Title: Unit 52 [RP Thread]
Post by: Narric on February 15, 2014, 10:09:09 pm
++++++ Unit 52 Barracks and Sector HQ Roof ++++++
+++ Time: 47 minutes to sunset +++
+++ Destination: Sector 52 North Boarder District +++
+++ Mission Designation: Purge the Heretics +++

The wind whipped past the squad as they climbed onto the roof of the Sector 52 Unit building. Sergeant Ren was at the front, heading directly for the Corvus Assault Carrier, the crew of which was finishing their final checks for flight. He stood to one side of the rear access hatch as the squad climbed in and buckled up.

Trailing slightly at the back was Officer Jeff. A young face, or as some higher ups said "Fresh meat for the grinder."
"Step lively now Officer" Ren barked. Jeff hustled into the carrier, and quickly seated himself. Sergeant Ren stepped in last, and activated a communications panel as he closed the hatch. "All Officers embarked, we are go for flight."

The Carrier lurch upwards as the thrusters were brought to full power. The engines roared, and the seating shook violently. After 10 minutes of flight and silence, Sergeant Ren began the breifng.
"We're heading to the boarder districts of Sector 52. One of our informants has gone silent, but before that they gave us a time and location of a heretic group, who will be meeting this evening. We now they're lightly armed, but they will have numbers against us, so ensure your shots will do some damage." Ren paused. "No heretic is to leave the location alive, but we are going to want to see if they're part of a larger group, so keep an eye out for any evidence that can lead us to a bigger target."

Reaching up, Ren activated a holographic projector. Green wireframe constructs appeared before the squad, showing the location.
"There is only one point of access to the location. The front door. No windows, no ventilation, no backdoors. We're going in gunning, and sorting out the mess afterwards." Ren paused again, jesturing within the projection. "The main room is an octogon, with two rooms on the opposite side to the main door. It been setup as a church of sorts, so use the benches as cover." Ren de-activated the projector.

"Right here's the plan."

"Knight will bust down the doors and attempt to suppress any hostiles. Jax and Wolf, you'll move in next and take cover behind the benches; Jax to the left and Wolf to the right. While you're providing covering fire Jeff, Ace and myself will advance from bench to bench down the aisle to flush them out of any cover. King, you're on overwatch. Stay at the door and take out any enemies that are stupid enough to leave themselves exposed. Keep an eye on those far doors."

"Once the main room is clear, Jeff and Wolf can take up defensive positions kill anyone that comes through one door while the rest of us deal with the other room. Rinse and repeat. Questions?"

"Easy enough."

King went over the final checks on his weapon. He may be a bit of a loose cannon, but he wasn't stupid.

"I suggest making as big an entrance as possible and quickly as possible though, it will shock them for a few seconds, making our job easier."

Jeff looked up from re-checking his weapon (again) and hesitantly raised his voice.

"Er, sir, is there a possibility of our informant being in the target area and if so, do we have a ... code or something to recognise them?"

Sergeant Ren reached forward to reactivate the holo-projector. The machine was already warm, so the location model booted up quickly.

"You raise a good point Jeff." Ren started. "Protocol dictates we assume the Informant was discovered and killed. In the event they're not discovered before we our arrival, they're also trained to be convincing in a fight, but not lethal to us. Either they'll be firing wildly to induce panic, or more likely they're dead."

"I suggest a breaching charge and flash grenades here and here."

King pointed out two points on the map that would be the best targets.

"Of course, if nobody has any of those, shotguns against the door at close range. Or I could do it."

"An excellent suggestion King, with just two minor drawbacks: one, we don't have breaching charges and two, we don't have flashbangs. I really wish the higher ups would give us full kit some day. I was thinking that Knight could shotgun the lock and then just kick the damn thing open."

Knight grinned, chuckling in a low, gruff tone and stepping to the door. Raising his shotgun to point at the lock, he paused and looked up at Ren, gesturing with his free arm and waiting for a nod of authorization to go.

++++++ Sector 52 North Boarder District ++++++
+++ Time: 3 minutes to sunset +++

The Corvus lurched from the winds billowing around the sector Boarder gap. Two miles seperated each sctor with a 50 mile drop. Only pipes and a few enclosed bridges crossing the void-like gap. The carrier lurched as it set down on the roof of the adjacent building. a narrow balcony like walkway ran down the side of the building, and towards the "Church."

The Squad disembarked the transport, and began down towards the church with weapons ready. They quickly ordered themselves according to Ren's plan. As positioned themselves outside, they could hear a sermon in progress..

