“I have a report on the defense system boards that were damaged. Someone placed hard code on them so that some IFF’s would not trigger a response from the automated weapons platforms. I have people looking into who supplied these boards and what other defense systems are using them. I have also ordered that all of our other main frames have the boards replaced with off world ones. We have a good supply from the stock that the Guard drought with them.”
“Good. Keep me informed on this.”
‘Hai!”





 “You did see to it that they were paid?” Meiyo asks.
“Hai Aijin.” The older gentleman responds. “The funds were sent to the account they gave us. They were well compensated for the find per your instructions.”
“Do they have any idea what it was?”
“Ie Aijin. They only had a limited scan of the area. When our survey team looked into the spot they found the item.”
“Very good.” Meiyo looking over the images. “She will be most helpful when she in in service. Let the repair crews know this is a black project and she gets priority.”
“Hai Aijin.”





“Sir our survey team has returned from the area that the prospectors informed us of and the area did not have any ore deposits.”
“Well what did they find?” Kolya Lavrenti asks.
“They found an old Liberty Class JumpShip.”
Sitting up at his desk. “Is she serviceable?”
“The team is looking her over sir. But for the early reports she is.”
“Please keep me informed.” Kolya with a big smile on his face. “It looks like we just might make corporate very happy and for a few hundred thousand C-Bills at that.”
“How is that sir?”
“Well if she is space worthy they will not need to keep sending out transport for us, we would have our own. Shipping costs are going up as things get hotter and most of the major companies are not making runs this far out as they have all they can handle due to what is going on.”
“I see sir. What about any repairs and licensing?”
“I think that we will be able to do that here. The local repair center can see to both. That and the cost would be much less than getting a ship just for out here.”
“Very good sir.”
“Do make sure that the couple is paid for the find and if they need repairs on their ship let them know we will help them cover the costs. Also let them know that if the find any other readings like that we will be very happy to work with them in the future.”
“Yes sir. Am I telling them anything about the find?”
“Let them know that it was not a mineral find, it was salvage.”
“Very good sir.”

OOC:
Going to be working on a write up from my unit's perspective and sticking it in my github (with some here and a link to it) but have some questions.

What was the in-game date of the mission today?

We are in June of 3069. 2-3 weeks in. I only use set dates for somethings not missions so much as that would make things way to hard.

Quote
What was the Name/Rank of the commander?

Bully Roads commander of Road’s Warriors.

He is also the logistics officer for the GSF. Husband to Kaih Franks Commander of Kaih’s Hammers … she is the overall commander of the GSF …. She did not step back when the others did.  :evil:  :lipsrsealed:

Rank well what day is it.  :evil: Major / Sho-sa to the locals.


Quote
What was the name/rank of the person/unit that spotted the ambusher?

The MechWarrior in the Griffin from Roads Warriors. Name that will need to come from the Obnoxious Twerp.

Same for the APC and Infantry.

Quote
Any details anyone wants to provide above that, I will be happy to fit in, any photos also.

I might might get a something after I switch out my PC toys

Quote
Honestly, I was so fixated on minimizing my own mistakes in process/numbers I knew I wouldn't be able to keep track of other things. Some of my strategic mistakes I will include in the write up, so if you have good/bad things, feel free to send em my way.

All good, you did fine.

Quote
August 11th is the second weekend of August, I am available that day.

Look forward to seeing you then.

As the four ‘Mechs search the area the Hitman and Raven will pick up heavy EM readings from that direction of the Vasilievna main complex.
“Are you getting the same readings from your beagle that I am getting?” MechWarrior Schmitt asks Lieutenant Yang.
“If you’re talking about some crazy heavy EM from the Vasilievna complex sure.”
“Have you seen anything like this before?”
“Sure when I’m back at base and the other units have a lot of the gear on line.”
“Me too, but they should not have that much equipment?” Schmitt asks.
“Well we can make a sweep of the area to see what other readings we get.”
“I don’t know about that.” Lieutenant Zhou interjects. “Our orders are to keep a low-profile. Getting closer will not work, Chao you and I are the only ones with stealth armor and I’m sure they have other sensors that we will need to worry about.”
“How about we back off and let command in on the readings. I sure they will get some other recon in the area.” Loni offers.
“Sounds good to me.” Chao
“OK then we put some space between us and them. Then we make the call.” Meifeng adds.
“I’ll take point. With my armor and lasers I should be able to deal with most threats we my run into.” Roger Frey will kick in.





