    402 KB IRONHEARTS War Room: Albane Airfields Briefing IronCommand !SjkHabNIL2 08/18/11(Thu)20:04 No.15983927  
    Good of you to rejoin us, Hellghast. We've begun preparations to move into Albane's effective airspace. The battle will be set in the open so expect heavy resistance. We've also recieved critical intel from Mallone's contacts that the Voss have been doing trial runs of an aerial field effect bomber capable of spreading weaponized bio agents into city-wide areas. It will fly it's first mission tonight. I cannot stress how important this will be.

    We can only rely on you to be the tip of the spear for this assault while Vanders is the shield. Colonel Peregrin is also arranging a backup plan in case the "Stormy Night" takes off into the air.

    Captain, are your men Ready ?

    Good thing Springer will be holed up in her Strider for the most part. Of course if we ALL have to bail and make a run for it that'd be a bit inconvenient. But that's what jet packs are for.

    >Roger, story tiem.

    Remembering what Sgt. Gunther had told him about treating the vehicles right, rather than simply requisition and outfit a new strider, Winters and Summers had used the pneumatic arms of the two remaining striders to haul out the one that'd been submersed in the river at Wassau. They then took great pains to repair any water damage and ensure it was fighting fit for the next mission. The other two hadn't taken any actual damage themselves, but they still needed to maintain them to ensure high performance. Not to mention clean out all the blood that had splattered all over both machines.

    Winters: "These things don't offer a lot of protection... we need a way to prevent what happened to Springer."
    Summers: "Yeah... I took a look at her, she's still in a damn coma. Doc said she won't be ready for the next mission."
    Winters: "They've gotta have a modular armored crew compartment... I'm gonna go talk to the requisitions officer."

    Several man hours later, Winters and Summers had requisitioned three "Kinetic Topshields" and installed them on the Striders. They were pretty much angular, armored metal boxes that fit right over the cockpit. There were five viewing windows composed of thick plate glass reinforced with diagonal wiring, two on the front, one on each side, and one in the rear, so as not to heavily impair visibility for the pilot; they were still Scout Striders after all. Anything that could reasonably penetrate the reinforced glass would also be able to penetrate the armor on the Strider itself; not that it was a particularly difficult thing to do.

    Winters sat in the cockpit of "Frost" and looked at the rear view mirror, which provided a direct line of sight out the rear viewing window. There were also side view mirrors positioned in front of each of the side windows.

    "It's like I'm really driving a truck... well, if a truck had legs and a gatling cannon."

    "Ah, so Command's finally granted my request for a new crewman." Gunther grunted when the new recruit came into the workshop and saluted him. He wasn't too keen on letting others operate Isara, but now that she was in the form of the massive Gryffin, operating her with just two people was proving challenging, even for experienced tankers like him and Paskal.

    And shit, she was just a kid, just like Paskal. Couldn't be older than 16. In addition to her absurdly young age (or because of it), she had that lean, thin build that was pretty much an unofficial requirement for any tanker. Knowing how the casualties the main army were running, she as probably one of the bottom picks from the academy, too.

    "Private Richards, was it? He sighed. "Since you're new, you get the honor of going over to the ammo depot and requisitioning more shells for Isara. We've managed to expand the internal magazine by tossing out some unnecessary parts so we're going to need additional ammo, especially with a mission coming up."

    "Yes, sir." Richards sighed.

    After installing the topshields, Winters and Summers decided to see if they'd gotten any mail. They both had, but where Summers only got a letter from his parents telling him to take care of himself, Winters got a large package. A large, guitar shaped package.

    Summers: "Oho, what's this?"
    Winters: "... a flute."
    Summers: "Hah hah. So fahnee joke. Aw, and I bet this is a love letter from your sweetie."
    Summers swipes the letter attached to the package.
    Winters: "Hey, give that-!"
    Summers holds the letter up high as Winters attempts to jump up and grab it. Summers is a good bit taller than Winters, however, and he begins reading. "Dear Joel, I hope this letter finds you well. I know how much you love music, so I sent your guitar along with this message. We're all worried for your safety, but remember that our prayers are with you. Remember to take care of yourself, and always do what is right because it is right. Love, Mom. Aw, that's sweet. Man, you really are just a kid."
    Winters manages to climb up Summers' shoulders and swipe the letter back before falling to his feet. "I'm not a kid! Old enough to fight, anyway! That's why I was drafted!"
    Summers: "... Wait, you're a CONSCRIPT?!"
    Winters: "Well... yeah. They extended the draft to apply to 16."
    Summers: "YOU'RE SIXTEEN?!"
    Winters: "Uh huh..."
    Winters: "Because I'M THE BEST."

