SNF 2018.09 - SNF: Service Rivalry

[Toggle Names]

Description: One of the most important matters within the ranks of the guardians of the nations of the world is keeping at the tip top of training. The safest and most effective way of keeping cutting edge? Interorganizational combat. Cammy must face off against Potemkin at the Fairchild Air Force Base, in order to settle some cross-service benchmarks. It's the Killer Bee vs the Stone Wall in this showdown, to see with Zepp can keep up with the best of the Delta Red.

Joint training between the British MI6 and the forces of Zepp, at a military base in a country foreign to both of them. Unusual, but hardly the strangest circumstances either has faced, almost certainly. Cammy walks out onto the air strip in a green leotard, red combat gloves and beret, and black boots, tugging on her equipment and making sure everything is secured before entering even a training-based combat scenario.

The blonde with the long twin braids looks briefly over the area, scanning everything for things she can use, obstacles to be aware of, and so on. All part of her training. In one sweep, she analyzes and memorizes the battlefield, while heat rises up off the tarmac in waves that distort the air beneath the scorching sun.

In the background, there's a fighter jet at rest, with some crew and pilots around it, male and female. They cheer and holler for the soon-to-be-battle (or perhaps just for the sight that Cammy presents), adding some noise other than the distant roar of engines echoing over the flat expanse as planes take off, or the whistle of the wind that brings clouds of dirt with it.

Zepp would seem to be..uh..late? None of their forces are present on the field and reports state that the opponent for the elite Delta Red soldier cuts a fairly distinct profile and so would be impossible to miss so certainly he's not simply blending in with the crowd at the moment to make things difficult for getting the show on the road.

The answer to this brief delay soon reveals itself via the sudden appearence of a massive VTOL of Zepp design, blasting into view and hurtling overhead towards the wide battle zone. There is a loud sound of metal grinding and gears rumbling as the cargo hold of the craft opens up and a huge container blasts forth, descending rapidly towards the air base below.

Fifty feet above the ground, explosive locks release and the immense cargo crate opens up and then fires braking jets as it releases the monstrous body of Potemkin to descend in free fall towards the earth below. The cargo crate spirals away, lifting back up and out of the way to avoid being a nuisance but Potemkin's arrival is nothing less then a miniature seismic event that shakes the whole of the area and triggers nearby seismometers as he lands in a crouched pose and skids forward to a stopping position some distance away from, but directly facing Cammy.

Onlookers are easily knocked from their feet by the impact of the immense man(?) who slowly straightens up to his full eight and a half foot height and then stretches his shoulders out and chest wide as he fully settles his weight and immensity into the area.

"Code 459560538 Potemkin - Deployed." his almost nigh unintelligible rumble of a bassy voice intones. "I am ready for this combat demonstration."

Cammy            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0         Potemkin

An impressive arrival. Cammy doesn't move from her spot, though she keeps her eyes on her opponent as he falls from the sky inside of a crate. Once he is ejected from it, and hits the ground, it takes all her balance to avoid being knocked flat by the force of Potemkin's landing. She has to shield her eyes from the dust and dirt with one arm even so. She eventually takes a few steps back, more to put distance between them than for the sake of balance, and offers a brief, sharp salute.

"Cammy White, MI6." And Delta Red, but that's not entirely public knowledge since they were disbanded in protest of the use of Gears. "I'm ready as well." she says in her accented English (or maybe it's just the Americans who have the accent. Ever think of that!? Huh!?!) before moving into her fighting stance. She waits several seconds, taking the huge man's measure, fists raised and held parallel to her body, one leg forward, the other straight with the knee out to the side.

COMBATSYS: Cammy calculates her next move.

