View Full Version : Choke Point
2004-01-27, 10:29 PM
-Sina Dropship Center, Searhus-
[Searhus All]Rahl: We have Terrans coming through the gates. We need several squads to block these guys. Squad leaders, tell me if interested, I have devised several choke points where we can keep them back.
Otherick saw the text message on his helmet HUD. CR5 Rahl wanted squads? Otherick radioed his commander. He had nothing better to do, he was in line for vehicles- he was 21st out of 22.
"Do you think we should help Rahl?"
"I guess so, why not. The NC's pretty much gone, we're going to push them off in maybe twenty minutes. We wouldn't want to fight the Terrans as well. I'll talk to him."
A few minutes later, the squad leader came in over squad radio.
"We've been assigned a choke point. Another squad will provide an AMS. Everyone get your vehicles and move out to waypoiint one."

Sorry, I've been busy.
Chapter 2: Dig in
Either Rahl was a sodomist, or they got a really sucky spot.
Otherick's squad was assigned a road intersection. Not even a real tower. Other squads surrounded the gate, forming a ring around it. CEs were busy laying mines, AMSes being driven in, and Spitfires being positioned were all the signs of a typical defense. Skyguards came in to park.
Otherick spawned a Reaver at the nearest base. He would defend from the air and serve as a scout. From the air, Otherick saw that the squad to their right was the Sons of Vanu- Rahl's outfit. He saw some girl come up to three squadmembers and unload on them with the Lasher.
"Good grief! (http://planetside-universe.com/comic/?id=9) How are we going to defend this place if we are TKing each other?"
He flew over the gate. Nothing, yet. He checked back with his squad. They began to dig a trench to get into. He landed to help, but his squad leader ordered him not to.
"Stay in the air. We'll need you if things get bad all of a sudden."
He got in the Reaver and got airborne. He then saw a cyanish laser fly out of nowhere about 300 meters from the defense line. He flew towards it. It was a cloaker, and it wasn't friendly. He fired six rockets. They did enough damage to kill the cloaker in one shot. The cloak deactivated and he saw the body missing its half side, ripped open.
He vomited. He hadn't seen a kill that gruesome.

Chapter 3: Thunderclap
A few hundred meters ahead, the Terrans were stuck inside their warp bubble. They were simply waiting for more people. The brave vehicles that dared exit the safety of the bubble recieved a hail of fire.
A Terran Wraith driver exited the bubble, safely cloaked. Other infiltrators could make it out. She was the partner of the soldier who was going to laser designate the Vanu lines for the Flails. She arrived to find the disjointed body of her partner. She pulled out her own laser pointer.
She aimed it at an AMS invisibility bubble behind the trench. The waypoint stuck, and she got back on her Wraith and out of there.
"Break out! I repeat, we have a waypoint, break out and fire!" she yelled into her radio.
At that command, six Prowlers left the bubble first. They were shot at, but they were the decoys for convoys of aircraft, tanks, and bombers coming through on the other side.
The Flails deployed.
Otherick had landed and was having his Reaver repaired from Burster fire when he heard what sounded like a booming, massive thunderclap. He turned to see a crater where the Flail's shot had landed. He jumped in the Reaver and afterburned to combat height.
A Terran Mosquito screamed by. He turned and hit it with 20mm fire. The Mosquito took hits and stopped to turn. Otherick took a chance and fired rockets. They hit, doing excellent damage. He switched back to 20mm and blew up the Mosquito. The last shots hit the engine which simply blew up.
"Otherick! Prowlers coming in! Take them out!" came in over radio.

