They could see the city now, fire streaked some of the buildings and power had been lost in several parts of it, now they just needed...
And then they noticed, it was not obvious at first but the blue shimmering back-sprouts betrayed its presence, it was a monster.
As it reared on its hind legs it seemed to be powering something up, following was a shockwave of sorts, which killed all power in the city. EMP.
The shockwave even hit his convoy, everything went dark and the NV goggles they had made a sad dying sound before giving up.
But the BV 206's kept going, a more analog vehicle was hard to find and while the lights were out it showed little in terms of being affected.
The radio was gone however, and the fancier vehicles in the convoy had to be abandoned.
After a quick stop picking up a bunch of the others and packing them in the BV's the remaining convoy sped up to get to Bodö as quickly as possible.
The streets were chaos, people running for their lives, fires all over, firemen and police desperately trying to help with what they could. Kristers BV stopped and disembarked its cargo before beginning to gather up a bunch of civilians to get them out of there.
Cpt Janson approached some police and asked for a report.
-"The thing has fried all electronics, most cars are dead and we're having a hard time evacuating people." He panted in broken english, knowing the battlegroup members came from all over.
-"Right, our BV's have survived the EMP and are at your disposal, let's get these people out of here!" The two nodded at each other and immediately went to work.
The extra manpower was sorely needed and the battlegroup set up lines, barricades and directions to the evacuation zones. Kristers unit were tasked with guiding people a bit into town, Ågren positioning them in a human wall so as to easily guide the fleeing people.
But only minutes after setting up, a mass of fleeing people came their way, just as they began to brace for impact, they noticed why they were running.
They were being chased by Neurotis, which scooped up groups of people with its mouth as it effortlessly followed them along.
Krister knew where this was going, he was already moving when Ågren roared.
-"OPEN FIRE ON IT!!! Spread out!"
He slammed his HMG down on a car, cocked it and opened fire. The heavy rifle spewing out heavy calibre bullets, kicking like crazy and with the sound of a thunderstorm. People visibly recoiled from the gun but quickly returned to fleeing from their predator.
The rest of the group opened fire, Ågren producing a flare pistol which he fired towards the monsters head as it closed in to help with vision.
Neurotis being visibly upset by these annoyances in her meal, made a sound more akin to displeasure than pain and moved up.
-"Get the people out of here! COVER THEM!!! Begin breakoff!" Ågrens words were barely audible over the clamour, soldiers popped off a few rounds before breaking off, trying to guide the mass of people, but in practicality joining in in the stampede. One got a bright idea and popped a flare torch and held it tall, in an attempt to guide the mass. Several other soldiers joined in.
Jonas was one of the last to break off, Krister just having reloaded began to fire anew.
-"Let's go!" Ågren shouted while smacking Kristers left shoulder, finally getting the response he wanted. They began to fall back but Neurotis was upon them.
Her foot tore through a few buildings and sent a silver compact suv flying towards them. It slammed into a building and bumped Ågren hard who was tossed to the ground by the force.
Thinking fast, Krister stopped and tossed him over his shoulders and ran into an alley, in the nick of time as Neurotis foot set down and crushed the suv behind them.
With a jump, Neurotis skipped a block and gave chase once more to the frantic people.
But soon after, it seemed like it was done. If it got tired, scared or bored no one knew, but with a few graceful trots and a leap it disappeared into the ocean.
No one could believe it, a monster, a kaiju. In Bodö.
Soon after the battlegroup was reorganized, few casualties, only one dead. Sadly the same could not be said about the civilian population.
They worked day and night to evacuate the city, which would take some time. But the worst was over for now....
It knew where each of its minions were, whatever action they were taking. So when 8 were hit and three of them were taken out simultaneously by an EMP burst that confounded it.
But that didn't matter, this settlement was now in sight, without effort three new Cyclopii were born from its disc and joined in the formation around the enemy.
The formation was set, the assault would now begin.
It was here Cyclopean spotted the other Kaiju, a dinosaur looking thing on its hind legs staring right at Cyclopean.
With a few hand gestures, similar to eastern martial arts, palms held open and flat Cyclopean let out a wail of white noise heralding the attack of its Cyclopii. Pointing at her with an outstretched palm.
Blazing up with blue lights, the perfect circle of 100 dived down and flew right towards Neurotis, in perfect unison they unleashed bright blue energy beams which slammed into the monster from every direction, hurting its skin but little more.
Neurotis wailed as it was bombarded from all sides. The Cyclopii broke off in a unified but complex pattern, with about half closing in further and engaged with polearms.
With hit and run, the minions hacked at Neurotis, making small gashes here and there, one got a clean hit on one of the barbs on her sail, which was cut deeply and was now slightly bent.
Rearing from the pain, she jumped back and crushed a city block. Her tail sweeping through several other buildings as the sail caught several Cyclopii off guard as they crashed right into it, sending burning debris falling around her.
The orange flames highlighting her jet black skeletal form.
With a flourish of hand movements, Cyclopean resumed its resting pose with hands outstretched and began to close in, the buildings it passed over freezing in an instant.
Its eye transfixed upon Neurotis.
