OOC & Sign up Day 1 - Week 1 While the majority of the Revolutionary Armada already moved out to secure the city, a portion of the soldiers has been held back in the HQ in case reinforcements to several locations would be needed. These soldiers were now summoned to various hangar bays, where transport aircraft would take them to their zones of operation. Naturally Command would brief them on their way there... Battlezone A (Operation Gibraltar) The two women assigned to this OP, Viole and Ariáne had been assigned to hangar bay 05. In there for them was waiting one of CRA's smaller operational VTOL, a Type 12 Rapid Air Transport. Commonly referred to as the Wasp. The aircraft was warming up its engines as the two entered its small cargo area. Besides them there was nobody else inside. And soon after they could feel the aircraft take off, the comm-link came online. "Good afternoon soldiers, I am the pilot of your aircraft and your Operational Support for this mission. Uh, so I was instructed to brief you on the op." As he spoke the aircraft finally cleared the underground complex and was cruising over the shallow bay east of Rise island. Behind them was the forest covered island of Borealis. However numerous areas have already been cleared to make room for massive anti-orbital weapon capacities. The VTOL slightly turns towards the south as the pilot continues. "You will be conducting a crucial intrusion into Atlantic Corp. territory, this is why for this mission Private Rommily will be in charge. I will be dropping you 2 kilometers into enemy territory, we have identified a crucial flaw in the enemy anti-aircraft defenses. However it is likely this window will be closed after the drop is completed, so aerial support will not be possible until you complete your mission." The plane now suddenly flies over land, numerous piers can be seen below them. "Atlantic Corp. uses AI navigated SAM systems controlled by a central vehicle located somewhere within the 1km radius of their orbital elevator. This system has prevented us from utilizing our aerial supremacy and breaking through their defensive lines. Your mission is to locate the central vehicle and neutralize, or even capture it. For this you will be specially issued a Type 04 Rifle, you may find it in the weapon locker along with your chosen equipment." The VTOL slows down as it moves through the high skyscrapers of central Rise. "Any questions?" Battlezone C (Operation Liberty) Unlike the two, Riktor , Jamal and Varo were brought to the much larger Launch bay 03, this area was once occupied by space ships of the CRA, however now it is filled with massive Type 01 Heavy Air Transports. These massive vessels are operated by 4 turbines and 6 hover-type engines. Their hull is also protected by several autocannon turrets. The entire area was filled with Army and Marine personnel being loaded on similar vessels. Rather then being loaded directly into the crafts, the three are loaded into a Type 1 Armored Carrier. Inside were their chosen weapons waiting, along with all other equipment. The APC regularly carried ammunition for these weapons, along with additional grenades. Once they got settled and the APC loaded, the briefing, obviously not aimed directly at them started. "Good afternoon soldiers, this is General Lester of the CRA Ground Army. I have been assigned to lead this operation. As you know, the old government remains loyal to Earth and refuses to stand down. They have mobilized the CSDF to secure the capital. However don't be fooled, most of the CSDF has already defected to our side, what remains is merely hired guns, mercenaries working for money." A slight bump could be felt as the massive aircraft started to take off. "Your mission today is to land north of the Planetary Council, break through the enemy defensive line and reinforce our forces still holding it. Inside the Planetary Council are all councilmen loyal to us along with one of the starters of the revolution, Jenna Nicosis. There is no doubt they will be executed should their defenses fail. That is all, localized briefings will begin shortly, good luck." With the global briefing over, the soldiers had a bit of time to wait until the aircraft moved into position and the localized briefings began.
