Not really. ULTRA officially revealed themselves as part of the FWL in early 3092. So our campaign will probably be one of the last, if not THE last that we'll be going up against them.

The 133rd ULTRA Armored is a reinforced company with 4 tank platoons.

The 101st ULTRA RCT is reduced regiment but with two reinforced battalions.  Each Battalion possessing a reinforced mech, armored, and infantry companies.

Cool, thank you.

So reading Vamp's post, if I understand correctly, there is an advanced force of the Black Stars, one of our sub-units perhaps, that is already on world and cooperating with the resistance/militia?

Let me know if that's accurate, and if so, when the rest of us arrive and what ship my Flight will travel on.  Thanks.

Cricket: can you let us know how much cash we were paid, as well as salvage allocation? If you didn't have the time to work them out, I'll pull the transcript and manually count again.

What is the Iron Gauntlet?  A Warship?

Escudero: Kid's last IC post gives a good summary of what's happening on Summer. Essentially, a company of Mechs from the Bloody Marauders and a squad of infantry recon team from the Sharp Shooters had been inserted in for the main Recon Raid contract. The latter linked up with the remnants of Summer's Militia, a single Mech lance, and they are working with local resistance as well. Separately, these two forces have hit ULTRA outposts, depot's and had taken out their sup-capital weapons defence systems.

At the end of the main contract, the rest of the entire Bloody Marauders reinforced battalion jumped in and landed at the LZ prepared by their advanced team.

All ULTRA forces have been identified and tagged at around the capital city, which is the continent where the Marauders are, with a smaller presence with a smaller force on the northern polar continent where the Shooters Recon team is.

The rest of the Black Stars are gathering on Gacrux, a LA system 2 jumps away from Summer. Our plan is to jump in latest by end January 3092. There isn't much we can plan on now without more details on the contract, but I think we should focus our strength and kill off that RCT first. Once the main threat is down,  the two smaller garrison units should be easy pickings.

As for transport for your ASF, you can hitch a ride on the Event Horizon for now.

Thanks Cricket. However, do note that because your salvage tonnage is 55 tons, that MAD-5D isn't allowed unless you buy up salvage tonnage from WarClaw and/or Kid. Sorry, but rules are rules bro. On the other hand, if you DO buy salvage tonnage, you can ask for equipment of higher tonnage than that Wolverine and Spector. So... yeah?

Below is our updated bank accounts.

WarClaw - 155,088,783 c-bills
MariahSyn - 4,755,583 c-bills
Vampire - 188,450,417 c-bills
James Lockheart - 20,679,483 c-bills
Dee Jay Bishop (Aleksei) - 21,276,429 c-bills
Seraph - 87,612,861 c-bills
Cricket - 23,475,343 c-bills
Trythos - 3,651,840 c-bills
Shrike - 8,951,040 c-bills
Escudero - 2,136,960 c-bills
The Kid - 23,007,819 c-bills
Unit Coffers - 1,041,747,408 c-bills
TOTAL BLACK STARS CASH - 1,580,833,966 c-bills

For those entitled to salvage, let me know what you want, or if you intend to buy/sell your tonnage and price please.
As Cricket mentioned, I'll consolidate and email to Tim once I have things sorted out.

So far, I have purchase request from Kid and salvage wish list from Cricket.

Purchases:

Kid:
GLT-8D Guillotine
PTR-6T Penetrator
WHM-7A Warhammer
CTF-4L Cataphract


Salvage Wish List:

Cricket:
Marauder MAD-5D (to be confirmed/changed)
Wolverine WVR-7M
Spector SPR-5F

Erm... this was posted by myself a couple of posts back for those catching up on the contract details..

Quote
Terra, Aug-Sept 3091. All sub-units, including The Risen and Sharp Shooters were refitting and recruiting after Huanghuadian, less the Bloody Marauders. It was early to mid Sept '91 that the Risen detached from the main Collective to head towards New Mars.

Gacrux, from Nov 3091 onwards til present (Jan 3092). Except for a company from the Maruaders and a Recon squad from the Shooters, all participating sub-units were held on Gacrux while the former 2 detachments were sent in to carry recon raid on Summer.

I'll let Cricket have first options. Whatever is left, I'll buy.

By the way, anybody still able to access the Stars' OOC threads? Somehow, I lost all records of who still owes who cash and how much...
Hmm... maybe I shouldn't have mentioned that...  :D

Ok great. Vamps that's 25 tons for you then?

Sorry, I'm still not overly familiar on the depot system. I notice I'm buying a Capellan Mech CTF-4L and a Fed Suns Mech GLT-8D, the 2 others being available in Lyran space per my checking. Would it be unavailable at the Lyran depot or do we not get a discount or is there a transportation charge? How does that work?

Sure, I'll pick up the balance for 2,500,000.

Yeah. Was going through them. Basically, we can't buy these from the Lyan Depot. We'll have to get it from Terra. There WILL be transportation charges for these, and usually insurance to ensure that things don't go missing. However, with our rep discount, it is a very small amount. The others we can simply say that we collect direct from a LA depot.

Whatever it is, the Stars always deal with purchases as an OOC matter. You can chose to RP whatever way you wish on how you got your shiny new toys.

My own salvage would thus be bumped up to 157 tons. Below is my wish list. I will forward the consolidated list to Tim later. In order not to make things messy, I'll email separately our purchase request AFTER we settle the issue of Kid's purchase request.... unless we're going ahead with it regardless of the extra charges?

Allocated tonnage 157 tons. Allowable Wish list 471 tons.
Vampire tank Foxtrot (50 tons)
4 x Vampire tank Prime (200 tons)
4 x Vampire tank Alpha (200 tons)
8 x Nighthawk Mk. XXI PA (L) (16 tons)
2 x Tornado PA (L) (4 tons)
TOTAL 470 tons.

Below is the adjusted bank accounts after sale of Kid's salvage tonnage to Cricket and myself.

BLACK STARS BANK ACCOUNTS AS OF 21/10/2015

WarClaw - 155,088,783 c-bills

Thanks for the explanation. Yes please go ahead with the purchase. I make it to be as follows with my copy of the database:

Penetrator PTR-6T - 7,929,250
Cataphract CTF-4L - 5,998,054
Warhammer WHM-7A - 7,175,134
Guillotine GLT-8D - 7,364,684

Edit: Sorry can I add 2 Foot Rifle Platoons?

Foot Rifle Platoon - 600,000
Foot Rifle Platoon - 600,000

Total: 29,667,122 before discount. After 25% discount, its 22,250,341. I expect my account to have surplus even after charges, if so please transfer the 5,000,000 loan repayment plus any interest due to yourself. Many thanks!

Excellent!  O0

I've checked. Based on LA rep plus currency bonus, we get a 24% discount. Based on our overall rep discount, we can the max 25% discount from Terra. So... there isn't really that much of a difference.


So, this is what we have right now in terms of purchase list. I was thinking we might want to wait until our salvage is awarded so that we can do buying and selling at the same time... but than again, we might be starting our Summer sup-contract soon so we might as get on with things eh? Let me know if there's anything else you want.

Cricket: I need to know which variant(s) of the Armodon you're going for.

From the LA Depot World of :
Penetrator PTR-6T
Warhammer WHM-7A
Foot Rifle Platoon
Foot Rifle Platoon
4x Armodon APCs (Cricket: please specify the variant(s) please)

From Terra, to be shipped to Summer:
Cataphract CTF-4L
Guillotine GLT-8D
Black Star Troop Carrier

From LA Black Market:
Stormcrow G
