    Ale's eyes blinked open, he was out for a just a little while, just long enough for the dust to settle. He picked himself up shacking the mud out of his mane, and turned in the direction of the explosion. "What...What is that?" he asked aloud. The sight of the clouds with a massive hole punched in it holding his gaze captive. He stared for who knows how long before something else got his attention. The light from luna's moon was dimmed and obscured as something began to descend from the clouds. Ale pulled out his binoculars and looked in the direction of the sky wound. A massive dark creation lowered itself from the clouds, the rolling thunder of it's storm clouds heralding it's arrival. "Well buck." ale said as he dropped the binoculars and galloped back to his dishka, pointing it up at the ponies in black carapace armor.

    Breeze looked up to see the clouds move out of the way briefly. But it was enough time to see it.
    The legendary beauty of the night sky....
    The moon.

    "Dear Luna..... it's beautiful..."
    She didn't have time to awe at it for long before she felt a sudden intense pain in her back leg.

    The moment seemed to happen in slow motion; a bullet ripped through her muscles and then the same happened to the other back leg. She felt the warm blood gush from the holes in her legs, and her vision began to fade.
    She fell unconscious as her head hit the ground. She was loosing blood quickly.

    ((Trails will find her there, nopony else please.))

    Dash dug his hooves into the ground and flapped his wings heavily to maintain his footing and keep the tripodded Dishka upright. He closed his eyes and waited until the wind subsided before opening his eyes. He gasped as he caught the view through the hole the bomb had blown in the cloud cover. The night sky beyond was something that no words could describe to Dash. He had only seen the glory of the stars once in his lifetime, the night he had earned his cutie mark.

    Then the form of the Enclave Raptor engulfed the scene, and Dash knew that the time was now to give it everything. He readied and aimed the DShK at the enclave soldiers once again and open fired.

    Scrap's question was an admittedly big one. Trails' entire military career the goal had always been to simply find the raptor, destroying the damned thing had never come up. Yet here it was, staring them in the mouth, and he didn't have the slightest trace of a clue on how to go about knocking it out of the sky. After a few moments of failed attempts at brainstorming the stallion was forced to admit defeat.

    "That's a Raptor, and as for how we're gonna dent it, well that's above our pay-grade." he said with a shrug. "Hangfire get on the horn and see if command's got any bright ideas." The large stallion nodded and got to work barking into the comm. "What you're looking at is the entirety of the Enclave force, excluding what was far enough away from the blast to not get turned into ash and slag."

    "Sarge, command's got an idea, and I think you'll like how simple it is." Hangfire piped up, stuffing the comm in his saddlebag.

    "Share with the class."

    "Shoot the damn thing." Trails gave him a deadpanned look. "Don't worry, they're getting all the AA guns online. We're gonna be providing fire support for the grunts and greenhorns in the trenches while the powder monkeys have all the fun."

    "Typical." Mil Dot added in his first two cents for what seemed like, and probably was, days.

    "With all do respect to orders and all, we're not gonna be much help putting that fire out." Mags chimed in, "What's another drop of water to a roaring fire?"

    "Where do you suggest we go then?" Trails cocked an eyebrow.

    "Alpha. When they shoot that thing out of the sky, it's gonna crash right into Bravo, turning our happy little home into little more than a smoking crater. Now it occurs to me that wiping Bravo off the map and creating a clear path to Alpha is exactly what the Enclave higher ups would want, regardless of the cost at this point because let's be honest noponies flying home from this. Alpha's going to need somepony who can stop that remnant from getting in, somepony who knows they're coming. We can be that somepony."

    Trails nodded for moment pensively. The plan was ruthlessly calculated for success, and her assumptions doubtlessly accurate. Still, the coldness of it didn’t sit well with the notoriously hot blooded Sergeant. He looked to his team and nodded.

    “Kes, remember that ‘order’ I gave you? I think it’s time you initiated it. Hangfire will give you the coordinates of where our friends are posted.” He told the big griffon then turned to the small unicorn next to him. “Scrap, go with Kes and give him any help you can, I’ll meet both of you at the Chapel.”

