ANVIL Landing Zone
The apex of a valley used as a landing zone for LCOL Spree's ANVIL forces.
03/07/2005

The ride into Anvil is the same every single time, but this once the landing seems to be expedited. Flying barely a few hundred feet off the valley floors, trees and rivers rocket past the Raptors as they fly up the valleys. There are only a minimum of steering turns this time before the assault Raptor arrive up that one narrow valley and are called to stop. As the four delivery craft turn, they are once again faced with large-caliber antiaircraft guns tracking their every movement. The crews faces can be seen and every last one looks grim and ready for combat. There's a high state of readiness on the ground. As the Raptors move in to park under the rocky overhang the occupants can see the deck crews in their orange coveralls wearing flak vests over them. Every single person in sight is armed. When the doors to the Raptors open, there is an open area and off to the rear of the hangar are just huge stockpiles of weapons and gear. There are young kids guarding them and there is Spree coming out of the tunnel between the two .50cal machineguns. She looks dressed just as everyone else, her rifle slung across her chest as she approaches the Raptors.

Pulling off at the turn to the final run into ANVIL, Zachary pitches the assault Raptor upwards, a second one following him into the overwatch position. As he does so, the two craft settle into position, and Zachary watches the other raptors disappear into the path, and cues up his radio.

[Into the Wireless] Zachary says, "TACCO, Buzzkill. Entering overwatch, happy herding."

Knox hops off the Raptor in all of his gear, goggles down. He's keeping a low profile here. The man immediately slinks off towards the side where he spies a map table and someone waiting with instructions. The Sergeant is off into his own little world.

[Into the Wireless] Zachary says, "TACCO, Buzzkill. Entering overwatch, happy herding."

Iphigenia is wearing heavy armor that she hasn't had on her since practically training. She has both her sidearm and a rifle with her, though for the moment she is remaining quiet and out of the way until such time as she can begin her interaction with the group of civilian ex-fil potentials.

Kalum sits quietly in his seat in the raptor as they come in to the landing zone. "For all we ought to have thought, but have not thought. For all we ought to have said, but have not said. For all we ought to have done, but have not done… I pray thee Lords for forgiveness." He murmurs softly to himself, and as the Raptor comes in for a landing drops his helmet onto his head. "So, say we all." As the door to the Raptor opens, he rises to his feet, and swiftly departs — wearing only his armor and carrying his medical bag.

[Into the Wireless] Petra says, "Buzzkill, Tactical. Copy. I or Teach will check in in 20 with status. Out."

Having settled her Raptor down in the indicated area, Emilia raises her hand and queues up her own, looking toward Zach and his bird. She's waiting quietly, looking toward the Marines in the back of her ship. Her eyes linger on Kalum for a moment, her lips tight, then she turns back to her instruments as they move into position.

Adjusting the straps on her gear, Afton moves to exit the Raptor as the door lifts. Trotting down the wing, she hits the ground and rises, rolling her shoulders and moving her shoulder straps. Her hands lift to fix her helmet in place and then she glances to Kalum. A nod is given to her fellow and then she is going to a knee, whispering something before she quickly rises and is alert once again, getting clear of the Raptor and forming up with the other PJ.

Bridget fingers her prayer beads and mouths along with Kalum as he prays. She's sitting next to him, red hair pulled into a long, low braid. She glances up when they land, puts on her helmet with one hand, puts her beads away with the other, and follows Kalum and Afton out.

Once the Raptor has landed, Chase is one of the first to depart the one she had flown in on. "Thanks for the lift." Her boots hit the ground and she's already moving off to the side, dressed all out in her combat gear, armed like everyone else, approaching the map table as well. This is why she is a Marine, all her training for times such as these. If the Sergeant happens to be looking, she'll give a nod, but she's a woman of few words.

Petra is maybe a LITTLE more tense looking until the Raptor actually settles down, checking in with Zachary as they do so. When the engines begin winding down, he unbuckles the harness holding himself in place and rises to his feet, focusing on Iphigenia's face for a moment, "Ready, Sister?" He glances around at the other faces in that particular bird, before ducking his head and stepping out onto the wing.

Getting out of the Raptor after checking his gear one more time, Fischer looks around as he moves off the craft and onto the ground. "Home, Sweet home…" he mutters, looking around for a few moments, until he spots Chase. Offering her a very brief grin, before he looks around rather carefully for the moment.

Spree walks up closer and raises her voice. "Welcome to Picon!" she yells. "All your gear is loaded up at the rear of the hangar! Arm up! We may have imminent action!" She's certainly got the booming voice to match her rank. It echoes around the rocky interior of the room as she spots Petra and Iphigenia. "Colonel. Lieutenant," she greets. "We need to get these people out of here ASAFP. Two nights ago we had reports of a trail of Raptors coming in and landing about twenty miles north of here. No hard numbers. I put out listening posts but nobody has reported in recently and we've had no luck raising them. I couldn't get my artillery up here in time but I've got two mortar teams with eight-five millimeters set up." She glances over towards Knox at the table and then back to Petra. "We need to get this done right frakkin now, Colonel. Got your transmission ready?"

Petty Officer Kalum hears that the weapons are for them, and that they could be trading injuries rather soon. "You heard the lady," Kalum says to Afton and Bridget. "Lets grab some gear, and get ready to go." He says darkly, a grim smile playing across his lips. With that said he moves towards the back of the hangar, and picks out an assault rifle. He looks the weapon over quickly, and then starts stuffing magazines into any pocket that isn't carrying medical supplies. "Aft… They got grenades…" The SpecOps soldiers says with macabre glee. "You remember when that Marine dropped that live grenade in the Raptor over Tauron, and you just kicked it out the hatch?"

With the call to arm up, Afton is moving, following the flow of new arrived marines to do just that. She is quick to get her own weapons. Sliding up next to Kalum, there is a light smirk from the woman, the three claw marks wrinkling on the right side of her face. "Yeah, back when things were a lot less crazy." A grenade in a Raptor is less crazy apparently. She stows a few rifle clips and glances over and actually takes a few grenades. "It's like a shopping…Spree…get it?"

Bridget nods, heading over to the back of the hangar with Kalum, grabbing a rifle of her own and getting all sorts of ammo as well. She remains silent, eyes surveying the area. Out of habit, she touches the pocket that holds her prayer beads.

