Adder Combat Lifters five variants now released!

“Walker press the stud and get the engine turning over.  Give her five seconds and then get the blades moving.  I want to be on cushion thirty from now and motive power in thirty five.”

It was a tall order for Private Hinde Walker as Adder 467 Abigail One was currently sat on its flat hover bed in the midst of a snow flurry on a gentle slope outside of Carvel City.  In such temperatures getting to a green across the line active status in half a minute was going to be a challenge.  The compartment was cold to begin with and as the other three vehicles around them began their own start up sequences Walker ignored the breath that fogged in front of him and set to work.

“This is Abigail One to all vehicles.  We will be heading up the slope and then down the reverse to support the infantry advance upon the city.  Regimental Command has informed me that the generators of Carvel's Hurwent Shield will be going offline in about ten minutes time.  A mechanical failure as a result of a little explosion courtesy of our friends in the Retained of the 53rd.  Once its down we glide on in and ask them really politely to put down their weapons and the city is ours.  Easy.  Well, we will see.”

Private Walker listened to his Adder commander speak over the platoon channel and thought to himself that it would be great if it were that easy.  They had already lost Abigail Three to a Canlastrian anvil round and with it their only long range hitting power.  Without the twin 60mm missile pods that Three had carried they would have to rely upon the two rotary cannons and Abigail One's own grenade launcher from the rest of the platoon.  Walker hoped that command was right and opposition was light.  Adders could deal with infantry and battlesuits but bigger armoured foes like the Mullo were a whole other matter.

With a feeling of slight queasy motion under his feet Walker knew the skirts were now full and motive power was available.  He checked for green lights across his display and seeing them clicked the vehicle channel to let the commander know he was able to move out.  Seconds to spare.  Not bad at all. 

“Come on Four get moving.  Time for the off.  It's not that cold.  Follow us when your ready eh.”
