Location: Training Simulators
Synopsis: Jazz, Impactor, and Skyshredder do a training mission of an old Wreckers assault on a space station.
Cast of Characters: Jazz, Impactor, Skyshredder


Impactor has posed:
Impactor is currently over in the training simulator. Currently there is a large wall up in front of him. Impactor is working at battering it down. In the literal sense. His fist going to slam into it again and again. Going to smash hard and roughly to it, leaving increasingly big craters wihtin as he would continue to try and brutalize it, even as his fist was looking as crushed as the wall.

Jazz has posed:
Jazz stalks into the room and upon entering he pauses hard in his steps giving Impactor a long hard look. He heads over to the controls to see what the program is that he is running.

"What do you call this program Impactor?" he croses his arms and turnings towards the program leavs back.

Impactor has posed:
Impactor grunts, "Giving it an impact." Apparently the Autobot does have a bit of a sense of humor. "I'm trying to work on something a bit more involved than our usual fight sparring with one another that all you around here seem to prefer." The simulation ends.

"If you'd like to try something more Wrecker oriented than the playtime you Bots do here."

Jazz has posed:
Jazz shrugs, "Sure."

Not being phased at all."

"Let's see what you guys do at there in those harsh conditions."

Impactor has posed:
Impactor smirks, "Lovely." Then he goes to punch in some commands. The simulation goes over to what looks like a heavily fortified bunker in a volcanic planet. "This is Omnicron VII. The planet was a big asteroid that had a volcanic crust long ago. The Cons had setup a base in it and used it for refueling. Very heavy space defenses so we couldn't fly an assault shuttle in to land. So we went in by going in an escape pod and being launched by a magnetic accelerator."

Jazz has posed:
Jazz dusts his should off and says, "Looks Like Fun," he optics quickly give an overlay of the terrain.

"Lots of resources here for this rock huh?" he notes.

Impactor has posed:
Impactor shakes his head, "None in the slightest beyond it being in a good position for some of their warships to go on to pick up energon through and hardened enough to make it resistant to bombardment. The operation was being grav slammed into it and fighting our way through to hit the generator and blow it."

Jazz has posed:
"I meant the Cons," Jazz replies.

"OK Impactor. Where do we start?"

Impactor has posed:
Impactor smirks, "Garrison was about fourty. Not including techs and support personnel. And place was on alert so that included the internal defenses and them on lockdown." Impactor goes to switch his hand to his harpoon.

Skyshredder has posed:
     The light rumbling of a big steps can be heard nearing the training sim, and a few moments later in strides Skyshredder. She blinks upon seeing Jazz and Impactor, then smiles her sharky smile. "Hello Jazz! Hello mech-I-don't-know! What's happening?" she says, then hmms. "And where -do- we start? What's with the wall? Are we trying to break it? Oh! Do you need my sword?!" She pulls her massive shark-toothed chainsaw sword and brandishes it.

Jazz has posed:
Jazz beginsto make a move to pull up along side Impactor when Sky makes an appearance. He stops in his tracks and takes a few steps back from that sword. %"I guess you two should introduce yourself," and with a nod towards Skyshredder. "You got my name right. Thanks."

Impactor has posed:
Impactor chuckles at Skyshredder, "Good to meet anyone so enthusiastic. This is smash and burn on a Con base. Garrison of about fourty, at least twenty support personnel. They're on alert, base is under lockdown and internal defenses are up. We have to fight our way through, hti teh generator, get out before the explosives go out."

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder grins and nods to Jazz. "Sure I did! It isn't like I can't get your name right." she says, turning her sword downward and leaning against it. "So...smash in, smash the generator, blow it up...sounds pretty simple to me! It'll be fun to do a sim like this one!" she says, then holds out a hand to Impactor. "The name's Skyshredder! Former gladiator thanks to the Decepticons!"

Jazz has posed:
"Keep it that way," Jazz says to Skyshredder.

-THEN- his hand withdraws and a Grappling Hook emerges.

"Fine. let's do it. what is your usual strategy. Skyshredder here can soak up some hits and dish some out as well."

