Did somebody say fanservice?!
First for fanservice.
You're here, good!The operation is about to begin. Let me fill you in.
>>46816196Still no contact with Vancouver?
Let's execute this plan swiftly and efficiently.
>>46816268>implying our half in the bag antics wont continue to waste UN funds at an alarming rate
>>46816295If they want us to blow up more angels they should give us more EVAs.
[Prov. Head of Science]35 minutes ago our satellite surveillance team spotted explosions and large columns of smoke erupting from the building housing Nerv-Vancouver's Magi Supercomputer. This building is also where EVA unit 07 is located.
>>46816331More EVAs means more pilots means more physiological issues. I'd rather we have bigger guns for our EVAs
>>46816375>he doesn't enjoy the task of keeping the pilots working efficiently by developing relationships with them
>>46816364What about signs of life? Both in the general area, and inside the building?
>>46816407I do, but it's just hard to keep track of all their.. 'issues'
>>46816331>if they want us to blow up more angels they should have us be full in the bag all the time>>46816364I kind of feel bad now...Did Vancouver have any active pilots for 07?
>>46816407Poor David. He died a virgin.
>>46816098Forgot your name, Nerv-HQ.Also it's 5am. While I can't really justify why I've stayed up this late to begin with, at least I can complain that I'll be staying up longer.
>>46816461It's 3AM over here. I just went to bed early and set an alarm for about now.Would probably be even easier if it was 5AM.
>>46816364what units have we sent to Vancouver?
I spent a week labouriously checking the twitter and catalog you monster
>>46816364Didn't one of our bombers have a howitzer? Those usually have an IR scope with magnification. Let's use it and recon the Nerv-Vancouver's site.
>>46816516Same here.I feared the worst.
>>46816098So, what's the plan so far.I remember we were on a tight timeclock, with our own MAGI system being co-opted.What forces do we have available near Vancouver?How long do we have until Ophelia is 0wn3d?Who's our Ritsuko clone, and are they hard at work bodging up a solution to keep Ophelia online?What resources do we have available on Montreal if another angel decides now would be a good time to attack?How are we going getting Florence out of the I-i-i-m only restraining you because that's what m-m-my chemical configuration does! It's not like I WANT to hold you or anything ... you BAKAlite?Basically I'm asking for Sitrep.Yes I know in-universe it's probably only been 2 minutes. Major's mind works in strange ways.
>>46816098Every problem can be solved, given sufficiently strict definitions of "problem", and sufficiently loose definitions of "solved"
>>46816411We don't know. Power is still out throughout Vancouver and it's neighbouring towns. U.N. Forces are hard at work evacuating the outside perimeter of the city, but... [She looks away]This will be a costly battle, Major. We will have to battle inside in fully populated city.Our bomber wings will drop EVA Unit 02 at this drop point. Our MAGI estimated that this would be the safest location.Are are our orders:-Investigate the MAGI Supercomputer Facility-Secure Evangelion Unit 07-Secure Evangelion Unit 08We also got some ''recommendations'' from the U.N. Higher ups:-Research Facility A must under no circumstances suffer damage of any kind.-The 38th Fighter Squadron ''Marauders'' are currently landed at Vancouver's airbase. We are to contact and assist them in any way we can.
>>46816657Might as well hit up the HQ first. Try and raise the airbase on the radio.
>>46816698Indeed. It's the closest target point.Still, let's try and play nice for the U.N. on this one.
>>46816728If the research station gets fucked up, we'll just say it was like that when we got there. Or the citizens of Vancouver broke it during a recent hockey riot.
>>46816657We're fighting in a populated area against very human targets.Time for Tiberian Sun soundtrack.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qq8PTCxuzTA
>>46816755Fair enough, but let's just try to avoid causing damage to it ourselves.No using it for cover or anything.
>>46816657Where's our VTOL airgroup?
>>46816579>BAKAliteGet this man a posthumous promotion after we execute him.>>46816657Why don't we head south from the drop point so we come at the MAGI facility from the east?It'll give us some time to hail the airbase via comms, get aerial recon, and keep 02 from being at the center of all of the UN/Vancouver sites at once.
>>46816786Our VTOLs are racing against the clock to reach vancouver in time, refuelling along the way. ACE will be there in 45 minutes since it's the one squadron with the most powerful engines. I'd say the rest will be there in one and a half hour.>>46816657Recommendations? We've got our hands full already!And I know those 38th Squadron guys. Total assholes, don't bother with them.
