Several hours earlier......
Somewhere in the Italian Alps;
High above the Italian Alps, a pilot soared through the sky mounted on a silver dragon, like a god. Gliding through the uper atmosphere, he and his steed were as one. Krrch~ "This is Ghostrider to static, do you copy?"
~"Copy Ghostrider, Static is on location. I have eyes on the goal, repeat, I have solid visual, marking beacon, mission status is November."
~"Ghostrider copies, I have beacon, coordinates tango 65 Lima. cloud 1, you are clear to drop your package, let it rain."
~ "Cloud 1 copies, approach in 15 seconds, forecast is rain with a chance of Thunder, good hunting boys, bring em back alive."
As Ghostrider provided escort, the cargo bay of a modified AC130 opened up, releasing 10 tons of combat mecha, along with a squadron of Joes equipped with Zeta rocket packs. They went into free fall for several seconds before activating the Zeta's thrusters and forming up into combat formation. The mecha, equipped with oversized SOFTAPS used stabilizers to control it's decent to the drop zone. On the ground, Alpine and his mountain assault team moved into position. Following up on satalite intel, Alpine had led a team into the Italian Alps to locate an iron Grenadier mountain stronghold. It had been several days of hard climbing, but they found the base, and called in for a Joe assault team to back them up.
Their mission was to find and rescue two Action Force Operatives that were captured after a recent battle with the I.G.s. Satcom was able to track the helicopter that the prisoners were being transported in to the Italian Alps. After that, Satcom lost the bird, and the Joes sent a mountain unit to the last known location. Finding the base was a miracle in itself, taking this stronghold would be a whole different matter.
Alpine~"Static to Ghostrider, thanks for dropping off the kids, I'll have them home by dark." Alpine put away his Sat phone and turned to Big Ben, "It's time for some payback Ben."
Big Ben~"You know, I vaulenteered for this mission because Eagle and I were in the same S.A.S. unit. I know the Joes will do their best, but....the odds are against us. If we fail, I want you know..."
Alpine~ "Can that shit Ben, we will bring back Eagle and Jammer. I know what its like to lose a teammate, we all do."
a light snow drift enveloped the two men, and when it passed, Kamakura stood before them as if out of thin air. "Bravo team is on the ground, we need to move now Alpine."
Within the Iron Grenadier stronghold;
Aries made his way down to Alchemist's lab and arriving at door, he entered the decontamination chamber. Hitting a large red button activated several spray nozzles. He entered the lab. Alchemist seemed unaware of his presence. Aries cleared his throat, "How is it coming along? Destro expects a report within forty eight ours."
Alchemist~ "Breaking a man's mind requires patience Aries, the mind is a delicate and complex thing. Hmmm, this serum that the Red Shadows provided us with is not having the results I desired. The subjects are highly responsive to suggestive direction, but it hampers cognitive recollection. In other words, we can make them think whatever we want them to, but we can't make them talk."
Aries~ "So.... we gave the Shadows millions of dollars worth of weapons for nothing. Perhaps I can make them talk, we must find out how much Action Force knows about our operations, and whether or not the Joes are involved. Destro demands it."
Alchemist~ "You are short sighted for a mountain man, with this formula, we can create an army of fanatical followers within a short time. As for these two, I have other tricks up my sleeve I just need more time. Perhaps if I use a multi step approach, applying the Red Shadow serum with..." They were interrupted by static from Aries comm unit.
Krrch~"Commander Aries, we just picked low level energy signals from half a click away. It may have been a burst transmission sir, please advise."
Aries answered, "Fire up the VTOL for an overflight, and prepare the defenses, assume that we are under imminent threat of attack. You see Alchemist, we are out of time, I will hold them off as long as I can, just do your job!
Jungles of Myanmar; southwest of Thai border
In the sweltering Jungles of Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, the villagers have many stories of angry spirits, ghosts that rise from the grave and wander the forest in search of vengeance. What walked through the Jungle now was like their worst nightmares come to life. Men with cold hearts and black deeds on their mind, leaving a path of death behind them and followed by lifeless machines built only to kill.
The Cobra assault group moved in formation through the Jungle, an army of angry evil spirits. Shadow Tracker took the center, leading the hunt. All around him in a wide phalanx, Jungle-Vipers moved silently, almost invisibly. Coil Crusher and a team of Range vipers guarded the flanks and behind them all, moving slowly and patiently, a squadron of Jungle Bats marched forward scanning the forest for enemy heat signatures.
A jungle Viper on the forward right gave a hand signal which was quickly passed down to the entire squad. Instantly, they became part of the forest, leaves and branches, nothing more. The Jungle viper whispered into his comm, "Movement on the right, visual in three...two.." A Tiger then passed through the Jungle, and smelling evil in the air, he quickly moved on.
Shadow tracker gave the signal to move forward again. After several hours of walking, Shadow Tracker slowly drew an arrow from it's quiver and nocked it to his bow. "Viper 3, two contacts 1 o'clock, low. I'll take first right, you take 2 left." The bow flexed without so much as whisper, and he let fly an arrow into the thick brush far ahead. There was a gasp of air, and then silence again. The Jungle Viper fired his suppressed rifle and dropped the second man as he started to run.
A few yards down the path they came across what they had shot at, two men dressed in rags. One lying on his back with an arrow through his larynx, the other man minus one head. Shadow Tracker recovered his arrow and examined the body. At first glance it looked like a common local, until they found a skull and crossbones tattooed on the inside of both men's left arms. It was the mark of the Red Shadows. The men were scouts doing a recon of the area, and they would soon be missed.
Shadow Tracker~ "We have less than two hours to reach the Red Shadows base. They will most likely have more scouts, and maybe infra red cameras. We are close now"
Red Shadow base;
The red Shadow's Jungle base was a decent sized complex of small buildings and underground bunkers. At the center of the compound was a strange maze of trenches and foxholes dug 10 feet into the ground. Next to this maze, 20 men stood in line shoulder to shoulder. They were barefoot and shirt-less, wearing only plain black pants tied at the waist with a rope. They were surrounded by Red Shadow gaurds. The shirtless men were looking up at a raised platform holding several Officers.
The Black Major looked down at them from his platform, Red Laser and the Jackal at his side. He looked at the Jackal and nodded. The Jackal began to speak, "Neophytes, you have been training here at this facility for 6 months.During that time, you have pushed harder and farther than ever before, forced to expand the limits of your mind and body, forced to test the extent of your devotion. All of your raining has been for this moment, for today, you will run the Blood Gauntlet.
Jackal paused for effect, then continued, "Many of you will die running this Gauntlet. These trenches and completely covered in traps and obstacals designed to test your Speed, reflexes, strength, stamina, agility, and most importantly, your mind. Every step could mean your death. Only the best of you will emerge alive, and only those who survive will receive the honor of donning the Red Jacket and helmet of the Red Shadows!"
The men gave a shout in unison, and turned to face their deaths and their glory. Red Laser gave the signal, "Begin!" The men broke out into a run and entered the Gauntlet, immediately men began to die and the screams of pain could be heard. Men were disemboweled, decapitated, crushed, burned, skewered. As the Black Major looked on, enjoying the show with great pride, a Red Shadow Officer stepped up to the podium and whispered to Jackal. The Jackal quietly approached the Major, "Sir, please forgive me, I know how much you love watching the Gauntlet, however, I believe we have a serious problem."
