Leightner has seperated the Cylon head from the rest of the Cylon thanks to Mallas' bolt cutters and has unstrung the core opf Paracord, seperating out the smaller lines to weave into a net around the head to carry it easier. He's keeping the centurion noggin, least till he can get it back to the Orion, apparently. He's taking careful stock of the rest of the Cylon centurion poking at it here and there checking the damage on the headless metal nasty.

Reed lowers the binoculars and rubs his eyes. Giving a glance back to Leightner he shakes his head "Now what'cha going to do with that, take it home as a trophy?" He looks back out to the valley, keeping watch for any movement, raises the binocs, gives a sweep before lowering them once again.

Leightner smiles, "Head an right leg were undamaged in this one yesterday." He looks up, "Orders are ta bring back any cylon material for Intel ta study. I'm takin tha head back, see if I can talk sommone ta haul tha leg." He looks back down and takes another picture of the wrecked Centurion getting the innards and mechanisms, pulling off a piece and putting it away.

Nodding "Yea, that's what they keep telling us. But so far after we brought one back, minus a few parts, haven't heard anything about it since. Be nice to know if anything is actually being worked on or are /they/ just collecting canner parts and have them locked up in some storage room." Reed says as he turns, slumps down into the dirt with his back against the wall and knees drawn up.

Leightner looks over, "Tell ye now. They need more. Can't reverse engineer fourty years o machine intelligence development wit one busted, Canner, mate." He tilts his head to the side, "It's an ongoin thing. Gotta keep it up. Find a Jacked, try takin em alive, if not, tha corpse is fine, if not tha corpse.." He looks to the cylon head, "Well, we can find some trash bags ta carry another head, tha paracord net'll work… ju..just find me I'll try ta make it clean." Yep chunks of enemies if nothing else.

Reed nods "Yea, ok. If they are not to badly shot up. Am sure we can come up with something to tote them out of here." He stands again, looking out over the valley, "Haven't seen anything moving since I came on watch. I wonder what they are up to?" He says as he continues to look out. The last was said more to himself that really a question.

Leightner shrugs, "Not too badly shot, or shot up, even tha metal is worth it. I'm jus takin tha choice bits an anythin I can pull off this one ta keep mobile. Ye turn in anythin. Got a polless litter in me medpack, but I'm thinkin one o tha ones out thar, this ones missin a head." He moves in a low crouch, crawling towards where Reeds watching, a bar of.. food it's just food, is offered, "Calories, mate. Who knows, Centurions are.. predictable, thar deployment ain't."

Taking the bar he nods "Thanks," he says and takes a bite. He peers over the edge "The first one we came across, he's pretty bad but there is one over there in the woods that doesn't look to bad," he says between chews "Maybe the Sargent will find the time to allow us to go see if there is anything of use." After another bite "Yep, all they do is attack. Now if we could figure out from where," he grins and gives a wink "that's the key, right?"

Leightner nods, "Pretty much." He grins suddenly, "Aerilon, mate. Ye think we cleanin out Picon enough ta start here?" He grins, "What a firebase." He takes a picture of the surrounding area, and zooms in on the canners, taking pictures. Better light now.

Reed gives a shrug "Everything I have heard is that Picon is pretty well getting under control. Might be the first of many missions here," and again he gives a shrug. He gives the small area they are in a glance before looking out over the valley "At least we aren't hump'n it out there in the valley." He watches Leightner take his pictures "So what are you going to do with all those shots?"

Leightner looks to Reed, shrugging as he slides the camera away, "Tha photos are goin ta Intel. Whot we're here fer right? Observe. Ye know whot tha means. After mission written debrief." He grins "Ye have ta write out everythin tha happened in yer own words."

Having rolled up in a thermal blanket and his poncho. Carmine wakes up now. having slept with his back to the wall in his gunner's position, the staff Sergeant opens one eye and looks around quietly, taking mental stock of his surroundings before very carefully reaching behind him. there's a long moment of careful movement before Carmine rolls to the side and hurls something long and rope like across the compound. this turning out to be a 2' Garter snake that hits the ground and quickly begins to slither off as Carmine mutters incoherently to himself.

Grinning "That's what we have Sargents and Ensigns for," Reed says with a wink "They don't care much what a Corporal has to say." He gives a good natured shrug "One of the benefits of being right in the middle, know what I mean.?

Leightner grins, nodding as he looks over at the activity, and blinks, snake slithering away from Carmine who'se starting to stir, "Shure he's worken up with worse." He shrugs, "Least she didn want a cuppa." He looks back to Reed. "Yeah, I'll just keep collectin this shite, an turn it in. Letem do whot they will.

Reed turns his head and looks as Carmine gets moving. He can't help but laugh as Leightner speaks of what he may have woken up with. "Found a friend, Staff?" Back to Leightner he nods "Will do. Be nice to hear something sometimes though."

Sitting up, Carmine grunts. "Should have kept that thing…good eating on it." Hearing Reed, he chuckles as he scrubs his face with his hands for a moment, then opens one eye looking at the Corporal. "and what did you get to cuddle with last night Corporal?" finally he digs in his gear, lookig for breakfast rations half heartedly.

Leightner nods to Reed, "Keep me ear in. They need more stuff's whot I heard, they gonna try put one together from tha bits. map it all out." He looks to Carmine and grinse, tossing a food bar his way. "Here' makin room in me pack fer tha." He nods to the Cylon head he bolt cuttered off the Cylon who was in here. He's unstrung Paracord core and made a net holding the head, for ease of transport. "Pulled off tha good leg too. Wanna haul it out, Staff, walk onta Orion wit it over yer shoulder, heroic music in tha background?"

Jerking his thumb to Leightner "Doc here, even brought me breakfast," he answers Carmine and holds up his ration bar. "Now if I could get him to bring coffee too," he says with a chuckle. Looking at Leightner he laughs "Would be hailed as a real life walking and talking hero, staff." He takes just a moment before he looks back out over the valley, picking up his binocs and gives the area another scan.

Chuckling, Carmine looks at the head. "I got to do that last time we went wheels down on Picon Corpsman…damned things are heavy." Looking around, he grunts. "Give it to Fischer to Carry." Catching the food bar, he nods. "You know…13 years of eating these things and they still taste like the Boxes they ship bananas in."

Leightner nods, "Aye, I know, thas why I'm takin tha head. Alri Fish carries tha leg." He chuckles, then thinks of something. He pulls out his little black leather book and tactical pen and makes a few little notes, after opening to a page past all the other notes he's been writing down. "Even in the field, tha paperwork follows me." He closes the book and looks out for any new donors of Cylon parts for the cause.

Reed continues to scan the valley, though the grin does say he's listening. A quick glance to the book Leightner is writing in "What all do you put in there, Leightner? How much is there to write?" He mimics writing "Spent the last two hours on watch, same as the first hour. Nothing. But the Nothing is moving in a military manner and is heading in all directions."

Leightner looks over and smiles, "Write down anything whot comes ta ye. I'm usin it fer a log an observations on Cylon stuff I'm seein. Lot of it's jus crap, but helps later when makin a report." He smirks, looking out over the approaches, lifting his field glasses to scan, "Keeps me busy."