[\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////////////]
Cammy            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0         Potemkin

The measure of Potemkin. There is a (former?) Delta Red member - Matthew McCoy - basically a toddler compared to Potemkin's proportions. He's basically a Sherman Tank with arms and legs. His namesake come to life. He could likely contend for and win the title of World's Largest Man by some degree of a couple thousand pounds of hyper sized and mutated dense muscularity and superhuman strength. The Zepp technology apparent in his armament doesn't make him less intimidating either as the chi-tek gauntlets emit a loud *KA-CHUNK* sound as they lock into place. His uniform strains visibly beneath the tectonic like movements of his immense muscles as he returns Cammy's salute with one of his own in the form of a Zepp military pose which wherein he stretches one arm out and up at an angle and leans back slightly with the other arm poised slightly at his chest level like some strange mix of a bodybuilders pose with a military salute.

"I look forward to our duel."

From here, he snaps out of that pose and is suddenly lunging forward at Cammy with speed that belies his gigantic proportions and this lunge accented by a jump wherein he leaps forward off the ground and then descends down towards the MI6 agent with both of his fists pistoning down towards her in a rapid blurring movement.

Cammy            0/-------/---====|==-----\-------\0         Potemkin

Cammy's assessment of Potemkin includes his physical abilities, stature, and likely reach. However, she underestimated his speed. She tries to leap back out of range of the attack when it comes, the blur of movement enough to set her on the defensive, but leaping seems to have been a bad call because the attack comes from above. Hit with a barrage of blows, the much more slender and light-weight fighter is hurled backwards along roughly the trajectory she'd chosen as an escape vector before she was hit, with a course correction courtesy of Potemkin down towards the ground.

However, she manages to bounce up after she hits the ground on her back, curling into a ball, and rolling the rest of the way until she can get on her feet. The pain ringing through her body, especially her back and ribs, is certainly an eye-opener. When she does get back up, she has a new appreciation for her foe's capabilities. Rather than frightening her, it makes her sharper, more calculating in her responses as well as her actions.

Cammy leaps up into the air again, seemingly immediately abandoning that caution, but it's an attack this time, and sends her spiralling down at Potemkin from an angle in mid-air, feet first, trying to drill into him with her boots!

Cammy            0/-------/--=====|===----\-------\0         Potemkin

Lightly glowing white eyes widen slightly and then narrow within the depths of the darkness caused by the Zeppian military helm. He's impressed. She just bounced right back up from that. With his recent opponents having included the likes of M. Bison, seeing Cammy's light frame weather his assault and just turn it into momentum for a sudden counter attack is worthy of note.

Equally worthy is her speed. He attempts to bring both of his arms up to cross them infront of his body to use his gauntlets as a metallic shield against her assault but she's on him like a flash of lightning.

Her heels find purchase on the street wide expanse of his chest and he is pressed backwards, weathering the assault with a grunt until he suddenly he lunges forward, reaching with a massive hand to try and grab for her before she can rebound away. Grab for her and then bring her down to the asphalt with the full force of his strength and massive palm crushing behind her in a thunderous throw.

COMBATSYS: Potemkin successfully hits Cammy with Hammer Smash.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////////    ]
Cammy            1/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0         Potemkin

The pain is renewed and added to as Potemkin grabs Cammy's leg as she tries to push off of him to get some distance and whips her into the ground. Her vision goes white from the impact, and she has to grit her teeth HARD to retain consciousness, but again her glacial calmness saves her from being defeated on the spot by the superhuman might being used against her. Cammy almost seems to be knocked out for a moment from how she lies still, but then she attempts to drive one foot into Potemkin's thumbjoint to make him let go of her leg, before ignoring the screaming protest of her muscles as she handsprings off the ground.

She tries to wrap her legs around Potemkin's neck head, that big collar making his neck a non-viable target, then use her momentum to try to drag him backwards and slam him into the ground. Her body is no doubt going to be one big bruise tomorrow, but, for whatever reason, she has assassin training in her past that she doesn't know the source of. And that training tells her there's no time for crying about ouchies when her life and her mission are at stake.

