Ingersoll's Armored Cavalry

Unit: Ingersoll's Armored Cavalry
Registry: LA-SC-08-01
Status: SUCCESSFUL
Time frame: From 01/01/3096 to 09/01/3096

CONTRACT SUMMARY:
Our potential employer, the LAAF and specificlly Hauptmann-General William von Frisch, has requested a combined arms mercenary company that can handle a battle of manuvere and avoid any pitched battles. The planet was recently conquored by ULTRA forces before being handed over to Agatha Marik's FWL.

The Hauptmann-General wishes us to reduce the enemy garrison's strength, although they outnumber us by a significant margin. Thus we are to avoid any pitched battles and bleed the enemy of resources for the length of the campaign. The previous Lyran garrison was last reported as have 60% of their combat strength left before engaging in guerilla operations against the invaders, thus we cannot count on them being a significant factor in our combat plans. With luck, their ASF forces will be relatively intact, as we will be able to use them to interdict the planet.

The enemy is spread across 4 spaceports on 4 seperate continents, so the Seraphim will be getting quite the workout moving us around. We will likely need to be making hot-drops into the wilderness and then make approaches against enemy supply dumps and barracks through the mountainous terrain to maintain some element of surprise. But the Seraphim will be too vulnerable to be making full landings without local knowledge of enemy defenses. Also, the enemy is likely to have superior drop capacity to us, and we cannot afford to be caught in a pitched battle around our sole dropship. Angel Squadron will be getting a full workout this mission to both keep the Seraphim safe during drops, aswell as hunting down any enemy transports that might be bringing in supplies. It'll be time to fly a pirate flag and keep military shipping from reaching the surface, unless we can get to the wreck sight first.

Unit: Ingersoll's Armored Cavalry
Registry: LA-DC-04-06
Status: SUCCESSFUL
Time frame: From February 1st 3097 to June 1st 3097

CONTRACT SUMMARY:
Ingersoll’s Armored Cavalry makes planet fall onto Donegal by February 1st 3097. They meet with their employer’s contact, University of Washington’s President Collin Grady, who is the on world representative for Nashan Diversified. The IAC is shown to their lodging quarters, an abandoned Donegal Planetary Defense base and it’s remote former ammunition storage facilities. Major Ingersoll gets his salvaged Military Hardware down from his two DropShip’s and dispatches the two Unions, each with a flight of AeroSpace Fighter’s, back to provide early warnings at the JumpPoints; one to the Nadir, one to the Zenith.

The IAC Command Staff ‘persuades’ President Collin Grady to allow the IAC to distribute their MASH vehicles, integrated as part of the University’s ROTC program, to U-WASH’s main campus for addition security. One such MASH vehicle is a Saxon APC MASH and it will contain a squad of Steele Dagger SpecOps Battle Armor. Ninety percent of the IAC assignment goes off without a hitch. Major Erik Ingersoll set’s up patrol assignments, random security checks on students, U-WASH Faculty, and professors alike. The IAC spend the first half of their time on Donegal hiring personnel from the Donegal Depot hiring facility and bringing their salvaged gear up to spec, most notably a Phoenix Hawk, a Vindicator, and a Stinger. The Major submits a Purchase Order for an additional Shadow Hawk, an Osiris, a Wasp, a Badger Tracked Transport, a BattleMech Recovery Vehicle, a Buffel Engineering Support Vehicle, two Seydlitz and two Corsair AeroSpace Fighters while on Donegal. The IAC purchases a Javelin from the Lyran Alliance's Black Market as well. The IAC also hires three platoons of combat Infantry and are getting them up to speed and training by working closely with the ComStar Agents and the Lyran Intelligence Corps.

The first sign of trouble comes late in their tour when there is an attack on a U-WASH remote campus town. The town is not covered as part of the IAC contract. Major Ingersoll and Captain Gunther Price have some words concerning this. The Major is content to follow the contract to the letter of the law, Gunther feels differently. Being a loyal Mechwarrior, if nothing else, Gunther waits until their contract with Nashan Diversified is concluded before embarking on a ‘Barter Mission’. The IAC won’t get paid but they will be allowed to keep all salvage. Gunther gets sign off from Major Ingersoll and only takes volunteers for the climactic battle against the Covenant Force that has been laying and waiting on Donegal for the past two years. The IAC salvages the following:

VEHICLES
Gun Trailer LRM (3x LRM 10)
Gun Trailer Thumper
Kestrel VTOL (SRM)
Kestrel VTOL (SRM)
Gabriel Reconnaissance Hovercraft (ERSL)
Light Military Tactical Trailer (LRM)

Unit: Ingersoll's Armored Cavalry
Registry: CC-SA-04-01
Status: SUCCESSFUL
Time frame: From July 1st 3097 to November 1st 3097

CONTRACT SUMMARY:
Ingersoll’s Armored Cavalry leaves Terra headed for Tantara after retrieving salvage and recruiting a new ‘Mechwarrior to head up their Scout Lance, Lieutenant Leonard ‘Sal’ Sanders. They make 15 jumps in 52 days to arrive in the Tantara system by July 1st broadcasting a Merchant Freighter IFF code throughout their trek through ConMag space. Upon entering the Tantara system, the IAC docks at the SpaceStation of Tantara’s moon, Kalinda. Through HUMINT intel and clandestine spying they discover that Kalinda does not harbor the Military SpacePorts nor the Storage Facilities that the IAC is searching for. A Kalinda Space Harbor Technician is compromised to uncover the exact location of the IAC targets, they reside on Tantara proper. Making their way to the planet, the IAC encounters an AeroSpace sortie wanting to fly close enough to get a visual ID on their ‘Merchant Marine Freighter’ and are jammed via ECM, engaged by the IAC fighter wing and are subsequently shot down. As the IAC breaks into Tantara’s upper atmosphere they send out a false distress signal and drop below the planetary radar to Hot Drop on the Main continent of Hyland. They spend the first six weeks on world reconning the Storage Facilities and Spaceports on Hyland, Weston, and Maille and conducting searches for the subterranean Star League Repair Base on the Iavarone Artic shelf. The IAC command staff selects the Tronstad Military SpacePort, the Cobalt and Rohini II storage Facilities as their targets. There are others but either they are too remote or currently have no traffic or material stored in them yet. They draw up a plan and dole out forces. In the mean time, the IAC Intel Officer locates the repair base. Major Ingersoll gathers all his forces at the entrance to breech. One inside the massive underground labyrinth they actually discover a brand new, never been used, assault class, Goliath GOL-1H. Unfortunately, they can not take it for salvage because they have no room aboard the Sword of Valor Union class DropShip and do not want to disassemble it for fear of not being able to put it back together again. After a couple more weeks of planning and preparation, they IAC launch three simultaneous yet separate attacks on the Military SpacePort and Storage Facilities. Having achieved a margin of success, the IAC exfiltrate the planet.
