Operation SHADOW SKY
Four hours ago
AWACS: "Enemy threat level down to 10%. They're out of rockets and you've blown up the launchers. They won't be bothering anyone anymore."
Shadow Commander: "Goddamn Shroomanians! Keep on firing! Shoot at the sky!"
Crow-1: "All that's left are Shadow soldiers shooting at us with their rifles. What a sad sight..."
Galm-2: "It should be easy pickings for the Baerns, same goes for the Shadow resistance."
Crow-1: "Good for them. I'm all out of missiles and it's just about time to RTB. SkyEye, requesting permission to GTFO."
AWACS: "Permission granted, Crow Squad. Same to you, Galm. Head for home, reload and refuel, and prepare for another sortie."
Galm-2: "Alright, you heard the man. Let's head home."
Crow-1: "Wait! Galm-2, you've got a missile on your tail! Evade!"
Crow-1: "Deploy flares! Galm-2! Pixy!"
Galm-2: "I'm hit! Goddamn!"
AWACS: "Galm-2, what's your status?!"
Galm-2: "I'm still airborne, it must've been a near-miss -"
Crow-1: "Holy shit!"
Crow-1: "You're flying with one wing, Galm-2!"
AWACS: "What? Say again, Crow-1."
Crow-1: "SkyEye, Pixy's flying on a solo-wing!"
Galm-2: "If I can hold this thing together..."
AWACS: "You still can't make it back to friendly territory. You better eject, Galm-2."
Galm-2: "And hope the Baerns or the resistance find me before the General's guys? Hell no, I'm taking this baby back home. No way I'm crashing and burning in this dump."
AWACS: "Alright. Crow-1, you're to escort Galm-2 back to base. Who else is close by?"
Crow-1: "I got Crow-2 with me..."
Crow-2: "This is SkyKid. Mang, I never thought I'd see a SAF TOP GUN ace flying so hot after
he got hit by a missile."
AWACS: "You two, RTB with Galm-2. Try to cross the Shadow Strait and do an emergency landing in PeZookia."
Crow-1: "Acknowledged, SkyEye."
Galm-2: "I'm getting some vibration from my right rudder... are we doing this or not, Langley?"
Crow-1: "Relax, Pixy. We're taking you home. Come on, SkyKid."
Crow-2: "Time to watch a real pro in action."
Galm-2: "Shut up."
Unknown (female voice): "This is the loyalist force of Emperor Shady! We have taken over the norther air base. All friendly FUN Forces are cleared to land."
Crow-2: "What was that?"
Galm-2: "I don't know, but it's good timing. I don't think I can make it to PeZookia."
Crow-1: "You're gonna trust those guys?"
Galm-2: "I have no choice. It's either that or I crash and burn on my ass."
Crow-1: "Alright, but we've got a problem."
Galm-2: "What's that?"
Crow-1: "There are Hind Ds heading for that air base, and they don't look like they're heading there to reload and refuel."
Crow-2: "We don't have any missiles left, what are we gonna do?"
Galm-2: "Have you ever had gun training back in Langley?"
Crow-1: "Not much..."
Galm-2: "Then consider this an on-the-site TOP GUN training session. Blast them out of the sky!"
Crow-1: "You heard the ace, SkyKid. Let's gun those Hinds down!"
Crow-2: "The Shadows won't have anything left of their military when we're through with them! Yeeehaw!"
Hind Pilot: "What the- ?! Goddamn!"
Crow-2: "Didn't even know what hit 'em."
Crow-1: "We're almost there. You holding up alright Galm-2?"
Galm-2: "Yeah. Lowering landing gears now... resistance airbase, this is Galm-2, SAF. Requesting permission to land."
Resistance Air Controller: "Permission granted, Galm-2. Will your two friends be coming along?"
Crow-2: "Hey, a chick. Sounds hot too!"
Galm-2: "Negative on that, ma'am. Just me. I'm coming in for an emergency landing."
Air Controller: "Confirmed. I'm ordering our people to prepare for your landing, just don't make it rough, Galm-2."
Galm-2: "I'll try to go in slow and easy on you."
Crow-1: "Be careful, Pixy."
Galm-2: "Thanks for all the help, Langley. What's your name, man?"
Crow-1: "The name's Patrick James Beckett, but you can call me PJ."
Galm-2: "Thanks, PJ. You can call me Larry, Larry Foulke."
Air Controller: "Galm-2, maintain current course and heading and - are you flying with one wing?!"
Galm-2: "Yeah. Sure looks like it."
