TAC Ragnarök is now complete!
Conquerer AI was assigned to the ship for the time being
Conquerer AI: I admire this ship. It has the power of a conquerer's might!

The Kebab Kingdom's Planet Eater happily leaves the planet with a huge mountain load of Plasmite.

TAC also has a large amount of resources to build with, although the mech now needs important maintenance, so a trip back home is required to continue building Techs.

The Kiwis have noticed the mining site!

(New format for TAC battles- Test one)
Please post feedback

Red- Enemy
Dark Red- Ranged explosive attack
Light Blue- Shields
Dark Blue- Movement
Pink color thing- Ramming/Collision/Physical
Grey- Armor/Defense maneuver
Purple- Energy Related
Dark Purple- Bad stuff
Green- Good/Ally

Orange- Fiery explosion/attack

Battle Begin!
TAC Ragnarök is now active!
*The massive dreadnaught looms over the mines, as well as all its enemies, causing them to think twice before attacking*

Angry Kiwi fighter swarm is closing in!
Other TAC ships went into the mines to hide from the invasion.
TAC Ragnarök is readying its powerful Point-Defense Broadsides!

Kiwi fighter swarm is close!
The Kiwis launched a series of Cruise Missiles and Planwreckers!
TAC Ragnarök attempted to intercept the incoming attack!! 78% successful!
The remaining missiles hit the TAC Ragnarök, causing moderate damage to Left Broadsides!

The following Kiwi Bombers unleashed a whole swarm of Megaton shells!
TAC Ragnarök: Bad-S Anti-Smalls-> Mega Intercept - Any huge shells can be intercepted with incredible ease by this craft's Point-Defense Systems.
TAC Ragnarök attempted to intercept the incoming attack!! 100% Successful!

TAC Ragnarök fired its Point-Defense Broadsides[Flak mode] at Kiwi Fighters!
Massive damage done to Kiwi Fighters! 8% left operational!
The Kiwi Bombers chickened out and escaped the battlefield!
A Kiwi Mining Drill Tech appeared out of a bunch of rocks nearby!
Kiwi Mining Drill Tech flew at TAC Ragnarök!

TAC Ragnarök dodge failure- Too Slow
A Kiwi Mining Drill Tech rammed into TAC Ragnarök!
significant damage done to Lower Right Broadsides! Part disabled!
TAC Ragnarök unleashed a huge revenge missile salvo onto the Kiwi Mining Drill Tech, completely destroying its shields!

TAC Ragnarök proceeded to shut off its main planetary hover systems to intentionally CRUSH the enemy Kiwi Mining Drill Tech below it!
The enemy Tech exploded!
Moderate damage done to lower bombardment platform section.
Planet's surface is now partially unstablized (cracks everywhere) and prone to exploding
Markus One AI: Let's escape before the planet explodes!
*TAC ships evacuate the planet*

Victory!
Various blocks obtained from enemy Kiwis, although they now know of the dreadnaught, and are now probably plotting to take it down somehow...

Meanwhile, in orbit...

Captain Khora: This is quite boring. *Fiddles with a pen*

Sensors technician: Sir! I'm detecting multiple enemy contacts advancing towards our allies, down on the planet!

Captain Khora: *Drops pen* Can we intercept?

Sensors technician: No sir, we're too far away

Everyone looks out the windows at the planet's surface, which was being lit up by gunfire. They continue watching until the battle ends.

Captain Khora: Wow, the Ragnarök just crushed a Kiwi tech.

Communications technician: Sir, our allies are coming up. They say the planet's destabilizing.

Captain Khora: OK, recall our drones from the surface. We will rendezvous with our allies in space.


.................
The Scorpion carrier is now available for use. It has many drones which can be refitted for different uses. It doesn't have many weapons besides its railgun turrets, the main plasma cannons and a few missiles, but has strong PD systems and, of course, drones.

The Kebab Planet Eater has returned to DR-Alpha to split the Plasmite load with the Coalition.
Here are the splits:

Kebab Kingdom - 30%
TAC - 30%
Silver Fleet Systems - 20%
Duck Republic - 20%
Why not 25% each?

Anyway, thanks.

