FLEET CONCERNED: - SECOND EXPEDITIONARY FORCE

..And our binharic cant brings his glory.
The enemies of the Omnissiah numbered many, from the Hereteks of the Dark Mechanicum and those who shall not be spoken of, to the followers and supporters of the Necron Xenos machines, built on soulless Abominable Intelligence which was denounced millennia ago at the Treaty of Olympus Mons, by the true Omnissiah, he who called himself the Emperor of Mankind. Alongside these enemies have been the supporters of their regimes, and their institutions, the despicable scum of the forces of Chaos, which stand to destroy all the gifts of the Machine God and end his magnificence for their own benefit. Their heresy stands alongside the Hereteks, who want to distort and destroy the technologies of the Machine God to laugh in his face with their mockeries of technology, which once served the Machine God faithfully and are now ruined and corrupted, their parts being used to sustain the evil creations of the Daemons, who seek to implant themselves in the machines and become Abominable Intelligences of their own. Our fleets stand in the way of such Hereteks currently, and our righteous Legio Titanica is prepared to annihilate the enemy, and wipe out and and all who support it with no mercy, to end their misuse of technology, and recover ancient Archaeotech that they may have buried there in the Quest for Knowledge, which guides the Adeptus Mechanicus, and has done since the beginning. The truth of the Omnissiah has come to the enemies of holy technologies, and the weapons which were locked from this world for years will bring a brutal end for the forces of the adversity, and the heretics shall know nothing but war as we move into their lands, and wipe out their people. The Skitarii Macroclades accompanying the fleet alongside 10 Holy Titan war-machines will strike down the traitors and crush their armies beneath the steel of their feet. While the fire of the Rangers hits the enemies in their hiding places, the Vanguard and other Skitarii forces will march onwards into the hated scum's forces, and beat them with iron and fire, bringing their lives to a swift end with a single word of inspiration from the Omnissiah, who would show them what a great day it was to fight the Hereteks and their allies in order to bolster the Quest for Knowledge. The Achainian force was a splinter group from the original Adeptus Mechanicus led exploration many millennia ago, and the Adeptus Mechanicus seek to reuinte with our lost allies, and seek out the other Explorator Fleet that was lost all that time ago, the 4th Fleet was a great fleet like the 1st, and yet nothing is known of it, save for the existence of a Forge World on Ceres, perhaps operated by agents of the Omnissiah like our own. Nevertheless, the enemy still stand in the way of knowledge and understanding, and thus must be annihilated in order to bring about the future of Machine Cult, which will recover all of Humanity's lost knowledge, gifted by the Machine God during our golden age, and then we will guard the technologies for no others are fit to handle many of our rarest and most powerful Archaeotechs, and we, as holy guardians, must crush those who wish to steal our ancient knowledge. When the Second Explorator Fleet entered the Red Star System, the enemy knew fear, as the servants of the Machine God poured through the warp and into their territories, before firing their Macrocannons at the enemy, and bringing the las-cannons to bear as beams of light pierced the endless void. From onboard 2 of the Light Cruisers, 4 Squads of Fury-Class Interceptors poured out, numbering 48 craft in total, a small number, but a number to be reckoned with, each piloted by a blessed pilot, enhanced with the reflexes of the Machine God's gifts, and given the ultimate gift of understanding of their fighters, best ensuring their proper usage against the many millions of fighters that the other force brought with them. Although alongside them, the las-cannons filled the area, ensuring that the ships and fighters were given adequate screening from the fighters of the Traitor fleet. However, the fleet, without the gargantuan force of the 1st Explorator Fleet, had to rely on defence from the Achainian forces currently battling their enemies on the other side of the void. The Macrocannons and lances did their best, however, to weaken the Despised Traitors, and ensure they would have no carriers for them to base their fighters on, which were distracted across the endless gulf of space.

