Sorry for the delay today, but Jurassic World is a great fucking movie. Go and watch it or I'll send the MOTHERFUCKING T-REX after you!Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandArchive:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Endless+Sky+Ace+Combat+QuestOther Quests: http://pastebin.com/KWGJCSbTRULES AND STATS: http://pastebin.com/5q9fPFjzYou are KARLA WEISS, a Belkan fighter pilot looking to carve your own place in the skies!"Karla, are you listening to me?" Samantha grunts, snapping you back to attention."Huh, what?" You blink, having zoned out for a bit."Are you okay, Karla? You don't seem to be a hundred percent." Samantha raises an eyebrow. "If you can't even get through a briefing without getting distracted, that doesn't make me confident of your ability in a cockpit.""Don't worry, I'm fine." You shake your. So far you were just thinking of the Butterflies' mangled planes and Dawn's injuries. There was a lot of blame to pass around: OB for attacking them, Atlas for forcing them to stay longer than they had to, and Belka for putting that damn vault there in the first place. Well, there was only one faction in there you could actually go after right now.(cont)
>>40567854"Right, so anyways." Samantha returns to the briefing projection. "Atlas has finally come clean and revealed the existence of the Vault they were after. Apparently, OB was waiting for the corps to exhaust their strength fighting over it before swooping in to snatch it themselves. It's now our job to secure the site again, or make sure it doesn't fall into enemy hands. It's not going to be easy. The place is swarming with mobile AA and enemy planes, not to mention a big number of enemy ground forces.""What kind of support can we expect?" Lilian asks."Not much, I'm afraid." Samantha shakes her head. "Much of Atlas' air force was shot down or is too damaged to fly. I've contacted our own HQ for support, but the only team they could get down here on such short notice is Wolf's."Oh, wonderful."However, Irons has said that they can get a few of their fighters, including the remaining Butterflies up in the air. However, due to the damage they suffered earlier, they won't be at a full fighting capacity. But at this point, I'd take whatever I can get.">No way, they're in no shape to fight again so soon.>I agree, we need all the help we can get.>Other
>>40567866>>No way, they're in no shape to fight again so soon.We'll be too worried keeping them in the air for them to be an asset.

Beside, at one point the rightful ruler(s) will come back to his turf to aid his new successor.
>>40567912I've put my hopes down for that preview. I feel I might be disappointed.
>>40567866>No way, they're in no shape to fight again so soon. Also reminder that we need to contact Papa Weiss and mention the Cipher dream/vision soon.
>>40567912Actually, Kono posted to his Instagram that he's headed to E3, and he's carrying an Occulus.
>>40567854>>>No way, they're in no shape to fight again so soon.They're down a member and the rest are shaken up beyond belief.Even Aces need a breather every now and then.
>>40567866>No way, they're in no shape to fight again so soon.Besides, they don't need to hear Karla swearing at OB over an open radio channel while she shoots super-planes out of the sky.
>>40568014>Occulus Ace CombatPlease?
>>40568036"Oh my""wow, thats certainly new""Belkan sure know how to swear and get to the points"
>>40568014>Ace combat with occulus rift intergrationfuck yesuckyes
Ace Combat Quest?Ace Combat Quest.
>>40568066I think there's a difference between "swearing" and "threatening to sodomise the enemy with an AMRAAM"
>>40568105I don't think Karla would be threatening to sodomise the enemy with an AMRAAM, more like promising.
>>40568074>Occulus Camera controls + Ace Combat Dogfight mechanics = Strike Witches OnlineI've hit a brick wall in the development of Loki's Angels. Turning to operation: Idol@cespuchipilots as a diversion.

