Then Liz pointed out the window and said.
“It’s still sunny, so I might be able to see it.”
“What do you mean?”
“It’s a serpent. Sometimes I see them swimming on the shore. When an aircraft passes by, it hears the sound and sometimes appears above the surface of the water.”
Jeong Dae-shik heard those words and looked out at the sea above the window.
Usually, a large number of ships can be seen on the sea near the land, but there were no ships in the Hawaiian Islands due to the tyranny of the Serpent.
Instead, I saw something gushing through the water near the land.
‘That’s a serpent!’
Serpent, who looked like a mixture of snake and cutlassfish, turned over and slammed onto the surface of the water before falling back into the sea.
It was so large that it could be clearly seen even in the high sky.
Jeong Dae-sik saw the scene and said, unknowingly, in admiration.
“What size did you say he was?”
Liz said, shaking her body as if it was terrible.
“I know it’s at least 200 feet tall.”
200 feet is over 60 meters long.
Thinking that it was truly amazing, Jeong Dae-sik clenched his fists.
Moments later, the plane landed at the airfield located at the Honolulu Defense Base.
As we got off the plane, a man who at first glance thought he was an officer was waiting to meet them with a group of soldiers.
Also standing next to them was a figure believed to be the commander of the Phoenix raid, accompanied by several members.
“Welcome to Hawaii, Mr. All-in-One.”
The officer who came to shake hands with a smile was a whopping four stars.
Jeong Dae-sik straightened his posture and received his handshake.
「It is nice to meet you. The commander directly welcomes me, so I don’t know where to put myself.”
“It is a natural courtesy for the owner to welcome guests who come to my house. I have come a long way for a dangerous mission, so I want you to feel safe while you are here.”
“This is the Phoenix raid team that will clear the monsters with the contingent.”
As expected by Jeong Dae-sik, the man with smooth blond hair was the commander of the Phoenix raid.
He looked quite old, as Liz said.
He looked like he was in his mid-40s, but surprisingly, he might have been older or younger.
He, too, has expressed his gratitude to Jeong Dae-sik by asking for a handshake.
“Thank you for accepting our request and coming this far. My name is Adam Kirkland. Please call me Adam.”
“no. As an ally, I think that’s what we should do. It’s called Jeong Dae-sik.”
“I didn’t know that I would see with my own eyes an all-in-one capable person during my lifetime.”
“I am honored to meet one of the first-generation Awoken who is a hero.”
“You’re a hero, it’s been a while since I heard those words.”
After a brief greeting, Captain Anderson took them home.
Passing by the helicopters lined up at the airfield, Jeong Dae-shik discovered an impressive weapon that surrounded the entire base.
Seeing that he was sticking out his elongated snout into the air, Dae-sik Jeong asked a question to Captain Anderson.
“It looks like that’s the MFP.”
“I don’t think it’s always running.”
“It requires a lot of energy to run all the time. All of the power generation facilities here in Honolulu have been destroyed, and the MFPs are unable to draw enough power. That’s why I always monitor the surroundings, and only use it when a monster approaches.”
“I’d love to see it in action once.”
“Would you like to see it right now?”
“Is it possible?”
“Available. Come this way.”
Captain Anderson took the party to the watchtower where the MFP was installed.
The watchtower sat on top of the pillars of the iron wall surrounding the defensive base, so just looking at it was magnificent.
Soon after, Captain Anderson, who was handed a radio from a soldier, sent instructions to the watchtower.
Soon, the MFP’s ejection vents moved upwards, and a buzzing and loud engine noise was heard.
Before long, the MFP vibrated, and a wave resembling an electromagnetic pulse blasted out toward the ejection port, flashing and bouncing around.
Seeing the scene, Daesik Jeong showed admiration for Captain Anderson, who had a proud expression on his face.
“That’s great. That’s impressive. A weapon that can fight monsters without magic. That’s great.”
“From now on, this device will play an active part in the battle against monsters. If the magic power generation problem is solved, it will be effective for city defense against monster break.”
“Does that mean that the MFP needs power generation to operate at all times?”
“That’s right. Or you need a reactor, and as you know, building a reactor for a monster break is nonsense. Monsters are not greatly affected by radiation, but humans are different.”
When the first monster break occurred, there was a huge loss of life due to the nuclear influence.
The nuclear powers, feeling a sense of crisis, fired nuclear weapons when the first monster they had ever seen threatened mankind.
As a result, it did not inflict a critical hit on the monster.
Nuclear weapons were actually more dangerous to humans.
Several monsters attacked the nuclear power plant, and in the process, the nuclear reactor melted uncommonly.
