] Kelsey says, "Scratch One. Hobo, Squire, I can't make a pick-up. I'm not configured for it! It's gonna have to be Blanket. I can overwatch, though!"

[Into the Wireless] Endymion says, "Hobo, Blanket— we're on borrowed green here but are good for pick-up. Hunting for LZ."

Indeed, from below the fighting in the air, red smoke is curling up from the downed Raptor area and is a clear signal for a hot extraction. Even as they take out the AA Batteries in great blooms of firery death, more are coming into range constantly from other parts of Lake City. More Raiders are also incoming either from orbit or from other areas near the surface. The Cylons just aren't letting up!

Alejandro fires away and misses his target as something hits his viper! Hard enough to jolt him off his target and set Betty to Bitching with alarms. Hobo's attention is diverted as he tries to stabilize things and speak over the radio at the same time! The acting CAG also peels off after a Raider that is on Luc's tail the moment he sees that Crater's viper is smoking with damage.

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Squire, Blanket, Hobo Copies. Make it so!"

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Squire, Blanket, Hobo Copies. Make it so!"

[Into the Wireless] Luc says, "Hobo, Crater. Still breathing, but the cockpit is damaged and getting covered in red. I'm able to hold on though."

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Flight, Janik. More raiders coming in!"

Niko fires, his KEW rounds arcing out towards the oncoming Raider even as it shoots at him. No hits either way, and the two ships flash past each other in an instant. Niko rolls and goes vertical, then hits the MCS as his airspeed drops and flips the Viper in an Immelmann turn. And yet more Raiders are joining the party, diving on their Raptors. He makes a quick call over the wireless, and is about to follow them down when the radar lock-on warning starts blaring again. "Frak me…" Niko looks for the SAM, trying to turn into it while popping chaff and flares like crazy.

Endymion rolls low and to the right, veering past the last remnants of the explosion that took out the last of the AA units, then peeling back around the column, trying to get low and under some cover from the oncoming raiders while he plots a landing.

Luc follows a raider and is able to get a few shots in on it. Flying being a bit difficult but things seem to be functioning decently at least. Not giving up just yet as he continues. Noticing the smoke of his viper but not ready to give up.

Kelsey watches the SAM and gun site explode behind her and she sneers a little, trying to do her best to keep from thinking about any kids she might have just shredded. Then the whole Raptor is rocket with gunfire from a Raider. "Frak!" The pilot then looks out across the other direction, towards the smoke, and then spots Endymion's Raptor. "Sergeant! Get out and on that wing! Anything that moves and isn't a Marine, kill it!" she calls over her shoulder and keeps the Raptor at about 400 feet as she moves back towards the crash site and begins to fly in a low circle, turning on her miniguns and starting them to spin.

[Into the Wireless] Jason says, "Hobo, Superstar. Got the paint scratched, but aside from that, all good here. I see there's another battery in place, though. Want me to try take care of it while we wait for them to get our people out?"

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Superstar, Hobo. Go hot for it. I'll try to get this Raider off your six. Over."

Jason flies around after getting the bombs dropped on the battery. Still singing, still working on staying away from the Raiders. Heading for the next battery now. Package for you!

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Flight, anyone who can, give Blanket support."

Randy ducks her head down a little when she hears the Raider's gunfire. "Yes sir!" She hops back out once Kelsey gives her the order/clear. Grunting slightly, she swings the gun around and loosens her strap to so she can have more mobility, really trusting the line as her boots are planted on the outside of the craft. Nuts, just nuts. There's too much blood and sadness and anger in the air to feel the fear as the adrenaline rips through her veins. The tiny gunner takes aim at a raider going for Blanket. "Hi ho silver!" she shouts as the breeze makes her face look like a bloodhound on a car ride and strongarms the kick of the weapon as it spits out round after round. She rotates into the shot.

[TAC1] Amos says, "Blanket, Ommanney. We see you, inbound."

Niko's evasive manuevers are /nearly/ good enough. The SAM detonates well off his Viper's wing, but the explosion still tosses the fighter around and causes a couple of warning lights to glow amber on his consoles. No time to worry about that. There are Raiders /all over/ the frakking sky and the 'search radar' warning is still growling in the background. SAM is still out there, somewhre. Finding two Raiders on his tail, Niko goes defensive, twisting and turning with the throttle at the firewall. "Come on, come on, come on…" he mutters to himself, willing the Viper to turn harder.