"Children, tonight is the night ruin shall begin!" An authoritive voice boomed from within. Wofl quickly activated a recorder in his gear to capture the "Sermon" as evidence. The Government has nought but deaf ears to those that suffer, and their reign has lasted long enough. Tonight, we and our brethran shall claim this world in the name of the true lord of all! May his blessings reach you all!...."

The sermon continued, sounding like mad gibberish as the Leader spoke of fur and tails and the pestilence that they would bring. Knight positioned himself in the middle of the double doors. Raising from his crouched position, he lifted his foot up and kicked sharply at the lock of the door.

"Lets do this!" Knight yelled, the old wood splintering easily.

At the Altar a Man stood tall, staring directly at the door. In front of him stood or crouched a handfull of men and woman. They were staring at the Leader, but soon started turning around, an revealing advanced Pulse Rifles.....

"Oh Shit!" Knight Whispered to himself, jumping for cover behind a Pew.

So, this was it. Not even live-fire exercises against drones had ever quite mimicked the emotions Bibby had, mainly to do with not letting his team down. Mentally, he reviewed everything Instructor Riaz had told him about a Hostile Entry. Suddenly the door was kicked in and the stacks moved up. Unconsciously, partly for reassurance, Jeff flicked his thumb upward, making sure his shotgun's safety was off. Now all he needed was confirmation that the cover teams were in place and it was time to move in and go loud.

Wolf swore as he spotted the pulse rifles. Just what they need.

There was a high pitched whine in the background as Kings Heat Rifle powered up. He put his back up against the wall and took aim around the door frame.

"Guys! This is King, hit the deck!"

He spoke loudly into the comms system connecting him to the other team members.

As he saw them start to drop he held down the trigger on his rifle and swept the beam across the armed heretics. It wouldn't definitely kill then, but they would either get down too, or take severe burn which would slow them down.

That sounded like an unofficial go code to officer Bibby. Rounding King, he dashed in at the crouch, away from the direction of sweep and darted for cover, his gun trained on the perps.

Ace, as usual, was assigned to fight up- close. But there wasn't much for him to do just yet, and he wasn't the surest shoot out there. He sat tight, looking around for anyone trying to surprise then as they  began their assault.

Knight barrelled down the middle of the chapel, making a b-line for the Heretic Leader in front of him. Bringing his shotgun up to his side, he let lose. With some luck, he managed to strike the Leader a couple times, but He quickly shrugged off the shots, and brought his own up to level, pulling the trigger. Unfortunately, a few Heretics had stood by the leaders' side, and were joing the barrage. The force of the firepower shocked Knight, staggering him, though not fully stopping him.

Jax and Wolf were quickly in and behind cover, popping up and shooting the Heretics that hadn't huddled around their leader. In their panic, the heretics couldn't choose a target between them, so fired randomly. Jax was lucky, ducking behind cover without issue. Wolf wasn't so lucky, a few stray shots slamming into his combat uniform. He would be bruised tomorrow. Covering from different sides of the room, Jax following through with his luck, taking out three of the Heretics with ease, and moving onto his next target. Wolf hit and wounded severaly of the Heretics, making them cower behind the pews on their side of the room. As one got up and started running to one of the back rooms, Wolf took and struck a clean headshot.

Sergeant Ren had ran behind the pews on the left, but he didn't get into cover fast enough. Pulse Rifle charges slammed into his side, knocking him over and to the ground. going into a combat crawl to get closer behind the pew in front of him, Ren caught his breath. Jeff followed the motions he still fresh in mind training had hardwired into him. None of the enemy seemeed to realize he was there. Popping up from cover, he took am and let rip. He struck a pair that had beentoo focused on Knight. The closest took the brunt of the fire and collapsed in a heep, the second felt the burning metal slamm into their side, and fell to his knees. Ace followed closely behind, however the heretics manged to spot him. Several shots ripped through his armour, shocking him to his knee. Catching his breath, he place hs shotgun sideways on top of the pew and fired blind, going from memory what positions the heretics had taken. Luckily, his shooting found the target, hammering into a heretic just to Knights side. After catching his breath, Ren found the end of the pew and crawled around. Once a row in front, he knealt up from cover and fired into the heretics. In his pain, his shooting wasn't greatly effective, though certainly cuased the rabble to jump behind cover themselves.

