Sabertooth - Chapter 16
Chapter 16: Conflict
Soon Bagley’s office received the transfer order and completed the assembly, and boarded the train to Washington at the local train station.
The situation in the entire United States has now become a mess, starting with the declaration of independence and attacking Fort Sumter in South Carolina, like a drop of water in a hot oil pan.
The oil pan of the United States was completely exploded. First of all, President Lincoln asked the North and South states to immediately form an army to suppress the result of the rebellion.
The northern states immediately responded positively, and assembled their elite troops to quickly march toward Washington.
However, the states at the junction of the North and the South refused to send troops, and even rose up, separated from the Northern Federation and joined the Southern Alliance.
The first to respond to South Carolina was Virginia. This state is strategically located, only one river away from the federal capital, Washington.
And the departure of Virginia also cost the Federation a very outstanding general, that is, the chief general in the South of the Civil War: Robert Lee.
He first rejected Lincoln’s order to invite him to serve as the supreme commander of the EFF, and then turned to serve as the commander of the Virginia Army.
Under his leadership, the local forces of Virginia quickly defeated the Federal Garrison in Virginia, and seized many equipment and materials of the Federal Army Factory, and then these equipment were shipped to the south for the southern army. Production of firearms.
He then led others to capture the Federal Naval Base in Norfolk, Virginia, the largest naval base in the United States at the time. This time the EFF responded in a timely manner, burning all the buildings and blasting all the ships during the evacuation, which left the Southern Alliance Fleet at a disadvantage when facing the Northern Federal Fleet at sea.
However, the actions of the Virginia Army have scared President Lincoln, and maybe one day the surnamed Li may lead someone to Washington, successfully turning him into the last president of the United States.
So he sent an urgent telegram again, requesting the reinforcements of the northern states to speed up their support to Washington, otherwise the Southern Army might have a new year in Washington.
In this situation the Fifth Cavalry Regiment was recruited to Washington for support. In addition to supplying the necessary supplies, a train was provided to all the way to Washington.
A train that was supposed to be open all the way was accidental at the border between Kentucky and Virginia. A Virginia guerrilla crossed the border and blew up the railway to Washington.
The train driver, who discovered that the railway was blown up had to make an emergency brake, and finally stopped the train when the train was about to break out of the track.
Just when he was thankful that the train did not get out of the track, a bullet pierced his head, and as his vision gradually darkened, his life also moved away from his body.
The train driver was only the first loot of the Virginia guerrillas ambushing on both sides of the railway. They had already ambushed on both sides of the railway. When the train stopped, they climbed out of the bunker and opened fire on the train.
They have to be thankful that at that time the machine gun is not perfect enough. It is a heavy weapon on the gun mount. The long-distance guerrillas cannot carry it at all. Otherwise, Victor’s colleagues may be killed here.
But even without the firepower of machine guns, the soldiers of the Fifth Cavalry Regiment, who were caught off guard, were still suppressed in the train and unable to organize a powerful counterattack.
At this time, Victor, who realized that the situation was not good, took the initiative to find Bagley, and asked the soldiers to lead a charge, disrupt the enemy’s attack rhythm, and fight for Bagley’s counterattack.
Bagley know that Victor is different from ordinary people, so he naturally welcome Victor’s request, but the group of soldiers under Victor is not so happy.
Although it is the elite of the Fifth Cavalry Regiment, no one likes this task, which is almost a death, but Victor went daringly.
But it was better to charge with a rifle than to torn the people by hands. The soldiers, who had been sent to the woods to clean the battlefield, passed Victor back to the army.
Victor paid the price for his bloody behavior in the woods. The criticism was ruined. The soldiers looked at him, he look like a perverted murderer.
However, this is not without benefits, at least they are happy to make the right decision.
After all, life is so precious, is it too long to provoke the guy who has such names as ‘Animal’ and ‘Broken Heart’.
The life is all your own. To provoke this trivial matter is to seek death, even if it has not been torn, the other person is a sergeant.
In the end, Victor successfully controlled the dozens of soldiers under his deterrence, at least they were convinced to follow his order.
And this time, Victor took a pit father mission, but it was not completely mortal. Although the charge of the rifle of this era would be a heavy loss, but it will not appear to be cut by a machine gun situation.
As a grassroots officer Victor, he became the leader of the charge. This guy relies on his physical advantage.
He directly rushed out of the carriage, and instantly attracted most of the firepower. After all, he was the first federal soldier to rush out the carriage.
