An ultimatum has been sent to Portus Felix

Post by Raz »

To the military and civil commanders of the City of Portus Felix,


The Jingdaoese fleet lies before your harbour and you have fought an honourable fight to protect yourself. But there is a time for fighting and there is a time for surrendering, so far we have left most of your cities intact but if you entrench yourself to fight a fight that is lost already, we have no choice but to take drastic measures. Our fleet has the capacity to deliver several 5-ton thermobaric weapons that we will use against your city should it not surrender in 24 hours. We will make no distinction between military and civil targets and we will actively pursue the destruction of buildings that are part of your national heritage. There are only two options left for Portus Felix, surrender or face annihilation. We only give you the choice out of kindness.

An exploding barrel was dropped onto a Jingdaoese trawler in the river. After the debris was sifted, the answer was discerned.

As the ultimatum passed, Grand Marshall Xi spoke to the crews of the planes that would fly their last missions. Given the risk of the operation he saw no other option than to send them out in a kamikaze mission, fearing a more complex mission might put the entire fleet at risk. The crews nodded in silent agreement as Xi explained his reasoning. They saluted as he formally gave his orders and then left to board their planes.

Within ten minutes after the order was given, the planes took off from their first and last mission. From the outside the planes looked like regular transport planes but inside they held no other cargo than fuel in ibc's and scatter charges. As soon as the planes were airborne they were unable to land, programmed to explode the moment they would arrive at their destination.

Pilot Jiao was the first to reach the city, he grinned as he noticed small weapons trying to hit his plane. It was too late for them to stop it now. Half a minute before they would all crash at their designated sites Jiao and the other pilots prayed together. As soon as they spoke the last line of their prayer ("That we may find Grace in the Heavenly Light") their planes exploded and the city was covered in a wave of fire. At least a quarter of those who were still remaining in the city were evaporated, another quarter was burned alive. Many of the others found themselves covered in burns in a city filled with smoke and fire.

It has come to my attention that the attack was a huge success and all resistance is more or less broken. The Jingdaoese Armed Forces can start entering the city and start taking prisoners, if any survivors have not escaped the city yet, that is...