“Now that the other commands know about Narvik are we going to open it for them?”
“I do not know. We have our hands and facilities full repairing the field salvage so we can put in to use later on. The support from the governor has helped with costs but we will need to get more people if we are to open it for general services.”
“So then the techs will make House Calls only for now.”
“Only for fellow GSF units and if the DCMS if they ask. That is the best we can offer for now.”
“What about the other ‘Mech forces on world? We have equipment that they do not.”
“We will need to see just who they are working for. It would be bad form if we repaired units not working for the good of Nejiro after all.”

Honestly, relative dates works fine, even just the month would work. It's more that the HGP have dates on them so wanted to know how things fit together.

Quote

No rush. I can add more as people provide some details.

Quote
All good, you did fine.

Next time I should be "better" prepared. Now when reading the rules it makes a bit more sense with certain things. But then I'll be possibly using completely different units so can make the same mistakes in new ways.

OOC:
The only damage I had was the fused turret and 15 armor, so unless I need help with that Ulam (Chief Tech) gets to give Kem (XO) a hard time about it. But I'll be looking to find out the process for that (if a particular book has the info, just point).

“Welcome to Deccan Hanto Captain Markov, how is you trip going?”
“Slow but sure. My crew and I cannot wait to get to Constantine.”
“The Konstantinovich Ichizoku, are some of the best with watercraft on the planet. I am sure they will fix what is wrong with your craft.”
“So far that is what all the others have told us from when we started this trek.”
“Well you and your crew are welcome to spend a couple of days here to rest your craft before you make the final leg of your journey.”
“Thank you. All of these stops are making the trip much longer than needed.”






“Sir, sensors just picked up movement a couple of kilometers outside of out boundaries.”
“Any idea of what it is?”
“Something large, some type of combat vehicles from the EM sig we are getting.”
“Get a patrol in the area to find out just what it is.”
“Hai sir!”





“Looks like we tripped something, I got two (2) fast movers coming up on our six.”
“Time to move fast.”
“How about the mountains to the north-west? They have woods too.”
“That should work.”
“Sure as long as they are just ground vehicles.”
“Crank up the E-noise just to help.”
“On it.”





“Sir the recon reports that they could not find the target. They never made contact but they know they were tracking a group of light ‘Mechs from the tracks they found on the both sides of Tone-gawa. They report that the ‘Mechs were heading in to the mountains between Fortress Zakharovich and Camp Kurawa. With how heavy the woods are in that area the recon could not follow. Our recon also reported that the bandits are running some heavy ECM as well.”
“Great we have bandits with new gear poking around our complex. Inform all units that they are on alert.”
“Sir, All units?”
“All militia units.” With a smile on his face. “Inform the planetary militia and the GSF of our findings. We have bandits in the area let them do the hard work.”
“Hai sir.”





“GSF command to all GSF units, we have a report of raiders in the area of Zakharovich Fortress and Camp Kurawa. All commands will dispatch units to deal with these raiders.” Tekeda will look at Gulia. “Note that these bandits are running heavy ECM from the scout teams report. Last off Zakharovich’s Kylfings will provide support units for this mission as well.”
“Do you think it wise for Zakharovich units to be away from the fortress if other raiders are in the area?” She asks.
“About time the militias do something don’t you think?”
“Hai.” She answers.

The Hands of the Goddess will keep the Firestarter and Karnov in the field.  The two other units will be replaced by the Hussar and Gladius.

hey Gang -

“Herr I have Dame Hammond on the line for you.” Duke’s valet informs him as he brings a phone in to the study.
“Danke Willham.” Duke takes the phone. “To what do I owe the honor of this call Frau Hammond?”
“Just letting you know that I’m on world and looking to see if we could get together.”
“I think I can make some time to see you. Do you have any place you would like to go?”
“I would like to go to Orla Eyrie. Every time I have tried to get in they are booked solid.”
“I may know someone that could get us in. I will make a call and see what can happen.”
“That would be great. I also have some information for you when we get together. It is not something I want to talk about over an open line.”
“Very well I will get back to you as soon as I get us a table at Orla Eyrie.”


