Part 147: Post-Intermission
: ...I thought it'd make good training, but it was a mistake sending 'em out...
: (Jiron and the Irregulars never cease to amaze me... So they can repel direct Innocent attacks now...)
: Still, those Iron Gear folk have to pay... First my brother Gary, now my dear wife Greta...
: Then they'll need to go to a Bazaar to get parts to make repairs... All of you, listen up. We are going to embark upon a battle of vengeance! Therefore... taking the names of my beloved wife Greta, and my dear brother Gary...
: The Greta Gary will now alter course to head for Jop, and pursue the Iron Gear!
: We'll be stopping before reaching Jop... You don't mind, right, Director Biel?
: ...Then, could you please return me to P-Point?
: To P-Point...? Didn't it get attacked by the Iron Gear and its gang?
: That's why I want to return. Regardless of the director's position being endangered... I'd like to do some repair work, at the very least. Dowas abandoned P-Point, didn't he?
: Yessir, as you say.
: Don't worry. I won't run. I'll wait at P-Point for your return.
: Of course, that assumes you've beaten Jiron's group.
: Hah hah hah! You don't appreciate the Karas family's strength, Director. You may not be aware, but we got a powerful new weapon from Director Dowas.
: (.........) Then, you should have no problem returning me to P-Point, correct?
: Yes, sir. Hey, take the good Director Biel back to P-Point.
: (...Now that Kashim's started acting against our doctrine, I must contact Jiron and the Irregulars one more time... Here's hoping they beat the Karas family soundly...)
: Now, to avenge Gary and Greta! All of you, put your spirits into this!
: In the P-Point hangar. We found it while searching for parts to repair the Iron Gear.
: Cool! So you're putting three types of missile launchers on the shoulders and left arm
: It'll be heavier, but it'll pack a lot more firepower. Keep it on or take it off as the situation warrants.
: You've thought of everything.
: So, Astonaige, those extra weapons you wanted to attach to the Iron Gear, are those...
: Yeah, they're part of these full armor plans that Cotset showed me.
: I was able to do it as a rush job thanks to all these parts we've gotten ahold of.
: Some diagrams of the Preventer mechs and Gundams helped, too.
: Of course! You guys helped me round out my collection pretty quick.
: Yeah, I collect mech diagrams.
: What for?
: To get a handle on the Innocent's technology. If we could make our own mecha, then boy would they ever be red in the face. You get my meaning?
: Yeah, I get it.
: So, what happens to the Iron Gear now?
: For the moment, she's had enough repairs to move on her own.
: We'll have to find a Bazaar to scour for more parts to repair her with.
: We'll go to Captain Bright and get permission for that.
: Parts for the Gallier, sure... But why would the V2's assault parts be here?
: We did find this V2 at Zondar Epta... The Innocent were probably stockpiling things dug up from other mountain cycles.
: Then you might find the Buster parts too if you look around enough, right?
: What's up, Banjou? You're looking serious...
: Ah... It's just bothering me that the Innocent have started attacking us unprovoked.
: You do have a point...
: It must mean that they've recognized us as threats equal to or worse than the Moon Race.
: Which means, the further we venture into this continent, the more they'll attack us...
: And if they mass-produce that flying Walker Machine, that could mean trouble...
: But our primary objective is to save Elche and Tifa from captivity. Fighting with the Innocent is unavoidable.
: And we've always been prepared to fight. If they want to start a fight, it suits me perfectly.
: Whoa, whoa... That's easy for you to say!
: But, I'll do it... I'm going to do it.