Chapter 4: Holding the Line
When Otherick got to his assigned target, he nearly had a hernia. Six Prowlers rumbled down the road, turrets scanning the tree line for enemies.
Otherick hit the afterburner and emptied a pod of rockets into the lead Prowler. The rockets streamed ahead and exploded after attempting to pierce the Prowler's thick armor. He hit the afterburner to evade the 12mm chaingun fire. The Prowler's armor buckled and the tank shook, but it kept on rolling.
Dammit! One pod is never enough!
He reloaded the pods. 16 rockets slid from cargo to the firing pods. He turned to make another pass. No enemy air units. This time, he wouldn't have the advantage of surprise. 12mm bullets flew by the Reaver. He went high and opted for a diving attack so that he could hit in the weak spot of all tanks- their top armor.
He fired another 16 rockets. This time, the effect was much worse. He heard several afterexplosions as he flew away, being pelted with 12mm fire. It meant that a rocket or two had gotten inside the tank and exploded, setting off a few of the Prowler's own shells. However, they soon stopped. He looked back. The Prowler was smoking heavily. Crewmembers were already rushing out and going for the Nano Dispenser in the trunk.
He heard a huge explosion, followed by several others like it. The whole Reaver shook. Pieces of it began to fall off. The bursting sound gave it away- a Skyguard was shooting at him. This meant death for the thinly-armored Reaver. He had seconds to live.
He decided to take one for the team. What the hell, he'd respawn.
"BANZAIIIIII!!!!!" he screamed into the radio as he fired all his rockets at the stricken Prowler. Still, it did not explode. He lit up his afterburners and charged straight for the Prowler. The last thing he felt was a huge fire.

Chapter 5: Beam Density
"Keep going....they aren't here yet." said the tank commander, manning the 12mm machinegun assembly.
"Did you see that Reaver...?" replied the turret gunner.
"Private! I know this is your first damn outing, but you don't have to play Captain Obvious. We all saw the Reaver kamikaze the tank!"
"Enemies ahead! I see an entrenched line." said the driver.
"FIRE!" shouted the commander.
The order was the same in the remaining five Prowlers- fire.
The order was the same along the line- the line where Otherick spawned. The AMS was a few hundred meters back. There were mines littering the ground all around it. It was untakeable and unhackable. Motion sensors and Spitfires surrounded it.
"Otherick! You got one tank. Hurry up here, we need to get the rest! Get a Reaver at the base!"
Otherick selected to respawn at the nearest base on the AMS Matrixing Panel. He got in and deconstructed. He came to inside the spawn tubes of the nearest base, as planned. He sprinted to the vehicle pad and got another Reaver. He took off at full speed.
The infantry had taken out another two Prowlers. Otherick unleashed a hail of rockets. A Prowler went up in flames. The two others retreated.
After them came three Sunderers. Each of them was filled with Terran troops. They got out and started shooting. The Vanu shot right back. MAXes stuck their spikes in the ground and fired at amazing speed.
A soldier in his outfit was firing away with his Pulsar. He heard a BZZZZZZ and noticed the remains of a fly, steaming, falling to the ground. There was so much lead and laser in the air that there wasn't even room for the flies to fly.

Chapter 6: Intermission
The Terran troops were butchered by the Vanu weapons fire. Lancers put hypervelocity holes through MAXes. Pulsars and Bolt Drivers did the same for the non-armored infantry. Decimators took out the Sunderers. The Terrans went back into the forest. They were there, but not moving out. The squad leader addressed his troops.
"We can relax a bit. Wounded, get to the AMS and get some medpacks. I want Otherick to serve as our eyes here. Park your Reaver here and get a Mosquito. See if they have an AMS."
He selected again to spawn at the nearest base. He came to in the spawn tubes. He jogged up the stairs, falling on the story between floors two and three. His nose began to bleed. He got to the vehicle pad and spawned a Mosquito.
The Mosquito was a lot faster than the Reaver, and it was hard to see on radar. He flew low to the ground while passing over the defense trench. Everyone cheered at the sight of the speeding Mosquito. He slowed down and flew just over the trees. Nothing. He switched to nose-view camera, which helped when trying to look down. He saw a rocket fire at him. He slammed on the afterburners and it missed. It was a Decimator shot. He decided to move faster.
Bingo! Under a big tree, burned at the top, was an AMS bubble, full of spawning Terrans.
"Commander, I've found it!"
"Fly over it so I can waypoint it!"
He eased the Mosquito forward. He began to take ground fire.
"Hurry! I'm being sh-"
"Got it! GO! You okay?"
"25% damaged. Big hits to the left engine. I can fly with difficulty."
"Set her down behind the trench. Good job. I'm going to send a squad of infiltrators with Boomers to take care of it."
He saw six blurs rise out of the trench and go towards the waypoint. One of them was a squadmember. The others weren't. He was guiding them.
They got to the AMS undetected, because the driver was lazy and didn't bother putting up motion sensors. Each of them layed Boomer High Explosives around the bubble. It was hard to get them directly on, as they were inches from the Terrans, but they did it undetected. A total of twelve Boomers made it on.
"HEY! OVER HERE, COMMIES! EAT THIS!" yelled one of the cloakers as she threw a Jammer grenade, set to detonate on impact. The Jammer grenade's EMP blast overloaded the Boomers, setting off all eight at once.
Every Terran turned, but it was too late. The fireball was visible from the trench.