Impactor has posed:
Impactor smirks at Skyshredder, "Exactly. Fight way in, fight way out. It's not very complicated. You want to execute one of Prowl's convoluted things, have Prowl in charge." At the mention of 'former gladiator' Impactor's expression is completely neutral. "Known my share of those." Jazz has probably read Impactor's profile, classified or not. "Skyshredder and I will go in first. We shoot, all the Cons shoot at us. You blast things along the way till we get in."

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder tilts her head slightly at Impactor's suddenly neutral expression. "Ooooh. You were one, too?" she asks, then considers a moment. "I don't think I've been in one of Prowl's things. I don't really get those complicated plans, anyway." she says, then lifts her sword again and stands at the ready.

     To Jazz's order she smiles cheerfully and gives a less than sharp salute. "Whatever you say, bossmech!"

Jazz has posed:
Jazz nods to Impactor then to Sky, "You can two can go first if you like."

"Shall We? Looks like fun."

Impactor has posed:
The simulation then starts. As much as the simulator -can- there's the sense of being grav slammed into the asteroid as the escape pod would 'smash' into it. The trio are immediately in the middle of a large corridor, and are being fired upon from two sides as the Decepticons scramble for a pincer movement on them, autoguns being deployed as they would be under heavy fire!%

Skyshredder has posed:
     They 'slam' into the facility and Skyshredder stumbles in, her sensitive sensors ringing a bit from the impact. But, there's no time for that as the enemy fire starts peppering them! Skyshredder takes up as much of the hallway on her side as she can so that Jazz has cover and rushes the Decepticons and the autoguns. She can't really swing her big sword in a hallway like she'd want to, so she deploys the chain whip mode and starts slashing as best she can with it. "Now this is exciting!" she says with a grin even as dents and small holes start appearing in her armor.

Jazz has posed:
Jazz lands gracefully in a squat using on hand on the floor for balance.

*click* *sssss*

His thighs open and two grenades pop out and as he grabs them he rolls them down the hall way, "Cover you optics."

The grenades go off causing the bases defenses and everyone with optics trained on the trio to paues a glitch and malfunction for a few seconds.

"Lead the way impactor?" he asks with his rifle flashing into his hands. Riding on Sky's hip he stars to take on targets of opportunity a bit further along.

Impactor has posed:
Impactor is slamming through over in a breach, taking several shots. He's not seeming to do more than slow from the shots, the riot cannon on his shoulder going to blast out to clear out the Cons in rapid bursts. "PUnch through one side and let's get moving!" Speed is life in a firefight. Stayin one place, get swarmed. Impactor is transforming over to his tank mode, then going to blast along at high speed towards one group!

Skyshredder has posed:
     "Got it!" Skyshredder says to Impactor. As he moves to advance, Skyshredder moves with him. Unfortunately she isn't used to squad tactics and leaves their the rear exposed...and possibly Jazz. "Out of the way, SimCons! We've got a job to do!" she says with a grin as she tries to shoulder ram through the group that Impactor is blasting, followed up with a few swipes of her whip before she keeps going. "Stay close, Jazzy! Oh! I mean just Jazz!"

Jazz has posed:
Jazz actually turns his back towards Skyshreddeer and his shoulder flame throwr pops out and lays down a sheet of flame behind him screening their back. He darts forwards to put himself inbetween Sky and Impactor and sighs before says, "I'm know what I am doing however, you need to pay more attention to HE'S doing," he points to Impactor moving forward.

Jazz eventually ends up on top of Impactor's take mode laying down as flat as he can firing opposite the any direction the turret chooses.