The terror that must have filled the minds of the Icelandic forces at the time would've been utterly mortifying for their forces, even though they were Khornates, it would take an incredibly stupid person to not be scared when they know their forces are outgunned by the superior minds of the Omnissiah's Devotees, who would purge the system of their enemies with no regards for the lives of any civilian assets or 'surrendering' forces, as they were all Chaos worshipping Traitors, who should be pursued with machine efficiency by the most brutal squads of the Skitarii Rangers. The binary code transmitted by the Adeptus Mechanicus to their adversaries following their initial attack on the Icelandic positions would likely shake the enemy to their core. "We are the Omnissiah's Chosen, and you are but a anthill in the way of an excavator, your forces will be crushed by our might and our devotion, may the traitor forces burn in our attack." The attacks of the Admech from the Second Expeditionary Fleet would be harsh and cruel, with Macrocannons tearing into ships which had no time to react to the sudden appearance of the Mechanicus's warships, and lances and las-cannons of all kinds piercing the darkness and filling the heresy with burning holes and contempt, for that was all the Mechanicus had for their enemies. And yet despite the hatred and emotions one would expect, the Mechanicus, coldly as always, calculated the best enemies to attack, including important supply and carrier vessels, trying to cut them into pieces while other weapons targeted the foe's own weapons systems, trying to knock out high priority weapons, such as any Nova Cannons or Macrocannons the enemy had at their disposal, technologies sadly corrupted by the Hereteks which built the ships of the Traitor fleet. All the while, the fleet's own transports would attempt to break from the battle to deploy the 2 Macroclades (400,000 Skitarii) and 10 Titans which they had at their disposal on the nearby planets, using the support of the fleet's lightning attack in the background to make the run towards grouping with the Achainian invasion force which were also likely en route to lay waste to the Traitor worlds nearby. In the background, the Tech Priests worked with hundreds of lines a second of binary code to perfect the operation of the ships, and ensure that all weapons were on target and effective, with near lightspeed reflexes to react to weapons or other subsystems losing even the most minor levels of efficiency. Such was what the Omnissiah willed the fleet to do, to use the great and holy technologies and purge the enemy with nothing but cold logic pouring through their heads. The Skitarii were readied to enter battle as soon as they approached their planetary targets, and the Titans were set up, ready to begin running down the enemies with 3 squads of Warhounds, and 4 destructive Reavers, all of them ready to obliterate whoever, or whatever, stood in their way.

Achain wrote:Assault on the Red Star System: VII | December 2075 | Location: Red Star System

Nations Concerned: Icelanden

Due to a failure in recognition of enemy craft, the point defense weapons of the Light Cruiser of the 5th Destroyer Squadron and its Templar allies failed to open fire upon enemy boarding craft in sufficient time. All but one of the three Cruisers in Sector Oberon were boarded. The Voidhunters were far, yet they were sending out Stormbirds of Terminators to the boarded ships. The Light Cruiser, seemingly the luckier one, had not been boarded yet, and immediately communicated several wings of fighters around it, ordering its Machine Intelligence to fire at anything whose Serial Number it did not identify. The ship still used all available transport craft to get as many Marines, preferably heavily armored, out and straight into the Templar ships. On the Templar ships, the Templars themselves guarded important parts of the ship. Thanks to the usual Achainian design, these parts were relatively close-by, with only a hundred or so decks between them, which the roughly two thousand Legionnaires (a thousand for each Cruiser) found easier to defend. Terminators and Legionary Heavy Weapons Support teams were placed higher priority, as their guns could bring down even the mightiest of foes. Exotic Weapons Squadrons, Tactical Squadrons and Assault Squadrons were dispersed around, either waiting in ambush in the ships' many confusing and dark corridors, or out in the open with their Terminator brethren. It still fell to Marines and Gunmen to defend the rest of the ship. As they took up positions, sealing blast doors and standing behind steel barricades. Entire lines of Lasguns, Hellguns, Volkites and Marine-Grade Autoguns spread among gun decks and Crew Quarters. Soldiers waited in lines, behind closed doors, or in difficult ambushes, sometimes even side to side with First Legion Astartes. The Machine Intelligence of the ship assessed the hull damage of the ship. But even this early, the thunder of guns echoed around. Sections deemed too lost to be recovered were depressurized, or otherwise, in situations where such an option did not present itself, filled to the brim with chemical gas. Although Armored Vehicles were not present, automated tracked machines with light anti-armor guns patrolled the more open areas of the ships, supported by minor squads of Gunmen or Marines. The officers of the vessels kept in close communications with the Ninth, keeping them updated as to every second that there will still enemies on their ship. While the Admiral himself was still commanding the Destroyers, which had by this point succeeded in retreating back to the position of the Cruisers. The Destroyers themselves could offer little, but a few daring squads of Marines did still board transport craft and make their way to the Cruisers. The Admiral himself received a Communication. It was more like Binaric chanting more than anything, so he himself put it through the Machine Intelligence for it to translate. It was a cryptic message, but the entrance of another fleet into the fray and fire being opened up on the Icelandics from another side made it clear they were not enemies: "PRAY! FOR THE SONS OF THE OMNISSIAH HAVE ARRIVED!"

