Sensors triggered again, every day Ariadnan attacks on the Trident positions only intensified. It looks like the only way to stop it is to either side to go extinct. Lion Tremere and his Trident soldiers secured a perimeter around the Armory and identified their opponents. It was a Merovingian Rapid Response Force. Lion Tremere hated fighting these guys. After all the losses MRRF suffered from the CA, it felt like killing an endangered species. Among few grizzled veterans marched mostly new recruits, fresh from the academy.
Taqeul Officer tried to reach the enemy commander by radio, but it was picking up only angry french noises. It looks like his humble request for MRRF to retreat only triggered the French. Well, if a battle is unavoidable, at least they'll switch the viral with a vitamin rounds.
1. Defensive triad with Gao-Rael sniper, Kaeltar with symbiomates and Taagma posing as a Sukeul missile launcher just to mess a bit with the opponent.
2. Attacking triad with Sukeul HMG, Hatail Aelis Keesan Sensor-KHD and a Makaul
3. Liberto minelayer
4. Draal SMG minelayer
5. Two Chaksa Auxiliars with heavy flamethrowers
6. Clipsos minelayer
7. Leuty's retinue triad: Sakiel Leutenant with the viral combi, Kamael paramedic, Kriigel SMG a.k.a. 'Living Jammer'
8. Esteemed Tohaa Diplomatic Delegate 'Diplomat-chan'
Dropping a paratrooper on any flank would require it, surviving either two sniper shots or two viral combi shots. Seeing that my opponent decided to spend a regular order to leach the impetuous Duroc in the airplane above the battlefield.
So it's time to shine for the MRRF's best, chasseurs! One of them moved to my right flank, had an uneventful shoot out with a Gao-Rael and Sakiel until a stray viral shot put him down. Another Chasseur decided to open up the gates of the Armory with his passcode. Loup-Garou haris advanced to the midfield. Suddenly a low howl heralded a descent of a Duroc. He got out from his leash! And he run up the field to claim the Armory and all the loot inside for himself!
Sukeul triad moved forward, HMG blasting carelessly inside the Armory packed with all sorts of munitions and explosives. Duroc couldn't evade incoming firestorm and went down along with a chasseur that was so nice to open the gates.
Finally, two Metro HMG in the distance got hit, one of them survived in the unconscious state.
Sakiel and his triad weren't so lucky and in the viral duel with Loup Garou he lost and went in the unconscious state. Kamael paramedic decided to put his comrade out of the misery and cut out his cube.
Hatail Aelis Keesan moved inside of the Armory to reclaim it for Tohaa.
Margot quietly outflanked the aliens, ready to avenge her fallen friend. She blasted Chaksa and a mine on her way and then shot a Makaul in the back. Finally, she decided to attack the Sukeul HMG. She climbed up the ladder and fired in the trident soldier's back. But both the Diplomat-chan and Taagma shot back at Margot. MRRF spec-ops successfully removed a Sukeul HMG but Taagma breaker got Margot as well. One of Metro HMG guys luckily evaded being chopped by the 112's axe and opted to return back to action.
One of the Chasseurs decided to move up the field deep in the Tohaa's zone but got hit by both the Kriigel's eraser and a mine, rendered him both isolated and dead. Loup-Garou tried to move closer to the Armory, they killed a Kamael paramedic. But Diplomat-chan and her trusty flash pulse prevailed, protecting Aelis Keesan from the deadly viral shots.
"It's Draal time! :3"
Saboteur activated a stratocloud and quickly moved up the field. However deadly might Loup-Garou be, a Draal is deadlier! In the following brutal shoot-out, Draal lost his pokemon buddy and all the Loup-Garou ended up unconscious. Hatail Aelis Keesan used this moment of peace to quickly loot the panoplies in search for anything valuable for Trident's cause.
A lonely chasseur daringly assaulted the Trident positions at the Ammo. But unfortunately, both the Draal and Aelis Keesan proved to be quite tough and survived it. And soon Chasseur runs out of orders.
Clipsos-chan moved inside the Armory too, quite unhappy with being left behind on the battlefield. Draal helped to end the suffering of one of the Loup-Garou and scored an "Extreme Prejudice".