The guy was zigzagging on his way to charge, and was rolling left and right. The taillights of the bullets, which were thrown over, were no longer visible. He even recovered the thrill of playing jedi survival before crossing.
At this time, everyone will think that he has a self-healing factor. So why not just go past the firepower, and just use the rifle to shoot.
However, Victor had some considerations. Although the past is cool, but still it’s the time, when superstition and science coexist. The acceptance of supernatural abilities is still very low. Even if the sky lantern is lighted up as a demon. After all, he was confident that he would still be able to run away, but his plan to advance through the military and then use the power of the US military to solve Red Wolf must have been ruined.
That’s why he is uses snakeskin to walk around and roll around to hide bullets, he can still fool the past with his own excellent physical fitness. It is theoretically feasible and not too terrifying.
Thanks to Victor’s snakeskin tumbling all the way to attract the opponent’s attention, his men were able to rush out of the train, and then began to cross cover, launched a real charge towards the local position.
There were two ways of charging on the field, one of the federal elite’s cross cover charge, using the cover and the rifle in his hand for cross cover, step by step, gradually approaching the enemy position.
The other one is a battlefield personal show of a large cat, snake-shaped walking, stuck in front of each bullet hitting his heel. As he ran, there was dust and sand all the way behind him, all of which were craters hit by bullets.
He also ran in a roll and hid behind the bunker, watching the local positions symbolically. In fact, he had long locked his first target with his unique beast intuition: the commander of the guerrillas.
Fortunately, this personal show did not last long. After all, in this era when the effective range of the rifle was only 400 meters, it was only 10 seconds or so for Victor to run through this distance, which is still not too amazing for him.
The successful Sabertooth was siege immediately, and several soldiers of the Southern Army rushed towards him with a bayonet.
The first, who attack, was a small soldier with brown hair. He wore a uniform similar to the EFF, bent down and launched a sharp straight stab at Victor’s throat with a flashing bayonet.
This trick was developed when he dealt with tall attackers before. His short stature not only become a disadvantage, but also became an advantage in his stab.
From the bottom up, the assassination directed at the throat is very difficult to parry. This trick is also required in the bayonet surgery in the army, and it has been unsuccessful after repeated trials.
Faced with the shock of the small Southern Army soldier, Victor kicked him.
The small soldier flashed across the battlefield. The little soldier who was kicked felt like he was hit by a Mercedes-Benz carriage.
The gun in his hand and the ribs in the chest, which were kicked, turned into several pieces, and the broken rib was inserted into his lungs, making it difficult for him to scream.
Well, let this little brother fly in the sky for a while, and talk about the situation of his other comrades.
At the moment of kicking the short soldier, Victor took advantage of the side to escape, but the two soldiers stabbed him with a bayonet, and then he turned and cut the throat of the two soldiers with their bayonet.
After solving the two sneak attack soldiers, they smashed the head of a Southern Army soldier who rushed over with a gun butt. At this time, the heavenly brown-haired soldier fell to the ground.
The other Southern Army soldiers rushed over because Victor resolved their four comrades in almost an instant.
The opportunity at this moment was seized by Victor, and he rushed towards the commander of the guerrillas of the southern army, and the soldiers of the southern army reacted to stop him.
But the Southern Army that rushed up was not Victor’s united enemy, either kicked or killed by a bayonet. Victor also had two rifles in his hand. He always used too much force and broke the gun when picking people.
The soldiers of the Southern Army saw that the bayonet could not solve Victor, so several officers pulled out their pistols. They wanted to solve him with pistols.
However, they found that even if they were shooting with a pistol in close range, their reaction speed could not keep up with Victor’s figure. They failed and instead injured a friendly soldier by mistake, so they gave up the plan to pistol.
Continue to allow the soldiers to stop Victor with a bayonet, and let the guerrilla commander evacuate. This time the blocking task has been completed for more than half.
They blew up the railway and effectively killed the federal soldiers in the train. There is no need to waste time with the monster here.
And because of Victor’s toss, Victor’s squad was too late to rushed to the Southern Army position, and then they started a melee fight with the opponent.
Under the command of Bagley, the Union soldiers in the carriage surrounded this side, and the commander of the guerrillas, who had seen the bad situation, immediately issued an order to retreat, and then rode the horse that had been prepared for running away.
The Southern Army soldiers who were ordered also began to leave the battlefield, and Victor did not mean to kill them. After all, his goal was only military exploits, not to kill people. He embraced his wildness, but it did not mean that he wanted to indulge in killing and lose himself.