“Willham will you get Major Cranson on the line for me Bitte.”
“Ja, Sir, sofort.”



“Major I have “Duke” Bosche calling for you.”
“Send the call to my office, I’ll take it in there.”


Crash goes into his office and closes the door: he picks up the phone. “Duke what can I do for you? I hope this is not an alert.”
“Nein …. No this is more of a social call. I would like to know if you could arrange a table for a friend and myself at your restaurant.”
“Do you want a private room or just a table?”
“A table is fine. She has been looking to try the food but has not been able to get in.”
“Lucky of me the place has been doing well. The staff has done well keeping the people very happy with the menu.” Crash thinks for a second. “If you want I will make sure that a table with a view of Yousai is ready for you and your lady. Just let me know what day and time you would like.”
“That is much more then I can ask, you have others that have made reservations for such a table. I could not ….”
“Please we are GSF I would do the same for any fellow member.”
“I will call her and let you know the time. Danke …. Thank You.” Duke thinks for a second. “You may want to stop by yourself as my dinner partner is Annette Hammond. You both may prophet for the meal.”
“I just may be on hand then.”





“Grubby get in my office ASAP!” Crash yells over the PA.


A short time later “What’s up Boss?”
“What can you tell me about Annette Hammond?”
“Well she owns AH Traders ….. you know the outfit I got the Crab from.”
“I knew the name sounded familiar.” Looking at Grubby. “Looks like Duke just may have set us up real nice.”





“Anne I got your Lyran Hun on the line.”
“Send it to my office. He is not my Lyran Hun.” Under her breath. “Not yet anyway.” She gets to her office. “Send in the call.” She picks up the reciver. “Well that was fast.”
“When one is motivated one will get things done fast. So when would you like to go to Orla Eyrie?”
“What … you are kidding …. right?”
“No I am not, tell me when you want to go and we will have a table.” Duke thinks for a second. “With a view from what I am told.”
“WOW! How?”
“Let’s just say an old army buddy.”
“OK how about Sunday late lunch, say 2ish?”
“I will set it up for 2:30 to give you some extra time.” Looking at his date book and marking it down. “My buddy may want to talk shop with you after we eat. He may want to see what you have in stock.”
“You know how to get a lady to look forward to lunch. Not only do you take her to one of the hottest places on planet you help her out with sales also.”
“Well if things go well we may have to find dinner as well.”
“A girl can only hope.”





“Crash Duke just called back and he is asking if 2:30 works?”
“You tell him no problem. Then tell the crew at Orla that he and his date are going to be there and to make sure they get V.I.P. treatment.”
“Good to go boss.”
“OH if Miss Hammond ever looks to have dinner at Orla from this point on she has a table. Understood?”
“Yes!”


pretty much how I would have handled it  :smilie_happy_thumbup:

Crash will make a point to be available at the restaurant that day to say hello and possibly talk buisness if the lady is willing to do so (starting with half an owens worth of replacement parts...  or a whole owens if that is easier)

For the next mission will swap out the Hunter for the Hawk Moth (the bird has a LEEEEETLE bit too much air conditioning right now...) and Owens for Eagle (want the BAP); if I cannot reload the current Schiltron, will switch Schiltrons.  Crash in the Wolvie will stick with it unless the gang feels I should bring something heavier like the Orion or Albatross

-C

P.S. - is Duke Ogre's commander?  Can't remember.

P.P.S. - just realized that I never got to play out to the interaction with the training commander from the roleplaying day a few months ago...  Is it still possible to do so, or has that ship sailed?

P.P.P.S - (promise this is the LAST postscript for today... ;p)  Is it possible to get clan pulse weapons to swap out in the wolvie?  getting SOOOoo tired of always being out of range...

“Well you and your crew are welcome to spend a couple of days here to rest your craft before you make the final leg of your journey.”
“Thank you. All of these stops are making the trip much longer than needed.”

Pavel calls a meeting in the watch room of the ship.  Assembled there were Julia, Freyja, Jonah and his team.

"We'll be landing at Constantine Island soon."  He told everyone.  "Ms. Raids, Ms. Jeff, Colonel Greyjoy has placed you in charge of the infiltration mission.  We appreciate all you've done to train us en route to our destination.  Just tell us what you'd like us to do once we arrive and we'll do it."

