Don't let them know what hit 'em

From "Back to work"

The trees appeared instantly, and they were followed too closely by the ground. We hit pretty hard, and jumped out, looking for a fight. There weren't any droids on the ground near us, but our first priority was to take out the Anti - Air turrets so that the Gunships could get out, and more troops could be brought in. It wasn't too hard to find the first turret, after all, there were plenty of them. We had landed in a sort of coniferous forest, but the turrets were dispersed in the trees and in the plains surrounding them. The mystery planet was beginning to form it's landscape around us. There was indeed a large forested area which was partially covered in snow, and the plains around it were home to grasses around 2 feet tall, and the ground around them harboured snow as well.

My squad headed towards the nearest AA gun, which seemed to be utilizing shells to "enhance" the plasma. All that we needed to do was take care of the droids operating it, and stick a charge to the gun itself. That's what we thought at least. We jumped over the small barriers surrounding the turret position, and opened fire on the droids inhabiting it. The last droid activated a failsafe, and we didn't even notice. A few seconds later, the turret exploded just as Kappa 664 and Tau 492 were setting the charge. The blast knocked me onto my chest, and when I turned around to look for the 2 demolitions men, all I saw was a chunk of blacked plastoid and a mangled helmet. The charges had gone off as well, which caused the plasmatic blast to magnify at least by ten times it's original power. Now we knew that these Confederates were prepared for our "surprise" ground assault. "Next gun, next gun!" yelled our clone CO. "Use grenades, and don't let them know what hit 'em."

A short post, but this will be continued...

It's times like these that I'm not a clone warrior conscripted in a galactic war.

Good luck on the mission, though.

One should always bring a grenade or two, you never know what you could run into