Standing quietly, Carmine rummages in his pack once more. Coming out with his long home made knife and a roll of toilet paper, the SS stands quietly and heads for the entrance quietly. "Going to scout the backside of the hill." as he speaks he jerks a thumb towards the cliff. "and make an officer." holding up the toilet paper as he says the last part he heads out the gate.

Meanwhile … out on sunny Aerilon, Kapali and Brie have been hard at work rigging up some supplies for the Cylons. To the west of the OP and on the slope leading down to the 'road' that they'd used to get this far is a stand of trees that Kapali plans to put to good use. Conserving their supplies as much as possible, Kapali has rigged the two best trees to fall by manner of wrapping their trunks with det cord to inspire them to do so. Knowing that a tree will fall in the direction in which it's already leaning, she'd selected two that had already been weathered and aged to do precisely that. When the cord blows the theory is that it'll deny this specific approach to the cylons as they attack toward the OP. In theory. It's always a matter of seeing what happens when the smoke clears, after all. But the cord is wrapped, the explosive set to go remotely, and she's marked the side of the trees FACING the Op center with a broad X of orange spray paint. In other words 'leave these two trees alone'.

The eastern side of the hill presented more of a challenge, consisting of scrub and bare rock. To be fair she and Brie spent a lot of time staring intently AT the hill while trying to determine the best way to handle the surprises out this way. Ideas like pit traps just won't work in bare rock, the theory being that canners can just leap upward out of those anyway. Short of doing a geological survey (next time: ask staff for one in advance) they rely on the tell tales of wind and water erosion, the signs of 'fresh' rock slides and Kapali sets carefully shaped charges of C4 to trigger more of the same. WITHOUT sending the entire face of the valley sliding down. Death being bad. Well death to the humans that is. It's with this last trap set, and positively covered in dust and rock granules that she and Brie hike back up the hill to the OP.

Trailing the party tht went out to prepare some explosive surprises is Erik who has his LMG slung over his shoulder as he trudges back to camp as well, he was on protection duty while to make sure that no roaming Cylon patrol happened upon them without notice. Since there was no sound of gunfire echoing through the hills or explosions, one can easily say that his job was uneventful, a good thing.

Leightner looks over at the dust and rock covered explosives experts trudging back in, and smirks, shaking his head a little as he looks over the area with his field glasses. Keeping alert for Centurions is a full time job around here. Nodding to the returning Erik, he continues scanning the area.

Reed peers down as he spots Boomboom and company going to work. Between watching the valley that is. "They've been busy," he notes, still providing overwatch for them even while keeping the valley…they valley. Oh frak. He takes up his binocs and studies the far road for a time. Right as it crosses the bridge. "Traffic, traffic on the road. Heading south. I have," he leans forward a bit more "Four trucks, and what looks like to be some kind of APC. Can't tell much more that than." He looks to Leightner "Might want to write that down, and get them to pass the word." Leaning out over the wall he calls to those outside the wire "Heads up, movement on the road, not headed this way."

Leightner turns to scan in the direction Reed calls, and makes a count, nodding as he sends the word on to the base, with the headcount and all info in Resistance format. He then continues his lookout, scanning for anything else while Reed is locked on his traffic, to check, before looking back.

Following Erik up the hill, Kapali takes a moment to dislodge some of the rock dust from her gear by means of a brief pat down and using one hand to dust it off of her helmet before she ducks through the opening and heads into the OP. A nod of thanks is aimed at Erik for keeping a watch of herself and grins at Brie as she moves inside the sardine-can sized space and edges toward the first open space unclaimed and sorts her gear out again. "Are they turning this way or sending any cylon scouts up the hill to sell us cookies?"

Brina has been doing her job, just keeping watch. Her rifle is held close to her body and her attention is held firmly before her, her gaze swept in an arc from one side to the other and back repeatedly.

Stepping into camp, Erik was going to his pack to grab some quick chow but after pulling the package out, he freezes in the preparation when there was an update that a small convoy was heading down the road. He doesn't rush to get prepared for a firefight though since it doesn't appear to be heading towards them but food is on hold for now.

Brina has been doing her job, just keeping watch. Her rifle is held close to her body and her attention is held firmly before her, her gaze swept in an arc from one side to the other and back repeatedly. To say she's glad they are heading back is an understatement.
Kapali has partially disconnected.

Not lowering his binocs, Reed says with out looking "Can't tell Boomboom. None have turned this way," he pauses "Wait one, yea, one of the trucks is stopping. Looks like," there is a long long pause. The second hand sweeps by "Yea, one, no three. Change that, four canners disembarking." He continues to study before him "Frak, lost sight of them." With out looking over "Can you see them, Leightner? I've lost them."

<FS3> Leightner rolls Alertness: Good Success.

Once the next update is given, lunch is on hold indefinitely for Erik as he puts the package away and quickly prepares his weapon, looking it over and making sure it is loaded. Then he moves, a bit quicker now and with some sense of urgency, to another defensive position at the camp to help cover another area to see if he can help pick up the missing Centurions.

Leightner peers through his glasses, "Nah, I gottem, coming this way, yeah," pause "no, nono. Alright cluster o trees at 192? Went behind thar an lost em." He lowers his glasees, "Comin here, fer sure. Wakey wakey."

Coming back into the OP as Reed calls on the radio, Carmine makes double time for his gunner's nest. bear crawling the last 30' so as not to be visible outside the wall, he slides into place behind his lmg and Racks the slide, getting prepped.

"Staff, I've rigged trees on the west slow to fall and block the easiest route up the hill," Kapali explains as she studies the approach to the OP, speaking into the com as Carmine double times it to the gunners nest. "And rigged what should be a good rock fall on the east side of the slope. The mines are here," she points forward to the steepest part of the incline to the OP, "in staggered formation. That'll cause more of a rock slide but it should be the only 'easy' way up the hill once the other surprises go off."

As Leightner calls out the compass he shifts a bit, sweeping "Frak, no telling where they went. Trees there along the river are thick." He gives a glance to Leightner "Yep, time to roll out of those comfy beds." Reed reaches over to make sure that his rifle that he set beside him is still there. "If they were heading into those trees, they will be heading this way."

Hearing Kapali, Carmine calls back to her just loud enough to hear without the sound bouncing off the backdrop and travelling down the hill to the trees. "Good work Corporal. Don't trigger anything until you know you can take a few of them out with a blast." Even as he speaks, he refrains from takign his eyes off the moving toasters below. Fishing in a vest pocket for his chewing tobacco at the same time.

<FS3> Leightner rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Reed rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Carmine rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Brina rolls Alertness: Success.

"Roger, Staff, wilco," Kapali replies, moving into position so that she can see one side of the OP to try to ensure that no cylons sneak up on the OP and turns this lovely villa into a place to roast humans. Lets not.

Leightner keeps a tense lookout, looking, searching for the centurions, keeping silent as he tries to clarify where the frakkers got to. He's making that 'looking hard' face of an exaggerated squint.

The binoculars are set down and the rifle is picked up. "Two toasters on the east, one straight up the middle," Reed calls out and readies his weapon and settles his cheek on the stock. He is aiming to the front since that is where he was doing the observing from.