"It's a cluster down there," Endy whispers to himself, trying to find a place to settle down where the others will be able to actually make before the ride is overrun. And meanwhile he's rolling off to port to try to make the raiders on his ass lose interest— which, thankfully, they do, giving him room to breathe and find a spot, upload the coordinates to flight. He's too busy to listen to the sound of the boar snorting in his ear. He's on comms a moment later, and already unlocking the safeties that are keeping the hatch closed.

"Still alive?" Jarret mutters as he sees the battery below. "Don't worry, we'll change that for you." Moving to drop another bomb.

[Into the Wireless] Endymion says, "Ommanney, Blanket, I've got LZ fixed in sight, coming in."

Alejandro spends 1 luck points on To not hit the ground!.

<FS3> Alejandro rolls Piloting: Success.

The shit is hitting the fan! Smoke rising up from Lake City in many places now, buildings and AA Batteries on fire. More than one Raider has been blown to pieces and crashed into buildings, spreading the chaos like a disease. Caprica is burning - at least here. But up above her skies are also lit up with fire even in the daylight as flashes of light like brilliant stars dazzle briefly and die.

Alejandro fires away and tries to get a hit on the Raider he's chasing, keeping it busy from nailing Superstar. "Come on!" But Hobo's attention is too many places at once! Viper 537 is hit HARD from another Raider on coming. It hits his cockpit and shatters it, rounds ripping through that make his controls burst with sparks and smoke! The Captain doesn't even have time to tell if he's been shot directly or not before another Raider nails his viper from behind, almost knocking him out of the sky. Salazar is hard pressed to keep his air craft under control and from spinning out to hit the ground below! He manages to do it but it's a fight, his viper spewing smoke out in a trail behind him, his hands gripping the stick hard. Thankfully he doesn't black out.

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Flight, Hobo. I'm hit pretty bad. Not injured personally. Keep it up and give Blanket lots of cover! Gotta get our people out and get out of here, Over!"

Alejandro gets enough control of his viper to try and give his wingman a little support but it's highly questionable if Hobo can hit the broad side of a barn now. His craft is in pretty bad shape.

Endymion leaves, heading toward the Tinyplot Room Nexus [Out].

KEW rounds are flying all around his Viper, but Niko's weaving and twisting craft doesn't get hit again. Yet. He has a fleeting shot at a Raider as it crosses his sights, but fails to score. He sees one of the Cylon's going down in a death spiral, so at least someone is having better luck. With those two Raiders all over him, Niko is forced to stay on the defensive and hope his own improves.

Alejandro doesn't have anybody trying to shoot up his ass, which is great because his viper is in very bad shape. But he's not pulling out of the fight, either. They have a fresh Raptor settling down onto the ground to pick up their Marines and they have people depending on them! Captain 'Hobo' Salazar grits his teeth and misses again, his whole viper rattling and whistling with air rushing in through his cockpit glass and other places. But his flight suit /seems/ to be intact and even if it's not, maybe he can hold out long enough to get back on board the Orion later. Assuming the Orion isn't forced to jump and leave them, or blown up, before they can exfil. Alejandro pulls his bird around and retargets, trying to give Crater some support. If he can even distract the Raider and divide it's focus, that's useful.

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Flight, Hobo! Hang in there! Blanket is down, getting our Marines and ECO. Gotta give them a bit more time!"

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Crater, I'm backing up your six. Raider on you!"

Kelsey continnues her circuit of the area. She's got her eyes alternating between the ground and the sky. It's damned hard to maneuver against a Raider, though, when her gunner is on the wing. She ends up shoving up the throttles as one of them dives in, her own Raptor climbing a bit to help frustrate the shot.

[Into the Wireless] Luc says, "Roger that Hobo! Will try and keep him guessing!"

[Into the Wireless] Kelsey says, "Hobo, Squire, Blanket is taking on passengers. We've got Raiders diving in, over!"

Luc firing another round into the raider and let out a satisfied sound as it is destroyed. Though upon hearing Alejandro's warning it does cause him to try and zig-zag. Avoding getting locked on. "Come on man, stop chasing my ass." He mutters to himself. Trusting in Hobo to get the raider off of his back.

[TAC1] "Blanket" Endymion says, "Flight, this is Blanket, we're off-dirt and rising."

"Woo. That's right. You go Hobo!" Luc says to himself. Going back to focusing on bringing down the enemy now that he doesn't have someone chasing his tail. Going in to try and help the others, seeing one chasing Niko.

