    Welp, it's a friday, and we all know what that means.

    I would have watched the world cup, but the noise the South African crowd were making with their horns seem designed to give you epileptic fits, so fuck them.

    Christ UEFA, you could at least try to pretend that you don't pick host nations based on how much they bribe you.

    But back to the subject at hand.

    You are Commander David Lister ace mobile suit pilot for the Principality of Zeon.
    Well, most of it anyway.
    For the last 8 months you and your team of elite pilots have kicking all denominations of ass across the earth sphere as part of the Nachtmaren Unit.

    After rescuing national sovereign Degwin Zabi from where he was being held hostage on the moon, you were picked up by Rear-Admiral Kycillia Zabi and taken to the Zeonic Moon Fortress of Grenada. From there you joined her flotilla as you headed towards Side 3 to demand Gihren's arrest for treason.
    However your advance was waylaid by a fleet led by Aguille Delaz.

    The confrontation did not end well.

    The enemy opposed you with a mixed fleet if Vessells, including the gigantic Dolos class supercarrier.
    Luckily, thanks you're blitzkrieg assault on the engines and catapult ports you inflicted crippling damage on the vessel before it could launch it's gigantic MS compliment, and so damaged it was forced to call a retreat.
    Kycillia took this oppourtunity to call for a withdrawal as well and the two forces retreated to their own corners.

    Kycillia explains why the fleet had to move off instead of pursuing the Dolos fleet.
    "We received signals that the Side 3 defence fleet was moving up to catch us in a pincer. If we'd have pursued we'd have been caught by them from behind. So were retreating back to Grenada to take stock of the situation and work out a plan of action from here." She explains to the fleet.

    Technically however, you are an independant unit outside of the chain of command, you answer only to Garma Zabi back on earth, who due to fears of message interception you still haven't been able to give a full report to.

    Okay, the problem with communicating with Garma is that Radio is impeded by vast minovsky clouds which are floating about the earth sphere, and using Laser Communications require using a daisy chain of communication sattilites, of which you can't be certain Gihren's faction have control over or are monitoring.
    Until the situation stabilises and you have a better idea of the situation, comunicating long distance is going to a security risk no matter what ciphers you use, since Gihren's faction will have those ciphers as well.

    Well, it pretty much does since it's sharing a paint scheme and now sporting a Boxer Shield. Which proably saved your hide and proved highly useful in the last battle.

    >Anyways, how long more do we have till the 2nd Jaburo Op?

    You can't be sure, but about a month you think.

    Uh, J-type, then upgraded to an F2. El Muerto was NEVER a common F type.

    So, do you want to leave Kycillia's fleet and head back to earth, stopping by on Solomon along the way?

    You'll have to go back to Grenada in any case, just to pick Icelina back up, as you left her with Degwin.

    The entire Zeonic Central Defence Fleet. This includes at least one more Dolos class Supercarrier, 2+ Gwazine Battleships, plus a host of other vessels. Plus a lot of the latest technology comes from or goes to Side 3 as well, and it's alo where the primary shipyards for the Gwazine, Musai and Chivvay (Old Style) ships reside as well.

    We're still politically neutral as "Garma's Men" so it shouldn't cause too much of a problem.
    Sure we're on Ghiren's shit list, but we've probably been on that since we left Zum city.

    >I don't think this is very likely but would capturing Pezun put Gihren in anymore of an advantageous position, or would that just royally piss off Dozle to the point of throwing everything Solomon has at him?

    Hard to say. You aren't even sure if Pezun or even Solomon are going to throw in their support for Gihren at this point. It's all very chaotic and up in the air.

    As much as I would want to report back to Garma, not being here will either have the situation drag out or give Gihren the win.

    I'd like to return to Solomon in order to give Dozle and possibly Garma a full report, but I have two questions:

    1. Would it be easier/more secure to contact Garma from Solomon?
    2. Does Dozle have any idea what's going on?
    >> Anonymous 06/11/10(Fri)13:18 No.10428237

    Dragging the situation might be our best bet.

    Once Degwin is capable of moving, we can use him to speak to the Central fleet and Side 3. Gihren will have a riot and mutiny on his hands.

    Moving in too fast will deplete our space forces in a major battle. Not even aces will be able to help swing the balance that much. Too heavy losses and we wont be able to take Luna 2.
    >> Anonymous 06/11/10(Fri)13:21 No.10428293
    Not bringing Icelina back to Garma and actually meeting him in person is a bad idea. We've delayed long enough in having a face to face with out commander. Dozle can wait until we have a plan with Garma.

