IB52 Muster Female Squad released!

“Watch that doorway! Move up, move up.”

The fire-team of four Muster troopers of the 71st Regiment dashed from cover to cover keeping their heads down as they ran. Speed was of the essence now. They knew that only one Canlastrian Retained Knight had survived the impact of local artillery rounds called down on them but one was enough. Against the Aketon armour of the Muster the armour piercing 12.5mm rounds of a Retained's Angis Rifle were lethal while their own rifles had to be up real close to ensure a quick kill. But the fire-team had the edge in numbers and they knew where the 'Cannie' was. Or at least they thought they did. The Comm Net was down and EMP bursts had scrambled their integral sensors. They had all removed their helmets judging that the loss of protection would be worth the quicker reactions.

“Right ahead. Be ready. Fire upon sight”

Inside the ruined building to their front a shadow moved and the already raised Moth Type 6 Rifles of the fire-team sprayed out 9mm caseless rounds in its direction. Their were sparks and wild ricochet impacts around and against the shadow which paced forward and resolved into the blue form of a Canlastrian Retained. The chameleon circuit in the knight's armour was malfunctioning as small parts of armour shimmered and reappeared. The Muster knew what was coming next and broke in two directions as 12.5mm rounds hammered back at them. One of the Muster was caught in the burst and fell screaming at the loss of a leg. The other three focused their fire on the knight. Alwite powered armour is tough but its not invulnerable by any means and in a spray of blood the Cannie toppled backwards to the rubble strewn floor the remaining shells in the Angis Rifle soaring skyward from a finger in a trigger death grip.

“Target down. Get a working line and get a medic for Lorian. Where's the nearest spire. We need more bloody 9mm after that!”