Over in New Scandinavia, the presence of new enemies and their sudden apparition shocked even the Gene-Fathers, yet only the more hot-headed of them chose not to calm down after learning of the facts. The Gene-Fathers ordered the rest of the fleets to stay on previous orders, to still concentrate their fire on the Warp-firing stations. They, along with their Glorianas, several hundred escorts and every single Battle Barge in the fleet were to take on these new enemies. The World Breaker and the Endurance were the very first to engage these new enemies, as both were caught just after firing their Prow-Mounted weaponry, and did not waste a second to unleash their broadsides, under order from their Gene-Fathers. Millions of fighters, still somehow pouring out from their designated Carriers, now found themselves new enemies to fight. At least a quarter of the fighter force Achain brought along was now thrown at the New Enemy, being used to guide along the solid projectile fire or to engage whatever hellspawn the enemy threw at them. Battle Barges, the fastest ships of the fleets, burned their engines vigorously, aiming to close the (relatively short, in Achainian terms distance between them and their enemies), occasionally pulling a broadside on their enemies while still in motion. As soon as they were but mere hundreds of kilometers away from their enemies, they pulled forth hundreds of Assault Rams, Dreadclaws and Stormbirds, guided and protected by small drones, designed to fly directly in the path of (significant) enemy fire to avoid any damage the boarding craft. Tens of thousands of Legionnaires, from Terminators to Breechers, all mostly drawn from the Seventh, Eighth, Eleventh and a few warriors of the Second. Fighter wings joined them, with pilots dead set on victory, either by their own will or by the boltgun of their Commissars. The rest of the Fleets were to advance upon the enemy. The Escorts that previously only aided the fighters were now fully allowed to unleash their vast numbers of Torpedoes and Lasers, with Capital Ship weaponry coming from their 'backs'. Ship Captains remembered their day, and while some advanced Prow-first, firing their Prow-mounted weaponry while only firing their Broadsides at the New Enemy, others used their side-thrusters or already built up acceleration to advance with their broadsides always turned to the enemy, unleashing all Hell upon them, occasionally turning their Prows to unleash Prow-mounted weapons or turning to face the enemy with their other broadside, as one is too worn. Still, even now, thousands of solid projectiles and beams of light burned towards the enemy. Either to guide them, or to hit them, sometimes achieving both. The Spear of Vonia herself stood. Chaplains and Commissars shouted orders and chanted Patriotic texts to its men, as they labored and braced themselves between the hundreds of meters of layered Adamantium and Ceramite Armor. Its guns, tens of thousands in number, ranging from Frigate-grade lascannons all the way to the hundreds of Battleship-grade Macrocannons. All of those and scattered dozens of Multi-Barrelled Lance Batteries, Missile Launchers and more. Spears of light burned in every direction, as the Spear of Vonia was firing in every direction that there was an enemy.

Boarding of Achainian Vessels, Battle for Sector 3 | December 2075 | Red Star System
The transports made it aboard, and the fighting began in multiple lower sections of the Achainian Cruisers. As the Thousand Sons began to make their sweeps of the sections and clear them, the priest of the Guardsmen came forth from their squads and gathered in circles and quickly drew some ritual bases in many rooms and storage areas. However the gas and depresserized environment made it difficult and some rituals were broken but others held up thanks to the gas mask and some gifts given by the Dark Gods. These remaining rituals then began to chant to bring forth daemons of The Hound called Bloodletters, one by one they began to come through the circles, slowly increasing their numbers. Meanwhile the Thousand Sons walked into a hallway, only to be shot at by multiple Lasguns. With their Chaos Bolters they returned fire, and received Bolter fire back. Astartes were on these ships, so they had to be careful as they pressed on. That and they had to protect the rituals that were happening far behind them.

