Combat Advice and Tactical Data

Advisor Advice
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "The frontiers of France have been secured, and our forces have proved themselves against a Divine Evangelion. Casualties are low, too."
Alphonse3.png?dl=0 "As expected, the enemy's air forces were well-equipped. However, the superior coordination of our air force helped carry the day against them."
Leon%20pog.png?dl=0 "Not just in the air, either. Air power proved decisive in the battle for Liege."
Liu%20Lin.png?dl=0 "In the end, though, we were only able to force the enemy Divine Eva to retreat. No doubt all of the damage dealt to it regenerated within an hour of it leaving the battlefield."
Alphonse3.png?dl=0 "We need to develop superior, coordinated strategies when it comes to Divine Evas. DEVA-01 is extremely tough both in biological resilience and in armour, and although it had trouble laying a hand on 04, when it did the results were ghastly. One well-timed flurry could've torn 04 apart limb from limb."
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "Any suggestions?"
Harken2.png?dl=0 "Concentrated safe firepower. We weren't able to bring the battleship's weapons to bear on DEVA-01 without risking damaging our own units, so I recommend relying on a powerful charge to open the battle, before withdrawing to allow firepower to do the rest."
Alphonse3.png?dl=0 "If Minerva were here instead of in Russia, we know what she'd suggest."
Leon%20pog.png?dl=0 "Fusion weapons."
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "Fusion weaponry was developed specifically to kill Angels, especially big resilient ones. We're having some trouble producing it for our Superheavies at the moment, but i agree that implementing them in the future would be a good idea."
Liu%20Lin.png?dl=0 "My recommended 'Deva-hunting task force' would consist of one Eva Pointman, either Yanmei or Isaiah, a unit of Superheavies sporting Fusion Weapons and three or four support units- optimally, two artillery, one AC Suit and one Armoured."
Alphonse3.png?dl=0 "Quite. I like that approach because as we've seen, simply trying to wear Deva-01 down won't work. What we need is a period of coordination, where we minimize the Deva's offensive and set up the attack, then we unleash a massive alpha strike all at once in optimal conditions."
Leon%20pog.png?dl=0 "Assuming the enemy lets us get away with that. We had heavy support from our fortress line, but that line is one of the most fortified in the world. There are very few battles where we will be able to rely on its strength."
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "Quite. In any case, well done all of you for your hard work. Dismissed."
Harken2.png?dl=0 "Mmm…"
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "Is there a problem, Harken?"
Harken2.png?dl=0 "No problem. In fact you could say the opposite. I seem to have become used to ordering the slaughter of my countrymen much quicker than I'd thought I would…"
Marianne2.png?dl=0 "… Go get some rest, Harken. Asuka's looking forward to spending some time with you."

Resource Summary

Advisor Advice
Hannelore2.png?dl=0 "We gained 7 CP from this battle. We don't have to spend any of that on Evas, either! However, that goddamned Pham went down again, so she'll need fixing. Edgar's unit also took extensive damage too. All up we need to set 2 CP aside for Eagle Squadron. Furthermore, we'll be inheriting a Dreadnought division, and we'll need 2 CP to fully restore it to combat function. That leaves us with a grand profit of 3 CP… Yay."

Upgrade Advice

Advisor Advice
Surov2.png?dl=0 "Start building F-Type Equipment now or you're going to have a Divine Evangelion shower pretty little French cities with Eva guts. Researching armour is also a priority. 04 needs armour upgrades."
Alphonse3.png?dl=0 "Minerva's off sampling the rare delights of the Soviet Red Army this time, but fear not, I can do a pretty good impersonation: we need fusion weapons. Start supporting our Superheavy auxilia so they can invest resources into buying basic fusion weapons. We need them if we ever want to hunt Devas. Also, squee squee Raffy or something. That's something she does, when she isn't conquering countries, I think."

Advisor Advice
Tenma2.png?dl=0 "Less concern this time around, although I'm not thrilled to see Pham back in my department. Could someone in command try to figure out a way to stop this from becoming a thing?"


