THE BLACK VERITECHcopyright protection4PENANA9b1NhAEoVQ

Chapter 16: Time Limitscopyright protection4PENANAIawk4VjCUJ

Two years had passed since Dolza's attack and the situation on the planet was tense and calm.copyright protection4PENANAxTtyrw4t1J

The city of Macross had finally been rebuilt, as had several population centers in North America, or at least were at a high level of recovery progress, all thanks to Venezuela's oil and gas that was able to reach North America thanks to the efforts of the RDF and the Southern Cross to stop the zentraedi attacks on the supply freighters.copyright protection4PENANA2bV3YdDDBy

Khyron, who was in great difficulty, arrived in Manaus, but the Zentraedis leaders expelled him because of the suicide plans of the traitor, who was obsessed with SDF-1, while the Zentraedis leaders of Manaus took a more intelligent stance and gathered many EBSIS technicians to teach them how to repair their mechas. In fact, they had been so successful that the EBSIS top management became concerned and arranged secret meetings with Knight.copyright protection4PENANAtjJ0EOVYqP

“What you're saying to me is very worrying, Knight," Global told Knight on TV on a private and restricted military channel.copyright protection4PENANAIYJbwaIBEK

“I know, Admiral, we're out of time, it's a shame the only Zentraedi ship we have left is Breetai's.”copyright protection4PENANAlGVgKUtnx4

“And that's why we can't use it to attack Manaus, we need it for another mission.”copyright protection4PENANAW0oG12uW1U

“What mission would be more important than destroying Manaus?”copyright protection4PENANAMJTwVpHD0m

“Over and above, he discovered the coordinates of the satellite factory zentraedi," Global revealed, and Knight sat at the edge of his seat.copyright protection4PENANAol2jBNe4aL

“I understand, in that case I undertake not to allow any Zentraedi army to leave Manaus.”copyright protection4PENANA97MxNNAiKB

“We have the forces of SASTRAC and you, Knight.”copyright protection4PENANAdwk63gvKUv

Knight had not been this anxious since the morning after Dolza's attack, if the factory satellite could be recovered, it would be a turning point.copyright protection4PENANA6iQ9CsWQx7

They could defeat Manaus without risking the future of the human race in a battle of uncertain outcome, and Global had not been able to deal with Khyron and Azonia, and the re-launch of Emerson's Valkyrie program had not borne much fruit.copyright protection4PENANACGeoe2bPkV

After a couple of months, Knight breathed calmly as he saw the silhouette of the factory satellite drawn on the sky.copyright protection4PENANAzjcOIrQTgb

“Lisa, Rick, you did it.”copyright protection4PENANAPHJhtnNvw3

The joy experienced by the military high command was overshadowed by the fact that the satellite factory had suffered many damages when it arrived on Earth.copyright protection4PENANArapGGVxEnf

“This is a disaster, Admiral," Knight told Global on board the satellite factory.copyright protection4PENANAaWymKgOBa4

“I thought that with the arrival of the satellite, I thought all our problems would be solved," groaned Global in sorrow and Knight was amazed at how old and exhausted he looked.copyright protection4PENANAN0LwhfT5Kp

“What does Dr. Lang say, Claudia?”copyright protection4PENANA8bAxShtpVQ

“Claudia just shook her head and Knight swore silently.”copyright protection4PENANAE5Mdsxug9F

“Well, I guess that's the end of it.... No one can say we didn't try, we don't have Breetai's support as he has his own problems in pacifying Reno's fleet. I suppose it will be Breetai who will avenge our deaths once Manaus decides to attack in earnest," Knight said with a wicked smile.”copyright protection4PENANAlWF7tXmn26

“There's nothing you can do, Knight," asked Claudia in alarm.copyright protection4PENANANbinJaEcAA

“What could I do, only Manaus has 150,000 zentraedis, the whole Zentraedi Control Zone, that is to say the entire Amazon consists of half a million giants... I will do the same as Churchill with the Nazis... I will bluff.”copyright protection4PENANA2fGPs8nXpw

“What do you mean, Knight?” asked Global, who looked more and more exhausted.copyright protection4PENANACKtiRXfdki

“The satellite can be seen from Earth, right? Well, I'll send messages to Manaus, make them believe that the satellite factory is 100% operational and ready for the production of veritechs and mechas, as well as SDF-type ships.... Let's hope we gain time with that.”copyright protection4PENANAj7tCvcMaon