This is just a training mission, but it's clear that a normal person could easily be killed if Potemkin chose to go all-out. She can't afford to hold back as a result.

Cammy            1/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0         Potemkin

Momentum sends Potemkin's body arcing up, his huge body dragged by Cammy's strength and determination to a straining high point that just needs a liiiiitle bit more of a push to send him toppling over backwards in her grasp.

He staggers, he wobbles. He's immovable. His huge body flexes, sending a shockwave rippling down into the tarmac that forces the tar to buckle and wave like water with a huge boulder tossed into it. Potemkin spreads both of his huge arms wide and then suddenly lunges upward to try and grasp for Cammy on either side of her.

"Impressive." he admits, "But I'm afraid not quite strong enough."

With that, if he manages to grasp her before she is able to release herself from her previous attempt.. he will leap and Cammy will see the tops of the local buildings before Potemkin spins and comes back down with her, with fists glowing with chi and her body straddled across his back to absorb the shockwave inducing impact of his backbreaker move.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////////   ]
Cammy            1/-------/=======|====---\-------\0         Potemkin

That is a little bit much for Cammy. As much as she appreciates the value of pressuring an opponent, the force of Potemkin's backbreaker attack would put her in very dire staits if she didn't manage to squirm out of it and leap off of his back, spring off her toes a fraction of a second after the balls of her feet touch the ground, flip into a swan-dive like position as she L-sits in the air, and then continue forward to land on both feet, arresting her momentum even as she spins around, arms raised in a guard position, orienting on her opponent.

Potemkin's speed is deceptive, but his mass and strength are exactly as she foresaw... Well, greater, really. The pain she feels is a distraction, even if it is a very important indicator of the damage she has taken. Even so, she has to shut it out for now. So she takes the time to breathe in and out slowly, clear her head, and push the protests of her injured flesh to a distant portion of her mind, while gathering her strength.

She doesn't know what kind of endurance Potemkin has, but it's clear she isn't going to beat him in a slugging match. She needs to deal damage gradually and evade taking any more clean hits. That's the only way she has a chance of success. She doesn't have a lot of experience against massive opponents, so this training is already teaching her a lot.

COMBATSYS: Cammy gains composure.

[        \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////////   ]
Cammy            1/---====/=======|====---\-------\0         Potemkin

Potemkin has much to learn as well. Indeed, recent losses..back to back losses at that, and dire circumstances have placed upon him the extra burden of needing to glean as much as he can and face as many opponents of varied skill sets as he can... He's relied to much on simple size and strength and far to often under estimated the abilities of smaller and less physicaly powerful opponents, to his own downfall. This sparring much offers him an opportunity to try and force himself to think differently about how he approaches matters of battle.

One such method is to keep the pressure on and be unrelenting. Even as Cammy escapes him and manages to regain some poise with a momentary breather, Potemkin is pivoting and then suddenly bursting forward at her with a dash that seemingly has him sliding across the tarmac before lunging forward at her with both of his arms at the same time.. attempting to literally slam both of his fists together on either side of her and crush her body, dramatically, between his balled up hands.

He is, indeed, deceptively fast. His reflexs are slow but his attacks come hurtling in like a meteor.

COMBATSYS: Cammy fails to counter Hammer Fall from Potemkin with CQC.

[              \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////////    ]
Cammy            0/-------/--=====|=====--\-------\0         Potemkin

Cammy tries to turn Potemkin's own strength against him with a repeat of her move from before with the leg-throw, but though she leaps up and over his hands, the sheer force of them smashing together hurls her away before she can get close. She hits the ground once more, but doesn't manage to bounce off the ground this time. She lies still for a second or two, heavily disoriented, before scrambling to her feet and trying to make herself stop seeing double of her opponent.

That set her back a lot. She lost energy to continue fighting, took more damage, and has lost her momentum as well. She wants to press the attack rather than giving Potemkin a chance to hit her with another of those, but she can barely stand up without staggering. She's not going to be advancing or retreating in any stable fashion.

