Book 7: Chapter 141: Final battle (4)
No matter how hurt the Candra Empire and Marlow Empire generals were, they had to accept a fact.
It was that in front of the Frestech Chamber of Commerces powerful military magic machines, their most precious and powerful cavalry were nothing more than high class cannon fodder.
Right, cannon fodder was something that came from the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces. It was said that because of the emergence of Magic Cannons, this word came about to describe being turned to ashes under the attacks of the Magic Cannons.
Of course, it was like Marshal Sudman had said, although these knights had been cannon fodder, it wasnt meaningless.
Although it seemed like they Rudson Frestech Allied Forces had destroyed the cavalry without any effort, in reality, they must have consumed quite a bit of their ammunition.
For the Rudson Frestech Allied Armies, there was no doubt that they would steamroll the Candra Empire in a direct battle, but that was on the basis that they had enough supplies.
Any military magic machine would need ammunition to show off their might and if there was no ammunition, they would just be useless steel shells.
This was where the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces were no different from a traditional army.
Because the ammunition was very important for military magic machines, the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces guarded their supply line very seriously.
This was a lesson that the Candra Empire had learned many times facing the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces. Although they had suffered a lot, it was very effective.
The Candra Empire and Marlow Empire armies surrounded them just to force the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces to consume their ammunition, giving them a chance.
Even if the price that they paid was terrifying, there was no other choice at this time.
Although the cavalry army had fallen, the two empires showed no signs of stopping. The elite soldiers kept charging the surrounded Rudson Frestech Allied Forces.
On the other hand, the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces kept shooting the flames of the Magic Cannons, causing giant sounds to continuously ring out across the Tara Plains.
Because they had found the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces many times, the Candra Empire gradually found a way to deal with the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces powerful firepower. They no longer used the same dense formations of traditional warfare, but rather depended on their numbers to beat the enemy, spreading themselves as much as possible. This guaranteed that each Magic Shell would cause as few casualties as possible.
Although this would make their overall battle power drop, the two empires did what they could to consume as much of the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces ammunition while also approaching their lines, trying to charge their lines to confuse their formation.
Once the two sides clashed, the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces advantage wasnt worth mentioning in front of the powerful soldiers of the two empires armies.
The Rudson Frestech Allied Forces situation appeared in front of Count Darcys eyes and his expression changed.
“Chief Hart, if we continue like this, we wont be able to maintain our supplies of Magic Shells.”
Chief Hart gave a nod, “Thats right. Based on this speed, we will only be able to maintain this firepower for less than half an hour.”
“Less than half an hour” Count Darcy was shocked, “Then……shouldnt we execute our next battle plan”
Chief Gart looked at the watch on his wrist and shook his head.
“Theres still ten minutes left, we cant rush now. Count Darcy, have your Magic Combat Vehicle squad work with our Magic tank squad, try to stall out the enemys attacks.”
Count Darcy replied before immediately turning to send down the orders.
Two minutes later, five hundred specially designed Magic Combat Vehicles from the Rudson Kingdom army worked with two hundred Frestech Chamber of Commerce tanks to swarm out of the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces lines. They were like a flood as they charged at the Marlow Empire armys lines to the southwest.
The reason they didnt choose the Candra Empire armys lines to the northeast was mainly because they were worried the enemies had dug trenches ahead of time, which would hinder the advance of the Magic Combat Vehicles and the Magic Tanks to a certain extent.
After the Magic Combat Vehicles and Magic Tanks charged out, the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces also changed their Magic Cannon fire. They focused their firepower on the Candra Empire soldiers charging from the north, no longer firing on the Marlow Empire army lines.
Seeing the several hundred Magic Combat Vehicles and Magic Tanks charging out from the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces lines like tigers, the generals of the two empires became more spirited.
In this battle, the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces had used their Magic Cannons to protect their formation and they couldnt advance at all. This was the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces first counterattack.
Although it was a bit threatening, if they thought about it, they would realized that the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces werent confident in their ammunition stock, so they could only initiate an attack to slow down their consumption.
The Marlow Empire quickly reacted to this.
The Marlow Empires Marshal Senri waved his large hand and ten thousand light cavalry in two groups that had been prepared charged forward like two sharp blades from the flanks of the battlefield.
