Armored Trooper Votoms : Pailsen Files s03e12
Titre original : Monad
Despite being hit, Kochak still fights on and his Scopedog is totally destroyed. His death reminds the team of their mortality as Wockam begins to bask in the success of his plan. Balarant Fattys continue to engage them, with Godan's Scopedog wrecked from two bazooka hits. Godan passes away from his wounds in the cockpit after Berkhoff administers painkillers. Tremors are detected all over Monad, and Chirico learns that all Balarant forces have been ordered to leave the planet. Chirico, Zaki and Berkhoff try to find an intact launch catapult while fighting off Balarant troops just as desperate to get out; Berkhoff dies in a suicidal charge to buy time for Chirico and Zaki's escape. As they secure an escape pod, Monad's energy core goes haywire and the entire planet explodes, killing Gilgamesh and Balarant forces in the immediate vicinity. Stunned by the carnage, Gilgamesh Army command orders the Intelligence Department complex sealed off and has Wockam arrested, but he and Ruske escape in time. Aboard the escape pod, Chirico tries to talk to Zaki about ignoring any mental programming to kill him. Zaki asks Chirico to kill the man who brainwashed him before killing himself. At Kuzsuk, Wockam is surprised to see Pailsen in good health and in uniform. The colonel explains that the man who operated the MRC on him was one of his associates, and Wockam fully believed all the fake data in the Pailsen Files disk. As Pailsen leaves, Wockam tries to kill him but Ruske shoots Wockam instead and offers to work for the colonel. Chirico places Zaki's corpse in a body bag before he sedates himself to sleep.