    ----------------------

    In the trenches the situation continued to deteriorate. While there wasn't anymore troopers pouring into the cracks in the lines, they remaining forces were anything if demoralized. Both sides fought harder than they ever had before, seeing that their home was in the throws of its death rattle.

    Every one of the volunteers fought hard, taking down troopers like they were practiced veterans of the war. The giant pony sized DShK's punched through the black carapace armor the pegasi wore like it was made of tin. Sadly, the gun emplacements were unable to turn enough to mop up those who were already in the trenches with them. A mercenary sniper ran up to Ale, yelling at him to forget the damn machine gun and help. Before anything could be said back, the sniper had a plasma sting rip through their torso in a geyser of gore.

    Kestrel nodded and set about his task. It was simple enough, all he had to do was gather up all the ones that had come along and get to the coordinates that the pony Trails had given him.

    Walking over Kestrel would wait to get the coordinates then glance around for all the others. Taking a quick mental list of who all was there and who wasn't. Some weren't around it'd seem. Damn he'd have to go get them.

    For some reason he felt it was not going to be easy...or very fun. Still if he didn't do it who would? He wasn't to keen on one thing however.

    Staying.

    Kes had fought all sorts of things in his time. Hellhounds to Ghouls, and he had never seen something like the monstrosity of iron and clouds currently descending towards the city right now.

    Nor did he think that most of those here were capable of dealing with it.

    He didn't say anything about it though and just got a tally of those he needed and got to work.

    "C'mon, we've a retreat to organize." Kes said to Scrap, heading off towards the trenches. Once there, it was a matter of directing himself and Scrap to the others, then from there it was a matter of getting to the coordinates that were originally presented to him.

    Should anything get in the way, it would be receiving either a blade or a bolt to its throat and chest in quick succession.

    Scraps nodded and followed Kes without a word, he'd learned through experience that following Kes's orders was pretty much always a good idea, as following the big gryphon's orders had served him well and got him through Filly and several other places since.

    He did speak up just to ask: "So what exactly are we doing?"

    Ale turned to the sniper pony just in time to be bathed in the mercenary's life fluids. "Celestia pissing sun rays!" Ale yelled as he backpedaled narrowly avoiding the soldier's stinger as he swung it at ale. As he took a step back he noticed the rifle the sniper was carrying. Thinking fast he wrapped the rifle in his magic and pulled it over to him just in time to catch the stinger mid swing. The wooden body of the merc's hunting rifle cracked ans splintered from the sudden and violent contact. "So much for that idea." ale thought as he ducked another swing. He couldn't keep this up much longer he needed help.

    (Using all AP to dodge or block with the merc's hunting rifle.)

    Bone laughed as more and more of the enclave in front of the trenches fell to sheila's bullets. Unfortunately not every soldier fell before they reached the front. Out of the corner of his eye the big griffin saw the black carapace of an enclave land in the trench. Killing one of the mercs and moving in to kill... "Shit." Bone exclaimed as he abandoned his dishka and moved to aid the red maned pony. Reaching down he grabbed a trench knife from a glowing pile of goo that used to be a pony. "NO he is mine to kill!" The raider yelled as he used his wings to get above the pegasus and aim the knife for the lightly armored wing joint.

    "Orders are to get all of the voulenters we know, and book it to the coordinates we just got." Kestrel explained, moving down towards the trenches. He could see the trenches below, and the hear the constant chug of the DShK's.

    He could also see the Various Enclave units crawling about there. Dammit, they don't give up do they?

    Drawing his sword Kestrel nodded down to the trenches. "Get ready, we're going in. If its got wings, power armor, and energy weapons, Kill or disable it." the Griffon ordered and then began to move in towards the closest group of familiar fighters he knew; Ginger and that one griffon from the hospital.

    The griffon in question had just moved to tackle, and the pony looked to be defending himself with a rifle...well this was going to be interesting.

