Big if... 

Tomoko Harada, she is an older 50+(??) O5P Spacer, who is acting as the chief Aerospace Tech for the force.   She can put together Aerospace crafts from scrap and well chewing gum, 100kph tape, and paperclips.  Since joining the force she been happy to see "full supply bins" as it makes maintance so much easier.

Damage Report by Chief Aerospace Tech of the Tennyo: Tomoko Harada

The loss of all twelve Tennyo fighter craft to the Smoke Jaguars naturally makes recovery and salvage efforts that much more difficult but after reviewing the damage there is room for hope. Thankfully many of our aerospace fighter designs had a second identical or similar model in service. These ‘pairs’ should enable us to restore at least one of them to operation shortly because we can not only cannibalize the one for parts but we carried twice the parts for repairs in the field. Sadly, both Sais were the exception to this as they were too badly savaged by repeated Jaguar attacks to salvage either of them. In a few days a SL-15R Slayer and SL-25 Samurai should be operational followed by a Thunderbird and Transgressor. Further work is required to see what sort of loadout these craft will feature but I am confident that this will be accomplished within the week. The Shilone, the other Samurai, and maybe the Stuka can be return to service eventually after our return home but right now we lack all the necessary parts to get them flying. Due to damage done and salvage operations to get the other fighters ready a Slayer, Transgressor, and Thunderbird are now being written off as completely destroyed. This brings the total damage to five fighters lost, four returning to service soon, and three salvaged for future service.

The still alien nature of Clan technology as well as our unfamiliarity with its inner workings and the complete lack of any spare components makes efforts to repair their salvaged craft impossible at the moment. In accordance with directives from command we have simply recovered and packaged the remnants of the Jaguars sixteen aerospace fighters. I’d estimate that nine of these fighters could be returned to service if they were InnerSphere craft but since they are Clan maybe four. It is hard to say without the exact know how or opportunity to work on them, however, that is my best guess. The sealed cargo containers are scheduled to be loaded onto the Mule class Dropship as soon as possible. This orbital pickup will occur sometime before our departure from Rockland.

I certainly hope the Dragon appreciates that treasure trove we're sending...  ::)

Interrogation Report by Commander of the Marine Detachment: Kenji Araki

The questioning of Point Commander Zaesh was quite revealing and required little physical effort. The aging commander of the Fourth Point of Charlie Command Star of the Psi Galaxy Command Trinary piloted a Xerxes during the orbital battle. Disabled by the DCS Fukuryu this veteran trueborn aerospace warrior of the minor Hyon Suk bloodhouse displayed a clear hatred of the Draconis Combine in particular and our ‘dezgra’ tactics. Going into detail about House Kurita’s ‘ancient treachery’ perpetrated against the Star League and drawing a direct link to our ‘deceitful tactics’ used against his Smoke Jaguars Clan during the invasion there wasn’t much doubt about his ‘righteous cause’. The same can be said for the other prisoners who have attempted suicide or ‘bondsref’ as they call it. Every single one of them is convinced that we are mere bandits unworthy of any honor and one implied some sort of great punishment awaiting our unit on planet. We are working on obtaining specifics but wanted to inform you as soon as possible that these Jaguars can’t be trusted to behave in an honorable fashion. Since our goal was to duel them in honorable combat from the start I though it would be of the utmost importance to inform you immediately of these first impressions.

That cognitive dissonance isn't going to be resolved before we engage on the ground...  >:D

Unfortunately, our entire RP season has not come together here. Combination of real life events have really conspired to completely waylay BattleTech fun, sad.  :'( I have many events planned including the next chapter of the Battle for Rockland between the Jaguar Psi Galaxy (mostly the 10th PGC) and the Sohei. Hopefully things will start coming together soon and we will get to this bloodbath in the making. Meanwhile, I'm working on complying my Book of Locusts.  ;)

Hoping to hear how much they are enjoying Long Tom Rounds landing among them

Someone had to beat the drum like we will beat the Smoked Kitty Pirates

it will be us, if we can play "outside" the box.  these Pirates have already shown they have no honor so...
