From where She was standing, it looked like the City was under attack. Explosions flared in the distance and even up at her lofty perch she could hear the incessant echoes of weapons fire. The riots had triggered earlier than anyone could have anticipated, and they hadn’t been able to move in time. Already, the cities resident Mechwarriors and peacekeeping forces were crushing the assets that had been carefully put in place.But the operation had to go ahead. She glanced at her watch, taking careful note of the second hand. 26...27...28...29…

Bright flashes of blue light lit several key substations all around Black Hills, and one by one entire sections of the district blinked into darkness, For a single, precious moment, there was silence. It was time.

The lances ascended from their quiet, ‘abandoned’ storage bays, 'mech after 'mech carefully moving out from the alleyways and onto the main avenues, the rain pattering on the grey, emblem-less hulls of the Battlemechs. In the dim twilight, through the dark shadows cast by the now powerless skyscrapers, the lance made full speed towards the International Zone.

Ingrid yanks back on the throttle with the blackjack stumbling backwards into a building as she dodged the coming fodder, catching the swipe of the laser along her left canon. The bump into the building jostled her around but she was already gating the legs in the other direction, eager to heed Cortez' command.

Strafing off, she swung the torso square to the hunchback and began to unload her cannons.

With the Battlemaster shooting what it could, Masumi began backing up her mech after her leg was punched by it’s massive hand. With a quick aim, she fired her Gauss Rifle. She watched as the round blasted forth from her mech’s arm. Cutting it’s path to the Battlemaster, it struck home...

Gauss Rifle: Roll, 9 Hit. Location, 12 Headshot. 15 dmg. Battlemaster is destroyed. (Masumi claims salvage of the mech)

With one target down, she torso twisted and her site’s were on a slow yet lethal Urban mech. Firing from it’s left side, she pulled her triggers for her medium pulse lasers. Each laser had struck the moving mech and her eyes watched as her target had changed direction to fight her while she had pulled the triggers. Her lasers pulsed on the armor and joints of the heavy light weight mech. She watched as the left arm and left leg fall to the ground now knocked out of the fight.


Medium Pulse Lasers that hit:
Roll, 5 Hit. Location, 5 Right leg. 6 dmg
Roll, 7 Hit. Location, 9 left leg. 6 dmg (Left Leg Destroyed)
Roll, 7 Hit. Location , 6 right torso, 6 dmg
Roll, 7 Hit. Location, 10 Left Arm, 6 dmg (Left Arm destroyed)
Roll, 10 Hit. Location, 2 (roll no crits) Left torso. 6 dmg

Turning on her mic, she would speak to the BlackJack and the Roughneck while the Crab was already in full retreat and also tried to fire and missed all of their shots. “Roughneck and BlackJack, start your retreat and I’ll cover your 6’s. I got enough armor and ammo to hold them off for a little while. Long enough for you to be gone and linked up with the other Mercs in the International Zone.” 4 mechs down so far, 4 more to go...even though the one enemy mech was near death with it’s entire front peppered.

Cortes continued to rip the enemy mech apart, his double heat sinks keeping him plenty cool as his array of weapons tore up the damaged Wyvern. The sight of an enemy mech turning and finishing off a crippled ally was not good news, and Cortes kept moving the Fyrdman towards Ingrid to help back her up. As he tangled with the Wyvern, he sped up his cannon, with missing RAC rounds collapsing a building behind his target as he shredded its leg.

RAC/5 (2/4 Hits, Right Leg, Lower Jump Jet Destroyed)

After the damage taken to the Quickdraw from the BlackJack, it was missing a lot of parts of it. Powering down it’s weapons, the pilot turned the mech around and began retreating. But the one Hunchback turned their focus on their retreating ally and fired his AC20. The round blasted through the center torso. The round blew out the engine causing the mech to fall over. The Wyvern fired what it could with the heat gathering up inside of it. The Battlemaster fired its pair of Medium Lasers and Machine Guns at Hatamoto and then punched at her. The two Urbanmechs and Hunchback attempted to fire at Ingrid.