    (Moving towards Bonehead and Ginger They'll be the first pick up)

    Dash heard yelling and screaming to the side of him and he looked over, seeing that their lines had ultimately been broken, "Lightning! Keep up the forward fire!" Dash yelled as he heaved his DShK to the side bringing it to be able to cover the area where Kestrel, Bone Head and Ginger Ale were. He then began firing on the Enclave around where they were, covering them.

    Scraps nodded to Kes, ready to follow orders, especially since it meant that they'd be getting away from that massive metal behemoth in the sky.

    Drawing a combo if pistols that he figured would work well, he followed Kes into the trenches, heading for the two ponies that Kes was headed towards, preforming a double tap combo if any enclave came near him.

    (Following Kes, using his reinforcer to stun anypony that comes near him, then point blank headshot with the lightning pistol to finish them off.)

    Trails, Mil Dot, Hangfire, and Mags stood at the entrance Stable 138, staring up at the massive raptor as it began to be rocked by AA canon fire. The old guns on their own probably wouldn't have done so much as scratch the warship, and in truth they were struggling to do that much in unison, but they were succeeding on another front. The force of the blasts shook the ship so violently that the clouds that held it aloft slowly but surely began dispersing. The raptor fired a salvo back at the city beneath, turning a block into nothing more than a smoking crater.

    Trails allowed himself a moment of awe at the massive battle. He'd seen a lot of destruction, but this was on a whole new scale. The back and forth between the AA guns and the Raptor lasted only minutes, but it felt like hours. Every volley shook the ground violently enough to shake the stallions teeth even this far away. In the back of his mind he worried about his friends in the trenches, wondering if Kes would be able to pull through. He did his best to keep those worries there, allowing them anymore wouldn't help them. He had to have faith and focus on his part to play in all this. It was a minor one, but he knew it wouldn't be finished until the final curtain fell.

    ------------------------------------------------------

    In the trenches Ale's fast hoof work kept him out of the trooper's reach for most of their assault, getting only a light graze across his flank. Before the pegasus could press the attack he got a trench knife in his side bringing him to a sudden halt. Today was apparently brought to the wasteland by the letter T for teamwork, as Dash sent a 12.7mm bullet through the buck's head before he could so much as think 'ouch'.

    Above them the Raptor let out another salvo, this one closer to home. A nearby artillery gun was replaced by slag and smoke, it's crew a collective puddle of goo. The AL response was immediate: all canons firing on one point of the ship's underbelly. That got through, and as smoke and fire poured out into the night's sky the soldiers on the ground began cheering. Sure the ship could turn entire city blocks into craters with a single blast, sure when it went down it'd likely take all them with it, they were still taking that monster down. For this first time in decades the ponies of the Apostolov saw a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Hearing the ever growing thunder of guns Kestrel looked up for just a brief moment. What he saw only urged him to move faster. That raptor was going to be coming down, and if he couldn't get these voulenteers out of here, they were going to be crushed like bloatflies under its bulk.

    Moving towards the quickly wrapped up fight where Ale and Bonehead were Kes barked out an order. "We need to move now. Get your gear and lets go." He said quickly turning towards the Pegasus on the DShK and saying the same thing.

    "Any other voulenteers near here rookie?" he asked the pegasus right after that. He could see Flash nearby...but he needed more than that if his mental list was to be believed.

    Dash took in a big sigh when Kestrel asked if there was anypony else who could help them. He looked around, other than several nondescript mercs Dash didn't know, he couldn't really see anypony else, he could spot a few of the Stableton group who could still be alive, except for... Dash's stomach instantly tied in a knot, "Breeze!? Shit!" he cried and rushed over to the crumbled, bloody form of Gentle Breeze, "Breeze? Breeze, are you okay!?" He said. He shook the mare a bit, but it looked grim, "Fuck..." Dash breathed.