Again he bears down on her. Being relentless seems to be working to his favor here and the tide could turn at any moment. He's experienced enough of defeats to know that the battle is not over until someone is down for the count, regardless of how much of an advantage the other may seem to have.

Likewise he is not without his own limits as well. A loud *KA_CHUNK* resounds as his gauntlets reset themselves and discharge several used Chi-Shells. At the same time he pivots, looming in for Cammy to send a massive fist hurtling around for her in the form of a gigantic back hand swing that will, ideally, batter her and send her tumbling further away.

He refrains from quips as he does. She's hardly spoken and so he returns the favor. It seems this is all strictly business. Military training with no pleasure being visibly derived from him seemingly having the upper hand at the moment.

[                \\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////////   ]
Cammy            0/-------/-======|======-\-------\0         Potemkin

Cammy can only stay where she is for now, so when Potemkin attacks, she takes a seemingly suicidal action by standing her ground, raising her arms and trying to block the powerful backhand strike. Her boots skid along the ground, leaving friction burns and smoke trails as she is pushed forcefully. It was no doubt a jarring impact. But...

She is still standing.

The blonde warrior grabs hold of Potemkin's hand, and flipping up and over it, and then bringing a leg down in an overhead axe kick aimed at her battle partner's head. Once she's on the other side of that huge fist and on the ground, she tries to spin and deliver a backfist attack to Potemkin's knee.

No. No, quips. She's not really the type in the first place, and if there's any enjoyment to testing herself, pushing herself to her limits against a chellenging target, then it doesn't show on her face at least. But that doesn't mean she doesn't have respect for the man she fights. Infact, her taking this seriously is exemplary of that respect. There's no time for games and taunts in a fight with someone you admire the skills of.

COMBATSYS: Cammy blitzes into action and acts again!

Cammy            0/-------/=======|=======\=------\1         Potemkin

Well it would seem that he's not as invulnerable as he attempts to let on. There's some art to the ability to seem like an invulnerable juggernaut after all and at first it seems this will be the case as Cammy's initial strike has no effect on the colossus and for al the world it looks like he could take a train impact and be unmoved.

But when she manages that back hand strike against his leg, he fails to manage his defenses and with a thunderous grunt he goes toppling over, the force of the blow bringing him down to tumble earthwards like a building with its foundation pulled from beneath it. His impact shakes the area and sunders the ground violently..but he does not stay down for long.

A moment later and he's rolled up to a crouching position and is sending a massive fist lunging after Cammy. His gauntlets whine with the charging of the chi-tek as his the burning furnace of his internal chi is funneled into them and then he lunges a hand for her, intending on grasping her and holding her aloft long enogh to discharge a blast of explosive chi energy into her and then release her to let the shockwave of the blast do the rest.

Cammy            0/-------/=======|=======\-------\1         Potemkin

Cammy takes advantage of the slightest bit of unsteadiness, the slightest decrease in balance, the minor disruption to Potemkin's rhythm from finally managing to land a hit with visible effects, and hops backwards out of range, ducking down as a blast of Chi goes shooting over her head. She's feeling fatigue starting to get to her, on top of the pain starting to edge its way back into her awareness. She once again has to sacrifice the time to gather herself--No.

If she doesn't do something now, she probably won't be able to. Rather than trying to fight down the pain, she aims for the chink in that armor she has opened up, dashing back in and trying to evade any counter attack in order to quickly punch Potemkin's knee in the same place she struck before. A simple jab, but thrust out straight from the chest, like she's trying to punch six inches beyond her target in order to really drive her fist in there.

Cammy            1/-------/=======|=======\-------\1         Potemkin


Potemkin staggers again. His towering form, already top heavy and gorilla like, tilts and looms ..but then balances itself at the last second. The remnants of that original hit to his knee surge through him painfully but he weathers the follow up well enough.

