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. 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.”

"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.”

"Every surge of new power makes is too quickly adjusted too, making it easy to forget what we had to subsist on previously," Divebomb ruminated as he guided the ship along its plotted course.

"Yeh. Well. We got a ways to before we can make enough of that stuff to get 'used' to it. I've stashed away my last tankful for an emergency. Hopefully we'll be able to get crankin' on a new batch fraggin' quick," Tantrum added.

Divebomb guided the shuttle to the forested area that Razorclaw had indicated and began to angle downward.

"Where's that shuttle full of diggin' supplies you ordered?" Tantrum grunted, looking over at Divebomb. The Predacon Aerial Specialist checked the ping of the support shuttle. It wasn't far.

"Right where it should be, Tantrum. Don't blow a servo. Engaging landing sequence."

The tiger put a digit to his chin and squinted his optics in thought. Did he actually? “Oh yeah, now I remember!” Wow, that was one hell of a drug.” He racked his memory again, but it wasn’t coming back to him clearly enough. What DID come back to his mind was that one scene from Spongebob, when Squidward threw his clarinet straight outta the darn window. That was funny stuff.

Divebomb wrote:"Every surge of new power makes is too quickly adjusted too, making it easy to forget what we had to subsist on previously."

“Gee, Divebomb, good job cracking open the thesaurus for that big word, “subsist”. Makes you look real snazzy and smart, don’t it? Pfeh.”

He awaited the moment he could get off the shuttle, so he wouldn’t have to necessarily be jam-packed with these other dudes.

Divebomb quirked a barely noticeable eyebrow ridge in Rampage's direction.

"It makes me useful is what it does," Divebomb sighed. "We can't all spend our functioning vorns doing little more than watching holovids and 'tee-vee'."

The shuttle came to a reasonably soft landing. Divebo,b engaged the clamps, just in case the surface was not as sturdy as it seemed.

"And we're here."
