Skywarp received a response from Thundercracker within a few astroseconds of informing him of his current situation. >>”I read you, ‘Cracker. Will do.”<< The teleporter than turned to face Nightraven who had expressed her concerns on how they would get so many wounded away from the volcano in time. It was definitely a thought that had crossed the prankster’s mind, as well. Astrotrain was a viable option as he was a military transport, but unfortunately the triplechanger was already airborne and rocketing away from the mountain. Ramplate then interjected his opinion before transforming into a modified tank mode capable of carrying some of the wounded.
“I agree, as well,” Skywarp replied, looking at Nightraven. “Thundercracker instructed me to stay out of sight until command orders a retreat. There’s an Autobot sniper nearby, so we need to be careful. As for how we will get out of here, I know the Stunticons have a ship in orbit that they bounced to earlier. That will most likely be how we will all escape the eruption. Until then, let’s load Helly onto Ramplate and get as far away from the mountain as possible.”
Skywarp took the liberty of lifting up Hellion and placing her onto Ramplate’s modified tank form. He then did the same for the stasis-locked Snowcap. Once that was done, the black and purple seeker took the lead, guiding Nightraven and the others he had evacuated further down the mountain towards the tree line where they would find cover from the Autobot sniper’s attacks. Along the way, they encountered Long Haul who was lying deactivated against a large rock. ‘Warp quickly gathered up the Construction transport and placed him onto Ramplate, as well, before continuing onward towards the forest.
Smokescreen sped down the mountain side as Hardhead followed at a distance behind him. The diversion expert had the advantage of his vehicle form, which allowed him to travel faster than his larger green comrade. “You all right back there, big guy?!”
“Never better, Smokey!” The veteran soldier yelled back as he trudged down the mountain on foot, carrying Prowl over one shoulder. His back was aching a bit from where the turret was destroyed earlier by Blitzwing. Of course, it was nothing Hardhead couldn’t persevere through. He was big and tough and not one to let a little bit of pain get in the way of what needed to be done. Hell, even a lot of pain wouldn't stop him. "I'll catch up soon. Don't worry about me!"
“Glad to hear it!” Smokescreen responded back as he reached the spot outside the interference perimeter where First Aid was waiting. Axle and Hot Spot were already gone, most likely up to the Protectobot’s ship in orbit. Smokey stopped and transformed back to robot mode, forcing his panels and gears to shift into their proper positions. The red and blue racer then stumbled forward, reaching out to First Aid for support. Even though the energon leak had been previously patched, the battle damage Smokey’s body had sustained was still taking a toll on his overall systems. If he didn’t get to a CR chamber soon, he’d end up in stasis lock.
“Hardhead is not far behind me. He’s carrying Prowl, which is slowing him down some,” Smokescreen alerted First Aid. “The rest should get here soon, as well.”