>>46816887I wanna know how the heck Rachel managed to survive those scars, particularly the one above her nose.That's an EXIT wound. Anything causing that injury will fill your sinuses with blood and choke you. You'll be bleeding down your windpipe, at a damn high rate. That's lethal unless you've got a doctor on site within minutes to intubate.
>>46816887Wasn't Rachel's surname Davies?Did she marry while we weren't looking?Still, let's try to reach 38th Squadron on radio. They may have valuable intel.
>>46816887Sorry Rachel, you know how it is. Cooperating with the U.N. is our best shot for additional resources.We'll prioritize the main mission of course, but consider the "recommendations" as secondary objectives.
>>46816958Maybe she ended up upside down so the blood dripped out?Would it help?
>>46816994Actually yes that would work. I didn't think of it but that would work.Would also keep the person conscious due to the bloodflow to the brain, too
>>46816098I first saw these threads last week, and it was fucking awesome. Read through all the archived ones. Inspired me to get out a mothballed game I was working on that was basically the same premise, that was left to rot because I can neither do art nor write for shit. See where Im going? Wanna help make "Just-different-enough-from-NERV-so-that-Anno-doesnt-sue-us Bridge Sim: Vidya Gaem Edition"? If you're cool with it, I can throw some of the portraits from the thread into the horrific 2D interface I have (it was originally a mobile game, but I think it'd be better if there was a full 3D bridge now) so you can see the basic gameplay. Only rudimentary combat is visible at this point, no interface done for everything else, ie upgrades, between-battle story, though there is code for that lurking around.
Rolled 9, 3, 2, 3, 4, 3, 6, 2, 9 = 41 (9d10)>>46816098:^)
[CBW]Major. We are almost in position to drop Eva Unit 02. She will have 5 minutes of internal power to connect with an umbilical cord.I am closely follower by Hermit and Temperance. Hermit does not have a full Bakelite ordinance, instead it was equipped with additional Eva Weapons in the event that on-site procurement wouldn't be possible.Do you want to talk to the Second Child before her deployment?
>>46816887ACE will play conservative, staying close to support 02 until the other wings arrive. Depending on if we get contact with the Marauders that will change-I don't want the Marauders behind our guys though. Do you know if they had access to any N2 mines, I don't want another surprise deployment.
>>46817077Put her through.
>>46816958The power of neckbeard lust.
>>46817077Of course we wish to talk with the Second Child.. Observing her mental state and boosting the moral of our pilot is crucial. Also, she's a good kid.Put it onscreen.
Wheres the closest cable? Running on batteries is dangerous.
>>46817122More like the power of the commanders own Kaworu
>>46817148Presumably in the Eva-07 cage in the HQ
>>46817077>Do you want to talk to the Second Child before her deployment?Yes.I think part of me wishes it were possible to pat her head remotely. The rest of me just wants to brief her on the objective, wish her luck, and try to keep her calm in this unknown situation.
>>46817173There must be room in the upgrade budget for Entry Plug head-pat appendages.
>>46817173>>46817188Don't be idiots.We save the headpats for if she gets out alive.
>>46817188>>46817173>>46817206It's like you want the Third Impact to occur.
>>46817173>>46817125>>46817120>>46817077Anna, this is major Anon. Your priority is to get to the nearest cable tower as soon as you hit the ground. We're trying to keep surprises to a minimum here, so I want you topped off in case anything happens.
>>46817173>>46817188>>46817206You know, we're getting dangerously close to recursion.We, in this text-based adventure on a monquerian alfalfese ironboard, are going to invent Virtual Headpats.That's one layer of otakujin escapism INSIDE another layer of otakujin escapism.
>>46817206>>46817188>>46817173>headpatsJesus Christ, stop this shit
>>46817251I remember back when it took effort to troll people, you know.You couldn't just say "Lesbian mommy" or "Headpat" or "Disciple her ;)" and get five (You)s of enraged anti-fetishists.
>>46817365It only takes a single troll for people to die in this quest
>>46816965She married us. Rachel Major.
>>46817435>it only takes a single troll for people to dieWhere the hell do you think you are?It doesn't take anything for people to die in this quest.
>>46817435Yes, but you don't have to care so strongly about these characters. They're fictional, anon.If you wanted, you could write your own fanfic (of a fanfic) wherein everyone survives and gets a happy ending.There is literally no need to care so strongly about the lives of fictional characters, since you can outright CREATE a better life for them if you so choose, or others can outright create a worse life for them.You being invested in this quest is mostly sunk cost fallacy - you think these characters are important, because OTHER people think they are important.People who get deep into sunk cost fallacy are very easily trolled.