    Ale winced as the stinger drew a red line across his flank. Thankfully bone head of all poeple came to the bucks rescue. "NO he is mine to kill!" Ok, maybe not rescue but still the combined efforts of the griffin and dash dropped the trooper. Ale let out a sigh of relief and looked down at the rifle that had stopped one of the earlier attacks and probably saved his life. The hunting rifle in really bad shape the scope had come off and was now buried some where in the mud, the wooden body was cracked and splintered and the barrel was bent at a 15 degree curve. "Yeah, not fixing that anytime soon. However it would be useful for parts if the shot glass needs repair." Ale also noticed that the merc had apparently put some love into his rifle, the clumsy default bolt had been replaced with a much smoother custom build. Before ale could start drooling over the weapon mod, kestrel showed up and announced that it was time to leave. The unicorn nodded and threw the busted rifle into his saddlebags before retrieving the shot glass from the much next to his dishka and moving to kes as he asked where everypony else was. "I think I saw blitz run out there after the bomb went off." ale informed the griff, pointing towards the no mares land.

    Bone smiled as the blade tasted blood. However a shot from behind him stole the kill from him before he could even begin to have fun. The enclave solider dropped, bone's wings keeping the griffin from joining him in the mud. He heard a familiar voice of a griffin. Kestrel, the bird that masqueraded as the bone collector at that old nightmare night party had joined them in the trenches. "About time I saw another damn griffin in this fucking war." Bone said as he yanked the trench knife from the enclave corpse, licking the blood off, and sheathing it in one of the empty loops on his armor. "Mind if I ask where we're going?" Bone queried as he began to field strip one of the more heavily armored troopers that had died in the trenches. The gear he had been using only needed to be slightly modified for griffin use.

    Scraps gulped when he saw the Raptor take damage, not because he didn't want it to get destroyed, but instead because if that monstrosity got taken out of the sky too fast, then he wouldn't be in the clear. Hopefully it wouldn't come to that.

    When somepony that Scraps had seen somewhere but didn't know the name said that Blitz had gone out into no ponies land, he really started to doubt that they'd make it out in time. Sighing, he waited for whatever Kes's orders were, though secretly he vowed to himself that he was going ti get out of here alive, even if it meant breaking orders and fleeing the city. Not like he had anything keeping him there anyway, Bakey had left earlier, si he knew she was safe and headed home.

    His worry showing in his voice, he ventured a quip. "Urm Kes...we've really got to get out of here. Maybe I go grab Flash and you get Blitz? We could each take one of these ponies as backup."

    Kestrel grunted a greeting to Bonehead, ignoring the cleaning of the blade, and then turned to listen to Scrap. That might be a good idea, him going out to get this...Blitz while the others stay here.

    "Alright, stay here with Dash. Guard him and the mare there. See if you can find any more volunters." Kestrel said looking out towards the no-pony land beyond the trenches. "What does Blitz look like?"

    Scraps nodded to Kes, his version of the plan seemed like it would probably work best. Trying to recall what Blitz looked like to answer Kes's question the best he could, he told Kes his best description of the unicorn buck.

    "Blitz is a bigger unicorn, white coat, I think blue mane, and guessing here simce I didn't get a good look at it, a football helmet for a mark."

    Once he had given the gryphon his best description, he turned to Dash and asked about the mare who lay crumpled by him.

    "How bad is it? Can we move her?"

    Ale trotted up to kestrel. "I'm coming with you." He announced. "I know what blitz looks like and can spot him out in all this." The unicorn gestured towards the chaos of the battlefield. "And i'm not about to let a single soldier, even if he is spec ops, run out there alone." Ale levitated a fresh clip into his rifle and chambered a round. "You need somepony to watch your flank out there."

    Sometime during this blood-bath of a battle, Blitz had gone to the fallen goop that was the metal-powered pony from earlier, with the can openers and taken the entire set of armour, managing to fit into it comfortably during a lull in the combat.

    And then Blitz' mentally self-imposed "Hero Mode" had him swinging his sword in wide arcs to keep Enclave ponies at enough of a distance for him to blast them in the face with his plasma rifle and then jump on them, brutally pummeling them with his power-hooves and taking the tags from them, making sure to remember the faces of every one he'd beaten.