    Kycillia will need time to regroup and strategize and we can always catch up with our fast OH if she heads off before we get back.

    No way to know for sure, but Degwins Transmission to Delaz was crossbroadcasted across the entirity of the ZeoNews Network. So we can but hope.

    >What does Kycilia and Degwin think their chances without us are?

    You'd need to ask them, although you doubt that either would enter a fight they think they would lose.
    Kycillia controls Grenada, which aside from being a defendable military location is also the primary shipyards for the Zanzibar class and the New Model Chivvay's. It's also where every MS pilot goes to for MS training these days.
    The loss of the Grenada Training facility will probably result in Gihren having to enlarge the scope of the MS Training Battalion on Zum City, which doesn't really produce pilots on the same level, and subsists on it's politcal connections alone.
    Plus she has fairly tight control over the Zeonic forces in central Europe and parts of Asia.

    Plus she has the support of the Flanagan Institute here on the moon.

    Alright. We need to gather our gang. Head to Solomon to make sure Dozle knows what's up, and zip back to Earth to give Garma the full briefing.

    Of course, if we can communicate with Garma from Solomon or Pezun, it would be best to do that.

    But we NEED to talk to Garma.

    He was probably worried that the rest of his fleet was wavering in their loyalty so he was going to personally get the ball rolling to force everyone's hand. He did this because he was starting to question his own loyalty and fanatics don't like to do that.

    That's why I think he did it at least. He may of also put too much trust in the sheer amount of MS the Dolos can put out and got overconfident thinking he would have a sizable screen of MS by the time even the fastest Doms got there, he didn't know about our new Doms.

    You've already GIVEN a sanitised report like that to him. It's the important details like what's happening now, what Degwins health is like, and how Icelina was recieved that you haven't been able to give.


    You land back in Grenada to pick up Icelina and to get a feel for how things a sitting at the moment.

    As you enter the medical wing, you stop to ask one of the doctors how Degwins holding up.

    "Well, he's well enough, all things considered, however his health isn't sufficient to go back to running the country. Regardless of what happens now, one of his kids is going to have to take over the day to day running of things from now on anyway."

    "Almost sounds like Gihren planned it this way..." you comment.

    "Perhaps, although it could just be a beneficial side effect, let's not overestimate Ghiren Zabi either."

    After picking up Icelina, who seems to have gotten on fine with Degwin luckily enough, you meet back with Ramba Ral and ask him if he's gotten an idea of how the situation stands.

    "Well, from what I can tell, we've got two distinct factions forming within the Principality. The "Legitimate" Zeon led by Kycillia, and the "Loyalist" Zeon led by Gihren. 20 minutes ago, Solomon came out in favour of "Legitimate" Zeon, as did Texas Colony, Side 4 and Side 5. On earth Odessa also sided with "Legitimate" Zeon, and we haven't heard either way from Garma or from Pezun. On loyalist forces A-Boa-Qu has sided with Gihren, as have Side 2, the African Territories and the Axis Redoubt. We've also lost contact with Gryps and we suspect they've thrown in with him as well."


    "Current intelligence places it as a weapons testing centre. Probably something like Pezun."

    That's the situation.

    It doesn't seem like Gihren has all that many forces at his disposal and he can't really replace his losses all that well. It looks like he could beat us in ship production, but we win in MS production and future pilot training. If we can get Pezun, this may all be academic.

    There WERE, but that's where the Gundam and Char have been trolling about, so...

    With regards to aces, you have no way of knowing as of yet who's sided with what.

    Yeah, because THAT'S not going to backfire.

    Also, from what you can tell, Grypps isn't a cluster of colonies so much as a single colony that Gihren had evacuated for military purposes.
    It's a bit odd, most of the resources he appears to have transferred to it appear to be construction teams, and an AWFUL lot of Carbon Flouride Gas for some reason.

    Holy shit! I made it in time to post my one crazy-ass plan that could totally get us all killed!

    Send for Dozle, tell him to meet us at the half way point between Solomon and Grenada. We try to make it look like we're moving Degwin to Solomon to get him farther away from Side 3 and Girhen's reach. In reality we do bring Degwin but instead Dozle transfers over to the Outer Heaven. We then head straight for Side 3 with Degin's ships in persuit.

