Talk to Me About: Pentagon Powers
« on: 13 March 2021, 15:05:21 »
Does anyone have a brief rundown of the various factions that sprung up on the Pentagon worlds during the Second Exodus? Notable characteristics, history, or anything else that makes one stand out from the others? Also, any known paint jobs? I found three on CSO, are there any other known schemes?

I think they are only talked about in OPERATION:KLONDIKE and I don't think that many of them had a designated paint scheme other than camouflage of SLDF olive drab

Kojak (I think) has a massive thing for Op Klondike forces. All unofficial but it’s as close as you can get I think

https://www.sarna.net/wiki/Pentagon_Powers is a good starting point.
"We have made of New Avalon a towering funeral pyre and wiped the Davion scourge from the universe.  Tikonov, Chesterton and Andurien are ours once more, and the cheers of the Capellan people nearly drown out the gnashing of our foes' teeth as they throw down their weapons in despair.  Now I am made First Lord of the Star League, and all shall bow down to me and pay homa...oooooo! Shiny thing!" - Maximillian Liao, "My Triumph", audio dictation, 3030.  Unpublished.
