Gifford National Forest clearing.
Everyone landed safely, and after Psych had had the beaver paté removed from his back and had finished being thrown around like a ragdoll by Vindicator, he looked at the map to work out where they were in relation to the old base, and exactly what was going on before the noisy interruption
"Its nothing to worry about Vin, we're in enough cover here for them not to see us just yet."
"Just time for me to fill you all in the on the rest of our mission. Infiltration Protocols blah blah blah remains our top priority, however there are a few other things that need to be addressed, and with that monotone munchbox on the bridge watching our every move I couldn't be 100% truthful in my initial briefing."
Psychout paused. He scanned the tree-line for prying eyes whilst the others brandished their weapons. There was no point in him doing the same, but he was also a little on edge, the helicopter had moved on but there would be more. He remembered that this was his first real mission in millennia and his first ever to non-Cybertron tech landscapes. It felt alien. And squishy. But, most of all invigorating.
He focused on the job in hand. "This is the only time this matter is to be discussed openly." He allowed that to sink in.
"This mission is considered to be compromised. Blackwind's actions on the Thanatos mean that Commander Shockwave does not have the control of the ship he believes he does, and Thunderwing is to be assumed an enemy of the same threat level as Starscream. Thunderwing is to be watched where possible and all actions that countermand Shockwave's orders are to be noted and reported to me at the earliest possible opportunity. Discretion and caution are advised, as Thunderwing is not currently aware that he is under suspicion, and it will remain that way until we hear otherwise from the Commander. Luckily for us, Thunderwing also appreciates the importance of the Protocols as much as Shockwave, and isn't likely to try and break cover, so this shouldn't affect us in this initial part of the mission.
"This is your one and only opportunity to question me on this issue before we begin the mission, so think carefully..."
When you are sure you are satisfied, you have your tasks. Darkfire, you are on aerial recon. I want a rough idea of numbers, technology level and layout of the military base at the foot of the mountain, as well as any other military equipment in the surrounding areas and its movements. After that you are to patrol the region for potential Cybertronian interference until we are able to clear you for landing within the base itself. Vindicator, same as Darkfire from ground level, beginning in the militarised zone and fanning outwards towards the civilian sector, making a note of any variation in military insignia and identifications for later use. After your full sweep is done, try and locate us some caves or some shelter for us to use as an outpost until we are established in the military camp, then link up with Jaws and I and we will move out to to gain access to the old base. Remember, we are in Phase 1 - remain in your altmodes at all times when not in the outpost.
"Jaws, we're going to go get a coffee.... Whatever that is. I call shotgun!"