Walking with purpose through the door, King raised up the FH-Rifle, flicking the activation switches in perfect sequence. in a long arc, King sweaped acros the room, stopping breifly to account for Knight charging like a mad man down the middle of the room. All the heretics dived for cover. Two were glanced by the burning beam of energy, and fell to the flour screaming in pain. As King finished his sweep, a third knealt up from his cover to try and pot-shot the Hellfire Officer, and instead took the high energy beam directly to the face. His agonised screams lasted breifly, but he kept his finger on the trigger long enough for shots to fired at King. the Pulse shots punched into King left arm, and winded him slightly, but he stood firm and prepared for his next action.

Taking cover (http://invisiblecastle.com/roller/view/4412622/)

Saracen checked his wounds; they didn't seem too horrific, but bloody hell did they hurt. As he took a few moment to catch his breath, he felt the sudden urge to move. He instantly ducked to one side, just as a stray pulse round tore through the bench where his left arm had been a split second earlier. Ignoring his narrow escape, he psyched himself up for his next shots.

Taking cover and with good sight lines, King prepared to open up on the leader and his gang.

"Don't kill the leader," he spoke into the comm bead. "He may have info. Will try to disarm and cripple him. The others are free game."

He brought the Hellfire rifle up and the air sizzled. . .

Wild didn't even bother checking his armour, he'd seen enough people do it and get killed, plus it want the first time armour had stopped rounds that would of killed him otherwise. He would be careful about trying to keep in cover though, didn't need another shot hitting the already compromised armour. He carefully checked where the cultists were before trying to flank the ones closest to him.

The grunts and gasps from both his wounded teammates and hostiles were what surprised Jeff the most. They sounded so ... real. Visceral. The academy always did it's best to simulate reality in every exercise it put the recruits through, but the voices of 'hits' had always sounded a bit... pre-recorded, or like digitally altered intercepts of their actual voices. Which, to be fair, they were - perhaps that had always kept him subconsciously a step removed from truly accepting them.

The true purpose of those drills and scenarios had become very real though. The sudden violence was no surprise, indeed most of his actions were driven by muscle memory rather than conscious decision. Directing another shot toward his second perp, Jeff ducked back into cover before shifting position to the side a few metres to hopefully throw off any blind return fire.

Sergeant Ren stayed behind cover a few moments to colect himself, flexing his muscles quickly to make sure he could leave cover and get back down before the enemy had time to pin him down. He shifted over again, to avoid more Pulse rounds punching into his back. Bringing himself to a kneeling stance behind cover, he picked his shots. He thought he hadn't hit anything, but a heretic dived down yelping in pain.

Knight Continued to tank his way to the atlar, barreling over a couple of heretics. He finished his Shotguns ammo clip into the Leader, but his shooting barely tocuhed the Leader. the Leader in response brought his own rifle up, trying again to rop the massive man. Knights thick skin saved him a great deal of pain, but the Leader brought out a shimering Energy Blade, swinging it in front of where Knights head could have been. Not enough time to swap weapons, Knight lifted his gun up efencively, glancing the Energy blade to the side, leaving red hot patches of metal on the gun casing. At his first chance, Knight slammed the butt of the shotgun into the LEaders arm, forcing him to drop his pulse rifle. Another perfectly timed strick landed in the leaders gut, winding him. The leader staggered back, but regained composure and continued his onslaught against Knight.

King readied himself behind cover, checking his FHR had not gone ideal, he leaned out to target the leader. To his disamay, it seemed Knight was grappling with the Heretic. King returned to cover and shifted so stray shots wouldn't glance him. Checking the FHR again, it had gone idle and was begining to build up excess energy. A quick knock of the release valve, and it was ready to fire again. Peeking aroung cover, King tried to fire at the Leader, but still there was no clean shot.

Wolf swiftly rolled out of cover to the right, firing off a few times before combat rolling into the row in front of his previous position. Kneeling upo again for another round of shooting, several shots clipped his shoulder armour, one narrowly striking his helmet, leaving a gapping hole from in front of his right eye to the side next to his ear, his skin seemed to sizzle as the energy passed close by. His HUD nonfunctional, he had to resort to non-augmented shooting, which felt oddly more natural to him. Taking a chance, he kneeled up again, and fired off a few more rounds. A heretic screamed as he feel.

Jeff continued to shadow the enemy, managing to get the the front-most pew and was shooting from the side of the room. Half of his shooting punching into heretic boies, whilst others managed to send wooden and plaster shraple into the room, disorientating the heretics, leading them to fall to his Units shooting.

Ace was also managing to avoid enemy fire, but couldn't make use of the shraple shower Jeff was creating. His shots missed their marks, but one unfortunate Heretic did fall. Jax took a few hits, but managed to get into cover before ending a few more heretics.
