Unification War (17 BBY)

Post by Red Dragon » Tue Jan 17, 2012 7:59 pm

The fighting had started merely a few months after the Invasion. Chris couldn't believe that yet another war had started over Kadian, but in retrospect it was to be expected. The all encompassing Kadian Federation was all but gone. Other factions were too but those that remained now wanted to fill the void. It was a war for ideals, greed and control. Chris wished she didn't have anything to do with it. But that would have been irresponsible for her. She had recently joined Adrev Shorapka in a project that would make her a kind of super solider to combat future alien invasions. She and a hand full of others had been testing their new abilities and vehicles that would help them full fill their future role.

Despite Adrev Shorapka being neutral during all this, his Shorapka pilots wouldn't or couldn't remain so. They had been survivors of of the Invasion, like Chris. But were from various other factions from before the invasion. Those who's factions remained felt an obligation to return to them with their new found strength to aid them. Others who lost everything would pick a cause they believed in and joined them. Chris and a few others remained with Adrev. But they wouldn't be allowed to remain nuetral for long.

Chris and the others designed and tested many prototypes of vehicles, but none could fill in a role that encompassed EVERYTHING, that is until Chris haphazardly proposed something with a humanoid form. Adrev approved and they set to work. The ending result was exactly what they were looking for, though further development was needed. As the war went on around them the first few ExoShells were created, Chris's "Alex" being one of them. Shortly after they were built was when the war was brought to their foot steps.

I side had to be chosen at some point, but not every one thought it would have been forced on those left at Adrev Shorapka's labs. Chris awoke to alert sirens, barely dressed she ran from her rooms to the hanger. There was already a fire fight there, some one had betrayed them. A bullet rang by her, she instinctively dropped to the ground. Be mostly bare body touching the cold steel floor sent chills everywhere. To her left was one of the hanger workers, dead but still clutched in his hand was his rifle. She army crawled over and picked up the weapon, checking its status. Its safely was still on, this man never managed to get a shot off. Down on the main deck yelling and the sound of combat continued. She switch the weapon to semi and primed the weapon.

She felt it before she saw it, some one that was coming toward her, meant her harm. She brought the rifle around in time as a enemy solider came up a stair way. Chris squeezed off three rounds, all struck the solider, in the stomach, chest and finally the head. His body armor did little to protect him from such close range. Another came, he clearly thought he was ready for Chris, seeing his comrade killed in front of him. Didn't expect a nude women though, he paused and she fired.

Another down, she was up heading the way they came, taking shots at the hostiles every chance she got. She was deadly with each shot, so much so that they were starting to take a greater interest in the nude female that was systematically wiping them out. Chris's danger sense grew more alarming, its told her when to stop, jump, drop and fire. It was a dance of death and she was the devil. The pressure off her allies they started to press their own attacks, hoping to push the enemy out of the hanger. Thanks to Chris they had an advantage for a moment, but it was crushed as more and more enemy troops showed up.

Chris's rifle was spent, but she made it to her destination. Alex waited, its cockpit opening knowing its master had arrived. A bullet grazed Chris's arm, nothing she couldn't handle, not after what she had just been through. She jumped into Alex the hatch closing behind her. In her Shorapka she was safe from the enemy troops, but her friends weren't. The Hanger needed to be secured, a task getting more and more difficult as time went by.

The hangers air grew heavy, the humming of Alex's reactor coming online vibrated loose tools and other objects. With nothing better to do the enemy all pointed their weapons at Alex and fired uselessly. Chris finished the start up sequence, systems came online rapidly. Alex's "eyes" flared to life, causing a number of the hostiles to flee, others continued to fire. Alex awoke, its stiff form loosening and moving. Chris plugged herself into the giant vehicle and in an instant saw with Alex's eyes as well as her own. Alex responded to Chris's thoughts as well as her own body would. She looked down at the enemy as she took a step out of Alex's dock and rained hell down on them in the fore of 60mm shells.

Oh they ran, there was nothing they could do to stop Alex. Their mission had failed, the Zion's troops retreated outside of the hanger for now. Zion was a major player in all the fighting. They "represented" the space colonies that had suffered the most during the CIS invasion. But instead of helping them rebuild they go to war for control over the planet. They are cruel and have been known to attack other space colonies that don't share their vision. They are one of the primary reasons why there was a war now. Their mission here was to capture Adrev Shorapka, his facilities and new vehicles to help fuel their war effort, but another player had joined the battle.