Siege of New Scandinavian(Void) | December 2075 | Red Star System
The battle was growing ever near the end. Icelanden was losing their ships by the minute. With the arrival of another enemy fleet, the battle was sealed. Fighter screens fell apart, the Blackstones were being rushed by the enemy, the Glorianas and their escorts were following in the same path as the Blackstones. However a order came over the vox radio from Admiral Drago, "Go within range of the Orbital Defense Canons planet side. We shall hold with our brothers on the ground and with their held we shall prevail or at least dwindle the enemy's numbers!" With that the remaining ships in orbit of New Scandinavia, under heavy fire from the enemy began making their way closer to the planet so they could be in range of the defense canons. At the same time the Blackstones, still focusing their fire on the Spear of Vonia, began to do the same and follow their brothers as they moved into a more defendable position.

Grand Escape of New Scandinavia(Part 1) | December 2075 | Capital City of New Oslo --》Red Star System
As they looked up at the sky and saw that their defenders were failing, Liliya and her brother Gilliam looked at each other with worried faces. Their mother had recently died from a sickness that a Crow follower had given her when he tried to heal her from a wound in a fight, and the fact their father was fighting on board the Eternal Vengence, Liliya, the older of the two, was in charge of getting her brother to safety. For she knew the fighting would come down to the planet and that her and her brother could be killed. All around them soldiers and Astartes of all the Gods began to get into position for enemy troop drop pods and transports. As the siblings made their way through the city The walls that separated the Eagle worshipers and Crow Worshipers came into view. Liliya recalled that the city was divided into four subparts for each god, so that infighting would hopefully be quelled. Though born in the Subpart of the Eagle Liliya was always more free minded, than her mother and father. Her brother was similar to her, but was more thoughtful than free minded. The two counteracted each other and kept the other in check. And neither of them were as zealotist as the other worhispers in the entire city, but rumors had stirred in New Oslo of a group of people who were like them, not like the zealots of the Worshipers of the Chaos Gods. As the blue and gold towers and spires turned into a mixture of Brown and Green on the other side of the wall as they neared, Liliya looked around. She was looking for a star, not like the one that their religion used, but one of Terran design. Finally, on the wall of a great tower radiating with Warp energy, she spotted the star and looked down to her brother,
"Look Gilliam, that seems to be the star we are in search for." She pointed towards the faded white paint on the tower's wall.
"Indeed sister, I believe this' the star we searched for. But I think we should enter quickly, for the Achainians could come down any moment." He responded.
"Aye, then lets go." She began to drag the boy by the hand into the tower.
Thus began the Great Escape.

Assault on the Red Star System: Part VIII | December 2075 | Location: The Red Star System

Nations concerned: Icelanden

The Machine Intelligence upon the two Cruisers carefully observed those boarding it through whatever detection equipment it still had. Microphones and cameras previously used to give directions and monitor weapon systems were now looking at whatever forces were boarding the ship. Though the chemical gas and depressurization worked on some, it appeared others had the equipment to counter it. More of concern was the presence of enemy super-soldiers, which would take significant firepower to bring down, even more so from the gunmen of the ship. Gunmen were instructed to bunker down back before their barricades, waiting patiently in line with lasguns drawn. Those that had exotic weapons were instructed to find the perfect positions and opportunities to use it, as any meltagun or volkite could take out entire squadrons of power armored men if used properly. Impatient soldiers had already been cut down, ripped to pieces by exploding shells of bolter fire. Marines were ordered to do the same as the Gunmen, to abandon the corridors and use their much more suited weaponry and armor to defend the positions currently occupied by the Gunmen. In officers' quarters, engine rooms and other significant portions of the ships, Astartes still patiently waited, now aided by the ship-wide activation of Tarantula twin-bolter turrets, which would be controlled by the ship's Machine Intelligence itself. Boarding craft of the Ninth now arrived, disgorging their crew of hundreds of Astartes. From the regular Legionnaire and his Ceres-pattern bolter to the veterans in Legion-pattern Terminator Armor. Bolters of all kinds, blades, Assault Cannons and Volkites of all sizes were leveled towards any enemy that stood in their path. Marines from other ships began arriving as well, staying as support for the newly-arrived Astartes. The detection of warp signatures worried all inside the ships, from the Captain to the Machine Intelligence, taking the liberty of shutting down entire parts of the ship or otherwise filling them with bolter fire, to keep the Warp Spawn at bay.