He also knows that time has been spent and can work against him now as she pushes through what seems to be a second wind.

He lunges, swinging both of his massive fists forward at her at the same time and leaning his entire body into it. Pain ripple through his body as he forces more weight onto his knee, but he grimaces and pushes through it in an attempt to push Cammy back off of him and gain some respite while in the process slamming into her like a run away truck.

COMBATSYS: Cammy parries Potemkin's Hammerblow!!

[                 \\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////        ]
Cammy            1/------=/=======|=======\-------\1         Potemkin

Another of those massive attacks that could throw a truck comes swinging in, the torrent of disturbed air in the path of the blow almost as dangerous as the attack itself. Cammy dances back after her strike to the knee, so when that attack comes, she raises one hand and ducks under the attack, aiming at the center of weight for the attack, the joints, to push it just a little bit off course, effectively parrying it by using her lower-to-the-ground position to make up for her far lesser strength.

Splay-legged and leaning forward as she is, if she doesn't move after her maneuver, she's probably fall or stumble, so she pushes onwards, dashing back to attack that knee again with a series of kicks while her opponent is dealing with the attack he committed to passing through without really hitting anything.

She then leaps into the air, performing a body scissors grip with her legs, in a third and potential final attempt at the maneuver that didn't really work out the other two times, to twist POtemkin into the ground!

Cammy            0/-------/-------|=======\====---\1         Potemkin

Well now, things just suddenly got more serious now haven't they.

Potemkin's impact to the ground is like that of a bomb going off. A sudden shockwave rippling out, damaging nearby crates, toppling people and sending a crater splaying out through the tarmac itself and this isn't to even mention his knee ringing with incredible pain from the continued assault on it as Cammys own ruthless and relentless nature drives her to continously hammer away at that weak point.

When all is said and done, a Potemkin shaped imprint is left in the tarmac which he quickly rolls out of, staggering and stumbling back to his feet and nearly falling again as that knee almost gives out.

He then intones something that is quite possibly problematic, "LIMITER-RELEASE!"

There's a sudden sound of metal giving way, magnetic locks hissing open and then metal breaking as his main punching arms gauntlet suddenly opens and then breaks free as if hand cuffs were being taken off the behemoth. The brown skin of his massive hand is revealed, confirming this is no robot but a man in that Zeppian uniform, but as the fist clenches, the behemoths muscles begin to pile on mass and a sudden inferno heat begins boiling from him.

The uniform starts to shred, ripping apart and unable to contain the giants immense flex around that sleeve as he hauls the arm back and twists at the waist. Curling his arm up sends a flexed bicep to the size of a Buick as the ground shakes from the sheer pressure he's placing against it - his weak knee wobbling but sustaining the pressure. It seems he's bent on trying to swiftly end this.


With that he throws a punch, though it's -such- a punch that the air itself becomes pressurized with a shockwave preceeding the fist and following after. If the punch lands on Cammy or not, it will do some considerable collateral damage as the shockwave continues on, blasting into and throw walls, cargo and possibly some of the planes.

Ah well. What'd you expect?

[                  \\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////              ]
Cammy            0/-------/-------|======-\-------\0         Potemkin

Oof. There's going to be some serious need to explain to the U.S. government why Potemkin just totalled their airfield and some of their very expensive fighter jets. For her part, when Potemkin releases his limiters and starts getting out of his armor or... Whatever it is that's happening in this dramatic transformation, Cammy decides it's time to MOVE. She starts running around, trying to get out of the way of whatever's coming. Thus she was on the very peripheral edge of the shockwave that Potemkin's punch throws, a torrent of force tearing through everything in its path and sending Cammy skidding without even making contact, forcing her to crouch and shield her head with her hands for a moment.

