OOC: If Hot Shot hasn't posted by the 26th - that's a full 2 weeks since my post on the 12th, he's shark food.
High above both Locron and Winflutter (Especially the latter!), a whole squadron of F-14's and SR-71 Blackbird swopped across the skies and began attacking the ship-shaped Transformer, trying to stop it from reaching the shore. Thew F-15's attacked first with volley after volley of AIM-9 Sidewinder anti-aircraft missiles, followed up with an array of sabo-rounds..
Wingflutter's oblique path toward the large Transformer had thankfully brought her into shallower waters, which, though still high enough to completely submerge her, did not offer the immobilizing pressure she'd found at greater depths. When many more inorganic objects--this time far above and moving--registered on scan, she redoubled her efforts to reach either the Transformer or land, whichever occurred first. It looked like something exciting was about to happen, and far be it for this femme to miss out on the action.
Reaching the shore, WIngflutter saw that the Decepticon was under attack from multiple Earth-based air units as it began entering the shore line, great splashes of water coming of it as it dripped it's way onto the shore with the jets continuing their pursuit.....
Aboard the Autobot ship Rumble Prime brought up the viewscreen before himself Prowl, Ratchet and Hoist, revealing the great big menacing Transformer below making his way up the beach. Shipwreck had a bird's eye view underneath the ship and was astonished to see another ship Transformer of the same size, but this one clearly wearing Decepticon insignias. With Locron tied up with the attacking earth jets, the ship swung round and released the holding clamps as Shipwreck hit the beach with both feet, near Locron.
Some of the Earth jets broke off and now began attacking Wingflutter too with the same bombardment of missiles and chain guns as they begun attacking the new Transformer, recognising it only as such, neither as Autobot or Decepticon.
Slightly further away the ship landed on the surf, it's huge landing struts digging into the the beach sand as it softly landed. All the humans had scattered for now and were safe as the beach remained deserted bar the Transformers. From a great distance on the grassy banks overlooking the beach, some humans stood and watched in amazement as the Transformer's war was brought to Plato beach...
"Ow! Hey!" Wingflutter exclaimed, retreating from the oncoming attack. Normally she'd be able to evade most of the weapons fire, but the shifting surface below her was continually unbalancing. Stumbling, a barrage of chain gun fire cut a swath across her right shoulder and into her arm. She was no medic; she could only hope none of the bullets found vital targets.
Half-turning, the femme monitored a jet coming in close for another attack, gauging trajectory and starting up her scanning programs even as another missile narrowly missed blowing her foot off. If she judged correctly, the plane might come just low enough on its strafing run for her to scan it down and regain use of her weapons systems and armour--assuming it didn't offline her with its weaponry beforehand. In her concentration, she did not notice the entrance of the Autobot ship or the debarkation of the large transformer from it, save for noting a seismic shudder upon their landing that she attributed to the steps of the aircraft carrier Decepticon.
Locron watched as the earth vehicles began to open fire upon him with their little firearms. It amused him quite a bit but the sheer number of them would get rather alarming if he reduces them anytime soon. However there was a more pressing matter, due to his lack of attention Locron hadn’t been paying attention to his sonar which had resulted in a swift kick to his hull causing the front end on his ship to rise out of the water and fall down again causing a surge of water to hit the beach again.
Transforming rather rapidly Locron sank down to the other transformers level with his blasters at the ready.
The jets continued to swoop down towards winglflutter getting near and near the bot as they continued their assault, not knowing that she was on the side of the good.
Locron continued to swat at the tiny Earth flying vehicles who were now trying a more evasive formation. Seeing Rumble Prime outside his ship with Prowl, Host and Ratchet behind him and he opened fire on the the Autobots. The only thing concerning him, being the giant Autobot on the other side of the ship, Shipwreck...
Underneath the surface, with his in adequacy of the water, the shark continued to take bites out of Hot Shot, even Cbertronian metal was no match for the mighty jaws of one of Earth's great predadors as it clamped it's jaws around Hot Shot's leg. Unable to get a full grasp and with the Autobot trying to shake the creature off, the shark was forced to let go. Hot shot reached for his blaster but the shark had flipped round and came back for a second round taking the Autobots hand clean off.
Grasping his arm in pain, he was to distracted to see the shark seer off, only to come back, and this time wrap his massive jaws around the Autobot's head. With one arm he tried to grab the jaws off the top of his head, but was futile in his attempts and could've done with both hands. With one great bitte the shark tore the Autobot's head off and swan off with the prize between it's jaws... Sparks fizzed out of the Autobots neck unit as the body slumped to the floor... dead.