Leightner pivots to take aim and clarify a target come here, little Canner.

Taking position in one of the machinegun nests, Erik has set up his LMG on a tripod mount and is now waiting for the Centurions to appear in his line of fire, settling in under the camo position. Nerves of steel has him sitting there passively and waiting, no fidgeting movements or impatience.

O'Connell is quiet as death, her expression grim. This is starting to turn her stomach and that sick feeling doesn't go away upon hearing Reed's announcement. She takes aim when he does, rifle pointed in that same direction.

Muttering softly under his breath, Carmine growls. "Dear diary…For christmas, I want a Frakkin' scope." Keeping an eye out, he pauses and nods keying his mic with his forearm he speaks quietly as he acquires a target.

[Into the Wireless] Carmine says, "Copy on positions. Wait until you have definite coverage then open fire."

Rock chips fly in front of Reed as the single canner shoots at him. He doesn't flinch as he returns fire right back. "First rule of warfare, someone tries to kill you, you try to kill them right back." Reed settles his weapon again and sights on the approaching canner.

Leightner opens fire, and sparks some metal off-Zing! Hit in the arm, ow that did in fact hurt, but, looking around, he's the only medic so he focuses on working it out after these things are down.

Kapali ducking down beside the wall that surrounds the OP, seeing the incoming rounds impact against the walls of the OP instead of hitting something vital, like maybe hitting her in the face or something. "I'm a leaf on the wind," she mutters and sees her shots hit absolutely nothing of use. But as far as exercises in futility go, this was a total win.

Pausing after his initial burst, Carmine growls as he opens fire once more. Hearing Kapali, he calls out. "Don't even think of being a Big damned Hero Corporal!" before opening fire again

Focusing on the Centurion that has come into his field of fire, Erik waits, then waits until he hears his comrades open up with their weapon. His own roars to life, sending a stream of bullets down at the canner. Three bullets hit though not enough to down the Cylon, which means that the Lance Corporal will let another series of bullets fire out of his LMG.

Kapali wears, briefly, a big grin as she sets and takes aim again, or maybe takes better aim this time, tough to tell until the smoke clears. "Roger that, Staff. Want me to trigger any of those surprises?"

Firing off a burst at one of the Cylons, Fischer grimaces momentarily, before he readies for the next shot, prepared to duck down as soon as it's done.

Kostas has been here, really—but a handful of marines against a handful of cylons, no contest in her opinion. She fires at the next canner to enter the sight of her weapon, though at the mention of triggering, she comments, "Ya do that now, we lose 'em, somethin' t' keep in mind." Still, she seems content to allow the Engineer and senior NCO to make the final decision.

Hearing Kapali Carmine calls back "For 3 of them? Frak no! wait until we get 30 of them then you can get trigger happy." Shifting his attention to the remaining Canner, Carmine swivels and fires a burst in that direction

That's twice he's been shot at, that's twice he's been missed. It's the luck charm he carries. Reed rises up and and steadies on the canner "Give it to em, guys, give it to em." He doesn't look around, there are others covering their own sectors.

Kostas flashes a grin of approval at Carmine's response, perhaps adding to the list of fellow marines who've known starvation rations for body and equipment. She doesn't take her eyes from her target though, firing off another round at it.

Kapali makes a quiet sound that's more surprise/annoyance than pain. She slaps a hand over the impact site and honestly grumbles, "Yo. Leightner, I've sprung a leak," she mutters and adjusts her hold on her rifle and counts her rounds mentally while still taking aim.

Leightner slides off the firing line having seen Kapali taking the shot and thats why his aim sucked. Really. He moves to the Engineer, crouched, hands clapping together, rubbing together with a whiff of alcohol as gloves spring up on his hands and he moves in to treat.

Sighing, O'Connell shakes her head. "What the hell is wrong with me," she grunts. At least there's still that one target to take out her frustrations out on.

[Into the Wireless] Reed says, "We still have a lot of time here, short bursts, conserve ammo."

Ducking away from the incoming shots, Fischer sees the one he was in a duel with has gone down. Looking around once more, before he turns to fire at the last one. "What's this, folks? Combat or a frakking telephone conference?" Squeezing the trigger again now.

The canners fall, the one in the front still stands though. In the midst of all the firing there comes a strange sound. One that should not be in the middle of a fight. It's coming from over near the command bunker. A soft sound though it has that quality that carries all the same. Meow, meow. It's a little black kitten, seems to have wandered into the camp, either looking for food or safety or both.

Two more canners break from the trees. Way far from the Op. Right at the 450 meters. They move forward, steady and cautiously, headed for the OP.

For a moment, Kos' attention is divided. Deep in the dark reaches of her cold bastard heart, there is a soft spot for warm fuzzy creatures. No really, it's on her +sheet and everything. However, her Dogs and other marine asssortments come first, and she keeps her attention on that tin bastard that just Will Not Go Down, firing off another burst.

<COMBAT> Opcen-1 has been KO'd!

From his vantage point in his gunner's nest, Erik catches sight of two new Centurions that are now on approach though it seems like they are not on a full run. "Contact, two more canners incoming!" The Lance Corporal calls out as he swings his LMG towards one of the Canners that are farther away, for now he doesn't open fire, seeing that the range is too far but he keeps aim, waiting to unleash hell.

Reed wastes no time as he switches targets. Besides it's an easy switch after the canner is down. The range is long and he takes his time. Setting his sights on the distance canner.

The call goes out that Leightner is hit, and Kalum moves in a have crouch / crawl to reach Leightner. He slides in next to the Medic, and takes a glance at his left arm. "That's a light wound Leight," the PJ says quietly, and pulls a really simple wrap from his bag. He quickly pulls it around Leightner's arm, and then ties it off tight. "No morpha for you… You'll live." He then pats the man on the back, and pulls his rifle up into position so that he can cover Leight while he works on Kapali.

Leightner works on Kapali, leaning into her, opening her armor and reaching in with his fingers, a styrette numbs the area and after a bit he pulls back, lips pressed together, "Clear." He says, at least it's not bleeding out. His arm, however, is bleeding, and as Kalum works on it, he nods, "Gotcha mate." He then turns to try to see what's happening with the fight.

Kapali watches the canner she was aiming at fall to the side along with the others they've turned into slag so far. She doesn't actually grumble at Leightner as he works, just goes back to sighting on the hill side while he does his work. She arches a look at Leightner, "Just slap a bandage on it, right?" suggested with a grin. After all, he did pack the bandaids.

Kostas purses her lips in thought as the canner nearest finally goes down, eyes narrowing as she shifts her sight towards where the incoming two are approaching. She takes a moment to anticipate, then fires.

Leightner sights, lines up, fires, the bullet streaking into the guts of a Centurion as it goes down with the other combined fire, he nods to Kapali, "Just slap a bandage on." He agrees, resighting.

Even before the two new Centurions can fire one falls in a heap. The other one speeds up, covering the ground at a good clip. It brings it's own weapon to the fore, trying to shoot at the Op in general.

And still Carmine holds his fire. Having a feeling that bullets were going to be needed later he calls out. "If you can't hit from that distance don't try! save ammunition."

Kostas spares a flicker of her gaze for the CP, though she can't spare too much in the way of searching. Instead, her vision follows the gap that her target is closing between them, and she fires again.