>>46817227I'll do my best, Major.I must admit that I'm feeling really tense. There will be lots of civilian nearby, what if I make an error?
>>46817489Believe in the Major who believes in you.
>>46817482At least I'm not invested in butthurt I imagine other people feeling because of my posts.
>>46817489>There will be lots of civilian nearby, what if I make an error?Dead civilians.Don't worry about it. There'll be civilian casualties here. So long as you aren't actively TRYING to cause collateral damage, you're doing well enough, and the civilian deaths will be acceptable.//Years of playing UFO: Enemy Unknown, Atom Zombie Smasher, and Age of Empires have taught me to not care about "acceptable losses"
>>46817489Short hair a cute. CUTE!
>>46817489I can't even remember the last time you made an error. Don't worry about it, you always do just fine.And besides, the situation is already pretty dangerous here. If you don't do ANYTHING, I think a lot of people are going to die anyway. The tiniest mistake is worth it if you can save this entire city in the end.
>>46817533Amusingly, I'm not.I consider it a fun bonus but it's never the primary point.Why do people get butthurt, anyway? It doesn't help them, it doesn't help anyone else. It seems to have no productive purpose whatsoever.
>>46817489Don't worry, we both know that you're capable of this.Keep your cool out there and you'll be fine.
>>46817489Well, imagine if you weren't here, and how many civilian casualties we'd have if we had to defend Montreal without our MAGI system operational. We might even get a Third Impact.Just by being here, you're minimising civilian casualties.
>>46817489I'm your mission control, Anne. As long as you follow my orders, any error that happens will be mine, not yours. Just keep calm and concentrate.Your portraits are nicer and nicer each thread, Cegremo
>>46817599People are inherently irrational and largely not in control of their feelings. It's human biology.
>>46817653>Major Anon taking responsibility for his actionsha ha ha, vetoed
>>46817489Remember each battle we go into is for humanity as a whole. Well try to limit casualties on the ground, but as callused it is to say it, we are fighting for something greater here.
>>46817653> As long as you follow my orders, any error that happens will be mine, not yours.You do realise that she's just gonna worry twice as hard, because we bark conflicting orders harder than a Korean doing Mutalisk Micro.And our orders tend to contain error. A lot of error.Maj. Anon is what happens when you wanted to make a gestalt or a hivemind out of tacticians, but there were budget cuts, so you just shoved in the tabletop wargamers since fuck it they know basic tactics.
>>46817740It's a miracle we were able to get the Major to shave and shower. Apparently we can override his natural tendencies if we get him "off screen".
[Second Child]>>46817505>>46817557>>46817588>>46817645>>46817653This doesn't make my situation any easier! But I guess you're right.

>>46818274The HQ probably has backup power from a reactor or something, though this IS the Vancouver NERV.
>>46818274Hopefully the umbilical cables are attached to separate generators in case of something like this happening

[CBW]Major. We lost one bomber.This airspace is contested. We cannot provide support until the city's Static Weapon systems have been dealt with.
>>46818418If the base's defenses are active, that means they have power!Anna, get to work!
>>46818418Doesn't that mean the SWS are going to be locked onto Anna now?Oh good lordy there's gonna be collateral damage from a city's defense systems danger-closing itself. Bring coffins. ... Actually, bring buckets.
>>46818418Now would be a good time to phone up the vancouver air base. We need more cannon fodder, and they are just the ticket.
>>46818511"Hi, is this NORAD? we need cannon fodder.""Major this is NORAD, go fuck yourself."
Major, I've safely reached the ground! No damage has been sustained by my unit.I'm roughly 7 kilometres off from the designated Drop Point! I'm running towards the Umbilical Cord!
>>46818418Do we have a plan of Vancouver SWS?Can the bombers at least provide surveillance?What about >>46816522?

Analysis pending.
>>46818995Ophelia. Just letting you know. I love you, but damn you can be hard to handle at times.Don't YOU control the SWS in Montreal?I expect Vancouver's Magi has gone rogue.
>>46818995Will SWS be able to target Anne if she crawls?
What was your face when you realised that Elisabeth has more than enough souls to get her own eva with?
>>46819072Still not enough souls to upgrade her living room decor to Pine Wood Set +1 with the Verdant Curtains
Have the VTOL's got here yet? AT Flares also function as regular flares, right? So if we send them in popping those bastards like its the fourth of July, then our air units and the 38th should be able to wipe out the static defenses.

>>46820347"Anne, I hate to do this, but I'm ordering you to keep your distance. He may be in danger, but you're our only EVA on the field."