Impactor has posed:
Impactor is just blasting with his turret as fast as he can over as several shots hit it hard. NOt quite disabling it, but limiting the rotation so he can't get a clear field of fire. So Impactor just goes for Option B - namely just running through the Cons, treads going to crush over them. "Help me turn this thing!" is a quick tightbeam thrown to Jazz as the trio go to ram through the Cons. The ones behind them slowed by having to leap over their disorganized comrades. And the HUD's of the Autobots are leading them inwards.. WIth the way forwards cut off by a bulkhead. "Get that thing open!" Impactor instructs Skyshredder as he would spin around to give covering fire with Jazz.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder blinks. "What do you mean? He charged forward! So did I! I was paying attention!" she says as they keep bowling over bots. When they reach the wall and Impactor says to get it open Skyshredder grins. "With pleasure!" she says, then transforms into her shark form and starts thrashing against it. Her natural strength combined with her rough skin should smash and pulverize the wall soon enough!

Jazz has posed:
Jazz grins to himself watching Skyshredder work but quickly hops off the tank and using the tank for cover also lays down some covering fire and those the get to close find out that he is also a master of martial arts, flipping one to the ground and putting a boot on his neck area before his guns flashing back into his hands and goind back in sniper action.

"You have the bombs?" he says to the only one who would have the devices.

Impactor has posed:
Skyshredder is able to rip through the wall with some work. They have a free beeline down the corridor - and several more twists ahead to get to the power core. But, they're past the first wave of Cons. Now however the issue is heavy internal jamming, which is messing with sensors beyond visual or internalized. Impactor spins backwards, facing in reverse to keep firing over at the pursuit. "Skyshredder, on point. I'll cover the rear. Jazz, between us." And then on Impactor's 'aft' there's a click as a cargo compartment pops open wtih teh explosives.

Skyshredder has posed:
     The wall comes down, and since she is already in shark form Skyshredder takes off like a torpedo down the hallway! She gets to the first twist and tries to take it at full speed, but...she doesn't exactly turn on a shanix so instead she ends up smashing into the wall before being able to correct her course. She grunts and transforms after that, and is probably a little bit ahead of the other two now. Once again showing she is not used to squad tactics, she just charges ahead!

     At least she tries to take out any autoturrets along the way, but when she reaches the next group of enemies she has a few moments without any support. And with little regard for the danger she just dives into them and starts swinging that whip again.

Jazz has posed:
Jazz transforms into his Speeder mode and heads down the corridor. He hower, can turn and twist, and avoids the walls. He is quickly onto Sky's flank and a few machins guns pop up and begins firing in almost every direction and once.

<<Resistance lighter than before. What's the way out of here?>>

Impactor has posed:
It's more of a smash through at this point. The faster they go, the harder it is over for the Cons to pin them down. OF course, right as Jazz says that they're faced with an impromtu blockade over of two Con tanks and a light artillery vehicle that has transformed behind them, having three very big guns going to point at them from behind a small series of upturned materials. And Impactor's frontal cannon is blasted off, hitting the ground smouldering. <<Flash 'em!>>

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder's optics widen as they encounter those cannonmechs, and she quickly moves to cover Jazz. She takes at least two large hits, causing her to grunt in pain and leaving her with a number of smoking craters in her form. And yet, she is still grinning. "Don worry, I won't let them stop us!" she says to the other two, but it is obvious that even the big sharky femme can't take these kinds of hits forever. She charges right for the tanks and tries to block their sightlines while she slashes with that whip at the artillery mech.

Jazz has posed:
*Clink Clink*

Two more flash bangs fly over Skyshredders form and in front of the 'Cons behind him. Jazz transforms back into his Speeder more and does a light display to the front the dazzles the enemy to the front.

"Every body isgonn have to recalibrate now. We should move quickly!"

Impactor has posed:
There's a leap up and over as Impactor just transforms to robot mode as the other two blast on past, going to simply land atop one of the tanks, going to switch his hand to the harpoon, and smash it into the barrel of one tank, using his strength to overpower and twist to the other before chasing after! They now have a freeway over to the power core! Admittedly behind a reinforced bulkhead and two huse plasma cannon turrets..

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder covers her optics as Jazz tosses those flash bangs, then charges ahead once more. She makes sure to knock over the artillery mech in the process, though! When they reach the bulkhead and the cannons, she growls lightly. "We don't have time for you!" she exclaims and transforms again. With a straight line to the bulkhead she charges forward at full speed in full shark form. A pointed, multi-ton missile aimed at just smashing that door down.

