True, without the ability to call in fire support, we would have had to use viking shield walls around tanks to try and endure long enough to whittle them down. However, if one aircraft leaving jamming range was enough, surely the masters of war that are the Zentraedi could account for that? That is, assuming they have strategy behind that mass.Hate to say it, but I see this as just another day in Malcontent life. I don't think they hit the convoy because they didn't know about it. If it were a supply run, they would have nailed it for certain.
Zentraedi often attack in overwhelming force and numbers, whenever possible. This raid is typical. While I wouldn't be completely surprised if there was another target, this smells like just another one of their all-out assaults to me. As for a kamikaze charge, I think it was anything but. (I'm not trying to give credit to my character here - seriously, but...) ask yourself what kind of battle it would have been without the Monster artillery crew and the Dragon aircraft supporting us? I think the Malcontents were counting on us not getting word out. Our outside help took out twenty of those hostile mecha, possibly including 4 Female Power Armor units hiding in the trees (their deadliest mecha).
And, oh yeah, whomever put Anton-17's comm tower out where it was obvious so it could get one-shotted like that needs to leave the Army of the Southern Cross (at the very least). In other words, I'm totally with Alan on that one. =)
I had stopped changing my draft a few days ago, but it was about a couple hours at first then some revisions and new paragraphs for a few following days.
Haha. Ryuko is trying her best. She really doesn't like what she's up against though.Oh, and @Illiyasviel Von Einzbern? If it's not obvious, Gabi is truly concerned about Ryuko's welfare. She's hoping to get a caring response from Ryuko because she's convinced Ryuko's got that caring side. By trying to reach it, Gabi is hoping Ryuko won't make another (admittedly-newbie) mistake like that and get herself hurt. Gabi doesn't doubt Ryuko or her motives at all, and she is quite aware of their differences as women, but that won't stop Gabi from saying whatever she thinks she needs to to help keep Ryuko alive. She doesn't want Ryuko to join her parents anytime soon, and not just for Gabi's sake. =)
EDIT: Oh, and if I'm playing Gabi too strong, let me know? This is my first time playing a latina Special Forces/Mecha Engineer. She's hot-blooded, but she's got a big heart. =)
