Tinder freezes for a second as she sees everything that is going in up here, getting quite worried about Foxtrot once she sees the state of him. Not wanting to just run into the fight, figuring that would only cause more problems. She moves ahead a bit before becoming still and focusing in freezing the director, to slow his movements and maybe even stop him if she can.

The clang of the knife deflecting the bullet draws the Director from his prior engagement, in the corner of his vision he sees a familiar pegasus charging towards them. An increasing chill surrounding him alerts the green unicorn of Tinder's presence, the work of the only other unicorn apart from Foxtrot on the roof. Now aware of his targets, he surrounds himself once more with a magical aura, slowing the effects of the arctic cooling on him. With his free hoof he lands a hook on his opponent’s nose, following through with a kick that sends the rogue agent dropping his machete and flying into Broadshield, knocking them both down onto the concrete. Looking to the orange mare, he fires a single magical blast towards her before focusing on the helicopter. Eyes glowing bright, he siphons the last of his magical energy to his hooves, knowing he only has a single shot. By the Director's definition of a single shot, it's rather several in an organized volley. The entire roof begins to shake as the metal girders underneath twist and turn, large cracks bursting around the group. A churning echo roars above the howl of the winds as five massive steel girders erupt from the roof; a third of the ceiling collapsing into the room where they all met. All pointed towards the Blackhawk, Yankee sends them hurtling towards the airborne squad. One takes out the tail rotor, as another punctures one of the engines; two of them miss, crossing the blades and splintering them apart as the last one manages to be the only miss. The aircraft begins to lose control, spinning eratically as it drops towards the edge of the ceiling.

Ears ringing, Foxtrot gets up and off of Broadshield, seeing the helicopter careening towards impact with the remains of the roof. He starts to sprint towards it, his hooves glowing brightly as he comes to a sudden stop. Standing up, he points his front hoofs towards the aircraft, surrounding it with a magical aura as his back hoofs cement themselves onto the floor. The helicopter's speed and spin drastically slow down as it nears the unicorn. With less than a meter to spare it comes to a complete stop, the agent close enough to see Bravo and Juliet still inside. "Ah sh!t they g-" A sharp pain paralysis the unicorn, letting his grip go on the aircraft, leaving to fall a short distance only. He looks down to find his own blade piercing through his torso, his vision blurring as his head begins to feel feint. The feeling shatters as its pulled out, the hooked end tearing at his flesh as he drops to the floor, adrenaline and pain filling his mind. His brown eyes look up to meet Yankee's as the Director flicks off the blood from the steel. Reaching down, the agent draws his crossbow pistol, the weapon only being kicked off towards the general direction of the orange unicorn.

Morgan popped her eye out of the scope with complete disbelief. Her bullet bounced off a random knife that... Those ponies from before. She still recognized them.
"Forget it! Lets get out of he-" by the time she could finish she saw projectiled headed her way.
"Heads up!" She shouted but there was no use. The chopper jolted and the arrrow in her back sctually went in deeper as sher back met the floor of the chopper.
"Hold on!" She shouted before suddenly the spinning stopped. She made eye contact with Fox before the chopper crash landed softly on the roof hanging off into the hole in the roof causing morgan and the rest of her team to slide toward the pilot seat due to the tilt. Groans could still be heard from chopper as the SEAL team all tried to get up

Before Broadshield can do anything, he gets knocked to the ground by Fox, courtesy of everyone's favorite director, Yankee. Looking around, he sees a laser being fired at Tinder. Grabbing his katana, he throws it at the beam, hoping to deflect it or stop it entirely, but it's all jus up to Lady Luck. He soon feels the ground, rumble beneath him. Suddenly the floor collapses beneath him, Broadshield barely rolling away from the hole in the ground. "What the **** is with this guy?!?" He yells out in shock. Getting up, he sees the Blackhawk coming down. Reaching into his earpiece, he opens up every channel. "All units, Blackhawk down! I repeat, Blackhawk down! Get everyone out of here!" He yells. Soon after is absolute chaos on all channels as Equinox does everything to evacuate. Looking up again, he sees the Blackhawk come to a stop, only to get stabbed by Yankee. "No!" He yells as he pulls out his TEC-9 full-auto pistol and charges Yankee from behind, firing towards his backside. He didn't care whether he lived or died, he had to pay.