Sophia stands at the center of the room.  Looking at Freyja and Julia, she says. "As Captain Markov has stated, we've given the three of you a crash course in espionage and infiltration.  Now it's time to put that training to the test."  Gathering everyone closer, she added.  "Now then, here's what everyone's assignment will be..."

OOG: Anthony and Dawn, I'll leave what Sophia says next to you two.

Once out of range, Meifeng will signal Camp Haken.

"Colonel, this is Night Witch.  We've completed our sweep of the Vasilievna complex.  The Koichizoku are running massive amounts of ECM interference from their base, far more than they should have access to.  We'll need additional assets to fully scout the area.  We need to see what's going on and what machines the Vasilievna are running to produce all this interference.  Night Witch out."

"Now we wait."  Meifeng told the others.

“Great, just what we need more trouble.”
“The big thing is I can’t get command on line. The mountains and ECM are blocking everything.”
“I was hoping you were not going to say that. I have been trying for about half hour.”
“I just hope someone picks up on we have not reported and are overdue.”
“we just might want to add to all the noise. Just so whoever is messing around does not find us so quick.”

So I still have to sit down and read what others have posted and figuring things out a bit. BUT, BUT. I have done some things.

I have a to do list of things I want to do. In addition, I have added 'after mission X' to each thing in the list so we know when it was added/when it started to be needed to be done.

After Action Party Discussion. This is the fun part. Not a whole heck of a lot but I'll sum up

- The XO is the one that got shot in the schiltron.
- Brant Crowley is the leader of the TAG Platoon that took out the tank. He gets a callsign & name.

If any of y'all wish to add anything to the conversation or general notes, let me know.

"Chao, engage Stealth Armor.  Loni, Roger, engage your ECMs.  We'll keep in touch using our 'Mechs LED running lights.  Mark this point.  This is our rendezvous point.  Spread out, find the ECM sources, mark them and return here in one hour.  I'm taking responsibility.  When we meet back up, we'll go and hit a few of them.  Loni, you're with me.  Roger, go with Chao.  Night Witch, going dark."

Meifeng activated her Stealth Armor.  She then started sifting through her war-book and notes, looking for what known units their many enemies possessed that could lay down an ECM field this heavy.  Turning Night Witch east, she ran the Anubis away from the rendezvous point as the makeshift lance broke up into pairs, heading in opposite directions.

just a question for you on the Schiltron .... you fired off 8 rounds .... just under 2 tons .... why the sqap? this thing has 8 tons .... 40 rounds of missiles. you have just over 6 tons ... 32 rounds in the mags  :evil:

yes the Alpha can use the credit for a mission.

if you want fire power go with the Albatross. same speed as the Orion, better armor, much more fire power at range and as it gets close much more hitting power. also both can use the mission credit.

last offer is when the mission starts you have you BA swap rides if you bring the Alpha Owens. This way you BA from the Schiltron can get to use the AIT bit and the other guys can play body guard.  :angel:

Agent Dalca and Sergeant Jett look over all in the room. “To start when you get to Constantine just stay cool. Look around but like someone on the island for the first time. They have a lot of fun things to do. Do them.” Sophia will start. “They will have people watching all of you so let them watch. Work when you should have fun when you can. But keep your eyes and ears open and mouth shut.” She smiles at the group. “Sergeant what do you have to offer?”
Mara will look around. “First off no weapons …. what most will think of as weapons that is. We have given you items that you can use to defend yourself but do not look like a weapon, use them only if you have too.” She will pick up a pad. “We know that these areas.” Pointing out places on the map. “Are off limits so do not go into them. If any of you think or spot something that is in these areas WE will look into them. We do not need any of you getting into trouble for going into these areas and getting kicked off the island … it is a long swim back.” She smiles.  “Last off you will have very limited contact with us as we will be looking around also. We will have to stay out of sight as some here may know of us, problem of being local. We will setup contact times and points during our time on the island.” Looking back at Sophia. “Follow what Sophia said and we all get to go home with no problems.”

“Recovery teams standby for transport. You have four vehicles down and one in need of minor repair plus one “Mech in need of repairs. You will also find one ‘Mech and one vehicle that are salvage.”
“Transports will be ready to move units in the field to a new location and bring fresh units to the same location.”





