Thankfully, it would only be a few more minutes until it got dark, so you'd no longer have to worry about the sun, just the absolute darkness. You check your weapon status, which shows your regular missiles, XLAA, and standoff dispenser munitions were all in the green. You were a bit wary using these new weapons, since you had never tested them before. Somehow, Quint's assurances that they would work and including a "lifetime warranty" free of charge did nothing to encourage you. Taking the rear position in your formation, you get a good look at your wingmates' loadouts. As usual, Lara was running a completely air to air focused loadout, concentrating on AA missiles. Lilian seemed to be carrying precision AGMs, which was fitting for her principled flying and attention to detail. Amy's Super Hornet, on the other hand, was toting large, bulky fuel air explosive bombs. Always the indiscriminate bomber, she was.>Lookin' good from down here, Amy!>Aren't those things a little... overkill?>Other
>>41879262>>Lookin' good from down here, Amy!Let's get this thing started!
>>41879262>>Lookin' good from down here, Amy!No such thing as overkill.
>>41879262>Aren't those things a little... overkill? >Other: So Lilian, how many rounds did you and Shiba had sex?
>>41879262>Lookin' good from down here, Amy!HELL YEAH, TIME FOR FREEDOM BABY
>>41879262>Aren't those things a little... overkill?Well even if we do object its a little late to re-arm.
>>41879262>Lookin' good from down here, Amy!Live from /tg/, it's FRIDAY NIGHT.This week, nothing new in ACII actually don't have much else to put, so have a little planelewd from /k/I really hope this is ok
>>41879262>Aren't those things a little... overkill?
>>41879262>Lookin' good from down here, Amy!
>>41879413Such degeneracy, and ganging up on a poor attacker to boot!
>>41879262>Aren't those things a little... overkill?Why do I have the feeling that using those is going to be bad?This seems kind of like using white phosphorous in spec ops the line.
>>41879480Do you feel like an ace yet?
>>41879262>>Lookin' good from down here, Amy!
>>41879413/k/ was behind this, weren't they?
>>41879262Wait, Lillian is here now? Dammit, No sneaking mission for those tapes.