>>46820347Stay put and raise your AT field, Anna. That is a direct order.
>>46820347anna, trust me and stay at distancegot a real bad feeling at that...fucking bardiel gone command and conquer on us
>>46820347Anna trust us, it's just a precaution till we can verify if the pilot is friendly and has control of his EVA. Remember the angel that took control of Eileens EVA?
Gotta see if we can jack into the HQ, remote shutdown that EVA and any static defenses that survived.
>>46820317>>46820349I can't. The Weapon System attack depleted it!>>46820372>>46820388>>46820394I- Roger. I'll hold my position.
>>46820460If we had a Ground Forces Battlegroup that involved infantry, that would be feasible. Can we form a Special Ops division?
>>46820347"I'm sorry but we're on a tight clock here to get to the source of this whole mess."Do we have enough visual to confirm whether Unit 07 is running on umbilical or nor?Because if it turns out to be hostile, maybe we can just cut the power line and let it run out of batteries.
>>46820347HERMIT, Prepare Bakelite payload immediatly. If Unit 07 act aggressively, consider it as a valid target. You must stop it before it can do any damage to Unit 02.
>>46820460I'm going to assume that if we can somehow shut down their HQ, the angel will probably go with it. This is assuming that this thing is our version of Iruel, and it somehow took over Nerv Vancouver.
What's the First Child's status? Is Eva 03 freed from its cage yet? I'd feel a whole lot better with some reinforcements on standby.
>>46820514Yeah, what he said. We need units on the ground, also what happened to those reinforcements from the Canadian Defense Force?
>>46820483Seconding this. Prepare a Bakelite salvo.
>>46820460>remote shutdown that EVAcut umbilicalor douse in bakalite
I love how they treat bakelite as some crazy material in EVA, but in reality its just cheap plastic. Pic related, its made of the stuff you trap Evangelion units with.
>>46820597hey man if it works.
>>46820597It's probably infused with anime molecules to be able to coalesce into giant crystals like that. But yeah, it is kind of funny.
>>46820597probably its an other compound with a similar name or a modified comcound of itbut it is pretty funny the metal image of stoping evas by floodin the cages with old telephones
>>46820597Bakelite salvo is actually Trabants.Those were the shit back in DDR.
>>46820677so were dumping old Soviet cars on angels in liquid form?
>>46820677>NERV has a room dedicated to melting down old Soviet cars and weeaboo figurines to replenish their weaponized plastic supply
>>46820597Yeah, but its a a shitload of it all at once dousing the target.Then again, Unit 01 was flooded to the neck in the stuff and knocked that shit aside like it wasn't even there when Yui felt like moving.
//Unit 07 Analysis complete. Blood pattern is blue, Designation is changed to 7th Angel.//The 7th Angel is under some kind of physical transformation ; flesh and LCL is pouring out of its armour plates. //Update: The angel is growing mass at an accelerated pace. //It is not connected to an Umbilical Cord. Power source is unknown.
>>46820732Well that's terrifyingLook alive, Anna; Unit 07 is hostile! Take it down!.
>>46820732Oh god...it's worse than we thought.Anna, I need you to listen to me. That thing is not an EVA, there's an angel inside of it right now, so treat it as such. Defensive maneuvers on this one, and I hope your remember the basics of CQC.
>>46820732OH FUCKwho bets the lcl and flesh might as well be acid or toxic?
>>46820716War effort is serious business. Back in the day blacksmiths would melt church bells to make cannons and various household items to make bullets.
>>46820732Shit. Anna, engage this "thing" at any range, with any range you'd like. Pose if you feel like Joestar.
>>46820732Hermit, if it spot Anna, drop the Bakelite.
>>46820732Get me a full analysis on the "Angel"Specifically:>Is there currently an entry plug installed in it?>If so, is it manned?
>>46820732alrighty then, Everybody light that fucker up.
>>46820732Monitor the communications systems of that thing and cut Anna's connection to the channel. If there's a pilot in there and he starts screaming, I don't want Anna to know about it. Let her kill the poor kid without any guilt if it comes down to that.
>>46820732How realistic a plan would be luring it out of populated area (at least out of densely populated area) and blasting it to bits?Also - no AT field?
>>46820732>Anon: Can we get a new pilot to replace the one we lost?>Cegremo: Sure, anon, NERV-MTL is rolling him out right now!>this happens a month laterOP you bastard
Would Cegremo consider for an Iconic Field Quest in the future?
Bakelite it, howitzer it, then send in the EVA to forcibly remove limbs.Under no circumstances tell the pilot that there could be a kid in there. We all know how well that worked last time.
