“Will do.” Vizsla assured now taking Indra’s seat before reaching out to her communicator in her right ear, contacting Frieda, her second-in-command.
“Frieda, take first platoon hard drop. Secure a landing zone for the Franca.” Vizsla ordered. “RCX, prep two flights of shuttles and follow them in.”
"Aye aye ma’am."
“Until you secure the LZ, I’m going to keep a low profile.” Vizsla brief, “Once you leave the ship, you’re on your own.”
"Understood ma’am, we’ll deal with anything that comes in our way."
“Over the target’s orbit in five.” One of the bridge bunnies reported having steered the Franca hovering above the planet’s orbit with a small section of the belly opening revealing over 20 pods within with red klaxons blaring as the locking clamps withholding them releases allowing the pods to briefly float in space until the built-in rocket located at the top lights up, boosting the atmospheric re-entry vehicle down to the planets orbit
“Hang on to your helmets!” Frieda shouted over the pod comms with a grin as she felt the extreme G-Forces slam into her gut given her pod was now rocketing towards the planet’s orbit, it’s heat shield now active upon entering the planet’s atmosphere.
Looking out beyond tough windscreen, ignoring the red flare around her pod she could see her fellow Zakus in their pods race pass hers passing through the cloud with ease. Immediately, Frieda felt her gut pull back as the pod automatically deployed its chute, slowing the pod’s tremendous speed significantly.
“Mind the bump.” She whispered to herself before feeling a small tug within the pod signaling to her the chute was released leaving her pod to free fall.
Below her, Frieda could see the clouds clear revealing a forest, the trees getting bigger and bigger by the second where she then braces herself for the upcoming impact of her pod hitting the ground.
The ground beneath the pod explodes into a shower of grass and dirt leaving a large crater with the pod within. Seconds later, the door makes a loud hiss and blasted the door away with a loud bang.
Frieda in her Zaku armor would march out of the use, steaming pod with barely any difficulty.
