From 1st November 3091 to 1st November 3092

Cut off and isolated from House Kurita supply lines, trapped behind House Marik’s enemy lines on Rigil Kentares, the Ronin’s accept an underground contract from former Faction Ambassador Hejito Momoguchi to liberate the Triumvirate (Yorii, Asta, Saffel, & Altair) from House Marik’s trade embargos. Onishi dispatches Tai-i Kintaro Tanaka’s DEST Team to corroborate and verify intel. In lightning blitz attacks, the Ronin’s hit Yorii, Asta, and Altair simultaneously led by three of the four Ronin’s ‘Mech lances and supporting forces.

Up close and personal, Onishi witnesses the hardships inflicted upon her former people by the troops of Agatha Rousette-Marik on in a the throes of a moral dilemma she dedicates her victories to House Kurita in the hopes of stirring a response from her Coordinator, Hohiro Kurita. But when none is forthcoming and her thirst is not sated, her weary forces purge ahead and consume even more planets in honor of the Draconis Combine. Her Warlord, Isoroku Kurita, is outraged at her insolence and launches a campaign aimed at destroying her and her Razan’s Ronins, also without the Coordinator’s consent nor approval.

Fighting a two front war, alone and cut off, with Marik’s Demichev Division at her rear and facing Isoroku’s Dieron Regulars at her front, Onishi request Sho-ka MaKayla to use whatever resources she has available in summoning the vaunted Yakuza Clans to come to the Ronin’s aid. The Ronin’s manage to stay one step ahead of Agatha’s troops and Isoroku’s Regulars and even outwit the legendary Bounty Hunter long enough to take Saffel.

Status: SUCCESSFUL
From Dec 11 3092 Ends June 11 3093

The Razan’s Ronin get cajoled into taking this contract by DCPS Liaison Sho-sa Emanuel Parker. Tai-i Tanaka Kintaro from the Razan’s Ronins DEST Team Shadow Battalion caught wind of it and left Dieron early to deploy to Skondia. The Ronins land on world under the protection of 15th Dieron Regulars and 24th Dieron Regulars. After a month in system the Ronins uncover possible locations of the rebel leader of the Free Skondia Mutineers , Sathen Sakamoto.

Tai-sa Onishi Razan is on board with Skondia’s governor, Hasani Saadiq, to assemble a joint operation task force to capture the rebel leader. The Joint Operation Task Forces is made up of Razan’s own Heavy Response DEST platoon, a platoon from Skondia’s local law enforcement SWAT division, and Skondia’s Militia GIA or Global Intelligence Agency. Despite their best efforts they fail.

Subsequently alerted that Governor Saadiq has called in Mercenaries to hunt him down, Sathen Sakamoto retaliates with a full battalion of ‘Mechs. Outnumbered by 3 to 1 odds the Razan command is nearly overran in the four days of grueling ‘Mech to ‘Mech combat. But in a valiant effort Razan’s assault lance led by Tai-i Owen Callaghan arrives in time to save Onishi’s command. However, Sathen Sakamoto escapes again.

After an extensive repair and refit the Ronin’s are primed to try and apprehend Sathen Sakamoto again. Intel uncovers a renegade Teppô moving across the Sheen continent. Ronin command develops a plan that will allow them to follow the Teppô back to the Free Skondia Mutineers stronghold crush the resistance in one fell swoop and capture Sakamoto called ‘Operation: Cleansing Plague’. This time the Joint Task Force will include the entire Mercenary Battalion and a platoon from the Covert Operations Division of the Skondia Planetary Defense Force. Things do not go quite as according to plan; however. The Ronin’s loose a transport chopper , an Oo-Suzumebachi small craft, and a hover tank. But after an intense gun fight and an exciting aerial dog fight the Razan’s Ronin’s get there man.

