...So in conclusion: Great scores all around, good chemistry with her classmates. What can I say, we've got her a perfect student well on her way to some great things! [He smiles at Eileen]

On final thing: The School Band Advisor wanted Eileen to come more often to band practice. I understand she's been missing quite a lot of them? Now, I know this is a complicated situation but I strongly advise Eileen to commit her club duties.

Too much.

I am glad to hear she is doing so well, though it sounds a little strange.

Eileen does have more than just the band as an extracurricular commitment, but she should still hold herself to her other hobbies.

I don't thinks it's a big concern, but I suppose it will be up to her to find the time again to commit to it.

Thanks for the input. I would love to help but Eileen's other activities are quite demanding in terms of the scheduling. Among other things.

If you are trying to say we are the target, I don't really buy it.

Judging by the strong AT field, probably Florence.

I just had a thought, maybe the bursts of damage occur when the lazer has built up a charge and fires it all at once, and maybe it has been aiming at the HQ this whole time. If that is true, it would be a really really bad idea to continue towards the HQ.

We still don't know how it got this close without us noticing, this is troubling. We'll need a full investigation once- [He sighs] if we successfully destroy it.

It appears this one originated from the Mare Imbrium on the moon. [He sighs again] It means The Sea of Showers or Rains in Latin.

As of right now this Angel demonstrated two methods of attacking : a very focused antielectron beam, not unlike our Positron technology, and some kind of EMP blast. The latter is why our communication grid is down since the attack.

Our main problem is its location: the Ninth is in low-orbit. We first tried to launch modified ASM-135 ASAT missiles but it shot those down easily. I then cleared the use of the Solomon Cannon in hope it would change the Angel's trajectory and it did. We now have some breathing room to organize a counter-attack.

Good call, that was the last "safe" shot we had with Solomon Cannon but considering the circumstances, it was well spent.

>> No.48249582

Unfortunately we cannot. This is outside the MAGI's sensor range. We could always make a pass with Chariot's radar dish but considering how the 9th Angel took out those missiles I would advice against it.

There's a chance we won't need to get anything up there. The Angel is 300km high and falling because of the Solomon shot - it might not be able to keep its altitude. We won't be sure until it drops below 140km.

In any case, we have two days at most before it regains a possible firing position.

>> No.48249629

dont you think that you can arm our wings with some n2, fighters and all?

>> No.48249642

What about the EVA launch system? I know I cleared something to deal with the last orbital angel before it came down to us.

>> No.48249659

The last Angel that attacked from such a distance decided to come down for a meet and greet. I doubt this time we will be so lucky.

We either need to send nonconventional forces up to it, or blast it out of the sky. 2 days should be enough time to see if we can potentially get EVAs ready for combat in space. Otherwise, we will hit it as hard as we can from here.

>> No.48249671

So we need to start preparing for both alternatives now and then finalize the plan depending on whether it stays up or goes down.

Think we can get something useful from analyzing areas impacted by the attack?
I would like to know if the EMP blast can disable EVA Unit. But I can imagine we're working with limited data here.

>> No.48249706

I wonder if we can send an EMP back at it. The fact it can use such an attack might suggest it uses similar energy systems. It's not worth betting on, but maybe an experiment will show something.

>> No.48249786

Can't we use both plans? Attack from space and air? We can use weapons that can't be show down from the ground while the EVA's are out of range.

Actually, wouldn't the EVAs just be shot out of the air like the missiles?


Overloading it's ability is a good plan, but expensive. And if it can shoot 1 missile every several seconds, but it can shoot the missiles while they are 2 minutes out then it's pointless. We need it's range.

I'm working with the assumption cadence of the attacks is similar to what we've seen so far. Between Eileen's school getting hit and the attack in the middle of traffic jam t had to be good 5 minutes at least. If it works more like danmaku then it would be useless, yes.

We could scrap together some random stuff to try and make a shield for the decoy Eva to increase survivability. Florence has the strongest AT field and is technically expendable, her in Unit 03 is our obvious choice for the bait mission. ;~;
We need some hard data on the angel's beam attack such as rate of fire and how quickly it can change targets etc, but this might be plausible if the facts check out. What do you guys think?