w00t, nice to see your writing about it again

Chapter 7: Hell Hour
Leading the Terran offensive was a CR4. A fair rank.
The CR4 rode silently on his Wraith. Over radio, he recieved a message from the TR High Command. A CR5.
"Brigadier General! Why the hell are you not taking a base! You have a huge force, you outnumber the enemy, GO!" barked the CR5.
"Sir, we are still analyzing their stregnths and weaknesses, they have a defense trench..." replied the CR4.
"BULL SHIT, YOU ARE! TAKE THE OFFENSIVE! ATTACK!"
"Sir, yes, sir." grumbled the CR4. He got out his PDA and typed a text message to appear on all Terran soldier's heads in the area.
"Advance to the nearest base. Let's get this show on the road."
Otherick was standing next to his Mosquito, chatting with the girl who was repairing it. A rumbling sound started.
"Volcano's making that tremor." he said.
"No, that's not....get in. The Terrans are here." she replied.
Joining the rumbling was the sound of dozens and dozens of Terrans marching forward. Otherick jumped inside the Mosquito. He tried to make an overflight, but his map read about 30 shoulder-fired missiles headed his way. He gunned the afterburners and whipped the Mosquito around and headed full-blast for his lines. The first missile hit him. He made it over the trench and jumped out. He was nearly hit by other missiles streaking for his Mosquito.
The weapons fire began again. First the Bolt Drivers, then everything else. Otherick put his head up over the trench, then blacked out.

Chapter 8: Don't Lose Your Head
The Terran Sniper grinned as he nailed the stupid, stupid Vanu who dared stick his head over the trench.
2004-03-23, 10:01 PM
Epilogue: Going Over
Otherick respawned, making a mental note to not keep his head over the trench for too long. No time for air combat. He got out his Pulsar and leaped into the trench.
The sniper was either dead or gone, but Otherick didn't keep his head out for long, anyway. He got up, fired short bursts, and got down again. He got several charging infantry. His buddies with Lashers and Lancers lit up the line with anti-vehicular fire.
The charge turned out to be suicidal. The Terrans turned back under orders from the shy CR4. Otherick noticed the lack of vehicles. Where were the Terran vehicles? He heard whirrs, and MAG-Riders slid behind the trench in a supporting role. Skyguards assisted them. Threshers went over the trench to harass the retreating Terrans.
[Searhus All]Rahl: Let's end this once and for all. Everyone, go over when you see the purple flares. Knock them off the continent!
Purple flares went up all over the line. Vanu charged.
Otherick sprinted, brandishing his Pulsar. Some red mass moved in the bushes. Still moving forward, he turned and gave it a long burst. The dead Terran in RExo slid out of it.
Terran snipers started falling out of the trees, killed by charging infantry. MAG-Riders slid foward, taking on the enemy tanks.
Otherick got behind a rock when 12mm fire came at him. He noticed that he had been hit. The adrenaline blocked the worst of the pain. There was a large wound across his side. He staggered up. The Vanu behind him were also going.
He got up. Just as he was about to pass the rock, he brushed against a tree. It was a big tree. He heard a Lancer warming up. mmmMMMM....
PSHEWWW....an armor-piercing projectile came out of the Lancer. There was an enemy Terran on the other side of the rock! It was a female in Agile armor.
"Ughhhhh...." He tried to move, but it hurt more. The high-velocity Lancer round had stuck him to the tree! Just as a thumbtack sticks paper to a board, he was immobilized. The adrenaline didn't help any more. It hurt more than anything he had ever felt.
The Terran grinned, then was hit by friendly fire. 12mm fire came from behind the bushes, cutting him in half across the upper chest.
Damn Terrans can't even use their own guns...it's getting dark....
He awoke on the ground, a friendly advanced medic standing over him.
"That was a hell of a wound. I've never seen someone impaled before." he said. I revived you. You were about to respawn.
"How's the battle?"
"Over. They're in the gate bubble and retreating for good."
"Damn! I missed it!"
The medic sat down.
"How many kills did you get on the charge?"
"About four, maybe five."
"That's awesome. You missed nothing."
Otherick grinned, ear to ear.
"This is kind of fun."