    Once we're in range of communications with Side 3 we put Jolyne on the lasercom and tell them that there's been a mutiny aboard and they've captured Degwin. David Lister is in custody and that she has another pilot (Bernie) in a MS ready to vent the ship if the crew try to retake it. Thanks to Jolyne's service record there is some credibility to the story.

    We bluff our way into dock in Side 3, at which point we have Dozle order the locals (that will undoubtably be about to storm the ship) to stand down. The story we go with from then on is that he is escorting his father to Girhen. We also stress that there is a Federation plot attempting to cause a civil war within the Principality. This is a flat out lie of course but it's the only way Girhen will get out of this whole situation alive AND save face.

    I meant whether or not you wanted Ramba Ral to stay in Grenada or follow you, but whatever.

    You and he load up your Zanzibars and leave for the research asteroid.
    The journey is tense and you keep an eye out for Loyalist Zeon forces as well as Federal Ships taking advantage of the confusion. With a bit of luck the Feds haven't caught on to level of what's happening with Zeon and made any moves to capitalise on it.

    "More than likely, they outnumber us, but with inferior ships, however if those Light Cruisers have their full MS compliment they might outnumber us if they launch quickly.

    "It might be legit. I certainly wouldn't bank on it. Now that they know that we've spotted them however, the number of moves they could make in this position are limited. Essentially they either bank on our forces being lesser than theirs, which if they recognize even your ship is not an assumption they should make lightly, or back down. Which means either moving off or playing along and resupplying at Pezun."

    You forget we are in the middle of a Civil War. We have ships from Gihren space coming to neutral Pezun and you think they could be just here for resupply when there are other options for mainstream MS parts? Those Musai are going to be loaded down with commando teams ready to take Pezun by force and we are being too damn timid in all this.

    We've still got the federation to deal with. We want to keep Zeon causalities to a minimum.

    Whats retarded about what I'm saying? Odds on these ships are going to be carrying commandos, rather than heavy guns and assault mechs, but still we can play the game of diplomacy with them. While outnumbered we are the superior force and could take them in open combat, putting ourselfs in a superior position is a sound strategem.

    they don't need to be on our side for us to offer support.

    If Pezun declines and tells us to go fuck ourselves, we know what side they are on.

    Keeping our ships out of dock until these three musai's leave prevents them from trapping us between Pezun and hostile warships.

    It's the safest course of action that traps all unknowns into revealing their motives as soon as possible, without requiring us to be overtly hostile.

    Alright, lets inquire as to their damage and ask if they need an escort. If they say yes, then we launch a couple of suits to escort them and move our ships into an escort formation. This is to only happen is they request an escort.

    Once we arrive at Pezun we inform the base commander of the situation fully and keep a watch on the ships.

    For all we know, these ships haven't even picked a side yet. They could have been on patrol and not be aware of the situation yet.

    They will leave to rejoin Gihren and we have to fight them later. If we knock these guys out now we can secure Pezun by simple proximity to Solomon as well as dimishing Gihrens forces.

    I think we're about to start our own civil war in the thread.

    The thing is, we cannot be seen as the aggressor or we will lose the PR battle. We also need to wrap this civil war up as quickly as possible while losing as little assets as possible. This is going to be tricky, but we can't just start firing on every ship that may or may not be on the opposing side. Right now, the only thing that identifies them as on Gihren's side is that they have certain iconography.

    You enquire where they're coming from. They claim they're on their way back from Axis to A-Boa-Qu after an extended patrol around the earth sphere. They basically started in Axis and then looped all the way around Side 7, Side 6, and then pulled in before the moon to stop off at Pezun for refuelling and resupply. A spy run on Federation territories apparently.

    Again, alleggedly.

    Even if it is a commando raid though, Pezun's a big place with top notch security, it'd take a fair number of soldiers to be able to take the asteroid interior, and that's if they had luck on their side.
    >> Imperial Officer !!YyBcUam8cxl 06/11/10(Fri)15:40 No.10430797

    Thats the thing, this is a small raiding force. At worse, they are scouting and feeling out Pezun's position. Since we are on good terms with Pezun, we should be in a good position to get them on our side.

    You keep a close eye on the 3 ships as you eventually make your way to Pezun. You and the other vessels are let in past the defences without issue, but you do notice that you're both sent to docks on opposing sides of the asteroid.