>>41879509Burning Terrorists with FAEs?Fuck yeah I feel like an ace!
>>41879538Of course it was /k/Who else could be so magical?
>>41879561we could still get some info out by asking how many times they did it. The degree of fluster Lilian shows will tell.
>>41879561>>41879593"Hey Angel?""Yes, Valk?""Do you use my little gift back then?""Wh-wh-NO I'M NOT USING THAT!""Oh, so he like it raw?""AAAAAAAAARRGHHHH"
Wild Cards report to the flight line.
>>41879262"Heh, looking good from down here, Amy!" You say teasingly. "Carrying a bigger load than usual!""Ha ha, why don't you keep an eye on your radar rather than my bird's ass?" Amy retorts. "Those bastards wrecked by poor Hog, so a little payback is in order!""Hey, I'm all for purging OB with fire." You say in agreement. "No protest from me.""I still think FAEs are rather... crude weapons." Lilian says disapprovingly. "They make no distinction between friend and foe and are completely indiscriminate.""Oh I'm definitely gonna indiscriminate them!" Amy chuckles diabolically. Sometimes you wonder if that girl's got issues, and then you remember the line of work you're involved in. "Honestly..." Lilian sighs.>Ask Lilian how her "private time" with Shiba went.>Just stay quiet for now.>Other
>>41879653>>Ask Lilian how her "private time" with Shiba went.
>>41879653>Just stay quiet for now.let's not trip the death flag alarm, not before a mission. it's bad luck. We can do that after the mission's over.
>>41879653>Ask Lilian how her "private time" with Shiba went.
>>41879653>>Ask Lilian how her "private time" with Shiba went.>If she doesn't say anything lie about us having the tapes and judge by her reaction.
>>41879653>>Ask Lilian how her "private time" with Shiba went.>>OtherSlip to the other girls exactly what we passed to her in the cell~
>>41879653>Just stay quiet for now.We can ask this when we are going home after the mission, with dosh rewards for wiping OB chucklefucks.
>>41879653>>Ask Lilian how her "private time" with Shiba went.This is literally the only option.>>"Oh I'm definitely gonna indiscriminate them!" Amy chuckles diabolically. That's encouraging.
>>41879685>let's not trip the death flag alarm, not before a mission.B-but mocking and dancing above death flag trip is /tg/ honorable tradition!
>>41879653>>41879653>>Ask Lilian how her "private time" with Shiba went.Time to talk about BOYS!!!!
>>41879766>Karla status when talking about Jaeger: stoic (internally flustered) >Lara status when talking about Wolf: Visibly flustered with Tsundere attitude.>Amy status when talking about boys in general: Very flustered.>Lilian status when talking about how many times she and Shiba had sex: MAXIMUM OVERFLUSTERED
>>41879653>>41879704We're going for them eventually so this.
Looks like 4chan is experiencing some 'hiccups'....
>>41879653"So, Angel." You say, changing the subject. "How did your 'private time' with Shiba go?""W-w-w-what?!" Lilian stammers."Private time?" Lara asked, a bit confused."Ohohoho, this I gotta hear!" Amy chuckles."Oh, come on, when I left, I saw you and Shiba getting pretty intimate!" You tease. It wasn't totally true, but it's not like Lara and Amy would know any better. "Did you use my little present?""O-of course not!" Lilian says denial. You can almost picture her cockpit heating up from the embarrassment. "Why would I use something like that?!""Oh? So he likes it raw then? You pretty daring, Angel!" You laugh. "What if he shoots his cannon inside?""Hahaah, holy shit!" Amy laughs."Wait, can someone explain what's going on?" Lara asks, utterly confused.Lilian, meanwhile, doesn't respond so much in words rather than a nonverbal choking sound over the radio.>Okay, you had your fun.>PRESS THE ATTACK>Other
>>41879943>>PRESS THE ATTACK
>>41879943>>Okay, you had your fun.

>>41879943>Okay, you had your fun.Gotta get our head back in the game.
>>41879943>>Okay, you had your fun.Well, we better stop before Lilian decided she can do this mission without us and shot us down.
>>41879943>>>Okay, you had your fun.
>>41879943>Okay, you had your fun.Let's NOT rile up the wingmate before the mission.
>>41879943>>PRESS THE ATTACKBelkan assaults only intensify.
>>41879943>Okay, you had your fun.
Also holy shite, Lara is really green on this kind of thing, isn't she?
>>41879943>>PRESS THE ATTACKPoor Lilian, but it needs to be done.
>>41879943>Explain the birds and the bees (or the pilot edition, The planes and the pilots) to Lara."Lara, when two pilots love each other very much..."
>>41880054>Karla tells Lara about the ROD OF STEEL

>>41880184Ah, acceptable opinion.Keep an eye out on the preview at the end though, you might catch a familiar face.
>>41880129>Air Superiority Morgan "EXCALIBUR": Laser turrets EVERYWHERE>Ground Attack Morgan "ARONDIGHT": Either a huge Railgun/cannon mounted on top or underneath and Missiles that shoot mini-missiles.>Electronic Warfare Morgan "CALIBURN": ECM/ESM with drones armed with missiles or mirrors for the lasers. Can also shield allied craft by staying by the 6 o'clock.>Multirole Morgan: Essentially Karla's 02.

