As the characters drove towards the base in their captured Armored Personnel Carrier (APC), the Zombies swarmed over the vehicle trying to gain entrance. The characters merrily blasted at the undead through the gun ports but several zombies hung on for dear unlife.
Since the characters were busy firing, no one wanted to actually drive the APC and so they relegated the task to the primitive Lionman Gerrowl from Mars. While not the best driver, he is the worst ranged combatant and so the plan seemed reasonable until the APC power skidded through that front gates going 60" per round trying to make a 90 degree turn to avoid a large building.
Surprisingly, Gerrowl made the turn (with some help form Sgt. Parkay and a few bennies). Someone screamed "who's idea was it to have the cat guy drive!" No one responded due to being thrown about the cabin of the APC.
Luckily, there was a column of Nazis conveniently lined up who were plowed over by the careening APC. Flying Nazi bodies knocked the lone zombie from his perch atop the vehicle.
The APC made another turn and so the characters advised the lead-foot Lionman to begin breaking. Fidget, the diminutive Lynxman from Mars yelled "We're not going to stop in time!" and began firing at the enclosure wall with the vehicle's rocket gun hoping to weaken the structure enough for the APC to plow through. The characters were able to open a hole in the wall just wide enough for the armored vehicle. Unfortunatly, it was at this point Gerrowl ran out of bennies and the Nazis opened up with their heavy weapons.
The Nazis 'killed' the APC just as it reached the wall, traveling 20"/turn. The vehicle hit the wall then flipped end over end. Robert 'Raygun' Fulton was thrown free of the vehicle while the others recovered after the vehicle came to rest on the opposite side of the Gate enclosure. By fate or design, the former APC slid through the majority of Nazi mooks defending the enclosure leaving only two heavily armed soldiers and an attractive, female Nazi scientist to battle in our next gaming session.