>>40568122Yeah I imagine that people would be rather terefied of the angry belkan running at you while holding a missile like a baseball bat while screaming about removing terrorist/reclaiming clay
>>40568133>Strike witches onlineBut witches don't have missiles (Sanya non-withstanding)
>>40567866"No way." You shake your head. "They're in no shape to fight again so soon.""Well, that's less numbers for you." Samantha frowns. "The other corps might send units in to attack as well, though I can't even begin to tell you if they'll cooperate or try to attack you as well. Best to err on the side of caution for that.""Noted." You nod."Ground assets likewise are going to be very limited." Samantha notes, pointing to a worryingly small number of blue dots on the map. "We have enough for a fast attack force to quickly get into the target and salvage what they can before scuttling the whole Vault. They could use some dedicated support, however. That's where you come in, Amy.""All right!" Amy's eyes light up. "What kind of ground opposition are we expecting?" You ask warily."Like I said, a lot of mobile AA units. Mostly AA guns and short range missile launchers." Samantha says. "But there's also a lot of assorted AFVs and infantry on the ground, too, and our force is mostly heliborne, making them VERY vulnerable to fire. You can expect lots of aerial enemies, too, but with Wolf's team backing you up, I think you've already got enough anti-air capability...>Have Amy fly the A-10 for maximum SUPPORT.>Have Amy fly the Super Hornet to retain some dogfight capability.>Other

>>40568277Never read Strike Witches 89 quest, aren't ya?
>>40568278>Have Amy fly the A-10 for maximum SUPPORT.I imagine that all the enemy aircraft will be more worried about the angry F-15 that's being piloted by previously mentioned angry Belkan.
>>40568278>Have Amy fly the Super Hornet to retain some dogfight capability.Load her up with LAGM or FAEB's. She can still go full Osean if she really wants too.
>>40568277It's a strike witches 89 quest joke, I reckon.
>>40568318When anon said Strike witches online, I assumed he meant that the game would be set in the original strike witches universe. Not in the SW'89 universe.I have read Strike witches '89 Ice is best girl
>>40568357I believe the word you're looking for is 'timeframe'.SWQ and SW89 exist in the same universe but different points of time.
>>40568325Will our RADIATING ANGER FURY KILL MAIM BURN be a natural ECM for our troops?
>>40568439Probably more like the angry missiles of hot death we'll be flinging at them.
>>40568414I meant the strike witches anime, not planefags SWQ.I really ought to be more specific ought I?

>>40568439I imagine it would be less of an ECM, more like the enemy prioritising Karla because what she's doing to those poor Morgans could be classed as a war-crime.
>>40568496Pixy's Morgan is best Morgan. The rest a shit.
>>4056852402>01It's Scientific Fact.

>>40568576"Yo buddy, you still alive?"
>>40568278"Amy, sounds like a job for the Warthog." You grin."YEESSSSSSS!" Amy squeals. "Those Belkan pricks won't know what hit 'em!""All right, I don't have to repeat that OB now apparently has a squadron of Morgans at their disposal, so be EXTREMELY careful when you're out there!" Samantha warns. "Your pilot skill is going to matter the most here, so make it count!"With that, you and your wingmates file out of the briefing room and towards the hangars. Lara then slides up next to you, and uncharacteristically concerned look on her face. "Hey, Karla, you okay?" She asks."Of course I am, why do you ask?" You grunt."Well, uh, because you look, uh, different." Lara frowns with uncertainty. "Like, like, you're not just out to fly.

>>40568740go and reread the archives or at least the previous thread...
>>40568740Shot down a daughteru, injured her heavily.
>>40568724that's the point. There was a certain order in the Round Table when Cypher was it's Lord. But now the land is now lawless and without a Demon Lord to guard Belka's treasures, the world is thrown into chaotic fights as companies and countries war for what's buried underneath.
>>40568740He nearly killed Dawn.So we're going to fucking murder him, his squadron and maybe his family.