Enix was one of the smaller groups during this civil war, one that did most of its fighting on the political stage then on the front line. As such their military was small, but was made up mostly of Federation veterans from the Invasion. Their intentions is the development and protection of a single government that can stand up properly to other galactic forces that may see them as a target. Enix would be the core building block that would become the Systems Alliance. Their intentions were made clear the moment they showed up, to aid Adrev Shorapka's forces and fight off Zion.

Adrev Shorapka's facilities were located on the outskirts of Von Braun on Luna and although small, was still part of the mega city. Ships from both factions started a battle a fare distance away from the surface but still a danger to the city. With the Hanger cleared for the moment the techs mechanics and Adrev's troops went to work fortifying their positions and clearing out the dead. Chris spoke through Alex, "I need a report on whats going on! Top off Alex with fuel and ammo and prepare my external weapon systems." She looked down at her self realizing for the first time that she was cold and saw she was still wearing her sleep wear. "I need a pilot suit as well!"

Up to date, fully dressed and with Alex fully armed Chris surveyed the damage that was done so far. She linked Alex to the facilities camera network. The fighting had been pushed back beyond the perimeter, but Zion's forces were gathering up for another push. That was a problem, while the Enix forces were fighting Zion in space that kept them from sending more forces, but Enix couldn't send any either to reinforce Adrev's battered forces. While they did have Alex and other Shorapka vehicles, they were little use if the enemy got into the buildings.

"We got a problem Chris..." David warned when his face popped up in a small window on Chris's screen. He was another Shorapka pilot, though he still still used a tank Shorapka vehicle. He wasn't very savvy as a tech or a mechanic and had to rely on what was developed by others. As it stood there were only three humanoid Shorapka vehicles, Alex being one of them.

"What is it?" Chris looked around, Alex's head following her movements, searching for what David was talking about. "Report should be coming to us soon but i been listening in on the comm chatter from the Enix fleet. There support for us was suppose to be a surprise to the Zion, and at least to the forces that are attacking us it was. But they were followed by another Zion Fleet..." Chris voice was high with tension and a little fear. "They aren't retreating are they?!" David shook his head. "They aren't abandoning us, but they need to fall back and regroup. Zion forces are on there way do... ARGGG!"

David's tank exploded, Then another. Shorapka after Shorapka. Chris got Alex's shield up it time to deflect a strike on her. "What the hell?" Keith, another Shorapka pilot, started laughing menacingly. His face popped up on Chris's screen. He had a sadistic grin. "Did you see his face? Never knew it was coming! Such a pitiful excuse for a super soldier!" Chris gritted her teeth, she maneuvered Alex to cover and more shots rained down on her location. "You did that Keith?! Why?!" He laughed again. "You really need to ask? I been with Zion from the beginning. When i survived the operation i was given the task to wait until Shorapka developed his ultimate weapon for his ultimate soldiers. And here we are... You and me are sitting in those weapons."

Keith had designed his own humanoid Shorapka vehicle he called the Zudah, it was just as impressive as Chris's Alex, but had a completely different look to it and sported more armor. Alex moved in time to avoid more fire. A warning tone went off and a window popped up showing Zion fighters and landing craft coming in. Chris made out the shape of early Shorapka fighters mixed in with the bunch. They would be some of the ones the left earlier when the war first started. Keith continued his rant, "And now Zion will use these weapons and us as we were intended to be used. To bring security to Kadian under the rule of glorious Zion!" Chris got shook around as an explosion caused Alex to stumble forward. "We will see about that won't we?!"

Chris fully connected with Alex and got on the move. Alex turned a corner, she quickly looked around and saw the Zudah in time to see it fire at her. Alex used it's shield to swat away the shell, an impressive feat that jaw dropped Keith. "Your so great! You really should join us!" Alex came around the bend ducking as another of the Zudah's rounds flew by over head. "Not in this life time Keith!" Alex stood strait up again looking at the Zudah as it got close. It raised its machine gun and open fired with it and the Vulcan guns mounted in Alex's head. Zudah abandoned its Assault Cannon, leaping up and using its boosters to clear Alex's incoming fire. But instead of backing off Keith pushed Zudah forward and rammed Alex with a shoulder tackle. The clash of the titans began!

