I'm a little late, but whatever we do this until 1 at night anyway.

You are Commander David Lister (ZC, KCoZ) ace pilot and CO of the elite independant corps the Nachtmaren Unit. You've spent the war kicking ass, taking down Gundams and testing out all maner of prototypes but now it's crunch time: Operation Odessa.

A massive attack, led personally by General Revil, comprised of everything from Mobile Suits to infantry, on your primary source of resources, the Odessa mining facility.

After an attempt to make a good first impression via an airdrop night raid on an a enemy Artillery unit turned hilarious when the Gundam appeared out of nowhere, you arrived to Odessa and were given special orders.

Take out Revil.
And not in the flowers and movie kind of way.

In order to track the wily General down, you sent out your Wappa Dragoons out on a recon mission and reinforced the fatigued troops holding out at the defence lines. It's mid evening when you hear from them again...

It's around 6pm. After the excitement of midday, the enemy hasn't really come as close as they did to breaching the lines as that first attack. Plus the reinforcments from the Jaburo attack forces finally appeared on the scene to maintain defence.

Then

>Around about 6pm. Just as the defence teams are about to rotate again, you receive a call from the Outer Heaven.

>"We've just received word from the Evac Fat Uncle, it's just gotten word from the Dragoons that they need an emergency retrieval from the area of Nove Village. The Fat Uncle has already lifted off.

You do indeed have communications link to the Fat Uncle, and are fully loaded. You all load up back on the Outer Heaven and move to support the Transport as it makes it's way NorthEast, into enemy territory.

Meanwhile Anita raises the local command structure asking for Fighter Support. She reports back the following.

The Zaku Kai is probably going to stay in our roster until the end of the war. It's an amazingly efficient design that can hold an absurd amount of kit. Seriously, Bernie went into Odessa decked out like a Kampfer-lite.

You send the fighters on when they catch up with you. They reach the combat zone about 5 minutes before you do.
Using the laser-comm network they report back to you:

"Were counting about 8 Attack Helicopters attacking our boys, they're under heavy attack and appear pinned down in two locations, we're moving in to assist."

Three minutes later you get an update.

"We've sighted enemy fighters, we're moving off to engage, the Dopps will continue to engage the enemy Helicopters."

You arrive on the scene to see the following.
Tanks visibly heading down the road towards Kurchurhan.
About 3 Helicopters remianing, currently under attacks from Dopps.

As you dart forwards, the disrupted tanks begin to fire at you, but you easily dodge their uncoordinated fire. As you open up with a burst from your beam Carbine, the shots from Zolomon beam guns on his shield, as well as fire from Elaine and Bernard catch the enemy forces in a crossfire.
Explosions and chaos follow. The survivors try to retreat across the bridge you harrass them lightly as they go before giving the call to Jolyne to take out the bridge supports.
Two yellow shots lance through the concrete legs of the bridge, building materials shatter, metal twists and breaks and the bridge warps and bends before collapsing. Destroying the rest of the enemy forces.
The river get's shallower down river, and any survivors of this should make it out alive.

The enemy Helicopters are retreating, and it looks like the air units are disengaging also. With a bit of luck this might be mission accomplished for your Wappa teams.

Aside from Revil there's fair few other attacks of oppourtunity here.
There's also a time element as well, whilst they can't be sure if Revils been spotted, they can't discount it either, it's highly likely he'll try to redeploy unless we move quickly.

The Saber Tiger and Dopp squadrons report that the enemy has disengaged, and whilst the Saber Tiger sqaudron is down to 3 planes, the Dopp Wing remains at full strength.

A quick check with GHQ reveals that several currently refueling and rearming fighter wings have been allocated to your mission, but none have launched as of yet, and will take about 10 to 30 mins to arrive when they (it varies depending on where they launch from)

YOUR ORDERS?

>>11754931
Neutralising enemy air cover seems like a fairly smart thing to do. We should get our asses over to the makeshift airfield, blow it up, then stop Revil.

Even the Nachtmaren aren't good enough to stand up to a whole massed formation of enemy troops, so stay the fuck away from them.

The infantry staging area is a bit far away from our objective, we'd get surrounded or pinned down and then killed.

So I'd say, come down hard on the Airfield, then go squish Revil.

If we go east around the front line, we run the chance of running into that Trojan Horse. If we go west, there's the infantry and tank staging area. Straight through means penetrating the Feddie lines and possibly getting our line of retreat cut off.

Besides the air power that has be allocated to us, do we have any artillery and ground attack reinforcements for this operation?

