After flinging the door of the Samson's cab open, Hud hit the ground running... Well, Hud hit the ground.
His attempt to tuck and roll was an A+ for effort, but the sheer speed at which the cab was hovering across the sand caused him to bounce to a stop. After traveling an impressive distance like a magical swearing tumbleweed, once he came to rest he groaned and dragged himself upright.
His eyes shot left and right as he looked for the landmark he had spotted when Scooter had practically shoved him from the moving truck. There! An area of scrub next to a small washout with a distinctive pile of rocks... Swatting sand and dust off of his body, he jogged towards the largest dune next to the formation and found the found the loose cairn there that marked the exact spot he was searching for.
Tossing away the piled stones, he kicked and scooped sand away with his hands to get at the metal hatch buried there. They were being chased, and every moment counted. After fifteen seconds or so of grunting and swearing he had cleared away enough space to open the hatch and wriggle his way inside. GWOOON~
The Zaku II's monoeye lit up as a huge, tan hand rose up from beneath the desert floor sending sand flowing and rocks tumbling. The arm was followed by a massive torso and head as the MS sat up from where it had been nearly totally buried in the sand. It began to stand as Hud fiddled with the controls, slapping at a monitor that didn't immediately turn on.
Once it was upright, Hud stomped towards the washout and picked up equipment that had been stashed there - a massive MS-scale gunbelt, a knuckle shield and a 90mm machine gun. With his suit now armed, Brody took a moment to roll and light up a cigarette. Now where had their Samson gotten to? The Zaku II Kai stepped into a sort of wide-legged skating motion and took off across the desert after Scooter, its Dom-like hover jets engaged to give it extra speed.