Warning: I came up with this idea so it's probably horrible and we shouldn't even consider it.

More barrages would be better, but I'd prefer a plan that doesn't involve someone sticking their neck off and hoping it's thick enough to jam the guillotine.

>> No.48249979


Several missiles were taken out in the blast, so it at the least has the capacity to hit more than one. And for it's main cannon the recharge is very very long. We also don't know if the missiles were blown up in the main blast or a smaller separate blast. And this one is The Sea of Showers, it might have a few tricks regarding fire rate.

You're right though, it's worth a try. And attacking from several angles against a glass cannon is the best shot we have.

>technically expendable
Take that back you scum!

Is it really bait though? If we can guarantee her safety until close contact she would have a real chance to do some damage.

We can put a Evangelion unit up there. It'll cost a fair bit, but it is feasible.

I must warn you, Major, that this would require utmost precision in execution. An orbital interception would leave no place for mistakes so the time window for the attack will be extremely short. Furthermore, the Evangelion Unit would be alone with 5 minutes of internal power. You could call this an all-or-nothing situation.

The other option is to wait it out and take the chance that it will drop out of orbit. If it ever happens we'll have the advantage. Our city is heavily defended, we know the terrain, how to use it, and we would have the entirety of our conventional forces to back the Evangelion Units in the fight.

Since you're the Head of Tactical Operations I guess it's up to you to decide.

Which one is it going to be, Major?

>> No.48250870

let it descend. With our luck we'll need every eva operational, and we'll probably still have to duct tape the zweileens together and jury rig another.

>> No.48250958

Our power is in our flexibility. We will wait to see if it drops out of orbit, even though my gut tells me it won't.

If it doesn't drop out of orbit, we can attempt a two stage missile barrage with an EVA shooting it from the ground and see if it shows us any more of it's tricks. If it lands, I'll want a better reading from MAGI.

With our luck, the Angel will just show us something new and blow up the EVA after changing to another form.

>> No.48250959

Wait for it to drop out of orbit and launch some missiles occasionally to figure out the range on it's defenses. The orbital interception would be a good idea but with our recent luck we would probably lose another pilot and maybe an entire EVA.

I'm having second thoughts about letting it fall...

So we have two days at most before it regains firing position. What's its velocity and acceleration now? If it looks like it's going to reestablish itself, can we predict a lowest point to intercept it at?

I want to crash the ISS into an angel you guys

>> No.48251229

How about we ensure it falls instead?

We can launch a lower risk interception mission with the goal not of killing the angel, but forcing it to crash land. Our goal won't be to kill it, but to scare the hell out of it and pressure it into falling. This way we leave nothing to chance.

Of course, we risk the angel retaliating with an unforeseen ability. There's also the fact that we'll have one less Eva on the ground for the actual battle. But if we succeed in this, we can control the circumstances of the battle entirely and stay on the offensive throughout the entirety of it.

Yes, there won't be an EVA intercept. I still want to attempt a missile barrage though.

>> No.48251257

Getting the EVA anywhere near this thing, which shoots approaching targets with lasers, is a risk all on it's own. Even if you say low-risk, it's not low risk at all at just by trying to get near.

I agree with this anon. I just don't know how the hell we're gonna force it to go to ground. Fill the sky around it with explosions? Hit it with EMP?

Also any EVA we send up without some kind of diversion would be a out in the open and just as likely to have itself knocked out of orbit or crashland. We all saw what happened when the first Florence crash landed...

>> No.48251331

I think we are going to have to combine tactics, missile barrage while sending an EVA up there.

>> No.48251370

When I say "low risk," I mean low risk compared to the objective being to kill the angel with the interception. Of course this is still going to be extremely dangerous.

The real question is, what does our Eva do when it makes contact? We need a plan for it to knock the angel out of orbit, otherwise this is pointless.

Maybe Florence can do some AT wizardry to destabilize the angel's descent? We don't need to deal any real damage to it, we just have to knock it off course some more and make sure it falls.

I finished catching up, and there are several things I want to point out.

1. Rachel is best girl, but Sophie actually has sense. Rachel sees us as another lay and has already mentioned getting back with Asian girl. We are friends that had sex, she doesn't see it as anything more and neither should we, especially since she started it. Sophie true best girl. Seafood when.