(don't pay attention to this) Didn't you cancel the alliance?

suggestion for detecting the juicers, is explosion(and large vibration/quake) detectors, as they tend to fire a lot while travelling (along with a large number of them in very long skirmish lines)
while the bertha lattice tech looks somewhat similar to the juicers, it misses out on the extreme range of the juicers due to their angled chassis and it having a flat chassis

Lately, a large band of Space Pirates have been building up in number due the amount of conflict going around.

While the kingdoms were distracted, a group of space pirates, formed by the remaining Rogue Kiwis (not to be confused with the actual Kiwis) from the kiwi wars to gather the remains of whatever debris the Kiwis left behind, and began building numerous bases throughout the stars, and committing to all future corruption of the Terra Tech system.

Each time the Lemons and Kebabs fought, the Rogue Kiwis managed to influence a number of civilians from numerous kingdoms to their sides in all of the confusion and conflict, as well as swaying numberless bandits and pirates to their side.

Just recently a few days ago, they created the United Rogue Faction. (or just rogue kiwis for short)

The corruption grows...

The DMEA is starting to take aggressive action again.

Red- Enemy
Dark Red- Ranged explosive attack
Light Blue- Shields
Dark Blue- Movement
Pink color thing- Ramming/Collision/Physical
Grey- Armor/Defense maneuver/non-Explosive Attack
Purple- Energy Related
Dark Purple- Bad stuff
Green- Good/Ally

Orange- Fiery explosion/attack

A DMEA minion has come too close to a TAC freighter!
TAC freighter is on high alert!

The DMEA minion is at RAMMING SPEED! ETA 1 Turn!

The DMEA minion is at RAMMING SPEED! ETA o Turns!
TAC freighter fired it's Heavy Burst Guns! Minor damage inflicted.
The DMEA minion RAMMED into the TAC freighter!
Massive Damage! TAC freighter's plasmite load reacted violently to the collision, exploding in the process!
The DMEA minion took moderate frontal damage.

TAC freighter was Completely Destroyed!

Results:
TAC plasmite was intercepted on-route to the nearby Spec ops
TAC freighter was Completely Destroyed!

DMEA is now at war with TAC

Markus One AI: This is bad. They have come to strike back in greater power...
DME AI: HA! I built a huge army right under your nose! Legionite is naive!!!
Legionite: I heard that. I will make sure yOU-

Basic Base AI: BASE IS UNDER ATTAAAAACK!!!
TAC HQ is Under Siege

A huge swarm of Rogue Kiwi fighters swarm overhead, causing all TAC citizens to retreat to the safety of the military bunkers underground the sprawling metropolis.

Legionite: Um, this is bad, very bad.
Horace Everest: No derp sherlock.

The TAC perimeter defences were thoroughly busy firing away at the invaders, who showed extreme skill in piloting their fighter Techs. The enemies were focusing on the new Omega Juicer research project that was underway.

Basic Base AI: I happen to have my hands full, can anyone please help?!?!

The TAC Ragnarök appeared from space overhead the swarm of Rogue Kiwis, and they very quickly dissipated away from the base and massive dreadnaught.
All of the Kiwis jumped away, as they managed to somehow stuff jump drives on their fighters for hit and run attacks. None of them were shot down.


Basic Base AI: Crisis averted! That was painful to deal with. I couldn't even shoot one down! What do they have on those things?!

The once docile Omega Juicer got hit by a single cruise missile on the top (the only weak spot), sending it into a uncontrolled rampage as it violently freed itself from it's restraints.

ALL AI: Oh tonytonytonytonytonytonytonytony!!!

The Omega Juicer then reversed into the prototype Bertha Lattice artillery, completely tearing it into many pieces. The resulting explosion rocked the whole city and toppled a skyscraper(saved by a bunch of space tugs).
It was seemingly unaffected by the numerous attacks from the defense turrets and the dreadnaught's onslaught overhead.
The ION CANNON also seemed to have hit spot on, but it didn't actually shut off the beast's shields.
The wild titan of a beast broke a huge gap through the perimeter wall and ran back into the wilderness, leaving a trail of Hawkeye parts in it's wake.

All the smaller TAC space combat vessels arrived too late to respond to the attack.

Savior AI: The Omega juicer is loose! I repeat! The Omega juicer is loose!

How did the Rogue Kiwis know of the top-secret research operation?
