Mrrshan scout tank enters the area. Recent aerial reconnaissance flight revealed increased Kolozar activity nearby and a land scouting mission was launched to confirm that.

The Kolozarian scouting party advances.
"Sir, why didn't we take some other form of transportation?" The robot queried to the officer.
"Because central couldn't spare one." The officer replied. "They're all allocated in a battle."

Ground under tank suddenly collapses.
"Hey, are you OK?"
"Yeah, but can't say so about our ride"
"Status report?"
"Well, engine seems to be OK, but threads an' stuff need to be checked."
"Fine. I'm checking weapons and will be on guard"
Tank commander peeks from the top hatch and looks around.

Hearing a crash, the robot in the group charges forward up the hill.
"What was tha-" The officer starts as the robot interrupts him.
"Unidentified object detected." Shielding its eye from the sun, it inspects the tank. "Optical scans suggest military vehicle."
"Oh... great. is it still operational?"
"Unknown. There appears to be a lifeform exiting it."

Tank driver leaves the vehicle to observe possible damage.
"Sir, it looks like we stuck here. There's an undergound cavern here and..."
But commander interrupts him:
"Shh, we got company!" - and whith these words he dives into the turret. After a moment, tank cannon elevates, aiming at thin figure on top of the hill.

"A military vehicle you say? There's no way they'd take one of those just to say hi."
The officer cocks his gun and fires a grenade out of it at the tank.

"Blast! The wind ruined my shot."
"It looks like you still hit them, sir."

Grenade explosion shatters tense silence of the place. Tank cannon releases a poorly aimed burst. Tank commander, while trying to correct his aim, activates the radio, but finds out that antenna was knocked out by the blast. The driver desperately tries to reach his hatch, shooting his SMG in general direction of the enemy.

A scouting party approaches the area loaded into an APC. The top hatch creaks open and one of the soldiers inside levels his weapon at the figures in the area around the lone tree. The heavy and slow truck kicks up blades of grass and exhaust as it rolls over the vegetation. Inside, the rest of the squad is readied for battle.

"Well, if you say s-" The officer is cut off by gunfire.
Two of the tank shells whizz past the tree but smacks into the leaves, exploding and igniting the tree. Two bullets fly past the soldiers but one grazes the officer's head, flying through his hat.
"I THOUGHT YOU SAID I HIT THEM!" The officer shouted at the robot.
"I did not say they were dead." The robot replied.
"Fine. Let's give them the kolozarian welcome boys!"
[Image: 6fnJsjP.png]
The soldiers leapt into the air, blasting blue energy from their feet. The officer pointed at the tank and the figure below. "FIRE!"

Below them, the robot appeared to be fabricating some small drones.

The driver manages to get into his place. Tank engine comes to life and whole vehicle darts back.

Small arms fire seems to be ineffective, but sudden movement brings tank directly into the spot where grenade lands, cutting unlucky antenna completely. This movement also ruines tank commander's efforts to gun down the enemy.

One of the three tank shells fly past as the other two smack right into the first soldier, incinerating him in the blast.
"CARL! NO!" The other soldier shouts. Angered, he blasts his rifle uselessly at the tank.
The officer fires another grenade and shouts to the robot. "HIT HIM WITH AN EMP!"
"Acknowledged." Switching its weapon's mode, The robot rushes forward with the three newly produced drones. It stops on a hill and aims at the tank. Moments later an electromagnetic explosion hits the tank turret.

The automatic pilot of the transport shifts into low gear after running into a thick patch of flowers. Impatiently, the lookout jumps off the top of the tank and begins firing bursts over the hill.

Electromagnetic pulse effectively knocks down all electronic equipment inside, causing already damaged engine to stop. Due to loss of pressure in the hydraulic system, autocannon loses its aim. Realizing that autocannon is now offline, tank commander pokes out of his hatch and prepares pintle mounted machinegun to fire.

