Project Point has hit a breaking point. (pun intended)
After successful trials, one of which involved pointing a minigun at the prototype from 1km away and shooting it at full power, the system is to be implemented into a mobile weapon.
The prototype itself is of large enough size, its estimated that it could most likely be mounted onto a OT MBT hull. However, the trailer it is hooked up to isn't such an easy affair. To put it bluntly, it's huge. A very big advanced turbine engine. If you parked 3 semis side by side it would probably be a similar size.
The engineers believe they can decrease the size, armor it up and increase the cables' lengths. However time will tell.
Also the noise from the Project Point prototype was quite the unique one. It was very high pitched. It emitted blue lasers, but for milliseconds.
The OceanTech Project Point is nearing completion. Limited quantity finalized prototypes are tested and fully operational. A trailer is dragged by a OT MBT tank in the rear, and 3 Points are powered by it.
The planes land back on the aircraft carriers, waiting for the King's next move.
Khanate scientists have started a new research project to genetically engineer humans to make them more suitable for combat. They also have tried to make wormholes to call for backup from the Lanist Khaganate, but so far that has been a failure.
When the Khanate become idle in their assault, one of the discs disperse a yellow broad-beam that sweeps over their entire nation. Others of the same type of beam are also projected upon the aircraft carriers and planes. Thought the Khanate are not aware of the beams intention, it is in fact a variety of scan. The scan takes but a few seconds, before all other hostility shown to the Khanate from the disc becomes quiet, at least for now....
Meanwhile, deep underground in the ancient ruined city of the Midg, the clean up of the city continues. A group of midge stumble upon a large cavern, filled with technological pods and devices they can not properly identify. Many of these devices and pods, however, seem to have recently activated. Word of this discovery is brought to the attention of the numerous Jarl's. A study is ordered to find out the function of said technology.