Alex was slammed backward and would have completely fallen over from the blow if she didn't crash into a building. Chris recovered fast enough to spin to the left to avoid getting tackled again. The Judah rammed shoulder first into the building where Alex once was, Chris countered by swinging back and smashing into Keith's unit with her shield. Alex smacked him twice before moving to bring its rifle to bare on his back. Before she could finish him off an alarm went off and Chris brought Alex's shield around in time to intercept two missiles from a Shorapka fighter craft.

As it went by Alex fired its Vulcan guns striking the craft across its belly. Smoke and flame erupted from it and it angled to crash. Chris wouldn't see the crash as her attention went back to the Judah, which was now free from the building and pulling out its own rifle. "Chris! Your making this hard on your self! Just give up and I'll make sure your treated... well." Chris didn't bother answering him. They both started to fired their rifles at each other as they both ran for cover. Alex had the upper had with its shield, as even now Chris held the shield up to absorb any hits as she ran for cover shooting back. But the Judah was a sturdy machine and any hits it took, it shrugged off mostly.

Both behemoths reached cover, Alex changed out a magazine for its weapon. That's when Chris became aware of all the fighting around Adrev's facilities. She fired a few rounds into a hostile tank destroying it. She then peeked around the building she was taking cover with hoping to get a look at the Judah. Both were surprised to be face to face, the Judah took a step back while Alex brought its rifle level with him and fired. The Judah dropped its rifle and raised both its arms to guard from the attack, the shells from Alex bouncing off or digging into the armor. Then suddenly the Judah reached out and smacked Alex's rifle to the side. Then drew back with its other arm and punched Alex square where the cockpit hatch was, nearly crushed it in and causing a great deal of damage to the torso. Chris's vision darkened, her body threatening to black out from the shock of the blow, but she willed her way through it.

Alex lifted its shield horizontally, drew back and slammed the edge of it into the extended arm of the Judah. The arm fell uselessly to the Judah's side and it stepped back. Alex drew back the shield again then slammed it into the Judah's head, sheering it off at the neck and sending it flying. "Goodby Keith..." Alex again leveled its rifle and fired, Keith tried to defend again like before, raising its functioning arm up. But it was to no avail, Alex unloaded nearly a full magazine into Keith's Judah. When Alex finished firing the Judah was a wreak, the cockpit was gone along with Keith, shot to shit. Alex's warning went off and Chris used her boosters to quickly back away from the Judah just as it exploded. Luckily the reactor didn't go critical, if it did it would have been like a nuclear bomb going off.

"You bitch! You killed him!" Chris's danger sense kicked in and managed to maneuver Alex out from an incoming attack. Mara, the woman that now was attacking Chris, had been in love with Kieth for a while. She is also the pilot of the third humanoid Shorapka vehicle. It wasn't even named nor was it completed but it seemed Mara didn't care. "Are you with the Zion too Mara?!" Alex took giant steps and used its boosters to circle around behind a building. "I'm with Kieth! Were ever he goes I go!"

"You poor delusional woman, He never showed any form of interest in you! Why bother seeking revenge for someone that didn't care about you?!" Mara's unfinished machine walked over to the flaming wreak that was the Judah. "You just don't under stand! We were meant for each other!" Mara turned her machine around and fired off the pair of cannons mounted on its shoulders. If it were finished the unit would have been an artillery piece, though with the shoulder cannons it had it still was a danger to the Alex.

The building shuttered from the shock of the blast, flame and shrapnel blew out from the windows around Alex, making Chris loose vision for the moment. It was too quite after the attack, surly Mara meant to continue her attack. Chris waited in Alex, ready for anything. But no other attacks came. She finally took a chance to take a peek, Mara was gone, and so was portions of the Judah, particularly the chest. Chris couldn't even guess why Mara would take that. Looking around the fighting seemed to be slowing down. Enix seemed to managed to get some of their own forces down on the lunar surface, the cities own defenders also finally took an interest in fighting off the Zion.