Unit: Razan's Ronins

Status: SUCCESSFUL
November 1st 3093 to March 3rd 3094

The important Dieron system is scheduled for recapture during wave II of ‘Operation: Sunrise’. DCMS High-Command has elected to use mercenaries for deep strikes into ULTRA-occupied territory. Tai-sa (Colonel) Onishi Razan accepts the mission on behalf of her Razan Ronin’s to identify, captured, gather further intelligence, disrupt enemy supply chains and their communications networks, to destroy or disable high-priority targets and encourage Dieron’s local resistance.

This contract calls for a highly-skilled, highly motivated mercenary unit with their own 'Mechs of small to moderate size to perform Guerilla styled strikes in the Dieron system. Once the contracted unit jumps into the Dieron system, they will be unsupported as no DCMS or ISF assets are available. Razan’s Ronins jump in-system only to find it garrison by a single vehicle regiment of ULTRA from the Free World’s League Military due to its place far behind the front lines. It doesn’t stay this way for long; however, before the arrival of the 15th ULTRA Luczenko Reinforced ‘Mech Battalion; consisting of 48 Battlemechs accompanied by a second Regiment of vehicles from the 816th ULTRA Panzer Division.

The Free Worlds League lands their 15th ULTRA Luczenko Assets in Dieron's capital city spaceport of Salamanca, uncontested by the Ronin’s. Its not long before the 15th's Lambda Company attempts an ambush of Razan’s Ronins. The 15th Lambda Company is severely out flanked, out maneuvered, and out gunned. They lose two 'Mechs in their failed attempt to ambush Razan's Ronins.

The Ronins sub-contract their forces out as a security force to Terada Yard Warship components in exchange for the resources that Terada can offer in the form of orbital satellite coverage and repair facilities. The local Yakuza Shingiin (counselor) - men of special knowledge who influence the daily business - discovers this and being that it will directly interfere with his smuggling operation he begins peddling intel back to the 15th command staff in hopes of eliminating the threat that the Ronins pose.

Razan’s Ronins encounter the Luczenko Division’s Gamma and Kappa ‘Mech companies and yet again successfully out maneuvered them gaining valuable intelligence on enemy strengths and positions. Two weeks later, armed with intel obtained from the Yakuza Shingiin, Reizei Degawa, the onplanet overall ULTRA Force Commander, Johann Kutsonov, dispatches all three 15th Luczenko ‘Mech companies to ensnare the Ronin’s . Through quick thinking, stern tactical doctrine, and a whole lot of luck - the Ronin’s inflict heavy losses on Luczenko Battalion’s assets while suffering minimal damage themselves.

In a fit of rage, Force Commander Johann Kutsonov assassinates Reizei Degawa, Dieron’s local Yakuza Shingiin, accusing him of supplying his command with ‘Bad Intel’, fueling the planets resistance cells loyal to House Kurita. After one cell’s failed attempt on Kutsonov life, he imposes planet-wide martial law causing the populace to go from simmering to boiling over with hostilities. In an ill-advised attack from his remaining and breveted company commanders, Kutsonov launches an all out war, with himself at the head, aimed at crushing the Ronin’s resistance once and for all. In a heroic act, Tai-i (Captain) John Mendez of the Razan’s Ronins, Ronin’s Legion ‘Mech Battalion, severely injures Kutsonov removing the Force Commander permanently from the action, and allowing Onishi’s command to escape the battlefield.

Terada Yard Warship components unravels the entire smuggling ring and their own breech of security involving Reizei Degawa and vowed to make things right with the Ronins by giving them parts, supplies, components, technicians, anything and everything that the need. Armed with the influx of men and material, Razan’s Ronins launch a well coordinated, surprise attack, on Christmas Morning at the Salamanca spaceport, the base of the 15th Luczenko Battalion. After suffering heavy losses the 15th Luczenko Battalion agrees to leave Dieron. Unbeknown to Onishi, they withdraw on orders from their Captain-General Agatha Rousset-Marik through orders handed down by General Mikhail Chigorin.

