The Army are showing off their new drones, built from the lessons learnt from White Knight armour and new AI routines to a bunch of reporters, Senators and military enthusiastic civilians. Link and Education send Half-Life, Soyuz. Xeo, along with new recruit Black Katana to get a feeling for her. Which is lucky because JADIS takes over the various drones and starts attacking the gathered crowd.
While the Mighty Union do manage to defeat the robot army, there is a huge cost to civilian life, with about ninety percent of attendees killed. The team take it as a horrible defeat, and the city goes into mourning, but the press do politely point out that without the Union the Robot army would have got free and who knows what would have happened.