“Major the techs have finished the check out of the Demon Tank that Ratchet returned and she is 100%.”
“That is good news. I guess I will need to see about getting a crew for it.”
“We will have to work with the crew for a bit due to the fusion engine. Most on world do not work with these engines.”
“That is good as we will teach them our ways.” Alannah will look over the report. “I see it will needs a crew of three. I will get to work on this ASAP.”

hey Gang -

pretty much how I would have handled it  :smilie_happy_thumbup:

Crash will make a point to be available at the restaurant that day to say hello and possibly talk buisness if the lady is willing to do so (starting with half an owens worth of replacement parts...  or a whole owens if that is easier)

For the next mission will swap out the Hunter for the Hawk Moth (the bird has a LEEEEETLE bit too much air conditioning right now...) and Owens for Eagle (want the BAP); if I cannot reload the current Schiltron, will switch Schiltrons.  Crash in the Wolvie will stick with it unless the gang feels I should bring something heavier like the Orion or Albatross

-C

P.S. - is Duke Ogre's commander?  Can't remember.

P.P.S. - just realized that I never got to play out to the interaction with the training commander from the roleplaying day a few months ago...  Is it still possible to do so, or has that ship sailed?

P.P.P.S - (promise this is the LAST postscript for today... ;p)  Is it possible to get clan pulse weapons to swap out in the wolvie?  getting SOOOoo tired of always being out of range...

"Crash, Grat zeea(phonetic for correct pronunciation) for getting us a table anywhere here on such short notice."

"Milady, I was hoping we could have a chance to talk when you returned, but too be honest I thought you would take more time to deal with more pressing and urgent business matters before calling me. I am surprised, that is all."
"So here it is, I have thoroughly enjoyed all the times we have spent together and would like to continue doing so on a more regular basis. No I am not asking you to quit what you so obviously enjoy doing, and honestly when I have had a chance I love watching you make your buyers dance to your "tunes", so in order to make our relationship at least possible, I am going to hand of the command of the Loyalty Forsaken to Himiko, she already knows this will happen and is already learning as much as she can and the senior officers and NCOs are helping as well. Nominally I will be at it's command, pushing paperwork, while she gets more familiar working with the other GSF units and friendly units on planet and acquiring more field and command time. I am doing this for multiple reasons, first and foremost I wish to spend more time with you, second I am getting too old for this "shit".



So currently for the game on 11 Aug 2024 my plan is to field
Von Rohrs
Yellow Jacket
Badger "Dog pound" with it's accompanying BA( 1 sqd of I.S. BA, and x2 sqd of Rottweiler BA
and either a griffin 1N or Ajax B(omni tank)

Windage and elevation Mrs. Langdon. Windage and elevation."

"It feels...different somehow."

Fuka guided the Black Knight through the 'Mech-sized slalom set up ahead of the practice range.  Her new 'Mech responded seamlessly to the brainwaves she sent through the neuro-helmet.

"That's because you're running upright instead of being hunched over on chicken legs."  Said Harald over the comms.  "It runs the way a human runs, so it should feel more natural."

"It does."  Fuka remarked as she passed the next checkpoint.  "It kind of makes me want to try to make her dance."

"Don't you dare."  Harald warned.  "We spent a lot of money and TLC to get that thing up and running.  I don't want to have to take her back to the repair bay because you wanted to play around."

"Don't worry.  I won't."  Fuka responded.

Upon reaching the firing range, Fuka surveyed the familiar targets.  "Time to test your new long-range firepower."  Harald said.  Fuka toggled the 'Mech's ER PPC.  She was used to the large pulse lasers from Crow's Eye, but this was the first time she actually had a weapon that could hit a target at long range and not just short.  Squeezing the trigger, she saw the blue beam of charged particles strike the target from kilometers away.  The hit was off-center, but seeing the hole burn its way into the target still gave her pause.

"Sugoi."  She muttered to herself.  She thought about how far she'd come since first joining the Ironborn.  Now, she had her own 'Mech.  She was going to be part of the Hilo City Defense Force (whenever the Colonel was ready to unveil them).  If only her family could see her now.

"Next target, Fuka.  If you please."  Harald's voice bringing her back to reality.

"Hai, Hoare-sama."  She said, bringing her reticle on to the next target.