    This "Hero-Mode" of his had made him more or less ignore the wounds he was suffering, even if they were lessened by the armour he was wearing at the time, he just didn't notice the cuts from the plasma stings. He'd just beat down a fourth Enclave Pony, graciously remembering their face and name. This one was a mare, light blue coat and a soft green mane, Gliding Faith was her name... Had it been a different situation, they could've been friends. Same for the others he'd felled..

    Howling Thunder, Light Stream, Wonder Whisp, Arctic Dawn and Fallen Moon. It was truly saddening when he thought about it, he could've made friends with all of these ponies, yet he'd had to fight against them and cause their deaths.

    Grunting and keeping his hooves moving, Blitz couldn't see any more Enclave... His body ached but he pushed on, now starting to fall back, if only to see if anypony else needed help, sluggishly walking due to his wounds.

    Ginger wouldn't be able to recognise the pony now that he was geared up in a full set of metal armour, but he'd end up recognizing Ginger if he ended up seeing him.

    Kestrel looked back at the unicorn for a moment before nodding and pulling himself up over the trench, and into the no pony's land beyond. Normally he might have complained a bit, but if the buck wanted to follow him, so be it.

    If he got killed it'd be his own damn fault.

    Once he was up over the edge he waited a second or so for Ale to get up with him, then it was a mad dash into the Frey, blade still at the ready if need be.

    "Find him fast, I'm not staying for long if he doesn't turn up." Kes ordered back to the kid charging out into the field eyes scanning for a buck matching the description of anypony that looked like what Scrap had described. Thus far, he'd not had any luck...but it was only the start of the search.

    Looking around Kes tried to guess where the stallion might be, aside from the chugging machine-gun lines, all he could see was black carapace and a few brave, or foolish, melee ponies out here. Most were totting enough heavy armor to weigh down even Kes, swinging and kicking like mad against the hoards.

    Kes turned towards the nearest one and started sprinting.

    If the pony named Blitz was one of these ponies, this was going to get hairy. But honestly what could one expect out of a pony with a name like that, in a place like this.

    War was never simple after all.

    Blitz was tired and of all the things he got to see now, it was a griffon charging at him at full speed.... What a day to be having, yet whilst he thought about this, he spotted Ginger just behind the griffon. Was he on their side? Cause he couldn't see any shots coming from Ginger.

    Fuck it, Blitz was going to chance it and just sat himself down with a very tired sigh and a loud thud. "Took your bloody time getting here, Ginger." He complained loudly. "What's going down then? Cause I think that ship is gonna be hitting us soon."

    Forcing himself onto his hooves again... This armour was taking a lot to get used to, Blitz grinned widely and waited to hear whatever was going to happen.

    Stallion Grad was a really, really troublesome place with this war still going, unfamiliar ponies dying or getting wounded to the point where they couldn't be saved... Cuppa could hardly tell the difference anymore.

    But she soon happened upon a bundle of ponies she recognised, one of which was on the floor, dying... Oh damnit, no pony should die for a war they're not meant to be in, especially not a pony who has been helping others, making sure that they can get back on their hooves and fight again.

    "Everypony stand back, give 'er some space t' breathe." Cuppa ordered as she rushed up, horn lighting up shakily as she attempted to cast a healing spell on Breeze, just for her horn to spark wildly and put itself out, a small burn mark on the tip of it. "No no no no no... Dun fail on me now!" She tried pleading to her horn, as if she could appease it with words as she tried again, more sparks and nothing once more.

    Cuppa's magic was failing her due to the extensive use it had gone through this entire time. How could she fail at using one measly spell right now? She knew Breeze had friends, and she was now failing to fix her because she'd been helping those who she knew nothing about. This was shameful. "Get 'er a health potion, dun jus' stand there!"

    Bone was finishing his looting, acquisition of gear from one of the mercs. As he slid the heavy combat barding off the pony something fell out of one of the pockets and into the mud. A small red vile. Health potion, not very strong, maybe enough to mend a paper cut. "Hey doc." bone said getting cuppa's attention. "Think fast." The griffin tossed the small vile to the medical mare. He'd seen the wounded pony fight, and saw the fire that burned within here. She had a warrior's spirit and she did not deserve to die like this, face down in the mud.