[Image: DRzRn0K.png]
This move brings him under direct fire of enemy troopers, and he takes at least one hit, knocking him down.
With thir vehicle immobilized, its armament disabled and half of the personnel neutralized, odds for Mrrshans to win this engagement are going down like an anvil tossed out of the window.

The officer shouted upon seeing the tank turret fall.
"Good work lads! We hav- HRAGH"
[Image: 8yI06bx.png]
The officer was shot in the head and leg from enemy fire.

[Image: lPY4deC.png]
The robot bounds over to the hill. Upon spotting a flying target it quickly calculates the necessary aim and fires, hitting it square in the head.
The last soldier lets loose a burst at the flying figure and vehicle.

Finally, the drones begin scanning the tank for any survivors.

"Uh oh." The airborne drone keeps climbing, but without it's head and one eye, it probably won't stick a landing. Below, the rear hatch opens on the APC and the rest of the squad steps out. A missile crests over the hill passing the enemy robot within spitting distance. The hatch of the vehicle is peppered with returned fire and causes some minor damage to the launch tube and it's user. The rocket is semi-guided, but slow to turn and accelerate. It locks on to the soldier, but could have a hard time tracking if the target were to change position.

Two Large insectoid workers skitter and hover into the map from the left. One, hovering just behind the other, is carrying a vaguely luminescent oval egg-like sack, dripping some kind of ooze.

Seeing the rocket, The soldier swerves out of the way.
Unfortunately for him, the rocket adjusts its course and crashes into him, killing him instantly as it explodes.

Seeing its comrade die by the blast the remaining kolozarian robot aims its gun at the rocketeer. Setting it to emp blast, it pulls the trigger.
*click* *click* having used all of its gun's charges, the robot realized its death was inevitable. Quickly activating its comm link, it sent a distress message out to the main base.

The drones, having concluded their scans of the tank, believe the threat is gone.
They begin flying towards the explosion.

The soft ground collapses under the transport, rendering it totally immobile. Now dismounted, it's occupants charge at the Kolozarian who shot their counterpart in the head. They hold their fire but motion for it to drop the gun and surrender.

The workers advance. The egg-carrying one is slowed considerably due to the cargo it's carrying, which seems to be leaving a pretty thick trail of goop behind it.

The unburdened worker springs ahead, searching the cavern around it.

The robot drops its useless weapon and extends its hands forward, dropping the outermost of its two fingers, it points the front of its innermost fingers at the two enemy robots.

The drones, seeing the remaining kolozarian robot drop its weapon, head underground.

*The dropship arrives on my next turn.*

"You have been liberated from your vile organic masters, please do not shut down or restart while receiving this mandatory software update. You may perceive a slight tingle, all is well."
The blood soaked droid faces the prisoner, displaying a rapidly flashing set of codes and diagrams as it attempts to hack into it's loyalty settings. The rest of the squad bounds forward and the rocket soldier reloads it's weapon. The headless soldier removes the broken part and waits for repair. Sparks fly from disconnected wires and melting circuitry out of the top of it's main chassis. The missile launcher has also sustained damage from shrapnel and ricochets, decreasing the weapon's accuracy and effective range. With enemy armor just over the hill, it's wielder prepares to fire anyway but hesitates upon seeing the dead crewman slouched over the machine gun.

One of the workers settles ahead of the other and begins to signal with it's wings. The other hones in for the location.

The worker carrying the egg drops it gently in the ground, and sits upon it to incubate. The goop begins to dig into the ground like roots.

The second worker scouts ahead.

The codes crack down on the kolozarian robot's loyalty settings, setting the other robots from enemy to friend. The robot's arms fall limp and a few moments pass. Its eye opens, now shining a familiar color. "Thank you for liberating me from the vile organics. How can I be of service?" Before the robots can respond, a voice comes in from the robot's comm. "Kolozarian Unit-4559, What the heck is going on down there, and why is there blood everywhere?!?" The Dropship has arrived.

Underground, the drones continue flying. Hearing a strange buzzing noise, they move to investigate.