>>41880238>you might catch a familiar face....well that sounds interesting.Gonna check it after went home much later.
>>41880318We won't ever see them, because in order to develop the Falken Grunder recovered Pixy's Morgan and developed the Falken from it.
>>41880318>...hey, we haven't see Falken yet, right? Hope we don't meet one as enemy....YOU DID ITYOU TEMPTED FATEGREAT JOB ANON
>>41879943>PRESS THE ATTACK
>>41880318>>41880443Now I'm waiting for Merc to post that fucking cat.
>>41880443We need some proper enemy once Buddyplane online tho.>>41880435Merc will find a way to get around that if he really want to introduce Falken.
>>41880435They recovered the black box, not the wreck, buddy
>>41879943You briefly consider continuing to tease Lilian, but then reconsider. You think she's been the victim of enough abuse, plus you didn't want her getting too flustered right before a mission. "Ah, I'm just messing with you, Angel. You don't have to tell me anything." You laugh. "Dang, I wanted to hear details." Amy grumbles."Now now, Amy, you can learn the intricacies of romance from better sources." You chide."Bah.""Um, so... what just happened?" Lara asks, confused."We'll explain it to you when you're older, Stripes." You laugh. "You girls talk about the weirdest things, you know that?" Loki sighs."W-wait, YOU HEARD ALL THAT, LOKI?!" Lilian gasps."How can I not? You're all still keyed onto my frequency!" Loki explains."Ooops." You say with zero concern. Lilian once again breaks down into nonverbal blubbering."Children, all of you." Loki continues with exasperation. "It's always something with this squadron.""Well, you wouldn't be interrupting us if you didn't think it was important." You grunt. "So what's the situation?""I'm picking up two contacts on radar. Most likely Flankers. My guess is that they're a CAP flight. They're radiating and making no secret they're up there." Loki warns. "I suggest you either take them out or bypass them.""Flying around is going to add a lot of flight time..." You frown."We can try going under them. Fly nap of the earth." Amy suggests. "The terrain below us is uneven enough to mask our approach."That was true, but it was also a dangerous tactic, even in daylight."But if take em out they won't be a problem later!" Lara whines, eager to jump in on some action.>Ambush the Flankers>Bypass the Flankers>Fly low to the ground>Other
>>41880531>>Ambush the Flankerssynchronized attack, everyone!
>>41880531>Ambush the Flankers

>>41880531>>Ambush the Flankers
>>41880531>>Bypass the FlankersThose OB bastards are probably hording all those futuristic combat suits. Let's get some for Jager!
>>41880531>Fly low to the groundWe are GUD at flying, and ambushing the airbase will give us nice, clustered high value targets that is bunched up sitting in the storage.Also, slav avionics a shit
>>41880531>Ambush the FlankersEngage them with the XLAA from beyond visual range.
>>41880531>Fly low to the groundWE SHALL ENGAGE IN THE TRADITION HELD BY THE DEMONS OF RAZGRIZ!
>>41880569>Four HorsemenDon't you fucking start
>>41880531>Fly low to the ground
>>418805694 horsemen really? I'd rather go Demons of Razgriz.
>>41880605Yeah, and everyone else, too!
>>41880675>>41880747It really tells how bad a mission is when people prefer having enemy commandos taking potshot on them with Manpads as alternative.
>>41880531"We'll fly NOE and try to sneak past them." You say. "If we take them down now, we might tip off OB to our presence.""Awwwwwww." Lara whines."It's the most prudent course of action." Lilian agrees, having finally regained her shaky composure."All right! Just follow me!" Amy says cheerfully as her Super Hornet dives for the deck. Lara's Eagle and Lilian's Typhoon both quickly follow suit and not wanting to be left behind, you push your stick forward and nose your own Eagle down.>roll 1d10 (AIR roll. You need a 5 or lower!)