The Pararescue Jumper stares down his sights on his gun, and takes aim at the next approaching Centurion. It's a decently long shot, and he props his elbow on his knee. He breaths out slowly, opens his right eye wide, and then pulls the trigger once. The GMAR kicks lightly in his hand, and a single bullet is sent downrange.

The kitten's meows come more insistent as it tentatively takes a step at a time towards the Marines.

Kapali aims a grin at Leightner and helps herself to a bandage, sets it in place and secures her armor again before moving to one knee and taking aim again. The approaching centurions are counted, again, as she snugs the rifle once more into place, her cheek resting in place before she opens fire again.

The mewing can be ignored for only so long and Brina does the one thing that could very well be the end of her. She runs towards the kitten, intent on saving the poor little thing.

Seeing one of the Cylons in the distance go down, Fischer stands up a bit further to get a good firing position. Time to bring that thing down before it can do too much damage.

Leightner sights carefully, firing, sparking the Cylons left hand, gun.. thing.. he settles in for another shot as the thing approaches.

The range is great, maybe that's why Reeds round did no damage. He sights in once again, taking care to prop the weapon on the sandbags that line his part of the wall.

Sighting along his weapon at the thing, Carmine tenses his finger on the trigger, waiting as he murmurs. "A liiiittle closer…"

"Hold the fucking line, Corporal," Kostas snaps her expression damn near unbelieving as she sees one of the marines breaking ranks and abandoning post to go to the kitten. Her tone is clipped, and she turns back to her target, firing again, not waiting to see if O'Connell will violate orders as well.

Kalum winces as he watches his bullet strike the Centurion square in the middle of the chest, and the Centurions armor simply dents. "Gods damnit…" He murmurs darkly, and shifts forward on his cover — resting the muzzle of the rifle on the rocks in front of him. He focuses in on the Centurion again, and attempts to shoot it in the same spot in the chest once more.

Brina stops and turns around, giving Kostas a cool look. She takes her position again but it should be easy to tell that she's pissed off about having to leave the poor kitten to possibly be killed.

To bad we can't melt one of those things down and use it to line our bullets with," Kapali mutters and sets herself again, continuing to take aim and firing as long as the cylons are up and running. She hears the sound of the kitten, of course, she isn't deaf, but it's a kitten, it's small, harmless and most likely the cylons aren't in the business of kills small defensless cute and cuddly animals. Especially when there's humans to kill instead.

Erik continues to hold his fire, conserving his ammo and waiting for the Centurion to come into range. He watches on as the others with longer ranged weapon take their shots, the canner taking hits but still coming at them.

Leightner tilts his head, as he detects Brina taking a shot, and Kalum is moving. Letting the man do his job, he focuses on the last one, aiming carefully.

"Reloading," Reed calls out as he falls down behind the wall. He is digging into his ammo pocket, pulling out a clip at the same time he releases the nearly empty one that's in his weapon.

The Lance Corporal gets into position again but gets shot anyhow, and the impact of the bullet against her helmet. It rings her bell and sends her on her ass, head spinning.

"Frak, man! Can't I even take a shit for two minutes!?" Yes, there's Private Mallas, cursing as he jogs back in from the rear of the outpost. One hand is holding up his unfastened trousers, then other with a tight grip on his rifle. He hits the outpost wall and lifts his rifle. Needing both hands for his weapon, the trousers slip down to flash some CMC-issue boxers. He's too busy aiming to worry about it.

Fischer frowns as the Centurion is still up there. Knowing he has very little left of his magazine, he empties the rest of it towards the standing Cylon.

The attitude will be dealt with later, Kostas returning to her firing once the order is obeyed. She keeps her eye on that pesky target as her shot goes wild, cursing under her breath as she sees O'Connell go down, and returning fire to the cylon.

Smiling quietly as the thing gets into a decent range, Carmine speaks softly. "Hello." and eases his finger through the pull of the trigger until the thing begins to buck.

Kalum watches as his bullet punches a hole right through the Centurions armor in the exact same spot he just struck. A thin vicious smile spreads across the PJ's lips, and he lowers his rifle. The Centurion fires, and Kalum hear's the distinctive dull thud of a bullet hitting armor. He glances over and sees Brina tumbling backwards, and slides down off the wall. He heads over towards the Corporal, and slides in next to her. He kneels over her, and leans in close — unhooking her helmet so he can slide it off carefully. "Can you hear me Corporal?" He asks, looking into her eyes.

Kapali angles her head to the side as she sees the results of the most recent barrage, adjusts her aim again and keeps shooting.

Brina shakes her head and looks at Kalum, her expression faintly baffled. "I'm fine. Head hurts, though." She allows for Kalum to assess her but then moves, looking out to see if they have anymore targets. "Thanks."

Leightner fires, the bullet pinging off the head armor. Then the Centurion goes down in a hail of bullets and he looks about for more, keeping down.

Watching the Canner go down, Carmine nods, "…Goodbye" Going back to scanning for Hostiles he absently pats himself down until he finds what he was looking for. pulling a Frag grendage from it's pocket, he sets it within easy reach where he knows he can get to it without looking. reaching into another pocket, he comes out with a cannister Grenade the Red markings on the cannister revealing it to be Thermite, he sets that within easy reach as well.

The last of the canners falls in a hail of fire from the OP. So many it is hard to tell who's hits are who's. Pieces fly off, it's head goes tumbling down the slope. All the while the kitten meows. And lo, here comes another, just the same as the first but for the three white toes that adorn it's paws.

Reed peers over the wall as the firing slows "Interesting," as he watches the head roll on down, finally stopping in a scrub bush, facing the Op of all chances.

Kostas scans the area once the centurion goes down, partially in thanks to the hail of auto bullets that can be unleashed once it finally gets into range. She crouches down to reload, taking stock of the injured as well—nodding once as she sees Kalum taking things in hand for the latest. Her expression is still grim, stony. "Status?" she calls out. She glances at the kittens again, though is reluctant to move until she's sure there's a lull.

Mallas's one shot bounces off the Centurion's chest armor, while the Cylon return fire kicks up dust from the outpost wall around the grunt. As soon as the Centurion is down and it's clear there is no sign of any others, the Private takes a moment to secure his pants. He cocks his head as he finishes zipping up, looking dubious. There are cats out here somewhere? What the frak.

"Got a headache but am fine," Brina announces to the Ensign. She looks a bit green around the gills, a little nauseous thanks to the concussion, but she appears to be mostly functional despite the fact that her head hurts and her stomach isn't exactly settled.

"Hold still, Corporal…" The Petty Officer orders gently, laying a hand on Brina's shoulder to keep her from moving. He pulls a flashlight out, and quickly shines it in each of her eyes. His lips purse together for a moment, and then he holds up a finger. "Follow my finger please." He then moves the finger up and down and side to side. He watches the Corporal's eyes carefully, and then nods again. "You've got a concussion, Corporal. No pain killers for you. Especially anti-inflamatorys. That'll frak your head up right good." He reaches down, and picks up her helmet to hand back to her. "Drink some water, take a few minutes, but you're good to keep going for now. We'll talk more on the Orion."

