Onyx, grey and barren with scattered patches of ancient machinery at work repairing the planet, was covered in a grey cloud. The Longsword carrying the Freelancers had attracted the Onyx Sentinels, which had opened fire. Illinois' surprisingly evasive flying was the only thing keeping them from being shot down by the flying Sentinels. Inside, the Freelancers waited until they were over the drop zone before they could jump in their ZONE Suits. The craft shuddered as a shot from the Sentinels made contact with the wing.

Illinois struggled to maintain control of the longsword.

Illinois shouted into his comm

"We're hit! I can't keep control of her much longer! get ready to jump on my count!"

//What?!//

Mex moves to go to the cockpit, but another explosion shakes the craft and he grabs onto a rail.

//You'll kill yourself!//

Mex smiled quickly, before turning to the other Freelancers and motioning to the door.

Geo moved quickly to detatch the underslung cargo carrier under the plane. He pulled the safety lock off and released the latch. The container fell away toward the ground. He stood and fell in line behind the others.

Meanwhile, over in the Recon-ship: Utah cursed as he saw the sentinels intercept Bird One onscreen. With a sigh buckled himself in as the ship brought itself into an orbiting position for now. He adjusted the additional communications equipment about him as he waited for the Freelancers to hit surface and establish contact.

Tally continued lurking in the craft she had been assigned, waiting for the order to jump...

//3!//

Illinois slammed the door release and watched the freelancer disappeared one by one.

//Give 'em hell for me//

Illinois aimed the longsword at a large group of Sentinels and opened what remaining boosters he had.

//GERONIMOOOO!//

There was multiple small blue explosions before the group was promptly engulfed in a larger orange explosion.

Mex was in freefall as the explosion lit up the grey fog, and promptly dissipated. Shrapnel and metal fell, as he approached the ground.

Tally remained silent, for the moment, seemingly like she was just 'going through the motions'. She drifted past Mex noiselessly, raising her rifle and beginning to sight targets in a projected landing zone.

The suits slammed into the ground. Mex's vision went dark for a moment, before his hearing and sight slowly returned.

//Sound off.//

Utah sighed as he observed the explosion on his screen. He checks the registration for unit signals of any of the Agents.

Tally hit the ground a little more gracefully, rolling with the impact to bleed off the force that shut down Mex' suit.

'I'm doing alright, but I think we're going to be finding bits of Illinois for a while.'

Germany landed hard, but thanks to the suit, that was the normal thing to do. He slowly stood up completely, looking around before looking back at the explosion.

"Germany's all good..."

Nebraska landed nearby falling before standing up and looked at the still falling debris of the longsword.

"Rest well buddy"

//Nebraska's good//

//Command this is Bird Two. The eggs have left the nest, Bird One is down. I repeat - The eggs have left the nest, Bird One is down. Over.//

Utah looks at the mission scripting

//What a load of BS...//

Geo was last out and fell without a suit so his terminal velocity was slower. He overcharged his shields and the gel layer of his armor to cushion the impact. He still hit hard and cratered himself slightly.
He called sorely over the comms, "Georgia has splashed down." He waited a few moments before trying to move. Everything hurt, and it took a few moments for the medical injectors to cycle.

"Arkansas is still kicking"

He took his hands off the controls and flexed his shoulders. He turned around and looked back at the wreckage of the Longsword, and then turned away.

'Patrols? You mean the things I shot on the way down?' Tally said, looking over her shoulder, her mask concealing a mischievous grin. 'Which way should we go?'

//No, Patrols as in the things coming to check on the things you killed.//

Mex motioned towards the horizon, where a faint blue light was penetrating the fog.

'That's not a patrol, that's a search party,' she said, grinning again. 'Now pick a direction, or I'm heading... THAT way,' she said, after closing her eyes and pointing the barrel of her rifle somewhere. As it happened, that rifle was pointing just to the southeast of that blue light.

'... Right, then,' Tally said, hoisting herself off of the ground, beginning to move towards the direction she had previously indicated.

'You lot head on, I'll see if I can provide cover from a suitable distance.'