    As you enter you're met by Dr Katoki, looking considerable haggard and worried.

    "Morning Commander, I'd like to say it's good to see you, but things are pretty tense on the base right now."

    "We were kinda hoping that you were doing a Side 6 and actively persuing neutrality."

    "I'm afraid not. Basically we get personel, officers and scientists from all over Zeon here, so were basically split straight down the middle between factions. "

    "So it could go either way?"

    "I'm afraid so, and when it does I don't want to think about what's going to happen to the opposition. There could be blood on the halls before all of this is out."

    "Do you know what the Musai's are doing."

    "From what I can tell they ordered some basica spare parts, some Helium-3 and then asked for a direct meeting with the Station Head."

    "Which way does he swing?"

    "In better times I would have made a joke about that, but now... In anycase I'm not really sure, I think he was born in Side 4, which got nuked pretty badly during the one week war, so how he reacts is anybodies guess."

    You also ask for a meeting with the station head as well. Katoki say's he'll go and see if he can sort it out.
    He also asks how the No Legs and Gross Beil worked out. You tell him that they both performed admirably.
    He then says that afterwards he'd like to talk to you about testing something else out if you'd like.

    He then leaves, presumably to talk with the Station Heads aides.

    You then find Ramba Ral and ask him about what to do if Pezun declares either way.

    "Well, if it ends up with violence it's hard to say what will happen. Ultimately it will go down to what Commodore Zamza decides, as most aside from the die-hards will probably go with their superiors decision. The scientists might be a little bit more unpredictable, but I doubt any of them will turn insurgent, most I imagine would simply ask to be transferred back to friendly territory, whether or not Zamza let's them or just imprisons them is anybodies guess. IF HOWEVER the Legitmacy and Loyalist factions openly declare independantly of the Commodore, then we could be looking at real violence aboard Pezun. But Zamza must know this himself..."

    He rubs his chin as he considers the issue some more.

    If Pezun wishes to only send their suits to the frontlines of Earth, especially with the upcoming battle for Jaburo. I am okay with this but I would like to stress to him that the will of the spacenoids and the ideals of Zeon are not upheld by Gihren.

    Its the easy way out and it would be better than them joining Gihren.

    Still, I think we need to press him a bit first to join us before relenting and letting him be neutral. If we do support neutrality, we need to make sure the legitimate die-hards know our reasoning and we need to make sure they don't do anything stupid.

    Alright then.

    You tell him that if he feels that neutrality is the best way to serve Zeon, then he should persue it.

    "Your words make sense, in any case, I should make an announcement on my decision soon. If you could return to your docks whilst I deliberate, that would be much appreciated. Also, Lister? Katoki has yet more prototypes for you to test out, but I don't think it's a good idea to transfer any Mobile Suits into your ship until I make my decision. I'll have Katoki come to you and brief you on the new models in anycase."

    It appears you have been dismissed. You make your way back to the Ship docks where the Madagascar and Outer Heaven a staying.

    "So, how did we do?" Zolomon asks you.

    "Overall I approve, of the sentiment of neutrality, but it's touch and go to see if the crew of the station will support him. I guess it depends on how convincing Zamza can be now." Ramba Ral states.

    You return to the docks in about 10 minutes. About 15 minutes after that Katoki rejoins you.

    "Okay, whilst we aren't able to move any men, parts or mobile suits to you until the Commodore makes his decision we are allowed to show you what we want you to test... Quick question first, are you planning on staying in space after this? As we have a couple of space only prototypes to test out here..."

    Garma should focus on the Federation fully while utilizing the Pezun suits. The combined forces of Kycillia and Dozle should hold for now.

    Remember all that bigger picture stuff we taught Garma about. We can't let this family squabble get in the way of Spacenoid Independence and as long as the Federation exists Spacenoids cannot be free. This way we use the inherent fractured nature of the Zabi family to our advantage.

    Well, refits wise, we have a Zaku Refit that's being tested out by a crew from Grenada, among other things, they appear to be pushing for a unified set of parts, sort of like what we were trying to do with the Dom Funf. They've got some interesting ideas there... Speaking of which we also have a new Dom tropical warfare variant we'd like to test, I guess if you want we could shove them into your empty MA pod...

    Less verniers and probably lower generator output since it can't support beam sabers yet. We could always request EM coating for a Gelgoog later. Besides, these are the proto-Gelgoogs, which were later redesignated the S type. A models were dumbed down.

