Chapter 71 – The Power of Ranged Weapons
Outside the city .
Tang Yu held a telescope and observed the city gate from the roof of a small building .
The mercenaries were placed and mixed with the army’s infantry phalanx . The armored phalanx was slowly advancing forward .
A shrieking sound was heard from the distance .
Tang Yu froze and looked at the source .
A few small black spot appeared in the sky .
The black spot moved very fast, a flame trail dragged from its tail . He just saw it rising from the shelter, in the blink of an eye, the black spot reached above Maple Leaf Town .
A brilliant fire blooms .
Smoke and dust rose into the sky .
Houses collapsed as the ground trembled .
A smoke cloud rose up in the sky like a blooming flower . The smoke enveloped the entire Maple Leaf Town area .
Tang Yu held his breath .
That was the power of the ranged weapons . The damage was devastating like a nuclear bomb .
No matter how tenacious they were, most demonic beast couldn’t survive from such a devastating explosion .
Especially in the densely populated area like the area around the crack of the abyss, the explosion cleared off a huge amount of demonic beasts .
On the walls, the mercenaries were stunned .
Even the people who had seen great scene during the last day was stunned . For most people, this was the first time they saw such a scene .
Shortly after, their expression changed from shock into ecstasy .
This wave of missiles must’ve wiped out most of the demonic beast . Maybe now there’s not many demonic beast left around the crack . So, they only needed to clean out the leftover demonic beast .
Getting point rewards was too easy .
General Lu Jianjun looked at the screen . It showed the vehicles movement .
The picture wasn’t clear because the signal lost from time to times . The screen showed the explosions in Maple Leaf Town .
Compared to the delighted mercenaries, his face was solemn .
It was hard to locate the missile due to the signal jamming after the doomsday . But because the close distance between the shelter and Maple Leaf Town and the dense amount of demonic beasts, they didn’t really need accuracy .
As the missiles continued firing, General Lu Jiajun was felt distressed .
Their inventory was running low .
It’s impossible to manufacture the missiles . Not just technical issues, but the materials needed were also scarce . Before the doomsday, raw materials and part came from all over the world to produce a high-tech product . But now, even communication was impossible . Not to mention getting materials .
Aside missiles, even Lindong currently couldn’t produce tanks and helicopters .
At least they still could do some repair .
“General, should we enter Maple Leaf Town?”
An officer asked .
Lu Jianjun hesitated . “We shouldn’t underestimate demonic beast . First, send an investigation team to Maple Leaf Town . ”
The officer saluted and turned to leave .
Lu Jianjun’s word stopped the officer, “Tell them to be careful and return alive . ”
A single word .
But the weight was very heavy .
They lacked of investigation method after the doomsday so they had to send an investigation team . That’s why the scouts fighting on the front line were often the most severely injured .
Lu Jianjun already knew .
But he had no choice .
He had to get the bigger image of the scene .
It would be great if the Academy of Sciences could develop a new methods for remote investigations .
After their sacrifices, news soon came back to the shelter .
As expected, most of the demonic beast in Maple Leaf Town died in the explosion, leaving only a small part . Although the leftover demonic beast was still a lot, but they had at least reduced the threat .
Or so they thought .
“Prepare to enter Maple Leaf Town . Proceed cautiously . Do not hesitate to open fire on demonic beast . ”
The rumbling steel torrent moved forward . Crushing everything on its path .
The loud movement attracted the leftover demonic beast . The muzzle of the tank aimed forward and fired, destroying the demonic beast in front of them . They needed to eliminate everything, even if it was a fourth of fifth awakened demonic beast .
On the outskirt of Maple Leaf Town .
Buildings around here weren’t destroyed by the explosion . Most of them remained intact but moss covered the walls, leaving quite a historical scenery .
From time to time, demonic beast swarmed from the buildings to the street .
Da da da!
Gunshots sound kept ringing .
Some demonic beasts that rushed towards the steel torrent were quickly slained by the mercenaries .
Human and demonic beasts, fought for survival .
Occasionally, some mercenaries were injured and died from the attack . That was expected . The convoy slowly advanced forward to the crack of the abyss .
Maple Leaf Town, on top of a building .
Tang Yu held a telescope in his hand . He was observing silently .
He wasn’t looking at the battle, instead, he was looking for some time .
The official team of Lindong, with the Chinese military as the main force and other top-rank teams on their side .
Tang Yu was looking for Lin Wei’s team .
He found the most suitable team met the requirements from the information gathered by Gray Blade .
That team was strong, most of them were hunters . They could easily push away the obstacles that were blocking the road . Even they could easily kill some powerful demonic beasts with their teamwork .
After thinking for a while, Tang Yu took out a mirror-like item from the space backpack .
[Detection Lens: It can detect an enemy’s strength from a long distance and mark the enemy . The marking duration is one week]
This was one of the items Tang Yu bought after refreshing the market items .
This consumable item suits his need right now .
It’s effective and cheap . Well, the later point was the most important .
In addition to investigation, this item also had a mark function .
Tang Yu guessed that after solving the crack of the abyss, Lin Wei would eventually find the territory .
Most likely he would arrive at the doorstep .
But hey, he could monitor him .
“Elaine, your senses are the most highest among us . Do it . ”
Elaine nodded and took the lens .
Her eyes turned ice blue . Her long mage robe moved without any wind . Her hood fell, showing her sky-blue hair fluttered in the air .
The lens in her hand shone bright .
Tang Yu stood beside her, looking downward just to see her delicate collarbone under her neck . In front of her chest, she held the detection lens on her hands .
On the mirror surface of the lens, a picture slowly appeared .
The lens zoomed to the distance, as if they were looking from a camera from above . Lin Wei’s team was visible in the mirror .
Although they were not an army, they had heavy weapons and equipment such as tanks and artillery . There also a second-rate teams equipped with armored vehicle and heavy machine guns .
Most of them are well-equipped hunters . One by one, their strength was recorded by the lens .
From the bird’s eye view, the lens finally fixed on a middle-aged man .
Tang Yu was almost sure that man was Lin Wei himself .
At this moment, Lin Wei wasn’t on the armored car . But instead, he walked slowly, surrounded by several guards .
The guards’ strength shown on the lens were incredibly high .
And Lin Wei was hidden among them .
He observed closely .
The team was advancing slowly not because the demonic beast attacks, but Lin Wei intentionally maintained a slow speed .
From this alone, Tang Yu could see Lin Wei’s selfishness .
However, that’s not important . His point was to observe Lin Wei’s strength .
It’s a pity they didn’t have an ultra-long-range attack method . Otherwise, discreet assassination also great .
Direct attack definitely wouldn’t work .
No matter how confident Tang Yu was, he was certain the three of them couldn’t win against Lin Wei’s team .
For now, it’s better to observe quietly .