Oh wait. I've got an old anti-Assault carrier plan somewhere. If we're going to be droping straight into the thick of it heading back and switching Hovis into the spare Dowdage might be a good idea. Or we could hold him back and drop him after the Assault Carrier is dead.

Everyone carries more gear than usual in this plan specifically heat weapons since we're going to be disposing of them. Team HANO drops onto Assault Carrier.

David & Calvin try to land on top of the launch bays targeting them and it's the main guns.
Elaine & Jolyne try to land on top of the Engine blocks, each should carry a spare Dom heat rod and stab it into the engine block leaving them there before moving on and dishing out damage with their beam weapons.
Zol & Bernie should target the center of the ship. Stick heat hawks into important looking places and step on them.
Hopefully something in there will deal critical damage.

Further on the way checks with GHQ reveal the following.

2 Hildolfr Artillry teams (three MT's apiece) are available for firemissions. But in order to get into range they would have to advance forwards slightly somewhere. This will require a moderate escort, and may thin ranks elsewhere.
The bottom line, they can supply artillery support to disrupt the staging area, but they won't be able to do so for long, and may be forced to retreat early.

You order the Outer Heaven and the rest of your units to engage whilst you order your team to go topside and provide firesupport.

As the enemy planes fly towards you, they split apart left and right into two groups to avoid your advancing fire. Your escorts bank to engage whilst the Outer Heaven gently Viffs (so as to not cause you fall off) it's turrets firing at both sides. You, Zolomon and Bernard fire at the starboard attackers whilst the rest fire at the port side.

"Concentrate on taking those Core fighters down! We don't want any beam shots coming our way!" You order as you scan the battle line searching for the brightly coloured opponents.
Within seconds a purple beam grazes the nose of the Outer Heaven, you quickly scan the battle looking for the firer, you spot a Core booster banking away and send a burst of fire at it, it dodges the first but the second and third take it down.

Elaine and Jol get on the OH and start sniping the big guns off the carrier.

Can Calvin get a flying sled thing? If so have him flying around scanning for a good place to drop the Rhino so it can start firing on the White Base. Also he should keep a look out for enemy air assets coming to support their Supreme Commander.

Once that Rhino is deployed the OH can put its full attention to destroying any incoming enemy air assets as well as demolishing the carrier since at this point the Trojan Horse will have spilled out its MS compliment and thus our MS will be tied up with them.

I don't think anyone has said to drop the Artillery platform that is the Rhino inside the town itself. It was my impression they meant to have it work with the OH to bombard the place with heavy beam guns and shelling.

You order the OH to drop of Hovis for fire support when they get a chance.
The rest of you are taking out that Trojan Horse with a ship to ship combat jump before it can get up to your height.

If it works it'll be one for the history books all right.

The lower exit door opens up and you wait for the optimum moment to make the jump. You see great purple beams lance forth from the side mounted beam cannons and the Outer Heaven roll to avoid.

"Go!" You order and your team pile out towards the enemy Carrier.

"Zolomon, you and Bernard concentrate on the Hangar bays, Elaine take out the engines, Bernard, you and me assault the bridge!"

You leap into the red sunset sky, the gradually dwindling light is going to make this assault problematic, you hope nobody misses the target.

It then starts firing at you with it's numerous flak turrets, lighting it up nicely.
You use your thrusters to avoid the enemy attacks, unguided missiles are added to the mix, making things even harder.
Elaine and Jolyne begin firing their beam weapons in response and you see reactive armour plating bloom in yellow energised explosions. It wont stop the beams from penetrating but it will reduce the beams power.
You see the hangar doors begin to open up as it turns to try and avoid you. You gun the thrusters to compensate and your through the flak and land heavily and unsteadily on front deck of the ship. You activate the magnetic soles on your MS to stabilise and you see Zolomon, Elaine and Jolyne manage to make similar landings.

Hoping that Bernie can make a successful landing you bark out orders.
"I want this ship neutralised in 15 seconds or und..." You barely dodge out of the way as the high powered beam shot lances at you from behind, as a blue GM armed with a large rifle leaps out from the open hangar bay.
Zolomon moves to intercept, but suddenly a GM with a beam spear is blocking the way.
Then, sailing over everbody is Bernards Zaku kai, evidently he didn't roll ALL the way off. He bodily tackles the blue sniping GM, and it's beam rifle goes flying as the two suits fall over the side in a clinch.
In an attempt to take advantage of the chaos, you put a 3 shot burst from your carbine into the bridge, the shots hit the trunk causing bright explosions and then smoke to plume from them. There are further explosions from the rear, near the engines, looks like Jolyne and Elaine are getting things done at least.