Without taking his eyes off the surroundings, Carmine calls out. "All clear and right as rain up here, sir. Ammo counts?"

Frowning as he misses, but nodding a little as others hit the Cylon, Fischer moves to reload his rifle. Looking to see the kittens, he whipers in their direction, "Pssssssst… Good kitty…" Listening to Kostas' words, he shrugs a little. "Alive," he remarks, voice kept carefully neutral. "Unwounded…" he adds. Looking around again now.

Reed calls out "Three mags in standby, one in the riffle, Staff." He says as he begins to move around and check everyone. First is Brina "You ok?" He asks but not wanting to interfere with the work by the medic. He looks over to Kapali "And you, Boomboom, you good to go?" Then to Leightner "And you, you good?"

Brina manages to follow the finger and all that and the quick neurologic tests Kalum gives her should fall within mostly normal perimeters. "Yeah, yeah… hey. Cat! Someone get the cat. We can't leave it out here. We can find a family on Piraeus to give it to or something!"

As there don't seem to be any immediate approaches on the horizon, Kostas relaxes her stance a bit but not her guard. "Beckwith, pick 3 t' remain on guard, lets let th' others have a bit of a breather while we can. Get a snack, take a piss, all that jazz. If someone can, get th' critters in an empty box 'r something, if they'll stay." Silvia shakes her head slightly.

Leightner looks to Reed and nods, tightly, he's fine, arms bandaged and bound. "Present." He says simply, taking the time to reload. He blows out a breath.

Nodding to Kostas, Carmine calls out. Fischer, Mallas, you're with me. the rest of you, sack out or adopt a cat. Good eating on a cat." That done, Carmine fishes about for his range finder.

"Meow, meow," the kitten cries as it sits in the dirt looking at the men and women in the Op.

"Don't blow this off, Corporal…" Kalum warns gently. "Repeated concussions like this can lead to a lot of problems down the road, from changes in personality to increased risk of suicide. So, we'll want to make sure we give you the best treatment we can on the ship. You've got a long war ahead of you." The Petty Officer then lets Brina go, and heads over towards Carmine. "I'll go on watch, Staff…" Says Kalum, volunteering.

"Five!" Mallas calls out in answer to the ammo-check order from Carmine. He looks disappointed to have missed all the action, and largely indifferent to his wounded comrades. The order about the kittens has Mallas peering over the barricade towards the mewing sound, frowning to himself. He shakes his head, not volunteering to go get them. He breaks off watching the kitten when the Staff Sergeant calls again, gathering his rifle and moving over to him as ordered.

Leightner moves back from the line, turning to head to the back. Yeah, he did get shot, yeah, it does hurt. Yeah, it's time to rest. Frak.

Well, if no one else is going to, Kos will go over and try to retrieve one or both kittens. She doesn't chase, her eyes still alert for other stuff, instead making the little tsking noises that cats seem to light, and crouching down. Letting them come to her, if they will. Hopefully there's a box or a bag somewhere with their gear.

Kapali may or may not be answering to the adopted nickname but she checks her gear and sets to counting her ammo, "Good to go," is her reply while volunteers are being called up to remain on guard but enough people volunteer before she can get to it. Or are volunteered. She eyes the cats but cute and cuddly isn't exactly her thing either so instead: "Sir, I'd like to check the mines again, just to make sure nothing shifted in the night." Rocks. Critters. Wind. Stuff.

Once he understands what Carmine was telling him to do, Mallas moves off to take his place on watch. He scans the terrain below for a moment, then seeing nothing he looks back inside the OP. Kostas' kitten wrangling gets a smirk and a quip from the Private. "You sure they're not skinjobs, sir?"

Leightner moves to the back of the CP, settling down, pulling out a food bar,and opening it, starting to eat. yeah one bullet and he's lost all his happy thoughts and looks tired. pfft.

Kostas picks up the two little fluffballs and clambers back to the main group in time to hear Kapali's question. She eyes that chest wound dubiously. "Yeah, a quick one though, an' someone else's goin' with ya. Then you need t' rest, until we in action again." She glances skyward for a moment, chewing her lip in thought. 24 hours…well, something tells her it might be longer. She arches a brow at the Mallas. "Wouldn't that be the shit, Private?" she answers. "When we get back we c'n see if they c'n mind link with Knox." Then she starts looking around for likely targets to deposit one kitten or the other to while she looks for some sort of containment for them.

Fischer goes quiet again, just listening to what's being said, with a grimace. Checking over his weapon once more, he looks out there, not doing much more than just looking around.

Reed has just slumped down in his fighting position. He pulls his helmet down a bit, covering his eyes as best he can. His rifle is laid across his lap, lets stretched out in the dust and the spent shell casings. No matter, sleep is taken when one can get it.

"Aye sir," Kapali replies and as she settles her pack on her shoulders and nods, it goes without saying that she'll be quick about it and casually kicks at Reed's boots. "Come on, Chuckles," and heads out of the OP to go check the mines.

Mallas laughs at Kostas' response, a heedless humor that might recall the days before life in the Colonies involved mortal combat against an endless horde of stompy silver robots. He's still grinning in amusemnet as he turns back to his job, watching and waiting for those very same robots to return.

Leightner folds into the corner, settling down to sleep as best as possible. Going into that light sleep for combat situations like this one.

Carmine for his part just continues to scan the area with his range finder. making notes of Kapali's and Reed's positions.

Pausing in his scanning Carmine sets his Range finder aside calmly and keys his mic, speaking quietly into the radio.

[Into the Wireless] Carmine says, "Movement, both sides. Bearing 093 and 255."

Reed continues to catch what sleep he can, while he can. The dirt of the OP clings to every inch of him, his face a bit blackend by all the gunfire he has done. There is even a snore or two in there.

Leightners legs jerk at the sound over the Comms and he starts, grunting quietly in the back, coming up to get to the front. ugh. He's coming

Mallas looks out over the barricade, rifle at the ready. He seems to be on the job, for once. Or maybe he's just expecting more Cylons to show up since they offed the first group. His scanning stops abruptly on the wooded area to the west. "Hey Sarge," he calls towards Carmine. "Looks like we got some in the woods over there …" He hears Carmine's voice over the radio and turns to look back over his shoulder, noting the other group, and squinting his eyes. "Looks like four each."

Kalum sits up on top of the wall with the rest of the watch, his rifle in hand, and he stares through his scope down into the woods below. He flicks the weapon back and forth searching for any sign of movement, and he finds it. His eyes go wide for a moment, and the SpecOps soldier drops back over the side of the wall into cover. "Wake it up gentlemen, it is about to get rather sporty out there." He says darkly, and then slinks back up into a position where he can aim down at the approaching enemies.

Reed takes a deep breath and clambers up to this feet. He's on the west side, facing the woods, and thus lays his weapons on the sandbags "What you have," he asks who ever it on his right.

Having caught some much needed shuteye, Erik was eating his packaged MRE when the call to wake was passed through the camp and he finishes off the square brownie that was left. Rising to his feet, he moves quickly to grab his kit, as it seems like another potential firefight may be on the way.

Moving up in the trees, the canners must have gotten a bit smart for they are using the trees as cover. The ones from the east, the river side, as soon as they break cover begin to dash across the open space, heading right for the OP.