In the aftermath of the Spaceports near destruction, the planetary governor forcibly request that the Ronins abandon their contracts to the MRBC and to Terada Yard and leave Dieron within the next 24 hours. Onishi vehemently objects reminding the Governor that her unit does not possess enough DropShips to lift all their ‘Mechs off world on such a short notice. Akeda Degawa, Reizei Degawa son, thought to have been slain on a national tri-vid broadcast at the hands of Force Commander Johann Kutsonov, re-appears and makes arrangements for Onishi Ronin to ‘acquire’ the Overlord-Class DropShip, the Heaven Scent.

Razan’s Ronins pack up and boost off world.

Unit: Razan's Ronins
Registry: FW-OR-02-04
Status: SUCCESSFUL
April 1st 3094 to June 1st 3094

Waiting in Dieron’s Orbit since Christmas of 3093 after being ousted from the planet by Governor Paolo Verellas for damage to Dieron’s Spaceport’s Infrastructure in their final confrontation with the ULTRA 15th Luczenko Battalion; until their contract expired March 1st 3094, the Ronins’ finally enter into new contract negotiations. The Ronins’ were not hired by the Governor so there was a dispute on his authority in ordering them to leave world so Onishi remained in Dieron’s Orbit until their contract’s conclusion date and there was still a dispute at the MRBC.

The Ronins’ were ‘given’ an Overlord Class DropShip by a local Dieron Yakuza family. She dreads what her ‘acquiesce’ for the Yakuza gratitude might be. The Overlord had a squadron of AeroSpace fighters docked on board owned by an out of work Mercenary Outfit. Onishi brought them on board too as Ronin. And when her Razan’s Ronins arrived at the JumpPoint, they put an Invader class JumpShip that had just concluded a five year long contract on their payroll as well. The Ronins then jumped to the Terran System to pick up an Aurora Class DropShip, other military hardware, and a Black Market Fortress Class DropShip before heading to Telos IV for their next contract; an Objective Raid.

Telos IV is strategically important in proximity to the line of recharge stations on the route to Terra from the core worlds of the Draconis Combine. The planet is protected by a planetary defense network that would cost the 15th Dieron Regulars a lot more in manpower and hardware than they are willing to risk to take the Telos system. That’s where the Ronins come in. Razan’s Ronins are needed to temporarily disable this system to allow the invasion force to make approach without the extra risk. It is a BattleSat System Defense Station that was a relic of the Star League days, equipped with capital grade weapons to defend against approaching fleets or invasion forces bound for the surface.

The Ronins’ devise a plan to jump a single JumpShip, Hydra’s Bane, into the Telos IV system at a pirate point and to send one of their small Oo Suzumebachi crafts to ferry three battle armor squads close enough to launch through space to the BattleSat Station. The Oo Suzumebachi approaches under the guise that it is a derelict suffering from damage. The BattleSat Station dispatches a rescue team to investigate and board her, and the Oo Suzumebachi high tails it out of range back to the Pirate Point. Meanwhile after a brief firefight, the Battle Armor Strike Team successfully disabled the BattleSat Station and subdued its crew.

The rest of the Ronins’ Jump into system and head for the planet’s surface unchallenged. Onishi puts a team together of conventional forces to perform a HALO drop to verify that her Ronins are not dropping into some sort of an elaborate ambush. Once verified, she brings the rest of the Razan’s Ronins in and establishes a beachhead on the northern continent of Dulles. After unloading their cargo, Onishi dispatches both of her Aerodyne DropShips, a Gazelle and an Aurora Class, with a squad of battle armor onboard back to separate JumpPoints as well as a JumpShip to each JumpPoint. With the BattleSat Station off line, her forces will act as an Early Warning System and a Rapid Response Team via the use of Pirate Points.

After several missed opportunities of reaching conflicts, planet wide - a little too late, one of her rapid response teams catches a break and receives a distress signal from Luthien Armor Works manufacturing and refining facility on Dulles and actually reaches it while hostilities are in progress. The Ronins still reach Luthien Armor Works too late to prevent the wholesale slaughter of the entire bases personnel but they do arrive in time to successfully neutralize the attackers. They uncover valuable intel from the attacking forces corpses. The intel and evidence points to an Identity cover up, so whoever betrayed Luthien Armor Works would be presumed dead with all the others. That person could assume a new identity and live off the profits of their crime with no chance of repercussions. What Doctor Haney (the identity someone try to cover up) didn’t count on was Razan’s Ronins forensics.