Showdown at Bastogne

Actor Dialogue
Deva-01%20Page.png?dl=0 Commotion to the Northeast. There was gunfire and smoke… a massive 4-armed figure lurched from a line of trees, silent except for its steady footfalls.
- Before it lay the town of Bastogne. The town was in full fortress mode- turret towers had risen out of hills, huge sloped armour plates jutted out of the ground and recon aircraft flew overhead. A handful of Dreadnoughts- twenty metre high war machines on stubby legs- stared up at the Deva. They took shelter behind the armour plates and fired, a huge firestorm of explosive shells bursting around the Deva.
Deva-01%20Page.png?dl=0 To apparently little effect. The Deva lifted one of its unnaturally long legs onto the crest of the artificial armoured curtain wall surrounding the town. With deliberate power it bent down and grasped one of the Dreadnoughts around the middle with its giant hand, its long clever clawed fingers wrapping tightly around it. The Deva hoisted the unit up, its weight apparently not a problem- then swung it like a baseball bat at two neighbouring Dreadnoughts. The impact caused a horrid, shrieking metal sound as armour plates tore apart.
Harken2.png?dl=0 "This is Harken! Devangelion sighted, requesting immediate counter-Eva support!"
EVA-04.png?dl=0 Several hundred kilometres away, EVA-04's spine went rigid.
Yan1.png?dl=0 "Rei! We're intercepting!"
Rei2.png?dl=0 "… Alright."
Alphonse3.png?dl=0 "Give 'er hell, Rei. You'll be fine."
Rei2.png?dl=0 "Al…"
EVA-04.png?dl=0 04 pumped its shining wings and was airborne without giving her partner a chance to reply. 09, however, not only kept up, but overtook her, landing gracefully in the middle of the Deva's path and throwing an arm out in its direction. The AT Fields around both of them shone and then dimmed considerably. A moment later, 04 crashed noisily down to the earth again, positioned firmly between the Deva and 09, its own field interacting with and weakening the Deva's. There was the slightest pause… Then 04 sprang forward, slashing with one of the swords it carried.
Deva-01%20Page.png?dl=0 It never hit. It hoisted up a huge shield, with which it bashed the sword away with such force that 04 was nearly thrown off balance.
Yan1.png?dl=0 "God-!"
EVA-04.png?dl=0 Her words were cut off; Yanmei instinctively scrabbled away from a sharp overhead motion that she just barely spotted out of the corner of the eye. It was a sword stroke that would have easily lopped off a limb had Yanmei not been fast enough. The Deva's head moved, the pilot obviously tracking 04 even after the miss.
Yan1.png?dl=0 "-Damnit!"
Fatima%20Page.png?dl=0 "Come on… Another mistake like that and I can end this war here and now."
- The air around the battlefield was on fire. Blasts of energy crackled. Dreadnoughts swung mighty fists at the Deva, trying to distract it from 04. Around the feet of giants were other forces; hundreds of AC Suits from both sides, trading fire and sword. Rounds from both sides sailed, bursting around Eva and Deva alike. UN Superheavies had arrived now, pouring wave after wave of disciplined bolter fire into the melee.
EVA-04.png?dl=0 Yanmei tried to weave through them without letting her attention deviate too far from the unflinching enemy Deva. Unfortunately, it was impossible to dodge everything. Bits of armor dented and chipped off under the barrage, and by the time the Deva stepped up to throw its own punches, 04 was looking rather worse for wear.
Deva-01%20Page.png?dl=0 They were precise, heavy blows, seemingly endless. They moved with a great sense of weight and force, yet this slowed them down not at all. Yanmei managed to dodge the first few, but stumbled and caught a pair to the stomach that sent her and 04 reeling. Deva's claws dug into the metal and flesh of 04's torso and pulled away, splashes of blood and armour showering onto the forces below.
Fatima%20Page.png?dl=0 "I have you now."
Deva-01%20Page.png?dl=0 The Deva wound up for a real knockout blow, launching an open-palmed strike right at 04's head…!
Ayanami%20Eva%20Tiny%20Pog.png?dl=0 At the last second, an arm appeared, holding a shield similar to Deva's own. The arm was white, and strangely armoured, metal and ossified carapace blending seamlessly together. EVA-09… The blow was stopped in its tracks, tearing away a layer of the shield's armour.
Rei2.png?dl=0 "Ngh-!"
EVA-04.png?dl=0 Yanmei wheezed tiredly, but was back into action in a flash, wordlessly darting around 09 and pressing back with a flurry of sword strokes that bounced almost harmlessly off the Deva's armor. With a disgusted grunt, Yanmei fell back a few paces before the Deva could retaliate, ducking briefly behind 09 for cover.
- The battle around them was starting to turn against Deva's favour, however. Its support was in full retreat, driven off by the French Army. The Dreadnoughts surged forth, three of them managing to grab onto and pin Deva's left leg whilst another four waddled up onto the curtain wall. Their heavy fists latched onto one of Deva's arms and began to spin wildly, electricity crackling around the gauntlet. Huge chunks of flesh were torn from the Deva's arm, revealing bone…
Fatima%20Page.png?dl=0 "Ugh-! Not bad…"
Deva-01%20Page.png?dl=0 Deva paused for a second, and the damage seemed to heal impossibly quickly, new layers of flesh and armour filling the wounds. The Deva pulled away with a sudden surge, sending the Dreadnoughts toppling over the curtain wall.
Fatima%20Page.png?dl=0 "If I could just get a single good hit on 04…"
Marshal%20Page.png?dl=0 "Rhineland Command to DEVA-01. You are ordered to withdraw to the Watchline."
Fatima%20Page.png?dl=0 "What? But our forces…"
Marshal%20Page.png?dl=0 "Forgive me, Nejem, but they are simply not a comparable strategic priority."
Fatima%20Page.png?dl=0 "…"
Deva-01%20Page.png?dl=0 Deva stared at 04 and 09 for a few seconds more- then, making sure to kick a Dreadnought before it went, leapt into a backwards somersault, sheathing its weapons and landing on all fours. A pair of long spines burst out of its back, followed by morphic black wing-like shapes that extended to the tip of the spines. With a few heavy wingbeats, Deva leapt into the air- and flew.
