Battle at the Iceberg 3
Thanks to Diaroze, the Imperial Guards’ formation was disrupted.
With the Calencians waiting for their chance to attack, they immediately use the opening to their advantage.
An Imperial Guard moaned as she somehow managed to parry a strike from the [Van Wolf]’s longsword with her shield.
The Empress’s crest on the shield was scraped off due to the strong impact.
“It’s difficult to tell who’s attacking who isn’t it!”
While screaming with joy, Tersis planted a knee kick on the [Renion]’s abdomen.
Along with a loud crash, the jet-black striker was staggered.
“Time for the finishing blow….”
A [Renion-bogen] fired at the [Van Wolf] with its long blaster rifle.
With a red beam flying toward her, Tersis swiftly evaded.
The Imperial Guard corrected her aim and was about to fire her second shot but the next moment, a large caliber shell exploded on the chest of her [Renion-Bogen].
The jet black striker instantly exploded, sending its limbs and armor pieces scattering in all directions.
“Leave the support to us!”
Shouted the driver of a multi-legged tank.
It’s a weapon of the planetary-defense force.
Their morale was tremendously high probably due to the fact that they couldn’t do anything to help while the battle was taking place in space.
The [Van Wolf] was designed to be a duelist.
It’s not a great striker on a battlefield where you can get ganged by multiple enemies but that’s a different story if she has fire support.
With a fierce smile, Tersis accelerated at full speed and sped the crimson Zenith to the first[Renion] like a cannonball.
The Imperial Guard still couldn’t recover from the kick earlier and was defenseless.
With a high-pitch noise, Tersis’s longsword plunged into the abdomen of the [Renion].
Pulling out the sword from the now powerless [Renion] Tersis kicked it away and retreated.
A moment later, several large-caliber grenades land on the nearby mountain surface.
Tersis frowned as shrapnels and ice fragments hit the [Van Wolf].
The enemy bombardment is still ongoing.
They are using the type of explosive that has built-in shrapnels that are powerful enough to destroy a striker within a certain range of impact.
With that kind of firepower, Even an ace like Tersis considers it a threat.
“Strikers aside, their artillery is a nuisance.
Can’t we do something about it?”
There are certainly not a few enemy strikers that are moving sluggishly probably due to Diaroze’s [AV].
However, the enemy artillery is still alive and well.
In fact, their bombardment got even more intense as though they did not care about their vanguard at the front line.
“If our counter-battery can’t do the job then there’s no other way but to deal with it ourselves.
Please give us permission to go!”
Eleanor shouted in a high-pitch voice.
She seemed to be quite frustrated at how they were being one-sidedly bombarded.
“Give it up! If you leave this place then we won’t be able to cope with the enemy’s offensive you know!”
Diaroze shouted back in an exasperated voice.
She just made the same argument earlier so it can’t be helped that she’s tired of it.
“You guys are the only ones here who can take out the [Renions] okay.
Get it through your skull how important you are.”
At the moment, the [Claymore] and [Jetta] are only able to keep up with the [Renion] with the support of each other and ally multi-legged tanks.
No matter how low the morale of the Imperial Guards is, the difference in both machine and pilot’s skills is just too difficult to overcome.
That’s why, Schleer and Diaroze decided on a tactic where their common soldiers stall the enemy [Renions], creating a chance for their Zenith to finish them.
If Tersis and the others leave this theater there’s no doubt that the enemy will break through.
Still, Tersis and Eleanor’s go-to strategy is ‘attack’.
They won’t be satisfied if they are only instructed to stay on the defensive.
That’s why, hearing Diaroze’s reply, the two puffed their cheeks at the same time.
“You nobles are simply too impatient [DESU]!”
Nora chimed in with a ridiculing tone.
She herself is also frustrated by this situation but she doesn’t voice it out loud.
“You can go you know? While you take out their artillery, I get to accumulate my score here after all [DESU].”
“I can’t have that huh…….!”
Tersis bitterly smiled at the young girl’s provocation.
When she was taunted like that it certainly is difficult to argue back.
With no other choice, she started looking for her next prey…….however…..
[[High Heat Source Detected!]]
At the same time, the AI coldly reported, Tersis felt a chill on her back and reflexively accelerated away from the place she was standing in.
The next moment, a thick beam pierced the ground where Tersis was standing earlier.
Dry ice evaporates in an instant, causing a big explosion.
On the other hand, the [Van Wolf] took the brunt of it and got blown away.
“Guh, was that their battleship?”
After safely landing her striker, Tersis turns her attention to the direction where the shot originated from.
It was from the sky.
There, a black&white themed striker was holding a cannon that was even larger than its body.
At its side was a striker of the same color theme with a giant sword on its back.