>>46820808>>If so, is it manned?Pretty sure it's full of nothing but tang now.
>>46820780>>46820814Is it really a good idea? If we still have some time and we can pay a visit to other places, we may be able to better assess the situation. And who know, find some usefull things against the Angel?
>>46820732Wait...does Anna have any weapons at all? Have some bombers divert to this *thing*. I want a screen of fire to overwhelm it for a moment, then Anna should get her weapons and light him up. If it has any tricks, open a salvo one last time, then fuck off to destroying the static weapons.>Also OP you should run a Shinji & 40k Quest. Just a one-shot, to appease the anti-quest fags.
Did we bring the Positron Rifle?Goddammit.
>>46820902thing is heading towards Anna, better to have her engage it and lead on a merry chase while some units do flybys and the others search the area.
>>46820930she's the only unit out there. being equiped with only a sniper would be a problem.
>>46820902Look, action speaks louder than words. She has her fists, so it should be enough. Have the bombers spray it with bakelite and bombs, then drop Anna her weapon. EVA shotgun when?
>>46820732we thankfully have bakelite rounds. but i dunno we have no idea if this is the "Core" of the 7th angel. I dread to think of this thing as a combination of Bardiel and Iruel.
>Do you want to engage the 7th Angel? Or do you want to go and see the MAGI facility beforehand?
>>46821063ENGAGE MAGI ENGAGE. LIGHT IT UP.
>>46821063Let's see the other facilities and hope to god the Angel doesn't engage.Does Anna neccesarily need to go there or can we have the conventional units head there?Can Anna just standby near the angel, and can we have the conventional units check on the facilities?
>>46821063Well, if the Angel didn't spot our EVA unit, I see no reason to attack it directly. Nerv-MTL isn't in direct danger and we shouldn't risk our only ground unit in a gamble.EVA 07 is not necessary the angel's core.
>>46821038It has no AT field, it probably isn't the core.But the, report says it "appears to be growing" so if left unchecked now, it might be more trouble later...
>>46821063see MAGI first
>>46821063check the other facilities first if the Angel doesn't engage but make sure to keep eyes on the EVA.
>>46821063Look mates, we don't know the capabilities of what we've seen. Let's fight the Angel first, then let the bombers harry it when we know what we're facing. Alternatively, just bomb it then let's get to the MAGI facility. We might get more weapons. Preferably a chainsword. Or let's use our prog-knife.
>>46821063Never say no to more intel. Let's go see how badly NERV-Vancouver has fucked up this time.
[CBW]Major. We've successfully made a scan of the city.You won't like this.
>>46821414What's the sit-rep CBW? Don't mince words.
>>46821414Hang on a sec, mixing a drink and I cant find the bitters.
>>46821414I never liked Vancouver, CBW. Lay it on me.
>>46821414please dont tell me this has become george romero movie
>>46821474Well at least we wouldn't have to worry about collateral damage. Might even be able to break out the positron rifle back home.
>>46821414I stopped liking this hours ago, go on.
[CBW]First of all we spotted two additional live Weapon Systems. Unlike the first one, these do not possess Ground-to-Air capabilities.There is a very strong A.T. Field surrounding HQ. Its strength is off the charts, much stronger than anything we've seen before. It's messing with our sensors in a very effective way too, as if it was designed to. We couldn't get clear pictures of what is down there, but we're sure of one thing : there's no one. No sign of where they're gone too.
>>46821635Well shit, guess the air assets are out. Might want to get Anna to run straight to the airbase and scream at them, so they can take out the static emplacements from inside the AT field.
>>46821635>Unit 07 has flesh pouring out from its armor>nobody visibly left aliveThe part of my brain that makes wild assumptions is having a disturbing thought.
>>46821635Thank you CBW. Get me a run on those static positions, I don't want anymore complications on this missions than neccesary. Anna, if you can hear me, your objective has changed. Find a weak point in that AT Field and head into the HQ. We need you to disable any systems that may have been corrupted by that angel.Anyone, do we have any world on the CDF forces? I thought they were gonna support us on this one.
>>46821701You mean the thing that happened to Eileen on much bigger scale?
>>46821635should we make a unit run to Unit 8's cage to check for equipment while Anna circles around to the first research facility.
>>46821701it has gone the way of the Master.
>>46821731Yes. We should also try to contact the UN forces in the Airbase to see what they are up to.I think it could be a good idea if we paid a visit to Research facility A. It sounded like U.N. forces knew something valuable was in it. It could be some kind of big gun.