Tinder doesn't notice the laser coming at her until it's too late for her to do anything about it. She stares at it as the katana thrown by Broadshield manages to hit it and move it a tiny bit to the left, so instead of a direct hit it goes through her bag. It destroys the contents of her bag, and runs down her whole side. Seriously hurting her and destroying the things she spent so much on. She falls back a bit as it hits her, reaching back and touching her side, looking at her hoof and seeing the blood on it. With all the adrenaline and pain medication in her, she can barely feel it, she's more angry about the fact that he just ruined her belongings. She sees the crossbow that was kicked at her and grabs it in her magic,  lining up the perfect shot and firing when he seems distracted.

The rattle of automatic fire rings around Yankee, a stray round grazing him in the leg and turning him to Broadshield. A second later, Tinder's bolt punctureshis shoulder, sending the Director reeling back. Instead of resisting, he uses the momentum to roll backwards, out of the Equinox's line of fire and exposing his ally instead. Foxtrot looks up to spot the green unicorn rolling into one of the roof's holes before his mind is struck with pain as two rounds from Broadshield's weapon strike his flank and side; his new armor stops the second round from puncturing his body, keeping him alive. "F@#&!" The agent roars over the winds around them, actually sitting up momentarily before falling back from dizziness. Whether Yankee was fighting or not, Foxtrot tries to patch himself up; he reaches into his pockets and pulls out a blue roll of medicated wrap, a custom product of Nivalia. Opening his heavily stained jacket, he sees the gash still pouring out blood. Rolling some out, he manages to apply it to his front injury, the wrap then  cleaning, swelling, and numbing the area. His vision begins to fade again, the unicorn dropping the wrap just to stay awake.

As Yankee drops onto the floor, he grunts in pain as he looks over the bolt in his shoulder. Reaching over, the unicorn yanks it out, gritting his teeth in the meantime. Looking around, his expression turns to joy as he finds himself in the supply room, many of the weapons and gear still present besides one of their glider packs. Regardless, he walks over and plucks a flashbang grenade from the counter as well as his own crossbow. After loading and slinging it over his shoulder,  he makes his way back to the conference room to find the crashed helicopter. Heading over, he sees his fellow Directors as well as the SEALS all bunched together by the front. With a devious grin he runs over and arms the flashbang grenade, "F@#$ you, a$$holes!" Tossing it at the squad, he looks away and covers his ears as it goes off, blinding and deafening all those inside. Not even bothering to check, Yankee reaches in and pulls out Bravo and Juliet,  swiping a carbine for later. Dragging them to the conference room's entrance, he drops them to the floor and makes his way back to the roof with his new weapon in hoof, "Once again I'm stuck killing everyone while you two slack off..."

"Flash get down!" Lauren shouted as they shut their eyes but it was bit late causing the team that was already disoriented from the crash to get even worse. Lauren and Connor both recovered though and quickly went to work.
"We lost both target's right now. I got 4 badly wounded, two pilots, Bear, and Walt. Connor and I are gonna stabilize by the crash site to help out the injured but we need an evac. Bring a Pavelow. I fear we need more than a hawk in case Yankee comes after us again."
There was a response from the radio and Lauren nodded to Connor as both carefully pulled Morgan and Walt out to put them in a bit of a better position before returning into the chopper to find both pilots bloody but unconscious. Both SEALs sighed in relief but the challenge was now to pull them out of their seats as both side doors were jammed shut. Connor picked up his M249 SAW.
"I'll be outside in case Yankee decides to return. You work on getting those two out of there." Connor said stepping out of the crashed bird and kept his eyes peeled around.

Broadshield's expression goes from satisfaction to horror, from landing several hits on Yankee, to him rolling back, exposing Foxtrot, who is hit twice. He releases the trigger, the remaining bullets whizzing past Foxtrot. "F***! Fox!" He cries out in shot, rushing to his side, before carrying him to the staircase he went up to get to the rooftop. After making his way there, he sees that Fox has been severely injured, but not fatally, thank Celestia. "This is Command actual to Manehatten air fleet, I need a helicopter medvac!
We got an injured soldier, and he needs medical attention, how copy?" He says into his headset before a voice responds. "This is Home Base to Command actual. The closest aircraft we have is the Little Bird, ETA 10 minutes."
"Roger that, bring it over, and hurry up!" He says, before turning his headset off. "Tinder! I need you to guard Fox, I'll take care of Yankee! He calls out to her over the howling wind. Reloading his weapons, he takes aim at the hole in the ground, waiting for Yankee to pop his head back up so he can open fire.