>>41881001Hell yeah, Armchair starting us up early.
>>41881001Tank Commander you glorious bastard, you keep this up, you'll be promoted to Captain of the Snow Battalion
>>41880979At this point in your flying career, flying NOE was practically a required skill. However, that didn't necessarily mean you were an expert at it, nor did that mean you actually liked doing it. NOE flights were harrowing enough in the day, but you could at least SEE the terrain. At night, you're restricted to just your instruments and your nightvision. Thankfully, the terrain is rather forgiving, with few steep hills or cliffs to have to make quick maneuvers around. Amy in the lead also helps, as you can take her cues whenever she maneuvers to avoid an obstacle, the twin flares of her Super Hornet's engines providing a guiding light for you. "All right, it looks like you're past them. They don't even know you're there." Loki says, impressed. "The first of the camps should be coming up right now. Just remember, once you hit them, all hell is going to break loose.""How about if we hit all three at once? We have three planes with ground attack munitions." Lilian suggests. "A single alpha strike would mean we could escape before any serious opposition arrives.""That sounds kinda dangerous, splitting up like that." Amy says skeptically. >Stick together and take down each camp one by one.>Split up and try to hit all three camps at once.>Other
>>41881179>>Split up and try to hit all three camps at once.Get in get out.
>>41881179>Stick together and take down each camp one by one.Last time we split up Amy got injured and her Hog got turned into swiss cheese.

>>41881179>>Split up and try to hit all three camps at once.>>OtherOne plane on overwatch in the middle to respond if any one needs help
>>41881179>Split up and try to hit all three camps at once.Come unannounced and leave unnoticed, due to the lack of people left to notice. Murderous, but good idea.
>>41881361The sort of stealth where all the witnesses are dead is the best stealth.
>>41881425Old fashioned stealth.No-one can call for help if everyone is dead.
>>41881179"All right, here's how we do it." You say. "Me, Angel, and Magnet each take a camp and wreck it. Stripes will stay on overwatch to keep an eye for enemy birds. Everybody got it?""Roger!" Your squadmates affirm. Your flight breaks off from a straight approach to the nearest camp and instead fly a little to the west on a parallel track with the line of camps, intending to split up when you're all equal distance from the camps, to guarantee you hit simultaneously for maximum surprise. "All right, girls. Good luck." You say as you pick the center camp to attack."You too!" Lilian says as she breaks off to the left."Pffft, like I need luck." Amy boasts as she turns for the right camp. "Well, just call if you need me." Lara sighs, absolutely bored."Don't worry, Stripes, I'm sure you'll get some action." You laugh as you pick up speed. Up ahead, you can see the lights of the camp in the distance. You switch to your IR view and frown. For what was supposed to be a camp to smuggle fighters across the border, you noticed there was a large amount of heavy equipment being moved around...>Try to get a closer look at what's going on.>Doesn't matter.

Of course.If it's invasion preparation with tanks and things, that's one thing.If it's excavation of another of Peace Vaults, it's another.If it's civilian operation and Intelligence failed in mission briefing, that's third, horrible thing.I am for learning a bit more of stuff that's happening and possibly not committing war crimes that would be used by One Belka to justify worse.
>>41881543>Closer look>Get on the radio with the rest of the squadron, ask if they’re seeing similar things at their targets
>>41881640Or even worse, we get tagged for committing crimes and we get hunted down as 'monsters'. The last thing we want is to be a scape goat.
>>41881679dammit why can't the Grey men stay dead?
>>41881679Would our uncle *really* throw us under the bus like that?yes
>>41881731Because Belka will rise again.
>>41881737Because he know we can endure it, and stay hidden when he find out real culprit.Because he realize we are the heroes that Belka deserve, not the one they need currently.Because we are the Valkyrie.
>>41881737It's not uncle who I am thinking of setting us up (all though he could still be one of them). there are a number of elements who would LOVE to see our group REMOVED one way or another.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>41881543Something didn't feel right. Even though it was more dangerous, even though it had the chance of giving your presence away, you had to know. This wasn't just some regular camp. You roll you plane slightly, ripping the right wing downwards so you could get a better view of the ground. You keep your grip on the throttle tight, in case something went wrong and you had to bug out fast.>roll 1d10 (ID roll. You need a 6 or lower!)

