“Target is 25 degrees right and 10 meters closer, Shotgun. Watch your right, that far sentry’s gonna clear the smoke soon.” Giotto risks a peek around the wall, hoping to catch the circling sentry with their back to him.

"Tanks for the tip," grunts Axminster, setting his rifle to what he is pretty sure would be the right angle for a drop shot. He sends the round away and seeks cover, scanning for the guard he wants to do violence to.

Axminster lobs a perfect grenade shot into the smoke, shredding the tent and the tank crew alike. There is a flurry of shots in the heart of the action, Theo missing and San taking the tank commander with a hypersonic round through the torso. If continues her advance, and in a raw display of coordination, reflexes and psychic talent, catches a line of incoming laser fire just so, sending it scything back across the area and burning through the shooter's vulnerable throat as it traverses the scene. It happens so fast it could almost be missed, save for the soldier crumpling onto the ground.

The spy has disappeared into the APC. After a few moments, the turret suddenly turns and a deafening hail of machine gun fire is unleashed down one side of the camp. Giotto, watching from above via the drone, can see a guard and most of the techs collapse, riddled with bullets. He can also see the surviving tank crew seeing this, and sees them gesture to the APC as they open the hatch to their tank.

Despite the chaos and the destruction, the smoke from Axminster's grenade is starting to clear, revealing the mangled center of the camp.

"Damn! Crew at the center tank! Light 'em up or we're jacked!" Giotto slings the drone console and scrambles up to a nearby waste bin, firing a shot in the direction of the nearest guard, more in an attempt to distract them than to actually take them out.

Sangodele fires off at the tank crew. His rifle cracks as he tries to stop them. He walks steadily as he fires to get closer to the tank. He wants to be in a position to hide from its guns or take control of the armor.

If doesn't need precog to warn: "Call for backup."

With the guard on overwatch dead in what briefly registers as a moment of grace, she exits her focus stance and draws the free satchel charge from her bandolier. Her TK sends it flying toward the open-hatch tank. She'd rather the crew be taken out, but if someone makes it inside alive, she'll dunk it through the hatch and detonate.

Axminster watches the guard crumple from If's psychic reality bending and shudders a little. He pelts toward the direction of the to-be-manned tank and sets his laser to autofire.

There's a flurry of bullets, lasers and explosives as the fight reaches its climax. Theo finally connects with a guard, burning him to a charred corpse. San connects with the tank driver as he climbs towards the hatch, killing him with a hypersonic round. The gunner flinches away as he climbs up the tank, throwing himself to the ground to take cover from the shots. If is ready and hooks her satchel charge around the tank at an impossible angle before the charge detonates, taking the gunner with it. Giotto and Axminster lay down a barrage of fire that claims the final guard, and the spy rakes the camp again with machine gun fire, dropping the final enemy soldier in a hail of bullets.

The camp and the tanks sit empty now, suddenly and violently deprived of their crews. One tank, caught by small arms fire and an explosive, shows light damage, but all are operable. Of course, the light and noise of lasers, plasma, bullets and explosives, not to mention the fire and smoke, mean that the team won't be left alone for long. There could be a relief force advancing at any moment.

Giotto holsters his pistol, and takes active control of the spotter drone. He taps quickly at the pad, sending the drone just over the nearby roofs. "The cams are good to about 2 k, so we should see their hitback pack with some time to spare. Now, who wants to see me learn how to drive a tank?" He starts trotting through the wreckage of the camp, giving the tanks an appraising eye.

Sangodele cannot drive it but he offers, "Let me try the main gun. Once we get some distance, let's try to keep those other vehicles from being operable."

He waves the spy over.
