    The 3rd Angel

    LOCATION: MINSK, RUSSIAN UNION

    The city of Minsk, former capital of the nation of Belarus, then one of the western fortresses of the Russian Union, and now the base of NERV-02, stood tall against the flat lands that surrounded it, thanks in no small part to the actual physical walls ringed with turrets that surrounded the city these days.

    Though the walls managed to do their job of keeping the city safe quite well (a revitalization of defensive materials was the only reason they existed in the first place), they did not make the city very nice to look at. In fact Minsk itself was downright dreary. Almost all the old buildings had been replaced following second impact with modern more efficient structures. Tanks rolled through the streets and infantry (now in many places replaced with NERV security personnel) stood at the corners, having replaced the police force long ago.

    Despite it all the city managed to get even drearier as a torrent of rain was coming down, not that unusual since second impact had turned the region, much like the nation of Canada, into rainy swamps. Civilians continued to walk through the streets going about their daily business even as sheets of rain pelted the streets.

    Atleast until the alarms went off. For the people on the surface it was only the sound of air raid sirens, something everyone who lived in the fortress had come to be familiar with log ago and assumed it was yet another drill. Deep down in NERV HQ though, they got to know what was really happening.

    ALERT

    AT FIELD DETECTED

    BLOOD PATTERN TYPE BLUE: CONFIRMED

    3RD ANGEL: CONFIRMED


    From the clouds above a roar was heard not unlike thunder, but it carried more menace then anything nature could create. The soldiers in the streets looked to the sky as it boomed once more, before a creature as white as the clouds themselves darted out of the sky and ripped one of the many turrets from the walls, sending it crashing back to the Earth below before the creature darted back into the sky. Fire from AA positions throughout the city did nothing as their shells exploded dozens of meters away from the angel, or somehow missed despite the near perfect aim of the defensive emplacements.

    Though the soldiers may or may not have known it depending on their clearance rank, the only thing on their side that had any hope of harming the angel was three monsters of their own. The giants of steel rising out from their launchpads throughout the city, the angel had some idea though, and it directed its focus near immediately to the new arrivals. Its roar boomed again, but to those three EVA pilots it had much more substance, for it was the Angels battle cry and message. Whether they even understood what was speaking to them or not, the message was clear.

    I am.

    Through license of He who is named 'I Am' I have come.

    Though I shall never touch the base Earth, I have come.

    My claws will tear the Lillim to bloody ribbons.

    And the sky shall be my shield.

    I am the Premonition of God.

    Angel of Rain.

    I am Matariel.

    I have come.

    “Wake up everybody, this is the real deal.”

    The alarms around the place blared with power, signaling the dispatching of the units into the field. Most people where in a frenzy, reaching for their positions as Viktor strolled in the bridge, looking left and right as everyone started feeding him with information, with what little of it there was to work on. With a light rub of his temple and a quick sigh, he got back to the pilots.

    “That thing got us with our pants down… I’ll make it up to you when this is over. But for now, all Eva units, Firefly VTOLs will make a run on the Angel, you are free to engage the angel with long ranged attacks after that.”

    “Relay these orders to the Firefly squadron and the nearest tank battalion.” With that, Viktor turned around, switching frequencies as he looked into the map layout carefully. The angel was too close for comfort after all, hopefully the kids would be up to the challenge, but first he had to make sure to make it, even if only slightly, easier for them.

    “Nikolai, send in the fireflies (Firefly VTOLs +5), we need to know if we can beat this thing at all or not.” He ordered as he continued walking from left and right, his eyes never leaving the map as he tried to decide, before turning to a another radio operator. “We need our tanks in firing range yesterday, see what you can do to make it happen, a five round rapid (Tank mob +5). Order them to fire as soon as possible.”

    “Stay on your toes, we’re meant to dance with these things, not to get flattened under their feet!”

      As Olga rose up from the ground in her metal titan to face the enemy, she would feel a great weight on her chest as her sporadic dark moods and temperment reared their ugly heads again, filling her with a sense of melancholy.
      "Kapitan Sokolov sir, we have made visual contact with the Angel. Pilots Alan and Miyamoto, stay alert and approach the Angel slowly. We will be on the lookout for patterns, weakness and try to understand our enemy to know how best to defeat it." She said in her normal formal, drab and militaristic tone as she put her Eva's hands in front of her before closing her eyes briefly muttering the words, "Deploying A.T. Field." As her AT Field materialized in front of her spread out in the standard fashion, making her way cautiously towards the enemy in a slow and steady pace.

      Perfection is humanly impossible. The more you reach for it the farther away it grows. Failure is inherited to our species as a whole. But punishing ourselves and beating ourselves up for it helps nothing. The best any decent person can do is try, and try, and try again. And try to get better little by little day by day.

        Re: The 3rd Angel

        Spreading her AT Field was a strange exercise for Charlotte, even if it had been made routine through her Evangelion piloting drills. There was no physical action to it required - nothing like keeping your arms up to block your face when you were sparring, or even keeping your body low as you took cover from a hostile gunman.

        It was up not long after she arrived into the zone of operations, where immediately scrambled her Eva out to take cover. It was part of her training, a routine that kept the rest of her focused - even if it were essentially pointless, as their enemy had already fled back up into the air.

        The Commander told them to hold fire until their conventional forces had strafed the thing that was already gone, and fall from the sky, targetting the Evas. "Yessir," she said without hesitation - surely, part of a larger plan.

        For now, she kept her eyes, and her gun, pointed heavenward, ready to scramble out of the way at a moment's notice.