Petra stops for a moment to reach back into the raptor cabin, hauling out a duffel bag to sling over his shoulder. Hopping off of the wing, he unbuttons his vest to reach in and draw out an audio data card, handing it over to Spree as he approaches the woman, "There's a copy, and this is everyone we could cram into the busses like sardines. We're ready to go. The Sister can answer some of your people's questions on the way back if they want, so they have a familiar face. Our folks are ready, just tell them where you need them to go. I'll be damned if he's getting anywhere today, I don't care what he brings in." He glances back at all of the fatigued individuals climbing off the other Raptors, eyeing Kalum and then Afton for a little longer than the rest.

"Take us down to 2500 feet, Overwatch." Zachary sends the order to the other Raptor, and the two overwatch birds lower closer to the deck, the Major keeping an eye on the DRADIS for contacts as they keep varying their altitudes to befuddle any possible attempts at missile locks.

As soon as the words of greeting are said, welcome to Picon, Chase looks over, seeking Fischer's gaze. Picon, home. When called to arm up, she doesn't hesitate, but she'll walk beside Fischer when he goes over. Each move she makes efficient, she's ready for combat should it happen. "Picon, Fischer. Just think, somewhere here…" just letting the sentence drop now.

Morgan pats down his gear once more, ensuring that everything is secure yet ready. He bends over at the last minute to palm his helmet while the raptor is touching dirt for the first time. He smacks the hard cover onto his head and cinches the strap into place beneath his chin. Then, he stands and move in unison the rest of the marines toward the landing ramp. Once he is outside the ship, he quickly scans the area, looking for significant points and noting. He spots the table where Spree is, and follows the others toward it. When he hears her call to arms, he quickly moves past the table toward the rear of the hangar to grab gear - an automatic rifel and pistol, and as many clips as he can stuff into small cloth pouches along his belt. When he hears Afton's joke nearby, he glances toward her and chuckles grimly. "Let's just be sure that the enemy gets the tab," he comments. Then he turns to stride towards the table to report.

Fischer nods at Chase's words. "Somewhere out there…" It's said with a bit of a brief smile, before he offers her a grin as he moves to get hold of an assault rifle now. "And by the way, welcome home." It's said a bit lightly, before he looks around at the others present now, then lowering his voice to say something rather quietly.

Iphigenia gets herself situated with what she needs. She seems inclined to go where instructed and if that's to the civilians to help them get to the raptors, that suits her fine. Doesn't stop her from being armed and armored.

"That's the worst joke I ever heard, Aft." Kalum says quietly, as he snags a couple of grenades for himself as well. "The /worst/…" He says with raised eyebrows as he steps back away from the weapons now, and tightens up his medical bag — allowing for him to run and move a little more easily. At this point the Pararescue Jumper pulls out a magazine, bounces it off his helmet, and then slots it into the rifle — chambering a round shortly after that. The rifle is slung around his shoulder, and then Kalum pulls some sort of protien bar out of his pants pocket. He opens it, and starts taking a couple bites — offering some to Afton as well.

Emilia's watching the movement and looking toward the sound of Spree's voice. She's not praying, like some of the others, but the pilot is as lost in thought as it is safe to be in this situation. Her hands keep straying over the controls from time to time, as though she is restless.

Spree takes the datacard and hands it off to a Petty Officer. "Send it. In full. Let me know when its sent." The man runs off at full speed towards the mining tunnel. Spree eyes the duffel but doesn't say anything about it. "Right now I need them armed and we're going to need to get them northbound ASAP. I have no idea what we are looking at, but nobody sent anything my way last night so my guess is that Wes has had enough. But I've got most of my Raptors out set on comms links. They'll broadcast that message to every CP and they will put it out to their own people. Hope you're right and this pays off or we're all frakked." she looks to Iphigenia, then. "Lieutenant, we've got your evacuees just inside the tunnel. Eight kids, seven adults. One of the women is about ready to pop so be careful with her."

Glancing to Morgan, Afton nods her head,"Of course, sir. That is the idea." A quick salute and she glances up at Kalum as he complains, "Didn't think you were that picky, besides when have you ever had a sense of humor? Everything is the worst to you," she chides him and slips her pistol back away, before she shoulders her rifle and glances over towards Spree where Petra is. Meeting his gaze, she gives him a faint smile and a nod of her head before she lifts her voice to Bridget. "Come on, Red. Don't have a braid to follow this time, but something tells me you don't need it." That protein bar offered to her is taken as she tears off a bite, "Feeding the worst comic on Picon is bad for your health, but I am not going to look a gift horse in the mouth." Another bite is taken and then she offers it back to the other PJ.

Bridget smiles warmly at Afton. "I'll be okay," she says, finally speaking aloud. She shakes her head free of any lingering cobwebs. "I'm proud to be here. I'll stick close."

Once they get to 'deck' altitude, Zachary reaches for the bottle of water between the seats and takes a swig from it, before reclosing the cap with his teeth. "Keep looking sharp, folks, and be ready to relay the message when we get it here."

Knox is talking to the man at the map table and taking very quick notes onto a pad of paper. The two men seem rather animated in their discussion. Lots of questions from the Sergeant and they're answered quickly. The JTAC is getting his own brief.

"Aft, you may not be the worst comic on Picon. That'd be Bancroft." The PJ says darkly, as he takes his protein bar back, and has another bite. "Having us fight each other when there is no shortage of bad guys. Now that's a bad joke." With that said, he moves over to stand with the rest of the Marines — waiting on orders to come down from Petra, Spree, or Morgan.

Petra glances back at Iphigenia for a moment, then turns his attention to Spree, "I think the Sister wants to deviate from our original plan and remain here with our Marines. Maybe your folks wouldn't mind a Chaplain being around when things get ugly, as well? We'll get your people loaded up carefully." With the statement, he unshoulders the duffel bag and shoves it at Spree, "And when this is over, and you walk into Bancroft's CP, make sure you don't forget this, Colonel."

"I'll go wherever you both need me, Colonels." chimes up Iphigenia. "I'd like to take a medic as well, if we've a pregnancy traveling."

Armed and dangerous. The term gives Chase a reason to give Fischer a brief flicker of a smile, though his quiet words soften her usually stoic expression somewhat. "You got it, Fischer." Listening to the others talking now, she glances between them, back to keeping her expression carefully neutral, wearing her reserve like a shield.