Ingrid zoned in and continued firing away, the sweat rolling off her neck quickly evaporated as the heat in the cockpit began to rise. As more of her rounds successfully landed, her confidence rose to continue the cadence. The stationary mech foddered at the Quickdraw in a fit of tunnel vision, she had every intention to put it into the ground. Cortes orders echoed over the radio but Ingrid was focused like a dog with a bone, even the pain across her skull faded behind the cracking of her autocannons and coil wine of the lasers.

The Crab next to her took successive hits and the explosion of shrapnel off the cockpit caused Ingrid to double take, snapping out of her laser focus... and reality kicked in... They were outgunned. In the back of her memory, she recalled and finally processed Cortes's orders...

"R-right - rodger... uhm---" Ingrid found the throttle and initiated her reverse before she could check for anything behind her.

Cortes cursed in his native tongue as Jaida's Crab took punishing damage. Fyrdman was tanking like a champ, and now what seemed to be an allied mech of a design he didn't recognize was now in the fray, but with the arrival of the enemy reinforcements they were still outgunned. Risky still hadn't shown, Ingrid was injured, Jaida's mech was perilously close to scrap, and he wouldn't be able to tank for much longer.
"Fighting Withdraw!" He ordered as he unleashed another barrage of his weapons at the Wyvern. "There's no point in dying here! Pull back into the International Zone!"
He adjusted his comms as Fyrdman warned him of reduced armor in the left arm. Ignoring it, he broadcast another alert to the larger peacekeeping forces.
"ENEMY BATTLEMECHS PUSHING IN FROM THE BLACK HILLS. REINFORCEMENTS REQUESTED."

Jaida

The damage was now aimed at her as her mech was shaken back and forth from multiple hits. Pain was starting to course throughout her body. Her eyes went wide when she saw an urban mech with an AC-20 coming up towards her aimed at her cockpit. The round blasted out. She quickly undid the straps of her safety harness and dove to the floor of the mech as best as she could. Half of her cockpit was torn into with pain jolting through her brain from it causing blood to come forth out of her new injury. Climbing back into her seat and strapping back in, she quickly took the controls and made the Crab to move out of the way by running around, but her focus was on that head shooter. As she made it look like she was leaving, she torso twisted and pulled the triggers, hitting the light mech.

Left arm, Large Laser and medium laser
Large Laser: 7 dmg done to Right Arm (AC 20), no armor left and 9 critical points left.

Right arm, Large Laser and Medium Laser
Large Laser, 7 points to left torso, no armor left and one Internal structure destroyed
Medium Laser, 5 points of dmg done to Left Arm leaving one point of armor left

Center torso Medium Laser
Medium Laser, 5 points of dmg to left leg leaving 3 points of armor left.

Looking across the battle field through the opening of her cockpit, she saw a Draconis Assault mech rushing up from behind the Roughneck. Jaida couldn’t tell if the mech was friendly or foe. “Fyrdman, contact behind you!”

Masumi

The 80 ton Assault mech was rushing as fast as she could. She passed the Heavy Mech in her charge as she brought up her sword that caused the badly damaged Wyvern to flinch for a moment and made a gap for her. Passing the Wyvern, her target was the Battlemaster 1D. The Draconis Commander pulled her triggers...

Left arm, Gauss Rifle
Gauss Rifle, rolled 10, hit, deals 15 damage to the left arm. 12 points of armor left

Left torso 4 medium pulse lasers

Medium Pulse Laser, 11 Hit, deals 6 damage to left arm leaving 6 points left for the PPC arm.
Medium Pulse Laser, 10 Hit, deals 6 damage to left leg leaving 25 armor left
Medium Pulse Laser, 7 Hit, deals 6 damage to Center Torso leaving 34 points of armor left.