A vehicle Lance from the Ronin’s Steel Dragon Battalion, launches an operation to capture an independent scientist, a one Doctor Haney. After navigating through a city in full blown rebellion, a battle between the 15th Dieron Regulars verses ULTRA Assets, and various mercenary units; Shadow Platoon captures Doctor Haney and turns him over to Tai-sa Elizabeth Carrols.

Onishi is considering the supplemental contract for her Ronins: A Planetary Assault.

Unit: Razan's Ronins
Registry: FW-PA-02-01
Status: SUCCESSFUL
From June 1st 3094 to August 1st 3094

At the behest of Tai-sa Elizabeth Carrols, Commanding Officer of the 15th Dieron Regulars, Onishi Razan’s; Razan’s Ronins are requested to stay on station for an additional two months as a reserve force to participate in the invasion at Tai-sa's Carrols discretion, since the Ronins have already completed all this mission objectives on the Objective Raid contract to the same system. Onishi was ordered by her Modern Innovated Tactics Unit Handlers, to put a new resurgence of Land Air ‘Mechs through some real world testing; on a contract on Bjarred. She dispatched the required force, a company, on to Bjarred via the Combined Arms Union Class Transport, Dragon’s Nest.

Onishi accepts the Planetary Assault supplemental for the Telos IV system, figuring she could use the time to conduct some training exercises in the event that Tai-sa Carrols does not utilize her Ronins and to finally get her Fortress Class DropShip, the Ulvenwald, repaired and online. The Razan’s Ronins maintains imminent domain over the capture Telos IV Space Station, however; relinquishes their control of the two Invader Class JumpShips to DCMS Procurement Department. And besides that, the pay is Good.

The Ronins park most of their units in orbit above Telos IV, giving her AeroSpace contingents an extreme responsibility, however; Onishi’s Ronins are not so fortunate as to sit out an entire contract with assault level reimbursement without firing a single shot. Her unit gets the call to Hotdrop a company onto the planet to disable a forward enemy base. After successfully razing the base, a week later the entire Ronin’s unit gets the call to reinforce the 15th in engaging the enemy.

Razan's Ronins

Unit: Razan's Ronins
Registry: DC-PH-04-03
Status: SUCCESSFUL
From December 1st 3094 to April 1st 3095

After successful contract negotiations with a member of the MRBC on the supplemental for Telos IV, Tai-sa (Colonel) Onishi Razan is ordered, by her Modern Innovated Tactics Unit Handlers, to put a new resurgence of Land Air ‘Mechs through some real world testing; via a contract on the MHB Depot world, Bjarred. Its clear Rimward of the Draconis Combine on the border of House Kurita and Clan Snow Raven. Her Razan’s Ronins maintains imminent domain over the capture Telos IV Space Station, however; relinquishes their control of the two Invader Class JumpShips to DCMS Procurement Department.

The DCMS Modern Innovated Tactics Liaison wants Razan’s Ronins to investigate escalated raiding activity in and around the Bjarred Prefecture. Over the past several months the fringes of the Pesht district have seen increased raiding activity by what ISF Intel believes to be pirates, though none of House Kurita’s attempts to stop these raids has resulted in the successful capture of any interrogatable personnel. The Bjarred Prefecture has seen the most notable rise in this kind of activity. The Internal Security Force has several leads, but has been unable to positively identify any of the attackers thus far.

The Ronins’ mission is to find out who is conducting these raids and put a stop to them. Razan’s Ronins are to report all of their findings directly to DCMS Liaison, Tai-sa Bernard Johnsson, Commanding Officer of the 7th Pesht Regulars , the Kurita unit stationed on Bjarred V at a crumbling Castle Brian known as the Bird's Roost. The Pesht Regulars are under strict orders not to leave the system and have limited aerospace and naval assets.