A nod and a smile is offered to Bridget before it slips her features when Kalum speaks. Afton's nose wrinkles and she sighs, not saying a word in regards to that quip about Bancroft. Her face says it all as she steps forward and draws in closer to listen to the orders. She is still working the last of the protein bar and the taste from her mouth. She glances over to Chase and Fischer, giving them both a nod.

Bridget crosses her arms as she falls silent again, watching Petra, Morgan, and Spree give orders and talk. Her lips twist to the side in distaste as the quip about Bancroft is made.

"Whatever you folks feel most comfortable with. Its your ass on the line if you want to stay, though." Spree takes the duffelbag and she unzips it to look inside. She blinks, not quite believing it. Her hand roots around inside and a tired, warm smile spreads across her face. "Hot damn." She rezips it and looks up towards Petra. "Ohhhhh how I owe you for this one, Marc." She grins and looks over to Iphigenia and nods, gesturing back to the tunnel. "Absolutely. Do whatever you need to." The LTC's radio then crackles and she holds up a finger. "Message sent, sir. Its good. All stations repeating and we're getting confirmation on broadcast to the other regional CP's. There's a lot of 'Oh shit's in the background, sir."

Jameson's voice announces over the recording, "A raptor jumped in that was supposed to be carrying myself and CMDR Faulkner, but instead was carrying my TACCO, was then immediately shot down at the exact coordinates CMDR Bancroft provided to us, by four portable SAM launchers fired by Rover units. Rover One and Two then called in an airstrike from Predator team Cowboy Eight to kill the two survivors of that crash. The survivors were cornered by Rover Two while trying to escape to ANVIL, then hijacked the medevac raptor with the assistance of Captain Emilia Hallick, who had also just been shot down by those same Rover units. The crew of that raptor *provide name and rank* are under house arrest for now until this matter is resolved. Commander Bancroft has knowingly attempted mutiny in his attempt to assassinate the last remaining flag Admiral and take control of Orion forces himself, and should immediately surrender his command to LCOL Spree, and present himself for court martial at ANVIL. Officers and Enlisted under his command are guilty of no crime if they rectify this situation without further bloodshed, but make no mistake. Bancroft is now responsible for three Officers' deaths and attempting to murder three more, in his effort to sieze command. Understand that anyone that takes action against other Colonial forces, Resistance or otherwise, is guilty of the same crimes and will stand trial beside him. We have an enemy to fight that is about to wipe us out. We CAN NOT start fighting each other."

Spree smirks and looks back to Petra. She's about to broadcast a reply when there is a new voice on the radio, and he speaks slowly, a Pican drawl coming very easily.

"Well haven't you been a busy bee, Carolyn? Do you honestly think that I'd let you just get away with lying to me? That you could just waltz people off my planet without permission?" The LTC in front of Petra stops smiling.

Emilia's looking at her radio now, her expression grim. Oh yes. She knows that voice.

Fischer grins as he hears Chase's words. "That's the way it is, yes," he remarks a bit lightly, before he looks back in the direction of the Raptors very briefly. Noticing the nod from Afton in the process, he offers her a nod and a smile in return, before he looks back to Chase, offering her another nod now.

Morgan is heading toward the table when he hears Iphigenia's request. He turns back to the small group including Afton, Kalum, Chase, Bridget, and Fisher, and whips his hand in a kurt beckoning motion. "Up here!" he calls. He steps forward and reports, "Sirs, we have PJs if the chaplain nee—-" he stops abruptly when he hears several other voices, particularly the one from the radio. He frowns darkly and takes a slow breath.

"Message away." Zachary confirms from the overwatch Raptor, listening to the channel light up with chatter. However, when the last voice replies, the CAG grits his teeth, and sends a tightband to the second Raptor. "That's a sure sign that the shit's about to hit the fan, overwatch two. Be ready for anything." he comments as he adds in. "..ascend to 4500 feet and hold. I'm dropping to 2000 to keep a watch out for ground troops."

Petra starts off smirking at Spree's response to the duffel bacg, murmuring, "A commanding officer ought to look like a commanding officer. Sir." But that amusment fades when he hears the message coming over the wireless, and slowly melts into a look of vaguely contained irritation. His eyes narrow a bit, looking back at the other LCOL to murmur, "I could respond if you want. You know the man better than I. You're in command here. I go with your call, Carolyn. We are at your disposal here."

Emilia signals to her own fellow ground raptor and indicates for her ECO to be ready even as they start to get preparation going for loading the evacuees.

Iphigenia likewise hesitates when she hears that voice, as she has become famiiar with herself. Her eyes narrow suspisciously, but there's no telling what this madman has in mind.

After nodding in return to Afton, Chase hears the call and sees the beckoning motion, the Marine immediately heads towards Morgan when.. "Frak." The word is murmured quietly, forgetting all about to responding to Fischer when the transmission comes over and the last of it gets her attention. "Look alive.." Preparing for whatever is about to happen.

Bridget's moue twists further as she hears what is presumably Bancroft's taunt. She begins to check her rifle over quickly.

Kalum listens to the transmision rather passively here, and only shakes his head to show his displeasure. He shifts his gear, and waits for orders. He's fought and killed Colonials before, and this time will not be any different for him. Just more of a waste then before.

Fischer checks his own rifle as he hears the voice on the radio, eyes narrowing a bit now. "Can we just shoot the bastard and get done with it…" he mutters as he follows after Chase now. Looking between the others for a few moments, as he waits for any commands given.

Spree looks at Petra. "This isn't a long-range radio, Marc." She taps the one on her hip. "He's close. He's frakking here." The woman slowly starts backing towards the tunnel and she takes up the radio, gesturing for Petra to get his Marines moving. "Wes. Nice to hear from you. Why don't you walk your happy ass down here unarmed and surrender like the battlegroup is suggesting, huh? No reason to make this bloody. We've got a common enemy. We don't need to kill each other over this."

"Carolyn, kindly bend over a razorwire fence and accept what you've got coming to you. Its a shame it came to this."