>>40568889>not Chooser of the Slain
>>40568920hmmm,"Death Angel of the Round Table"?
>>40568889Chooser of the Slain is a nickname for the Valkyries, and it works well for this.
>>40568936When allies refer to Karla, they'll drop the "Death" part in "Death Angel of the Round Table". When enemies refer to Karla, they don't drop the "Death" part in the Title.>Allies: Look! it's the Angel of the Round Table! We're saved!>Enemies: Oh Shit! It's the Death Angel of the Round Table! Retreat! Karla: "Here comes the snow bitches!"
>>40568601"You're damn right I am." You scowl. "They almost killed Dawn! How can I not be pissed about that?""I just gotta warn ya, Karla. I've seen pilots get caught up with their emotions like you are right now and... well... things didn't end well for them." Lara says worriedly. "I'll be fine, Lara." You assure her. "You have nothing to worry about.""I hope so." Lara sighs.At this point, you've all reached the hangar, and split up to tend to each of your individual planes. Amy skips over to her trusty Warthog while Lara and Lilian head off to their Eagle and Typhoon respectively. You storm your way over to your own Eagle, where Smokey is waiting."Huh, never thought I'd see someone crankier than me." Smokey grunts. "I'll keep it short, then. What are you looking to mount on yer plane?">AA Weapons (Choose 1):>4AAM>QAAM>AtG Weapons (Choose 1)>Unguided Bomb>Cluster Bomb>Napalm

You all know napalm is a relatively shitty weapon against vehicles right?
>>40569095So? The idea is to provide area denial to the enemy so they can't advance on the vault while our guys are in there rigging demolition charges.
>>40569095We melt the humans operating them.
>>40569095I dunno man, I tend to pack some napalm in some AtG missions and they haven't failed me so far.
>>40569119That's not how it works.
>>40569095Napalm + Unused Ammunition + Tight spaces in a vault = Big Boom = Denial of Assets = Super Salty enemy.The math is never wrong.
>>40569044>QAAM>Cluster Bomb>>40569135>Tight spaces in a vaultour napalm won't be able to get inside the vault you retard
>>40569116>>40569135>>40569123I simply don't trust our AtG rolls for the precision that napalm requires seeing as how it only roughly goes in a straight line when there's nothing else to burn.
>>40569148YES. ALL MY YES. THIS TITLE IS A WINNER
>>40569095No, the Avenging Valkyrie of the Round Table. When an innocent has been harmed by evil in B7R, the Valkyrie rides forth to dispense Justice and Punishment to the guilty.
>>40569044>>QAAM>Cluster Bombfucking morons thinking napalm will be useful in supporting our heli assault force...
>>40569187It burns the puny mortals manning the AA guns.
>>40569116Or we could blow up the enemy and neutralize them outright

>>40569044"Let's load up on QAAMs and Napalm." You instruct your crew chief."Got it." Smokey nods. "We'll get on it right away.""Wait up!" Someone yells.You turn to see Echo, Thunder, and Lightning dashing up to you, their faces creased with worry as well. "What are you three doing here?" You blink."W-we were just here to wish you luck!" Lightning stammers."Yeah! And to tell you to get tear those buttholes apart!" Thunder nods.Echo merely silently nods. "Dawn also has a message for you.""Oh?""Come back safe."You're not sure why, but those words hit you particularly hard. "Yeah... I'll make sure to." You nod absentmindedly as you climb into the cockpit of your Eagle."Hey, scram, ya little twerps!" Smokey shuffles forward to shoo the Butterflies away. "We got planes ready to take off! It ain't safe here!"The Butterflies manage one last wave to you before running off. You quickly receive clearance to take off, and within a few minutes your flight is outbound towards the Vault."Heads up, Wild Cards, but Wolf Team is behind schedule." Loki warns as you set your course. "I recommend holding back to wait for them.""But won't that give them more time to prepare for our arrival?" Lilian asks."Even when he's not here he's a pain in the ass." Amy groans.>Better wait for Wolf to get here.>Can't waste any time. Better head in first.>Other

"I might as well speak up and be the party pooper, but what are we really gonna do when those Morgans show up?" "Fight them, of course!" Lara says happily. "It'll definitely be challenge!""Yeah, but like, are you sure about that?" Amy sighs. "I mean, I seem to recall you h aving problems with just ONE.""We'll manage." You try to assure her. "They're probably not too experienced in them yet, anyways.""That's a BIG probably." Amy sighs, not quite convinced."Hey hey hey, how are my favorite airborne girls doing today?" Wolf chortles as you see four new IFF contacts wink on your screen."Wolf, how many times have I told you to turn on your transponders when not in a combat situation?" Loki says in exasperation. "What, and make your job easy? Why would we do that?" Wolf laughs. "Anyways, I heard you got a bit of a One Belka problem in these parts. Hope these guys put up a good fight!""Oh, they will." You say. "Sooner than you think." Loki warns. "I have an enemy squadron moving in to intercept.""We'll handle 'em." Wolf says, he and his team of Raptors accelerating.

