"We wouldn't want him getting complacent, would we?" FTE replies, "smiling" at Angel. "But I think giant piles of money and the ability to uplift an entire planet's technological baseline is pretty good consolation."

Garrett nods. "The EMP should fry any they have in the air, and if they try to put any others up, well, we'll be cloaked and that should give us time to get eyes on and take them down."
"Only if we get them on their way up," Arketta says. "Once they're up there, spotting them will be almost impossible."
Ngawai smirks at Angel. "Sounds like a challenge." She turns to FTE. "Heard about your shot at the ambush from Arlana. You gunning to take over Angel's spot as top shot?"

Zaef grimaces as a few stories he's heard about desperate pirates and overloaded drive cores invite themselves into his head. Until we learn where their armory is located, nothing we can do about it.

"In that case, we should be prepare for drone use, as well. They're definitely something a well-supplied unit would have, and we shouldn't count on ignorance or...personal distaste to keep them from showing up."

Ana walks, her expression still thoughtful - the question of just how easily the one tablet was shattered weighing on her mind. Was it an element of the character of the man who held it? That he had given it willingly? Had some critical threshold been crossed, and the power of the tablets was weakening? Or perhaps each individual stone had it's own strength, and this one was merely weak - like links in a poorly forged chain.

She wished she knew the stones better. And at the same time, she realized just how much she missed the most difficult part of her day being how to figure out how to stab an arrogant nobleman where he would be unable to grip his sword, but in time make a full recovery. Or how to make such a stab instantly fatal, if that was the commission.

"The eyes."

Angel nods at Zaef's question. "From what Garrett and I hit yesterday, stickbombs, beamers and chamakanas. They had a couple spare sunmines too, at at least one cogitator. So...I'd assume pretty much anything a heavily supplied infantry unit would have. Plus it's Afghanistan. The old man's not dumb enough to blow up his own compound, but all you need is a true believer or two."

Not just blind, but cut them off from reinforcements. Can't call the cops on the take. Good move.

"What sort of Imperial gear are we prepping for, besides sensors?" Zaef asks. "We know they have access to quite the arsenal."

"Sounds good to me," Luis says. "Blind their sensors, bow them in, and roll them up before they make more trouble. Do we know any places we anticipate to have extra trouble, or do we just roll in hard and hit it as we find it?"

Ngawai nods. "After that, we move in as four pairs, sweep and clear the exterior ring, and then move in to clear the interior ring and square."
"We blind them, bottle them up, and then clear everything out," Garrett summarizes. "Questions?"

"We're hitting Wazir and his compound tonight," Garrett says. "Clean sweep." He swipes something from his vox to everyone else. "That's the partial holomap from Ngawai's walk through." Everyone pulls the map up on their respective voxes - clipped, implanted, or integral. It shows two circles of structures surrounding a central market - both a good setup for a community center and a highly defensible position. "They learned from someone - probably the Imperials through China - how to detect cloaked armor, so we'll be rolling a bit harder than normal."
"They had a recording of Garrett and me on our sneak-and-peek, so we'll be taking care of that with an EMP beforehand," Ngawai says. "That going to be a problem, Front Toward Enemy?"