[Into the Wireless] Luc says, "Hobo, Crater. Thanks for the help. Janik, you got one on your tail, I'm on him."

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "Crater, Janik. Roger that! This guys really likes me!"

Niko rolls and turns hard, somehow avoiding the fire of those two Raiders still wolf-packing him. And again a raider flashes past his sights — it's a snap shot, but the Cylon is already trailing smoke. Hey, he hit it with a few rounds! The limping Raider finally rolls over and nose-dives into the pavement, somewhere below. It's a kill, but there's no sense of elation. He's got a few too bandits trying to kill him still for that.

Alejandro is busy trying to keep his flying piece of shot up viper crap in the air. He can't control it as well as he'd like but somehow his guns still work. His HUD display is a frakk'n mess with his cockpit glass razed with cracks and some of it missing. To his own amazement, Hobo nails the Raider that was trying hard to fratrinize Luc's butt, firing away! Even with his flight suit helmet to protect him and keep feeding him air, Salazar can /hear/ and feel the pummeling his guns are giving as the KEW stays red hot with action. Sooner or later he's bound to run out of ammo or fuel but he's got to hang on a bit longer if he can. They all do! He turns his head this way and that trying to peg new targets with his HUD not being very helpful. Hard for him to see, damn it! He sees a lot of shit incoming for Kelsey so he tries to give Squire some support next. "Hold together, baby. Show me your stamina!"

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Flight, Hobo! Check fuel and ammo. We need to hang in here just a bit longer to get Blanket free and clear!"

Kelsey's Raptor takes several hits to the cockpit and part of the canopy glass blows out. Nope, that's a busted seal. "Sergeat! Get a pressure suit on right now!" No sense jumping right now, she'd just kill Randy. The Raptor circles the pick-up site once more until the Raptor has begun to lift and she departs, heading for a SAM site. One that is now targeting her. "Ohhh frak my life," she sighs and starts bobbing and weaving as she throws out chaff and flare. The 20mm's fire, but from distance. No telling if she'll even hit what she's trying to.

"Boom!" Luc calls out as the raider goes down. Turning to try and find a new target. Seeing someone chasing behind him, causing a sigh as he tries to run circles with Niko, as a new one seems to be aiming for him.

[Into the Wireless] Luc says, "Crater here. Copy that Hobo. Janik, you got a new one after you. Let's make them chase and take both of these guys out."

[TAC1] Petra says, "All Combat Craft, this is Orion Tactical. Objective achieved. Carriers retrieve your fighters and execute withdrawal jumps to fallback points. Hobo, time for the kids to come home for dinner. Over."

[Into the Wireless] Niko says, "tac1 Thanks Crater! Frak … another one! Roger that!"

Kelsey is a bartender. A SAM, a Raider, and some peasant with a rifle all walk into her bar. Bam. The Raider's fire hits her in the same moment the SAM explodes. Shrapnel ricochets around inside and forces the Raptor to tumble forward. Did she hit the SAM site? Maybe. But it takes a moment to get the thing turned around. Holy SHIT. She recovers it and dives down onto a road, heading out of town, flying low and slow and doing her best impression of an oversized car. There's a pain in her stomach and she holds a hand there a moment before looking down. Bloody glove. A sealant bottle is removed from her gear and she sprays it once. Twice. Three- frak it. A call back to the ECO to jump them.

[Into the Wireless] Kelsey says, "Hobo, Squire. Hit bad, personnel wounded. On our way home, out."

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Orion Tactical, Flight Lead. Roger. We are in bad shape, coming in hot, Orion. Over."

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Flight, RTB! Cover Blanket, Squire's, Crater's and my butt's. GTFO ASAP!"

Niko tries for the Raider that's diving on Kelsey's Raptor, but his shots fly off the mark and into the distance. *Ping* *Plak* The Raider on his tail doesn't miss, but lucky for Niko it's just a few KEW rounds into the body of his viper, and nothing critical seems to have been damaged. He twists his head to check his pursuer, just in time to see Crater destroy the Raider's cockpit. But there's always another where that came from, as Niko finds yet another dogging his tail.

[Into the Wireless] Alejandro says, "Squire, Hobo. Roger that."