Over in Orbit of New Scandinavia, the fleets ground down to a halt. Their purpose now was to turn their guns upon the fleeing Glorianas and their support vessels, supported by their very own Glorianas and swarms upon swarms of surviving fighters. Already many had perished in this battle, in fighter squadrons or in certain parts of the main vessels, which had taken significant damage from enemy fire. Flight decks suffered the most, as they were the points where ships gave up most of their armor, and suffered damage to those parts, rendering the flight decks nigh useless to the rest of the battle. Destroyer squadrons were still ordered to harass the enemy, using their torpedoes and their fast speeds to their advantage, while Frigates protected them with screens of laser fire and their long range support fired upon significant enemies. The Machine Intelligence upon the spear of Vonia, calculating with its thousands of interconnected cogitators, analysing the warp energies crashing against their Voidshields, came to a logical conclusion. Immediately, it redirected power away from certain weapon system, such as the thousands of lascannons, which had no use against Capital craft, and away to the Gellar Fields. It was known that Gellar Fields would repel Warp Energy, even as the tides of the Immaterium itself came crashing on it. Other weapons would have to be nullified by the Voidshields, by the ships armor or by the screens of fighters arriving from the World Breaker and the Iron Blood, which themselves only spared little, as they and the other Glorianas, with their Battle Barge elements, were chasing after and firing upon the enemy Glorianas, aiming to destroy them before they had the chance to go back in orbit.

Devonport Shipyard

Devonport Shipyard, established in 2035, is Helmount's largest naval shipyard, and was responsible for the construction and deployment of over 400 naval vessels since 2038. A mid-life upgrade was announced just yesterday, stating that it will be undergoing an expansion of its operations from adjacent to Devonport Naval Base in Stanley Bay to elsewhere in the North Island. The shipyard currently staffs over 500 senior engineers, 800 engineers and technicians, 3,000 technical professionals and 5,000 skilled workers, but there have been plans to increase employment opportunities.

Following expansion, it is thought that the shipyard will employ 550 senior engineers, 1,000 engineers and technicians, 3,500 technical professionals and 7,000 skilled workers, as the state seeks to accelerate the process of shipbuilding to further consolidate its naval power.

Currently, the shipyard's works are all ISO 9001 accredited, and that trend is expected to sustain itself to the future.

Two building berths, each with dimensions of 242m x 24m and a capacity of 35,000 dead weight tons, will be constructed in Ngataringa Bay. In addition, seven more building berths of identical configuration will be constructed in the Gulf Harbour, Army Bay, and Mairangi Bay areas of the city.

LOCATION: RED STAR SYSTEM - SEGMENTUM SOLAR
DATE: EARTH YEAR 2075 - EARTH MONTH DECEMBER
FLEET CONCERNED: SECOND EXPLORATOR FLEET