Onishi, decides not use the Ronin’s JumpShips to reach Bjarred but hires a third party JumpShip Captain to ferry her Union Class DropShip to the Prefecture. Her reasoning is two fold. First, she uses the time to get her potential LAM Pilots weeded out and up to speed on their AeroSpace Fighter training; Second, to repair and bring the Fortress Class DropShip, the Ulvenwald, online.

The Razan’s Ronins unit dispatches the required force, a company, on to Bjarred. The company is under the command of Mechwarrior Chu-i (Lieutenant), Tushio Sakai and consist of a reinforced (with an AeroSpace Fighter Pilot) Recon LAM Lance, Dragon’s Eye; the vehicle Scout Lance, Awakening Dragon; a DEST PA(L)Breech Platoon, Bravo Platoon; two Gray Death Scout Squads; the Ronin’s VTOL Recon Flight, Stealthy Dragon; and a Long Range Aerospace Fighter Patrol Flight, Emerald Dragon. The Combined arms company musters out aboard the Combined Arms Union Class Transport, Dragon’s Nest.

Upon landing the Dragon’s Nest at the Bird’s Roost, Chu-i (Lieutenant) Tushio discovers the Bernard is actually Bernice - Tai-sa (Colonel) Bernice 'Bernard' Johnsson. Due to the clandestine nature of Tushio mission the Combine Officer and the Ronin instantly build friction one towards the other. The first three months on world Tushio can not confirm or deny any of the ISF ‘Leads’, however; in the final month of the contract, after the on world Ronins’ establish their own network of informants, Tushio gets a break.

Tushio uncovers the identity of the raiders, a pirate band which call themselves Ebon Raptors . In a quick skirmish the Ronins’ destroy two of Ebon Raptors LAMs. The next time the Ronins’ encounter Ebon Raptor is in a Diversionary Raid launched by the enemy that results in the loss of four enemy LAMs. However; the diversion was successful as it allowed Ebon Raptor time to lift from Bjarred.

The Ronins’ follow the Raptors to Tarnby and Altona were the Ronins’ are ambushed losing one of their own LAM pilots and capture an Ebon Raptor LAM Warrior. They interrogate the prisoner briefly before he dies. All they uncover is cryptic information.

Onishi Razan will take up the supplemental contract off a Defensive Campaign

Razan's Ronins

Postby Remington von Wolffe » Sat Jul 08, 2017 5:10 pm

Unit: Razan's Ronins
Registry: DC-PA-06-07
Status: SUCCESSFUL
From July 1st 3095 to December 1st 3095

SUMMARY:
This operation starts on Ascella March 17th 3095, with flash backs about the last operation on Telos IV. The Ronins have been on Ascella for the past two months where two weeks of furlough for everyone in the Regiment, they come back for some training, reorganization, and mustering out. The Ronins boost for the Nadir JumpPoint no later than March 20th. There is a 36 day transit time from Ascella’s surface to its JumpPoint. They Ronins gather their new MH assets at the JumpPoint, 6 BattleMechs, 6 ASF, 10 Vehicles, a Satellite, 4 small crafts, 8 Trailers, and a Vigilant Corvette Class WarShip, the RF MacCreary. The Warship is contractually the Ronins by order of Isaac C Anderson a representative of the Interstellar Consulting Association.

Onishi Razan has negotiated a contract that will allow her Regiment to participate in Operation Sunrise while at the same time she is also continuing with a supplemental contract with her company on Bjarred. Onishi and the Loremaster could not reach an agreement on the terms of said contract, so in the interim, the Ronins opted to hold off on the supplemental. With the diversionary invasions of the FWL now in full swing on Styx by the Mercenary command, the Aura Wings, as well as on Saffel by the 11th Ghost Regiment, the DCMS feels that the Free Worlds League is ripe for the picking.