She swings the sword and slams her barrel fist at it. Mech is borderline Overheating, TSM is activate making her melee hits x2

Right Arm Sword, 7 Hit, rolled 2 for a Crit hit chance with a 9 indicating Right torso, deals 18 dmg leaving 10 points of armor

Left Barrel fist, 7 hits, deals 16 points of damage to the left torso leaving 12 points of armor left.

The Quickdraw staggered at the withering fire that raked it's armor. His allies just behind saw what seemed to be lasers boring through the back of the torso before the entire side seemed to slough off, pieces of red hot jagged metal and torn myomers the only thing that remained of the battlemechs left side.

There was a moments pause, before the battlemaster fired another snapshot, this time focused on the enemy crab. The PPC went wide, lighting the dim street in blue light, and one could almost feel the Battlemasters frustration as he fired every other weapon, it's medium lasers and machine guns reaching out to touch the crab. All but two of the lasers missed, the beams directly hitting the mechs right leg and arm to minimal effect as steam began to rise from the battlemasters armor, the rain instantly turning into steam on contact with the 'mechs smoldering armor.

The rest of the lance swivelled and focus fired on the Frydman, lasers and various kinetic and missile rounds exploding all around the mech.

WVE-6N===2 SMALL LASERS HIT ROUGHNECK. 1 HIT LEFT TORSO AND 1 HIT RIGHT ARM FOR THREE DAMAGE 3 SRMS HIT ROUGHNECK. 1 HIT LEFT ARM 1 HIT RIGHT TORSO AND 1 HIT CENTER TORSO FOR 2 PER MISSILE

QKD-4G===3 MEDIUM LASERS HIT ROUGHNECK. 1 HIT HEAD 1 HIT LEFT ARM 1 HIT RIGHT TORSO FOR 5 DAMAGE

Just as this deluge of fire came to an end the second lance came charging as fast as their stubby little urbanmechs could, heavy cannons firing from a distance and soaring just over the Battlemaster. By now the Taskforce was in less disarray, and the 2nd Lance knew exactly who to fire upon. This target was the Crab.

HBK-5M===AC20 HITS CRAB. LEFT ARM. 20 DAMAGE. 1 MEDIUM LASER HITS CRAB. LEFT ARM. 5 DAMAGE.

URM-R60===AC10 HITS CRAB. RIGHT TORSO. 10 DAMAGE

A DISGUSTINGLY GREEN URM-R60L====AC20 HITS CRAB. HEAD. 20 DAMAGE.

Ingrid clutched the controls, in moments they had opened fire and initiated combat. Her heart sank as the majority of her shots missed, though the medium laser cutting into the Assassin sending it to the ground almost felt like a conflict of interest amidst her self criticism but no sooner as she could accept the minor victory, the Quickdraw was already moving upon Jaida and herself... this is moving too fast... not a moment to gather her thoughts... 'I... no, take action there's no time to think.'

Ingrid was suprised by the Crab's rapid follow up volley towards the Quickdraw reminded her not to get caught up in the moment and to keep firing... keep pressing the trigger.

Coming to a hault, the BJ-1 adjusted it's torso to the Quickdraw and opened up in succession:

With the Combined Laser firepower from both the Crab and the Blackjack, they cut the left leg off of the Assassin causing it to fall over forward. The heat on her mech was evened out in the neutral zone and the system dispensed it with it’s cooling systems of the Double heatsinks back down to 0. Having the BlackJack as pretty much her support was nice to have, but since she was a green ranked pilot and it was showing, it more or less felt like she was actually babysitting Ingrid. On her radar, she saw the advancing of the QuickDraw coming for the two Mediums. Lifting up her controls a bit, raising the reticle of her weapons, Jaida turned on her spotlight illuminating the QuickDraw and she began firing her lasers and was swapping through her firing groups at the lumbering Heavy Mech.