Alejandro is pretty busy with EVERYTHING at once and he shoots like hell to give Squire support. He hits the Raider but not hard, then he's hit yet AGAIN. Hobo's viper is knocked for a loop and it's all he can do to not loose it. With every fibre of his being fighting the controls, he somehow manages to keep speaking over his coms though they crackle and fizzle with a lot of interferance for those who can pick up bits and pieces of his words. His craft is in such bad shape that Ale doesn't even try to shoot anything now. Focusing down hard, he grits his teeth to see if he can even get his viper out of atmo, which may be a bitch if it's still possible. The best he can do is try to keep tabs on his flight and make sure they get out ahead of him.

It's a crazy ride when you're hanging out on a raptor by sheer physics of a strap that could get blown off at any second. The blasts to the body rock the craft enough for Randy to slam into the side of the craft befor scrambling insid to throw on.a pressure suit when she is bouncing around.

This is the bloodiest, meanest fight Alejandro has been in for a good while! Not his personal worst by a long shot - because he didn't get shot down and crashed this time. But he's been sweating it hard, trying to hold shit together and keep his people from getting killed. Absolutely amazing that they haven't lost more pilots down here. Gods only know how many they have lost upstairs. At least the Orion is still up there! Hobo keeps his viper lifting as hard as it will go and feathers that throttle just enough to keep it from stalling out on him while it climbs. It has a hard time of it even so. "Here's where I find out if my suit integrity is still any good." Several deep breathes in case he's about to loose his air and things are going to get real chilly. But, so far so good as he begins to get clear of atmo and out into space. The stars come out all around, both celestial bodies as well as the brigtness of ships yet in battle. The hold the gravity well has on him and all the rest of his flight slowly eases and fades as they head for the Battlestar.

<FS3> Kelsey rolls Piloting-2: Good Success.

It's a running vertical furball as the Vipers burn for orbit. Niko drops back after Luc fires, trying to pry a Raider off Crater's tail in return. But he's mostly focused on getting the Frak out of there, and he doesn't hit a thing. Seeing Crater take another hit from the Raider, Niko is cursing himself. "Come on! You can hit it!" At least he hadn't keyed the mic. But as the skies darken and the stars of space reappear, he's able to breath a little easier. The fleet is still up there. If they can just get into the landing bay.

Luc takes another hard hit to his viper, causing it to shake, but still working. Able to head off with the rest of them, if only barely. Both him and the viper being in bad shape as they come along towards the Battlestar.

<FS3> Alejandro rolls Piloting-2: Success.

<FS3> Luc rolls Piloting-2: Success.

Kelsey's jump flash brings her out fairly close to the Orion. She doesn't pause ot look for anyone else, nor declare an emergency, she just brings the Raptor in slowly and carefully. Settled onto an elevator pad, she safes everything and powers down the engines, leaning back in her seat as she groans. It may have been more than one hit. Both hands hold to the seals and survival vest, a pained look on her face before she unstraps and begins to climb out. She knows where she is heading to.

Luc does manage to jump fairly well. Coming in for the landing. Able to not break the entire area, of completely crash and burn with the viper. Though the landing is quite rough. As his viper comes to a stop Luc takes a breath. The cockpit opening to show the bleeding Luc then.

Kelsey leaves, heading toward the Tinyplot Room Nexus [Out].

Niko follows the other two Vipers from his flight towards the barn at their best speed, grateful when they gain orbit and gravity stops trying to claw them back down to Cylon-land. He drops back as they come in for the combat landings, taking advantage of the flak screen to protect him and letting the damaged ships land first before he tries to touch down. There's a small bounce, and then he has his own Viper down and secure on all skids. It's only then that the kid finally lets out the breath he was holding. Back aboard and alive? For today, that'll do. That'll more than do.

Alejandro finally gets his viper back to the Orion along with the rest of their flight. /Other/ vipers swarm about to give them cover from the Raiders and almost certainly the Orion and the friggates are still thundering away like crazy with the big guns to give them as much cover as possible. No one coming up out of amto has time to look around to see how many basestars are left and where the frak they are! Some of the Raptors do micro-jumps to take then back to the Orion ahead, but Hobo's viper has to lag behind and slug it out to the last.

When the acting CAG brings in his own heavily damaged viper, Hobo slews into the tube as fast as he dares! The Orion needs to jump out of here as soon as possible so no slow as you go for the last ones in. Either he gets in on time or he'll be left behind! Just barely he slows up enough at the end and slaps down in classic Navy pilot fashion, only skidding his beat up viper a modest distance. The Captain by sheer luck doesn't hit any other air craft, or the tube walls, or anything. Down safe.

As soon as the last Raptors and vipers are able to come in, the Orion and the fleet starts their jumps to depart Caprica. Bye, bye!
