Combat Report - September 4, 2040
Personnel assigned to combat zone:

Myst: All right, people, listen up. You lot need to know exactly what you're up against, and the only way you're gonna find that out is with practical experience. Today, you're gonna get that experience - we've got a downed sub out here, with hostiles in the area. The plan is simple: get out there, find Echo, kill Echo, and drag their corpses back to base. Get it?

All: Got it!

Myst: Good! All right, form up into three-man teams and get ready to move out!

(WHIRR-CLUNK)

(CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH)

Mann: Lieutenant, we're right next to the Echo sub!

Mc Crimmon: Aye, an' there's a bunch of Greek-lookin' ruins about, too.

(CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH)

Murphy: Oi, we got one o' those Aquatoids runnin' around!

dmboogie: Where is he, Murphy?

Murphy: Far side o' the downed sub.

dmboogie: If you've got a clear shot, take it.

Murphy: Aye, sir!

(THUPP-CRACKLE)

Aquatoid: EEEOW!

Murphy: Wahey, I got the bastard!

(CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH)

Manning: Lieutenant, I'm outside the sub's entrance.

Myst: Hold position and wait for backup. Murphy, meet me at the front of the enemy sub - we'll breach it together with Manning.

Murphy: You got it, Lieutenant.

(WHIRR-CLUNK)

Myst: Echo sighted! Taking the shot!

(THUPP-BLOOP)

Aquatoid: . . .

Myst: Echo is down. Murphy, you and Manning clear the other side of the sub.

Murphy: On it.

(CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK)

Murphy: Nothing here. Manning, cover the door into the tail section.

Manning: You got it.

(WHIRR-CLUNK)

(KSSHOW-CRACKLE)

Manning: YEEARGH!

Murphy: Manning? MANNING!

(CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK)

Murphy: Lieutenant, Manning is down, but there's no sign of the shooter!

Myst: I'll check the tail section.

(WHIRR-CLUNK)

Myst: Found him!

(THUPP-CRACKLE)

Aquatoid: EEEOW!

Myst: Shooter's down. Murphy, let's finish sweeping the sub, then meet the rest of the team outside.

Murphy: All right, Lieutenant.

(CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK)

Murphy: Far side of the sub is clear. You got anything, Lieutenant?

Myst: Negative. Looks like the rest of the sub is clear. Let's get outside and find the rest of the sub's crew.

(WHSS-THUD)

(BLOOP)

dmboogie: Echo by the temple! Taking the shot!

(THUPP-BLOOP)

Aquatoid: . . .

dmboogie: Echo is down.

Myst: Looks like that was the last one. Nice work, people - time to take this lot back to base.