Weapons fire from the forces of the Second Explorator Fleet lit up the fleet of the enemy from multiple directions, using the existence of a three dimensional battleground to split into a divided pattern and ensure the enemy were being fire upon from as many locations as possible, with a probability of a 90% chance of victory in battle from using this formation to confuse and target enemies. The Light Cruisers stayed behind and obliterated high priority targets from a distance while escorts such as Destroyers and Frigates moved closer to ensure their targets were in range of las-cannons and also to provide PD support to Starhawk runs, which were calculated to have been able to wipe out traitor ship subsections with a 79% probability, although new data seemed to indicate that the trend was increasing, and the lethality of the Starhawks was more and more apparent with every run. Weapons fire from the 15 Escort craft managed to provide a screen for Starhawks and Furies to regroup for further assault runs, while ensuring that the enemy ships had a meager 4.5% of managing to break through the weapons wall at the current rate. From the back, the Macrocannons of the Light Cruisers would continue to fire at their enemy, attempting to cripple larger and more threatening enemy ships from a distance, with probability of full success in eradicating any threatening vessels being about 57%, and the probability of disabling the ships and preventing their further hostile operation being 78%. On board the smaller Destroyers, which usually flew nearer to their targets than was necessary in a space battle finally deployed their trump card, for the small craft housed 1 War Cohort of Skitarii each, numbering about 500,000 Skitarii in full numbers, began deploying their Skitarii through dropships into the disabled or damaged vessels of Chaos, calculating that there would be a chance of ancient, uncorrupted archaeotech being stored on board with a probability of around 25%, enough of a probability to warrant deployment of the Skitarii forces, of course alongside the probability of their lesser assignment, defeating the forces of the traitors being around 64% through boarding, while the Destroyers would be too at risk of their own destruction with it likely that if the Destroyers were to remain in range of weapons systems on board these vessels, many of which were calculated to have atleast a 10% chance of being online still, then they would make a loss, something undesirable in a near victorious fleet. Nearby, Frigates were frying the armour of the enemy vessels, hitting them over and over with las-barrages, which would allow them to burn the unholy abominations of the hereteks from existence. With victory in sight, the fleet would gradually reform into the singular body once more, as to target enemies in a more concentrated manner, which would be more advantageous to wipe out the larger vessels which were still remaining, as smaller vessels were targetted much earlier into the battle, and no longer presented as much a threat to the forces of the Adeptus Mechanicus as they once had during the entry phase of the battle, due to the need for the destruction of screening vessels, which presented the largest threat to the squadrons of the Starhawks who were to wipe out the damaging capability of the larger ships in the region. Torpedo fire now would also finally begin to play a larger role in the battle, with the Destroyer fleet, pulling back from their boarding actions, firing torpedoes into non-boarded ships or ships where the Skitarii had not made much of an advance, not trying to destroy their own force, but attempting to eradicate sections of the traitor vessels coordinating on-board defence efforts as to increase the chance of a Skitarii victory on board the vessels.

The battles on the vessels themselves raged on, with the forces of the Cohorts using their large Vanguard forces to direct their Onager Dunecrawlers into the defended hangar of the vessels, plasma cannons streaking across the room and punching through walls and still-docked fighter craft, while rad-fire lit every enemy in the room up, melting through the enemy by causing their weak flesh to break down and die thanks to radioactive damage to the corrupted flesh of the traitor men and women. Meanwhile the Hypasists on board would engage with enemies who were now trying to fill the room back up and force them out after the Vanguards had cut their own path through the ship, trying to wipe out enemy targets with Dunecrawler and Battle Servitor support. From space, the Tech Priests would meticulously plan out the victory of their forces within the enemy vessels, providing cut downs of enemy vessels and using data of enemy troop movements to calculate where the enemy was and where they could be engaged with minimal casualties and highest chance of victory. Data flowed from the battle to the Tech Priests and back as the forces of the Adeptus Mechanicus slew the traitors on board the ships, and ensured their own positions were safe from enemy attack at all points. Meanwhile the Skitarii Rangers and Sicarian Infiltrators and Ruststalkers would be tasked with wiping out high priority enemy targets to break down the enemy command chain and ensure the victory of the Skitarii against their foe, who would likely scatter or be crippled in their actions. In addition, wiping out the enemy command chain would allow the Adeptus Mechanicus to better target and break down the enemy force, as it would be likely that without commanders, their movements would be more erratic and illogical, driving them into well prepared Skitarii traps, which more than likely would achieve victory at every turn. The chaos onboard the enemy ships was not chaos in the eyes of the Skitarii, and their commanders, but rather a completely directed flow of logical information and probability bringing about the outcome of each battle as expected by the forces on board the vessel. If the Achainians were to engage in a battle like this, they would surely be unable to comprehend the massive flow of directed attacks and defences carried out by the Skitarii, but the forces of the Adeptus Mechanicus were fully capable of using shock and awe and large scale tactical and strategic planning to bring about the defeat of any adversary, with cold and often ruthless success thanks to the emotionless fighters they had deployed on the field to fight with. Corridors were filled with gunfire and corpses, while landing bays and other large connected rooms would quickly become stomping ground for Cataphractii such as Dunecrawlers, and also a stomping ground for Ballistarii, which also stomped around these larger areas, imposing and tall, with lethal weapons mounted on them and used by the best marksmen of the Skitarii, Rangers.