    Well, there is a limit on how much you can store in your ship. With the Bygro removed you can fit 3 more in there, but I'm pretty sure that Pezun has been holding your Pezun Dowdages for you whilst you've been in space, so you've got to make room for those. I also think you took the Gasshia with you as well, but if you don't want those back you don't have to take them.

    With the announcement made Katoki says that they can probably start transferring mobile suits to you now.

    "Basically, we'd like you to test out our new Beam Rifle platform, the MS-14 Gelgoog in land warfare environments."

    "So the Beam Rifle development is finished?"

    "Yes although we still cant miniaturise the beam particle magazine loader technology sufficiently to store inside a warship like the Federation has. The design is something close to a small nuclear power facility, and thus immobile. It's a bit of a weakness, but we're hoping to mass produce the magazines in great numbers, treating them like any other kind of ammo. That said, try not to toss your beam mags when they're expended, the more you keep the less we have to manufacture."

    "Got it."

    5 rounds per clip, and you'd think it would have a capacity of an extra two or three clips. Plus I'm pretty sure the MMP-80 was a standard sidearm for them as well.

    "We also worked out beam saber technology as well, there's nothing the Gundam has that the Gelgoog cant's match, offensively at least. We still can't mass produce Lunar-Titanium, and I'm beginning to doubt that we ever will."

    "What about that captured Trojan Horse we took in last week?"

    "They fragged their hard drive, plus I doubt the smelting process, or whatever it is they do, would have been on them in the first place. And we've analyse the finished product inside and out... we've hit a wall it seems..."

    "You mentioned a tropical Dom model?"

    "Dom Tropen, it takes and improves upon the original Dom Funf base, it loses the modular nature though, still it's probably the best Land warfare Dom we've designed in terms of ability and cost effectiveness. Plus it comes with that Raketen 880 that you've been enjoying."

    In terms of firepower, I think the Tropen wins and thats why Jo should have one.

    However, the Dowdage is superior at close range so if Zol doesn't take a Gelgoog than he should have them.

    If we have the space, we should keep as many Dowdages as possible. Also, does Ramba want a Dowdage?

    Okay, so you ditch an R2, convert the F2 into a Kai for Bernie to test out, then you take on 2 Dom Tropens to test out when you reach the ground. The three Gelgoogs shall go to Jolyne, Elaine and Zolomon, although Zolomon is probably going to insist on using the Gross Beil's Heat Burster Sword. You stay in your Act Zaku, now with a new Beam carbine (you ask about a Beam saber, but apparently only the Gelgoogs have the reactor for it.)

    Ramba Ral is also trying to get a Gelgoog out of this, but they don't really have many more to spare. They offer him Zaku Kai upgrades, and maybe an upgrade on his Rick Dom to a Mark 2 model, but that's about it.
    In about 3 hours, the work is done and your Zanzibar is fully loaded.

    With the beam rifle, we are still in very good shape for the war as a whole. They also may want to consider doing more backups.

    To be honest, with our improved tactics and production that we have been working towards we may not even need the Gelgoog. We've got pretty good Zakus at this point along with Doms. It might be better to just focus on them and not worry as much on the Gelgoogs.

    The Outer Heaven, with it's superior engines surges ahead, in terms of accelleration you have the 3 ships, which appear to be fleeing to the nearest Loyalist Side, outmatched. You should overturn them in about 15 minutes.

    Sensing this, all three launch their full compliment of mobile suits. 15 suits in all, and then two ships (The Jabberwocky and Griffon) turn to face you.

    Of those 15 Mobile Suits, there are about 7 various Zaku types, 3 Rick Dom's and a most unwelcome sight: the other 3 Gelgoog Prototypes, leading various squads.

    You order the Outer Heaven to begin firing whilst you launch, as the Zanzibar Kai enters range you hear it's heavy beam weapons and missiles open up. You also feel the maneouvering thrusters activate to avoid reprisal fire from the Musai, you also think you can hear an Anti-Beam Chaff pod launching. You exit out of the bottom port with El Meurto 2, armed with your Beam Carbine in place of the Bazooka. The rest of your squad does likewise.

    You see the mobile suits are advancing in a zig-zag pattern to avoid the OH's beam fire. They're advancing in 5 squads of 3 spaced fairly evenly to try and outmanouver you're 2 three man squads.

