*Mike kept firing, he was worried, they just kept coming, not the dozens like had chased them down from up north, but hundreds, maybe thousands. The minigun was out and soon he would be out too, and they just kept coming.*
Kunikida radioed Kelly: We're almost out of amo, Kelly, and there's still a hell of a lot of them almost on us.
Kelly: Just stay on the avenue, trust me, help is almost there.
Kunikida: The whole base couldn't hold this many back, They've never brought a force this big, what the hell did those two get into?
*Mike's cannon ran out of amo, he looked around at Selene, she was holding tight to the minigun to keep from being thrown off the truck as Akira drove like a madman, dodging and slamming through debris, trying to stay ahead of the hoard of demons. Mike pulled his axe off his back. He wouldn't let the monsters at his friends, it didn't matter if there were a thousand........ ten thousand, he would stop them, one at a time if he had to. Mike swung the big axe, slicing two of the flying demons from the air. Two blue streaks passed Mike and two demons fell. Mike smiled, so his Kitsune Hime was with him, they would make this last stand together. Mike roared his defiance to the hoard of monsters. He was answered by the scream of thousands of bullets streaming by the truck. Four hummvee's with mounted miniguns had joined them.*
Kunikida: Four Miniguns?? Kelly, that isn't enough to put a dent in them.
Kelly: Hang in there, we're buying you time, you're almost there.
Akira: What...... is that??
*Ahead on each side of the avenue was a large tank chassis, but instead of a gun turret, there was a large rectangular block raised above the tracks. The hummvee's raced ahead around the tanks, and as the truck drove between the two there was a horrendous roar that lasted several seconds. It looked like a giant broom swept down the avenue as everything for hundreds of meters was swept away. even as the sound died, the rectangular blocks were ejected to the side of the tanks, and a second block was loaded from trucks behind the tanks. In less than half a minute, the roar was repeated, now there was nothing left standing in the avenue, as far as Mike could see.*
Kunikida: Metalstorm! I've read the theory..... but.....
Akira: Ya, I've heard rumors, but I didn't know they were working on one this big.
((The metalstorm system is a stack of 13mm gun barrels, 50 high and 150 wide. Each barrel is loaded with 20 electrically fired rounds. All rounds can be fired in less than 3 seconds. The theoretical firing rate would be in excess of 3 million rounds per minute. It takes the chassis from a 70 ton M1A1 tank with heavy outrigger beams to the rear to handle the recoil. the outriggers are also used as loading ramps. The entire block of preloaded barrels is replaced to reload the system. The support trucks carry four reloads each. Though mine is imaginary, this is a real and practical technology. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 8151074497 http://www.metalstorm.com/
