Clan Iron Dolphin Infantry

We use a variety of Infantry forces in our Touman, from the lowly footgrunt to the elite Battle Armor. Each aspect of our clan's Infantry is used.

Clan Anti-Infantry : our " Police " force that help protect our citizens from themselves.
Clan Space Marine : our answer to the spacetrooper!
Clan Heavy Foot Infantry : our best of the best in unaugmented defense.
Clan Heavy Jump Infantry : while this so-called " Bearhunter " is unfamiliar to us, we use a similar weapon called " Krillhunter " among our forces.
Clan Mechanized AA-Infantry : one has to look up once in awhile, quiaff?
Clan Fast Recon : better to know what is over that hill than charge needlessly.
Clan Assault Infantry : when dying is not an option.
Clan Combat Engineer Infantry : Similar to the Capellean forces, our use of them is to build our fortications and other buildings.

Our Battle Armor is still the standard Toad variant with an exclusive Iron Dolphin variant, Crab Battle Armor.

Coral Infantry Armor : Armor Divisor 2 ( TW )
Krill (P)AL Scout / Watch Armor
Crab Battle Armor
Elemental Battle Armor
Fiddler Crab Assault Battle Armor

Continued from above

New Beginnings

After our Exodus from the Homeworlds we set up in a Pocket Nebula located in the Caliban Nebula itself. Within the massive nebula lies our salvation as we try to harness the future. During one of our survey scans earlier in our history, an Odyssey commanded by an ex-Goliath Scorpion Seeker turned Iron Dolphin, Senior Pod Commander Jon Conners discovered the planetoid Holdover. Part of our now escape corridor, it became a base of operations to quickly scout the area. Seeking resources, he discovered a local settlement that traded him a more accurate Star Map of the Nebula for much needed foodstuffs.

As more of our Clan enter this region to help explore, we found remnants of other civilizations, fearing escaped Pentagon Rebel resurgent, we prepared for Operation Klondike II. Seeking to hold unto these new holdings, we didn't pass onto Grand Council of our activities. Finding out that they left the Inner Sphere centuries after the Great Father abandoned it shocked us. What sent ripples in our ranks was the fact they saw us as saviors, not conquerors. With many seeking our hand in friendship, we saw many dezgra acts of unclansmenship. Many negative epithets, backstabbing dealings, counter productiveness and worse, mass slaving of indigenous peoples for profit. We gave them surkairede as we prepared them for isorla.

Operation: Klondike II

Our clan leaders at the time, Khan Sabrina Avery and saKhan Xu Moon, took our forces on an excursion to recon a possible invasion course. Finding many pirates hailing from Emaciated, her units succeeded in taking the planet with minimal loses on our side. Zellbrigen every one to a Trial of Possesion, even when they surfaced nuclears. Many bondcords were given out, few received abtakha even fewer where given hegira that day. Even today, the technicians still are cleaning up the planetoid's taints.

During our initial surveys, we found several planets that where abandoned, apparently due to lack of foodstuffs or medical, in one case the planet's own volcanic tectonic plates erupted, causing a massive fallout that destroyed the biosphere. On Watershed the populace revolted against their overlords and presented us their planet, as we were entering orbit. After falling, word reached Rockface, a planet whose system held massive mineral rights of the rare Germanium ores needed for the construction of Kearny-Fuchida Drives, the backbone of any Jumpship. Upon hearing that Clan Iron Dolphin was looking to trade, Rockface forces tried to trial for our IDS Tigershark, the York-class destroyer-carrier. They failed to honor the bid and for that they forfeited their rights.

SaKhan Moon stood to gain from this momentous occasion, but chose not to. Having to lead by example, he chose to step down and let a much older and wiser Hugh Steiner step up. See Steiner was a bondsman to Xu, and made a contract that he could do a better job in securing Rockface. Xu was furious, but Hugh prevailed until Sabrina stepped in to settle the argument. " Let see what he can do, quiaff? " reportedly stated. Offering the York-class as isorla, Steiner commanded his Binary of Secondline Royal units to fall unto Rockface's combatants. Using a Nova of medium-heavy forces with another supporting Star of tracked units, Hugh fought the heavily Reinforced Company of Rockface units. Consisted of Marauders and Warhammers with Archers for firesupport, the Rockface unit was slow, mostly due to low end fusions, barely cruising 36.2 km/h.

By losing the bid, the Rockface commander defied Hugh his dues. Hugh simply asked that the bid be examined by the population. On one hand, the bid stated if Iron Dolphin loses, Rockface gets the ship, but if they lose Iron Dolphin gets the planet. By winning and losing, it was meant victory or defeat by Rockface standards... running away from an active battle was considered defeat, which is what the commander did in his Warhammer.

More news from the front...

On Rabbits Feet and a Wing of a Prayer!

During a recent attack on the planet of Watership Down, the combined naval forces of the Word of Blake and their allies, the Society, deployed a gas bombardment on the peaceful populace below. Killing hundreds of thousands and injuring millions with an aerosol delivered Phosgene derivative, all in an act to cover their tracks from the real goal, the stealing of Mako-class IDS Flipper. From it's unknown location a savior appears, that of the newest York-class IDS Stormrider. Hot on the trail of the gasser unit that decimated Watership Down in late December 3139. Stormrider was released secretly a few months later in February 3140 to track them down.