>>41881845And they light up on your IR, right as day. Jet engines. Dozens of them. Your mouth goes dry as you see rows of fighters lined up on temporary airfields bulldozed into the sand. You see heavy duty SAM launchers being set up, pointing towards the Belkan border. However, the odd thing was that you didn't see any bomber or attack craft. They were all pure or multi-role fighters, and from the stacks of munitions stored near them, they were being loaded with a pure AA armament. The only thing you could think of was that they were going to flying air cover for something, but for what?And it clearly involved the Belkan border. Were they going to escort something over it, or the other way around?You consider reporting your findings to Loki right away, but another part of your mind fears that doing so would tip off your presence here. Anyways, it wouldn't matter if this whole place was a crater in the ground, anyways.>You need to get the warning out.>Just focus on bombing the shit out of this airfield.>Other

>>41882155.....i bet in near future some VIP will be take a plane ride from Belka to Osea for some talk, and we find the planes supposed to intercept it.
>>41882155It's gotta be some sorta SUPERWEAPON. Maybe like one of those flying carriers, or a massive air-to-ground attack craft.
>>41882070>>Just focus on bombing the shit out of this airfield.Gotta trust Uncle. He sent us on this mission for a reason. And that reason is TO PREPARE THE WAY FOR BELKA'S RESURGENCE. ALL HAIL BELKA..
>>41882198>inb4 Gullinbursti vs Agaion Airship Fight! Complete with boarding action!

>>41882212That is an acceptable goal.
>>41882244Luckily we have a Gyges-class Flying Battleship. Although was meant to protect the Aigaion from enemy fighters, I guess the sheer volume of missiles can put a dent into another flying fortress.
>>41882244WOO MORE SHIT TO STEAL!
>>41882329Do we even have aircraft that are capable of launching and landing from carriers, not mentioning a flying carrier?
>>41882352We can buy CATOBAR mods for the eagles. The Super hornet is also capable.
>>41882393>CATOBAR mods for the eaglesAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>41882352Doesn't Lilian have a Rafale?
>>41882404Well technically we don't need to go that far. All we need is STOBAR all we need then is re-enforced landing gear and an arrestor hook.
>>41882410Eurofighter Typhoon.Close, but Rafail a shit.
>>41882393Eagles can carrier launch?
>>41882432If you just want it to take off and land from a carrier, sure, but that's a far cry from a carrier fighter.
>>41882439You're just salty that the Rafale is getting sales while the Tranche 1 Typhoons are getting retired to fund the Tranche 2.
>>41882442It could have. The idea got scrapped IRL though.
>>41882442No, but a navalised version was thought up to compete with the "riskier" Tomcat. It had folding wingtips and a tailhook.
>>41882070You put your Eagle in a tight turn in an effort to come around on another pass. No time to send a warning, you were just going to have to burn this whole damn camp to the ground. You arm your SODs. Sensing your weapon selection, your HUD switches to look down mode and starts painting potential targets. Your most immediate concerns were the clusters of planes and the SAM sites scattered around the base. You were in a bit of a bind here. You could only fire off two SODs at the time. You could probably destroy all the planes in one pass, but you'd be vulnerable to the SAMs, regardless of whether you tried to break away or reengage. If you focused on the SAMs, it could give the planes time to take off.>Focus on the planes.>Focus on the SAMs>Fire one SOD off at each>Other
Talking about EF, here the bid war between Sukhoi and Eurofighter to replace some of our old fighters is quite hot.And Euros offer manufacturing facility to be build here. Cue the butthurt of Sukhoi fans here.
>>41882352Anything's carrier compatible if you're brave enough.

>>41882491>>Focus on the planes.If we destroy the planes in one pass, we don't need to worry about it.
>>41882432The Eagle, as well as most other USAF aircraft have tailhooks standard as an emergency measure.
>>41882491>Fire one SOD off at each
>>41882653The tailhook would need to be heavily reinforced. It's not up to the strain of being used hundreds of times.
>>41882653Well this is new.Thanks anon.
>>41882491You decide to take aim for the clusters of planes. The SAMs would be dangerous to you, but those planes would be dangerous to practically anybody if they managed to take off. You fire off your two ready and waiting SODs, the fat missiles disengaging from your wings and deploying their own little wings as they glide towards their targets. >roll 2d10 (AtG roll. You need a 4 or lower for maximum effect!)