If Potemkin is only JUST getting started with using his strength, then this isn't the time to go on the defensive. She figures he'll be guarding that knee now, but in the wake of all that destruction, maybe he won't be expecting an attack from behind. As Cammy continues circling around, she leaps up into the air and tries to wrap her arms around Potemkin's neck from behind in order to put him in a choke hold. A body like that has to use a lot of oxygen for its enormous muscles and enormous power. Maybe cutting off the flow a little, as ridiculous as her slight frame and weight managing to choke him out may seem, will give Cammy another opening to use against her opponent.

She's sure not going to try tanking one of THOSE punches.

Cammy            0/-------/------=|=======\-------\0         Potemkin

Yeah that was something of an 'oops' moment. Potemkin takes note of the collateral damage and then the fact that Cammy managed to not only avoid it but slip away. Before he can recover, he feels her arms about his neck. It is, indeed, like trying to chokehold a tree trunk but she is correct. The revelation that there is a man under that green uniform and behind that helm that somehow blacks out his features means that he indeed needs to breath even if the thick muscles of his neck is like trying to choke and twist a suspension bridge cable.

Indeed, before she can find true purchase on him, those titanic muscles are flexing again and his arms splaying out at his sides as he tilts his chest up and emits a rumbling, "RARGH!"

His muscles surge, buckling under her like a west coast earthquake.. but more then that a great heat rises from his body followed by a full on burst of multi colored energy that then explodes out of him in an area of effect blast as chi pours forth - hot and explosive and forceful. A devestating attack to try and knock Cammy from him and send her tumbling backwards in the rolling shockwave.

[                  \\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////               ]
Cammy            0/-------/-----==|=======\-------\1         Potemkin

Cammy is fast. And she seems to be getting faster as the fight goes on. Whether it's due to being a slow starter or that she was holding back before or simply that the more she learns about an opponent the more she can properly apply herself. But even for her, dodging at point-blank range like this isn't really viable. So she lets go, curls herself into a ball, and does her best to push off of Potemkin's back so that she's moving in the same direction as the explosion of muscular force and prismatic energy. Even so, it hurts.

She was just starting to get some of her strength back too. She hits the ground after flying for over a dozen feet and rolls along the increasingly less-flat ground like a leg-paint wearing pinball as the airfield gets torn up by Chi and the muscle power of Big McLargehuge over here. She uncurls and gets back to her feet, having distance to cover to get back to her opponent.

If she's going to attack from behind, she can't stay in close. It has to be hit-and-run. Get in and get out. She can do that. She hopes. She dashes once more, zig-zagging to try to avoid being predictable in her approach, and then trying to apply the power of SCIENCE to physics her throw as she aims to grab Potemkin by the arm and just throw him right the hell over her head, thrusting one palm up into his elbow so his own body levers him into the ground, while her other hand seizes what she can of his wrist and PULLS with all the strength in her tired body.

Cammy            0/-------/-----==|=======\-------\1         Potemkin

It's an impressive if daring manuever.

Potemkin also weighs 1212 kg (or nearly 2700 lbs for us anti-metric system folks.) meaning that his freakish body is not so easily pulled and in fact, he's able to leverage his weight just in the nick of time such that when Cammy makes the manuever attempt - he is basically stone still and about as close to the literal incarnation of an immovable object as you can get.

Such close proximity to him is also not entirely safe either. His punches may be capable of overturning tanks..but he can also suplex them as well.

"You have fought well." he declares, as if believing this will settle the matter of this back and forth duel. And with that he brings his other arm around to try and grasp hold of Cammy once again - intending on going sailing sky high with her once more. Save this time, if he manages it, the leap is so powerful it craters the ground beneath them both and will send him flipping end over end and spiraling into the sky before descending like an asteroid for the tarmac below.

He's got to grab her first...

Cammy            0/-------/=======|===----\-------\0         Potemkin

A normal human might have died from that. Cammy is, herself, pretty close to normal human. It takes her quite awhile of lying in that crater, before she, amazingly actually manages to put herself to her feet. She's dirty from the shattered ground, bleeding, bruised, and must be in incredible amounts of pain, but she stands up. Her stomach had lurched and a hollow feeling had filled her when they went up so high before coming down. She's calmly gauged the distance to the ground, instead of giving in to terror.