“It's a good idea, Knight," said Claudia.copyright protection4PENANAKrCqg4zE2Y

“And, Admiral, what about the Indochinese and African Quadrant?”copyright protection4PENANAbEJFWACcOX

“Things are going very badly, at least the hostile forces are fighting each other instead of uniting and confronting us.”copyright protection4PENANAu85XKAaxLy

“As I see it, Admiral, the only chance we have is the city of La Paz," Knight assured him.copyright protection4PENANAUv0xWhCwVE

“How far along are the fortification efforts in La Paz?” Claudia asked.copyright protection4PENANAu6ieLfPorD

“I'm afraid they're at 50%, we need at least a year to complete them.”copyright protection4PENANAlWMqUx144M

“One year?” Claudia said nervously.copyright protection4PENANADZhDxeU9KQ

“It is not a question of building the maginot line, which can be surrounded. We are talking about a fortress city with robotech defenses that would assure us victory over the Zentraedi Zone of Control.”copyright protection4PENANANfW6tImj6O

“How many resources," asked Global.copyright protection4PENANAWrKJSEgTIl

“Until we destroy Manaus, I fear I will need almost 100% of all available resources.”copyright protection4PENANAFllXZSbU1W

“100%? It's impossible, Knight!” shouted Claudia.copyright protection4PENANAKPbGWFpiYv

“You have them, Knight," Global interrupted, "after all, according to Dr. Lang, the satellite will be operational in two to three years.”copyright protection4PENANA6VXQEPuVJd

Global then excused himself from the officers and asked to tour the facility alone.copyright protection4PENANAgozCmyuysw

Claudia and Knight entered a factory satellite elevator with worried gestures.copyright protection4PENANAucmGTiljAj

“Claudia, what's wrong with the Admiral?”copyright protection4PENANAOGeMxTC2Ol

“It's work, he's exhausted.”copyright protection4PENANAf5KPH6ncFQ

“He got very old in two years.”copyright protection4PENANAJ935QXnbgY

"Claudia.copyright protection4PENANAv4FJRcDtfr

“He's got cancer, Knight.”copyright protection4PENANAOvwykdFHqk

Knight held the bridge of his nose with both fingers and pressed hard as he closed his eyes.copyright protection4PENANAy9uBekzCwP

“How much time does he have left?”copyright protection4PENANAB1UgLLtoeJ

“I'm... less than a year... Oh Knight.”copyright protection4PENANAP3emByAhg0

Claudia broke down and Knight hugged her and comforted her as best he could.copyright protection4PENANACO97qosZ1Y

“Does Lisa know?” Knight asked and Claudia shook her head.copyright protection4PENANAPCZJTKvm9J

“And I guess the other commanders, including Lang, don't know either.”copyright protection4PENANA5YMjkoSUG8

“Lang knows, but not so Maistroff and the other high commanders.”copyright protection4PENANAViX5qotSou

“Claudia, we must not only deceive Manaus, we must also deceive the high command in either South America or North America.”copyright protection4PENANAQd7QX0BsmK

“You're right.... But how will we do it," said Claudia, who kept on hiccuping. Knight felt his heart tear as Claudia was always so strong but now she looked so vulnerable, like the time Fokker died.copyright protection4PENANAcsIYM3nEY3

“Do you think the satellite manufactures can build at least one ship?”copyright protection4PENANANTmLZMasEz

“No, it's impossible, the satellite factory is too damaged.”copyright protection4PENANAXvN4lK4Wdr

“Claudia, I don't need a work of art, I just need a small, well, small ship by zentraedis standards, but intimidating enough to fool everyone. I need an exact replica of SDF-1 built.”copyright protection4PENANAHpTpoGtLls

“An exact replica?”copyright protection4PENANAP9mcUlZ5ND

“It does not have to be exact, instead of the Daedalus and the Prometeus, it can have two Armour fortresses. It doesn't need to be even 50% operational, I just need it to fly in from South America and set a course for Central America and the Caribbean and then head to Macross City.”copyright protection4PENANAEL9rPvcUsp

“An SDF-2”copyright protection4PENANAl9OfzdV2Zh

“Exactly Claudia, only in this way will we gain time with Manaus and the high command of the RDF.”copyright protection4PENANAvOqR1lc0q0

“I'll tell the Admiral.”copyright protection4PENANAE4LNwBjIvL

“Please Claudia, I know he'll listen to you, you have to convince him... Because we don't have time anymore.”copyright protection4PENANA8QUX6ua2x9
