Kate slipped into her slimmer, customized Mark XI. She was all grins and smiles, as she looked at the male Marines undressing her with their eyes. "Poor guys..."
Leo was a blank slate, emotionless as ever. Sealing his helmet with a snap and a hiss, Leo picked up his guns and strapped them away. The Marines had heard about what Leo had done to one of their fellows. Leo had been drunk, unarmed and unarmored, and yet he managed to take down one of the best Marines, fully armored, in hand-to-hand combat.
Leo sealed himself into his Gear, the HAG-00 Apollyon, armed with incindiary grenades, a high-yield electro-magnetic plasma rifle, super-dense depleted uranium gatling cannon, and a pair of shoulder-mounted high-explosive missiles. Its ceramic-diamond armor, while nearly impenetrable, made it a slow, but dangerous, heavy assault Gear.
Kate got in her HSG-87 Tiger, armed with a warped plasma/depleted uranium longrifle, flashbangs and smoke grenades, and dual SMGs. The Tiger was fast and dangerous, armed wih magnetized close-combat claws, perfect for a heavy scout. it wasn't as fast as the fastest, but its guns made up for that.
"Ready to roll."
"All right. Let's haul ass."
The DREAM MAKERs boarded their personalized dropship, which headed out first, followed by Marine dropships.
"Alright, we'll be the first to make earth. The Marines will be attempting to take out the orbital cannons, or take them over so we can have orbital bombardments. But remember, they're Marines; don't expect anything from them."
A bit of humor from the squad leader helped calm whatever jitters everyone had.
