2000. winter. The Elites of Europe, the 44th tactical armored battalion Zerberus took ceremonial flight positions above the river Thames in the city of London as part of the The 10th royal anniversary parade celebrating liberation of London from BETA control.
“ohhh. I wish we could stay up here forever. This is so wonderful.”
Happy as always the walking TSF encyclopedia Lunateresia von Witzleben Was fully immersed in sharing this almost magically like moment with her own beloved typhoon.
“Luna, I can’t agree with you more on this-“
Just as Ifirde was talking with a very happy Lunatarisa on her comms net; Rot 11 Lieutenant Wolfgang von Brauer’s voice cut into the conversation.
“Rot 8. Be a little more serious here, this is a very formal occasion and command can call us back at a moment’s notice.”
Even though Dover base in only 100km away from London, due to the extreme heavy nature of air traffic from the celebratory parade in the city today; the Zeberus battalion have orders to rendezvous with the Carrier Typhon downstream from the Thames river at the naval port of Tilbury in the event of an emergency instead of the normal RTB route.
“rot 12 to rot 11. Let luna have some fun. Besides it’s a rare and unique opportunity to see London from up here…… and since when did you become the shining example of discipline and soldiery?”
“No, not really I just don’t particularly give a shit about the British’s priority of work and spending.”
