Incendius smiled as he heard Tomboy on the comm. "You don't say. ++COMM++ Exit guards, look sharp and arm long range weapons, we have a possible visual. Roadtrain, fall back a bit and move off to the flank. We'll take him from three directions. Wait until we have a definite visual, then I'll move in from the other flank at the same time as you, but wait until I give the go command. We've only got one shot at this people, so don't screw it up or you'll have more than Stinger to worry about. Move!" ++ END COMM++ He cracked his knuckles, and started to walk quickly across the square. He deactivated his hologram and pulled up a tactical area scan with the other's signals on his HUD. He'd been serious when he'd said that they only had one shot, and if everything went as planned, then that was all they'd need. But one slip up and they could lose Stinger for good...
Driveby approached one of the market stalls near the exit and drew his thermo sword inching it close to the puny bot's neck. "If you value you live today, and want to see tommorrow, turn around and walk away", threatened Driveby in a low serious growl. "Don't run, don't yell and scream, just calmly walk away or my next shot will be at you.."
Driveby turned off one of his holograms revealing his sniper rifle alarming the small market stall owner who simply nodded enthusiastically. Kneeling down behind the market stall, Driveby assembled his weapon inserting a clip- into the chamber. After he'd set up the stand, the eyepiece and the barrels, he scoped over the market stall and looked through the eyepiece. He scoped where Tomboy was and followed her direct line of sight towards Stinger and ran the scope u[ and down the bot.
"Head?", too easy, and they had to keep him alive. A leg. disble the bot but still a probability of escape. Driveby aimed lower, if he could get the bot where it might really hurt and slow him down, right on the knee joint...
+++ COMM +++
"I've got the target lined up I can blow his kneecaps from here or blow his tires out and stop him getting away..."
Onix kept his weapons away. He didn't want to alert those around him into a panic, or into a fight, so his weapons said tucked away. The two long barrels on his back were primed and ready to rotate down onto his shoulders if anything went wrong but for now, they stayed in their normal, non-combat positions. He listened intently and kept alert, even while looking nonchalant at the stall.
Roadtrain continued walking for a little bit after he got Tomboy's COMM message. He then stopped at one of the market stalls, selling a number of small bladed weapons. He browsed through them, while keeping an eye on Tomboy and the one who was suspected to be Stinger. He put down the knife he was looking at and moved off to the flank and began browsing another stall.

Hearing the com chatter, Tomboy felt that she had enough back up if anything should go wrong. But she knew she would have to get out of the way before anyone started to open fire. Too bad, she thought to herself. She would love to take down this Stinger character all by herself, show these moronic malebots a thing or two about how a fembot like her could take care of herself.
But she decided to be all business since she had gotten in trouble earlier. She opened a communication with the group. ***COM*** 'Incendius, I'm going to make sure that Stinger's convoy are on Atlas' same pay roll. ***COM***
Tomboy got in close, maybe too close. She was back to back with one of the robots with Stinger. She chatted up one of the dealers and picked up a rifle scope and pretended to inspect it. She raised it up and down in the air and turned about. As she turned she looked at Stinger and his group. They all looked just as mean as Stinger did and all carried weapons. That was nothing out of the ordinary for this crowd. However she did spot an symbol on each robot.
***COM*** 'I've spotted the same mark on all 8 robots that Atlas and his crew wear. I don't see anyone else around my area with the same mark but my position makes it hard to spot anyone else, even with my optics. Incendius, waiting for further instructions.'***COM***
-- "Eight guys? it's going to take more then just the two of you and Tomboy. We have no clue how these guys operate. I think we should wait and see if they head to a more discrete location. Me and DriveBy should move in on your position." --

Tomboy was getting mad with Onix's attitude, but she enjoyed getting mad. She turned around and saw two of Stinger's guys making eyes at her. She remained cool, allowed the two mechs to approach and messaged Onix again. ***COM***'Then make yourself useful and look for more of Stinger's crew like I asked you to, mister professional. Like these two morons in front of me I guess you can't keep your optics off me.'***COM***
'Oh hi! Maybe the two of you can help me chose the right weapon to use to protect myself?' Tomboy said to the two mechs as she leaded them to another weapons table, away fro Stinger's crew.

Incendius gritted his teeth as his slow reactions led to a blip in the plan. He started a universal comm uplink. "Slag! ++COMM++ Driveby, mark the mechs on Tomboy! Take them down if you get so much as an inkling that she's in trouble, but no fatalities! Tomboy, I want you to comm him if you lose control of the situation and he'll help you out with a little distraction fire! Keep them occupied while me and Roadtrain move in on Stinger! Onix, do as Tomboy says and try and identify the Atlas insignia on anyone else! Roadtrain... MOVE!!! ++END COMM++ ACH!" He clutched his audio receptors as the as the feedback from all the other frequencies crackled through his cerebral cortex, temporarily deafening him. Trying to focus through the white noise, he loaded his arm cannon, then after some hesitation, armed his secondary ammo chamber. Then he pulled his sword out and started quickly pushing his way through the crowd, towards the crowd surrounding Stinger...

Tomboy acknowledged Incendius and called Driveby on her wireless, also leaving the channel open for anyone else to hear. ***COM*** 'If my two friends here turn around and see Roadtrain and Incendius coming, I'll drop down for you to take them out. Or if they action starts I'll still duck down so you can get a clear shot. Then I'll use my magnetics to assist the others. Anything I can do to help you get a better shot Driveby?'***COM***
Just get that big lug with his back to me out of the way! And I'll do the rest. He's blocking my targets.
+++ COMMS +++
Driveby re-adjusted trying to get a better angle, but the one blocking him was big and bulky - and wide. It'd be impossible if that great lump stayed there. Part of him just wanted to rush out and cut them all down with his Thermo Sword..

***COM*** 'No can do. These two are in my way. Knock them down and you'll get your wish.'***COM***
As Roadtrain made his way towards the group, Stinger looked up and saw the massive robot coming his way. He looked at him for a second but then turned around, thinking nothing of it. Then he saw Tomboy talking to two of his crew. He then looked back at Roadtrain and told one of his crew to go talk to him, and stop him if necessary. Driveby still didn't have a shot but he then saw Stinger wave to someone or something over at a distance.
***COM*** 'Uh oh, everyone see that? One of Stinger's goons is headed for Roadtrain. Who's Stinger waving to? Incednius I think we need to make this happen!'***COM***
Onix walked away from the stall and started through the crowd, glancing around as people passed buy looking for anyone else with the insignia on their person. He discretely pulled his blaster out from a compartment on his back and it shifted and transformed out of its compact storage mode.