Tinder stares at Fox as she watches all of this happening, she seems to hesitate for a second before nodding and following Broadshields orders. She grits her teeth as she stands and grabs the wrap Fox had with her magic, quickly making her way over to him and applying it on his more prominent wounds. She sticks close to him as her weapons form around her, "Stay with me Fox." Tinder is doing fairly well at ignoring her own wound, since the outside layer of the bag is still intact it's covering it from anyone seeing it. The only way someone would notice is if they saw the blood starting to drip from her side.

"Ugh, damn it. Now I gotta climb all these steps." Yankee mumbles to himself; since his magic's depletion, the Director has had to rely on physical and mental prowess and conditioning. Holding the carbine in hoof, he's slightly surprised at the results of the Initiative; being a subject to the program itself has yielded generous benefits. Now relying on gut instinct and speed of movement, Yankee presses forward to extinguish the resistance towards his goals. His thoughts flash over to the others, Bravo and Juliet still in the conference room, 'I can get them out, but not with them around. F*ck that, the years we've put into this, the sheer scope of the possibilities.' The Director reaches the exit to the roof, slowing his speed to a crawl as he brings the carbine to bear; peeking down the sights, he first finds Broadshield. Instead of firing, he moves closer to the exit, not making a sound as he scans the rest of the roof. His amber eyes sighting Tinder and Foxtrot much closer, as well as his machete; a moment of silence passes as he visualizes his strategy. 'I won't let them stop our only chance. Regardless of the outcome, the project will continue.' Taking a deep breath, the unicorn sprints into action; once he reaches the roof, he beelines straight to Foxtrot and Tinder as his firearm is centered on the pegasi. He fires a round towards Broadshield's shoulder in an attempt to free his grip from his firearm; as the sound of gunfire reaches their ears, he drops the carbine and slings over his crossbow. The bolt is sent speeding towards the Equinox soldier's left hindleg, should the bullet some how miss, there was a backup. As soon as both projectiles are fired, Yankee skids to a stop right in front of the the two unicorns. He swings the butt of his crossbow right into Tinder's center, barely missing her injury by several inches/centimeters; wasting no time, his focus is simply to waste the rogue agent.

Before Fox can react to what he saw, his vision blurs as Yankee's hoof collides with his face, blood pouring out of his nose as the agent lifts his own hooves to protect himself. With one hoof holding off the Director's strikes, the other reaches into his pocket, pulling out one of his three remaining hoofcuffs. Lowering his defenses, Foxtrot takes a kick to his chest; the surge of pain rattles his mind as his wounds slightly open again. Using the moment to his advantage, Foxtrot suppresses the pain in his head and swings his hoof up; one of Yankee's hind hoofs light up a greenish glow. Surprised, Yankee steps away and picks up the machete nearby; the Director looks over to his shoulder to spot his former colleague trying to get up. Rushing back, Yankee pulls back his front hoof and lands a punch on the unicorn, sending him back to the floor. Going for the kill, a grin appears on the forest green unicorn's face through the reflection of the machete's steel as it plummets down towards the agent. Foxtrot raises both of his hoofs to block the attack, but his weakened physical state simply slows the piercing metal as it inches closer to it's target. Breathing heavy, Foxtrot looks down to find the other cuff sitting next to Yankee's other hoof, "Tind- Tinder! Hoof! H-" He gasps as the machete lightly presses against his armor. Clenching his teeth, Foxtrot pushes back, stalling for as much time as he can."

Tinder looks up as she hears the shot ring out, not having time to react before she's his with the crossbow. Though it was right next to her injury, she seemed fairly unfazed by the hit, sure it'll hurt later but right now she can't feel much of anything. She grabs her weapons up, but turns back to see Fox and Yankee fighting. She quickly realizes what Fox is telling her to do and grabs the cuffs from the floor with her magic, running at Yankee to push him off of Fox. Her plan is to try to hold him down and put the cuffs on him, but her main concern is just getting him off of Foxtrot. Plus, she's still a bit mad about the whole destroying her things, so her attack is fueled by anger as well.

Lauren manages to cut the pilots out and places them on the ground besides Morgan and Walt.

"What's that status on that pavelow?" Connor asks still on alert.

"We are pulling up by the big hole on the roof of the building." The radio responds as Connor looked up to see the massive helicopter overhead. The back ramp was open crew members pointed to the SEAL team.

"Do another circle around the building as we get the injured to the top!" Connor shouted before slinging his lmg and carefully picked Walt up and pulled him up towards the roof.