And then the radio goes silent. Seconds tick by… then there is something odd. One of the antiaircraft crews, both of the men, fall over suddenly. Half a second later the sound of multiple rifle reports reach their ears. The first shots have been fired and the large-caliber gun crews are already down. "CONTACT FRONT!" Spree yells and turns, bolting back into the tunnel towards her CP. Everyone in the hangar turns at once and begins moving towards the mouth of the hangar. Just a quarter mile away is the other slope of the narrow valley. Those closest to the mouth will notice a thin trail of smoke appear and fly nearly vertical into the sky, the missile speeding right towards the higher Raptor. Before anyone can even get off a warming the missile explodes against the engine and it bucks to the side.

[Into the Wireless] Zachary says, "Overwatch two, SAM SAM SAM!"

As the streak of white smoke streaks past his descending Raptor, Zachary lets out a loud curse, "Frak!" He chirps the radio, "Overwatch Two, SAM SAM SAM!" And with that, he yells back to his own ECO, "Fatso, pop chaffe, jam those son of bitches." Orders sent, it's too late for the other overwatch.

The missile slams into the higher Raptor, and it buckles over on its side, fire and flame spewing from its side as black smoke pours from it. "Watch for where it goes to land, send it's position to ANVIL for pick up!" With that, Zachary tries to follow the smoke trail to the surface to start to lay down a heavy suppressive fire.

As the Raptor is hit, Afton lets out a curse and moves forward, going to her knee as she unslings her rifle and hits the safety off. Aiming down her gun towards the enemy incoming, she stops, pausing as she lines up to shoot but redirects herself to aim down the heavy weapons incoming. She narrows her eyes and dips her head, holding her breath as she lets out a burst at the figure with the grenade launcher. "Go heavy incoming!" She cries out and lights it up.

It hadn't been long since she'd got her weapon, so Chase still had it in her hands and when the shit commences, of the explosive variety, she's down for it, already taking cover and finding the nearest target she can see as she lines her sight and readies her finger on the trigger.

[Into the Wireless] Zachary says, "Tactical, overwatch! Overwatch two is down, repeat, overwatch two is down. Searching targets now. Prepare recovery team for overwatch two, they're going to land hard."

Emilia's darting out of her raptor as she hears the explosions. She's aiming herself for the table, snagging a vest and a rifle. Not as proficient with it as the Marines, she nonetheless manages to pull it on and get herself into a firing position. She won't be shot down this time!

Bridget dives for a nearby sandbag, aiming for the enemy as she murmurs a quick prayer for those in the Raptor headed for the ground.

"Disperse, take cover, and prepare to return fire as soon as you have a target!" Morgan orders while he unslings his own rifle and quickly sprints toward a large bush.

"Frakking morons…" Fischer lets out a bit angrily as he hears the explosions, moving to the nearest cover he can find so he can fire off a good shot now. Turning his rifle's settings to a burst in the process.

"Afton, mark that position…" Kalum yells out as he sprints towards some sand bags, watching as the Raptor goes down in smoke and fire. He slides in smoothly behind the sandbags. His hand comes up to the radio on his ear, and he calls into it quickly. "Overwatch-1, Rescue-1. Do you have the position of that downed Raptor in sight? Over." Kalum calls out over the radio, and then sites his rifle in on the LMG across the valley. "Aft… Grenade launcher! Take him out." He says after looking through the scope on the rifle.

Petra swears under his breath at the sound of gunfire, lunging to grab a rifle off of the table as he growls at Spree, "Nice of him. Didn't even make us wait!" He darts for the cover of the Raptor's wing, grabbing at the headset as he does so, while looking for one of those Rover pricks to return fire at.

Knox hears the gunfire, looking around at everyone and heyanks the map off the table and divers behind some sandbags. He brings up the map and begins barking into his radio, looking over the bags.

[Into the Wireless] Petra says, "Overwatch, Tactical. Don't get your ass shot out of the air with him. Do what you have to do. We are under fire, will recover as soon as we are able. Over."

[Into the Wireless] Kalum says, "Overwatch-1, Rescue-1. Do you have the position of that downed Raptor in sight? Over."

[Into the Wireless] Zachary says, "Tactical, Overwatch. Copy that. Overwatch two, evacuate Raptor as soon as you touch down, I'll keep watch."

The shots from the artillery gun hits her in her leg, sending her down but Afton rolls over, gasping as she catches her breath. Its the sound of the grenade going off that draws her attention and the PJ lifts her head. "MEDIC INBOUND!" She calls out and picks herself up, dragging herself towards the rather bloody figure of Fischer on the ground - the first body she comes to. "Frak…alright, talk to me marine!" She tries to get a response first before the rolls of gauze are brought out and she presses against the worst of the wounds, getting a nearby marine to help her drag Fischer to cover.

<COMBAT> Fischer has changed stance to Outofsight.

Bridget cries out quietly as she gets hit in the neck, but stays where she is, once she realizes Afton has Fischer under her care. Blue eyes flash as she decides which Rover to aim at.

Emilia's focus has been here before. Taking cover, she aims carefully and squeezes off a single but rather accurate shot at her target. Even as a bullet slams into the ground near her, she keeps her expression relaxed, staying focused.

This is Iphigenia's first real firefight. Ever. She has wisely taken cover, but her shots are not what she wants them to be. Still, she tries to remind herself to breathe and find silence in the howling chaos, and re-focuses her attemmpts to bring down the enemy, murmuring under her breath in a hush, "Lords of Kobol, hear my prayer…"

Kalum ducks as a hail of fire comes in, but a shot drags across his face. "Son of a bitch," he growls in a low tone of voice, and then pops back up. There is an explosion nearby, and glances back across the Valley to try and see who is firing the big rounds. Unfortunately, the distance is to great. He then glances back to the wounded all around him, and sees Afton sprinting to grab Fischer. He looks over then to Bridget who still seems to be up and moving despite the wound. He decides to try and knock down a few more targets to make healing a little safer. He aims and pulls the trigger.

<COMBAT> Chase will attack Rover8 this turn. Options: burst

As the hard pounds of the bullets smack into the bottom of the Raptor, Gwen reports to Zachary, "We have a master caution on ECM, it's nothing major. Pound that frakker." Zachary grits his teeth and turns the Raptor into the hailstorm of bullets, as tracers race by the Raptor and ping against the glass and armor, bouncing off of it, "Got him." he comments, "Firing." And with that, he depresses the trigger and offers no small gratitude of payback.

