Yep, this is pretty much a war-zone in words.
Please let me know if my explaining of battles isn't working, because these posts don't seem to get nearly as many likes as my Techs...
(It is meant to be accompanied with the well-trained visual-spacial for a better experience.)
Well, your battles ARE a bit (really) long... how about making them shorter and a battle summary at the end that acts as a tl;dr?

Looks like you guys need help, even with our Kebabian techs. Since this is a huge threat to the base, I'm bringing out the ORBITAL MEGALASERS!

4x Megalasers have warped to DR-Alpha!

The sky seems to have disappeared as the Megalasers began to move to position...
Grouchy Gridlock: Woah, what happened? Why is it so dark up there..? Whatever...

4x Megalasers have began charging their MEGAWEAPON... ETA 3 turns

Grouchy Gridlock has smashed TAC HQ hard! Long-range radar down!

4x Megalasers are charging their MEGAWEAPON... ETA 2 turns

Other Kebabian Destructotanks saw the destruction and began to advance towards the Gridlock!

Grouchy Gridlock stomped 2x Destructotank! Both Destructotanks took heavy damage!

6x Destructotanks opened fire! Hit 68x Shotgun blasts! The Gridlock's right leg has been knocked out of alignment!

4x Megalasers are almost done charging... ETA 1 turn!

Grouchy Gridlock has fallen over! Heavy damage to hull and it can't move!

6x Destructotanks opened fire! Hit 12 Tank Cannons! Gridlock has sutained heavy hull damage and failure!

4x Megalasers have charged to maximum power and fired!!! Hit 4x Orbital Megalasers! Grouchy Gridlock has been completely obliterated by the blast! All bandits are running away!

DEFEND SUCCESSFUL!

@Legionite the rest is up to you.

Enemies have closed in!


I really need a Base Mapper...
Word of advice, having white words on a yellow (?) background is hard for people with colour deficiency to read. I cannot read the rectangles on the left and bottom :(

I thought we were on individual planets, and this was the Duck planet? Though I guess my lore still kind of follows the old belief of "all kingdoms are on the same planet" so I don't know...

These are newly constructed lasers and I thought DR-Alpha was the planet that all the kingdoms were on?

Wait, now I realize DR stands for Duck Republic...

The remnants of the Grouchy Gridlock Bandit Brigade is making a run for it!
The TAC Mech (Stringer MK8) took off, then landed right on the Bandit Scavenger!
Bandit Scavenger is now spinning around frantically!
ION CANNON has begun charging it's Megaweapon! Firing in 3 turns!

Turn 8
ION CANNON is charging it's Megaweapon! Firing in 2 turns!
TAC Hydra recovered from the power failure!
HFL Condor is recovering from overload!
The remnants of the Grouchy Gridlock Bandit Brigade is making a run for it! Escape in 2 Turns!
REM Mk4 Brawler Duo launched new rocket anchors to grab the Bandit Basher!
Mallet Tanks and Destructotanks are pursuing and attacking the Grouchy Gridlock Bandit Brigade!
Stringer MK8 fired at Bandit Scavenger point-blank with shotguns, exposing the cab!
Stringer MK8 grabbed and ripped a cab out of the Bandit Scavenger!!
Bandit Scavenger Exploded!

Turn 9
ION CANNON is charging it's Megaweapon! Firing in 1 turns!
The remnants of the Grouchy Gridlock Bandit Brigade is making a run for it! Escape in 1 Turn!
REM Mk4 Brawler Duo's rocket anchors locked onto Bandit Basher!
REM Mk4 Brawler Duo's rocket anchors are trying to pull the Bandit Basher, it it is too heavy!!
Stringer MK8 aimed and threw the cab at the Bandit Basher!!
An angry TAC Hydra fired at Bandit Basher! Hit 6xHelix Heavy Cannons, 2000xBee Judgement!
Mallet Tanks and Destructotanks fired at Bandit Basher!
Bandit Basher lost a bunch of blocks!