Jazz has posed:
Jazz looks left then looks right then looks at Sky as she transforms. His grappling hand comes out and he fires it a Skyshredder. Grabbing on his follows the big mech into the room.

Impactor has posed:
Impactor is just zooming along after the duo, his tank form going to blast through along after the duo as Skyshredder goes to literally crush on through with Jazz in tow. Missiles knock the plasma cannons not offline, but off kilter enough to not be able to aim as SKyshredder does what she does sharkiest - making doors in walls where there were no doors! Now the trio is over in the power core and Jazz has the bombs. Impactor calls out, "Cover him while he plants them!"

Skyshredder has posed:
     SMASH! The ramming of the door likely echoes through the facility, and leaves Skyshredder's pointed shark snout a little blunted as well. She skids through the air and finally stops before transforming. She blinks as she notices Jazz hanging on, then grins. "Apparently I make a pretty good armored mount! Blurr seemed to enjoy it, too!" she says, then moves to pick the fallen door up and uses it to block the entrance they just made. Hopefully that will hold off any pursuers for a bit! Of course, any Cons already in the room will have to be handled. Mostly technicians, but there is at least one large guard with a big gun. "He's all yours! I'll keep the others out!" Skyshredder calls to Impactor before looking to Jazz. "Better hurry though, General Jazz!" Is he a general? She doesn't really know, but the alliteration sounds good.

Jazz has posed:
:is a General.

Jazz jumps off of the shark and lands calmly.

He smiles and somehow somewhere the light glints off of it very charismatically and he says calmly.

"Gentlebots, this place is going to go bomm very soon. I would suggest that you all leave.

Looking at each other all the sciency Mechs begin to panic and scramble. JAzz goes about his business whistling lightly putting all of the explosives in the designated places.

<<Half a Breem to detonation.>>

Impactor has posed:
Impactor has another way of going about this. Namely just he goes to target the first scientist he can see and starting to smash his way around them, going to siply just move to brute force his way through anyone in the area. Because there's no such thing as a non-Con-batant as far as he's concerned in a Decepticon base, the huge Autobot going to try and simply maul his way through the melee right as well.
    This just has the scientist scrambling out of the way to no real effect while they take blasts back at him while he's berserk which would bounce off his armor. Jazz does his business as the trio are then faced with the way out.. As sirens wail warning of the Autobots present in the main generator. Impactor grunts and affirmative to Jazz, "Let's get otu of here!"

Skyshredder has posed:
     The guard already in the room goes uncontested, so he takes some shots at Skyshredder before looking over as Jazz announces that he is setting bombs. Apparently the guard decides that discretion is the better part of valor and makes his way out of another door.

     The opposition on the other side of the wall that Skyshredder knocked in starts to clear our as reports come in from the generator room, and Skyshredder peeks through before looking to the others. "Alright! Let's get out of here!"

Impactor has posed:
Impactor is zooming along (at least as fast as his mode can go) with the other two. Luckily the Cons are spending just as much time getting out of there. Now the Autobots have the second issue of the fight. That their escape pod isn't going anywhere, and all the Decepticons that can fly are heading into space or rushing towards the hangar and the ships there.. Just like they'll have to do to improvise a ride

Jazz has posed:
<<I guess with all this techs they didn't think to have a bomb squad.>>

He transforms and keeps pace with the Slowest.

<<What was the plan to get out again?>>"

Skyshredder has posed:
     Once the other two are out Skyshredder transforms to her shark mode again and makes her way back down the path they blasted and mashed open on their way here. <<"I think is was...RUUUUUUN!">> she says over the comms, laughing and grinning as she goes. She once again tries to pull ahead of the others and bowl over any Cons that get in their way as they head toward the hanger. She picks one of the larger transports and heads toward it. But, unlike Impactor she does recognize non-combatants, and so the technicians that are trying to get a cargo runner going find a big pink shark in their midst. She grins at them before transforming and saying, "Alright. None of you give us any problems and you won't get hurt. Just wait for my buddies and then get this thing going."

