The sound of the main guns was deafening as the burning hot shell casings fell to the ground and hissed violently in the shallow water. The Raptor Assault Knights had just landed from a drop-ship L.A.P.E.S. (Low Altitude Parachute Extraction System) due to all of the enemy units scattered about the Downtown area.
Just like the ancient creature they were named for, several units were converging on a larger enemy Titan land battleship. Reminiscent of the huge battles in the Pacific in World War II, most of the remaining structures in the Downtown area were reduced to piles of dust as a result.
The Raptor Assault Knight is a two crew medium sized mech designed for taking on larger enemy units in fairly large packs. Armor for the units was excellent for the size but since most of the time they were up against significantly larger units the Raptors had a high mortality rate for the pilots. Any pilot who racked up more than a dozen missions was looked upon as quite the achiever.
