IAF071 Planetary Militia 3rd Squad released!

The once shining tower block that contained the headquarters of Maudlin in down town Pelcan City had seen better days.  Days when Camarthen Prime had been a planet with a promising future and a small archaeological dig into possible alien ruins had held little interest for the population at large.  Sergeant Jack Fallon wish for those simpler times to return once more as he gazed out of a shattered golglass panel on this eight floor of the block.  Below he could see smashed vehicles and dead bodies laying like litter on the no longer pristine rubbacrete boulevard.  Fallon could also see movement among the debris and corpses.  Movement that was coming towards the burned out entrance way to the block.  Several groups of verminous aliens which they had come to call 'Maligs'.  Green skinned and vicious they were scouring every building as further down the boulevard a column of other larger red uniformed aliens advanced.  The sergeant spat out of the broken window and turned to his squad who were in the room behind him.

“Looks like were gonna have company soon.  Maligs coming up the stairwells in thirty seconds.  Traps not gonna spring for us.  We will have to fight our way out onto the roof and comm for evac.”

Almost as one the other nine soldiers of the squad nodded in agreement and readied their weapons.  They had been awaiting the opportunity to  detonate a hidden Koloa Type 4 mine that was inside a wreaked grav skimmer further up the boulevard that would have decimated the column of aliens.  But that was going to be wasted now as ordered to preserve their lives over rode killing the foe.   A quick fire fight with the Maligs and then up to the roof.  Perhaps the Koloa could be detonated as they were lifted off.

With a practised ease Fallon hefted his Urgan 13 Combat Shotgun.  Issued only to planetary defence forces the shotgun was meant for raw recruits and for those in pacification roles but the sergeant adored the weapon and had refused the Moth Type 6 Rifle offered to him by command.  The Urgan 13 could fire a variety of loads from a blast round that scattered lethal pellets to an armour piercing solid round and a non-lethal gas round. Not much call for crowd control these days and almost all of his carried rounds were 18mm solids that had no spread but would turn a Malig into meat paste.  The squad moved towards the door as the sound of running foot steps approached from below.