Kostas having secured the kittens elsewhere, hopefully somewhere out of the way where they can't get out, Kos has been taking it easy and monitoring things. Once she hears the traffic, she pops to, and moves from her spot glancing around to see if Cassidy and Kapali are back yet.

[Into the Wireless] Kostas says, "Kapali. Wait until when and if canners are closing in t' the red zone, if they do then blow yer stack. Be mindful, engage yer brain before th' detonator."

Lleufer has been catching a little sleep himself, curled up against a boulder with a grey blanket pulled up over to stay warm in the chill of the night. He begins to rouse at the crackle in his radio com and someone going around to wake them up. Ynyr rubs his eyes and pushes the blanket off to check his helmet is secure before he shifts his weight to sit up somewhat more to have a look around, hands going to the rifle hanging off of his combat vest. This he lifts to lay on the sandbag, setting up his firing position.

Kapali high tailed it back into the shelter after checking the mines and left Reed to sleep in the dirt, not the same as a dirt nap of course but she's made sure that everything she's rigged exactly the same way when she first set them in place. She checks her ammo as she replies.

Kalum lays on the wall, and watches the Centurions approach. He stares down the scope of his GMAR, and takes small measured breaths. He flicks his rifle to three round burst. He waits for the Centurions to draw closer, and keys his radio. Once the Centurions are in range, the Petty Officer picks one and lets loose a hail of fire.

[Into the Wireless] Kapali says, "Sir, yes sir. wait until as many of them are in the kill zone before starting the fire for s'mores."

[Into the Wireless] Kalum says, "Pedro-1, Dogs: Find a battle buddy and team up on Centurions. The faster you kill one, the less we have firing at us later. Try to concentrate your fire."

Fischer frowns as he hears the part about the incoming Cylons, aiming for one of them now. Time to shoot the ugly one.

Moving quickly to his gunner's nest again, Erik settles in and sets up his LMG before shoving a full magazine of Armor Piercing bullets into his weapon. Pulling back on the slider, locking and loading his weapon, the Lance Corporal takes aim at the advancing Centurions. Now he waits for the call to open up, ready to let his machine gun rip.

Reed's target falls and he lets out a "One down," before he switches targets to the next canner.

Her canner still not down, Kostas continues to fire on it, minding the traffic.

"Reloading," Kapali calls out as she ducks down and out of the line of fire for the moment as she does exactly what she just called out. Reloads.

Having done his job as lookout, it's time to get down to serious business. He raises his rifle and draws a bead on the Centurions in the woods to the west, taking special note of one that looks like it's aiming /right at him/. Then all Hades breaks loose and bullets are flying overwhere. A sudden flash of searing pain in his neck, and the Mallas gags and hacks up a mountful of blood. Blood all over his neck and chin. "Corpsman!" he burbles. Still, he's up at the wall and firing.

Ynyr and Fischer let rip, firing on the Centurions coming at them from the woods, and incidently at the same canner. Lleu his the tin-canner but doesn't drop it. He leaves his rifle laying on the sand bag and reaches a hand to yank a grenade free of his vest. "FRAG OUT!" The Marine Sergeant is careful to stay as low behind the sandbag wall as he can but Lleu does have to raise just enough to throw the grenade - towards the woods and the canners there, before he retakes his rifle position.

Leightner is coming up from the back, head down, moving up weapon in hand as another bullet finds him, this time in the chest, as he staggers and pushes forward, seeing Mallas, he waves Kalum at him, "Kalum, take Mallas." He grunts, clutching the new chestwound as he lurches to fire.

Still going for the same one as before, Fischer's eyes narrows a bit now. Glancing around for a few moments, to see if any of the enemies are firing at him, he then switches his focus fully back to the Centurion.

Erik's shots pound into the metal armor of the Centurions but they keep coming, so he keeps on shooting. His LMG continues to chatter away as it spits out round after round of bullets.

Kalum watches as the Centurion he was shooting at goes down, and nods his head. His rifle is already moving to fire at the next target when he hears the cry of 'Corpsman.' He drops his rifle, which falls to his side on his sling, and Kalum starts towards the voice right away. He sprints over towards Mallas, and slides in next to the Private. "Easy Private… Easy…" He says calmly, clamping a hand on the man's neck. He pulls his hand away briefly to look at the wound, and then returns it. "That is nothing Private, but I bet it sure feels like a hundred bees just stung you in the neck and then pissed in the wound." He reaches into his medkit, and pulls out a long wrap of bandage, which he starts quickly wrapping around Mallas neck. "Tell me if I start cutting off your air supply. I'll know I've got it tight enough then."

[Into the Wireless] Kapali says, "Rigging the traps on the west slope to explode, Sir."

Kapali says this, setting aside her rifle and instead going to one knee, turning and staring intently to the west side of the slope to watch as the centurions begin moving through the woods to the west of the OP. She has everything primed and ready to go, but waits - tuning everything out but for the focus on these two centurions who are walking right into the trap she'd set up earlier. When they reach the critical mark, so denoted by the orange X spray painted on the tree trunks on this side of the line of sight, Kapali triggers the det cord and waits for it to explode and take down those trees. Four miles per second is damned fast.

Leightner fires his shot, and manages to do something to the Cylons head as it goes down, he then reorients onto another centurion, just another quick shot to the dome.

Kostas mutters under her breath as the smoke from frags and other explosions clears, dirt spraying everywhere, and her canner is still not down. She'll keep firing.

As the fire goes out, dirt and trees seem to explode by the trap that Kapali had set and it wipes out two of the canners in a flash. But two more fill in (17 and 18 from the west). On the east one of the canners goes down, but two more continue to struggle through the fire and so continue to target the humans. Another one brust out of the trees by the river and runs full speed towards the Op. (8 from the east).

Kalum finishes wrapping Mallas neck, and then reaches into his back to pull out a small syrette of morpha. He pops the syrette into Mallas shoulder on the side where he was wounded, and soon the Private will feel the pain in his neck numbing. Things will be a little more hazy as well, but the pain fades away into a distant part of his mind. The Petty Officer grabs Mallas' weapon, and places it back into his hand. "Still more work for you to do down here, Private." He pats the man on the head, and starts off towards the wounded Corpsman. He crouch runs to Leightner, and then slides in close. "Gods," he murmurs darkly, and then starts to wrap the Corpsman in bandages. "You're just bound and determined to get shot up."

Lleufer throws that grenade and wow, that baby rocks the Centurion world! But somehow, that toaster is still popp'n. It's not exactly in one piece and may well be shooting up the other canners in it's confusion but it's still up. Ynyr is a little surprised but he ducks back down, grabs his rifle and sets to blazing away at another one.

Off in the distance, well to far away to shoot at, if someone is observant, they might see a tracked vehicle heading directly at the OP alon side are two more Canners.

Mallas tries not to move too much while Kalum works on him, but he's too busy shooting at the Canners to hold still. His face becomes a mask of fury, perhaps from the pain of the wound, and he's trying to mutter something even with the bleeding neck wound. "Ares take you mother frakker …" His rifle rattles again, sending a full burst at the Cylon that shot him and is now the sole focus of his ire.