>>40569259>>40569222The Three Destinies of The Valkyrie>Knight: You see the Valkyrie flying high in the battlefield. She flits through the air with the grace of a monarch, neutralizing enemies left and right. You and your wingmates fly at her like a Rowdy yet organized mob, but despite the number of dirty tricks you and your squad employ, she always somehow gets the better of you. As you watch the burning hunk of metal that was once your plane. You smile at an odd thought as you watch her fight in the battlefield. Almost like a knight...>Soldier: You see the Valkyrie soaring to and fro in the battlefield. Her moves are quick and precise. Her efficiency in her fighting so inhuman that it's scary to some degree. 'How can a pilot be that cold?' you wonder as you wrestle with your flight stick to pull off everything your instructor taught you hoping you might be able to shake the ever-blaring missile locks into silence. But in the end, you were hit. As you float down gently on your ejection seat, you see the Valkyrie again from a different perspective. Despite her inhuman efficiency, she always hesitates for a second before she lets the missiles fly. You grimace inwardly at the thought as memories of conflicting orders and replay in your head. A constant reminder of what it means to be a soldier.>Mercenary: You see the Valkyrie dive headlong into the battlefield. She blazes through the air, amidst flak, flares, and missiles, uncaring to the damage slowly accumulating on her bird as she closes in on your damaged bird. Of all the things that scared you throughout your career, the Valkyrie was always the one that gets to you. Every so often, you would hear survivor horror stories from pilots who wtiness the bloodbath ensuing from the Bitch's lust for kills. Now you're one of hers. The last coherent thought before your fiery death was spent cursing that money whoring pilot. Cursing her for her death to be as bloody and violent as all of the kills she made as a merc.

>>40569708"All right, happy hunting, Wolf." You say. "Also, you find a plane called Tombstone, you tell me right away, got it?""I'll keep that in mind." Wolf says playfully. You glance at your radar screen and see Wolf's team mixing it up with the enemy squadron of what looks to be Su-35s. However, you force yourself to tear your attention away and focus on the matter at hand. Up ahead, you can see the Vault, where OB was already starting to form a defensive perimeter."Wild Cards, we're going in." You hear Jager's voice. "No time for anything fancy. Just clear a path.""You heard the boss." You say. "One can of BRRRRT coming up!" Amy cackles.>Go on a bomb run.>Go high and provide air cover.>Other

>>40570497You Eagle streaks forward, providing additional forward momentum as you release your two bombs, sending a pair of dull green cylinders tumbling forward before bursting open in bright orange flame. You can see the bright flame engulf numerous vehicles and emplacements on the ground. You had no doubts that there were lots of people down there too, being burned alive by the harsh, artificial fire. But they chose their lot, so they would reap what they sowed. Meanwhile, to your right, you could see Amy's Warthog dive in, launching cluster missiles and firing off its vulcan cannon on full auto. Tanks and AA guns are ripped apart and blown to pieces under Amy's relentless assault, their return fire almost ineffectually bouncing off her craft's armored hull. As this happened, Lara and Lilian began climbing to a higher altitude, both to avoid AA fire and to seek out enemy fighters. Indeed, a pair of Flankers try to intercept them and are quickly annihilated by a pair of missiles fired from your wingmates."Good job, girls." Jager's voice buzzes. "A couple more runs like that, and we should be good!""Heads up, we have six bogies coming in. No ID, but they're coming in FAST. Must be the Morgans."

