Caesars 13th vs. U.S . Division
Perimeter Populous .
Some fiction , what could happen if Julius Caesar's 13 Legion went up against a modern day U. S. division .
Division headquarters , General shmedley here .
Yes sir .
Your explanation of the exorcise , we simulate a battle against Caesars 13 Legion ?
That's right General , the opponents have been given your modern capabilities , and a computer software will run the simulation .
Is this a joke ?
No sir it's not .
Battle starts in a half hour .
This should be fun ?
Alright gentlemen start .
Send in our choppers , check out his layout .
Yes sir .
Choppers report , no sight of the 13th .
Hold it sir , all helicopters are in distress , they've all crashed , some kind of cable bolas weighted at the ends were flung into the rotors .
Drones show Roman soldiers rising from holes in the ground , their shields covered them from sight .
Send in the armed soldiers . And spray those has beens back to Italy .
Yes sir .
Sir ? They're taking injuries from thrown weapons , their bullets can't hit because the Legion has three layer shields , the first thin steel , then thin copper , then leather bound composites .
They've just hacked away our foot soldiers .
Didn't they use grenades ?
Yes sir but the Legionnaires would put a copper dome with spikes on them diffusing the blast .
Or they'd throw them back .
They're at our bunkers front door now sir .
They couldn't possibly get in here can they ?
Let's watch .
The man following the seam of the door with a shim looks like a technician .
That must be Caesar he's showing the direction of the door open ?
They're prying on the door , that won't do it .
Wait , two technicians are looking closer , they're pointing at the wall where the door mechanism is .
Now they're busting away at the concrete .
They could disarm the door but it would take awhile .
They've brought in a bronze tipped log on a swing ram .
They've accessed the hydraulics , the techs are making severing motions to the pipes .
They've broken the pressure lines with large axes .
Alright let's get personal , take out your weapons .
Bullet proof glass separates us .
A spray of darts and arrows bounced off the glass , a heavily armored man approaches the glass and says ,
" Julius Caesar" .
He then gives a a downswing and turns away , his soldiers then set fire to the whole bunker .
