The Congo – Fire Down Below

The Democratic Republic of the Congo, also known simply as the Congo, is the southernmost country in Central Africa. It is also the second largest country in that region by area and the eleventh largest in the world. With a population of over 78 million, the Congo is the fourth most populated country in Africa and the sixteenth most populated in the entire world. It is here that the Predacons and a contingent of vehicon miners have been sent to extract a large deposit of Ore-13, also known as Ultra Energon. The site of the deposit is underground near Mount Nyiragongo, an active stratovolcano with an elevation of over 11,000 feet in the Virunga Mountains. The main crater is about two kilometers wide and contains a lava lake, which has at times been the most voluminous known lava lake in history. Numerous underground lava rivers stretch out beneath the surface of the surrounding forest which will make extracting the Ore-13 more difficult, not to mention very dangerous.

The shuttle broke through the clouds over the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Greenery stretched out for miles in every direction with only the Virunga Mountains breaking up the forested landscape in the distance. It was there that Mount Nyiragongo was situated, a gentle wave of smoke slowly rising from the crater.

“There,” Razorclaw pointed with one clawed actuator. “That’s the volcano, Divebomb. The Ore-13 deposit should be somewhere on the opposite side. It’s underground so you won’t see it. The coordinates I previously inputted into the navicomputer will guide you. Take us carefully over the mountain and set us down in the forest a few kilometers from the volcano.”

"My apologies, my lord. Indeed, it does appear to be the most energy-rich. And the most volatile," Divebomb said, buckling slightly at their leader's jab at his memory. As if he were some unreliable Stunticon glitch.

“There. That’s the volcano, Divebomb. The Ore-13 deposit should be somewhere on the opposite side. It’s underground so you won’t see it.

"Following provided coordinates. The extraction equipment I requisitioned is following us down on a Vehicon-piloted supply shuttle," Divebomb reported.

"Looks like my kinda terrain," Tantrum huffed as he looked through the cabin windows. "'Volatile', heh."

“Hehehe, and here I was thinking that Otis lived on a barnyard, not on some giant flaming mountain!” Rampage chuckled in his seat, near Tantrum’s own. To be fair, the view they were seeing on the displays was pretty impressive.

“This Ore-13 stuff, is it some kind of energon that turns you super saiyan? Or maybe it gives you another evolution? ‘Cause that’d be pretty cool to have around.”

Headstrong too was observing the area they were flying towards through the shuttle’s cabin windows. Seeing something with your own optics always beat staring at monitors. Still, given his relatively poor eyesight for a Cybertronian, most of the terrain appeared to him roughly as they did to a human. Masses of changing colors allowing him to spot different tree masses from grass fields and such but not too much of details.

”Rampage please.” Headstrong snorted, ”You had your tank full of Ore-13 for the Fallen campaign. Your memory is as short as your attention span.”
