Paraphus had transformed and began following Swift when he heard him cry out.
He quickly ran to Swift's aid and, putting an arm under his, helped him up and led him to a nearby crater. "Safe for a while. I'll get him"
The furious Paraphus left his comrade and charged as fast and hard as he could at the Decepticon flyer, shooting at it with his cannon as he went. The Decepticon got a good shot in at his gun arm and foot, making him stumble slightly and stop him from shooting for a good couple of metres. As Paraphus got closer he was hit once in the hip and a shot skimmed his shoulder as the Flyer grew trigger happy. The flyer took off into hovering a second too soon and Paraphus jumped off Powerplay and tackled the 'con to the ground. He punched mercilessly at its face then held his Plasma cannons barrel to it's chest and fired. Killing it.
He then began lashing out at any other Decepticons nearby, crushing, shooting and punching all the while getting two shots in the back one at his shoulder and one at the knee.

Swift's leg hurt. He was going to struggle to walk. Luckily for him, his hover ability was unaffected. He activated it and rose out of the crater just in time to see Paraphus going berserk.
"Woah..." He muttered to himself.
He deployed his rifle and fired a couple of bursts at the nearest Decepticon that was attacking Paraphus. Still hovering, Swift rose higher into the air before switching to his club. He switched off his ability and dropped to the ground. He'd positioned himself almost directly over the Decepticon he'd shot at. As Swift hit the ground, he buried his club deep into the Decepticon and kicked the ruined remains away.
Swift moved in behind Paraphus so the two were stood back to back.

Retroblazer watched Max as he climbed the cannon, and was about to follow when he faltered at the sight of his comrades on the east flank, struggling against the increased onslaught of the enemy seekers. Taking another glance up at Max Convoy, he shouted up. "One second!" Deploying another barrier to cover his leader's back, he transformed and slammed to the ground in his tank form. Loading a shell into his cannon, he lined up a shot against the cons attacking Paraphus. ++COMM-Paraphus++ "PARAPHUS! GET CLEAR!" ++END COMM++ And with that, he fired...
Valkyrie had picked off another sentry... headshot this time with the other two rounds landing just below in the chest.
She had been silently cursing staying on the ground, when Torque's comm came on
+COM to Torque+
"With pleasure." She responded
Normally she would have considered arguing the point, albeit briefly... especially since she preferred to take her orders from her superiors, but this was a suggestion and she was more than happy to ger airborne.
She transformed and jetted towards the 'Con line
+COM to Raider team+
"Heads up, frontliners." she said, so they would be expecting something from above.
She strafed the ground with her machine gun, trying to be careful to hit the ground... more to provoke action than to cause damage at least for the moment.
"Come and get me... I dare ya." she said, mainly to herself, waiting for the remaining seekers, at least if they were on the ground, engage in the air.
Swift whipped his head around when he heard Retroblazer on the COMM.
"Uh oh. Paraphus, GET DOWN!" He shouted over the sound of weapon fire.
Torque spotted Valkyrie through the scope of his rifle. He followed her through the sky waiting for any Seekers to start following her.
+++COMM to Valkyrie+++ "Raider Nine, you've got one on your tail." +++COMM+++
He followed the Seeker's path, leading his shot slightly to adjust for a moving target. He fired and saw the round rip through the side of the Seeker's jet mode. As fast as he could, he cycled another round into his weapon. He adjusted his aim and fired again. This round punched a hole through the Seeker's wing. Torque cycled another round into his weapon, noticing his HUD said he had two round left in the weapon. He adjusted his aim again and fired at the Seeker's engines.
Through his scope, he saw the Seeker erupt into a ball of fire.
+++COMM to Valkyrie+++ "Target down." +++COMM+++
Torque quickly reloaded his weapon, making sure he had the full four rounds and cycled one into the chamber before scanning the skies for more Seekers.

After the large explosion that came close to Swift and Paraphus, Powerplay came to and transformed into his robot mode. He saw that he was close to the Decepticon canon and that Max Convoy was on top of it, dealing with Decepticon after Decepticon with his war hammer.
Powerplay's leader yelled a order at him. 'Take out the canon operator!'
Powerplay looked at the canon and saw a Decepticon at the control panel. Then the canon powered up and began to move, targeting it's target; the Intergalactic Ark Space Shuttle.
Powerplay armed himself with his rapid fire blaster and made for the canon, firing as he ran at the Decepticon operator.
The remaining Decepticon ground forces were now a scattered mess. As the ground forces tried to find each other and regroup, the few remaining Seekers, themselves scattered, began to zero in on the canon.

As Max hacked off the head of a Decepticon trooper, he heard Quickshot's warning over the coms. Max then commed his entire team. ***COM*** 'All Raiders this is Raider leader! Focus your attack on the Decepticon moving in on the canon! Terminate them by any means nessasary. We have to protect the Ark!'
Powerplay continued his running assault on the canon operator but his shots were now being blocked by a Energon Shield Barrier. 'Awww Haxanuts! I could use a hand over here!'
The Decepticon seekers were now in formation and it was apparent that they were headed for the canon. The Decepticon ground forces began to assemble in small pairs.

Retroblazer watched with satisfaction as his tank shell hit home. He had no time to appreciate the shot, however, as he looked back up to the cannon and saw Max in trouble. With a snarl, he transformed and ran after Max Convoy, making his way up as fast as he could, heavy bot that he was. He pulled himself up over one more ledge to see Convoy standing, awaiting the oncoming seeker jets. He shouted to his leader over the roar of the engines. "Sir! Get behind me!" Instinctively, he began pulling his blaster from the sheathe on his leg and running forward, ahead of Max. He loaded and took aim at the flyers, loosing off a barrage of inaccurate buckshot to try and slow their advance...
Torque deployed his melee weapon and leaped from his sniping spot. He lashed out at a Decepticon that was just passing underneath. After a few quick melee attack by both combatants, Torque was the victor and the Decepticon lay ruined. Torque transformed and sped off closer to the cannon.
Swift had been firing at the cannon operator alongside Powerplay when the Energon Barrier appeared.
"Slag this. We're not gonna hit him from this angle."
Swift jumped into the air and transformed. He flew in a wide arc and started climbing. Once he was above the cannon, he saw the Seeker formation on the other side of the cannon. Luckily for him, they were facing the opposite direction. Swift locked on to one of them and fired off a missle. He then pulled into a dive and strafed the cannon operator with machine gun fire before pulling up and skimming along the ground. He transformed and slide back into position near Powerplay and Paraphus.

Powerplay yelled at Swift. 'No! Now lets haul cylinders.' With that, Powerplay transformed into his tank mode. As soon as he could, he fired off a rocket from his tank canon at the base of the Decepticon weapon. The entire canon shook, throwing the Decepticon canon operator off his game even more so. Powerplay continued forward in tank mode.
Retroblazer managed to scatter the Decepticon seekers, making them abort they're attack, but not with not trading some bullets with the Autobots who were on the canon. Max Convoy saw that it was only three Decepticons left on there massive weapon. 'Foward Retroblazer! Terminate with extreme prejudice!'
Max Convoy lead the charge to the canon operator with his Photon Burst Rifle spiting hot metal at the last few Decepticons left. As other members of the Raiders began to advance on the canon, the Decepticon ground forces began to zero in on any Autobot they could find.