          Takehito was in solemn thought as he deployed his AT field. It was up in the clouds, where he couldn't get in glorious close combat, as he desired. As his commander saw fit to hold back- not his ideal combat form. Regardless, he had a job to do, and would perform it as required.

          "AT Field, deployed. On lookout."

          He looked upward, gun pointed in the same direction.

            As the three EVAs and the armed forces of Minsk watched the skies for the Angel they heard the clap of thunder as the Matariel dropped out of the skies once diving straight to Takehito EVA. Who was unable to dodge in time and Matariel tore at EVA 03Ms body with its claws. Rending huge gouges out of the EVA, and leaving the nasty surprise of a paralysis poison that would stun the EVA.

            Following its attack it withdrew into the air over Takehito but didn't disappear into the clouds. Revealing a creature that was difficult to actually see as a halo of light surrounded it, but at its center a taloned hawk like creature was visible.

              "Komrade Kapitan, Pilot Miyamoto has been disabled! Charlote, take the point; I'll get in front of Takehito, and attempt to get a shot on the target as well. If he attacks Ill be able to guard with my AT field! If and when it comes after me, tey to get behind it for an attack!" Olga suggested as she quickly got in a defensive position in front of Takehito before quickly and steadily taking at the monster with her pallet rifle before opening fire, if the angel decided to descend again, she would quickly throw up her field.

              ((Get in front of Takehito then PEW!PEW!PEW! dat angel.))

                The shell from Olga's pallet rifle blasted forward, encountering the shimmering rainbow colours that signified an AT field, and it very much breached the glowing barrier. Then in the moment it took to pass between the field and the angel itself something happened, the round, which by all rights should have hit its target, instead suddenly was pointed straight down, where it impacted into a roadway below.

                  Re: The 3rd Angel

                  Olga got off a few rounds against their enemy before she could draw a bead. It looked like a shot was on-target, but at the last second, the bullet pinged earthward, deflected. She put her gun up to aim, but Sokolov's command ran through her head - wait for the Fireflies, wait for the Fireflies - and she couldn't pull the trigger - thought telling her to hold, and observation telling her it was pointless.

                  Then Olga barked yet more orders at her, and Charlotte, irritated, snapped at her. "Tch. How do you want me to take point against a bird in the air, sister?" Charlotte asked with a sneer. "You're just a grunt like I am, so stop playing at command!"

                  Unable to make herself shoot, Char had an idea, and made her way through the landscape of Minsk over to her sister, dropping her gun nearby. She held her hands out and watched the beast up in the air, waiting for it to dive at them once more. When it did, she would be ready - ready to pounce on it, hold it down, break it's wings... and, if not, at least neutralize it's field in the air, hopefully allowing her sister to at least drill a few other bullets into it without the interference of it's deflective field again.

                    Screams could be heard over the radio as the angel attacked Miyamoto's EVA. He didn't even have time to defend himself as it tore past the armor, damaging it. While he himself was not hurt, the pain from his EVA shot through him as well. He tried moving his EVA, but to no avail.

                    "This is Pilot Miyamoto! I'm alright, but the EVA isn't responding!"

                      “Geh… alright, alright.” Viktor was surprised, they’d clearly started with the left foot. His surprise was easy notice, but then again, the man wore his feelings on his sleeve.

                      “Damned bastard… Keep your wits about this isn’t over yet. Units 2 and 3, allied crafts will begin their orders momentarily. Focus on the offensive, engage the angel however you see fit after they are done, but from that last display it’s safe to assume ranged attacks won’t suffice. My mistake...”

                      The man was visibly shaking, but no one on the bridge dared say anything, focusing instead on keeping the updates coming. “Sir, they’re ready.” Spoke Nikolai, much to Viktor’s relief.

                      “Send them in, the firefly VTOLs first (+5 -MAGI uplink.-), then our tanks fire (+5 -Five round rapid-). Charlotte, Olga, leave Takehiko to us, we can’t afford only one unit to engage the Angel.” He barked out with strength, his heart beating in fear the situation might worsen even with their efforts.

                      “The mission concludes when you all return alive and well. Good luck, kids!”

                        The various support VTOLs that flew overhead moved to direct the various sensors that covered much of the craft. Cameras, IR Sensors, UV sensors, other things that only the scientists deep in NERV knew what they were, "Roger that sir, MAGI sensors should be online in 3..2..1"

                        "You heard the commander, fire as fast as you can."

                        A deafening barrage rang out over the town as shell after shell flew into the sky, stalling the angel in place and keeping it focused on maintaining its AT Field.

                        Though that didn't manage to stop it from striking out with its claws at Unit 02, which raked off a heavy barrier the AT technician threw up in response.

                          испытывающий страх! Now's my chance! Thought Olga as the bird like Angel bounced off of her barrier she had erected. She would quickly bend her legs slightly before making a jump and attempting to use her gauntleted hand to try to seize one of the creatures talons before deploying her Prog Knife from her wing loadout to attempt to pierce it, holding it in place for Charlote to attack if she could. "Charlote, quickly why I have it restrained!"

                              Miyamoto rushed forward, vengeance the only thing in his mind. He intended to kill this thing by his own hand, as it had harmed his EVA and while not directly him, he still felt pain.

                              "I will handle this!" He yelled over the radio, before raising his own Prog Knife in the process, aimed directly at Matriel's core.

                              "Angel, you fall this day!"

                              ((Side-step Olga, assuming this is possible and attack the angel, aiming for the core, again, if possible.))
