It Is Not Easy To Be A Man After Travelling To The Future Chapter 655

Ling Lan and her members’ impressive show of skill caused the passengers on the Feiyang Ship and the other mecha operators to feel motivated. Just as everyone thought that the battle was about to end, seven mechas which looked different from the Federation’s mecha flew out from the flagship. They seemed to be mechas from Caesar…
Currently, there were only two kinds of mechas. One of them was the Federation’s mecha while the other was Caesar’s mecha. The Federation’s mechas were more agile and leaner while Caesar’s mechas focused more on strength. Hence, they were bulkier. It was easy to differentiate them.
Although the different countries invented their own mechas, they were designed based on the mechas of these two countries. Such counterfeit mechas were weaker than the original products from these two countries.
Since this was the case, some countries decided to just buy the mechas from these two countries and not waste their resources to build their own mechas. The mechas that were sold were normally the older models but it was still stronger than those that were invented by other countries.
Of course, this was not the main point. The mechas that the intergalactic pirates used were low-quality mechas. Some were bought from Caesar. These intergalactic pirates roamed the galaxy and had no powerful backgrounds supporting them. Hence, it was not easy for them to get high-quality mechas.
However, the seven new mechas were striking because they were ace mechas from Caesar.
Normal commoners were not familiar with the mechas from other countries but the crew inside the Feiyang Ship were from the military. Hence, they knew everything about the mecha from their greatest rival, Caesar. They immediately recognized the mechas as the newest model that Caesar created. It was the main mecha of Caesar’s military, their ace mecha.
These mechas were forbidden to be traded overseas. If intergalactic pirates managed to secretly obtain one, it was already a miracle. If seven of them appeared at the same time… wait, one of them seemed to be higher quality compared to the rest. It might an undisclosed mecha model from Caesar.
It was impossible for intergalactic pirates to get so many ace mechas. Either they were collaborating with Caesar or they were backed by Caesar.
Just as everyone was shocked by the seven mechas, 15 other mechas flew out of the flagship. These 15 mechas were all different but they still looked imposing. Five of them were ace mechas. It looked like a mecha from the Federation but slightly altered. It must be a newly invented mecha based on the Federation’s mecha. The other 10 mechas were not ace mechas but there were also special class mechas that have been modified.
The opponent suddenly had 12 more mechas on their side. This was one more than on the side of Feiyang. The situation turned for the worse.
There were three different groups. The seven ace mechas were a group and they flew towards Ling Lan and her comrades. Three ace mechas rushed towards one of the vanguard ships. The other group of two ace mechas charged towards the other vanguard ship. There wanted to stop the three ace mechas who were attempting to stop the vanguard ships.
“This is bad. Looks like we need to kill the five ace mechas first.” The crew on the Feiyang Ship turned pale when they saw seven ace mechas attacking their five ace mechas.
“Ah, it is L6-W1. I wonder if they are able to resist against the seven mechas.” Little Qing clenched her fist worriedly as she watched the battle.
Ling Lan looked at the seven mechas which were rushing towards them and smiled coldly. Did they think that they were easy to bully?
Little Four suddenly shouted excitedly. “Boss, that mecha is the newest model from Caesar. We must snatch it.” Little Four showed Ling Lan the images of one of the mecha.
If boss snatched this mecha and gave it to her father, she would be able to receive many military merits. Little Four’s eyes lit up. He could almost imagine his boss rising up in ranks, from Senior Captain to Major.
Little Four was dissatisfied with the rank of his boss. How could his boss have a lower rank than the captains of the other battle teams? She should at least be a Major.
Ling Lan smiled. If Little Four was interested in the mecha, it must be a good mecha. She decided to take the mecha herself.
“L6-W2, L6-W3, L6-W5. Form a team and attack them straight on.” Ling Lan immediately asked Zhao Jun, Qi Long, and Li Yingjie to form a close combat team.
“L6-W4 and L6-W6, follow me.” Ling Lan brought Li Lanfeng and Lin Zhong-qing and entered the match from the side. This entire place was their battlefield. If they went into the blindspot of their opponent’s mecha, they would be unable to spot them.
Because of the ongoing battles, the entire area was filled with heat. The radar and heat detector on the mecha couldn’t work under these conditions. Ling Lan’s objective was clear. She wanted to capture the mecha that Little Four was interested in.
The young man with golden hair was intending to attack Ling Lan and her friends. When he saw three ace close combat mechas rushing towards them, he gave a sinister smile. “I didn’t expect you all to look for death yourself. Lieutenant Colonel Pu La, bring your men and surround them.”
“Yes, Your Highness.” Pu La brought his five of his men and charged towards the three mechas. Their opponents didn’t group together. This was something he wished to see. If he could use this opportunity and destroy the three mechas, the two ace mechas left would not pose any threat. He would have a good time playing with them.
The three mechas on Ling Lan’s side were all close combat mechas. When six of their opponents rushed at them, they didn’t dodge and even increased their speed.
Did they think that they were able to defeat all six of them? This thought flashed passed Pu La’s mind. However, this was a good opportunity for them. Pu La didn’t want to give up.
