The Gun Striders stand upon the brink of disbandment. With their captain dead and their second-in-command missing, the five remaining members have chosen to stay together… for now.
Despite their best attempts to preserve their bonds, the recent power void has begun to cause a rift between themselves.
As the deadline for registration in the new Armoured Combat Arena season draws to its final days, the Gun Striders must decide on their next captain through a gruelling series of duels, or miss their chance to reclaim the championship title. Who will be the one to lead them?
With her victory over her other teammates complete, Arlette now finds herself against Nikolai and his IS-3. Her AMX 13 90 can outrun the heavy tank effortlessly, but her opponent is a true veteran and a dangerous opponent. The winner of this battle will henceforth become the new Captain of the Gun Striders. Who will emerge victorious?
“Hey, old man.” Arlette said.
She heard Nikolai’s sigh. “I’m not that old.” He said.
“You sound like one.” She knew his real age, of course, but that’s never stopped Arlette from teasing him relentlessly. “I bet you’re slouching in your seat now, too. Sit up, no slouching!”
“If I were you,” Nikolai said, “I would think about how to win my opponent, not their posture.”
“Ah don’t worry, I’ve got some ideas.” In truth, Arlette was secretly worried about Nikolai’s tank. It has its fair share of weak spots of course, but she was sure that Nikolai knew about them too and would do anything to keep them away from her gun. Furthermore, the darkening sky seemed to promise rain and slippery mud, hindering her movement.
But there’s no point revealing all that to him. “So,” she said, recalling a previous train of thought, “remind me why you’re last again? Why do we have to fight three rounds when you only have one?”
“It’s fair that way.” Nikolai said. “I’ve led the team before, so I have the experience. Therefore I’m better suited to be the captain.”
“That doesn’t sound very fair to me.” Arlette’s eyes narrowed. “You just gave yourself a shortcut.”
“Sometimes you have to step up when you know you can handle the job.” He answered.
Arlette turned to look at the time. Seven seconds left.
“I still don’t think it’s fair.” She protested as she readied her tank.
“If you win, you won’t care.” He said.
As the Gun Walkers' youngest member, Arlette is the team's reconnaissance specialist and resident daredevil. Her duties include spotting enemy positions and disrupting their positions with harassing fire, although her reckless nature has resulted in more than a few uncomfortable close encounters throughout her fighting career.
Nikolai, or 'Nick' as he's known affectionately by his teammates, is the oldest member of Team Gun Striders and also the one with the most battle experience. Due to his age, he is usually referred to as the 'old man' of the group, a title that he finds both endearing and highly annoying depending on the context.
Without Nikolai's well-armoured IS-3 to protect them, the rest of the Gun Striders would have been easy prey for every other team in the arena. He’s fond of guiding his heavy tank fearlessly into close combat, relying on its resilient armour to keep his foes occupied while his teammates move into position and begin their assault.