Turn 10
ION CANNON is charging it's Megaweapon! Firing in 0 turns!
The violently thrown cab smashed into Bandit Basher!
Bandit Basher was cut in half!
ION CANNON released a huge laser of shield destroying justice!
Miss!- Hits fuel tank debris from Bandit Basher instead.

Turn 11
Fuel Tanks exploded in a fiery inferno!
Bandit Basher was caught in the explosion!
Bandit Basher was completely destroyed!
Stringer MK8 driver(name not thought of yet): "That wasn't much for "the ultimate test"..."

End results:

So many blocks flung everywhere that it is numerically impossible to count. A huge mess of blocks from both sides were scattered about around TAC HQ...

Definitely worth happening with the huge block stock count boost, but not so much trauma-wise and for the vintage ION CANNON, which is now crippled to the point it can only be used as a surface weapon. To make matters worse, it cannot be repaired due to the requirement of now unobtainable parts (update to Terra Tech).

TAC Valhalla(Mothership) has lost contact with TAC HQ and the positions of all the Kiwis throughout the universe have all disappeared from the star-map, as the TAC H4wKnet radar collapsed into rubble.

The enemies were destroyed.

Current process- Repairing damage from battle by using spoils of war.
Legionite is now very skeptical of the TAC AI now...

The yellow parts actually have black text in them
Is the color green giving you problems?
I will make sure to use better colors in contrast to green from now on.

Wait, that's green?
...
Thanks by the way! Just adding a black border around the words or changing them to be black would be OK.

One of my radars at my home planet.
TAC has no intel on this "HoverTrans Station". Has it done something terrible enough for it to become a TAC matter?

And I only have a Base Gaurdian there along with the *unintelligible*.
And, I don't have any way to build defending techs.
@Legionite, should we instruct the base A.I. to self-destruct? There's vital information in there that we can't share.
I am confused.
Is an enemy attacking it--> Does it have defenses, if so, do you think it would be enough to defend?

Could we get the Interceptors there fast enough?
The HoverTrans will arrive in about 1 month.
If we redirect the TAC Mothership (which is far faster than the interceptors), it could get there in record time, but that would mean abandoning the Kebab forces to deal with the Kiwis alone...
If it is more important than destroying a kiwi base, then I guess.
It is also a great excuse to chicken out on the attack raid also, because the DMEA is there as well...

Just adding a black border around the words or changing them to be black would be OK.

An Interceptor is quite small compared to the Mothership, so we might be able to load a few of them into the hangar inside the Mothership and travel there. If not, we will have to get the Planet Eater to stop whatever it's doing right now and bring the Interceptors.

@Legionite, go here: https://forum.terratechgame.com/index.php?threads/i-m-r-s-a-p-t-m-w-t-t.13177/#post-87158
and see why no turret, could ever defeat the World Destroyer.
It's technically a TAC matter, so I need somebody else's permission to end it. Anybody could do it, if they wanted. I just forgot about that.
The HoverTrans, you know, the old hovership containing the WORLD DESTROYER?!?!(and the Battery Pack Battlers)
The Base Guardian, sucks, as it's meant to fight techs the size of the base/itself. So, it's very small(about the size of the REM Mk4 Brawler).
Wait, who's the DMEA?

Thing is...
Check out what happened lately!

Quick Recap of what happened in Kiwi Space Wars:
TAC Valhalla(TAC Mothership) repaired enough damage to become functional again
Markus One and Basic Base chattered away in various channels
Markus One and Basic Base settled and chattered away in Kiwi AI Channel
Received the mission report to go to attack/spy on Kiwi Base

TAC Valhalla was then in-route to kiwi base:
Markus One AI encountered DMEA
DMEA escaped termination by Markus One
Markus One was terminated by Kiwi Antivirus for being in Kiwi AI Channel
DMEA's wake of destruction was spotted by the crew

Now the TAC Mothership is slowly reversing to not catch the attention of the unaware behemoth directly ahead of it.
Your units are also supposedly there too