Japan suffered a major blow from the 1st Monster Break because it failed to defend its nuclear power plant.
In addition, Russia, China, India and the United States suffered heavy damage from the destruction of nuclear power plants.
Korea had the largest number of nuclear reactors in the world, but fortunately, the outstanding awakened quickly defeated the monsters and succeeded in protecting the nuclear power plant with the life-threatening activities of the reserve forces.
However, as long as the monsters existed, mankind could not safely manage the nuclear reactor.
Now that even oil and coal have been exhausted and the dangers of nuclear power have become more prominent, the only hope of mankind is power generation.
That is why the whole world is concentrating on developing magic crystals and extracting magical powers.
And now it was closely related to the problem of fighting monsters.
“You will soon see MFPs put into action. Shall we go then?”
The contingent was guided to a lodging located beneath the defense base.
Jeong Dae-sik could not help but admire the formidable facilities of the defense base.
I know that it hasn’t been long since Honululu was recaptured, but it was surprising that they had already built a base of this size.
「This defense base is designed so that it will not be shaken by any attack of monsters. The entire building is made of a special alloy mixed with Oricalcum.”
“Is it Orichalcum?”
“You can think of it as a kind of mysterious metal Orichalcon. Dungeons on the American mainland tend to have a lot of Orichalcons. It is similar to the amount of mithril in Europe and adamantium in China and Russia.”
“Even so, it wouldn’t have been easy to build a base like this in a short period of time, right?”
“Of course, there was help from talented people. I got a lot of help from the European Union’s Supernatural Powers Federation.”
After traveling for some time on the moving walk, the contingent arrived at their accommodation.
Underneath the defensive base was a residential area for the garrison, and the contingent had to occupy one of them entirely.
「The cafeteria and various amenities are located on each floor, and you can eat at any time. Each room has its own bathroom, so you can use it, and please note that there is also a shared shower room. Supplies necessary for daily life are provided in each room, and the key is here.”
Capt. Anderson, who handed out an access key to each one, told him to call him anytime if he needed anything or had any questions.
And looking at Jeong Dae-sik, he added a word.
“The Phoenix Engineering commander suggested that we have an operation meeting at six o’clock in the evening.”
“all right. Where can I go?”
「You can use the conference room in Building F.」
Captain Anderson left, and Jeong Dae-sik summoned Kim Si-on and asked to attend the 6 o’clock operation meeting.
After that, I unpacked my luggage in the assigned room, took a quick shower, and went to eat with the crew.
The buffet-style meal was quite good, so I ate more than I expected.
After writing Yamafan, Jeong Dae-sik looked at the clock, sweeping his stomach about to explode, thinking that he had somehow developed an appetite for food.
Soon it was six o’clock, and Jeong Dae-sik and Kim Si-on went to the F-building conference room.
The operational meeting was short.
Since Adam, the Phoenix Engineer, had already laid out everything that could be called a plan, Jeong Dae-sik and Kim Si-on were close to hearing an explanation.
He has been here since he first built this defensive base, so he knew the surrounding terrain and the characteristics of monsters as if he were looking at the palm of his hand.
So, the meeting ended with Jeong Dae-sik giving some additional remarks.
As he left the conference room, Adam patted Jeong Dae-shik on the shoulder and said,
“I have high expectations for the performance of the Fenrir unit tomorrow. Let’s have a good time.”
“of course. We will make sure to retake Molokai Island tomorrow.”
Tomorrow’s operation to retake Molokai has only one purpose.
It was to land on Molokai Island and install an MFP in the old center village.
For 24 hours after the installation of the MFP was finished, it was necessary to defend the surroundings and clear the monsters in Mauna Loa and Kamakou.
The contingent was first deployed to Kamakou and played a role in attracting attention.
If the contingent had brought the monsters to Kamakou, the Phoenix Raid, a latecomer, would escort the military base to install the MFP and land at Kaunakakai Port.
If the monsters notice the MFP installation and rush towards it, the Phoenix Raid and Fenrir units will press them from both sides and drive them away.
And when the MFP installation is complete, it was planned to shoot out monster extermination pulses to base the village, and the Phoenix Raid and Fenrir units would attack and wipe out the monsters on the island.
Adam said that while installing the MFP, the resistance of the monsters would be fierce.
The monsters here in the Hawaiian Islands are aware of the existence of the MFP, and have carried out surprise attacks to destroy the MFP at the Honolulu base several times.
However, after many failures, it seems that they have recently given up on Oahu altogether.
All the monsters on Oahu told an unbelievable story that they all migrated to Molokai.