    Hovis is back on Pezun still, you gave away one of the Gelgoogs, and you don't have a space type MS for a replacement.

    In case I haven't been clear, the Gelgoogs aren't operating in a single squad, but as squad leaders for 3 other squads.

    In any case, with Calvin as Recon, that effectively means that your force consists of 4 Mobile Suits, you and 2 Gelgoogs, one with a Heat Buster Sword instead of a shield, and the other piloted by Elaine and a Zaku Kai piloted by Bernie.
    So split into 2 man pairs, one concentrates on the Gelgoogs, the other concentrates on taking out the Zaku's and Doms?

    Ah, this will do nicely.

    "Zolomon, you and me will concentrate on the Gelgoogs, I'd say aim to disable, but I don't want to underestimate the latest suit. So just take them out. The rest of you, cover us and keep the rest of them distracted as best you can, rely on covering fire from the Outer Heaven."

    "Man, It's suprising how much we've come to rely on Hovis and his mobile armours huh?" Zolomon comments.

    "Yeah well, with a bit of luck he'll turn up soon."

    Admists the dancing beams from the ship duel between the Outer Heaven and the Musai's you begin your attack.
    You dodge the Gelgoogs opening Beam salvoes using a standard dispersal advance and then return fire with your own. You're beam carbine fires in a burst of 3 brilliant yellow lances, you miss the main body of the Gelgoog, but your second shot takes out it's leg and your third takes down a Zaku behind him.
    Zolomon readies his Buster Sword and proclaims that he is the Sword the Smites all Evil and with a terrific slash he cleaves the damaged Gelgoog and a Dom that was too close in two.

    On the other side, Elaine takes out a Rick Dom with her beam rifle, and then avoids a Gelgoogs return shot and then parry it's beam naginta with her own. Calvin darts in with his 90mm ready, but the Gelgoog moves off, barely avoiding the burst.

    Okay, so generally you want to split team 1 up momentarily.

    "Zolomon, you back up Bernie, I'll deal with the Gelgoog over here."


    You dash around aiming to flank the Gelgoog whilst it continues to face Elaine. He narrowly manages avoid a burst from your Beam Gun and you ready the boxer shield as you dodge under his return fire.
    Hmm, the accuracy of the Beam Gun isn't all that great as well, it'll need calibrating later.
    He takes a couple of shots at Elaine to stop her advancing, and the second Zaku moves to distract her and Calvin whilst the Gelgoog faces you with his shield.

    There is a most impressive impact and your boxer shield shatter and tears the large full body shield in half, utterly ruining it. The Gelgoog recoils back trying to get another clean shot, but you stay close to him and fire a second burst from your Beam Gun at near point blank.

    As you retreat back from the explosions, you guess that the Beam Carbine is really designed for close quarters work like that.

    Elaine and Calvin have finished off the Zaku as it tries to retreat, and Zolomon and Bernard have killed the Zaku, and forced the Dom to retreat back to the other 2 remaining squads. Both of which are assaulting the Outer Heaven.

    Suddenly, explosions craze around the Outer Heaven, for a second you think it's a new enemy attack.
    But then a bright red Mobile Armour speeds through the expanding dust cloud, a Zaku in it's lobster like claws, which it promptly bisects.

    "Don't worry about me Commander! I'll take down those two Musai's, you concentrate on supporting the Outer Heaven. Ramba Ral's right behind me!"

    Hovis tells you from his Val Valo.

    You dash fowards to engage to momentarily disrupted squads. You fire another burst from your Beam Carbine at long range, and manage to score a couple of hits, taking out another Zaku and taking anothers arm off.
    You and Zolomon then concentrate on the last remaining Gelgoog whilst the others begin dealing with the Zaku's.

    You're Beam Carbine is registering it being out of ammo, so you replace it with your Bullpup and draw the Gelgoogs fire with a withering storm of bullets.
    He blocks the majority of your fire with his shield, although it takes heavy damage. He dodges Zolomon's swing from the side and raises his Beam Rifle to counter attack him, but Zolomon's leg swings out awkwardly and manages to knock the rifles blast off target.
    A second salvo from you damages his legs and strikes the torso in several places for minimal damage, he pushes upwards keeping you supressed with shots from his beam rifle.

