Through his VidScreen, Eldae watched the base come alive. There weren't as many ground units as he would have preferred, but it would be enough. Leaving two of the tanks with damaged drive systems in siege mode as defenses, he ordered the rest of his tanks forwards.
Dimitri led the marines out as the tanks arrived they used there standard proceedure just with a cut in numbers due the lack of marines avaible to them. 2 marines to each tank. "Eldae do you know when the 'supplies' are suppose to come in?" Dimitri wondered
"I'd rather hope for them being delayed then not getting them at all...we need them if we're going to hold out here any longer." Dimitri shook his head as he said that and continued to walked farther away from the base.
"Need brooks no delay, yet late is better than never." Smiling at his use of that old saying (where had he heard it before?) he drove slowly behing the infantry and protoss, all the while scanning for life forms. He just hoped no zergs in burrows jumped his tanks. From that close and having the element of surprise... he repressed a shudder and carried on.
Dimitri stopped to look over head to make sure there were no overlords in the area he always hated them and whatever surprise they might be holding inside of them. "Oh...thats not good..." He said quickly into his commlink as he saw an overlord and 2 mutalisks fly over head. "Boys we're gonna have a problem...look up."
Eldae aimed his guns up, barking out commands. "Get moving! Execute evasive maneuvers, don't stay in any one spot, and no patterns! Gunners, aim for that overlord first. No telling what that ugly scumbag's got hidden in it." As his tank swerved wildly away from both the infantry and the other tanks, Eldae began firing. It was tough to hit things while moving so erratically, but it was also much tougher to be hit, and overlords were pretty hard to miss anyways.
