I was sold at the lowest price C320: Struggle / Jean
While Nanami and the strong enemy magicraft were fighting, the enemy forces were constantly making fierce attacks. At this rate, Pehu’s Gigantes would not be able to hold out much longer.
We can leave the strongest enemies to Nanami, but we have to deal with the other enemies on our own…….Even so, our forces are limited. I’m not sure what to do.
Ganesha of Lorgo, who had fallen due to the attack of the strong enemy plane, stood up. He was about to join Nanami, but I stopped him.
“Lorgo! Leave that to Nanami, and you go back to the vanguard. Pehu won’t last alone.”
“I know, but Pehu is in trouble too. Nanami can take him out in a heartbeat.”
“All right…….Nanami is strong. She’ll be fine…….”
The fight between Nanami and the strong enemy magicraft continued on an even footing. But who the heck are you to go toe to toe with Nanami, who has a Ludia value of 500,000?
Farma cleared that question up for me. It’s no wonder she’s a magicraft fanatic.
“Jean. The magicraft fighting Nanami might be the Demon God of Lubel.”
“What the hell, Farma, is that true?”
“Maybe……the magicraft is different, but the crest on its chest is the same as the Demon God’s.”
If he’s the Demon God of Lubel, then even children know things are troublesome.
Keimaios, one of the Twelve Heavenly Masters and one of the two wings of the Kingdom of Lubel, no wonder he’s that strong. But how is it that he’s able to go toe-to-toe with Nanami, who’s grown up beyond recognition?
Lorgo also returned to defend the vanguard, but the situation only worsened. One by one, the heavily armored magicrafts in the vanguard were defeated, and the defensive walls were slowly being removed. It would be impossible to endure like this.
I was about to make a decision.
“Alana, what’s the situation over there?”
“It’s not good. There are too many of them and we can’t handle them. At this rate, it’s only a matter of time before the formation collapses.”
“Kiyone. How’s it going over there?”
“It’s tough here too. There are so many strong magicrafts that we can’t handle them all. Our allies are fighting well, but there’s no way to make up the difference in numbers.”
As expected, the situation in the other battlefields did not look good either. I guess that’s the only way to go here.
“This is the Iron Knights. I have an urgent proposal to the commanders. We can’t hold off the enemy at this rate. How about all the troops retreat to the rear base and defend it?”
The rear base would be very close to the city. There was a possibility of damage to civilians, and there was also the danger of enemy forces pouring into other areas of the Amurian Union.
Even at the risk of expanding the battlefield and endangering the civilians, I thought it was necessary to buy some time here.
“If we retreat to the rear base, we won’t have much left. The base will probably be completely surrounded, and if the reinforcements arrive too late, we’ll be wiped out.”
“I agree with your suggestion, we will only be annihilated on this battlefield if we continue like this. We should fall back to the base and wait for reinforcements.”
“What’s the status of the reinforcements in the first place? It’s already been three days and no reinforcements have arrived from anywhere!”
The delay in the arrival of reinforcements probably had something to do with the deployment of mass-produced magicraft and the modification of the military with the implementation of the Salamander main gun.
Simply put, the timing of the invasion was too bad. It takes a long time just to move an army in the large Amurian Union. Including the preparations, it was impossible to predict how long it would take for the reinforcements to arrive.
There were many commanders who expressed concern about withdrawing to the base, but it was still decided that there would be no other choice.
However, retreating in this situation is not easy. I thought it would be necessary for the Iron Knights and the trainee troops to cover the retreating troops.