    There's an almost comical clonk as 3 New Style Grenades strung together like christmas-tree lights collide with his head.
    Then they explode.
    The gelgoog pilot reacts like a scalded cat to avoid them, but he's still caught by the blast and loses his arm.
    A beam rifle shot lances out of nowhere and cleanly hits the Gelgoog dead center. You follow it's trejectory to see Ramba Ral in his Gelgoog standing atop the outer heaven.

    When you finally catch up, you order Hovis to pursue the fleeing Musai, he complies, leaving this one and the diminsihed escort to you.
    The battle doesn't take long. Little more than 5 minutes.
    Despite that, they fight hard to keep you delayed for as long as possible. Inevitably however the ship is destroyed along with the escort.
    You then follow the Val Velo's path to try and catch up with it, the Outer Heaven following.
    You find the Val Velo limping back to you missing an arm.

    "I'm sorry boss, I didn't reach them until they entered a debris field, they then managed to get the drop on me, a lucky shot took out my arm and caused a reactor quench.

    I'm wondering if any of you just realised that Bernie nearly got a Gelgoog kill himself just then.

    Well, I'll see you next week, GG everyone.

    Well shit.

    On the bright side, the Gelgoog data and scientists are still alive so hopefully when we defeat Gihren we will be able to capture the facilities.

    Fantastic work today Apologized. I can't wait until next week.

    Well, they just attacked a neutral outpost and destroyed information vital to the Zeon War effort against the feddie scum.

    YAY WARCRIMES! Send this information around Zeon to show Gihren is an unstable traitor cocksucker?

    That was Bernie? Nice Job Hamburger.

    That Gelgoog, did it blow up or went straight through the cockpit?

    Pezun's gonna be ticked...

    Oh well. Delicious field data.

    SO, Nachtmaren has taken out two Loyalist Musais, and most, if not all of their MS complement. Loyalist scientists and data for the MS-14 Gelgoog were being ferried on these ships, but they would have inevitably have been used to attack the Legitimacy rather than the Federation (Gihren isn't very good at choosing priorities). Gelgoog R&D is highly crippled, but combat data might help fill in the holes that were dug in.

    Our MS complement has been greatly upgraded, and Ramba Ral is in a prototype (read: better) version of the Gelgoog.

    Things appear to be looking up.

    Shit, they must have Gelgoog data now.

    Well at least they have no prototypes and this'll probably cause Pezun to go with us now.

    "So you're certain that he defected?" Kycillia asked over the the telephone.
    "He's definately taken copies of all of his work with him as well?"

    "How far has it progressed?"

    "A working prototype already? Unstable? How?"

    "I see, have we had any similar problems with our prototypes? No? And we also have all of the original research notes as well?"

    "Very well then, I'll authorise the continuation of the project, and the exploration of other uses for the technology. Keep me informed."

    On her desk, a manilla folder with the words "EXAM" on it could be seen.

    It was not, all told a technology that personally she cared for, but unfortunately she was now in a position where she had to put such considerations aside and consider what could end this fratricidal conflict she had found herself leading as quickly as possible.

    I, for one, do not know what this EXAM everyone is talking about is.

    I apologize for this, and will kill myself to preserve my honor once I am informed.

    The EXAM's the thing where they torture a Newtype to death and use their soul to integrate with the MS better, right? I don't like the idea of this getting off the ground. Not to mention they might use Nell.
    >> Cecil XIX 06/11/10(Fri)20:34 No.10436199

    Don't worry about it, I don't think any of the original material is even available in english. Where would someone who doesn't speak moon even learn about it?

    EXAM intergrates a Newtype as part of a bio-computer.

    Their soul, anyway. The rest suffers a more unpleasant end.

    BD-01 was a GM[G] that took apart 4 other GMs with its BARE HANDS.

    A 5th GM killed its pilot. Causing it to FLEE.

    BD-02 and 03 were Gundams.

    So from what I'm seeing only about 3 of the original 30 YMS-14's slated to be produced will make it into active duty now because of this whole fuck up? Am I interpreting this right?
    >> Anonymous 06/11/10(Fri)20:43 No.10436356

    There were 6 prototypes. We just trashed 3.

    On the other hand, fuckhuge amount of test data, and Ramba Ral has a hardon for the things now. That'll be big in favor of pushing development.

    As long as we're getting omakes, can we get one of how the White Base's crew sees us now that we've tried to kill them more than the Tri-Stars ever did in canon?