>>46821635Not good, not good at all.Going straight to the HQ is out of question, it would notify Unit 07.We can encircle and approach the base from South, seems shortest.But we could encircle from Noth-West and maybe get some support from the Airbase.Anothe big question is whether Unit 08 is on the loose as well, and if so, where the hell it is.
>>46821795>>46821788agreed we need more info and more forces for backup. Get the UN out here because Vancouver's population probably got assimilated.
Turn on the EVAs loudspeaker and play the file marked "DangerZone.mp3" at max volume. Dont worry, its there. The guys at the airbase will know what to do.
>>46821635Temperance and Hermit, circle north and start dismantling those static defenses. Hermit, take a peek at the research facility and maintain air sensor coverage. I'm thinking that whatever's stolen EVA-7 might've hit EVA-8 and the airbase as well.>>46821701I'm thinking what you're thinking.>>46821731Let's assume they're all dead and hope they pleasantly surprise us.Research Facility A is right in the heart of downtown - tight quarters and plenty of skyscrapers. Headquarters and the central static defense is in the middle of suburban Burnaby - precious little cover for EVA-scale units, 3-story low-rises at best. If my reckoning is correct, however, there ought to be a large ridge overlooking HQ around the position of the central SWS. The second SWS is out near UBC, likely concealed in the forest, while the Airbase appears to be YVR proper.
>>46821731The CDF are saying that they evacuated all they could. Until a certain point there's no one. They also say they've got alarming reports of units disappearing when heading into the city. Huh... Major? Some units are reporting ''a strange liquid'' filling the street. This isn't good.
>>46821920FUCKActivate Ghostbusters 2 protocolsCollateral damage is no longer a thing
>>46821920Definitely the thing that happened to Eileen.The good news is that based on our limited experience it should be reversible.The bad news is people at the Airbase are useless to us, if they get any closer to the AT field we will lose them as well.
>>46821920Oh god...I think we know what happened to the people...Get a call out to them, no one else goes into that city without our go ahead. Anna, proceed with caution. This one's AT field is LCLing anything that gets close.
>>46821920Have Anna take out the remaining automated defenses. Then bomb the whole area. N2 mines. No chances.Tell Anna to engage only from range and keep her distance from any hostiles. Avoid contact with any fluids.
>>46821920fuck it, just start blowing Vancouver up right now. Bomb it to hell, the city should now be considered infected and the HQ completely compromised and hostile
>>46822008The statics that are left are just ground to ground, so we probably should let the air units take care of it. We have at least one corrupted EVA out there, probably another, and we've already taken a few hits from those rockets.
>>46821920Lets take the reasonable solution and bomb the hell out of that place
>>46821701Well, EVAs ARE biological in nature. It's more likely that the EVA itself is injured
>>46822051>we probably should let the air units take care of itNorthern defense should be no problem, but fly-by on the central one might liquify the pilots. We don't know how high is reach of the field.
>>46821635Might be worth checking out Unit 08's cage to see if there's anything interesting to salvage before we send the place to hell.
>>46821920Let's NOT just start blindly bombing the place. Even with people gone, there's still lot to salvage. We need more intel.
>>46822102Plus the AT field might deflect the shots. Get them to clean up just the north one for now.
So basically the angel went The Thing on Vancouver, but as Tang?
Terrain sketched out as best as I can reckon.
[MAGI]//Status update: MAGI-Vancouver has infiltrated all but 11% of my partitions. The third partition has been completely overtaken. The attacker now has access to our personnel data, undergoing research reports and city maps.//Once the second partition falls, I will lose control over Montréal-3 systems. The Geofront and Terminal Dogma will be safe as long as I still control the first partition.//Time remaining until control is lost: 23 minutes.//Do you want me to start the emergency self-destruct procedure once the attacker gains control of the first partition?
>>46822152So that deserted stretch where they made the swanky new sprawling Chinatown but still not cramped, in Richmond is where the EVA-08 cage is?Last I remember Richmond was mostly deserted lots and undeveloped patches with the occassional mall out of nowhere.
>>46822152So what am I seeing there is that if EVA hops in the river it should be able to follow it all the way to the HQ, assuming we can pass the AT field.
>>46822191As long as its limited to the MAGI system. Im too drunk to die now!
>>46822191Standby on that command. Do not initiate yet. Has Florence been fished out of that bakelite yet? We need every unit on the ground immediately, we're losing time as is.