>>40570854"All right, Magnet, can you handle things down here?" You ask."You know I can!" Amy says cheerfully as a missile ricochets off her left wingtip. "Hot damn, that was a close one!"You pull up on your stick and begin to gain altitude as quick as you can, making a beeline straight for the oncoming Morgan formation. Judging from what you can see, Tombstone was definitely among them. He wasn't even bother to hide his IFF code. However, he seemed to be tangling with Lara, while Lilian was trying to keep his wingmen off of her. Naturally, though, Lilian was having a hard time dealing with 5 to 1 odds.>Head straight for Tombstone.>Assist Lilian.>Other

"I do happen to be in a bit of a jam right now!"Indeed, you could see Lilian's Typhoon twisting and weaving through the air, only just managing to stay out of the sights of her pursuers while at the same time making aggressive passes at any Morgan setting its sights on Lara or Amy. It was just a massive tangle of metal and exhaust as their contrails left white trails in the sky. "Hold tight, Angel." You say as you missile lock whines.>Roll 3d10 (AtA roll. You need a 6 or lower)

>>40571292Your three missiles streak out, weaving and winding through the air as they try to find their targets. They couldn't seem to get a good radar lock due to the Morgans' built in ECM suites, but they do manage to get a track on their large and very hot engines. Like hounds, the missiles chase after one Morgan and strike it nearly simultaneously. The Morgan spins out of control and shreds itself apart, raining down small bite sized pieces to the desert sand below. Meanwhile, Lilian manages to get a lock on her own target and lets off a long cannon burst, ripping her target's engines to pieces and sending the Morgan tumbling out of the sky.Meanwhile, Lara was still tangling with Tombstone, though the OB ace was worryingly on her tail rather than the other way around. Lara wasn't calling for help right now, but then again, she was not the kind of person to ask for it. "Watch out Valk, we're not done here yet!" Lilian grunts as the remaining three Morgans circle around to engage.>Attack!>Evade!>Assist Lara!>Other

>>40571611You fire off three missiles at Tombstone as he tries to settle in behind Lara. Thanks to your prompt firing, Tombstone is forced to break off, pulling an almost impossibly tight turn at the last possible second. Your two standard missiles lose track and fail to reacquire, uselessly shooting past Tombstone's Morgan. However, the QAAM isn't fooled, and circles around and smashes into one of Tombstone's tailfins, shattering it like glass. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Tombstone is out of the fight just yet, and he begins circling around to try and reengage."All right, thanks Valk, but I think I can handle this now." Lara says.>We'll take him down together.>I'll go help Lilian, then.>This bastard is mine.>Other

Everybody wake up! It's time for snow!
>>40571897Both you and Lara launch missiles while Tombstone does the same, trading missiles in midair. Tombstone's missiles fail to hit you and streak past either side of your Eagle harmlessly. You and Lara answer with your own missiles launches. Tombstone bobs and weaves in response, but you see one of your missiles explode in proximity of his craft, showering his plane with shrapnel and warping his right wing slightly. In the next split second, you and Lara pass by Tombsone in the blink of an eye."Haha, we really showed him!" Lara cheers."Don't celebrate just yet." You mutter. "That Tombstone can be a relentless bastard."However, you notice that something else didn't feel quite. You looked down to see OB forces scattering, though not away from Amy's Warthog, surprisingly enough."Jager, what the hell is going on down there?!? You ask."I don't know. We're getting some serious seismic activity so we're bugging out!" Jager cries. "Sounds like this whole place is gonna go down! Move move MOVE!"You look down to see a number of little black spots signifying Jager and his men, who were quickly evacuating the vault amid the burning and wrecked tanks and AFVs that you and Amy had been doing for so long. You're about to ignore it and continue to engage Tombstone when something else happens that you weren't prepared for. You see the sand spin and shift as you watch and line in the middle of the desert begin to open up, revealing a massive runway underneath.It's then that you realize your mistake.This wasn't a Vault you were fighting over. It was a hangar.A really damn big one.>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget Vertical Tanks on Saturday and PJ Witches on Sunday!