Zolomon and the GM Striker exchange blows with their beam sabers, the GM leaps back over the gap between hangars and uses the space to draw it's machine pistol to fire a spray of bullets at Zolomon's Gyan Kreiger, he blocks the salvo with his shield and responds with round of grenades fired from his shield.
The GM avoids by dodging on the side, one foot lands on the open hangar door, which gives way under the extra pressure and collapses the Gm falls over the side in suprise .
Zolomon moves to pursue but a bright flash fills your viewscreen, you look to the left as your viewscreens compensate you see a mass production Guncannon falling to the ground.

The carrier itself is listing, billowing smoke and gradually descending to the ground. The flak guns are still firing, but you haven't seen the beam guns fire in a while. It looks like this ship is out of the action for a while.

Can Jol or Elaine tell us if the engines are destroyed/disabled or are the still functional enough to persue?

With the engines destroyed or crippled and its nasty beam guns disabled then the ship is neutered. We should tactically retreat and regroup while pulling any of the enemy MS compliment into the OH's firing lanes. Once the enemy MS are off our backs or left far enough behind we can flush out Revil before the swarms of enemy air assets arrive.

If the engines are still functional we should buy Elaine and Jol a little more time in destroying them before engaging in a tactical retreat.

You leap off the very slowly crashing ship along with the rest of the crew, you can't see Bernie and the enemy GM, but the other enemies have both landed already so you assume they must have.

You spot the muzzle flare of the enemy Guncannon in the failing light, and you return fire before dodging. You see your beams start a fire in the wheat fields, not yet harvested, but fail to hit the target. You switch to IR. Picture is fuzzy since the light hasn't fully gone, but still workable.
You spot a heat and light bloom further over and spot Bernie and Calvin tag teaming the enemy sniper. It's already lost an arm, so you don't think he needs help.

"Commander, I'm on the ground, do you need fire support?" Hovis reports.

You land comfortable and scan the area. You spot the other two enemies retreating east towards a town for cover.

"Sir! The enemy unit is surrendering, what should we do?" Bernard reports.

"Tell him to exit his Mobile Suit and then blow the suit up. He'll be no problem on foot."

"Right"

In the distance you can hear the sound of falling artillery shells coming from the staging area, and the IR sensors pick up a major air battle to the south, possibly the same one you left.

You order Hovis and Calvin to keep those retreating Mobile Suits supressed and from helping your oppoennts.

You push on at best speed, Bernard replacing his 90mm (lost in the fall) with your spare 220mm Bazooka. Even through your IR sensors you quickly spot the retreating Big Tray. Side mounted artillery cannons swivel to face you and begin firing, silent so far in the hopes that you would miss them somehow. Large shells rain from the sky and you dash forwards under their arcs avoiding them with a standard zig zag movement.
Jolyne returns fire with her shoulder mounted beam cannon and quickly manages to silence the guns. You advance now only having to face it's lighter flak guns. Which are shorter ranged and far less dangerous.

You're about 100 meters away from them when it's rear end seems to warp and ripple through the grainy IR viewscreen, it suddenly distorts almost fluidly and splits into four leaping shapes that fly towards you.
You stop and fire a burst from your beam carbine into one of the shapes. The yellow shots lance it, and then the mobile suit underneath casts it off. You see him hurl an IR distorting smoke grenade into the floor, and in the few moments you see the V-Fin of your opponents.

Whilst some heated discussion is still present even 20 years on. It is now becoming an accepted fact that the Federation had less aces and ace teams than Zeon.
Despite this, the Federation still possessed troops and pilots who were clearly a cut above common line soldiery.
One such group was the Midnight Pixie DeathSquad.
That last part of their name seems at least to be a misnomer, even with the most strenous of investigations there are no examples of the unit ever being used as a legitimate deathsquad, and it's likely the unit CO, a one Lt Lloyd Baxter merely used the term for intimidation purposes.
The Pixy part however was much more practical, as the squad was solely put together for use of the RX-78XX Pixy Gundam, an advanced Gundam model that was designed with agility over armour in mind. The Pixy had numerous weaknesses compared to the Gundam, it could not travel in space without serious modification, and it's armour was decidely lighter than it's predeccessor. Furthermore, it's lighter minovsky reactor couldn't power a beam rifle to satisfactory levels along with the Beam Knives, and the Pixy used conventional weaponry as a result. Nevertheless, the unit was a close combat powerhouse, and the MPDS were all experts in close quarters combat.
They acted directly under and answered solely to General Revil, and it's believed they were formed as a mirror to Garma Zabi's now feared independant corps: The Nachtmaren Unit.
The Midnight Pixy Death Squad accounted for no less that 100 mobile suit kills and it's believed that they eventually met their end during...