>>46822152EVA-07 seems to be camped out in the Coquitlam suburbs. If we've got the time, I'd recommend EVA-02 proceeds directly south across the bridge and circles around to the Alex Fraser bridge, proceeding to VNC-HQ from there.>>46822234The Fraser River ought to be fordable, if EVAs are waterproof enough to wade across 'nam-style.>>46822287Florence is here in MTL. Even at Concord speeds, she's hours away. Unless we can procure reinforcements on-site, this is all we've got.
>>46822191Does Toronto have a MAGI? Can't they help us on that?Else, we should prepare an emergency shutdown of MAGI before we loose the control.
>>46822287We'd need a mass driver to get an EVA across Canada in under 20 minutes. Anna's on her own for this one.
>>46822191Do not start emergency self-destruct protocols.We need to distract EVA unit 07, I suggest we begin a limited bombing run just north of it's location to lure it away. Send unit 2 immediately to the MAGI facility. We cannot afford to lose OPHELIA.
>>46822319>>46822311Oh god...I think we fucked up guys...
I wonder if Richmond is tang-free?>turn people into tang, take over weapons and sophisticated systems while you're at it.YOU SHALL BE AS GODS much?
>>46822344Welcome to the party, Major!
Blowing everything up is becoming more tempting as the reports keep coming in.
Did anyone remember to pack an N2 mine in one of the bombers?
>>46822390Orders from High Command state that Research Facility A (Downtown) is not to be damaged under any circumstances.
>>46822234>>46822311I will ford the river, Major. There's no time to lose.
>>46822470>ford the riverthe word dysentery suddenly springs to mind
>>46822470Try and stay on the near bank. There's a few apartment buildings just before the river fork that can give you cover against that SWS.
Important question: Should we drop the N2 mines we bring with us before Anna is anywhere near the HQ?It could disrupt the AT field.
Should have caulked that Eva.
>>46822541That's assuming that the Angel is in the HQ. I'd rather keep those N2's handy for whatever's tanging up Downtown.
>>46822470Please hurry Anna, we don't have much time before comms are down...
[Second Child]I'm near the columns of smoke!Major? I'm picking up a weak signal on a emergency channel. Do you want me to patch us through?
>>46822624should we start bombing the HQ?
>>46822777yes,patch us through.ooc: nice dub trips
>>46822777Patch it through, we'll at least get a firing solution.Also nice GET Anna.
>>46822777Patch it through.>>46822541It might be worth dropping one one Unit 08, it will likely grow bigger and perhaps return to defend the core, wherever it is, once we start attacking it.
//20 minutes until complete takeover.
>>46822777Wow, I guess someone's still alive in this mess. Patch it through.
>>46822777Yeah, get us a clear cut on that.>>46822791Yeah, I think it's time to consider a more decisive plan. All bomber wings, I want to see a goddamn crater where Vancouver's Nerv HQ was yesterday!
>>46822777Make it so.
>>46822840Orphelia, if we cut the land connection and/or take you offline, will we halt the attack?

>>46822934We may not have liked each other Ms. Recording, but damn if you didn't just save us some time. See you on the other side.Let's blow this shit to hell after recovering EVA 08.New orders Anna, proceed to Unit 08's cage and extract him.
>>46822934ANNA, get to Unit 08's cage immediately to see if the pilot is still alive, all bomber drop loads on Vancouver immediately.
>>46822934Okay, so Vancouver is lost, their MAGI got infiltrated by an Angel in virus form. Now it's an aberration of growing flesh, probably that liquid stuff in the streets.Sixth child is good to go inside EVA unit 08, still in it's cage.I don't quite get the final line.
>>46822934Inform the CDF and UN forces of the recording as well, see if we can't get some cruise missile lobbed at Vancouver.
>>46822934Oh boy this is like audio-logs in System Shock 2 all over again.
>>46822934Update High Command as well that the Research Facility will most likely not survive, either by N2 or Angel growth.Unless of course they can tell us what it is and why it must survive.
Initiate OPERATION: THUNDERSTRUCKhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYFdldfYEJk
>>46822934Vancouver is lost then. Anna, get to Unit08s location, get that EVA out of there. Bombers, get me a goddamn firing solution on Vancouver's HQ, level the area and give the EVA's a door to attack the underground.
>>46822992>Lev------is --ity b--ore it's to--la-e. Th-- wi-l b---y fin-- ad--ce.Level this city before it's to late. This will be my final advice.Shit ... There must be another way!
>>46823087I don't think there is much we can do at this point Major. The best we can do is get Unit-08 and whatever other small assets we can out of here before they drop the bomb on Vancouver.
>>46823087She's already dead, if we had more than one EVA maybe. I don't think Anna could both resist the Growth in the core and a rogue EVA at the same time.