A SUPER WEAPON WHICH WILL UNITE A NEW BELKA FOR A NEW AGE!
>>40572075OHH NOOOOOOOALSO STORYTIIIIIIIME:From his cockpit, the wasteland below was a blurry mix of reds and sandy browns, dotted sparsely by splotches of green–hardy trees that had latched onto the sweet spots that would feed them the precious nutrients they needed to survive in this hostile but oh so valuable wasteland. It was a dismal sight, and no matter how many times he was told, it seemed unreal to him that people had died over such a sorry patch of earth.With a frown, he rolled his fighter out of its inverted flight and level, feeling a rush as blood drained from his head and fed itself back into his body. He shook his head to clear the fuzziness and made a mental note to stop doing that. In addition to the various other corporations that had laid a claim to what lay in what was known as the Round Table, One Belka–fanatics devoted to their motherland and its resurgence as the military superpower it once was–had hidden itself all across the zone and unlike the Corps, who at least had the decency to announce their presence, the OB freaks quite literally came out of nowhere.‘Gamble, we’ve just had a ping on our radar, barely fifty kilometres from your current position, could be nothing but…’The Dahl ace’s lips quirked and he felt a sudden surge of energy rush through him at the prospect that this dull border patrol might become imminently more interesting.
>>40572075Wait whatis this ace combat infinity again
>>40572122‘Got a heading to go with that, Bogeyman?’ he asked the AWACS in charge of monitoring Dahl’s corner of B7R.‘Sure thi–’And that was as far as he got before alerts began to scream.‘Gamble! Break and evade! They’ve got you lit up!’‘Thanks for the heads up,’ Gamble replied sourly as he threw his fighter–a SEPECAT Jaguar with a shocking white paintjob and a scarlet stripe painted down the spine of the craft, with a pair of tossed dice painted on the tail and on the fuselage just below the cockpit–into a sharp dive an ordinary Jaguar could not possibly have performed without shearing its wings off.‘Four contacts Gamble! They’re right on top of you!’ Bogeyman shouted frantically as he relayed the information the AWACS formidable sensory suite information picked up.‘Not quite,’ Gamble said, straining against the tug of gravity, ‘*I’m* on top of *them*.’The four OB fighters–for they could not possibly have been anyone else–had flown in very low to avoid detection until waiting to strike. Against a less experienced pilot, someone would no doubt have a fresh kill mark on his warbird.Gamble, however, was not inexperienced.A hissing missile streaked past his cockpit, so close that Gamble almost felt his heart stop. It was almost immediately followed by four dark blurs–MiG-29s.‘Got four MiGs who want to play rough; One Belka or I’ll eat my flight suit. I’m engaging.’‘We’re rerouting another patrol flight to your location, just hold on until they–’‘Don’t bother,’ Gamble interrupted; a broad, ecstatic grin on his face, ‘there are only four of them; this’ll be over in a flash… besides, this is the most fun I’ll have had all week.’
>>40572127STANDBY FOR AN EMERGENCY SORTIE ORDER!!!
>>40572135‘I repeat,’ Bogeyman said, with a steely tone that reminded Gamble almost of his mother, he wondered if she was doing okay, ‘a patrol flight is being rerouted to your location. They will be there within five minutes. Don’t do anything crazy now.’‘May I remind you who it is exactly that you’re talking to?’ Gamble replied smarmily before terminating the link. Bogeyman would no doubt be unimpressed, but what the hell did it matter? His bosses loved the figures he brought in for smashing planes, and he loved the percentile of those figures he got from smashing planes that he could spend on his own plane so that he could smash even more planes. It was a win-win situation for everybody.And speaking of smashing planes…Gamble pulled out of his dive and hounded after the flight of MiGs, which had broken off into pairs. Gamble scoffed. Against only one fighter they’d have been much better off splitting up and trying to box him in.Gamble lit his afterburners and screamed towards the OB aggressors, his tricked-out, lightweight fighter catching up to the closest pair in no time at all, before lighting one up with a missile lock. He smirked as the fighter tried to jink and weave to lose the lock, but the manoeuvres were amateurish at best and Gamble stayed on him even as his partner broke off to try and circle around.Gamble launched the missile, watching the warhead blast towards its target before connecting with the engines of the craft and detonating. The MiG exploded, a furious, fiery orange flower blooming over the sun baked airspace, shards of metal scattering from the blast like petals on the wind.‘Corporate dog!’ Gamble heard a heavily accented voice rage over an open channel, ‘Get out of our country before we *annihilate* you!’Gamble couldn’t resist.‘Good luck,’ he teased.