Kapali's expression is briefly a broad grin, seeing the trees explode in a cloud of dust, slivers and larger chunks before the trees give that ominous creek and slam down on the canners approaching from that angle. And then she gets shot in the left hand, or rather it bounces off of the wall of the OP and slices through the edge of her hand. She isn't down for the count, she's just busy wrapping a length of bandage around her left hand, uses her teeth to help tie it in place and goes back to work. And look, there's more centurions coming up from the west. Well, now they'll have to hop over the trees like gazelles.

Reed does duck at stone and sand explode around him as the bullets from the canners were that close "Frak me," he mutters as he shakes his head dislodging the worst of it. He has already shifted to another canner, he aims and squeezes.

[Into the Wireless] Kostas says, "Kap, if those vehicles gettin' in range of one of th' blast zones and they ain't ours, then hold the blast for those shits, not th' walkers."

"Shit, seriously?" Kapali says first and concentrates on reloading right fast. Eloquent.

[Into the Wireless] Kapali says, "Yes Sir, will do."

[Into the Wireless] Kostas says, "Beckwith, you see this shit? If you got shot w' them Tridents, take it at will."

Hearing the command, Carmine taps his mike briefly bfore busting out the trident. Staying low as he works on it.

[Into the Wireless] Carmine says, "On it Sir, Cassidy Take my place on the SAW."

[Into the Wireless] Reed says, "Copy that, moving to saw."

Leightner shifts slightly as Kalum comes in and moves to allow him access to his wound, "Popular today." He says tightly, swallowing as he takes a shot, hitting a Cylon in the head, then as Kalum finishes, "Alri, Want Kap, I'll get carmine." He says, taking in the wounded, with a glance. And moves.

Having reloaded, Kapali stows her rifle (which is to say, slides it behind her while twisting around, now that this barrage is ended) and ducks her head down long enough to wipe some of the grime off of her face, get the dust out of her eyes before watching the movement of the centurions on the slope and the . . well holy frak.

Grunting as he gets Nailed, Carmine Doubles oer for a moment, spits a mouthful of tobacco and blood on the ground and finishes readying the Missile. Leaning it on the Wall, his breathing Ragged, Carmine looks at Leightner. "One minute Corpsman…"

Kostas grunts as one of the flying bullets pierces her chest plate, but she braces herself and doesn't go down. Her cyclon does, though, so the ensign switches her targeting to the next one, unleashing more bullets as she calls out, "Hit, not too bad."

Mallas riddles the Centurion under his sights and it finally goes down. "Frak you," he growls thickly voice as it falls. The morpha Kalum shot into his shoulder must be doing it's work, as Mallas swings around to find a new target. And then he spots the Armored Fighting Vehicle headed their way, and pauses. Frak. Nothing he can do to that with his rifle. He shifts his fire to the supporting Centurions, trying to keep them down while someone else (hopefully) deals with the AFV.

Lleufer is supposed to be a pretty decent shot but man, this rifle sucks. Ynyr grimaces as he lightly hits the one he's shooting at, the tree cover making his burst strike trunks more than canner. "Damn it." He's listening to com chatter has Kostas is on top of designating their heavy hitters to go after the vehicle so Lleufer keeps firing on the one he's trying to track through the trees.

[Into the Wireless] Kapali says, "Sir, we have three walking right into the kill zone of those mines."

Kapali speaks into the com before pausing to watch as the cylons in question are continuing right into the range of the mines she's set up. "Devotion to mission objective, I'll give 'em that, they keep coming, even when there's bits of 'em littered all over the hill," and that isn't grudging respect, it's annoyance.

Kalum sprints over to Kapali now, and slides in next to her. He pulls out another length of bandage, and then snag her hand quickly. "Give me this…" He says gently, and begins to wrap the woman's hand tightly — laying down behind cover for now as he wraps her hand up.

Kapali doesn't actually argue with Kalum, just extends her left hand toward him, which is wrapped with a tied off length of bandage, just enough to keep it from bleeding on stuff, and keeps her attention focused forward. On the walking tin cans heading in this direction. "Come on, just a little closer," she is saying in a low voice, actually leaning forward to watch as the canners keep making their way up that steep incline mined with the claymores.

The Armored Vehicle that are now coming at them is something that would be impossible to miss which means that Erik's machine gun stops firing. Letting it rest on its tripod, he goes to pick up the missile launcher that was left in his gunner's nest, loading the armor piercing explosive round before raising it to his shoulder.

Reed moves up and takes the saw, after a quick check to make sure it's ready to rock-and-roll, he brings it up and takes aim. "Frak it, Staff. better knock that thing out!" and then he squeezes the trigger.

Fischer turns for one of the other incoming enemies now, aiming for a few brief moments before he pulls the trigger.

Even with the massive fire that comes from the OP the Centurions continue on and press their attack. The Missile arcs up and smashes done on the top of the armor blowing it up in one massive explosion. Mixed in with the wreckage are the many parts of a good number of canners, all dead.

Lleufer gets off a shot but for some reason his rifle jams, not firing a burst. That makes Ynyr swear and pull his second frag grenade as the world around them blows and lights up with mines, missles and all hell hitting the canners. "Go Dogs! FRAG OUT!" Which seems like a pretty unneedful warning with all else being blow up, but it's proceedure. Lleu sits up a touch more and lobs his grenade at the nearest canner still advancing.

Leightner moves to Carmine, checking his chest, and one styrette and a pressure bandage later, the gloved Corpsman turns so the man can fire the missile as he heads to Kostas. Leightner in the swing. Stripping off his gloves to have a new pair springing onto his hands.

Kapali aims a grin at Kalum, "Thanks," she says before the light from all the pretty fires that belch outward make her grin even more. "Now that.. that is my idea of beautiful," she says and uses her left hand to slug Kalum lightly in the shoulder before he moves off. She brings the rifle around and takes aim at one of the remaining canners and settles in.

Mallas's rifle runs dry, but then the mines around the Cylon detonate and blow it to bits. "Reloading!" the Private calls hoarsely, ducking down behind the outpost wall as he pulls out a fresh clip to slap into his weapon.

Dropping the Misile Launcher, Carmine grabs one of his grenades, pulls the pin and hurls the thing like a fastball before getting talked and mob-healed by Leightner. patting the man on the shoulder as he finishes Carmine waits for the boom

Kalum finishes wrapping Kapali's hand, and then pats her on a shoulder with a laugh. He then snakes his way up to the top of the cover to stare down at the explosions below, and shakes his head ever so slightly. "Well, that was only a little bit overkill…" He says with a laugh, and is about to pick up his rifle when he hears a bunch of the Marines grabbing out grenades. He just takes a seat behind the wall, and waits. No need to wast ammo.

Kostas shields her eyes for a moment from the spray of dirt/rock/fire/metal going on further down the road and releasing another burst of fire. She tries to make space for the corpsman as he comes over, letting the man do his work.

Eh, that canner turns out to be too far for him to throw and closer for others. So Lleufer grimaces, tucks his grenade with the pin still in it back into his vest to save it, then works to clear his rifle and rack another round so he can use it.