>>46822868//Taking me offline would leave us blind and vulnerable. It would also mean that we would lose contact with our forces. If this is a risk you're willing to take, I can begin the procedure.>>46822978>>46822982[Second Child]On my way!>>46822978>>46822966>>46823015>>46823047[CBW]Commencing bombing run. Let's get this over with.
>>46823087Our single EVA is already damaged and has no AT field, we're pretty fucked at this point. Its time to turn Canada's premier skiing city into a smoking hell.
>>46823118>>46823137>>46823196Can't we only break the ennemy A.T. Field with N2 mines and then try to fight our way to MAGI?What's inside Research facility A, could the 38th squadron bring it to us with their towing ropes?N2 mines were supposed to be our wildcard, not our solution!
>>46823175Standby procedures for it. Should complete takeover be imminent, execute it.
>>46823175>//Taking me offline would leave us blind and vulnerable. It would also mean that we would lose contact with our forces. If this is a risk you're willing to take, I can begin the procedure.Any chance of setting up supplementary channels of communication?
>>46823175CBW for the love of all that is good and sugoi in this world, PLEASE do not bomb near the Evas this time!
>>46823221The 38th is a F/A-23 squadron, major. They cannot tow.But I'm with you on this one. I'm not comfortable bombing a whole city, even if it's Vancouver.
>>46823221MAJOR! We have a duty to the security of this country! We have already lost this city and we are not about to lose our own!Believe you me, I would be the last to suggest something so rash, but we have already lost from the beginning. It's a matter of cleaning up and recouping our loses from what we have left.
>>46823253We can set it up before hand.
>>46823175>>46823221>>46823303We got some 20 minutes. I see two ways to approach this:A) salvage as much as possible and bomb the place, this means:- prying Unit 08 out of the cage and either activating it or princess carrying it out of the dropzone- if Unit 08 is good to go they can jog to the Research Facility together and pick whatever there is to save- get guys at the airbase in the air and then the fuck out of hereB) sending Unit 02 to the HQ assuming we can stop whatever's going on in there without having to bomb the whole place, this assumes we can get through Geofort protective layers in like 10 minutesas much as I'd like to save the city, I'm leaning towards A
>>46823303I'm sorry Rachel, but I don't think there is much choice here if we're to keep our units and assets intact. I...am not keen on the action myself either.
>>46823425Oh, yeah, also option of going to see Unit 08 first, and deciding after we know whether it is combat capable or not. Setting up backup comms in the meanwhile.
>>46823425Recordinglady said that 08 will be fine if we leave it in the cage. I say we pick up the research station and book ass as the bombers dump payload.
[CBW]We're in position. The A.T. Field is giving us trouble, but it's nothing we can't handle. Just give the order, Major. Let's wrap this up.
>A pile of fleshWhat if EVA-07 is now the angel? Would just killing that work?
>>46823528LIGHT EM UP!
>>46823528drop the payload now.
>>46823470The real question is if we need to finish this mission before Ophelia goes offline or if we can reasonably continue beyond that point.We might be able to set up backup comms, but we will lose analytics.
>>46823528Hold Position Captain, Anna's retrieving a VVIP from the NERV installation. You have discretion to open fire in support if she comes under attack but hold till she exfiltrates.
Aw shit we're gonna need a new thread soon.
>>46823528Start saturation CBW. And, please do not bomb EVA08s area until we confirm the unit's security.
>>46823563she's to the northwest and should be out of range of the payload.
>>46823582Oh. Well then, have we confirmed that CDF forces have pulled back from the immediate area?
>>46823303>even if it's VancouverTOP TIER WAIFU
>>46823618i'm pretty sure they bugged out when they started losing squads and have already finished evacuation. Get confirmation thought to be sure

>>46823990No stopping. That thing is the enemy of mankind and has obviously been roused by us.We're doing something right if its annoyed.
We have made a huge mistake.
>>46823916MAGI, what the hell is that?!
>>46823916fuck it, everybody bail out, Anna grab that EVA and haul ass, all other units haul ass out. Can we request a nuke strike on Vancouver right now.
>>46823916Get on the phone to the U.N. We're nuking Vancouver.
>>46823916In your face, motherfucker!
>>46823998>>46824042What if nukes won't kill it, what if nukes can't kill it, we can't just hit the panic button without knowing what we're dealing with. Though I would certainly make preparations to use it.
>>46824121Then we hit it with everything else.
>>46824072THIS. The mission is going pear-shaped, we need to make a decisive move now.
