Chapter 60: Four Eyed Celestial Dragon!
Han finally understood Long Chuan’s strategy, and he also realized the risk associated with this tactic. With the Atlantic cruiser facing the enemies in the sky while the special tactic teams seizing control of enemy battleships on the ground, there were no problems with these two moves and they could even be called a plan written by god, easily qualified to be included in textbooks.
But, there was a huge problem in this battle plan, and that was the 1st Legion plus Wolf Fang squad in total having only about 10,000 esper soldiers. Was it really enough to annihilate the enemy’s 15,000 merciless galactic raiders?
If the 1st Legion cannot win this fight, then the tactics, no matter how brilliant they were, would be overshadowed. In this war, the ground battle was the key that decided everything. If the raiders won, then they will immediately provide reinforcements for their own fleet and attack the Atlantic, resulting in all of the previous tactics and achievements becoming completely overturned!
So, the 1st Legion must achieve complete victory. There was no other way!
As Han envisioned, the 1st Legion took advantage of the enemy’s panic phase and achieved good results. Long Chuan led the vanguard and pushing forward nonstop, slaying countless raiders on the way.
But soon, the raiders got a firmer footing. Under the pressure of a few powerful leaders’ strong pressure, any deserter would be beheaded, leaving no choice for all the pirates and raiders but to strike back at Earth’s army.
“I will kill whoever that dares to take a step back!” Lucas raised his arms and released two lightning bolts, instantly turning two retreating men into burned black carbon.
The chief of Thorn Bird raiders was not only an intermediate 5-star esper, but also an extremely powerful thunder descent esper! And thunder descent had an S rank among all super powers, equipped with high speed and powerful damage.
All other groups’ chief also followed Lucas, and for those outlaws that had always been ruthless, they killed a crowd of raiders that were thinking of leaving without any hesitation.
“Fight or retreat, either way is death. Brothers, let’s give it our all!”
“Kill those damn monkeys from Earth!”
“Kill them, and then we can go grab women on Earth!”
The pirates and raiders all rallied together out loud and began to strike back.
These people are all brutal murderers that could kill people without blinking. They had lived their lives licking blood off of their weapons so they were extremely vicious when it comes to battling to the death.
Suddenly, the situation started to progress towards the unfavorable direction for the 1st Legion. After all, the 1st legion was just recently established. In terms of battle experience, they were not the outlaws’ opponents, so when these raiders started to strike back desperately, the 1st Legion actually couldn’t make any further advances, and the vanguard troops were stuck in a close combat situation.
At this moment, Long Chuan was at the center of the regiment leading the main attack, and he knew very well, in addition to tactics, what was also extremely important in war was momentum and morale!
There was a good old saying, do it in one breath, or then you will tire and finally you will be exhausted. If they can’t take care of all the enemies at once, then with the 1st Legion’s fewer numbers and without the reinforcement of special tactical troops, the situation will only get worse.
So far, the special tactical troops had successfully completed their mission and seized at least 4 enemy battleships, quickly turning their cannons around and started firing back at the raiders together with the Atlantic.
But, the special tactical troops and the Atlantic were already barely dealing with a large number of enemy battleships, so it was impossible for them to provide any reinforcements to the ground troops anytime soon.
The efficacy of interceptor bombs still had 27 more minutes before ending, so even if the special tactical troops and Atlantic could establish superiority in aerial warfare, they still wouldn’t be able to fly around the battleground to provide reinforcements. Now, the 1st Legion could only rely on themselves and its 49 men Wolf Fang squad.
If not dealt with quickly, the enemies will only gain more advantages!
Long Chuan finally decided, he raised his arm and delivered a hint, it’s the signal for everyone to take drugs!
Seeing the signal, all soldiers quickly took out the long-prepared nuclear energy pills, and then swallowed it whole!
These were illegal drugs are from the Galactic Dark Net, one single pill could increase their source energy index by 50%.
That is, for a soldier that originally had 1000 units of power source index, after taking the nuclear energy pill, it will increase to 1500 units, substantially increasing the combat power.
Illegal drugs, they have become a characteristic of the Earth army. Drugs like nuclear energy pill were only sold on the dark net, and its usual buyers were criminals or killers. Who can expect the official army of a country to take illegal drugs together?!
But in order to win, Long Chuan couldn’t consider too much anymore, the stakes placed on this war was too much, almost dispatching all the elite forces on Earth and putting the fate of the entire planet of Earth on the line!
The 1st Legion espers that were just feeling exhausted took the drug, and they immediately felt their body bursting with energy! Even their eyeballs turned red!
And Long Chuan, he threw a handful of drugs into his mouth when no one was looking. No one knew what types nor how many types of forbidden drugs he took, but in fact, Long Chuan was already giving this battle his all. Ever since the beginning, he didn’t intend to go back to Earth alive!
The serious illness did not leave too much time for Long Chuan. For now, he was the strongest esper soldier on Earth. He felt that it was his duty to fulfil the obligations of a soldier during the last stage of his life, and that was to lead the United Government’s troops and secure a historical iconic victory!
So, that was why Long Chuan would be this crazy this time, completely disregarding everything else!
Long Chuan let out a tremendous roar, raising his hands high above his head with white light gathering between his palms. Suddenly, a stream of light rose out and coiled into a giant dragon!
“Look! It’s Long Chuan’s Four Eyed Celestial Dragon!”
“So powerful! Wasn’t there a rumor saying that Long Chuan was seriously ill and no longer has the energy to summon his celestial dragon anymore? Looks like we really underestimated him.”
All the soldiers of the Wolf Fang squad saw the giant dragon that suddenly appeared in the sky and admired.
Not only did Long Chuan have the highest level, without the appearance of Han’s Void End, Long Chuan’s also the possessor of the strongest power on Earth! The rare source energy fantasy descent!
Espers that possessed this type of power could summon a eudemon through the release and materialization of their source energy. The shape of the eudemon differed based on the ability type. According to standards in the Milky Way, the eudemon that Long Chuan summoned should be called mad python, but since Long Chuan’s name had a “dragon” in it (TL: Long means dragon in Chinese), people were more willing to call this snake a celestial dragon.
Due to the overdose of nuclear energy pills, the dragon that Long Chuan summoned was a lot bigger and even more shocking than any he summoned before!
The dragon had four eyes because Long Chuan’s level was at the pinnacle of 4 stars. Although he was born with excellent talent, he could never make the final step to five stars, otherwise this dragon would be five eyed and also substantially more powerful.
The Four Eyed Celestial Dragon out! Both the heaven and earth were in shock!
Under the control of Long Chuan, this dragon started to rip through the enemy formations, tearing through any life it saw!
Because it was made of source energy, the celestial dragon wasn’t afraid of any attacks and it was completely fearless! It drove the pirates and raiders right into disarray!
“F**k! They actually have a source energy fantasy descent!”
“Such a powerful snake! We can’t hold it anymore! We must retreat!”
The raiders and pirates were all crying, just when they finally established a firm foothold, they were forced to retreat.
The situation was reversed again!
The 1st Legion’s powerful offense was like the tidal wave, giving the enemy so much pressure that they couldn’t even breath!
Long Chuan looked up proudly, watching the retreating enemies, he decided to inject a cardiac stimulant to this war!
“Let the Wolf Fang group go to right wing! We must remain resolved and win this war!” Long Chuan said to his deputy Ge Ce in a hoarse voice and bloody red eyes.