    A roar could be heard from the Chop Shop, the squad's new name for Oderkonn's tent. A box of tools went flying out the front entry, followed by a human stampede; Hodr in a fit of cussing rage, now with a shining new arm.


    "Sir!" "Yes Mister Weiss- I mean Sir!"
    The girls had been nodding off right outside the tent.

    "I'll give you once more chance, you girls sure you wish to dirty your hands with this kind of work?"

    The two nodded with a shaky determination. They'd seen first hand what happened to Hodr and his team days before in the forests of Wassau. He only wished to make sure nothing like that would ever happen again.
    "Very well."
    After loading up and arming themselves, they joined the rest of the gathering Hellghasts.

    Thank you Command.
    >Access to our upgraded Artillery?

    Assuming we're coming from the east.
    Those 3 cannons need to be sorted out.
    Sandbags will most likely be littered with troops.
    Viable flank routes if we jump up top to the battlements.

    I think the safest way would be to cross the field via transport.

    Ideas captain?

    I'm seeing what look to be gun emplacements on the roof of the main building, and plenty of sandbags below that for infantry.

    The gun emplacements are going to be a big problem, I'd say we put those right behind enemy armor on the 'to kill' list.

    If possible Command, I'd like to deploy on the opposite side of the formation from Alphonse, to widen the area our walls can cover.

    Okay, Hodr's input

    I suspect the objective will be on the tarmac.
    But, that opening line is going to be KILLER.
    Anyone NOT in the transport will need to get DOWN ASAP. (It'd be cool if we can start prone/hidden in the foliage/Tr in the ground already)

    As for the assault team, up to mana to decide where we breach.
    That runway looks like it'll have some defense if we try to directly flank. Although a direct REAR attack still has us in the FoV of that gun. So a side attack in the N or S might be more logical.

    Casters, you guys are gonna need to use some imagination today.

    Also, remember, Isara can hold up to 2 squads, and I'm sure she's tall enough that you can hop straight onto the roof from her. Or you can just use her as a mobile bunker if you so wish.

    Does the Tr leave a tunnel in it's wake as it travels through the ground? If so we could follow the Tr through the tunnel. Would create a hell of a bottleneck but it'd allow us to bypass that killing field.

    The Tr would pop under the building in front of it. Allowing us quick access to the roof and allowing Rip to act in the relative tranquility of the interion. I will leave the main assault to Gunther seeing as most of what is going to be fielded there is going to be armor.

    > Tempted to play an A and requisition a Tr, just for those extra unit actions... And my second Action upgrade also goes to the units, right? Woo~
    > Driver charge/run, spare As use dual action each to fire turrets and spin drills

    Very well plan is a frontal assault while me rip and Hodr try to pincer them, hammer and anvil, take care of the cannons on the top and armor first, then work out the heavy emplacement.

    Right then, I guess I'll be a part of said assault, won't I?

    Me and Willhelm will be trying to take out the rooftop guns as well.

    Seeing as you're not currently in Tr heading for the middle of the enemy line, yes you are part of the assault group.

    >Like I said earlier if you had played [A] We would have had no Tr due to it costing one extra slot that we don't have

    Anyone who can spare an action and starts deployed more than 2 hexes away from either me or Alphonse, please drop an array if you wouldn't need that action for anything else.

    Also as a reminder to command, I would like to be on the other side of the formation than Al.

    Say so before he process the roster, there is no guarantee to it now.

    Can do. I'll just be filling in gaps wherever I can. Just let me know if any of you need smoke cover. With an open field like that, it'll help the odds a little
    >> [SUN][C1] Pvt. Alphonse !zNSO2WFfGE 08/19/11(Fri)00:37 No.15986582
    Piece of advice, stay behind the smoke cover so it blocks line of sight from you rather than trying to hide within. More often than not, the enemy has been known to bombard the smoke to devastating effect."