It was certain that the battle would be won at this point on, and the transports continued down towards the planet to group with the Achainian forces already enroute, while forge ships continued to provide new fighters and components to each one lost during the battle in this subsector of the Red Star system. The Adeptus Mechanicus were to emerge nearly unscathed, as a brutal and calculating force capable of eradicating any enemy which stood in their paths during their pursuit of knowledge, and during the mission to wipe out the hereteks which had turned against the Machine God, and thus were willed to be killed by the Tech Priests and the Omnissiah's will. Endless datastreams provided ample knowledge for the Adeptus Mechanicus to jealously guard for their own research into battle strategy and planning to perfect algorithms and keep a log of the battle and any technologies obtained from the traitor fleet which was utterly annihilated during the course of the battle. Machine Spirits on machines aided their pilots in properly controlling and targeting forces all around the battlefield, and their holiness was once more confirmed, for these gifts of the Machine God provided ample support to the Adeptus Mechanicus during the course of the battle, aiding in calculating probabilities in which larger amounts of variables were involved, and cutting down on calculation times by microseconds, which was essential for perfect planning of the battle.

Nations concerned: Icelanden

The Machine Intelligence upon the two Cruisers carefully observed those boarding it through whatever detection equipment it still had. Microphones and cameras previously used to give directions and monitor weapon systems were now looking at whatever forces were boarding the ship. Though the chemical gas and depressurization worked on some, it appeared others had the equipment to counter it. More of concern was the presence of enemy super-soldiers, which would take significant firepower to bring down, even more so from the gunmen of the ship. Gunmen were instructed to bunker down back before their barricades, waiting patiently in line with lasguns drawn. Those that had exotic weapons were instructed to find the perfect positions and opportunities to use it, as any meltagun or volkite could take out entire squadrons of power armored men if used properly. Impatient soldiers had already been cut down, ripped to pieces by exploding shells of bolter fire. Marines were ordered to do the same as the Gunmen, to abandon the corridors and use their much more suited weaponry and armor to defend the positions currently occupied by the Gunmen. In officers' quarters, engine rooms and other significant portions of the ships, Astartes still patiently waited, now aided by the ship-wide activation of Tarantula twin-bolter turrets, which would be controlled by the ship's Machine Intelligence itself. Boarding craft of the Ninth now arrived, disgorging their crew of hundreds of Astartes. From the regular Legionnaire and his Ceres-pattern bolter to the veterans in Legion-pattern Terminator Armor. Bolters of all kinds, blades, Assault Cannons and Volkites of all sizes were leveled towards any enemy that stood in their path. Marines from other ships began arriving as well, staying as support for the newly-arrived Astartes. The detection of warp signatures worried all inside the ships, from the Captain to the Machine Intelligence, taking the liberty of shutting down entire parts of the ship or otherwise filling them with bolter fire, to keep the Warp Spawn at bay.

Over in Orbit of New Scandinavia, the fleets ground down to a halt. Their purpose now was to turn their guns upon the fleeing Glorianas and their support vessels, supported by their very own Glorianas and swarms upon swarms of surviving fighters. Already many had perished in this battle, in fighter squadrons or in certain parts of the main vessels, which had taken significant damage from enemy fire. Flight decks suffered the most, as they were the points where ships gave up most of their armor, and suffered damage to those parts, rendering the flight decks nigh useless to the rest of the battle. Destroyer squadrons were still ordered to harass the enemy, using their torpedoes and their fast speeds to their advantage, while Frigates protected them with screens of laser fire and their long range support fired upon significant enemies. The Machine Intelligence upon the spear of Vonia, calculating with its thousands of interconnected cogitators, analysing the warp energies crashing against their Voidshields, came to a logical conclusion. Immediately, it redirected power away from certain weapon system, such as the thousands of lascannons, which had no use against Capital craft, and away to the Gellar Fields. It was known that Gellar Fields would repel Warp Energy, even as the tides of the Immaterium itself came crashing on it. Other weapons would have to be nullified by the Voidshields, by the ships armor or by the screens of fighters arriving from the World Breaker and the Iron Blood, which themselves only spared little, as they and the other Glorianas, with their Battle Barge elements, were chasing after and firing upon the enemy Glorianas, aiming to destroy them before they had the chance to go back in orbit.