Impactor has posed:
Impactor is keeping up as best he can with the two, the huge Autobot not speedy even in the best of circumstances <<You want a full combat plan, have Prowl do it. Shoot and run.>> It's hard to tell at this time if the Wrecker means it or is exaggerating. His feet stomp as occasionally he'll pop out with a smaller blaster to fire at any enemies as they get over into the gaggle of Cons. Those of them who have weapons are going to point them at Skyshredder.. Right as the warning countdown to core breach flares conveniently and they're more focused on fleeing!

Jazz has posed:
<<Noted.>>

Following behind Sky he camps out on the ramp transforms back into robot mode gun appearing again. This time with it potining to the sky. Firing and random air targets.

<<I'll be sure to approve your plan next time.>>

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder doesn't know how to fly anything, so she makes sure that whoever was going to fly this cargo ship stays here and gets to the pilot's seat. "Alright, let's blow this ener-treat stand!" she says, then blinks. "Oh! That's kind of funny!" She giggles. As the ship starts to take off she looks to the Cons who did stay. "Alright, all of you hand over your weapons. I don't want any turbulence on this flight!" she says. The loading ramp slowly closes as they take off. It looks like they'll make it clear in time, and with some Con technicians to boot!

Impactor has posed:
The trio are able to shove their way over into the cargo ship. Most of the Cons are fleeing into space - those who can fly are transforming and those who can't are latching onto those who can fly to get 'lifts'. So now the trio are in th eshuttle and Jazz is at the controls and they're having to punch it!

Jazz has posed:
"Lock her down people. We are about to take the scenic route!"

Jazz sliiiiiiidddddeess into the pilot chair. Throws on the seat belts, "Make sure you buckle up."

Lifting the transport up slightly, almost too slight, he PUNCHES the throttle!

Jazz doesn't even bother to look back and or make sure the ramp is up. Someone else can handle that right? Right!

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder flails a bit as Jazz punches the throttle and causes the big femme to lose her balance. She almost falls out! Which really wouldn't be that bad since she can fly. But, she manages to grab on to the inside hull of the ship. The ramp finishes closing while they are already flying. Hopefully Impactor joined them on the ship! "Woo! Nice flying Jazz!" she calls out, giving him a thumbs up and apparently enjoying the quick takeoff. She finishes collecting weapons, then sits in the back with the Cons to keep an eye on them. "So! How'd we do?" she asks the other two Bots.

Impactor has posed:
The simulation ends with the shuttle rocketing away. Impactor grunts, "We accomplished the mission and survived. What else do you need to have done?" For him, it's simply that, simulation or not. It was accomplished and they completed the objective. "And maybe next time we can aim for something that's on the field rather than the sims."

Jazz has posed:
Jazz may or may not like the sound of that. "When we have some targets? We will let you know. You may want to be aware that we are planning some off world fugitive retrieval missions. Do those fall under your operational scope?" he asks fully knowing that Skyshredder will most likely be out of the loop.

Impactor has posed:
Impactor just glances at Jazz, "Depends. Do you want whatever it is destroyed and everyone there killed? Then I'm probably useful. If you're looking for some discretion in the matter or not a smash and kill operation, then probably not."

Jazz has posed:
Jazz blank optics then his blink and he says, "OK."

He makes a note. -NOT- the Wreckers.

Impactor has posed:
Impactor grunts at Jazz, "You did ask. And I thought you'd be familiar with the type of operations we're generally assigned to."

Jazz has posed:
Jazz nods, "Maybe you can run security for it peraps but that DOES give me ideads for another operations we may be working on."

Impactor has posed:
Impactor grins, "Those are the types I function for. So what are we going to hae to take down and what sort of assets we going to have to work with?"

Jazz has posed:
"I don't know yet. It will be pretty far off in the future if we ever even have the oppoturnity to do it," JAzz replies. "I am not reading you on those new freqs."

Impactor has posed:
As the command frequency is updated, Impactor goes to queue it in and runs the encryption and sends out a data burst. "Intialized. And understood."