Char leapt sideways as his wingman took several missiles on his Shield. Now ruined, the MS-14 Gyan discarded it and dashed back into the cover of the apartment block across the road. His attempt to rejoin with Char foiled by the Gundam.

"Those modular Heavy Armour components sure do pack a wallop don't they sir?" The pilot asked of him

"Not as much as those beam cannons. Don't give away your position, these buildings offer no protection against such firepower."

As if to punctuate this point, an ameythist shaft of light tore directly through where the Gyan was the moment Char was finished talking. The suit promptly exploded.

'Damn! That pilot's intuition seems to have gotten even sharper! Is there no end to his apparent potential?" he thought to himself.
Nevertheless he took advantage of the situation and leapt up over the warehouse he was hiding behind. Flipping himself up over the twin-linked beam shot he knew to be coming he fired off a shot at the Gundam whilst inverted with his Gelgoogs beam rifle. As expected he dodged to the right. It would have been a miss had Char even been aiming for him. However he'd deliberately lured the Gundam into that spot, just so he could put a beam round into the storage building to it's right, which he had noticed was storing large amounts of demolitions explosive.

>>11758599
The Gundam must have had an inkling of the danger when Char's shot went apparently wide, but the extra weight of the Full-Armour pack meant that he couldn't avoid the full brunt of the impressive explosion that followed.
The Gundam flew backwards and to the untrained eye it might look like the victory belonged to Char. Char however recognised instantly that the Gundams flight was too controlled, he also notices that it had forcibly ejected the extra armour parts.

"A last second maneouver, you shed your skin to escape in time. I guess your piloting skills are so second rate any more are they Gundam Pilot?"

Besides, plenty of those Gundams were where they were supposed to be. The Blue Destiny was probably supposed to go to Jaburo at some point, Agar had his showdown in the Mudrock with Midnight Fenrir in Jaburo as planned, the Gundam was in Arizona, and it took part in Odessa, and the Pixy was supposed to be tested in Africa, but in Canon it got intecepted by the Wulfgar team, but in this it didn't because the Wulfgar team were killed by Amuro.

I don't really see Zeon winning and gaining such control of the Earthsphere.

We still have the massive manpower and resource problems but now they are intensified due to Zeon splitting in twain.

And even if we do somehow magically beat the Federation into submission, or more likely get them to agree to a truce or ceasefire of some sort with us, we still have to deal with the matter of Gihren's Zeon.
The civil wars only been postponed, not cancelled.

Who says we bother with that?

The Big Tray is down to it's secondaries. Direct the Outer Heaven's superior ranged weapons at the thing and hose it down until there's nothing left. Those Pixies don't have long-range beam weaponry, either. We keep alive, we keep dodging, and we keep pumping as much firepower into that hulk until it turns into a ball of reactor failure while we're doing it.

Or a combined government with the earth sphere assembly moved into space and Garma ruling most of Earth. With the Titans being a joint venture intended to deal with Girhen loyalists... and getting out of control. Was actually thinking of writing something like that a couple of days ago but thought I'd wait to see if Revil lived or died.

How are they holding up anyway? All resources mined on earth end up with Cyllica after all.

Can you just give us an overall summary of the state of Zeon?

You really seem to be obsessed with the OH but it ISN'T that unstoppable, destructive and accurate you know.

So what do you guys think the Galbaldy is going to be like? It's bound to have a lot more United Maintinence Plan parts so hopefully that means it'll be more powerfull than the baseline stats we have on the Galbaldy Beta.

Bravo sir, Bravo.

Oh, I know it isn't. But we've ravaged that Big Tray and stripped it of it's long range weaponry- and it's a fucking huge target.

The mission is to kill or capture Revil. We destroy the Big Tray, we can pull out with a "mission accomplished"- and if he's NOT on the Big Tray, pulling out is still the sensible thing after we wreck it. Killing a bunch of wannabe ninja-Gundams is just icing on the cake, but unless one of them is piloted by Revil, they are NOT the mission. They are an obstacle. Obstacles are either avoided, or neutralized. Either is victory.

We've destroyed a Trojan Horse and punched a nice big hole in the C3 for the Federation forces attacking Odessa.

Tactically, we're already ahead on the deal.

We can also assume that he's still here or in the process of fleeing. Otherwise the Pixies would not have deployed.
