At the signal, the APC opened fire with the phased plasma cannon, striking the stern of the dropship. All hell had broken loose under the initial assault. Corporal William’s lightly depressed the firing mechanism and his M5 RPG smashed into the plasma lit surface of the port engine. Dugan’s M83A2 SADAR, struck within seconds after the plasma cannon’s first bolts striking landing almost simultaneously with Huey’s RPG; striking the Octarian 12 in the weakened armor of the vessel. With a loud explosion, the port engine exploded in a roiling blast, the shockwaves knocking the marine’s from their feet. As they scrambled back to their feet, they dropped quickly into cover as weapon’s fire sent fragments of mortar and stone flying.
Through the resulting smoke and the remaining haze from the smoke grenades. The marine’s can see that the dropship is going nowhere anytime soon.

The APC opening fire was all Dirk was waiting for He was looking for anyone to kill. The SADARs and the RPGs hit the mark and the port enging exploded knocking Dirk on his ass. Getting back on his feet with a grim smile on his face he watched the ship burn. "Ya, fuckers! Thats right! Open up for the Marines" He shouted at the burning wreak.

Then his IR lit up. Oh shit, he thought, here it comes. "Dugan, Contact left and center. I got fire from The first two buildings on the top left, the third building from the eastern wall, and the middle building in the western section of the village. I am engaging the enemy to the left" He said over the com.


Locking on the weapons fire in the left buildings he unleashed hell. His Smartgun blazing, Dirk moved forward keeping cover as best as he could. A smile crossed his lips as he killed anything that moved. It was payback time at last.

Scanning the area and seeing what was happening, Jacob smiled to himself - a battle, not facing aliens! As it should be!


"Bojan. Get your squad to split fire between those two buildings on the top left - conserve ammo and aim for muzzle flashes!" Turning Jacob looked at Con's squad



"Con, get your sights on the third building from the eastern wall and get 'em pinned!"



"Wrench - target the middle building in the western section of the village!"



Making sure they'd understood the orders Jacob turned to survey the scene again...

He squinted - and noticed some more movement...

flicking his comlink again "Can we get the APC gunner to target the squads in the gardens and the guys moving up towards the ship. After they're gone - cycle your fire between the buildings."



"Reckon we can manage that guys? get into better positions if you have to - just pin the guys in the building until we can get the armour to kill them them utterly! Nobody, I repeat NOBODY is allowed to let anyone from their allocated building get on that ship! Now, anything I've missed that's tactically compromising DO let me know"



Scuttling over to Bojan's squad he knelt down "You're splitting one squads fire between two buildings, so I reckon you could do with an extra rifle, lets go!" Lighting a cigarette Jacob got into cover and started aiming down his rifle - looking for muzzle flashes!

"CHEEE-HOOO BITC...!" Williams yelled, his mark dead on and the combined firepower. Huey wasn't able to finish his sentence as they immediately took fire from buildings facing their position.

"Con, get your sights on the third building from the eastern wall and get 'em pinned!"

Huey heard his orders and reloaded his RPG, setting his sites over a window where rapid flashes were coming, that was his target. He exhaled slowly and squeezed the trigger lightly and the rocket flew, the rocket trail lighting up his IR Lens.



Huey went back to his pack and reached for another rocket. Bullets chipping off the masonry around him. He took another look at the downed ship. There were survivors and more people were running towards the crippled vessel.

"Con! there are 3 survivors, one of them wounded from the dropship. And a shitload of people rushing the crash site on our right flank!" He reported back. "Eric you heard Top put fire on those guys"

Fox watched the combined arsenal hit the dropship.The ground shook fox up to his knees. Fox was gonna get up in a cheer but it was countered by the barrage coming from the buildings north of his position. He lied perfectly still on the ground as Dirk went right by charging with his smartgun. Readying his sight out on the group of people in the village as he sat in his prone position.