Well damn. We got to kill a Heavy command cruiserThanks for running Merc.
>>40572142He wheeled his fighter around in pursuit of the downed MiG’s partner, and was rewarded to catch the OB fighter mid-turn. Mumbling praises to Dahl’s air engineering branch, Gamble switched deftly to guns and let fly. The 30mm cannon rounds shredded the fuselage and the MiG began to drop out of the sky, trailing thick, oily smoke as it began its final descent. Moments later the cockpit blew and out popped the pilot, chute deploying after a slight delay. Gamble could have sworn he saw the figure shaking a fist at him, and he snorted at the idea.An alert began to wail, snapping his attention back to the matter at hand. Seconds later the wail became a blaring alarm, signifying that he’d been painted by another missile and had scant moments to work out a plan of action. Fortunately, he had an idea. It was a crazy, ballsy manoeuvre that he’d achieved exactly once before… but how slack-jawed would those OB bozos be if he pulled it off?Gamble pushed his Jaguar into another steep dive, pushing his engines as far as they would go and picking up speed at a rate a lot of his old instructors would have denoted as suicidal. All the while the alarm screeched with increasing frequency as it tracked the proximity of the missile. If the link were still open, Gamble had no doubt Bogeyman would be screaming at him.At barely 1,000 feet–the alert a constant wail the missile was so close–Gamble made his move: A sharp pull. A sudden cut to engine power followed by a quick deployment of the airbrakes. A sensation of being crushed into his seat, like God himself was stepping on him…
>>40572153>Got to killMore like about to face off with one.
>>40572156That is some mean G-force pulling there.
>>40572156And the missile passed on by, wobbling awkwardly as it tried to re-track.A quick burst from his guns shredded the fins and, lacking any ability to keep itself airborne, the missile fell uselessly towards the ground before detonating in mid-air.Gamble hit the throttle and pulled up into a steady climb. He noticed with some amusement that the OB MiGs hadn’t pursued him, and were instead starting to circle around him like two wary predators.‘So…’ Gamble chirped once he had his breath back, ‘anyone up for Round Two?’***They had not, unfortunately, been up for another crack at him. After a moment’s pause both craft had turned tail and fled in whichever direction they had come from. He had entertained the idea of pursuing them but scant seconds later his backup flight arrived and there was no adequate reason he could think of to hound the retreating survivors.‘Still in one piece there Gamble?’The voice belonged to one of Dahl’s flight leads, one Dan Meyer, a capable flyer, and an even better friend–usually.‘You have eyes don’t you? See for yourself.’Meyer’s craft–an F-15 with an ugly dark green camo pattern–sidled up next to him and, watching, Gamble saw the pilot within crane his head to inspect his Jag.‘I dunno man; I think I see a scratch on your left wing. Good news is it’s superficial. Bad news is that it’s scratched your paintjob.’‘Those bastards,’ Gamble said, putting on a gravelly, threatening growl, ‘I ought to string them up just for that.’

More One Belka contacts; and what we think might be an Atlas flight not far out from them.

Didn’t they hire out that PMC to do their dirty work for them?’‘Yeah, and from what I’ve heard, some of them are pretty good. Should be right up your alley.’‘Well what the hell are we waiting for then?’ Gamble cried. ‘Let’s go rip something up!’‘Oh, and Gamble? Bogeyman asked me to tell you to put him back on the line. He’d like a word…’Gamble felt his spirits dim as he remembered he was probably on Bogeyman’s shit list as of now. Then, as was so often the case in these situations, he remembered that he was doing something he loved.‘What the hell, tell him I’ll put him back on,’ Gamble informed his friend. Moments later his ears were filled with a cacophony of expletives, cuss words and threatening promises from the enraged AWACS operator, much of which he tuned out as he powered on toward another glorious fight on what might turn out to be a glorious day.