Oh for fucks sake
>>41882919or not all trying to roll at once as it seems that seems to result in highly similar rolls.Time for Merc's "fun" ride of dice induced incompetence.
>>41882975oh look, time for your "funposting"Go away. Stop reading the quest. You are not welcome.
>>41882975Yeah, it's been proven that if you all roll at once, the site's RNG doesn't reset, so most of the numbers are usually close to each other. The trick to it is to wait a few minutes between rolls, IIRC. Not like that's ever gonna happen.Also dice-induced competence isn't just a Merc thing.
Rolled 7, 10 = 17 (2d10)>>41882873
>>41883043Isn't this how it's supposed to be?I mean, as far as I know in a two seater plane, the backseat guy bail out first and the frontseat second.
>>41882975are you also the whiny guy that was complaining that we weren't getting any downtime threads in the middle of an actual downtime thread?
>>41882873Unfortunately, your SODs overshoot your intended target slightly. You first one glides over the front rank of planes before opening up and vomiting out hundreds of deadly little submunitions which home in on the nearest heat sources, which are the idling engines or the planes below. Explosions ripple along the line of grounded planes, tearing Flankers and Fulcrums to pieces like burnt paper. Your second SOD flies past the main cluster of planes, deploying near the back where it destroys about four planes while scattering explosives all across a small complex of temporary trailer buildings, and a couple of fuel tankers. As you shoot past, you can see easily about 2/3s of the planes either in flames or blocked from being able to take off, while the six Flankers in the front of the formation begin powering up their engines for emergency takeoff. Meanwhile, your radar warning receiver screams as SAM radars light up in an attempt to target you.>No use staying. Hit afterburners and bug out.>Loop around. Maybe you can finish off those Flankers before they take off.>Other
>>41883168>>Loop around. Maybe you can finish off those Flankers before they take off.

Does Karla have any "tells" in her flying style? I really hope no one recognizes her flying style if she does have tells.
>>41883265You can have tells with a flying style?
>>41883168>Loop around and finish the Flankers
>>41883168This is a hard choice...>Loop around. Maybe you can finish off those Flankers before they take off.XAAMs, tails, takeoff. Fun.Then run like you never ran before.
>>41883289Yes. Individual pilots might always start a maneuver a certain way. If you notice this, and see the tell, you can prepare for that and knock him out of the sky.
>>41883289it could be what targets you pick, or the kind of weapons you've brought on your loadout, something that stays consistent ant throughout their career regardless of paint scheme.
>>41883289Yes, for instance if all of your aircraft are getting fucked over by one plane then you are fighting an ace combat protagonist.
Rolled 8, 8, 5 = 21 (3d10)>>41883168Well, with the majority of the planes toast and a big chunk of the camp going up in flames, you figure that the fire would eventually reach a fuel dump or stocked munitions, which would pretty much take out the rest of the camp. And even if those Flankers could take off, it's not like they had anywhere to land at anymore.However, the scream of your RWR was still rather concerning. You hit your afterburners in an attempt to bug out before they could retaliate.>roll 1d10 (ACM roll. Roll 1d10)

>>41883388Thankfully, you fly fast and low enough that the camp's SAM sites can't get a lock on you in time before you're out of their effective range. You give a huge sigh as you lean back in your seat. "Angel, Magnet, my camp's toast. How are you two doing?" You ask over the radio."I managed to eliminate what looked to be a few tankers and an AWACS plane." Lilian reports. "Not sure what they were there for, through.""Um I didn't really check what I was bombing." Amy admits. You glance off to where Amy's camp was and only saw a massive conflagration even larger than the one you caused. Those FAEs were not something to be messed with. "Looks like you three had a lot of fun." Lara grumbles."Well, it looks like you may have some action, yet." Loki grunts. "My screen is lighting up like a Christmas tree! Contacts are converging on your position, fast!""Can we make it back to the Pillar?" You ask."I'm not sure. You're certainly going to have to fight or sneak your way through." Loki says grimly. "There's at least four squadrons in the air and more showing up by the minute. I think it might be a good idea to flee across the Belkan border.">Head back for the Pillar.>Flee into Belka>Other