"Im already taking care of the men on the Right Flank."fox dropped his headset back down as he took aim into one of the people from the flank and fired. Sliding the first bolt out, and then fired again.

Simovic heard the enormous explosion as his rocket and the other weapons found their mark, the shock wave knocking him momentarilly to the ground. Getting up he discarded the now useless SADAR and unslung his Pulse Rifle from his back, however the dust and confusion was making it hard to identify what was going on. Luckily Dirk who had been on point was seeing things more clearly.

[quote=""Dirk Pitt""]

Then his IR lit up. Oh shit, he thought, here it comes. "Dugan, Contact left and center. I got fire from The first two buildings on the top left, the third building from the eastern wall, and the middle building in the western section of the village. I am engaging the enemy to the left" He said over the com.

[/quote]

"Ok Dirk acknowledged".

[quote=""Apachetear""]


"Bojan. Get your squad to split fire between those two buildings on the top left - conserve ammo and aim for muzzle flashes!" Turning Jacob looked at Con's squad



"The rest of us focus on the second building on the left".



Simovic having gained a little insight into the proceedings of the firefight quickly cocked the Grenade Launcher of his Pulse Rifle and took aim at one of the muzzle flashes from the second building. Pulling the trigger he watched as the M40 HE grenade sailed towards its target. This should even things up. He hoped.

Eric spots another group running towards the dropship from further in the village. "We have more contacts, unknown classification, further in! Orders?"


While he's waiting for orders, he opens fire at where the others are shooting, hoping to keep them down at least.

"Ok squad, Dirk keep pouring fire at the first building on the left, Quinn & Schmitt you assist him, I want short controlled bursts".



"The rest of us focus on the second building on the left".


[/quote]

"Roger that Dugan, I'll keep hammering the building on the left." Dirk said over the com as he slowed his advance on the buildings . I dont want to get too far ahead.


Then just as he slowed a grenade sailed passed and slammed into one of the building with a large explosion. Watching bits of brick and what he could onle believe was part of a person fly through the air Dirk smiled.

"Knock knock assholes" He shouted over the thunder of his smartgun

Quinn double-clicked his comm, signaling that he acknowledged the order. He bolted up to behind Dirk and to his right, keeping his attention on the building that Dirk was advancing to.

"Sir," Quinn got on the comm for a short burst to his superiors. "Private Matthias is still alive, over." {tag any Officer}

Quinn aimed a frag grenade for a window and fired, the CHUFF sound carrying above the noise of the pulse rifles. {roll Ballistics please}

Simovic spotted Roberts and Quinn trying to advance, he spoke over 1st squads comm channel "Stay in cover and only move up when ordered, don't want to take anyone home in a bodybag minus a head".

It did sound a little harsh but he'd seen to many good men die playing at being Rambo



[quote=""Quinn""]

"Sir," Quinn got on the comm for a short burst to his superiors. "Private Matthias is still alive, over." {tag any Officer}

[/quote]

Simovic was surprised with this news, Mathias had lit up like the forth of July after that shock, he shouted to the two men either side of him. "Honeysett, Bojan what do you want to do, we could attempt to drag him into cover or just leave his body until the area is safe or maybe something else I've missed?"

Listening to the news of the living marine Jacob paused to think

"No, wait until the area is secure! I don't want to potentially throw more lives for the possibility of one. When the area is confirmed as secure we can go grab him and help! Hell, if he wakes up when they've passed him it'll be a surprise for them"



Turning back to the building he sighted down his rifle and started to fire...

Looking at what was going on, Jacob blanched in horror. He'd nearly made a rookie mistake and every commander's nightmare

"APC! CHECK? THE GUYS IN THE GARDEN AREN'T HOSTILE. REPEAT NOT HOSTILE, CYCLE FIRE BETWEEN THE BUILDINGS ONLY. REACT TO IDENTIFIED THREATS WHEN THEY PRESENT THEMSELVES!"


He coughed and lit a cigarette. He was trembling slightly, but calmed with the first drag before resuming his firing.