Noone knew he was there except the other Transformer (Locron), nobody was there to watch him die as the the body softly slumped to the ocean floor...

Shipwreck, after landing ont he beach, immediatly headed for the water. His large feet were beginning to sink in the soft sandy beaches and was making it quite dificult to move around in. Besides, even if it was a little bit of water, it was better then dry land. Pausing, he cleared his throat and glanced back at the others, about to say something, when Rumble Prime interupted his moment of speech, and already answered his question.
Hands tightening into fists, Shipwreck stayed close to shore, yet enough to keep his feet just in the water. Slowly, step by step, he started his advance around toward Locron. Lifting his arm, and taking aim with Locron in his sights, he glanced at the other autobots. They were already firing, and looking back at the transformer his size made him hesitate in his attack. It was like seeing the Titanic rise back from the sea, and it was a feeling that Shipwreck found slightly... puzzling. But Shipwreck was a Navy Soldier, and didn't think for a moment longer on the matter.
With a brisk shake of his head, Shipwreck straightened up and fired his torpedoes at Locron; all the while slowly walking closer. If he could just get a little closer...
Another missile whizzed by Wingflutter's right shoulder, just barely missing blowing the weak protoform armour apart. The femme barely flinched at this, however, so intent was she on the jet ahead of her. Timing was vitally important, and she wasn't about to let some shoddy Earth-based weaponry distract her. The jet, which had also been the one to fire upon her, shot overhead at high speeds, low enough to whip the sand away below it. Wingflutter was ready, though, and with systems running fast enough to overheat, her scanner read the schematics of the earth fighter jet and proceeded with her alt mode reconfiguration. A second missile impacted with the femme, but this time weaponry met armour meant to hold up under fire, and did minimal damage. "What was that?" She called, rediscovering her bravado now that she could protect herself, "Bunch of oversized gliders!"
She paused just long enough for the reconfiguration program to finish its work, then jumped into the air and transformed in one fluid motion, shooting straight up past the other jets. Back in the air again, Wingflutter was confident in the fact that the earth jets could not catch her, even if they didn't see she was a friendly based on the Autobot symbol emblazoned across her vertical stabilizers. With that worry out of the way, she focused her attention back on the giant Decepticon.
Locorn ignored Wingflutter and continued up the shore of the beach, the shots of the Autobots, continued to ping off him for no as he sliced through one of the Earth jet's whop had gotten to close to him with a wide swing of his sword. As he continued up the sandy beach he was not only taking pot shots at the Autobots but was coming dangerously close towards the Autobot ship, The Orion, and strted blasting into the ship's hull...
"Admiral Jackson's on the line, patching him through now." said the Ensign
"You mind giving us some info General, we just had a ship of these... transformers land here." he said "I want to make sure I'm not wasting ammo on the ones i don't need to shoot."
She turned to the ensign.
"Forwarding the pictures of the known robots to the Admiral." said the ensign.
She turned back to the Admiral.
"Alright... focus on the carrier" "But sir..." cam a half objection "DO IT!" said the admiral.
"Sir... have there been any reports of survivors... from the destroyed carrier." she asked.
The Admiral took a second to answer... "I'm sorry... not yet, we've been focusing on this thing... so far it's taken out one of the Air Force planes making us have to attack from higher and farther away... I'll keep you posted General." he said.
"Thank you." she replied.
"Let the Air Force know that we need to concentrate on the Carrier." said the admiral to his comms officer.
"Aye sir." came the response
Admiral Jackson looked through his binocculars towards the small flaming area where the plane went into the water then back to the now transformed carrier.
"Do the destoyers and cruisers have SABOT shells?" he asked his chief weapons officer.
He flipped a chart. "Yes sir... they all have plenty of them."
"Good", he turned to his comm officer. "Tell everyone to open fire with regular rounds to find the target, then load the SABOTs... I want this thing destroyed." he said.
"Aye, sir" said he comm officer.
The escort ships, which now made a very large half-circle around the target transformer, openned fire with missiles, artillery, and torpedoes.
Wingflutter winced internally as she saw one of the Earth jets cut in half by the huge Decepticon's sword. The others flew to a higher altitude to avoid the same fate as the first, but watching the 'Con fire upon her comrades' ship, she decided she did not have the same luxury. Coming in low the femme flew straight over the robotic carrier's head, releasing a round of missiles. She knew her firepower would not be enough to take the 'Con down, but thought making a nuisance of herself might provide enough of a distraction to keep his attention away from the heavy hitters for a moment.
Look out and shout! Ow!

Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
