OOC: Yay unanimous posting! Anyways, going to assumed all your characters pulled on to the transport with your characters respective rides even if you didn't. If you want more intimate time with your steeds do a flashback title and do so during the ride planet side. When two other members of the 9th saw that no one else was taking advantage of the attack bike, they decided to use the privilege at hand and got into the vehicle. They promptly drove it to the other thunderhawk at the same time as the last members boarded the one with Sergeant Lonyu in it. As the front hatch closed on the thunderhawks, Sergeant Lonyu's voice could be heard. "Get us on the planet now! We've not got all day!" The pilots grumbled some obscenities, but the two thunderhawk transporters lifted off none the less, flying through the atmospheric shields at the end of the hanger. It's a shame that the transports did not have any windows in the cargo compartment, as outside was a sight that would impress the most stoic of imperial commanders. Swarms of transports left hundreds of large ships at once, all rushing to claim the first prize of the most kills planetfall or a particularly valuable target's head. Along with the escort fighters next to them, the countless transporter ships rushed the planet, heading to different landing zones all across the blue sphere below. But a particularly fast column of large transporters shot at the planet like bullet train, fast even by the standards of the White Scars legion. At the forefront of this literal spear of transport were the ships that came from the Gloria-Class Battleship Swordstorm. It was this column that the two transports from the Spear of Truth fell into a part of. As one it drove into the planet's atmosphere, and into the massive barrage of missiles, flak guns and other munitions the orks below shot into the air. A massive chorus of air to ground missiles, twin link heavy bolter fire, lascannons and seemingly every weapon in the Imperium's arsenal made their reply towards the orks on the ground. The 9th could feel the transporter rock as flak explosions occurred near it. It shook as though it was a sea vessel caught in a storm as it flew into evasive maneuvers, dodging not only the anti air fire but also the exploding wreckage of those more unfortunate or with less skilled pilots than theirs. However, whenever those near the pilots who can hear the local vox channels heard not panic or cries for help, but of joyous laughter and taunts at both the enemy and allies alike. Death threats and battle cries were shouted at the enemy while challenges and jeers at who would get the first and most kills at the allies beckoned the 9th to the surface. Suddenly one of the pilots yelled out. "Opening the hatch now! If we don't drop you boys here you'll be way behind the recruits from the other Ordu!" Sergeant Lonyu nodded and revved the engine of his legionnaire bike, pulling out his chainsword in the process. "DO IT!" The front hatch opened, and light from the planet's sun shined through. Instantly the sounds of battle outside magnified tenfold as the Tur (order in the transport's randomized more or less) who was out in the front, could see hundreds of other recruits on scout bikes rushing forward around 200 feet directly below them towards the flank of a sea of green in front of them. The flat plains of the ork's location made it ideal for the White Scar's warfare tactics. It seems certain Ordu pulled out all the stops in order to give their recruits an advantage in the hunt for Fastasped, as only a locator beacon with a teleporter could get troops down on the ground that fast. As Tur looked up he could see the Khagan, Jaghatai Khan, though he was hundreds of miles away, clearly due to his massive custom built assault bike. It had to have been the size of a large predator tank, maybe even bigger than a baneblade. Though there had to be a least a hundred recruits charging forward directly below them, the main line made the recruits line look like a tiny ripple in a small pond to a tidal wave. The first line of the main line closed within bolter distance, and a thousand orks instantly found death as a symphony of bolter fire and grenade launchers opened up. The Khagan didn't even slowed down as he crashed into a rather large group of nobs, grinding them to a meat pile under his tracks and continuing straight through the horde like a hot knife through butter, his loyal Keshig next to him. But Tur couldn't relish in this view, as the light within the cargo compartment had turned green and the pilots were screaming "GO GO GO!" His bike revved and sped into the open air, free falling down into the midst of the charging recruits. The rest of his squad followed quickly, able to take in the view that was his alone a moment ago. Though the fall was higher than the usual deployment height, all the members of the thunderhawk landed without more than one or two strong bounce and sped into the same direction as the rest of the recruits. Sergeant Lonyu screamed over the roar of a hundred scout bikes and countless air crafts above, "Forward! Show them the speed that is Storm Ordu!" He raced towards the line of orks in front of him. As the rest of those in the same thunderhawk took notice and attempted to regroup with both the Sergeant and the other thunderhawks, a foreign voice came through the local vox in their scout armor. "Out of the way children! Fastasped's head belongs to the Plain Steppes Ordu!" A squad of scouts sped by them, several of which made challenging gestures at the 9th's members. "Not if we have anything to say about it! Rushing Tide Ordu's taking that greenskin's head!" A squadron of land speeders flew past overhead, shooting into the ork lines already. It seems the other Ordu really wants the honors that'll come with Fastasped's head as well, enough to give their recruits non-standard-recruit equipment and vehicles to play with. OOC: You can all start narrating your characters actions in the transport right before the drop, but you don't have to (you can start on the ground if you want as well, just want to give you a chance to react to the epicness around). Everyone is currently on the ground, though half the squad (non player controlled) is separated from your guys and you guys don't know where they are, the orks are directly in front of you, with the other recruits and the Sergeant charging them.
