Hidden within the war torn grounds of the place known to Cybertronian's as the Manganese Mountains, a squad of Autobots known as the Raiders, wait for their quarry to arrive.
For over a week, the Raiders have been tracking the whereabouts of a squad of Decepticons, rumoured to have access to a super power laser canon, capable of laying a entire city to waste.
In this spot, at this height on the mountains, the Autobot ship known as the Ark is in view.
Max Convoy, leader of the Raiders, looks around from his hiding spot for any possible enemy movement. He decides to break radio silence and have his squad report in. ***COMLINK***'This is Raider leader to all Raiders, sound off.'***COMLINK***
Under a pile of scrap metal and in his tank mode, Powerplay replies ***COMLINK***"Raider 4 reporting in, and no signs of any Decepti-creeps. Hey boss, I think this lead of ours is a dead end. I say we pick up and go find them else where!'
***COMLINK***'Negative Raider 4, you saw the look in that Decepticon's face after Retroblazer threaten to turn him inside out. We wait. Everyone else report in.'***COMLINK***
(ooc: Everyone can make up there hiding spots, the surrounding area is basically all shot to hell but no ruins of buildings. Mainly steel grounds and metal ditches with a lot of scrap metal, junk and holes in the ground.)
Torque was in his robot mode, hidden in a crater left by a missile. He had his null ray rifle equipped and debris ontop of him, hiding him from view. He whispered into his COMMLINK when he heard Max Convoy
+++COMMLINK+++ "Raider 5, no contacts in sight." +++COMMLINK+++
Swift was hidden in the remains of a fuel tank. He would have much preferred to be up in the skies, but in their situation, he would have given their situation away.
+++COMMLINK+++ "Raider 6, ready. No sign of anyone but us so far." +++COMMLINK+++
Quickshot was perched on the highest point he could find in the scrap. He'd have been completely exposed, except he had activated his cloaking ability to get a better look, and now peered into the distance through his pistols scope.
****"Quickshot reporting in and.....there's nothing out here."***

Retroblazer had selected a hiding spot in the shell of a rusting, blown out transport ship, mounted on a small pile of rubble at a slight vantage point, so that he would be able to spot any danger to his comrades. He was cross legged under a large steel beam, enjoying the late evening breeze rushing past on his thick armor. He was admiring the sight of the Ark, when Max Convoy commed in for a sound-off. He shifted slightly in his sitting position, then lent back and activated his comm. ++COMMLINK-MAX.CONVOY++ "Raider 3 standing by, commander. All quiet."[/color] He hesitated for a moment, then relaxed his tone and spoke amiably to his commander. "How you holding up, sir? Getting a little cold, this time of night." ++COMMLINK-END++[/b]

Replying to Retroblazer, ***COM*** 'Itching to get started, like the rest of you, over.' ***COM***
As gung-ho as Max Convoy sounded, he was actually in deep thought, thinking how best to handle the situation. He only put on the bravo to keep the fighting spirit of his troops up high. It was on him to get the best out of his crew, even though they were some of the best in the business so to speak.
Powerplay was going crazy. In his mind he couldn't stay still, but he was professional enough not to lose his cool. In retrospect he thought it was a pretty bad idea choosing to wait it out in tank mode, he hated staying still.
But then something almost made him jump as he heard something. ***COM***'Raider 4 to all Raiders, I think I heard something. Can I get a comfirmation?'***COM***

Quickshot didn't see any movement but instead saw something he hadn't seen their before. It looked like a smashed up cybercar, however this wrecked car could still move as Quickshot witnessed. The vehicle began to move slow on a path coming out of a long running ravine.
The car then turned around, this time not making much noise. It blinked it's headlights in to the ravine 3 times then two more times before turning back around and moving forward to wards the ambush area.
Quickshot cocked the robot equivalent of an eyebrow, even though no one could see it because of his current transparency.
***"The big lug may have heard something after all. I've got optics on a junked up cybercar acting strange. Came out of the ravine then flashed a signal back into the ravine, three times with a pause, and then two more times."***

Through his scope, Quickshot could now see three Decepticons come out of the ravine. Two scout sized and one seeker.
Max Convoy radioed to the Raiders. ***COM***'Your our optics Raider 8 (Quickshot), keep us up to date. Everyone else, weapons set to kill but be patience. If the rest of our information is correct, there should be about 15 contacts, armed to the grill and in persession of a massive canon with enough firepower to take off Omega Suspreme's head. Stay sharp and still. When they're in position, we move in.***COM***'
