ASA 0148 (Actual Space Age): Sahara Desert, Africa - Day
The control bunker's monitor is filling with a large amount of data with two surveillance images. A soldier is walking towards a lady and salutes to her. "Ma'am, we are ready to start the test run on H2 & X1." The lady spoke back, "Tell her do not destroy my X1 or I'll force her to resign her position. Immediately!" "Roger that Ma'am," said soldier as he runs back to the control panel. "Green light to H2. You are clear to begin the test run, over." "Sigh~ here we go. PTX-02, Huckebein Mark II launch" said the pilot. A black mobile unit emerges from a container and over looking towards the desert. Another unit had already been deployed into the field. "X1 on the field, ready to commence test run." Said Future Tech Test Pilot. "Make sure she gets a beating out from you." Said the lady. "Roger! President Kingsly." As two units making their way towards the test site, an alarm sets off as a signal for the pilots to start the test run.
President Kingsly is watching behind the bunker's protective screen and smiling coldly as the two units are engaging a melee fight. The Mark II armed only with a long blade and CIWS with mock rounds while the X-1 was armed with its twin anti-armour mock payloads and twin anti-armour ray guns. As Mark II continues to hit X-1 with her blade, X-1 dodges with ease as X-1's ray guns are charging. The Mark II pilot wondered why she only given a blade to attack the Mobile Armour, she sensed something was wrong and proceed with caution. Suddenly out of the blue, the twin ray guns fired towards the Mark II's cockpit and destroyed it. The soldiers was shocked by the incident and quickly rushed to the test site. President Kingsly steps away from her spot and calls someone. "It's done; she won't be producing the next-gen Mobile Armour, so when we can settle out contract?"
