Masson watched Rodes cover her right, peaking around the corner of a pile of rocks marking the beginning of what was a small hill. On her left was a thick patch of jungle. Not that the jungle wasn´t thick where she was standing now. Not that this entire planet couldn´t be called infested and polluted by plants. So here she was again, in a different patch of the Niemandszone, still running after some alien tech. After Da Geek had analyzed the data acquired from the previous mission it became apparent that there were even more alien techno-devices hidden in the area she had now set foot into. He was really excited about all this, to her the whole thing seemed strangely staged. The data indicated that there were five devices of which four were valuable for the mission. They had to be activated one after another in a certain sequence… well it really seemed oddly staged. But that wasn´t her problem. She´ll let Da Geek handle this stuff. What she was here for was to handle once again Yu Jing forces roaming the area, also running after those alien devices. ‘Let them’, she thought, ‘I´ll make sure they´ll be shot in the process.’

This mission was probably going to be tougher than the last one. The Nomads had found out that PanO had also gotten wind of the devices and were already on their way to have a look themselves. She wanted to be gone by the time they arrived. Time was thus of the essence.

‘Delcour’, she whispered into her comm device, ‘proceed for triangulation device alpha’. Delcour, the units engineer, had been briefed by Da Geek and would perform the triangulation, starting on the right flank. Da Geek himself was off for some other mission this time around. Their allies, the Nomads, hadn´t felt the need to explain themselves. She didn´t mind, she didn´t like him anyway. ‘Bisbois you cover him’, she added, ‘fill the jungle with lead, let´s see if some Jings are lurking further ahead.’ Accompanied by the comforting sound of an HMG deforresting the area Delcour advanced to the first alien device and began working on it. A scream up ahead indicated that Bisbois had actually hit something somewhere in the jungle. So the Jings were already there. ‘Seems like we´ve got company’, she stated the obvious.

Then she heard it. At first she thought it would be some of those strange birds living in the trees but there was an odd artificial bytone to it. The sound grew louder, more threatening and then she figured what it was. ‘Merde!’, that being french for ‘shit’, and then, ‘I’ve got AD troops coming down right next to my position!’ Next she heard the unmistakable ‘thud’ of an AD troop hitting the ground to her left. She peered into the thick jungle but couldn’t see a damn thing. ‘de Lange do you…’, but she was interrupted by de Lange who was positioned to her left flank but a bit further ahead. De Lange, as always all coolness went, ‘got visual on a Tacbot, opening fire’. Then she saw the damn thing, the problem being, the damn thing saw her, too. ‘ALEPH?’, went through her mind along with a bullet to her gut. She hit the floor, holding her stomach. This was going to be a rough ride to the other side. She heard Rodes screaming, ‘Lt Masson is down! I repeat, Lt Masson is down!’ Abel chimed in, ‘de Lange got the Tacbot, but there is another Tacbot flying in. It shot de Lange! I’ll try to get closer, it hasn’t discovered me yet.’ She heard HMG-Fire but it wasn’t one of theirs. It sounded like ALEPH, ‘must be the Tacbot’, she thought. Slowly she tried to roll on here side to see what Rodes was doing. He was crouched right next to her, wide eyed and obviously scared. He quickly glanced at her but didn’t seem to stomach the blood flowing out of the hole in her belly.

There were more screams in the thick of the jungle. ‘Someone must take care of that Tacbot, and soon’, she thought. Again she heard Abel over the comm, ‘I’m closing in, I think I’ll get a good shot at it’, he said while the Tacbot waltzed through the jungle guns blazing. She heard Abel opening fire, but he did not cope with the return fire. The Tacbot went on, shot Delcour to bloody pulp. Manseau went next, then there was only silence. She looked over to Rodes and saw that his fear had turned to full-blown panic. ‘Where is it!? Where is it!?’, he screamed and then it came, breaking through the thick foliage on their left flank. She was too weak by now to roll over again, thus watched Rodes run like a rabbit followed by hundreds of bullets. The thing almost ran past her, but then it suddenly stopped. Lying on the ground she watched its servo-powered heels turn around slowly. It took two long steps toward her, bowing down. She felt the cool touch of a metallic hand, a sharp pain as the electric current began to flow, then nothing.

Francis Bellanger took over command. Rodes had been shot by the Tacbot soon after Masson died, but then the Tacbot went into the crossfire of the Garous ending its rampage. The Garous and Bisbois managed to prevent the incoming squad of Celestial Guards reaching the objective until PanO-Troops made an appearance and it was time to go.