"Chris, Adrev control, come on in for repairs and refitting. The Enix fleet could really use some help." Chris looked up, as did Alex, and zoomed in on the battle not too far off. Enix were sorely out numbered, how they manage to get any forces on the surface was a miracle in its self. "On my way."

The battle in space was soon joined by another faction that had decided to ally its self with Enix. It seemed back on Kadian a impressive speech from the leader of Enix had swayed a large number of people to their side. Chris wasn't much for politics so she wasn't very interested in what happened there, only the results.

She had taken the time to take a quick shower and get into a fresh normal suit. She was shoving food in her mouth went she walked into the hanger by where her Alex was. Her machine was repaired and seemed to have a few added parts to it. "What you do to him?" She asked after swallowing the food, walking up to the head tech. He looked at her, "The data you got from fighting Kieth was very impressive, showed a few flaws in the system and structure as well. So we did some field work on it to improve Alex till a more permanent fix can be worked out." He looked back at the massive machine. "We also used that data to work out a system that should improve your mobility in space." Chris nodded, looking up at Alex as well. "Get him out fitted with as many heavy weapons he can carry... Its time to put the hurt on those Zion." The tech looked at her, smiled and nodded, "You got it ma'am!"

Some time later a massive door leading out to the outside surface of Luna started it open, its warning lights flashing and atmosphere blowing out. There stood Alex, a Rocket launcher on one hand and a hyper bazooka in the other. Mounted on its lower back was another hyper bazooka and a 90 mm machine gun. Under the shield was strapped four large missiles and extra magazines for the bazooka's and machine gun. The moment the doors opened fully Alex stepped out and looked up at the space battle.

"Such a waste of life! You would think we would be unified against another invasion!" Chris thought out loud.

"Well, I'm sure we are, its just some one has to be in charge... and well everyone thinks they are best suited." Another Shorapka pilot stated. She was in a Shorapka heavy fighter, best suited for anti capital ship combat.

"Yeah well, Zion sure doesn't have my vote."

"Nor mine... Lets go make sure they know that shall we?"

Chris sneered. "Yeah... Lets. Chris Founder, Alex, Launching!"

Alex's boosters ignited and despite its vast weight its lifted off the surface of Luna and left the weak gravity behind. With nothing holding her back Chris blasted off toward the enemy.

The frame of her Exoshell rattled as Chris throttled up past the safety limits. Despite the red lining it held together and continued to increase in speed. If anything this was the ultimate test for the new shorapka. As she got closer to the battle enemy anti air fire started to rain down around her. With out losing forward momentum she spun Alex around the enemy fire twirling with the movement. The cameras shook from the high speed maneuvering, but the moment the computer chirped a lock on she let loose with a flurry of rockets. She passed by the targeted enemy ship just as the rockets struck it along the side. The destruction brought on by the rockets caused a chain reaction which would cause the ship to blossom into a fire ball.

Chris, paying no heed to the destruction of the Zion ship continued on, discarding the spent rocket launcher she pulls out the other bazooka. A number of Zion fighters moved in to attack her, she easily dodged their missile and gun fire, other then that ignored them as she targeted another Zion ship. The maneuvers she had to make to dodge the enemy fighters force her into a collision course of the enemy ship, nothing her Alex couldn't handle. Chris reoriented Alex legs first and fired her thrusters. Alex basically smashed a cannon when it landed on the ship, A quick burst of its thrusters and it lifted away from the ship. Chris pointed the two bazookas down at the destroyed cannon and fired. The Zion's shells for the cannon blew up with Chris's shots nearly blowing the ship in two. Alex rocketed away at high speed heading for a pair of light cruisers that were the escorts for the ship she just destroyed.

Alex gracefully dodged the incoming anti air fire, then stopped with a near impossible suddenness between the two ships aiming the two bazookas at the bridges of the ships. Both bridges were destroyed and with another each into their engine sections, both ships were utterly destroyed. Between the two balls of flame Alex just created, it turned to face the rest of the Zion Fleet. Chris was shocked to look at the operation clock and saw that barely a minuet passed. A smirk crossed her face as she looked out at the rest of the Zion fleet, she could feel the panic emanating off the Zion forces.
