”Hawk’s Nest, this is Hawk Actual. First Dynasty has confirmed contact with the target, no deviations from our anticipated scenario. Commence your operation.”
"That’s our signal. Let's rotate engines."
As the Carrier Planes meet in formation above the floating city and depart to their north, a fifth Plane joins the formation from an unknown air field.
"Hawk Actual, Hawk Actual... This is Harrier One, we're at flight level one-eight-oh entering your wake. A little over one hour to bingo fuel. We're on our last legs from NERV Sub-base Australia, have a special delivery for you. Our cargo is asking to get you to hack them into the Operator Network."
"Harrier One, Hawk Actual will comply. Assume formation behind Hawk three, standby for final drop approach."
A crackle of static announces the arrival of a fifth member into the pilot's conference-style radio network. Miles ahead of your flight, the waters around the target island team with vessels from Carrier Battle Group Kirishima.
”First Dynasty, Blue Raider has the island in visual. Holding for your signa--
Huh, never seen anything quite like that before. Raiders, all vessels on immediate battle alert. CAG, the flight deck is yours.“
Director, we are just in time. The Fourth Angel has awoken. Abilities are as yet unknown, MAGI is routing all available military data streams and forming our analyses now.