Taking his aim and firing off a burst, Fischer is caught by that grenade exploding nearby, and showered in shrapnel. Falling to the ground, while his hands are still holding on to the rifle, he remains that way until Afton arrives. Looking up, bleeding from wounds all over, he winces a little bit. "Did I… get him?" Spoken a bit quietly, as he remains holding onto the rifle while he's dragged to better cover. "Hurts…"

<COMBAT> Zachary will attack Rover7 this turn.

Petra swears loudly as the tripod operator pulls off a wild west Sheriff Bart maneuver and nails him in the hand. Growling loudly as he tries to aim with a wounded hand, "TAKE DOWN THE HEAVY WEAPONS!" One good grenade into a Raptor, or another AA in Zach's direction, and the team is losing another bus.

When she manages to hit, Chase doesn't make a single expression change, she keeps down in the cover that seems to be working for her right now and continues the firing in bursts, ignoring the sounds of bullets whizzing past, completely in the zone now. She hasn't noticed Fischer or Afton yet.

"Yeah, yeah you got him…" Afton is busy wrapping, trying to stop the bleeding from the multitude of wounds that the marine is exhibiting. "Just need you to rest, okay. Don't move, we got you from here. Yeah?" She offers him a smile, those claw marks crinkling up. "Keep him down…I can't do more." She really can't, not like this and her rifle lifts, aiming down the range as she keeps her leg tucked beneath her. Green eyes narrow and the PJ squeezes off a burst.

"MISSILE, BUZZKILL!" Fatso's screech of alarm causes Zachary to yank the stick hard to the side and pull the Raptor out of the shooting match with the LMG as the missile streaks by and shrapnel rains down on the Raptor. "Did you track it, Fatso!" "Got it Major! Three o'clock low!" she calls out. "Frak this." With that, he keeps the pressure down on the gun, walking his cannon shots towards the missile launcher.

Bridget's eyes grow wide as the missle approaches her. She tries to dodge it, but isn't fast enough. Instead, it hits beside her, close enough that she's riddled with shrapnel. The redhead screams, the sound mingling into the background of battle noise, but the spurts of blood coming from her holey body are harder to ignore. The last bit of shrapnel hits her corroted, and she slumps to the ground, holding her neck and looking weakly surprised.

<COMBAT> Iphigenia will fullauto Rover8,rover5,rover6 this turn.

Morgan is almost behind the shrub when rounds start to fly from a machine gun toward his position. One round jars him violently, and two more rounds whizz past him in rapid succession. Although the armor deflects the first round's impact, he'll have a large bruise there. He quickly takes aim, but before he does, another round rattles through the dense foliage. Then he fires.

At least Afton's words about him getting his target gets the wounded Fischer to calm down a bit.. Staying quiet as he's being put back together again. "Help me behind something. I can help keeping their heads down…" he mutters, lifting the weapon a little now.

With the help of the other marine, Afton sees that Fischer is propped up and able to fire down range. "You just keep your head down too, eh?"

Kalum watches as the RPG guy's head explodes across from him, winces as another shot grazes his leg, and then turns to run towards Bridget. Suddenly, he feels warmth on his face, and his eyes go wide as the last round from the RPG strikes near Bridget — tearing her body to pieces. He sprints to her side, and has to hold a hand up to keep from getting sprayed in the face by her blood. "Frak, frak, frak!" He grunts, as he clasps a slick hand around her neck — trying to stop the bleeding. Quickly his training kicks in and he sees she's gone. He takes cover again, and then aims towards where the smoke trail is popping up across the valley. He sights in carefully on the man bothering the Raptor, and pulls the trigger.

As bullets pepper the ground around her, Chase ducks into a ball, managing to miss every single flying lead somehow. If she had a moment, she'd use it to check on the rest of her team, but with the continual shots being fired, she has to return or end up as a casualty. Taking a chance, she remains in cover as she shoots another burst. Gods the screaming of her team. The stuff nightmares are made of. If she was a medic maybe she'd be more help, as is, she just lets loose on the enemy. Damn genocide. "Frak."

<COMBAT> Fischer will attack Rover7 this turn. Options: burst

Iphigenia's aim is steadily improving. She has a part in taking down one of the enemy, if only a small part - and she continues to pray in a whispered hush as she returns fire. "Ares, thine wrath stirs us. Athena, thine wisdom leads us against the enemy. Artemis, thine arrow guides our bullets true."

Kalum keeps his head on swivel now as fire keeps coming in, and his gaze drifts across the LCOL. He sees blood on the man, and takes off in that direction — running in a crouch. As he passes the Sister, he lays a hand on Iphigenia's back. "Lots of bullets don't mean more dead men. One shot. One kill, Sister." With that said, he sprints over to Petra and pulls out his bandages — starting to treat and wrap the man's wounds. "How are you doing, sir."

Emilia hisses in pain as a bullet slashes against her hand, striking it and sending blood down her palm. She hurriedly wipes her hand against her pants and resumes her attack.

Firing off another burst from where he's placed, Fischer grimaces a bit at himself as he moves to fire at the same target as well. He's probably operating mostly on adrenaline at the moment, but he'll still try to make himself useful, after all.

There's a pause in Geni's praying - once more she played a small part in an enemy down, but it's a just a nick in comparison to what others are doing. She tilts her head vaguely in Kalum's direction. "Quite right." she says, adjusting her target.

As the JTAC goes down, Afton presses her rifle to her chest and getting up is what causes the shot to claim its place against her stomach. She grunts, stumbling back and as she heads for the marine, starting to bleed, she notes Bridget, only stopping so far as to check her pulse. "Frak me…" Her brows furrow and she whispers something before she dives over to Knox and begins to reach for his arm. "Hold your ass still…" She growls at him. She's just lost a corpsman and others are going down.

<COMBAT> Rover11 will use a Missile_Aa this turn. Zachary is right next to the explosion. (Knox)

"Targetting, Fatso, see what you can do about getting that ECM console back on line." Zachary calls out as he streaks the Raptor over the target area and lets loose wih the bomb racks, showering the area as he tries to give that damn missile launcher absolute Hades.

<COMBAT> Rover8 will attack Iphigenia this turn. Options: Burst (Knox)

With her rifle still raised, Chase continues shooting at the target she'd been aiming for, the bullets leaving her gun in rapid succession. Her team is going down, she can hear it under the sounds of the bullets flying, the mortars and the radio. All she can do is continue shooting, doing what she can.