There's a brief pause at the explosions, while Fischer just remains in place, for a few seconds, before he manages to shake whatever caused that off a bit, and he focuses back on firing at the incoming Cylons.

The smoke, the dust and all the frak'n noise. When Reed sees the armor go up like a big time firework he lets out a cheer "Way. To. Go. Staff!" He leaves the saw for the Sargent and takes up his rifle again, taking aim to bring done one of the last two canners.

Erik had taken aim with his missile launcher just in case but he waited, to see if the other Trident missile they used would be successful and when it was, he lowers his. Saving the precious weapon, he returns to the machine gun and then takes aim, beginning to spit out rounds again.

<COMBAT> Opcen18 has been KO'd!

Reed has fired and then - wam. He's down and out, helmet ripped off his head and goes flying. He lets out a groan, holds his hand to his head and blood flows from it. "Frak me," Not to bad, he is having troubles focusing though. "Frak, I'm hit." He chokes out.

The last Centurion. He continues to advance. He's programed that way. The one target it was shooting at is gone so another target is choosen.

"Thanks, Leightner," Kostas manages to rasp between firing and watching another centurion go down, she's out for the next target though, not stopping. Just one target it'd seem, so it's just a short burst.

Kapali's eyes narrow subtly as she watches her rounds go no where useful. "Grenade," she calls out and sets her rifle aside, again, safety on and tosses the grenade to land near the feet of the approaching centurion. "Just die already, you hunk of junk."

Leightner moves to Kostas, and gets under her aim to work on her chestwound. A few moments work and he's done and she has a nice fresh bandage. Looking about he moves heading ro Reed, to look at him, "Alright mate, I gotcha..

Mallas is back in action, but as he pops his head back up there's only one Centurion still moving out there. His lips twist into a snarl as he draws down on the last enemy, adding his fire to the wall of lead he expects will soon end that Cylon's operational history.

Lleufer catches sight of Reed getting hit and the helmet flying. As he's been there and done that, Ynyr stops firing and pulls himself from the sandbag wall to go on hands and needs as quickly as he might to the fallen man, "MEDIC!" is shouted loudly. Ynyr gets to Reed and tries to keep him still, "Don't thrash around, hold still. Medic's com'n." Surely there is something Lleu can pull from his kit to press against the headwound until either Leightner or Kalum comes.

And there's Leightner, fast on the take. Lleufer looks at him and hops out of the way, staying close, "Lemme know if I can help."

Kalum stays down for now, and remains behind cover. There are more then enough bullets and grenades being tossed at the Last Centurion that the PJ doesn't need to expose himself to fire. He hears the cry of medic, but sees that Leightner is already on the case. The Petty Officer just stays put next to Kapali for the moment, and waits out the end of the engagement.

Moving for aiming at the last enemy now, Fischer growls a bit. "Die…" he lets out, as he pulls his trigger.

Grenade out, Carmine is back on the SAW and firing once more. double checking to make sure Reed is alright, he goes back to firing

<COMBAT> Opcen21 has been KO'd!

The dust boils up around the Centurion. His finger freezes on the trigger in his death, the rounds spraying wildly and inefectively. At last the weapon runs out of ammo and all falls quiet, save for the distant echo's of the battle growing fainter off the valley walls.

[Into the Wireless] Carmine says, "Copy Sir. We'll be ready for Rollout in 15 minutes."

Lleufer sticks close long enough to make sure that Reed's going to be all right - at least for the moment, and that Lieghtner has it under control. "I can help carry him out. You might be needed to check on and assist other folk, Corpsman."

Mallas's head turns to look for new target, grimacing in discomfort as he twists his neck. Seeing nothing left to shoot at, he slumps down with his back to the outpost wall, catching his breath. His lips move, as if he's whispering to himself, but whatever it is he's saying to himself, no sound comes out. His answer to Kostas' radio call is a half-hearted 'thumbs up' gesture. It seems the Cylons have discovered the secret to shutting up Private Mallas: shoot him in the throat.

Leightner leans in over Reed, checking that the skull isn't practured, he applies the bandage, and then Reed pukes on hims. He nods, "Aye, son, shoulda seen tha comin." Gotcha a concusson. Lookit me, we'll se ready fer movin soon, aye?" He looks at Lleufer and nods "Sokay." He smirks at Reed lightly, and strips off his gloves. vomit dripping off him.

[Into the Wireless] Kapali says, "Aye Sir."

Kapali says this after rising from the crouch she'd been in while firing and moves forward, cautiously, rifle head at the ready and emerges from the OP and pans slowly from side to side to check the centurions, one at a time, making sure none are getting up off the dust to cause trouble again. Never know. Just because they're in twitching pieces..

Kalum stays seated where he is for now, his gear already high and tight and ready to roll out. He actually digs into his bag, and pulls out a protein bar. He takes a quick bite from the bar, and chews it thoughtfully for a moment. "We really need to work on the flavor for these…" The Petty Officer murmurs darkly, and then takes another bit. He then looks around to all those who have been wounded, and keys his radio.

[Into the Wireless] Kalum says, "Dogs, Pedro-1: What are the status of the wounded. Are any in need of further field treatment before returning to Orion."

Ynyr doens't give a shit about one of his fellow jarheads toss'n up his cookies. When Leightner's finished, Lleu avoids what he can of Reed's vomit and gently but firmly helps the man up. Lleu puts one of Reed's arms over his shoulder, "All right. Gonna help get your ass out of here. If you get too weak to walk, I'll carry you, Cassidy."

The last of the Enemies down, and Time limit set, Carmine leave Erik on Overwatch in his gunner's nest Moving about to check on soldiers and get Gear ready

[Into the Wireless] Carmine says, "*Raspy voice* Leaking a bit Pedro, I'll be fine.""

"Yea, concussion. He looks at Leightner and Reed's eyes just seem to be having problems staying focused. "He then takes in the puke dripping off him. "Damn, corpsman, you are a mess," and he gives a bit of a smile.

Kostas keeps an eye out on the surrounding area, as she replies.

[Into the Wireless] Kostas says, "Redistribute O'Connell and Cassidy's equipment an' those that're hoofin' em t' lighten their load. I want th' uninjured 'r lightly so to be on guard for any patrols in particular, though we all gotta look sharp. Dunno what we gonna find tryin' to go back t' the vehicles, but don't wanna get caught with our bare asses flappin' in th' wind. Kapali, Fisher, we'll remain on lookout while folks make their prep here. Pedro-1, Looks like Beckwith, Cassidy, O'Connell, an' Mallas're our worst off. Feel free t' come have a look."

As they take down that last Cylon, Fischer lowers hiw weapon, before he stumbles a few steps backwards, and loses his footing. Hitting the ground, he waits for a few moments before he sits up again. "I'm fine…" he mutters, before getting to his feet and back to his post now.

[Into the Wireless] Carmine says, "I'll live Sir. Say the word, I'll take advance team out to scout trail out."

Leightner nods as Reed sees the state he's in. He smiles, and lets Lleufer handle Reed. man knows how to handle it, and Reeds going to be okay with some time in sickbay under the care of his favotite person. "We're mobile." He says, moving to get ready to head out, taking the head and other pieces of centurions he gathered.

From there the Marines of the Orion retured to the Resistance base and then on to Orion.