Dieron and Altair are to be taken in this next wave. The Professional Soldiery Liaison has been instructed by DCMS High Command to seek any properly equipped mercenary commands to supplement our invasion forces. And a mercenary command with their own access to a WarShip is definitely properly equipped. For the Dieron Invasion, the Summer's Storm Mercenary Command has already been contracted to participate.

The fresh 49th Dieron Regulars have been chosen to lead the attack, and Tai-sa Evgeni Morgan has overall command of the invasion force. Any additional contracted units would be under his command. The 49th has been unaffected by the war with House Marik to this point and they are both eager and determined. The 49th will be accompanied by the 5th Sword of Light Regiment and the Dragoness WarShip Squadron.

Dieron is a cramped world because of its many large mountain ranges. What space is available exists in countless small valleys, and earthquakes are a frequent problem. With so little to recommend the planet, it is amazing that over five billion people live here. The Ronins make planet fall on Dieron May 27th 3095 with their contract due to begin in earnest on June 1st. Razan’s Ronins land on the planet’s largest continent, Gaspar, which is located in the equatorial zone. The Regiment land at the Capitol City’s Salamanca Spaceport. The Ronon’s Command Staff report to the 49th Dieron Regulars CO, Tai-sa (Colonel) brevetted to Komanda (Commander), Evgeni Morgan.

The 49th regiment has suffered greatly from an ongoing 5-way fight for the world between 5th Sword of Light, a Mercenary Unit - Summer's Storm , an ULTRA Division and a local cell of the Kokuryu-kai, better known as the Black Dragon Society. Onishi Razan and the Komanda are in agreeance that the 49th doesn't need the Ronins getting caught in the middle of a brewing conflict between the Draconis Combine and the Free Worlds League. What they do need however; is a unit to hunt down the Kokuryu-kai insurgents. Onishi volunteers her command for the assignment.

The terrain and the fact that the population is clustered together on Gaspar in the Stinson River valley allows for a lot of invasive control. Razan’s Ronin perform a ‘Bait-and-Switch’ counterinsurgency op with a fake convoy of supplies dressed up as livery trucks. They simulate a vehicle break down and "abandon" it at a strategic location. What appears to be crates of small arms and C4 is in fact crates with battle armor troopers hidden inside.

The Ronin’s also launch a covert HUMINT Op (intelligence gathering through human interaction) primarily aimed at the monitoring of the Hospital’s wounded area, for troops and refugees. Through an interrogation from a successful HUMINT Op, the Ronin’s uncover intel on a Black Dragon Cell in Gaspar’s other major city, New Leon, on the other side of the main land.

The Ronin’s DEST Battalion and their unarmored Infantry Battalion perform a joint operation to snatch high ranking Kokuryu-kai fanatics thereby disrupting the Black Dragon Society terror cells and prohibiting their involvement in the fight for Dieron. The operation fails miserably as the Kokuryu-kai prove to be far more fanatic and tenacious than the Ronins High Command ever thought possible. They took out two ‘Mechs from a Lance, several vehicles from a company, and a full platoon of Infantry with just RAGs (Rocket-Assisted Grenade), Heavy SRM Launchers and Light Anti-Vehicle Rocket Launchers.

Razan's Ronins

Postby Remington von Wolffe » Fri Nov 10, 2017 6:04 am

Unit: Razan's Ronins
Registry: DC-DR-06-02
Status: SUCCESSFUL
From July 1st 3096 to January 1st 3097

SUMMARY:
After the conclusion of their last contract, a Planetary Assault on Dieron, where the Ronins got their asses handed to them by the Black Dragon Society (the Kokuryu-kai), Tai-sa Onishi Razan decides not to accept the supplemental. In Lieu of the loss of lives (her romantic interest included) and the number of injured, the Tai-sa is having a confidence problem.

The Ronin’s boost from Dieron leaving the conquest of the District Capital World to Tai-sa Evgeni Morgan's 49th Dieron Regulars who were still embroiled in a bitter holding action against the FWLM and CSoT Forces. Simply going through the motions in her depressed fugue condition, she negotiates a contract for a Diversionary Raid out on Stapelfeld mostly to link up with the company the Ronin’s had dispatched to Bjarred. But first the Ronin’s travel to the Terran Corridor to pick up their salvage and purchases and to hire some replacement personnel.

