| wolf-in-hell chapter 4 . 3/15
I just found this, and as there are not enoug bolo crossovers, or ME citadel getting curbstomped stories, i have to wonder what happened to the next chapter mentioned, even if its been almost 5 years.

Chapter 5 died, apparently. Still, it's fun to read this, and especially nice to see another Schlock Mercenary - Bolo fan. That's one crossover I would love to see. (Petey, meet Nike?)

i'm going to stop you right there. If i remember correctly the XXXI's main gun could put out 5 megatons per shot. each of it's infinite repeaters could put out 500 kilotons per shot. the battle screen of the Bolo can take several shots from it's main gun before failing. The Spinal cannon of the ME dreadnaught can put out around 50 kilotons. This is capable of one hit killing any ME ship below it's class. The Bolo's battle screen should have been able to tank the ME guns all month long since they are immune to pretty much any kinetic weapon that isn't moving fast enough. The Bolo can think fast enough that it should have predicted the ME ships were about to fire from the fact that the guns were moving. to put this into even better perspective a reaper dreadnaught with a 435 kiloton yield was more then a match for a fleet several times larger than the one seen here. The Citadel doesn't need to fear the Hellrail, it needs to fear the infinite repeaters.

i hope you continue this story. Don't forget ME battles are quick so the don't cook because of their main guns, run on-board combat electronics and other things, deep cold of interstellar space battles last longer then those close to stars.

Actually, the biggest rounds fired by the Citadel dreadnoughts are about the size of a modern car, and just go very fast. Also, the reason slugthrowers were phased out is that battlescreens are immune to kinetic weapons that could reasonably be mounted on anything smaller than a planet. So a battlescreen could just sit there and take everything the citadel has and just go "meh". The superior range thing is sensible though, and could work if they had big enough guns. Or if the Citadel gets desperate, they may just do something like attempt to fix up the Leviathan of Dis. AKA a reaper corpse. WE ARE *HELLRAIL* would be pretty funny. After all, the reapers are not used to ships capable of one-shotting their dreadnoughts with a cruiser.

Well this looks nice.

Alright, now listen up, you my friend have underestimated Bolo-verse completely. If you want I'll give you all the data you need and maybe call a few friends that have much more knowledge on the verse than me.
Also, Battlescreens is Mono-permeable Anti-Kinetic Battlescreen. Anything not significantly massive enough will be instantly shreaded without any remorse. Kinetics and lasers are dead because of this defense. Now a hellbore/hellrail is essentially a sort of casaba howitzer mixed with a railgun. The 'bolt' is rated at kt or Mt/s because of how battlescreens work...
Also, beta is needed so badly it hurts...

Its...So...Beautiful. I cried manly tears of joy. We need the next chapter to bring it to an end. If only to give us closure. You must end this!