Petra shoves himself back against the side of the raptor as he gets hit two more times. Under his breath, he hisses, "Remember what I frakking said, Ares. We are not going down to a motherfrakking traitor." Shifting the rifle around, he tries to draw a beat on that godsbedamned machine gun operator.

Wrapping the main wound that is bothering the JTAC, Afton sets it and gives a glance about, gasping as the Raptor overhead takes a heavy hit and her eyes stare skyward. "That's it. Frakking light em up and burn em down!" She rumbles in her chest and then she is lifting her gun, ignoring the warm numbness spreading from the wound in abdomen as she sighs down and lets loose a burst.

Firing off the shot at his target, Fischer leans back a little bit for a few moments, before he looks around for another target now. Aim and fire once more.

Petra sinks back on his ass after squeezing off another round, wildly ineffective, wincing a bit as Kalum looms over. With a wan smirk, he mutters, "Remind me to just start grabbing full bodyarmor every time I get into a Raptor. Thanks."

The missile leaps up and slams into the underside of the Raptor. Even as the large bird shudders and trails flame and smoke, Zachary turns the wounded bird into the firefight, trying to keep it aloft. "Bomb racks are down! Switching to guns. Be ready for a hard landing if we get too many of those!" he calls out, looking for an area to land Raptor in case they need to hard land and engage the enemy from a defensable position.

Kalum pulls the bandages tight around the wounds on Petra, and does so swiftly with great skill. He checks over the wounds one last time, and then slaps the TACCO on the back lightly. "Give them Hell, Sir." With that said, he rushes around to the far side of the Raptor. He takes in a few quick breaths to steady himself, and then leans out around the edge of the Raptor. At this point he lets Bancroft's men have it — having had enough of this. He depresses the trigger, and empties a large portion of his clip.

<COMBAT> Kalum will spend luck on attack this turn.
<COMBAT> Petra will attack Rover13 this turn.

Iphigenia looks displeased as she fires and misses, but nonetheless maintains her permission and focuses on on target, and one bullet at a time. Her voice raises, only a little, but loud enough for those close enough to her to hear. "Lords of Kobol, hear my prayer. Lead us from falseness to truth. Lead us from darkness to light. Lead us from death to immortality."

<COMBAT> Morgan will attack Rover8 this turn. Options: burst

Morgan spots a new target nearer to his piston behind the bush. He quickly rams the rifle through the branches, toggles the switch to auto. Bullets fly around him, kicking up enough dust to ruin his aim so that when he squeezes the trigger, his own shots fly past the mark as well. "We don't need this," he mutters under his breath. He scans the far side of the valley for his next target.

For a moment, Chase doesn't even feel the hit, more like an unpleasant sting, firing back in full burst, she's not aware she's really been hit until the stinging turns into a burn and the burn into a blazing fire. "Frak!" The epithet is terse, more angry than pained. "Frakking nuisance!" But damn it hurts! She'd never take a live hit before. Shit hurt.

Knox looks over to Afton, giving her a nod while she works on his arm. He uses his left to key the mic. "Fire mission! Shift up five meters and left ten! Fire for effect!!" He still has yet to pick up a rifle.

[Into the Wireless] Zachary says, "Mike-64, Buzzkill! We're going to have to hard land, clear us a place. I'll buy you a beer when this is over!"

Once Iphigenia's final bullet leaves the chamber, she moves back entirely into cover and steps a few feet away to snag some more rounds and get them loaded in. That's when she sees Bridget's body. A soft exhale leaves her lips…but final rites will have to wait until the fighting is over.

The return fire goes wide of the PJ and she pops back up. Afton aims down her rifle at her foe, staring down the top as she holds her breath. Her eyes narrow ands he squeezes off another round, but switches as she notes the weapon being brought up. She tries to get a bead on him and fires, hopping to catch him cross-ways.

Emilia continues to fire, glancing over her shoulder toward the others then turning back toward those opponents still. She's frowning, clearly disliking the situation and wiping her hand on her pants again, leaving another smear of blood there.

Throughout the Raptor, alarms and warnings chirp dangerously. Zachary finds a clear spot on the valley floor, and starts towards it, trying to keep the craft aloft just long enough to land in on the ground. Dirt and grass is thrown all over the place from the hard landing. "..you alright?" he asks his ECO as he pulls he extinguisher cords, setting off the halon extinguishers to fight the fire as he unbuckles. As he makes his way back, he opens up one of the storage cabinets and yanks out the rifle that are standard issue on the Raptors now and passes one to the ECO before he waits for the door to open and both of them stumble out of the craft to take cover and return fire as needed.

Kalum leans back around behind the Raptor for a moment, and then glances skyward — following a second smoke trail down. He reaches up to his ear piece, and keys it — speaking softly into the mic. Once he has spoken his peace, he leans back out, and search for another target. The PJ finds it, his vision narrows, and then he pulls the trigger for a single shot.

[Into the Wireless] Kalum says, "Overwatch-1, Rescue-1 here. Looks like you're in a spot of trouble. What's your position, and are you alright?"

[Into the Wireless] Zachary says, "Rescue 1, Overwatch 1. We're going sightseeing. We'll see you when this is over. Buzzkill— *static for several moments* We're down good. Evacuating Overwatch. Out."

Morgan's shots go wide and he glances around to spot another area of reasonable cover tom which hot take aim. He barely moves before tow shots catch him in the chest, thumping into his armor and causing his upper body to spasm briefly, although causing no serious damage. He grips the rifle and crouches for a quick sprint to a new position.

<COMBAT> Morgan has changed stance to evade.

Fischer keeps on firing off a few shots now, not really paying too much attention on who he's shooting at, as long as they're some of the bad guys now. "Die, Frakkers!" It's growled out, with an effort.

Petra growls to himself as he opens fire on one of the remaining ROvers and misses again. There might be a few choice words under the officer's breath, but he remains where he is and lines up another shot, listening to the chatter from Zachary.

Chase is a little slower on the uptake and it's making her miss her targets, but it doesn't stop the Marine from firing burst after burst.

"GODS!" Afton ducks down with with the impact of that missile, bracing herself as she lifts her head and feels her stomach drop out from beneath her. She is breaking cover as her boots dig in and she flings herself out and up, keeping as low as she can. Cries for medic go out around the area of impact. She lets out a breath, her heart thundering in her chest as her own blood splatters to the ground, her injured leg slowing her and giving her hell. She hits the ground next to Emilia first, staring down at her as the rifle is set aside and she drags the woman's helmet free and begins to assess to wind up the worst of the wound.