But no matter how calm Cammy may be, she can't deny that she is on her last legs. Breathing shallowly due to a sharp pain in her side every time she inhales, Cammy squints with the one eye she can open at Potemkin. Then she replies, "You as well." She should probably give up here. She doesn't need to wait to be knocked out before calling the fight. This isn't a tournament match.

But she can't return the respect showed her by giving up. Potemkin gave his all in that attack. She has to give her all as well. And she hasn't quite hit her limit yet. The pig-tailed ex-assassin rushes at Potemkin with all the speed she has built up, and goes spiralling through the air when she's close enough, her boots aimed to drill into the veritble giant forcefully.

Cammy            1/-------/=======|====---\-------\0         Potemkin

In some consieration of matters..perhaps he overdid it. Potemkin considers this possiblity but then quickly shakes it off. In the past when he allowed himself to consider if he was over doing it or not, the fighters made quick work of him. They gave it their all and so he must give it his. It just..tends to result in terrifying incidents causing craters and wrestling manuevers from multiple stories in the air.

But Cammy, though 'human', is more resilient then most normal humans could ever hope to be via her training and just general levels of skill and this is not lost on Potemkin. Especially as her next attack comes barreling at him and her tenacity refuses to let her simply yield the day.

"Herk!" rumbles Potemkin as he's driven back a few paces, skidding on his enormous feet before finally fully leaping backwards away from her.

He then leaps forward! He lunges his massive body into the air and then splays his arms at his sides and suddenly seems to launch forward and then down, arcing like a missile and thundering his massive body down towards Cammy in a full on massive belly flop.

Cammy            1/---====/=======|======-\-------\0         Potemkin

Potemkin once again smashes Cammy into the ground for like the third time this battle. His weight and strength bear down on her, crushing her and forcing her to her knees. Surely NOW she is defeated. Except... She fights against unconsciousness, actually trying with desperate strength to lift Potemkin enough to get out from under him and crawl away. Then, she actually... Gets back to her feet again. It takes her a couple tries, and her legs look about as done as Potemkin's knee, but she eventually manages it.

Then she turns, it not even clear if she can see her opponent any more through the puffiness of one eye and the blood dripping into the other. But she launches into another Spiral Arrow with the last of her strength, then unsteadily transitions into a rising kick aimed at what she estimates to be head-level for Potemkin, and then scrabbles to grab hold of something, maybe his neck, and use pure adrenaline-fuelled strength to try to choke hold him once more, and force him to the ground.

It's unlikely any of this is going to do anything. She's fighting mostly on pure stubborness at this point. And no matter the outcome, she's going to be sitting down hard and just taking the time to catch her breath while waiting for some medical crew to get here. Thankfully, they're probably already on their way after that one shockwave punch from earlier.

Not even sure if Potemkin is range to hear her, she says through a swollen jaw, "Mission completed. Thank you." One way or another, she learned a lot.

COMBATSYS: Cammy can no longer fight.

Like a wall of adamant, Potemkin barely flinches or shakes from the assault. One of the kicks, however, dislodges his helm and sends it rocketing off of his head to bounce and roll away into a shattered crate. This reveals...a horrible monster!!

No, it reveals a handsome if large, dark skinned and white eyes soldier with brown hair and a short cropped pony tail. The helm wasn't to hide his face as much as just..commit to the uniform style.

"You are welcome." he rumbles, apparently having heard Cammys final comment after all - and he then snaps a salute to her once more, respectfully,

The holographic image of a militaristic man in a long coat appears over one of his outstretched hands, just barely big enough to stand on his palm. Potemkin nods his head, still in salute-pose and rumbles. "Mission accomplished, Mr. President."

COMBATSYS: Potemkin has ended the fight here.