The Battlemaster and Wyvern opened fire on the Fyrdman as Cortes danced with the urban combat mech. Medium Lasers scorched some armor off the mech's arms, and the quickdraw started moving up, but Cortes focused his fire on the Wyvern, trying to do his best to cripple or destroy it to reduce the numbers facing the Lance. The fearsome rotary cannon barked, sending a shell slamming into its right torso (5 dmg) and another shell smashing into a building nearby. The two forearm heavy machine guns opened up, a scattering of shots stripping armor off the machine's right arm (3 dmg), and the head mounted ER small laser scored the machine's left side. (3dmg). The Fyrdman continued to strafe around the enemy formation's left flank as Cortes checked his ammo reserves to see he had plenty of ammo left to spare.

The lance had steadily advanced through the dim city streets, spread across the roadway, two mechs on each side. The Assassin was farther forwards than the others, immediately followed by the Wyvern, in a sort of staggered formation.

ROE had been clear: Do not fire unless fired upon. The plan hinged on wasting no time in getting to the Spaceport, and any combat had to be disnegaged from as fast as possible. This was why, despite having picked up the 'mech signatures down the road, they had not decided to fire pre-emptively. In the chaos, an organized lance could be easily mistaken for a unit of peacekeeping forces. This idea didn't hold up much when the actual peacekeeping forces were out and about.

The Assassin went down in a flash of laser fire, it's armor glowing orange as it's leg was blown off in the first valley. Just behind it, the Wyvern took a withering amount of fire from the Roughneck, it's pilot immediately firing off it's lasers, only a single medium scoring a grazing hit on the semi-distant target. The Battlemaster also opened up on the Heavy mech, it's PPC firing in a desperate snap shot that shot down the avenue and right past the group of 'mechs. It's lighter arnaments, a cluster of mediums, shot out, only two of the lasers hitting on both his arms.

The Quickdraw, the 'mech bringing up the rear, charged forwards, hoping to take the brunt of the enemy fire and closing the range between the two lances.

Radars indicated the second lance will arrive in moments.

Watching her screen as the mech registrations came forth. Gripping her controls a bit hard, she focused herself for the engagement that will ensure follow. Orders from the Roughneck came in to everyone. When she was told that she was to be teamed up with the Blackjack to take down the Assassin, she sighed to herself. “Aff, Seyla moving to engage. Let’s go...Ingrid. We got a 40 tonner to wipe clean.” With her helmet on and her mind linked with the Crab, it lurched forward with it’s pincer’s opened. Going down different streets, she eventually came into position that she was now charging the 2 by 2 formation Lance, and her targeting reticle locked. Pulling the trigger’s, her laser’s began firing.

With no reply from Bedlam and Ingrid starting to worry about the enemy contacts, Cortes grit his teeth and advanced upon the newcomers. His IS Targeting Computer helpfully IDed the enemies: An armored Battlemaster, a downgraded Wyvern, an unknown make of Assassin, and a standard Quickdraw. A lance they were out weighed by a good 35 tons. Not ideal, but that was just his life it seemed.
"Enemy Battlemechs. 1 Assault, 1 Heavy, 2 Mediums." He told Ingrid and the ad-hoc lance he was with in general. "Bedlam, harass that Assault. Ingrid, Seyla, pop that Assassin, then team up with Bedlam on the Battlemaster. I'm scraping that Wyvern, then moving on to the Quickdraw."
Having given the orders, Cortes moved to engage. Advancing towards his target, he let rip with all his available weapons: 2x Heavy Machine Guns, ER Small Laser, and of course the RAC/5 that was his mech's primary weapon. Targeting the enemy weapon systems, he peppered the Wyvern with rounds, hoping for a quick kill.
The Rotary gun ripped more than two thirds the armor off the right torso of the enemy machine, the Machine guns taking half the left armor, and the laser only shaving off 1/6th of the center. Cortes cursed quietly and wished he had time to load his LRMs. A good burst would have really helped right now.