Boarding actions in Sector 3 | December 2075 | Achainian Vessel, lower decks
As the Thousand Sons pushed forward they were soon joined by a large group of 20 Bloodletters, that all though hated the Eagle's men, would put up with them as they moved forward towards the Ship's core. As they neared they began too take heavy fire from hostile Astartes and standard troops that bunkered down in the room. The Bloodletters would surge forward, followed by another group of 20 who just came from the rear. The Thousand Sons, using their Bolters began to focus on the turrets and Astartes of the fortification. Awhile below decks the rituals continued, this time summoning daemons of the Crow. Slowly a team of 4 Obminators took form in the Materium and make their way to the Core to assist their Warp Brethren as they assaulted the Core. However they took a wrong turn and they themselves came across Achainian Guardsmen who ran into rooms and peaked out and began shooting at the Crow's Daemons

Siege of New Scandinavia | December 2075 | Red Star System
Alarms began ringing out on a cruiser following the fleet, apparently an hostile force boarded the hanger bays and began pushing forward. In response defensive positions were layed out across the ship, most in the form of Red Corsairs and World Eaters(traitors) with heavy bolter gun positions in place. Guardsmen held the positions higher up on the ship, and a large amount of troops made their way to the Ship's core, Munition bays, and Bridge. Meanwhile the other ships in fleet kept on their course, at the same moment they noticed ships going down towards the planet. With what point defense system they had they fired at the landing ships and pods in a hope of leasing the enemy landing numbers. The remaining satellites finally began to shut down from the lack of attention to them. The Blackstones finding that the Spear of Vonia wasn't going down, began to focus their attention on the enemy Battleships and Grand Crusiers in a hope to destroy, or at least disable them, before they can launch any more landing vessels towards the planet. Planet side, Orbital Defense Canons began firing up towards the enemy landing craft and drop pods. Lorekeepers, Lore guardians, and Plague Wardens began to take flight and intercept the ship's as they entered the atmosphere. Fighters that remained grounded for this occasion took off and began to do the same as their daemons, and focus more on the drop pods as they came down. Flak guns of all kinds began to fire upwards, the snowy sky filled with the shells that detonated in mid air. Guardsmen, Astartes, militias, and daemons of all kinds began to run to defensive positions all around the city. The higher districts held snipers and siege canons, the walls held the ODCs, Flak guns, and some siege canons. The Warp Towers, would activate their defensive warp beams to counter any large target that presented it's self on the grounds outside the main city walls. The city seemed to have been brought to a horrid, terrible life of gun fire, warp beams, and canon fire, all in the defense of the Great City.

Grand Escape of New Scandinavia | December 2075 | New Isle, Eagle section, Inner warp tower
Liliya and Gilliam made their way down the stairs of the tower, for the stars' trail headed down there. Slowly the atmosphere above them erupted in gun fire, marking that enemies were making their way down to the planet. This spoke haste into the siblings as they made their way down the stairs quicker than their previous pace. They eventually found their way into the under area of the city, with the stairs ending at a door which was left open to reveal the fluids of blood, plague, and other horrids. The Terran stars' trail went down the undercroft and towards an opening on the same side they were on. They made their way silently to the opening to fine another group of people there, all gathered in a small circle,
"Greetings..." Liliya spoke in a quiet tone
A man looked up and smiled, "More escapees eh?" He gave the siblings a questioning look.
"Yes, we followed the stars and so far they have gotten us here." She said holding her brother.
"Same as us, the trail took us here as well. It seems though the trail stops here, possibly a hidden passage." The man said.
"Then let us look for it." A woman said as she got up and began searching the room.
As she searched so did the others, Gilliam began to feel the wall's bricks. He must have found it because a click sound was heard a second later and a passage opened up with more Terran Stars marking the continuation of the trail. The group looked at each toerh silently and pressed on. Liliya felt a bit of pride in her brother, and a sense of comfort in knowing they found more trying to escape the city.