“Long-range attacks. Get ready!” There were three long-range mechas, two close combat mechas, and one balanced mecha on Pu La’s side. Since they had long-range mechas, Pu La decided to make use of them. They didn’t want to initiate an unnecessary close combat fight with the mechas either.
The moment they entered the range for the long-range attacks, four mechas from Pu La’s side started shooting immediately.
Four light beams flashed through the sky. Everyone on the Feiyang Ship and the flagship of the intergalactic pirates staring at them. They wanted to know the outcome of this match.
Everyone thought that even if the long-range attacks didn’t hit the other party, it would still slow them down. However, they were stunned when the three mechas shown no signs of slowing down. They chose to dodge the beams and then increased their speed as they charged forward.
Following that, a few more beams shot at them. The mechas managed to evade all of them again. One of the mechas dodged the first beam but had difficulty evading the second one. However, when the beam was about to hit it, the mecha moved with a weird set of movements and the beam only scratched the surface of the mecha. A burnt mark was left.
“Was that Irregular Flicker?” The Irregular Flicker was a skill that all ace operators had to learn. Did that ace operator use this skill to dodge the second beam just now? Everyone was asking about the same thing.
Pu La was puzzled. Could Irregular Flicker be used like that?
Although the Irregular Flicker was a skill that all ace operators had to master, it was unable to let a mecha evade such a close attack. If it was him, he would choose to slow down and maneuver his mecha away.
However, if he had slowed down, their opponents would continue firing at them and he would be unable to dodge the next round of attack.
He didn’t expect the other party to be so bold and increase their speed to evade that attack. It should be known that if there was a slight mistake in their controls, the beam would have hit the mecha and the mecha and its operator would have died.
Unfortunately, luck was on their opponent’s side. That mecha managed to dodge the two beams. Pu La didn’t know how the ace operator did it so he just thought that his opponent just got lucky.
“Impressive, Qi Long.” Zhao Jun shouted happily when he saw Qi Long evading the attack. He thought that Qi Long would be hit.
“Amazing. This is the kind of battle that I want.” Qi Long was filled with anticipation. Zhao Jun was speechless. How oblivious can this person get? Didn’t he know that he might have died just now?
Just as Li Yingjie felt proud of his dodging skills, he saw Qi Long’s movement. Li Yingjie’s heart dropped. His face turned pale and he muttered to himself, “He is a lunatic. He must be a lunatic. He is definitely a lunatic…”
Li Yingjie’s control slowed down due to his fear and he got left behind by Qi Long and Zhao Jun.
“No way. I am an elite of the elites. I can lose to Ling Lan as he is an anomaly. However, I cannot lose to that idiot Qi Long!” Li Yingjie glared to his front angrily and pulled down his engine throttle.
His engine roared and Li Yingjie’s mecha shot out like a cannonball. He immediately caught up with Qi Long and Zhao Jun.
“Prepare to attack again!” Pu La gritted his teeth as he gave his order. Luckily, the two parties were quite far from each other so they had one last chance to use long-range attacks. Most of the time, before the close combat mechas were able to get near the long-range mechas, the long-range mechas would usually have three chances to shoot their opponents. However, this time, Pu La’s opponents were lunatics who charged at them without any regard for their own life. Hence, they only had two chances to shoot at them.
Pu La didn’t want to waste their last chance. Although he was confident that they would not lose in terms of close combat, it would still be advantageous for them to destroy one mecha using a long-range attack. If not, their long-range mechas would be useless.
“Attack!” Since their opponents were nearer this time, the two close combat mechas took out their beam guns too. Although their guns were not as powerful as the long-range mechas’ guns, it could still confuse their opponent’s judgment.
Six beams shot towards the three ace mechas. Two of the beams were not as powerful and could at most serve as a disturbance but it was difficult to differentiate between the beams.
“Qi Long, I will not lose to you.” When he saw the two beams in front of him, Li Yingjie shouted suddenly and pulled down his throttle. His speed reached the maximum.
To everyone who was watching, Li Yingjie seemed to be giving up his life heroically.
Just as everyone thought that Li Yingjie was going to die, the two beams and Li Yingjie merged into a white light. No one could see what was happening within the white light.
A black dot suddenly appeared in the white light. The black dot got bigger and everyone finally saw what it was. It was a mecha.
Li Yingjie successfully dodged the two beams but he didn’t escape unscathed. There were two long wounds at the side of his mecha. Smoke was rising from the wound. The wounds missed his cockpit by an inch so he was not in danger.
“Go and die!” Li Yingjie arrived in front of his opponent. He raised his giant sword and slashed it down.
“Boom!” The loud sound woke everyone up from their daze. The mecha that was attacked raised his sword immediately and the two swords clashed with each other.
The mecha that was attacked by Li Yingjie managed to defend itself but it still flew backward for a few hundred meters due to the rebound force of the attack. The mecha operator lost control of his mecha and bumped into the ruins floating around in space.
Two more clashes occurred. Everyone realized that while they were distracted by Li Yingjie, the other two mechas had also evaded the light beams and exchanged a blow with their opponent. Their opponents were also knocked a few hundred meters back.
Just as Pu La was going to order his men to attack together, a thought flashed past his mind. He turned back immediately and shouted towards His Highness who was watching them from the sidelines, “Your Highness, move!”