2. Whoever knew what they were doing with the two webms didn't finish their work on the two maps. I'm guessing they are trying to grow an Angel down there, the 'egg'. It will probably kill us all if we don't stop it.

3. In the last Angel fight, Clair (Captain, Bombardment Wing) Just said "Alright, that's enough idling around. Drop the kid." and dropped first child without our orders.And Ace Squadron made an unauthorized sortie. We need to make sure people actually obey our orders. I blame Clair for her death, things might have worked out better if we had waited a bit and dropped her on the angel instead of the shell.

Also, why would you make fun of a kid?

>> No.48251430

Other thing is what about reentry for our EVA and pilot?

Because I half-jokingly thought of having them surf the angel down then realized what would our EVAs do up there to actually get down.

>> No.48251486

Maybe she can have an AT flare in hand? but if we did that all the EVA would be is a delivery system, which is stupid.

We shouldn't send an EVA up unless someone has a clear idea on how to get the EVA up there, do some damage to actually make the sortie mean something, and get out.

Remember, it might be landing anyway. It's stupid to just head up in the sky to grab on and see what happens.

Yeeaaah... Science, R&D, I need more opinions on that. The plan sounds good in theory, but I have my doubts about dropping the rifle if it starts acting spooky. For all we know, it could generate an AT field and survive reentry and destroy half a continent when it crash lands.

>> No.48251678

Problem with just dropping the Solomon cannon is assuming that it'll let itself be let go and that nothing underneath will be damaged by the fall. We'll need pick a clear zone for the shot. But if we do that we should still look into the angel's predicted lowest point for the best attack vector, maybe even use the missiles to try to force it lower.

I'm remembering how Vancouver started off.

>> No.48251682

Actually I think they pumped Angel blood into Anna. Remember how they were experimenting on her?


I'm still against taking an EVA up there. There are too many risks. A single shot from that main attack could bring an EVA down. And too little to gain.

We can launch missiles at at, maybe even include some of that explosive anti-AT stuff from the last Angel the research team cooked up. If you guys want to guarantee it falls, that should do it.

After they choose a position, they craft a character. Combat might go the same as it does here, but that would put a very heavy strain on the GM.

I might be posting speculation and going over term origins in the meantime.

So... the angel under Vancouver...

Was it a result of the abiogenesis project and/or producing human-angel hybrids (Florence?)

The plot thickens.

This might all be caffeine and sleep deprived fueled speculation, so take this all with a grain of salt:

So, NERV Montreal's logo is: "Sic Nos Sic Sacra Tuemur," or , "Thus We Defend our Sacred Rights." Suitably NERVy, but its originally the motto of the McMahon family of the Thomond sept, a native British isles clan that was eventually defeated and emigrated to France. Not a lot to go on, but some information, and NERV is knowingly using the motto of a clan that was defeated but survived and had to become something else.

Things get more interesting when we take into account NERV Montreal's Longinus equivalent, the Crocea Mors, or "Yellow Death." According to legend, the Crocea Mors was Julius Caesar's sword that, during the invasion of Britain by the Romans, stuck in the British prince Nennius' shield. Nennius used the sword himself, killing everyone it struck, before he himself died of a head wound inflicted by Caesar during the same battle he took the Crocea Mors.

This is where I go officially off the deep end. The Crocea Mors is taken from the writings of Geoffrey of Monmouth, who also wrote the Prophetiae Merlini. Purely speculation, but as we haven't seen Montreal's Dead Sea Scrolls yet and we've already used some of Geoffrey's terminology, I'm willing to bet that this might be it. In the Prophetiae Merlini, two dragons fight, a red dragon, the British, and a white dragon, the Saxons, and Merlin predicts the Saxons win.

My theory is that whoever has our Dead Sea Scrolls equivalent reads that the Angels win and humans are doomed despite using Angel tech and weapons against them. NERV is an attempt to stall the invasion while EVAs, the Human Abiogenisis Project, being dicks to Anna, Vancouver Angels, and whatever the egg is are all attempts to elevate or merge humanity to Angel status. Ophelia, pre-head wound Major, and allies either disagreed or found another way.
