Colgar6 bites down hard on his lip as he barrel rolls and drifts his ship three cycles to starboard, bringing him to a perfect firing position on Skywalker. He pulls the Rail Gun trigger sending 15 high velocity rounds at his opponent as he thumbs the missile release sending a deadly Fire and Forget projectile as well.
Two of the rounds are on target and one punches through Skywalkers shield smashing into the X Wing’s Engine. Walker throws his ship to the left and right to avoid the missile. The ship is moves off its course and loses its attack vector but he avoids the worse of the impact as the proximity detonator goes off. A near miss but none the less shrapnel blasts through the fighters canopy wounding the pilot. Skywalker is knocked unconscious. His ship slide slips 5 cycles to starboard as it drifts away.
Unfortunately Colgar6’s attack has brought him In Sight of the remaining X Wing. The viscous pilot pulls his stick to the left and then the right, barrel rolling into a firing position on the Viper pilot. Jerking trigger the fires eight Pulse Cannon rounds at Colgar6. Two are on target and both pass through Colgar’s shields. One round smashes his Engine, reducing his velocity to 3 cycles and the other damages his Comms Link.
Apollo calmly announces over the radio, “Da Gobbo stay on me. We’re going in.”
Both ships side slip two cycles to starboard followed by two cycles forward, brining X Wings In Sight and dogfighting range.
“Hold on Colgar” Da Gobbo shouts over the radio as he barrel rolls his fighter forward two cycles and then he side slips to the right and left to rub off speed. As he moves in for the kill he notices that Colgar6’s comms array is damage. He releases 15 Rail Gun runs but holds back on firing a missile. Two of the Rail Gun rounds are on target but both are stopped by the X Wings Shields.
The X Wing pilot reacts, firing 8 Pulse Cannon rounds at Da Gobbo. One is on target and penetrates Da Gobbo’s shields. The round slams deep into the Viper disabling its shields.
Cooly Apollo moves forward 3 cycles and then side slips 1 cycle to port. He is in no danger of hitting Colgar and at point blank range he activates both triggers firing 15 Rail Gun rounds and a Fire and Forget missile at the rebel. One of the Rail Gun rounds is on target and penetrates the X Wings shields, damaging its Comms Link. With no time to react, the X Wing pilot cannot evade the Fire and Forget missile. It slams into his ship damaging its Engine and Shields. Unbelievably the air frame of the stricken ship holds together as its velocity slows to 3 cycles from the damaged engine.
Old Sarge opens up the throttle and pushes his Viper to 4 cycles. Unfortunately it isn’t fast enough for him to get In Sight of any opposition. He moves forward 4 cycles and turns one aspect to port.
With his engine damaged the Addict’s maximum velocity is 3 cycles. He moves forward 3 cycles and turns 1 aspect to starboard to try to get a better angle of attack for his missiles, should any of the opposition come into range.
Apollo surveys the battlefield. “This dogfight isn’t over yet,” he thinks to himself.
