Raziny moved her mecha near the Ravager, "providing backup". Already mission came not as it was intended for her, so she was confused and decided to leave thinking to somebody more prepared to it. If somebody really dangerous happens, she'll change her mood hopefully. But now she was simply standing near, doing absolutely nothing.

From the lack of response Asura realized his comms were out as well and kicked the interior of the mech. Turning to the main group he saw Faust motioning for them to regroup. As he approached the rest of the team he made a motion asking What now?

Kroenen treated his Engel to another colourful litany of curses as the sensors and comms died again. Suddenly, though, he stopped as he sensed Faust tense up - the Engel had spotted something. Focusing once again on his connection to the cyborg and its senses, he sought out what it was it had seen...

"There, a shimmer in the air."
"Stealth?"
"Bug?"
"Fire."

The chain of mental exchange took less than a second as combat instincts kicked in. Faust quickly raised up its plasma cannon and, pointing it towards the lake shore, fired off two snap shots at its perceived target, one slightly higher than the other.

Crackling ball of plasma struck what appeared shimmering air, and apparently struck well. Dragonfly that hid behind stealth systems and jammed your comms and sensors was revealed as it's stealth malfunctioned due to massive damage suffered. Seconds later, it's A-Pods followed, and the wretched thing fall heavily into the water, drowning whatever was inside.

Perhaps you would cheer up, if not for the fact that in a heartbeat, the entire surface of the lake literally exploded, showering you with the water, as three organic-looking mecha emerged from the depths. It appears that they were hiding, using both waters and ECM systems to hide from you.

Not any longer.

"Ohh, scheie," Kroenen muttered under his breath. Faust reacted quite quickly, and did what was only natural since it already had its plasma cannon pointed in the right direction. With just a nudge from Kroenen it let loose another shot, aimed at the lead Locust. "Weapons free, feuer frei!" he called out to the rest of his patrol.

The first shot was unexpected but not concerning; However the sudden commotion from the lake was. Turing to see who the opponent was, Asura found himself faced with three enemy Locusts emerging from the lake. Suddenly another shot fired overhead, striking the middle Locust in the head. Snapping out of his daze, Asura accelerated towards the leftmost locust.
  "Finally, Some excitement!" he muttered. At range he was a target, up close he was demon.

Due to Adolf's guesstimate over the presence of Migou ECM, he was only mildly surprised (if that) by the sudden appearance of the Migou Locusts. SOP for patrols was to have weapons armed, should they be needed, and so his laser cannon was already warmed up and ready to fire--all it needed was a target.

He paused long enough to center his targeting reticules on the leading Locust, and fired.

As soon as Raziny saw enemy, all her thoughts were completely wiped away. She was completely focused on the battle, only thing she knew now is current orders and her complete battle training. And orders, as she understand, were fire at will. So she did. A ray of pure energy targeted towards center Locust appeared from her mecha's gun.

The cannonade was successful. Under the hailstorm of energy weapon fire, central Locust first recoiled, only to get knocked down seconds later by Raziny's charge beam, following the lead of the dragonfly earlier.

Moment's later, two reaming migou mecha turned it's cannons at charging Asura. Two loud crackles were heard, as charge beams fired. Thankfully, they both whizzed harmlessly over the dodging machine.

"Spread out, flank them!" Kroenen ordered, Faust circling to the right while he drew a bead on the right-hand Locust, lining up a shot with his plasma cannon while the rocket pod acquired its target, four rockets priming for launch.

Keeping low to the ground, Asura sprinted forth in a zig-zag motion. Dodging the two plasma shots aimed at him by skin of his teeth, he barreled towards the leftmost Locust. With a small leap, he landed squarely on it's chest, sinking his Hyperedge Claws into it's torso.

Adolf crabbed to the left a bit, centering his target reticules on the rightward Locust this time before he fired again.

Just for the moment Raziny smiled. Another bug dead and killing shot is her. But then, she returned to combat orders. Rotating her mecha to the right and walking in that direction, she fired a 5 rocket salvo at the rightmost Locust.

Again, your fire was successful. Right Locust appeared to heavily damaged, and could not hit any of you with weapons, while the left one engaged Asura, without any luck.

Rocket barrage from Ahriman even managed to knock the Locust down. While it was still working and alive, it was obvious that only barely.

"Well done! Keep the pressure on them! Lightning, finish off the wounded one, Wolf, Ravage, focus attention on the last functional one," Kroenen ordered, setting his sights on the Locust that Asura was attacking. He wanted to make sure he didn't hit the smaller mecha, however, and took careful aim this time.