<COMBAT> Afton has changed stance to normal.

Knox watches that round explode across the hangar floor and he see's one of the Marines disappear in the fireball and come out the other side bleeding like hell. He drops the map, scrambles up from behind his sandbags, and runs across what's left of the incoming fire towards Chase. He slides down to the ground beside her and is already ripping bandages out of his kit.

There is an explosion and then everything turns white and then black and then the pilot is down and out for the count. She is a mess of blood and wounds everywhere—head, limbs, chest AGAIN.

"Keep an eye out for targets." Zachary warns the ECO, as they remain in cover at the downed Raptor, rifles at the ready in case there is a second wave coming.

The sound was unmistakable as the plunk of a grenade landing nearby is heard. Chase doesn't even have time to take cover before it explodes and she's hit all over with shrapnel, crying out despite her will to not do so, she curls in a ball, one thing on her mind. Amanda. She's got to fight and fight she Gods Damned will. Bloody from just about everywhere she turns, blood slick on her hands as she aims her rifle at the only target she can see and squeezes off her last two bullets.

The missle hits next to him, and Petra gets knocked back with the force of the explosion, landing in a semi-bloody lump. He manages to cough, "Oh frak me.." and hauls himself behind the bulk of the Raptor. He doesnt even try to smile at Kalum this time, just coughs again in a half chuckle, "Holy shit, man. That kinda hurt."

Morgan's dash for a new position seems to have caught someone's eye. Several bullets whistle past him, and he desperately returns fire, although without the advantage of good aim. Still, one of his shots hits its mark while he drops to a crouch behind another low bush and scouts for the next target of opportunity.

Having finished her reload, Iphigenia re-assumes her shooter position. And her prayers.

The Rover with the rocket launcher is torn apart before Kalum's eyes, but the PJ watches as the smoke trail arcs towards the group of soldiers. "INCOMING! GET DOWN!" He shouts and then dives onto the ground — rolling beneath the Raptor as he does. He feels the warmth of another explosion, his heart skips a beat, and his teeth chatter inside his head. At this point he comes back out from under the Raptor, and looks around. "Oh, Hades. Lord of the Underworld. Be merciful. We've sent you enough souls already." With that said he sprints over to Petra, and this time pulls out the morphine. First the shot is given to Petra to dull, and then Kalum begins working. "Don't move, sir. Don't talk. Just breath."

Fischer hears the explosions and such, on both sides, wincing a bit as he does. Turning his aim to the only enemy he can still see, he fires off a shot again. "We're still alive?" he calls out, before he adds, "Still one there, I think?"

<COMBAT> Knox has stopped the combat.

Just as she sets to getting the first wound patched field style, a shot pings off her helmet and the force sends the bucket flying off her head. She winces, her face turning with the shot. Her bare shaved head gleams uncovered as she ducks down and focuses back on Emilia. "Sir, I got you. Don't worry…" Those three claw marks down her face crinkle as her eyes narrow. "NEED A HAND!" Because Emilia is bleeding out. "Sir, press here…" ANd she begins to get the wounded to help her.

As soon as her last two bullets are fired, Chase falls back and closes her eyes a bloody arm over her eyes as she takes a few deep breaths, hoping nothing vital was hit. When help comes by way of medical assistance, she doesn't fight it, but does go for a reload.. you know, just in case. "Thank you, thank you." Only after the reload will she attempt to look around at her team. "The others?"

Emilia's breathing and her eyes are opening slightly but it isn't completely clear if Emilia is even completely with it at the moment. She'll press where she's requested to press because that's what you do in situations like this. But the Captain ain't really home.

Knox is busy wrapping Chase's face in a bandage. "They're fine." He barely notices the rounds prang the rocks around him, putting himself between the bullets and her. He lays her out flat and continues working at her the best he can but the guy is pretty clearly not a medic, but he's doing his best. "We're good. Just hang in there." The man lifts his eyes towards Kalum and Afton. "She's Priority Surgical, guys. We need to get her out of here." There's a very flat point to that comment.

Kalum works Petra over as quickly as he can, and continues to pull bandages tight on the worst wounds. He tightens tournicates onto various places, and does so with little mind for comfort or pain. Right now he's working to make sure the TACCO keeps living. Once he is satisfied that Petra wont bleed out, the PJ leans in close. "I'm going to go work on Chase, Sir… Stay here. Do NOT move. That is an order. You could bleed out if you do." With that said, Kalum sprints over towards chase — sliding in next to her and Knox. "Gods…" He murmurs darkly, and then pulls out a morpha surette. He jams that into her arm to help start dulling the pain, and then begins to work on the Marine.

"Aft," Kalum calls out as he works on Chase. "Radio for evac. You're going to go with these guys since your more injured. I'll go after the downed pilots. Copy that?"

Once the fighting is over, Iphigenia safeties her rifle and slings it onto her back. Then she goes over to Bridget's body, kneels beside it, and withdraws a small bag from her person.

As soon as he sees the enemy fall, the rifle drops out of Fischer's hand. He tries to get to his feet now, but only gets slightly up before sinking back into a seated position. Looking around, he spots Chase being treated, and starts moving over in her direction, mostly at a slow crawl now. Expression a bit stubborn as he moves over in that direction, even if he has to pull himself along the ground, he'll get over to her side eventually.

"Good, good job, sir," Afton intones to Emilia and while she's concentrating on the wounds, she reaches out and numbs the pain with morpha. A quick injection to the neck and then she slips the used needle away. Glancing over at the call of her name, she uses the back of her hand to wipe at her head, spreading a bit of blood. Nothing is pretty here. "Sure thing." She steps back, making a medic take over for her as she reaches up to click in to the tac channel.

[Into the Wireless] Afton says, "Evac required at hangar proper. Repeat, we need immediate evac from hangar proper. We have critically wounded."

As the sound of gunfire fades, Spree, bleeding from a gunshot to her arm, emerges from the tunnel with a stack of Marines behind her with their rifles aiming down the tunnel. She's already talking into her radio and people are running around to get the wounded. There is still the sporadic shot from across the valley but return fire to it from her own people seems to be heavy. She just stares at the blood and scorch marks and grits her teeth. "Son of a bitch," she mutters. She motions for Iphigenia to join her. "Lieutenant. Get over here." A bullet whizzes by and ricochets off the ground.