Now can we tell him that something was super off kilter?
>>41883593>>Flee into BelkaMaybe we'll meet somebody interesting.

>>41883593>>Head back for the Pillar.Don't start an international incident
>>41883593"We're heading back for the Pillar." You say, adjusting your heading accordingly. "And Loki, we saw some pretty strange stuff. It looked like OB were prepped for some kind of air sweep or massive air escort, but no visible bombers or anything like that. I think you should pass it up the chain.""Roger that, Valkyrie. I'll let command know." Loki says. "Meanwhile, you've got four squadrons out for blood. They're spread out right now but once they engage the rest are sure to jump in. The good news is, they still don't have a clear idea of where you are. You might be able to sneak past through a gap in their coverage if you don't feel up to fighting them.">We'll break through the old fashioned way.>We'll try to sneak through.>Other

>>41883813"We'll sneak through." You say. "Better to avoid a fight we don't need to get into.""All right." Loki says in agreement. "Your best bet would be like last time. Fly NOE and try to sneak through under their radar. It might be trickier, though. They've got more planes and are spread out better. I'm also picking the presence of an enemy AWACs, too, so they'll definitely be having better detection capability than last time. You might have to split up to lessen chances of being seen...""What? That's crazy!" Amy growls. "I kinda remember what happened the last time we split up!""But with the four of together, we're much easier to detect..." Lilian says, concerned."I just wanna shoot something..." Lara groans.>We'll split up. Less chance to be detected.>We stick together.>Other

You assure your wingmate."Mmmmm. That's a promise!" Lara grumbles. Once again, the four of you dive for the deck., with Amy in the lead as you try to evade your pursuers. Loki's radar data marks the enemy planes on your HUD, and they are all uncomfortably close, almost right on top of you.""All right, slow and steady..." Amy says with a bit of uncertainty."Now's not the time to lose your nerve, Magnet..." You groan.>Roll 1d10 (AIR roll. You need a 5 or lower to succeed!)

>>41884346as long as we avoid ten and other rolls passed, no reason to panic.
>>41884371One of our wingmates rolled a 9, I think they were spotted.
>>41884284"All right girls, just follow me close." Amy says as she drops her Super Hornet down into a deep ravine. It was deep enough to block radar waves, but it was distressingly narrow. Narrow enough that all of you had to flying through on your sides."Are you sure this is gonna work?" Lara asks nervously."Of course. Nobody's gonna expect us to fly through this shit!" Amy laughs."Yeah, there's a good reason for that." You say as you look at the uncomfortably close rock walls of the ravine.Up above, the OB fighters continue their search pattern, flying back and forth in an effort to find your flight. However, it appeared they were having no luck, thanks to you. "All right, we're clear!" Amy says as the ravine begins to open up. You check your screen and do confirm that the OB fighters were behind you now. It was a clear shot to the Pillar. >Head straight back.>Take a couple of parting shots before you leave.>Other

Well, tonight was nothing too exciting, but everything went swimmingly...there's just that matter of what the HELL why they were loaded for bear.
>>41884596It was obviously something big. Something that required complete air superiority.
>>41884615...Like another flying fortress? Yikes.
>>41884596lets see, tons of air-superiority fighters, lots of SAMs, near border of Belka in round table. No bombers, so air-superiority fighters means escorting something BIG that needs tons of AA defense. But the puzzling thing are the SAMs. The SAMs are there for making a hotzone in which bombers cannot go over for bombing. so then what are the SAMs protecting? Agaion Airborne Aircraft carrier anyone?
>>41884615Another incident like Mother Goose one crossed in my mind.Or they still excavating some super bomber from some vault and readying their fighter just in case.Or they just that idiot and think Belkan government can be toppled just with air superiority.
>>41884520>>Head straight back.let's not ruin our luck

