wrote: Kilkire The Battle for the Levantine Sea While at first the situation on the seas is rapidly turning towards a crushing Kilkirian victory, what with the Levantine air force almost entirely being within easy picking range, and the Sword Fleet effectively walking into the Interiorem Fleet's shells. While a few subs manage to slip past the endless barrages of depth-charges and torpedoes enabling them to cause serious damage to some of the larger ships. With the Kilkirian air force securing air superiority in the skies, and the Interiorem Fleet continuing to gun down the Sword Fleet, things seemed under control. However this all changes when the Hammer fleet enters.
The Kilkirian fleet was almost caught completely by surprise, with only the Super-Carrier and a few other ships having a few second's warning before the wave of enemy fighters attacked. The attack on the flank had the intended effect, and most all the ships were caught off guard. The five carrier's defense fleets were able to quickly regroup in order to protect the floating airfields. However, this was not met with total success, as the ships were focused on the Hammer fleet, a successful kamikaze attack slammed right through the deck of a carrier, and went right into the munitions. The explosion tore through some of the smaller surrounding ships, effectively taking that entire mini-fleet out of operation. The ships began retreating away from the Hammer fleet, many ships even holding formation thanks to the brilliant and quick command of the renowned Kilkirian Admiral, John Barry. The air force quickly turned around to the new threat, and faced the remaining Hammer fleet pilots in long and brutal dogfights. While the Supercarrier retreated to a safe distance to be able to continue the fight unless any other carriers were taken out of operation. With most of the Sword fleet now at the bottom of the ocean, it was assumed the remaining ships could no longer put up an adequate fight. This however, was the fatal mistake of the Royal Navy. While retreating towards the Sword fleet, a Levantine submarine smashed into the lower decks of a carrier, narrowly missing the munitions, but incapacitating the vessel and later causing it to capsize none the less.
The Embassy With the helicopters having missiles homed in on them, desperate measures were taken to try and save the diplomats. Four SWAT men, two on each copper, wearing parachutes were able to save the closest people to them. Both the helicopters exploded, killing almost everyone, with even one of the SWAT men with a parachute having been killed. They desperately jumped from the copters, and deployed the chutes. When they touched the ground again, only 3 SWAT men, 3 diplomats, and 1 soldier survived. They landed near a tiny town, where they quickly occupied an empty market. They retreated back as far as they could, and could only pray they would be able to survive long enough to get home. I feel like I should wait for the Levantine response.
Also, do you wish for me to deploy TIB operatives to rescue your men and scatter the embassy siege?