Their task wasnt to clash with the Magic Combat Vehicles and the Magic Tanks, but rather to use their high mobility to harass them, while maintaining a threat on the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces lines. This would guarantee that the Magic Combat Vehicle and the Magic Tank squad wouldnt dare charge into the Marlow Empire army lines.
At the same time, the Marlow Empires Magic Cannons that hadnt been touched could finally let out their angry roars.
“Hong, hong, hong, hong!”
Five hundred independently developed Magic Cannons and one hundred Magic Cannons they purchase from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce previously let out attacks at the same time, releasing countless beautiful sparkling flames onto the battlefield.
It had to be said, the Marlow Empire really didnt have a grasp of the Magic Cannon technology.
The accuracy of their Magic Shells in this battle was just too terrible to look at.
It was clearly aimed at the Magic Combat Vehicles and the Magic Tanks, but only a small part was able to land in their formation. Most of them had slanted and gone off to who knows where.
As for the ones that hit That would depend on luck.
So although those Magic Cannons seemed powerful when they were shot, the damage that they had caused was minimal.
Whether it was the Rudson Kingdoms Magic Combat Vehicles or the Frestech Chamber of Commerces Magic Tanks, with their thick hulls, they didnt care about the strong impact of these Magic Shells at all.
There were some Magic Combat Vehicles or some Magic Tanks that were unlucky enough to be hit, but they were safe under the protection of their magic barriers.
But the Marlow Empires barrage of Magic Cannon fire wasnt in hopes of actually damaging the Magic Combat Vehicles or the Magic Tanks.
This had already been proven countless times in the battles between the two empires and the Frestech Chamber of Commerce camp, these horrifying monsters were simply invincible on the battlefield.
Their real goal wasnt the Magic Combat Vehicles or the Magic Tanks, but rather the ground beneath them.
Under the dense Magic Shell barrage, the smooth plains had suddenly been filled with large holes from the explosions.
These greatly hindered the advance of the Magic Combat Vehicles and the Magic Tanks, even causing some Magic Combat Vehicles and Magic Tanks to fall into the holes, becoming unable to get out.
At this time, the Marlow Empires light and heavy cavalry relied on their mobility to charge across the Tara Plains that had already been completely changed. In the blink of an eye, they crossed the distance between them and the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces.
Because there were many Magic Combat Vehicles and Magic Tanks out there, the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces wouldnt use their Magic Cannons to attack or they would hurt their own allies.
It seemed like the Rudson Frestech Allied Forces couldnt stop the advance of the Marlow Empire.
“Humph, do they really think that we only have the same move with the Magic Cannons” Chief Hart in the distant Rudson Frestech Allied Forces line saw this and gave a cold laugh. He picked up the Magic Communicator and gave his order.
After a while, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce Magic Tanks that couldnt move fast because of the hindrances in the land suddenly moved together. They quickly spread horizontally and formed a row, as if they were forming a wall to block the charge of the Marlow Empire light cavalry.
The Marlow Empire light cavalry commander saw this and didnt hesitate to give the order to charge.
These two hundred Magic Tanks seemed like they were blocking the way, but there was quite a large space between the Magic Tanks that they could easily go through.
As for how to take care of these Magic Tanks, that was for the heavy infantry behind them to take care of.
However, as soon as they had charged the front cannon of the two hundred Magic Tanks roared out at the same time.
Although it was different from the normal Magic Cannons, with the Magic Cannons of the Magic Tanks being smaller and having smaller Magic Shells, because they were so close and it was on flat ground, they were actually much stronger than the normal Magic Cannons.
With just a single round of shots, the ten thousand elite light cavalry was sent flying and almost half the knights couldnt stand up anymore.
The remnants of the Marlow Empires light cavalry naturally knew that they couldnt retreat at this time and gritted their teeth to charge in.
However, under a second round of fire from the Magic Tanks, almost a third of the knights evaporated.
In the blink of an eye, there were only less than a thousand knights left of the ten thousand light cavalry.
At this time, the roofs of the five hundred Magic Combat Vehicles from the Rudson Kingdom opened. Each Magic Combat Vehicle had two fully armoured Rudson Kingdom soldiers appear that shot down the Marlow Empire light cavalry around them.
Like this, the thirty thousand light cavalry that came from the Marlow Empire was completely destroyed.-