Guys, I just remembered. There was another Heavy command cruiser before the Agaion and Gyges series. The Hresvelgr. They might've found it's crashed remains and found enough resources to salvage it and upgrade it.
>>41884708That thing exploded in impact with the deck. They might as well invest those resources building a whole new Heavy command Cruiser.
>>41884520"Haha, we're free clear!" Amy laughs."That was rather... intense." Lilian admits."Heheh, like your alone time with Shiba?" You tease."NO." Lilian states flatly. However, you little lighthearted moment is interrupted when Loki buts in, as expected."Sorry girls, I need a status check for weapons and fuel." He says grimly."Why?" You blink. "Did something happen?""It looks like OB really was planning something." Loki continues. "Belka and Osea just reported that secure prison facilities all over the continent have been hit. The Gray Men are loose.">And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget Vertical Tanks on Saturday!
>>41884840Thanks for the thread, Merc. I'll see you next time.
>>41884840Someone bring the Razgriz out of retirement.
>>41884840>Gray MenWell FUCK.
>>41884840anyways. That was one mission that went super smoothly. Except for GODDAMMIT GRAY MEN!Hope all teh legendary aces meet up.
>>41884840Thanks for thread.>"Belka and Osea just reported that secure prison facilities all over the continent have been hit. The Gray Men are loose."Do you all think our favorite Wizard also tag along with the Gray Men?
>>41884840>Loose greysTIME TO GO HUNTING!WOOT WOOT!
>>41884890what about Pixy?
(For anyone that doesn't know: The Gray Men are basically an ultra-nationalist Belkan group that were DIRECTLY responsible for the Circum-Pacific War- the setting of Ace Combat 5, and in a way, responsible for Karla's unfortunate past regarding burst missiles. They're powerful folks with their hands in a lot of pies.)
>>41884942too many pies. They might've started the Belkan war as well back then when they had government positions.
>>41884927AFAIK he is not involved with Gray Man at any capacity.Well, its a good reason for him to back and mentor us now.
>>41884927Last time we saw Pixy was sometime after in AC4 (in the AC0 Cutscenes). So he's kinda free to go.Personally, I'm wondering about Sorcerer 1. Does he go to rejoin Wizard, or stay in his job at an insurance company?
>>41884977In interview he seems cooled down a lot, so unless his family is taken hostage he maybe choose to stay low with his insurance job.
>>41884969>>41884890Ironically, A World With No Boundaries would be diametrically opposed to the Gray Men. AWWNB believes in the elimination of the very concept of borders to make nations and nationalism irrelevant, while the Gray Men want a resurgent Belka as the dominant nation on Strangereal.
>>41885026Well then, I do believe Smokey has finished repairing our shiny morgan. How's progress on the Gullinbursti?
>>41885026So Merc will we ever know what Lillain and Shiba did in that Prison cell?

>>41885433Should I bring out my tinfoil hat?
>>41886379Hey Merc, guess what I evaporated with my .270 yesterday? A feral cat that looked eerily similar to that.
>>41886385>A feral cat that looked eerily similar to that.You bastard.
>>41886460Seriously fuck feral cats, they destroy every ecosystem they get into and spread diseases to other species, I shoot them whenever I see them.
>>41886479I guess everyone will say otherwise if its a dog eh.What a bigotry.
>>41886498You don't get anywhere near as many feral dogs, they are limited to domesticated environments and don't propagate outside of those for many reasons.Though in their place I have to deal with foxes and the occasional wolf trying to stir shit up on my property.
>>41886498Uhh no, if a feral dog is causing problem like that I shoot it too...
