Hey Adeptus, as there are supposed to be a obscene amount of droids where I am, and we can't handle another 50+ in a straight fight, I'll have about, oh, 30 B-1s and 10 SBD's from my battlezone be at yours. I don't know how many more you want, but just tack on however many. Just letting you know that that's how I'll be explaining the lack of droids at the hangar (I'll interrogate a wet), if you don't mind.
Val and the squad reached the other side of the base without further incident.
"Ok, through this door is the second target and the hangar--and likely a huge number of battle droids. Lucky, place a charge. Kad and I will fire an anti-armor round each, while Lucky lobs in some EMP grenades. Ready? Lets do this and go home."
Lucky rapidly placed a charge on the door. "Clear!" The door blew out, and Val and Kad ducked low, miraculously avoiding incoming fire, and fired their rounds. The firing slowed briefly, and then Lucky threw the grenades. Even fifteen meters away, Val's hud still flickered. "Lets GO Gamma!" They burst through the smoke, Deece's at the ready. Val and Lucky went to the right of the door, and Kad and Shadow went left, each finding cover before the wet commanders had time to rally their troops.
Gamma was faced with a formidable force. Twenty-four battle droids, in squads of six led by a wet, were joined by a group of five SBD's and another wet. One of the SBD's was down, and another appeared to have been damaged by shrapnel, and seemed to be moving slower than the rest. One wet was down, and five B-1s. Even as Val took this in, another four went down, three to another anti-armor round, and the fourth getting its head blown off by Shadow's Verp. "Shadow, flank left. Gamma, covering fire! Lucky, flash the wets."
Lucky threw a flash-bang near two wets, they went down to their knees. Kad and Val opened up, and after several seconds Lucky joined them. A clip each and seven battle droids later, they ducked back under cover, and Shadow was nowhere to be seen. "I'll never know how he does that, but I won't complain. Kad, you keep the tinnies busy while Lucky and I work on those SBD's."
"Copy. By the way, is it possible to major in making shrapnel? Cus I'd totally pass."
"Just shoot. And the Grand Army doesn't do degrees."
Lucky weakened the SBD's up with another EMP, and they opened up as one man. The damaged SBD finally went down with the EMP, and Lucky blew the arm and leg off another. Val put half a clip into the chest of another, and it finally went down. The last was destroyed under two seconds of their combined firepower.
The wets and the seven remaining tinnies had managed to keep Kads head down, so Val and Lucky transferred their fire, bringing down two droids and a wet. Kad brought down another, and another's leg seemed to mysteriously fly off. Shadow rose from the darkness, behind the Seps, and immediately followed up by beheading another droids, burying his blade in the chest of another, and firing his Verp point blank into the stomach of one of the wets, who collapsed back. Kad dropped the final wet, and Val finished off the final tinnie.
"Shadow, wait! We want that one alive." Shadow paused, his arm cocked above the neck of the wounded officer, blade drawn. The dying man clutched his stomach, and managed to raise a hold-pistol, but the shot just glanced off a distracted Shadow's armor, and he fell back. Kad lunged forward to disarm him, and Val stepped forward.
"Where are the rest of the droids? A facility this size should have nearly twice this number."
Shadow looked up from inspecting his armor. "And the hangars missing several transport sized berths."
"So where are they?"
The man coughed, spewing up blood. "Far away. Attacking one of your bases, I heard. Somewhere in the mountains."
"Sounds like Commander Maris's." observed Kad.
"Whatever. Whoever it is, they don't stand a chance." he coughed again, and again, spewing up even more blood, before continuing in a weaker voice. "Not...a...chance." He released his last breath, and his eyes closed.
"Osik! We need to tell command, and get a ride out of here. Kad, Lucky, blow the gun emplacement and the hangar. I'll call in the news, and for extraction." They moved off.
"GAR Command, this is Gamma squad. Mission complete, I repeat, mission complete. We need extraction as soon as is possible. We also have information suggesting that a large Separatist force may be prepared to attack Commander Maris's base. Acknowledge."
<Acknowledged Gamma. Commander Maris is currently under attack, and we are sending some units for support, but if we can divert a gunship to evac you, we will."
"Understood. Gamma, out."