The situation on Stapelfeld is that the planet’s defenders, the 20th Pesht Regulars, were overrun by a Clan Unit, Snow Raven’s, Alpha Galaxy's, Sixth Raven Battle Cluster and the Fifth Raven Wing Cluster. The Dragon wants to preserve the 20th’s unit integrity and wants the Ronin’s to create a diversion that will tie up the 5th Raven Wing Cluster, four Trinaries, or 120 AeroSpace Fighters to give the 20th time to board their transports and make for a pirate point. Even if they were merely Inner Sphere fighters, against the Ronin’s 3 Squadrons (18 Fighters) and the RF MacCreary, her Vigilant Class WarShip, Onishi didn’t like those odds. But against Clan Fighters, it was nigh impossible. Her High Command Staff would have to come up with something.

It is a six month journey from Terra to Stapelfeld. The Ronin’s spend that time on character development and training, integrating, and acclimating their newest recruits into the Ronins. During this time, the Loremaster decides that he will concede on some of his contract sticking points and so therefore, tentatively, Onishi accepts the supplemental to Bjarred.

The Ronin’s have a Senior Officer’s briefing before jumping into the Stapelfeld System. The six months cooped up inside the Overlord class DropShip, the Heaven’s Scent, does nothing to alleviate Onishi worsening depression. Razan’s Ronins risked jumping in a pirate point as their intel did not provide them with data on which JumpPoint the Clan WarShip was stationed at and the Ronin's WarShip Captain did not want to tangle with the Snow Raven's, Storm Crow Naval Pursuit Star’s, Clan Carrak Class WarShip the Nestling. Neutrino Detectors found the Nestling at the Nadir JumpPoint, so Onishi dispatch her three AeroSpace Squadrons to ambush the Snow Raven AeroSpace Star at the Zenith JumpPoint, while the RF MacCreary deployed the Ronin’s two satellites in geostationary orbit at approximately 36,000 km from Stapelfeld and the Ronin’s made planetfall on the Southern tip of the Southern Polar continent of Inner Alster.

From Pirate Point to planet cut the travel time in half, but two days was still plenty of time for the Snow Raven’s to mount a resistance. Cloud cover kept either side from launching fighters but the Ronins dropped into a Hot LZ. Still lacking her usual confidence and slightly Gun Shy, the Tai-sa pulls her unit through the botched landing and rendezvous with the 20th Pehst Regulars and survivors.

After setting up her Bivouac and observing the telemetry data provided by her orbiting satellites, Onishi puts together a mission to gather intel from a forward observation base to be accomplished by her Mech's Recon and Reconnoiter Lances combined with her Vehicle Recon Company. After the successful op and a data dump and analyzation later, her Intel Officer determines the entire scope of operations concerning the Star Bridge War and the future plans of the Clan and that the Snow Raven’s do not garrison their fighters at the SpacePort proper but instead at an off site air base facility. At any given time it will be occupied by at least two full trinaries either down or in for maintenance, repair, refit, refueling, or pilot R&R.

The Ronin’s High Command concocts the idea of hitting the Clan Snow Raven AeroSpace Assets while they’re still grounded. The operation is handed off to a Ronin’s adhoc lance of stealth ‘Mechs and their DEST PA(L) platoons. And it was conducted under the shroud of night fall so that increased their mission damage to THREE full trinaries. At the instant the mushroom cloud from the explosion appeared, the 20th, who were already loaded inside their ‘Mech transports, boosted for their Pirate Point. Tai-sa Onishi Ronin covered her returning Operatives rear and subsequently engaged the Cluster Commander, Star Colonel Alberto Francesca, in a Zellbrigen duel and won and with this victory her confidence came flooding back in one big tidal wave of relief. She also salvaged the Star Colonel's Dire Wolf battlemech as Isorla. A few hours later, the Ronins boosted off world too.