Iphigenia looks over at Spree, palming the coin in her hand for later. She makes her way over carefully to avoid gunfire and once at Spree's side inquires, "Sir?"

With her face being bandaged, words cease from Chase, she reaches for one of Knox's and squeezes it to say thanks before dropping her hands to her side and clenching them if she's able to. Riddled with shrapnel on top of two gunshot wounds, she's pretty much out of it now.

Petra nods very slightly at Kalum's instruction and stays right the hell where he is. Coughing a few times, when the sound of gunfire seems to slack off, he lifts his voice, "Colonel! Is the situation under control?" then mutters under his breath, "Frak me."

[Into the Wireless] Zachary says, "Buzzkill here. Load up the Raptors at ANVIL with wounded. How's my people up there? Overwatch units are accounted for and in good health. We'll bivouac until you can get to us. Low priority. Repeat, low priority."

Spree looks at Iphigenia and then glances back towards the tunnel. "Take my people with you, if you could, please. Get them out of here. It looks like you have your hands full but at least get those kids out of here. If you have room." Solemn, quiet words as she meets the Sister's eyes.

Kalum looks up to Knox here, and then back down to Chase. "Lets get her on a Raptor, and then on her way out of here." The Pararescue Jumper says quietly, and reaches down to get ready to move Chase with Knox's help. Once they have her in hand, the PJ will move her to the Raptor that'll be takin wounded on out of here.

With help, Afton begins to lift Emilia and get the officer back towards their seated Raptors. "Someone get Corporal Fischer! I want him on board now!" Her voice lifts to be heard as she looks to the pilot. "Sir, we are headed back." That said, she is hopping up onto a wing and beginning to help settle the woman into a waiting stretcher.

Spree then looks to Petra and sighs at his condition as she steps over. "We're good. Took a shot, myself, but we're alright. We've got him. Son of a bitch tried to walk into my CP. They flanked around through the tunnels, too."

Emilia will just bleed over her, muttering to Afton her thanks and that she's keeping it holding on which -probably- means her bandage. See??? She is doing her job. And bleeding. She's bleeding a lot. She does manage to become aware enough to say in a weak but audible voice, "No matter how hard he tries he STILL can't kill me."

Having managed to sustain only slight bruises, Morgan stands slowly when the noise begins to fade. "All able-bodied, look around you! Help the wounded into those birds!" he orders. He hears Afton's call about Fischer, and looks around for the soldier. He slings his rifle over his shoulder heads in that direction to help with moving the baldy injured marine toward a raptor.

Petra looks up at Spree when she steps over, and nods, "He's in custody then, right? You have him alive?" He winces a little and sits up a touch, just a little. After all, he WAS ordered to sit still, "Good. Good, good, good. I think I'm going to be out of it for a while after this, but we'll send SOMEONE back so we can talk. Unless I can convince you to come spend dinner at our house soon? I promise I'm a good date."

"Of course, sir. We'll fit as many as we can." But Iphigenia's first stop will be to give Bridget her last rites, before calling for a medic to come with her to get the ex-fil group ready for departure.

Fischer is still trying to crawl over towards Chase at the moment, pausing a bit as Morgan comes over, he offers the man a nod from his position along the ground, then starts the crawling again now.

Spree looks over her shoulder towards the CP and back to Petra. Blood drops off her hand onto the ground. She takes a long breath and looks over to the other wounded. "If you can get me back here tomorrow or the day after at the latest. No dinner, though. But if this gets infected, you're screwed for leadership down here." The LTC gestures for another officer to come over.

Once Chase is loaded into the Raptor, Kalum takes on look at Knox, and then motions towards the Raptor. "You too, Sergeant. I think you're out of this fight for now too." He says grimly, and then moves back towards Petra now. The Pararescue Jumper kneels down next to his other patient, and pulls some of the bandages even tighter. "Sir," Kalum says quietly looking up towards Spree, "give me a few minutes to get the criticaly wounded out of here. I'll take a look at that hand." The PJ then looks to the officer coming over. "Give me hand. Time to get the TACCO out of here." With that said, he carefully starts to move Petra towards the evac Raptor.

Petra nods slowly at Kalum, wincing as the bandages get tightened, "Frak, easy there…" With significant help, he slowly rises to his feet and finally nods at Spree, "If you have Bancroft in custody, we'll make a rain check out of it. But we'll be back and bring back everyone we can stabilize. Soon, though." With that said, he simply nods at Kalum and grumbles, "I'm telling you. Full frakking body armor."

Morgan steps closer to fischer and drops to one knee. "Soldier, there's no need," he objects, speaking quietly. "We'll get you to a raptor and out of here. Lie still." Then he glances toward the hangar and calls, "Medic! Get this man aboard!"

Fischer keeps crawling for a few more moments, pausing a bit as he hears Morgan's words. "I don't feel too well, sir…" he offers a bit quietly now, before he rolls over on the side at the moment. Looking to Morgan, he mutters something quietly to him now.

Helping to coordinate those being brought onto the remaining Raptors, Afton gives a look over to the one being loaded with the TACCO and other injured. Seeing Fischer still being escorted, she narrows her eyes and then sighs. She moves back in and continues to treat the wounds upon those she was seeing to before. Chiefly being Emilia. She looks over the officer and begins to address the wound on her chest.

"Your choice not to wear it, Sir." The Pararescue Jumper says with a slightly strained voice as he helps Petra towards the Raptor. "I know it isn't as flattering for your uniform, but we've got to make sacrifices." Kalum says lightly, obviously joking, and moves the LCOL into the Medevac Raptor. He takes one last look at the man's wounds, and seems satisfied that he wont bleed out. "Its a lovely fraking war, Sir…" With that said, he moves on over towards Fischer.

Morgan leans close to Fischer to hear the raspy whisper. He lays a firm hand on the man's shoulder and squeezes it. "I'll do my best, corporal," he assures. "Now, lie still. You've done enough for one day." He looks up in time to see Kalum heading toward the spot where the injured marine lies. "Officer Kalum, which raptor is Corporal Baca riding? He wants to ride with her if possible."
