- Miranda had stopped removing the surface debris by the time the others got their and Reaper had given his orders; Stand-by and keep scanning. So she did, feeling a little bit useless as she watched the faint pulse of life beep on her scanner. Inifinity dropped off Ira so the man could go through the wreck and get the survivor out... But only moments after Ira's feet hit soil did the ground began to shake. Before she could question what was happening, however, her scanners lit up with dots as Divided mech's grew closer to the surface. She let out a frustrated yelp and leaped into the air, hovering in spot not to far from Rabbit and Infinity.
This was no good, she was in the middle of a battle zone with a scouting unit.
The mole like OT mech's surfaced and immediately started to fire. Manticore took a hit before Miranda could maneuver away and the blow knocked girl and mech a few feet back with the crunch of metal. Miranda swore, glad that the damage was just to the surface of the mech and nothing vital. She had gotten lucky... But she was unsure how much longer that luck would remain - there was no suitable place to avoid fire out here, and she damn well wasn't going to leave...
So she did the only thing she could and dropped out of the sky, landing on top of one of the M013 units. Manticore was not a fighting unit, but her scanners were already picking off weak spots that she could reach under the relatively light armor of the Divided's mechs. She shot a pulse from the gun in Manticore's mouth right at the joint that connected the upper part of the M013 mech with the lower section and jumped away when another M013 turned to fire at her. She landed in the sand next to the convoy, and behind Infinity and Ira. She crouched down low, and using the wreckage as cover. She fired a shot at a unit that popped up behind Infinity, but it buried itself back under the sand too quickly for her to target it properly.
Her scanners were a sea of red at this point as the Divided maneuvered around the wreckage and sand dunes and she knew her usefulness was decreasing by the second. All she could really do was discourage the Divided from popping up behind Rabbit by firing shots into the sand where her scanners said a M013 was going to pop up. It only forced them to move, but it was something till she got orders from Reaper.
